How to choose the perfect baby shower gift

If you’re still stumped, consider these shopping tips:

Buy something practical

You can never go wrong with a practical gift that’ll make the parents’ lives a little easier. Think diapers, wipes, bibs, bottles and onesies.

Don’t forget about Mom

Guests can get so caught up buying cute clothes for the baby that they forget Mom needs things too. Spoil her with nice clothes, a spa day, skincare items or a babysitter for when she needs a break from the long nights.

Bigger is better

If you’re not sure what size clothing to get, opt for bigger. Newborn babies can vary in size, and some never fit into tiny newborn-sized clothing. Small babies will eventually grow into larger sizes.

Branch out with brands

Consider gifting several smaller boxes of diapers from different brands, since Mom won’t know which one works best until baby arrives.

Go in on a larger gift

If you know the parents are still in need of large items like a crib, stroller, car seat or high chair, see if you can get a few other people to chip in. Taking care of these more expensive necessities can be a huge help for new parents.

Check the registry

Many people create baby registries from one or more retailers before their shower. Check the invitation to see where the parents might be registered to find out exactly what they need.
