5 Best Baby Shower Gift Ideas
So, you’ve been invited to a baby shower but you’re not sure what gift to bring? You’re not alone! Choosing the right baby shower gift can be a real challenge, no matter how well you know the new parents-to-be. It’s even harder if all of the good stuff has already been taken from the baby registry. Here are the top 5 items that are sure to be loved.
Organic Baby Washcloths
Sometimes the simplest gifts are the best, and that’s certainly true when it comes to washcloths. It’s all too easy to underestimate just how many messes new parents deal with daily, which is a big part of the reason we absolutely love these!
These luxuriously soft baby washcloths are great for bath time but also work great for mopping up all those little messes that come with being a parent.
They’re made from 100% GOTS-certified organic cotton zero-twist yarn so they can be washed hundreds of times without becoming rough and tattered like most washcloths.
Each pack comes with five washcloths so you can always have one at the ready. Choose from six color options to mix and match with any nursery vibe.
Organic Cotton Fitted Sheet
There are a million ways to make a home safe for a new baby, but perhaps the most critical is preparing their sleeping area. It’s not safe for newborn babies to cuddle up under blankets like the rest of us because even a thin piece of fabric could interfere with their breathing. That’s why aside from swaddling situations, newborns typically sleep in empty cribs.
That’s also why choosing baby bedding that won’t come loose in the crib is so important. As adults, it can be a minor inconvenience for our fitted sheet to come loose, but for babies, the consequences can be a lot more serious.
These Organic Cotton Fitted Sheets are the perfect size for all standard-sized crib mattresses (28x52 inches) with deep pockets and a strong elastic band to prevent them from coming loose.
They’re made from hypoallergenic, organic cotton, which means they’re totally safe on even the most delicate baby skin. They’re also machine washable, making cleanup from those inevitable baby messes a total breeze.
One of the best parts of being a parent is taking your child out on their very first adventures. It can also be quite challenging because you have to bring along countless baby supplies and it’s hard to know exactly what you’ll need. There are a million solutions for this from diaper caddy organizers to duffle bags, but it’s hard to top a classic backpack when it comes to storage on the go.
Hook a new parent up with this Diaper Backpack and they’ll have a stylish, comfortable way to haul all of their baby essentials while keeping their hands totally free.
This backpack has twelve pockets and even includes a removable changing pad so parents can hygienically change diapers just about anywhere. The straps are cleverly designed to hang comfortably over shoulders or stroller handles for even more versatility and easier transport!
4-in-1 Canopy Car Seat Cover
The 4-in-1 Canopy Car Seat Cover is one of the most versatile baby shower gifts you can give.
On the surface, it might simply seem like a practical cover designed to solve a simple problem: Keeping the sun out of a baby’s eyes or to protect them from the light when they are snoozing. But the benefits of a car seat canopy extend much further.
The soft, breathable material isn’t just great for blocking the sun, it can also strategically be wrapped around your body for use as a nursing privacy cover. You can also use it over any place that you need to put your baby but you’re not feeling 100% okay with the cleanliness of, like a shopping cart or high chair. Let’s not forget that you can even use it to wipe up small dribbles and spills in a pinch!
Muslin Bamboo Baby Towel and Blanket
This wonderfully soft blanket is made from six layers of breathable, ultra-soft bamboo and pure cotton to create a super plush yet breathable snuggle zone for little babies. At 47 x 47 inches, it’s the ideal size and material for swaddling but also works as a surface for tummy time or as the backdrop of a baby photoshoot.
It’s also super easy to wash, so exhausted parents can just toss it in the washing machine when it gets dirty.
