When I am going to attend a baby shower, I always want to find the cutest or most unique gift. With the most amazing things out there, sometimes the mom to be seems to have it all. Finding that unique gift, or even just something they would never remember or know to ask for, can be difficult. Here are some suggestions for shower gifts for the mom that has everything!
We received a variety of samples for inclusion in this guide. All opinions are our own.
Gifts for Baby
One of the cutest gifts out there for any mom-to-be is the mom invented Hugaboo Infant Floor Seat. Unlike other baby floor seats, the Hugaboo is the premiere in comfort and cuteness! Designed for babies between 3 months and 10 months, the Hugaboo allows baby to check out the world around them in the most comfortable, squishy yet supportive fabric. Hugaboo infant seat can be placed by itself in a front loading washer machine and dried in a dryer. It has loops to attach toys to keep your baby entertained. Available in super cute patterns and colors for both boys and girls, or even neutral. The Hugaboo will definitely make any new mom happy. Available from Hugaboo.
A sweet set of bottles are always a welcome addition at any shower. Especially when they are as cute, and versatile as The Tommee Tippee Tip it Up Bottle to Cup Set. For use with babies over 3 months, the bottle to cup set contains two feeding bottles and one first sips transitioning cup. Perfect for the transition from breast to bottle, Tommee Tippee is specially designed to feel just like mom. When baby is ready, the super soft spout of the first sips cup will help them start the transition from bottle to cup. Since it also has a non-spill valve, there is no worry of a leaky mess when baby is learning. Tommee Tippee is available in tons of retail locations including Target.
Baby shoes are always a gift that gets a squeal of delight at a shower. Many new mom’s find that most baby shoes just don’t stay on little kicking feet. Lili Collection leather moccasins are made to stay on and look cute! Hand crafted from super soft leather, the Lili Collection has baby shoes in the stylish and whimsical design you are looking for. Cute animocs and even sprinkle shoes (made with sprinkles!) are designed to delight and last. The Lili Collection also has coordinating purses for the little miss that wants to be like mom! The best thing is that the shoes don’t cut or pinch the feet or ankles, so they are made to be worn for more than just a quick trip out. They will definitely get attention, so pick up a couple pairs, one for now….and one to grow into at lilicollection.com.
Crib sheets are something I never seem to have enough of! The BSensible Baby 2 in 1 Crib and Toddler Bed Fitted Sheet Waterproof Breathable Mattress Protection is the perfect addition to any shower gift. First off, it’s waterproof! If the diaper fails in the middle of the night, the mattress is protected. Made with a 100% natural textile, Tencel, it’s also soft and breathable, unlike other waterproof sheets. Designed to keep cool in the summer and warm in the winter, it’s great year round. Since baby also has sensitive skin, the BSensible Fitted Sheet is also hypoallergenic and anti-bacterial. The fabric is dust mite proof and odor-reducing, it will take baby right from crib to toddler bed. Available at Amazon.com in 8 different colors to compliment any nursery!
There is nothing as sweet and snuggly as a newborn baby. Although they will receive other pairs of footie pajamas as their shower, none will be as soft as the 100% Peruvian Pima Cotton Noomie Zipper Footie. Soft and cozy, these footie pj’s are perfect against baby’s skin. The zipper closure makes diaper changes super quick (nothing worse than figuring out snaps in the middle of the night!). The print is simple and soft, classic yet modern and makes the perfect shower gift. The Noomie Zipper Footie is available at BabyNoomie.com along with other adorable layette products.
One of the best things to give at a baby shower is baby toys. Mom’s to be don’t often think about adding toys to their registry..let’s face it, there’s already so many other things to remember. The Yookidoo Stack n Spray Tub Fountain is a great toy that is fun for babies and toddlers alike! It features stackable boats and characters, perfect for developing hand and eye coordination, but when stacked on the base, water flows through each and out the top. Each figure has a different cool water effect and will surprise and delight any child…even the older kids love playing with this one. The base can attach to the tub bottom, and it draws water up through the center. Yookidoo Stack n Spray Tub Fountain is available at Toys R Us.
You can’t go wrong with adding some pacifiers to a baby shower gift. When I had my last baby, I wish I had brought one with me to the hospital since one wasn’t provided. Finding one that baby will like can be difficult, but the brand that 68% of new babies accepted the first time during a recent poll was the Tommee Tippee pacifier. Designed to feel more like a mother’s breast, to help alleviate the nipple confusion fear and give mommy a calm and content baby. Tommee Tippee has pacifiers in many different designs and styles, each orthodontic and designed to optimize baby acceptance. Tommee Tippee brand pacifiers are available in retail locations everywhere including Target.
The one thing every pregnant mother craves is sleep. One of my favorite gifts ever, is something to give the mommy to be a fighting chance at a bit more sleep. The Boppy Custom Fit Total Body Pillow is a physical therapist developed body pillow designed to give the extra support needed throughout pregnancy. Because it is super flexible, with 3 pieces, it can be used in the right combination that works best. It provides head/neck support, back and belly support as well as hip, leg and ankle support…really the whole package. It’s machine washable for easy care and comes in a cute modern design. The Boppy Custom Fit Total Body Pillow can be used after pregnancy for a super comfy nap. We love Boppy for baby…grab mommy’s here, along with other great Boppy products.
I love products that can be used for more than one thing. The Noomie Signature Blanket is like the swiss army knife of baby products. It can be used to keep your baby snuggled and swaddled to keep them asleep at night, keep out a draft on their stroller or car seat and it can be used as a nursing cover. This item is like no other! It has two easy snaps that go around the neck that provide great cover for feeding time. Made with 100% Peruvian pima cotton, it’s one of the highest quality fabric available for babies. The pattern is super sweet, just like a newborn baby. The Noomie Signature Blanket is available at Babynoomie.com along with other adorable layette products.
When I had my first baby I knew exactly what kind of breast pump I wanted, what kind of bottles. I knew what brands of clothing my kids would wear. I knew what type of carseat I had to have. I thought I had it all figured out, boy was I wrong in some areas, the biggest being the importance of a good nursing bra. Now I have three kids and I know better. I am currently exclusively breastfeeding my 3-month old and I am completely in love with my Hotmilk Eclipse nursing bra! It features 100% cotton lined cups for skin breathability, designed with stretch on the top cup to allow for growth, and easy one handed drop down cups for breastfeeding. Besides being made from amazing materials that will hold up after unclipping and nursing over and over again, it is absolutely stunning! No more do you have to feel frumpy and boring while wearing a nursing bra. With sizes from A-H, Hotmilk gives you the most sexy, trend setting, empowering maternity lingerie, and every mom deserves to feel gorgeous! See more styles here.
