Finding the Perfect Baby Shower Gift

Now that you’ve read our article on Throwing the Perfect Baby Shower, it's time for the next step: finding the perfect baby shower gift. But with all the adorable baby clothes, new gadgets for parents, and endless amount of toys, how can you make sure your gift will be something that both baby and parents will love? Here are some of our tips for finding that perfect baby shower gift along with a few of our favorite gift ideas. 

Check the Registry: It may sound obvious, but checking the new mom’s registry is key to buying a baby gift. You don’t want to be that person at the baby shower who has given a second diaper bag (in the wrong size and color) when the registry asked for one. It will also give you a better idea about the styles and types of gifts the new family is looking for. One thing we at Bundle like to do is buy one thing from the registry (or a few depending on size, cost, etc.) and also include an extra special gift. 

Go with a Theme: If the new parents have chosen a nursery theme and color, you can use those to coordinate the perfect array of gifts. Just don’t go overboard with any one theme. Elephants are cute, but a gift consisting of onesies, bibs, shirts, pacifiers, and blankets with pictures of elephants all over are a bit much. Instead, try to incorporate colors as well – because a plain blue blanket can be just as cute as a blanket with an elephant on it.

Be Original: Custom baby gifts are the perfect way to make sure your gift really stands out at the next baby shower. Bundle offers custom blankets that can be designed with the new baby’s name and stars, flowers, monkeys, tigers, owls, penguins, elephants, and more. If  you’re feeling extra artistic, why not design your own baby outfit? With the “Imagine This” kit, you can design a romper and hat on your own, give the kit as a gift to the mom to be and let her design for her child, or give the kit to a big brother or a sister and let them design for their new sibling! No matter what you chose, your gift is sure to be one of a kind.

As with all your baby shopping needs, Bundle is here to help! Our concierge service will provide you with gift suggestions based on information you provide, and once you let us know which items you like, we will wrap it, ship it, and all you have to do is take credit for giving such a beautiful gift!Here are a few of our favorite items to give as baby shower gifts:

Little Giraffe Luxe Blanket in a Box: A Bundle best seller and one of our most popular (and luxurious) gifts now boxed and ready to go. Wrap your baby in luxury with this chic, faux fur baby blanket. Exceptionally cozy and chic, the satin border makes it even more ultra-soft and snuggly. It’s perfect for the stroller, tummy time or cuddle time.

Aden + Anais Swaddle Set: This pack of four 100% cotton muslin swaddling wraps comes in four super cute prints. These wraps are the ultimate in breathability and softness. The fabric is light, open weave allows a baby’s body temperature to regulate itself naturally, helping to reduce the risk of overheating. It is gentle on baby’s skin and durable for everyday use. The more you wash, the softer they get. Traditionally used for swaddling, the wraps can also be used as burp cloths, nursing and stroller covers, portable crib sheets, stroller and car seat liners, tummy time blankets, change table covers, and more.

Jellycat Soothers: Available in bunny, owl, or puppy theme, this is a gender neutral and curiously classic alternative that provides the comfort of a mini security blanket and the companionship of a stuffed toy.

Baby memory books: Each handmade cover of these sweet memory books is wrapped in unbleached, natural 100% cotton fabric, and then smothered with an original, hand cut design that is then attached to beautifully painted paper. Elegant Swarovski crystals and a sheer organza ribbon make the cover shimmer and adds a unique contrast to the natural aesthetics of the book. Attention to detail is seen throughout the thirty pages of the book. From “my story begins” to “my first day of school,” and each and every page in between, you will have unlimited personalization of all of baby's first milestones and memories.
