How to Give the Perfect Baby Shower Gift

How to Give the Perfect Baby Shower Gift

You're feeling lost picking the perfect baby shower gift, but you're not a "gift card giver." Don't worry - we're here to help. Here are 5 tips on how to give the best baby shower gift!

1. Customize for the Mama

Don't just get her a general gift - pick out something that fits her situation and personality perfectly. If they know the gender of their baby, it's a great opportunity to pick boy or girl options! Get gifts that compliment her aesthetic and their nursery decor, so nothing clashes.

The best way to perfectly customize your gift is to use our Build Your Own Gift Set feature! You'll save 15% when you bundle, and you can pick between boy, girl, and neutral options. It's a great way to save money and get a meaningful gift she'll love. Try out our new BYO feature here!

2. Get Gifts for Baby AND Mom

A lot of baby shower gifts are intended for baby - but mom shouldn't be overlooked! It goes a long way to pair her swaddles or bibs with a face mask, bath bomb, or Starbucks gift card.

Try to keep her gift balanced 50/50. If you customize a gift set, add a few goodies for mom into the caddy - like lip gloss, healthy snacks, or jewelry. Adding personal touches rounds out the gift perfectly!

3. Stick to Her Registry as Best You Can

If you're stumped on what to get the new mom, the best thing you can do is stick with her registry! She put a lot of time, effort, and research into that registry, and nothing is more discouraging than pouring your soul into a list of gifts nobody buys.

It's of course okay to add personal touches or expand on a registry gift. But a good rule of thumb is to get at least one gift from her registry.

4. Gift From Experience

As you build your baby shower gift, think of the products you wish you had as a new mom. What did you wish you added to your registry? What did you get but never ended up using?

This is a great question to ask if you plan on tucking a gift card in your gift, too! What brands or stores did you frequent the most as a new mom? She'll probably frequent them, too.

5. Let Her Know You're Here for Support

Supporting and celebrating a new mom goes far beyond gift giving. Especially for first time moms, it's important to support them after baby comes, too! At the baby shower, make sure to pair your gift with a sweet card letting her know you will always be there for support. Whether it's a word of encouragement or time to babysit for them, they will appreciate it!

When baby arrives, follow up. Send them a meal or a DoorDash gift card. Text her to let he know if she needs anything, you're there. Offer to babysit once their baby is old enough so they can have a nice date night.
