While you could give a single item for a baby shower, sometimes the new parents need way more than just a rattle or baby book. In that case, gift baskets are where it’s at. They’re filled with both adorable and useful items to make the first few months of parenthood a breeze.
As you’re looking through baskets, you may consider going with an animal theme. Some baby showers have a theme of their own, like a circus elephant theme or a bath time rubber duckie event.
