Baby Shower Gift Ideas – 9 Great Gifts for the Baby

There are plenty of baby shower gift ideas out there, and deciding what to get for the new family member can feel overwhelming. We’ve listed a few gifts for the baby that truly are must-haves.

1. Bibs

Babies don’t need bibs from the get-go, but they’re always great to have at home for when it is time to start trying solid foods. Bibs come in an array of colors and help keep at least a little bit of the mess at bay.

2. Dinnerware Set

The same goes here as for the bibs. A dinnerware set is a great gift because it will be needed when it is time to start self-feeding. Let’s not forget that it also makes a very cute gift!

3. Clothing

This is a no brainer, but clothes are a must, of course. A top tip is to gift clothes that are a couple sizes up since babies grow quickly.

4. Baby Bouncer

Keeping up with everyday tasks can be tricky with a newborn. So, a baby bouncer is perfect when parents need a moment to have their hands free. The great thing about BabyBjörn baby bouncers is that they rock naturally from the baby’s movements and stimulate development and motor skills.

5. Bouncer Toy

A bouncer toy is a cute gift to add if someone else called dibs on gifting a bouncer (or if you feel like gifting both!). The great thing about bouncer toys is that they help stimulate the baby’s development and are super fun for the baby to play with. You can find our collection of bouncer toys here.

6. Baby Carrier

A baby carrier is a great aid for parents to help them meet their baby’s need for closeness while still getting things done. It really is a necessity that makes the biggest difference.

7. Diaper Cake

This is a baby shower classic! If there’s one thing babies always need, it’s diapers. By rolling diapers and shaping them into a cake, the gift becomes both thoughtful and fun. Are you curious about how you make one? Check out our article on how to make a diaper cake.

8. Travel Crib or Play Yard

A travel crib or play yard is a great way to keep an eye on the little one while still letting them play and work on their motor skills. We can almost guarantee that both parents and baby will appreciate this fun gift.


9. Baby Thermometer

Babies will have a fever at some point, so a baby thermometer is a must. The new digital thermometers are super easy and safe to use and are always good to have on hand.

Gifts Ideas for Moms and Dads

Let’s not forget to show the expectant parents some extra love! A gift specifically for the parents-to-be is both sweet and thoughtful and will likely be very much appreciated as they adjust to becoming parents. Check out our best baby shower gift ideas for the moms and dads below.

A Thoughtful Basket for the Parents

Put together a nice basket with things that you know the parents-to-be would love. Maybe their favorite snacks, tea flavors or cookies paired with something fun like movie tickets.


Gift Card for a Mealtime Service

 Having a baby turns your life upside down. Many parents live in the baby bubble at the beginning, and it might be tricky to find time for cooking. A gift card for a mealtime service or food delivery is a great gift that most parents would absolutely love.

A Home-cooked Meal

The same goes here as for the previous tip since cooking easily slips far down the priority list. Cook and bring some tasty food like lasagna or casseroles that are easy to keep in the freezer and just pop into the microwave when hunger strikes. We promise, the parents will thank you!

A Cozy Getaway

It’s always nice to give the expectant parents something that is just for them. A cozy idea could be to give them a day at the spa or a night at a hotel where they can spend time together before the arrival of their little one.


Help and Favors

Baby gear in all its glory, but the most precious gift you can give someone is your time. Hands-on help and favors from friends and family are gifts that will be highly appreciated, both for first-time parents and those becoming parents once again.
