Four Great Baby Shower Gift Ideas

Baby shower gift ideas that are sure to please.

Looking for a great baby shower gift? You’re not alone! Thousands of people buy baby shower gifts each year, and each baby shower gift is as adorable as the next. I’m Patti the Perfect Party Planner and I’m going to go over five baby shower gifts that are sure to knock the socks off of the proud parents to be.

Diaper Genie

Yes, you heard me right, a diaper genie. No, it’s not a genie that will magically change and dispose of diapers, but it’s the next best thing.

You know how ordinary diaper bins have that pungent smell oozing out of them each time you open it to throw in a new diaper? The Diaper Genie eliminates that problem. Goodbye nasty smell, goodbye messy diaper pail. The diaper genie really is a new parent’s dream come true and it makes an excellent baby shower gift.

Baby Swing

If there’s a baby, there’s a baby swing somewhere nearby -- or at least there should be. Baby swings make a great baby shower gift.

My favorite is the Fisher Price Ocean Wonders Aquarium swing. Not only does it calm baby by gently rocking him or her, it also keeps baby entertained with a sparkling water globe and plush aquarium friends. It’s not the cheapest swing on the market, but it does make for a great baby shower gift that’s sure to be appreciated.

Baby Carrier

When you’re a new parent, getting anything done around the house can seem absolutely impossible. That’s why baby carriers are so important. Mom and dad will be able to strap baby to them while they do the dishes, vacuum the rug, and do other household chores.

There are a number of different carriers to choose from so see if mom has a specific carrier registered on the gift registry. That way you’ll know which brand she prefers.

Bottle Warmer

Microwaves aren’t safe when it comes to giving baby a bottle, but that doesn’t mean all hope is lost for parents at two in the morning. A bedside bottle warmer can really save the day. Most super stores like Target and Wal-Mart carry them in the baby section of their stores.


An exersaucer is another great baby shower gift that mom will appreciate as much as baby will. Akin to a walker without wheels, an exersaucer is a play land for little tots. Mom might not be able to use to exersaucer until baby is a little older, but when baby is old enough to use it, mom will be able to get some much needed free time.

Regardless of which baby shower gift you choose, if it’s a gift chosen from the heart, it will be the most perfect gift of all.
