Cute Idea For Baby Shower Gift

you don’t have to know whether the parents are having a baby boy or girl to buy them one of the following baby shower gifts as they’re for any gender:

1. Stroller. Many parents-to-be like to select a stroller themselves, but if you know which one they want, then this is one baby shower gift that is sure to get plenty of use.

2. Crib. This is obviously a nursery essential, but there are so many to choose from and many factors to consider, safety being the most important. If you opt for this, start by finding out what type of crib the parents would like, and go for that.

3. Crib mattress. If you’ve purchased the crib, you might also like to get the crib mattress at the same time. Oftentimes, these two pieces are purchased together for safety reasons, because the mattress should fit snugly into the crib.

4. Changing table. Here’s another nursery staple that will be put to good use and makes a great gift. As is the case with the crib, the parents might have their eye on a specific style or brand, so if it’s not specified in the registry, it’s important to find out what type of changing table they would like.

5. Baby bouncer or swing. There are many baby bouncers and/or swings to choose from, and you’ll want to check the child age and weight requirements of a particular style before you purchase it. Remember, some seats are designed for newborns, while others are designed for older babies.

6. Glider/rocking chair. A sturdy glider or rocking chair will keep either parent comfy while feeding or cuddling the baby, and the gentle back-and-forth motion can help soothe the little one. You could also consider giving a small side table that can go next to the chair for items needed during feeding, or even a footstool.

7. High chair. This will come in handy when the baby eventually starts on solid foods. There are so many different types of high chairs on the market ranging from cute and budget-friendly to contemporary and quite expensive. If the parents haven’t specified the model they would like in the registry, you might like to check with them.

8. Activity center. An activity center can provide babies with hours of fun and may also help boost their development. This is the type of gift older babies can begin to use just before they learn to walk.

Baby Shower Gifts for the Nursery

Selecting a good baby shower gift for the nursery can be tricky. What do the parents really need? Here are some great baby shower gift ideas that are absolute baby must-have items for the nursery for either a boy or a girl:

9. Diaper pail. A diaper pail is a must for storing those soiled diapers until they are taken out to the trash can. Some of the better diaper pails tend to be pricey, but the parents will appreciate having an odor-free home.

10. Bedding. During the first year of life, babies need only a fitted bottom sheet in their crib—loose bedding items such as top sheets, pillows, quilts, and blankets need to stay out of the crib to reduce the risks of SIDS (Sudden Infant Death Syndrome) and suffocation. But you might like to purchase a matching bedding set and/or a blanket that could be used later on, during the toddler stage. There are very adorable sheet sets on the market, and parents will inevitably need multiple sets down the line.

11. Mobiles. Choose something colorful—red is one of the first colors the baby will be able to see. There are also mobiles that play music, so there’s no shortage of options. Find out if the baby will have a themed nursery, then select a mobile to match.

12. Night-light. A dim night-light can help settle the baby and make it easier for parents to walk around without stubbing a toe during nighttime feedings.

13. Sound machine. When it comes to lulling babies to sleep, playing white noise or another comforting sound from a sound machine can do the trick. Most sound machines offer a variety of options from shushing noises to womb-like echoes to help lull a baby to sleep.

14. Swaddle blankets. These blankets have more than just one use, making them a perfect baby shower gift. In addition to wrapping a newborn securely and providing comfort, swaddle blankets and even receiving blankets can double as burp cloths, tummy time mats, nursing covers, and more.

15. Babyproofing items. There are all kinds of safety items the new family will need, including electric outlet covers, corner covers, and baby gates.
