Best Baby Shower Gifts

Today I am sharing all of my best ideas for baby shower gifts – from gift baskets to books, cute accessories and the majorly practical must-have items, I am sure you will love these ideas!

Natural Avocado Dyed Muslin Swaddle for a Baby Shower Gift


  • The Rock n’ Play Sleeper is a MUST. It’s one of the things that I (along with countless others) feel passionate about. Give a mama one of these, and she will be thanking you for years to come!
  • Gold baby moccasins are my favorite baby accessories of all time! They match everything, and the soft soles are great for babies learning to walk. So yes, I’m calling these ‘essential.’ Pro tip – get them in 6-12 month size so they can learn to crawl and walk in them!
  • Swaddles are a MUST and these natural dyed muslin swaddles are my favorite. They are big and beautiful and hand-dyed with things like indigo & avocado. No one else will give a gift this good!
  • Love this Zarbees Naturals newborn essentials set. It’s best to have that stuff on hand before you need it!
  • I am a noise machine advocate. My babies have always slept better with one, and what better gift than the gift of more SLEEP!? This Wave Baby noise machine is both functional and good looking and fits easily on a shelf. Score!
  • This Love to Dream zip-up swaddle is amazing for when baby starts to break out of traditional swaddles!
  • Burt’s Bees pajamas are SO SOFT and the patterns are cute, modern and minimal. You will wish you had a pair of these for yourself!
