Is someone you know expecting a baby? Even if it isn’t their first child, it’s always nice to get an expecting mom a gift to show her that you care. We have a few baby shower gift ideas we know you’ll love.
One of these cute nappy cakes would make a great baby shower present for a newly expecting mom. You can choose from boy, girl or gender neutral. They are easy to order online and ship directly to the new mom. Nappy cakes and diaper cakes make an excellent choice if you can’t attend the baby shower and it will become a centerpiece at the baby shower whether you are there or not.
Gift baskets and layette sets also make a practical choice to give as a gift at a baby shower. Don’t go crazy buying baby clothes for the new mom and dad. Most new parents like picking out their own clothing. Focus on essentials like diapers, wipes, swaddling blankets, bibs, burp cloths, and baby socks. These things get used up pretty quickly and while it might not seem like a fancy gift, it’s plenty practical and will be very much appreciated.
Another cute baby shower gift idea is to have something personalized for the expecting parents like a wooden sign, a set of baby spoons, or a t-shirt that says “Baby [their last name] is coming!” If the expecting parents have other children, consider getting something for them that makes them feel included in the process. A personalized coloring book about their new sibling would be an excellent choice for younger kids.
The most practical and appreciated gift you can give to an expecting mother is a baby carrier! It will become the one item she uses more than anything else and will find that babywearing becomes part of her everyday life. That makes a baby carrier an indispensable gift which means it will be the most appreciated gift she will receive.
No matter what you choose, the expecting parents will appreciate the fact that you thought of them and their new little bundle!
