Useful Baby Shower Gift Ideas

Baby shower ideas that are useful

Give a baby shower gift that is useful!

I have only had one baby shower but I have been to many. I always see the same gifts over and over. A ton of newborn sized clothes and a package or two of diapers. Ever since my own baby shower and receiving those very things, plus 9 bottles of baby oil, I vowed to never give those items.

I always bring a useful item, something that I would consider a necessity, to the baby shower. Then when baby makes their arrival and I go visit at the hospital, I deliver diapers then, based on what size they didn’t get a plethora of at the baby shower.


Here are some of my favorite baby shower gift ideas. Plus, be sure to check out our favorite baby items <—– the items we couldn’t live without!
