Need Help Finding The Perfect Baby Shower Gift?

Mar 2, 2008
While some people have their own ideas as to where to shop for a baby shower gift, there are others who may love to shop but still have absolutely no clue as to where to get the perfect gift for mom and the new baby. The best solution for this is to discover the wonderful world of online retail before venturing out to your local shopping mall.

When beginning your quest for the perfect baby shower gift you may be surprised to learn that not every store carries baby-related items. Sometimes it takes a little work to find baby products that are different from what everyone else is buying. Searching online for a unique and creative gift is a great time saver and is also excellent for those who may live in a rural area without as many stores to choose from. But if you happen to live in an urban area there shouldn't be a problem finding something such as a department store like Macy's or one that specializes in children's items like Toys R Us.

Nordstrom and Pottery Barn are two yuppie favorites for newborns and many people who are attending a shower will take some of the favorite little newborn outfits and outerwear these two top retailers provide for their customers. The best of the best can be bought at baby clothing stores such as The Children's Place and Carter's Outlets. JC Penney still carries a wide selection of baby clothes and many other old favorites are around to ensure the gift you give for the baby will long be remembered as being a gift from you. Of course, that's only until the baby grows out of it if you buy clothes.

If you are looking for something that will be extremely useful for the new baby as well as the mom-to-be, consider a playpen or a car seat. While babies quickly outgrow carry-all seats, a car seat is adjustable and will last for a while. Car seats are also items that are often overlooked when shopping for baby shower gifts as many people tend to gravitate toward gifts such as clothing or bedding. Any of these items can be found at some of our well-known favorites as well as new super shopping centers. K-Mart, Wal-Mart and Target all carry a wide variety of baby related products such as playpens, car seats, clothing and bedding.

Wal-Mart and K-Mart also have a large selection of baby toys for the baby growing into a toddler. While you may not want to go overboard with this now, remember, the newborn will get an abundance of clothes and blankets for the infant stages but what about when the baby begins to toddle around. Then what? The second six months of a child's life can be a financially draining moment on the new parents too so make an effort to look into the future and see what they will need. When in doubt, buy an outfit for six months or older and throw in a gift card for good measure to be used later!

Before making a purchase, you may want to check online to see if there are any recalls or warnings about the particular products you are interested in. Consumer ratings site are especially helpful and offer advice about specific products. By doing your homework you can easily find a great and suitable baby gift.
