4 of the Best Gifts to Give at a Baby Shower
One of your family members or dear friends is having a baby! Congratulations are in order. Between planning the shower and baking sweet treats, you’ll also need to get the new baby a gift. But what to get?
If you’re stumped, don’t worry. Between this guide and the baby shower registry, you’re sure to find the perfect present. Here are four of the best gifts to give at a baby shower.
While gifts like diapers and formula may not be as exciting as baby toys or clothes, they are essential. These items get expensive quickly, so the expecting parents are sure to appreciate your gift. If you aren’t sure what they still need, check their baby shower registry.
Personalized items can be a sweet way to get something special for the baby. Be as creative as you like here. Options like pillows, blankets, or wall decor for the nursery are sure to be a hit with the little one and their parents. If they don’t already have one, you could also get them a special lovey with their name on it.
The parents of the newborn are sure to need plenty of little outfits. However, make sure to check the registry or coordinate with other guests before the shower. Many times, people tend to buy clothes for a newborn or a three-month-old because the clothing is so little and sweet.
The parents-to-be will need quite a bit more clothing than this, though. If possible, stagger the sizes of clothing you buy, choosing items that will fit the baby from newborn stages to their first birthday. This will give the parents plenty of clothing for their little one’s first year of life and prevent clothing from going unworn.
Baby Books or Toys
Other sweet gifts to give at a baby shower are baby books or toys. Choose the perfect stuffed animal or chewable toy. If you know the parents’ favorite childhood books, buying new copies for their little one can be a sweet way to carry on the tradition, especially if the parents don’t have the originals anymore.
No matter what gift you choose, remember to have fun while celebrating this momentous occasion! If you’re in charge of hosting, take a moment to check out these great tips for hosting a baby shower.
