Baby Shower Gift Ideas

I love creating these gift guides and although I am past the baby stage with my own children, I have friends and family who are still in that stage of life. I love giving baby recommendations on what they might need and what they definitely don't. Everyone is different. This year I am not only excited to recommend some amazing products but give some away as well.

Unique Baby Shower Themes to Wow Your Guests

When it comes to planning a baby shower, you want the day to be special. The last thing you want is for your guests to look back on the event and feel like it was just another typical ‘shower in, shower out’ affair. An exciting way to make your baby shower stand out from all the others is by coming up with unique baby shower themes that will have everyone talking long after they’ve gone home. Here are some fun and memorable ideas that can take your party from ordinary to extraordinary!

DIY Baby Shower Diaper Cake with Surprise

I made this Diaper Cake way back for my sister-in-law's first child's baby shower in 2019 and never shared it! I can't believe that I never did because I was so excited with how it turned out. I love the idea of diaper cakes because they make cute shower decor while still being functional.

DIY Baby Shower Diaper Cake with Surprise

This one I made with an exciting twist. Traditionally people would either fill the middle with tons of rolled up diapers, baby lotion, or even baby formula, but I decided to put a bottle of my sister-in-law's favorite wine for her to find. She loved it so much and it is still one of the most talked about gifts she received. 

Best Gift Ideas for Expectant Parents

I have loved creating these lists through the years. Products have changed so much since my babies were little. Today, I wanted to introduce you to some brands that I have fallen in love with over the years and a few new ones too that I recently came across, but all that would make PERFECT gift ideas for expectant parents. I know times are look a little different right now and I personally think drive by baby showers are a great idea, but just because things are a little different right now, don't put your life or family on hold. Enjoy the journey!

Classic Books for Baby Shower Gift Ideas

There is a new trend at baby showers where you give a book instead of a card. I absolutely LOVE this trend. I think it is a great to build a baby's first library and plus you can actually get use out of them instead of cards which end up sitting in a box for years.

Baby Shower Gift Idea: Give Books Instead of Cards

I know so many people who are pregnant right now that I put together a HUGE list of Unique Baby Shower Gifts for the New Mom. My favorite gift idea though is to give a book instead of a card. Although appreciated, my children have their baby shower cards stuffed into a box somewhere. With a book you can write a sweet note inside the front cover, sign your name, date it, and you have given something that is useful and sure to be viewed often. They even make personalized story books now too.

There are two new board books from Studio Fun and Silver Dolphin that I would love to share with you for just this occasion.

Gender Neutral Baby Shower Gift Ideas

When husband and I got pregnant with our son, I asked him if we could wait until delivery to find out what we were having. I had heard about gender regret and didn't want that to be an issue for us. I don't know if I would have been upset if we had another girl or not. I truly think I just wanted to have a healthy baby, but I knew my husband wanted a boy. So I convinced him to wait.

My husband's cousin offered to throw us a shower because she said, "Every baby deserves to be celebrated." My mother-in-law asked me, "well what do you need? Don't you already have everything?" Good question. Because if we were having a boy, no we didn't have everything because we would need clothes. But we weren't finding out, so what do you get the couple who isn't finding out AND this isn't their first baby?

So here is a list of things that were great for us to receive, my favorite baby shower gifts in general, and hopefully they will help you with some ideas too.
