March 5, 2020 | by amanda ryan
When you have a friend, coworker, or relative who’s expanding their family, you want to make their baby shower a memorable and fun experience. While the games, food, and location are huge parts of a baby shower, so are the gifts!
What you choose to get the soon-to-be mama is going to help tremendously, as money may be tight in the beginning. If you aren’t sure what to get the mom-to-be in your life, keep reading for some ideas!
Newborns will go through So Many diapers that a new mom can never have enough! (And, it’s especially appreciated if you gift a variety of sizes)
Where you have diapers, you’re going to need wipes. And let’s be real, even when there are no longer diapers, wipes are still a must-have mom staple.
Like diapers, a new mom can never have too many of these.
3. Burp Rags
If you’ve raised or even watched a newborn baby, you know what drooly, little spit up beings they are. Having burp rags on hand is a must for a new mom and having extras between washes is always helpful. (Disposable diapers make for absorbent and fabulous burp rags).
4. Bottle Warmer
Infants drink a lot of milk, so a bottle warmer is a handy-helping necessity for a new mom. These aren’t super cheap, so any mom-to-be would appreciate this gift.
With how messy babies are, a newborn can never have too many clothes! Consider not only buying clothes for newborns, but for a few different months as well. Babies grow so quickly that it can be difficult for parents to keep up with it financially.
6. Diaper Bag
With all those diapers comes a need for a diaper bag. Consider grabbing the new mama a diaper bag that can do double duty (purse, backpack, etc.) to cut down on the number of things they need to carry.
7. Baby Monitor
Baby monitors are a great gift to get for a baby shower because the best brands can be a little bit pricey and the perfect opportunity for a group gift.
As you shop and prepare for a baby shower, anything you choose to get will be appreciated. New moms can use all the help they can get, so splurge a little bit if you can and help them get their nursery all stocked up! If you don’t have a ton to spend, even a pack of diapers will be helpful.
