Favorite Baby Shower Gifts


After attending Janelle's baby shower last weekend, I've been thinking about my favorite baby shower gifts.  When in doubt (and if your budget allows), getting  a "big" gift off of their registry is always great.  All those big items really add up!  If you know they'll be covered by family and friends, then these are my favorite non-registry options.

Freshly Picked Moccasins The Wrap Aden + Anais Swaddle Blankets Chewbeads Teething Necklaces Sophie Lee Marie Onesies Board Books

 

1. Freshly Picked Mocassins- These seriously are the best shoes when babies are first starting to walk. Rilo wore hers for a good 6 months before they were finally too small.  They stay on little feet unlike most shoes which is a huge bonus.  Plus they are the hippest of the hip...I mean Mason Kardashian rocks them!

 

2. Solly Baby Wrap- Unlike other wraps, this one is lighter and stretchier plus comes in the best stripes and colors.  I absolutely love to wear my babies, especially in the first few months.

 

3. Aden & Anais swaddle blankets- Any mom who has used these can attest that these are the best.  Big, the perfect weight and they get softer with use.

 

4. Chewbeads- I got to check these out at the H.O.T. Product Party and I love the idea.  Jewelry that babies can chew on safely? Genuis!  I have a big order of these on the way as we speak.

 

5. Sophie- I don't know what it is about her, but all babies love to chew on Sophie!

 

6. Lee Marie onesies- I adore these onesies!  They are handmade from fun vintage fabrics and I love the contrasting binding.  Definitely not anything you see in stores!

 

7. Board books- You can't go wrong with anything Sandra Boynton or the "In My..." series.  The ones shown are some of our favorites!

 

Other great options include diapers (or cloth diapers), wipes and gift cards.  I always include a little outfit but I like to get clothes that are 12+ months.  I think most people get a ton of smaller sized clothes and then they hit 1 year (which goes by SO quickly) and you have absolutely nothing.

 

Do you have a favorite gift to give?  What about a favorite baby gift you've received?

    ditto on the a+a swaddle blankets, I think that fabric is perfect for swaddling. I also liked the halo sleep sack. I think older kid clothes are good, it is just important to remember what the weather is gonna be when kids are x months old--sometimes the outfits that people give are for the wrong season!

    # 1, 3 & 5... yes, yes & yes. My favorite board book to give is Grumpy Bird, but my go to baby shower gift are the JJ Cole picnic | beach | everywhere blanket that folds up - parents LOVE them.
