A Few Great Ideas For Baby Shower Gifts

Aug 17, 2007
For many people the idea of trying to find a really good baby gift for a baby shower is a difficult one. Even those of use who have children may have grown out of touch a little; I know I have since my son is now 16 years old and near six feet tall!

It doesn't have to be a daunting task and these days many couples already know the sex of the baby which makes it even easier on those doing the gifting.

One gift that anyone can use of course is a mobile. Depending on whether you know if a baby boy or girl is expected you can buy one that has a masculine or feminine theme and if you know the couple well and are privy to their choice of décor you may even match that.

Another nice gift that can come in handy is a baby quilt. This can be especially fun if you are one of those crafty people that like to sew. There are many things that can be done with a quilt. You can customize it with family items or if you have enough advance notice you can even have a square personalized by each guest that will be attending the baby shower.

Another nice and thoughtful thing you can do is to put together a scrapbook. This can be personalized with everyone in attendance adding to it and signing it and will be a treasure later on.

One person who is often overlooked is the prospective daddy. It will definitely be a welcome surprise to include a small gift for him to open with the mommy-to-be and other family members later.

If the baby shower is happening very close to the expected due date another thoughtful thing to do for both the mom and dad is to bring some prepared food dishes that can be frozen and reheated during that first week or so after mom and baby come home.

Of course, if all else fails you can't go wrong with diapers! Diapers can be an expensive burden on a new couple and will be most appreciated.

These ideas are just a guideline to get you started, I am sure you can think of many more. Just remember, the baby isn't going to be up and around for several months and giving gifts that make the work of raising a newborn baby easier will always be appreciated by both parents.
