If you’ve been invited to a baby shower but aren’t sure what kind of gift to get, then consider something that is personalized for the baby. There are personalized baby shower gifts that feature the same details as the theme of the nursery or a favorite hobby that the parents enjoy. You can also get something simple that has the initials of the baby or the baby and the parents. Take a look at the invitation to see if there is any kind of special design that the parents are using, such as teddy bears or a sport. There isn’t a rule that dictates exactly what you have to get for a baby shower gift, so try to use your imagination to get something the parents can use and that the baby will enjoy later.
An idea that can be kept on a shelf or in the crib is a stuffed animal. A name, initials or a few details of the birth can be put on the stuffed animal, such as the birth date and weight. If you want to get something that is a bit more personalized than letters, then consider a recording of the mother’s heartbeat that is placed inside the animal. You can also get soothing noises or lullabies if you don’t have access to the mother’s heartbeat.
Another idea is a set of cards that parents can fill out with the date of when the baby sits up for the first time, takes the first steps or celebrates the first birthday. There are numerous designs to choose from, and you can personalize the cards with the name of the baby and the parents. A piggy bank is also a baby shower gift to consider if you want to get something personalized. Picture albums are an option so that the parents can have a record of all of the special moments in the baby’s life. When you begin looking at personalized gifts, think about what the parents might enjoy and what they could use while tying in details of the baby as much as possible with the item you select.
