I’m gearing up to co-host a baby shower for my sister-in-law in just a few short weeks, and it got my on the hunt for the best baby shower gifts out there right now. First, let me start by saying if a mom has a registry, shop it! These are things she obviously really wants and feels she will use. It’s going to be hard for you to know her individual tastes and needs. With that being said, if you’re shopping for a mom who doesn’t have a registry, or you’d like to get her additional items that aren’t on her registry, or maybe you’re a mom yourself looking for which items to add to your registry, today I’m excited to tell you about some of the hottest baby shower gifts for 2017! I’ve included gift ideas at a variety of price points for you too!
This gift is perfect if you’re in a grab-and-go situation. I love it because you’re getting so many products wrapped up in one adorable canvas box that doubles as a toy box. The packaging is so nice, you can just pop a bow on the outside and you’re done! You can find it exclusively at BabiesRUs. Inside it includes:
- Ultra Absorbent Diapers: designed with a premium fit and a core that’s made with sustainable materials.
- Hand, Face & Baby Wipes: super soft, always moist and gentle enough for baby’s work in progress skin
- Diaper Rash Cream: made with plant-based ingredients like Zinc Oxide, Aloe and Babyganics’ NeoNourish Natural Seed Oil Blend
- Alcohol-free Foaming Hand Sanitizer: perfect for keeping germs at bay before & after changings
- $40 worth of coupons
Let me tell you, you can NEVER go wrong with aden and anais products. These are hot, hot, hot and I’ve never met a mom who didn’t love their stuff! While you might know them for their adorable swaddles, they have so much more now! My sister in law is having a baby boy, so I made a sweet little gift basket for her with a few of my favorite aden + anais items, including a 3 pack of their organic swaddles, an organic musy mate lovey, and an organic dream blanket, all in the adorable “into the woods” pattern.
I first saw these unique beds at the ABC Expo and fell in love with them immediately! What a cozy space for babies and toddlers to sleep! They are especially helpful if mom plans to cosleep.
This is consistently one of the top sellers in the baby category at Amazon. No joke! This toothbrush is very popular among moms and is sure to be a hit at the baby shower too!
These adorable moccasins are ALL the rage! And while I have to agree that they are absolutely adorable, the price tag is a little hard to swallow. They range in price from $30-$60. $60 for a pair of shoes baby won’t even walk in — I just can’t do it. While they aren’t going to be the name brand, you can find moccasins that will give baby the same LOOK for fractions of the cost on Amazon. I’m talking a pair for $4!
When I think of Skip Hop, I think of the modern, trendy parent. The Skip Hop Silver Lining Cloud Activity Gym is just absolutely adorable and perfect for both girls and boys. The colors aren’t going to clash with your decor and the oversize mat can continue to be used even after baby starts moving.
Skip Hop also makes some of the cutest hooded bath towels. Their Zoo Collection features 5 adorable animals to choose from: dog, monkey, owl, ladybug, and a bee! I love that these towels are bigger than other baby towels, so your child can continue to use them well into toddler and preschool ages. The towels also come with a matching bath mitt!
Are you looking for an item that the mom-to-be might not have asked for because she’s never heard off it, but it’s sure to be a lifesaver to her? If baby will be doing any kind of traveling, I’d highly recommend the ciao! Baby Portable High Chair seat! We have used this for camping, family get-togethers, even picnics in the backyard. If it gets messy, you can just hose it off and let it air dry!
Bandana bibs are HOT right now! They are SO adorable too. You can find a huge selection at Amazon. I’ve seen 4 packs for under $10, like this cute set!
