Best Baby Shower Gift Ideas

Finding the perfect baby shower gift isn’t tough because there are a lack of options to purchase, it is tough because there is such a plethora of items that it can be hard to decide on just one. This list represents our top 10 can’t live without baby products. Each of these gifts get outstanding ratings and reviews on all major shopping sites.

Wubbanub Pacifier

Losing, dropping and forgetting pacifiers can be a big problem for parents. I cannot even count the number of times I had to reinsert a standard soother for my son during his 0-7 month stage. Enter the Wubbanub. It is basically a cute plush animal that is permanently attached to one of the best pacifiers on the market. While the vast majority of parents on Amazon rate it a 5/5, a few admit it can be tricky to clean. I just follow the manufacturers instructions to throw it in the washing machine and haven’t had any issues thus far.

Under the Nile Organic Baby Gown

Changing a squirmy new born in the middle of the night can be tricky business, especially for new parents. I got sick of unfastening and fastening 30 tiny buttons in the middle of the night and looked for a better solution. With these baby gowns, you simply hike them up, change the diaper, hike them down, and you’re done.

BabyBjorn Babbysitter Balance Air

A bouncer provides a safe place to set baby down while mom does any number of tasks requiring two hands. There are a number of options to choose in this category and this one is the hands-down winner. It folds flat for storage and transport, does not require batteries, and looks fantastic in any decor.

Hanna Anderson Night Night Baby Sleeper Pajamas

These are among the highest rated sleepers because of their ultra soft and high quality fabric. Its zipper also makes them very fast and easy to get in and out of.

Lamaze Chime Garden

If I could only have one baby toy for my kids, this would be it. The combination of lights, sounds and textures entertains babies of all ages for hours. It requires no fine motor skills to operate (simply pull on it or tap it) and the Chime Garden’s sounds are actually pleasing. I even catch adults playing with this toy when they visit!

Tiny Love Super Deluxe Lights and Music Gymini Activity Gym

Activity play mats like this one keep baby occupied on the floor while protecting carpets from spit-up. When finished with it, the play mat is easily collapsed for storage. Parents nearly unanimously rate this play mat as one of the best available.

Sofie the Giraffe

This classic teething toy has just the right texture and rubbery material that babies love. I was a little concerned that some spots were coming off after two years and two kids, but found out that it was food safe paint. On Amazon, over 1500 parents have given it a 5/5 rating.

Robeez shoes

For months, I fought with getting my baby’s shoes on whenever we left the house only to have them fall off and get lost later that day. Robeez shoes solved all of these problems. They have super cute styles, are made of soft leather, are easy to get on and, most importantly, stay on baby’s feet.

Burt’s Bees Baby Bee Gift Basket

When choosing baby care products for my children, I look for the least amount of harmful chemicals. Baby Bee products are 98.9% natural and do not contain any stinky perfumes. Their bubble bath, shampoo and diaper rash cream are staples in my house.

Phil & Ted’s Lobster High Chair

Taking a baby to restaurants and other people’s houses can be a bit of a hassle. This compact high chair is easy to pack along wherever you go. It attaches very quickly and includes a tray to contain food mess.
