The best baby shower gift wrap ideas are not always easy to find. But we’ve done the work for you! Here’s a list of some great ways to wrap up your next baby shower present that will impress any new mother.

Baby shower gifts are a great way to show your appreciation for the mom-to-be. They can be as simple or elaborate as you want them to be, but they should always include something that is useful and personal to her. 

Just keep in mind that the more expensive the item, the less likely it is to get used often enough to justify its cost. So stick to practicality and affordability when choosing gifts for the mother-to-be.

The most important thing about baby showers is making sure she has everything she needs during this exciting time in her life.

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 any 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.

Unique Baby Shower Gift Ideas

This can make it difficult for a new baby to sleep in complete silence. The portable Baby Shusher is a great baby gift to give for newborns.

The soothing, gentle shushing helps lull baby to sleep with white noise. It has an adjustable volume and a timer too.

The Baby Shusher‘s small size means it is easy to toss in the diaper bag for a trip away from home.

For breastfeeding mamas, Nanobebe has a variety of products to help store breastmilk.

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.
