As your baby shower inches ever closer, it’s easy to slip into the “we need this” mindset. So you load your baby registry with bottle cleaners, bibs, and diapers. Great! Those things are a definite must, but what about the items that may not be 100% required for a baby and are still super helpful to have? They’re easy to forget, but a bummer if you do. We’re talking about nursery items, helpful gifts for the parents, and bath time gift sets. Need inspiration for your baby registry? We’ve got it!
1. The Cutest Nursery
Need something on your nursery’s bookshelves to keep all those classic kids’ books company? How about a princess carriage bank? This one is porcelain with white, pink, and silver accents. It looks pretty while also teaching her about saving money when she gets a little older.
Stuffed animals are an absolute must. They keep your little one company and may even become some of his best friends. If you’ve got a dino-themed baby shower or nursery, add this Doug the Dinosaur plush toy and sock set to your registry.
The nursery can feel a little dull if the walls are bare. Add some attractive, baby-friendly wall art with this woodland animals wall art trio. They feature soft pastel colors that go with any nursery.
No bedtime is complete without counting sheep. This two-piece set features a soft blanket and a plush lamb.
2. Prepared Parents
Okay, there are a few things that you’ll need in order to make your baby’s first months go as smoothly as possible. For starters, you’re going to need a diaper bag. This one features a chic black and white pattern.
It comes with a spacious interior, 9 inside pockets, and 8 outside pockets. It has a matching changing pad and small removable bag. Best of all, you can strap it to your stroller.
Baby shower guests love to give diaper cakes, so it’s a good idea to add one to your baby registry. This pretty two-tier diaper cake comes with 30 size-1 diapers. So useful!
3. Great Gifts for Baby
You’ve got some generous people coming to your baby shower, so add a few big gifts onto your baby registry. This bath time gift set comes with just about everything you need for a baby’s bath, including baby shampoo and a load of rubber duckies.
A hooded towel is a must for when it’s time to dry off your little one. This soft blue towel makes him look like he’s an adorable little shark.
Of course, there’s a pink version of the hooded shark towel as well. This one comes with a bath mitt and spa slippers.
Cloth bibs are great to have on hand, but you have to pop them in the washer every time they get dirty. This silicone bib is much easier to clean and withstands big messes.
