77 Baby Shower Gift Ideas
Do you have a baby shower coming up? You know you need to get a gift, but what exactly? It can’t just be any old thing, you want to stand out and really show how much you care. Well don’t worry!! We’ve pulled together 77 baby shower gift ideas that will make you a hit at the next baby shower!
Everybody’s gift giving style is a little bit different. Some like to provide practical gifts and some like to make things fun and silly. Some like to give experiences and some like to give tangible items. Whatever the case, we’ve got you covered. Our list is categorised to help you find something that gels with your personal style, so they’ll know the gift is from you before they even read the card! We’ve focused on four main categories:
- Pragmatic and Practical
- Fun and Games
- For the Parents
- Mementos and Memories
This will help you to quickly navigate to the type of gift that reflects you and the gift you’d like to give. However, there is always an opportunity to do something big, something grandiose! If the parents and their little one are very special to you, maybe you’d like to splash out and get something truly exceptional, or perhaps it makes sense to pool your money with other friends and family members so you can afford something that will really wow them! We’ve thrown in a couple of big-ticket ideas just in case this is what you’re looking for.
