Unique Baby Shower Gifts and Clever Gift Wrapping Ideas

Before I had kids, I was pretty clueless when it came to shopping for a baby shower. I just bought whatever was on the registry and stuffed it in a bag. Now, I have a better idea of what new moms need, and I like to share some of my favorite goodies for mommas and babies. These are just a few products that helped me survive my first time around as a mom, and I will definitely be using these again the second time around. If you have a baby shower to attend, keep these baby shower gifts in mind and check out some of the most creative ways to wrap all of the must have baby items. 

Baby Butz

You never know how new babies will react to creams and other products so it is best to use only natural products especially at first. Baby Butz has 100% natural ingredients, and it is used in many hospitals and neonatal units all over the country. It has no smell, and it blends into baby’s skin nicely leaving them dry and moisturized without any kind of greasy after feel. This is always a great addition to baby shower gift.

The Baby Shusher

It is always good to try out a noise machine to help soothe a new baby. Living inside the womb is actually very noisy listening to the internal workings of the body as well as the sounds of the outside world. This can make it difficult for a new baby to sleep in complete silence. The portable Baby Shusher is a great gift to give for newborns. The soothing, gentle shushing helps lull baby to sleep. It has an adjustable volume and a timer too. Its small size means it is easy to toss in the diaper bag for a trip away from home.

Use this great idea from Casey Baudoin at Sugar Lander. While she went to the trouble of stitching and hand stamping this cloth, you can easily use a receiving blanket to wrap up a box. 

SoapSox

These little animals are great for the tub! The SoapSox have a soap pocket to put a bar of soap inside to wash up baby. The animals are entertaining for little ones and the soft fabric makes them gentle enough to use on infants. It is a nice bath time accessory to add to a baby shower gift, and they come in a variety of animal designs.

Insulated Lunch Bag

When an expectant mom already has other children, I always like to give the sibling a little present. One of these insulated lunch bags always makes a little one happy especially when I fill it with goodies for them. This durable insulated lunchbox has a zipper compartment on the inside to hold napkins and cutlery with plenty of room to keep food chilled. There is also a pocket on the outside and straps to wear it like a backpack. The rubber zipper handles makes it easy for little fingers to open.

Nanobebe

For breastfeeding mamas, Nanobebe has a variety of products to help store breastmilk, and there is even a geometrically designed bottle to preserve the nutritional value of breastmilk while providing the next best experience to breastfeeding. The bottles warm up 2-3 times faster than a standard bottle cutting prep time and preventing overheating. Nanobebe has also designed these lay flat storage bags to freeze breast milk keeping it organized, easy to grab, and prepare. They cool quickly which helps prevent bacterial growth, and they thaw fast and evenly.

Make your own wrapping paper. Reuse brown paper bags and use stamps, little feet or just a pencil eraser to make a pattern on paper. You could even let your kiddos paint pictures on the paper to make customized gift wrapping.
