Baby Shower Gift Ideas for Every Kind of Mom!
- Diapers- You can NEVER have enough diapers
2. Wipes/Travel Wipe Case
3. Gift Cards- Food places, Babies R Us, Target, Walmart, etc.
4. Medicine Kit– For new moms especially. There’s nothing worse than taking a late night trip to the store because the baby’s sick. This kit has everything you’ll need!
5. Diaper Rash Cream- I’ve tried many kinds, so far my favorite is the Aquaphor Ointment, not the cream! The Ointment.
6. Small Hangers
8. Baby Books- My favorite is Oh The Places You’ll Go, By Dr. Suess, Mom & Dad can read it to the baby as they grow up, and give it as a send-off gift for graduation, or a birthday, with a sweet message inside.
9. Baby clothes- Baby clothes can be expensive, so when a mom has to buy a lot of them it starts to add up, that’s why baby clothes are such a nice gift to receive
10. Sleepers/Gowns– these come in so handy for the first month, they are a must
13. Pacifiers- My baby always preferred the NUK brand
14. Pacifier Clips- Some people think these aren’t necessary. I, on the other hand, would consider this a definite need! Plus, they come in some pretty cute designs
15. Wipe Warmer
16. Bath Caddy– I wish I would’ve had this! Makes bathing look so much more comfortable
17. Baby Bath
18. Bath Toys
19. Baby Towels/Wash Cloths

26. Educational Toys
27. Burp Rags
30. Boppy Pillow
31. Johnny Jumper
35. Small stroller- people often buy the stroller that goes along with their car seat, and later buy the smaller, more portable one
36. Stroller storage– This looks awesome! I’m ordering it for myself
37. Sassy Seat/Portable High Chair- Out of all that I’ve looked into, this one is by far my favorite. It’s affordable, you can hook it to the table or the countertop, or you can place in it a chair as to turn it into a high chair, and it comes with an attachable tray!
38. Bibby Mat- Even with a regular bib, children always get food in their lap, that’s why this Bibby Mat is such a great invention
39. Baby Dishes-Bowls, Spoons, Reusable Squeeze Pouches… those applesauce pouches are so expensive! We use the refillable pouches and ave ourselves a lot on those alone! They’re great for yogurt and baby food too.
40. Diaper Genie/Refills
41. Diaper Bag
42. Mommy and Me Outfits
43. Gift Certificate for a newborn/family photo shoot

59. Baby Monitor- I have one that has a camera, it’s a life saver
60. Nightlights- for the Nursery
