What a delight! A sweet little baby is on the way, and you are invited to the baby shower.  Perhaps the baby has already arrived, and you would like to send along congratulatory blessings. With a world of opportunity at the baby’s feet, there are a number of gift options, in place, for you to celebrate them, and their joyous parents, on this exciting new journey.

Books, Books, Books Galore

Some pediatricians believe that a baby can recognize his or her parent’s voice, while still in the womb. Armed with this knowledge, reading to baby, at all stages of their development, including while in utero, is a sound step toward encouraging a healthy, developing, brand new brain.

  • Can’t Wait to Show You: A Celebration for Mother’s-to-Be by Jacqueline Boyle – is a sweet book intended for the mother to read while pregnant. It is even shaped with curves, to accommodate her growing belly, as she reads.
  • Welcome Little One by Sandra Magsamen – isn’t just a book; it’s also a keepsake. There is room to insert various details about the baby, when she or he is born, including the baby’s weight, hair color, eye color, length, time of birth, the date, and location.
  • Goodnight Moon by Margaret Wise Brown – is a beloved classic, and perfect for a baby’s nighttime ritual.
  • Chica Chica Boom Boom by Bill Martin and John Archambault – is a fun way for baby to start learning its ABC’s. Filled with friendly cooperation, and rhythmic poetry, it will be one of baby’s instant favorites.

Baby Shower Gift Baskets

New moms get extremely excited when they see a basket filled with various goodies, intended for both the newborn, and themselves. These baskets are perfect for the baby shower, or sending love from afar, after the baby has arrived.

Personalized Gifts

Nothing says, “Welcome Baby,” more than baby’s own personalized items.

  • Personalized Baby Blanket – You can think big with all of baby’s stats filling the entirety of the blanket, such as First, Middle, and Last Name, Birth Weight in Pounds and Ounces, Birth Date, Birth Time, Birth Length, and of course, a newborn photo. Or, you may opt for personalization on a more discreet scale; a solid-colored blanket with baby’s name embroidered in a corner.
  • Constellation Growth Chart – Now new-born’s can really reach for the stars. Simply by using a fine tip permanent marker, the child’s growth can easily be recorded up to 5’2” tall.
  • Baby Book – When a year or two goes by, parents will remark about how quickly the time went. When in reality, the first couple of years of raising a baby are among the toughest, until they start to drive, of course. Help the new parents remember it all, with a baby book that commemorates every new milestone.
  • Personalized Snow Globe – Celebrate baby’s birth with a charming musical, and light up, snow globe. Bound to be an instant favorite, and family heirloom, the snow globe serves as both a gentle nightlight, and a sweet little musical tune, to soothe baby into dreamland, nightly.

Precious is definitely the name of the game when searching for baby gifts. Cute, age-appropriate gifts will always be welcomed and appreciated.  Do not forget the new mom and dad! A basket of sweet chocolate treats, or the gift of babysitting, will help them ease, even more seamlessly, into this magical time.
