Practical & Unique Baby Shower Gifts

Every mother is grateful and happy to have a baby shower. It relieves the family and wallet of necessary and immediate purchases in preparation for the baby's birth. The cutest gifts to receive are undoubtedly the tiny, colorful clothes. They are also the most common gifts. However, babies can wear only so many clothes, especially since they grow so fast! The mother may feel guilty if Baby doesn't wear every outfit. Furthermore, I think mothers would also appreciate getting other baby items they need. Below are practical and unique baby shower gifts you can get next time you receive an invitation.


Practical
  • Clothes size 9-12 month
  • Hangers
  • Socks/booties
  • Towels and wash cloths
  • Baby bathtub
  • Grooming set
  • Diapers and wipes
  • Baby monitor
  • Wrap, sling, or other infant carrier
  • Diaper bag, filled with the essentials if you can afford it
  • Bibs
  • Thermometer
  • Milk storage bags
  • Nursing pads
  • Sippy cups
  • Bottle brush and drying rack
  • Carseat mirror
  • Crib sheets
  • Nightlights
  • Umbrella stroller

Unique
  • Anything handmade by you
  • Matching outfits for Baby and siblings, if applicable
  • Sleep sacks
  • Decorations for Baby's room (find out the colors or theme first)
  • Framed photo of the family to hang in Baby's room
  • Baby Signing Time DVDs
  • Parenting books (be sure to know the mother's parenting style)
  • Bumbo seat
  • Shopping cart cover
  • Baby's first Christmas ornament or outfit (make sure this isn't a relative's special job)
