You’ve been invited to a baby shower for your friend, family member or coworker. Great! Now what? It’s customary for guests to bring a gift for the upcoming baby and the new parents when attending a baby shower. The best gifts are both useful and fun, such as a teddy bear with a stack of infant diapers or burp cloths. The best way to do that is with a gift basket.
Sure, you could go through all of the trouble of creating a custom gift basket yourself, curating a bunch of useful and cute baby items, but that takes some serious time and effort. Instead, you could always get a pre-made gift basket for the baby shower. We’ve compiled a list of perfect gift baskets for any baby shower that the mom-to-be is sure to love.
1. Puppy Gift Basket
This personalized puppy gift basket has something for both the baby and the parents. The new arrival can play with the stuffed puppy while snuggling in the bodysuit and blanket. The parents can use the coffee mug and helpful “Pack Leader” canvas tote. It also comes with a canvas bin, bib, mittens and socks.
2. Floral Gift Basket
How about something soft and feminine but still tasteful and chic? This personalized floral gift basket is perfect for the parents of a baby girl but who shy away from the overly pink theme. The tote, bib, blanket and mittens feature a pretty floral pattern while the soft pink bodysuit says “Hello World.”
3. Safari Gift Basket
Gender neutral gift baskets are all the rage right now. They fit in whether the new parents know the sex of the baby or are keeping it a secret until the delivery. This safari gift basket works for any baby shower. After all, who doesn’t love animals? (Or cute stuffed zebras, for that matter!)
4. Nap Time Bear Gift Basket
Every baby needs a teddy bear! Get her this nap time gift basket and you may just be giving her the bear she sleeps with every night through childhood. It also comes with a blanket, bodysuit, onesie, booties and a handprint kit. It also comes in blue for your little man.
5. Dr. Seuss Gift Basket
When you think back on your childhood, you likely have a bunch of warm memories about reading Dr. Seuss books with your parents. Help the new parents build their library with a Dr. Seuss gift basket. It comes with six of the famous author’s best books as well as a few arts and crafts items. The tote can even be personalized.
6. Baby Einstein Gift Basket
You’ve probably heard of Baby Einstein. This series of books help teach the new baby as soon as their life begins. The gift basket comes with 12 Baby Einstein board books and an adorably cuddly Gund teddy bear.
