Unique Gift Ideas for a Baby Shower
Buy Baby Buy!
Babies are one of life's greatest treasures. They smell sweet, sleep constantly, and are unashamed of their bowel movements - absolutely phenomenal! If someone that you love has a baby, you know how special that child is, but how do you find a gift that is equally special?
Sure, clothes, diapers, and wipes are always a safe option, but there are abundant gifts for your bundle. Babies are only babies for a short time; invest in a gift that can be used for years to come!
Piggy banks are a fantastic gift for newborns that no one considers. It's never to early to start saving money! As an added bonus, people may donate their spare change to feed the fresh piggy!
Christmas Tree & Ornament
Even spring babies' first Christmas comes faster than expected! Get a little Christmas tree and/or a Baby's First Christmas ornament!
My aunt loves to buy babies Christmas trees! It's a really cute idea: parents can buy the baby a new ornament every year and on that glorious day that baby moves out, they have a starter set of ornaments!
Gift baby a keepsake for their first tooth and first haircut! Mom and Dad will certainly love this one. Often times, you can find a variety of keepsakes at the hospital gift shop; most hospitals have a special newborn gift shop on the labor and delivery area. You can also find keepsakes online.
Another gift that mom and dad will treasure, is a photo frame that shows how much their baby has grown.
Newborn/Family Photo Session
If you're feeling especially squirrelly, you can pay for a newborn and family photo session! If mom and dad are feeling up to it, there are also photographers who do Fresh 48 sessions that capture the baby's first few days of life in the hospital. These photos will be treasured forever.
If you ignore every piece of advice in this article, remember this: skip the gift bag and put your gifts in a basket! Storage cubes are also a great option. The parent may not realize it in the moment, but there is literally never enough storage space for all of baby's nonsense. Eventually, that basket or storage cube will used for clothes, toys, shoes, blankets, etc.
