7 Best Baby Shower Gifts

Great excitement, joy, and anticipation surround the arrival of a new, precious baby. Family and friends can’t wait to shower the parents-to-be with everything they need to welcome their new little addition into the world.

Tips for Buying Baby Shower Gifts

  1. Buy from the registry, when possible: Who knows more of what they want than the parents-to-be? If they’re not registered, don’t worry; we have some great suggestions for you below!
  2. Be practical: Practical baby shower gifts are appreciated just as much (or maybe more) than cute or decorative gifts.
  3. Remember the cuddly factor: When buying blankets and clothing, those made of 100% organic cotton make cuddly and soft choices.
