Headed to a friend or family member’s baby shower? Although it isn’t as common these days, some parents don’t find out the sex of their baby until he or she is born. Or maybe the parents know but they’ve asked guests to skip the pink and blue. At first thought, you might be worried that you won’t find anything to give as a baby shower gift.
But don’t worry! There are plenty of gender neutral baby shower gifts that any baby (and parent, for that matter) will love. Neutral colors and well-loved themes span across all genders.

This new baby is entering a world of possibilities. With your gift of a sleeping gown with a golden “Hello World,” he or she will be sleeping in style. This gown is for 0 to 6 months, so the family’s new addition will be able to wear it to bed right away.
2. Teddy Bear Bank
