There are endless amount of gift ideas out there, so we’ve narrowed it down to only the very best baby shower gifts. Read on to find something great to bring to your next baby shower!

Board Books and Soft Books:

Books are a great way for parents to bond with their babies while helping their baby develop essential social and verbal skills. The best books for for babies are board books and soft books. While there are likely amazing stories contained in hardcovers and paperback children’s books, babies are simply too curious about the object in front of them to keep those in good condition. Board books and especially soft books are ideal because babies can hold them, touch them, and explore them on their own terms.

Onesies in Different Sizes:

Onesies are the outfit-du-jour for many babies for the first few months of their life. They are easy to get on, easy to get off, and can go with just about any occasion. You can do the expectant mother a great favor by buying onesies in different sizes, so that the baby will always have something to wear even as they outgrow their old outfits.

Trendy baby clothing

Amber Teething Necklaces:

Amber teething necklaces can be a lifesaver for the parents of teething children. Amber teething necklaces are worn against the skin and work by reducing inflammation in the gums through something called succinic acid that gets absorbed when they are regularly worn. These necklaces work effectively to reduce the source of teething pain, and since they’re long-lasting, parents can use them for the baby’s entire teething process.

“Mom Time” Gift Sets:

Moms will definitely appreciate a gift set designed to help them relax when they finally do get a bit of down time. A “mom time” gift set can include items like an eye mask for taking a nap during the day, lotion for their tired hands and feet, as well as soothing lip balm and other products designed to make them feel better. You can even find sets designed for “mom and baby,” if you’d like to get something for the little one as well.

Relaxing Gift Sets and Candles

Social Media Backgrounds:

If you’ve been active on any type of social media in the past few years, you’ve probably seen an endless amount of baby-related social media backgrounds. The most common ones include backgrounds designed to be taken at 1-month intervals for the first year of a baby’s life, although there are others as well. If you know the expectant mother is a big fan of social media, why not gift them something they’ll love to use as they chronicle their growing baby!
