3. Five Baby Shower Gift Ideas


There is no shortage of options for baby shower gifts out there. Rattles, pacifiers, baby toys, baby clothes, etc. are just a few things that come to mind. The only piece of advice we have for you is to remember to pick something practical that the mommy-to-be can use to make caring for her new baby a little easier. Here are our recommendations:



  • Breast pump



Breast pumps come in very handy when a tired mom needs a break.



  • Baby gym

A baby plays a mat or baby gym is something that can keep an infant-occupied long enough for mom to have a meal, use the toilet, or have a quick shower.



  • Baby essentials set


Every mom needs a baby essentials kit. It should contain everything from diapers, wipes, baby lotion, a change of clothes, burping napkins, and anything else you can think of. It will save mom the trouble of having to put one together herself.



  • Hospital survival kit



After the baby is born, depending on how much longer mom will stay at the hospital, a hospital survival kit is a great idea. Think of what you would put in a care package for mom. A book to read, some chocolate bars to munch on, or anything that can help mom relax at the hospital even if it is just for a few minutes.



  • DIY burp rags




These are essential baby essentials. And the fact that you made it yourself with make the mommy-to-be appreciate them even more.


4. Four Baby Shower Game Ideas


You can always plan one of the prominent games like “guess mommy’s waist size” or “don’t say baby” because these are still a hit. But if you want to take it up a notch, here are some fun ideas:



  • The Nipple Toss


Pair off. Each team gets five nipples. One teammate tosses one nipple at a time to the other who has to catch it on a chopstick—first time to get all five wins.


  • Tinkle In The Pot


Everyone gets a balloon to put under their shirts. Each player holds a ping pong ball between their knees and has to walk across and drop it into a jar.


  • Blind Diaper Change


Everyone is blindfolded and has to change the diaper on a baby doll. The fastest (and neatest) change wins.


  • Spell with Sprinkles


Pair off. Each team gets a jar of sprinkles. The first team to spell “boy” or “girl” with their sprinkles wins.

Baby showers are a fun celebration of a new life that is about to begin. Make sure the mommy-to-be has a blast because very soon she will be elbow deep in all things baby!
