6 Top Baby Shower Gifts for a Newborn and Mom

Posted by lauren roland at 8:08 AM

Diapers and diaper bags
Giving diapers to parents at this time can be done in different ways, either by giving diaper animals, cakes, bags etc. Diapers are useful gifts for a baby shower and more preferable because they are not expensive and you can either buy them or make them with the help of some simple instructions from books and the internet.

Present for Mom and Dad
Offering something that parents can make use of at a baby shower is not a bad idea. Giving first time parents in particular books about parenting can really be helpful. You can also give stretch mark solutions as it is a common problem for expecting mothers if you are a friend because most people do not take such gifts from people they are not familiar with (no matter how helpful!)

Furniture for the Baby
Baby cabinets and cribs are great baby furniture's you can offer to both the baby and the parents. An organizer and a dresser can be memorable gifts to the couples if they don't have them yet. You can ask close friends or the new parents themselves to ensure that you are not spending your money on a gift that may end up in the trash can.

Baby Clothes
One of the top baby shower gifts are clothes, they are a universal present for baby showers and other baby occasions. Couples need plenty of baby clothes for their new babies and you can get some cute clothes and if possible, expensive ones. You can also buy toddler clothes rather than the infant sets so that the baby will have new clothes to wear as they get older.

Present Basket
A basket of goodies is one of the simplest presents you can buy for a baby shower. You can also buy gifts with the same color as the basket to make a a cute monochromatic theme and it also allows you to put some smaller items in a bigger present so you can offer the new parents otherthings they may need like wet tissues, powder, cologne, diaper pins and anything the baby can have fun with.

Baby Gear
Baby gear is another ideal gift for a baby shower because new parents normally have many expenses to make but there are a few items which they know are necessary for day to day life. These include items like cribs, strollers, bouncers, car seats, etc. If you can get any of these important items as a present it will definitely ease off a lot of pressure off of the expecting parents. These items may be too expensive for you alone, so try to share the cost with another family member or guest who will be in the shower to make things much easier for both you and the new parents.

Some other top baby shower gifts that you can get are the baby carrier, sleep kit, bedding for the infant and silver spoons which apart from being an attractive gift are also made popular by tradition. You can make your gift remarkable by thinking of what the couple and their baby really need and make parenting much easier with your gift.
