Baby shower gift options are endless. This collection gives you some pretty cool ideas to choose from. All of them are awesome and a pleasure to receive!
Babies travel too. And they need a lot of stuff. The great thing about this baby shower gift is that the gift receiver will need it for years to come. So it is not only a unique kind of gift but also practical.
Trunki the original Ride-On Suitcase for the little ones who would like to be wheeled to the next flight. Eight different styles and seven colors to choose from!
Go Plus 2 piece set. Give the baby a carry-on luggage and a backpack! This set is adorable. 4 styles to choose from. You can imagine the little one walking at the airport pulling this suitcase.
The little backpack can store the essentials needed during the flight.
And she would be so happy to use these to bring some extra clothes and a special sleep buddy when having a sleepover at Grandma’s.
2. Photo Book Subscription
We all take a ton of pictures of babies and kids in general. Sometimes it is just hard to put them in a scrapbook or even create a photo book online. There are some helpful apps that can make the process easy!
Give a subscription to a photo book service such as Groovebook or Chatbooks.
3. Baby Bunting
These cozy Baby Buntings from 1 of a Kind Baby Bunting come in various colors. It is beautiful, useful, and unique!
It has openings in the back to fit 5 point harness. You can also zip it open and lay it flat as a blanket. Keeps the baby warm and comfy on walks in the park.
4. Book Club Subscription
Reading to a child is such a special way to bond. Give a baby shower gift that keeps on giving: books delivered monthly! Any parent would be happy to receive new books on a regular basis.
My First Reading Club sends three to four age-appropriate books every month. They also include an activity book and a surprise for mom!
5. Baby Photo Props
6. Monkey Gift Basket
This Five Little Monkeys gift set is such a cute idea! The little plush monkey and banana rattle are adorable. The baby will love the soft blankie with a satin trim.
The gift set also includes a pretty basket, and a door hanger.
Cheap Baby Shower Gifts
What is cheap? I should define that for this post I think anything below $17. (At the time of writing this post all these items were below that amount.)
Babies need a lot of stuff. It seems that when a baby comes in the family his things are just all over the place. But sometimes we can overdo it. Read the post at Mommy Enlightened and find out what you need for baby and what you don’t.
These gifts are not only inexpensive but also awesome!!
7. Cup Strap
Babies love to drop their cups and toys on the floor. Let’s face it after awhile picking them up gets old. This cup strap keeps the cup from going out of the baby’s reach. Or at least you don’t have to bend aaaall the way down. Yes!
8. Hooded Towel
And not just any hooded towel but an awesomely cute one! Many options (over 20) to choose from. These towels are made of absorbent and soft terry cotton.
These are big enough for toddlers too and will make getting out of the bath fun!
9. Fun Colorful Rattle
Clip Clop Rattle is packed with fun features for a baby to explore. Many things for the baby to wonder and learn about. Mirror, beads, crinkle sounds, various textures etc.
Hours… well not at one time… but at least a few seconds or minutes of entertainment!
10. Door Cushion
Trying to take a look at the sleeping baby but don’t want to wake her up with the door closing sound… this door cushion muffles the sound. And it also said to prevent the sounds of slamming doors…
And with this in place you can prevent the kids from accidentally locking themselves in a room.
A practical, cheap, and unique baby shower gift.
11. Pacifier Pal
Have you noticed how babies nowadays have a stuffed animal hanging from the pacifier?
Having the cuddle buddy right there keeps the baby entertained and it also makes it easier for him to find the pacifier all by himself.
