Unique Baby Shower Gifts

Is it just me, or are there babies everywhere right now? We will welcome five new babies into our family this year alone! As a mom of three and someone in the baby business, there’s a lot of pressure on me to have the best and most unique baby shower gift at the party! I’ve never been one to give the super practical stuff. I mean, let’s be honest, how fun is it really to open a bathtub or breast pump?

One of my favorite gifts that I received at my shower was not on my registry. I know, gasp right? But trust me, it got all the oohs and aahs. In honor of creative (and non-registered) gifts everywhere, I’m putting together some of my favorite go-to gifts—creative, functional and, most importantly, memorable.

I love to give personalized gifts—a bib, a blanket, a burp cloth—these are all items that you will have a million of, but you always reach for the personalized ones for those “public appearances,” and it’s always the personalized gifts you hold on to the longest. I love these monogram chevron bibs.

If you don’t have time to order something monogrammed, there’s different ways to add that personalized touch. Every mom will tell you, you can’t have enough washcloths, especially the thin ones that can be used for almost any type of baby mess. How cute is this baby pea pod washcloth set? It’s so easy to make and practical, and if you’re hosting the shower, how perfect would these be as décor too!

I can’t get over how cute these onesie cupcakes are! You just have to find your favorite onesies, and roll away. Label the box with “Baby’s Bakery” or something else super sweet—no pun intended!—and you’re all set.

Everyone has seen the traditional diaper cake, right? How about diaper babies? All you need are some diapers, washcloths, googly eyes and time (how awesome would it be if you could buy time!). I’m pretty sure these little guys would be the hit of any shower.

I’ve saved the best for last. This is a simple gift but one that mom will treasure for years to come, especially when she’s trying to dig out the shot records the day before school starts. This is a guaranteed crowd-pleaser that any parent can relate to. I’d like to personally thank the friend who gifted me mine. It’s given me eight years of sanity knowing all of my info is together for all the kiddos. Meet the baby file folder—brilliant, just brilliant.

It’s just your basic accordion folder from an office supply store. You can add colorful folders, pretty tabs and maybe include a cute envelope for hospital bands, first tooth, etc. I found this great DIY post on making your own baby organizer, and she lists a bunch of useful folder titles. Go ahead, you know you want to make one for yourself too!

Do you buy off the registry or do you like to find that extra-special gift?
