Practical Baby Shower Gifts Every Mom Will Love!

I’ve learned from being a mother myself that some of the most unexpected gifts are by far the best gifts you could receive during your baby shower. Of course, we love all of the cute clothes, soft blankets and rattles but most people (and new moms) never think of the items you’ll truly need until the time comes to use them.

I’ve put together a list of some of my favorite baby items to give (and receive) at a baby shower.

Infants Tylenol/Motrin. You can never have too much medicine for your little one. Nobody ever wants to walk through the baby isles and buy medicine as a gift… but DO IT. It will be put into great use. Trust me. You can never go wrong with this gift and to be honest, a lot of new mothers don’t think about buying medication beforehand. You never think you need it until you wake up in the middle of the night with a sick child.

Thermometer. With my first child, I didn’t even think to buy a thermometer for young children until the time came where I was asked “did he have a temperature at all today”. I felt way too embarrassed to answer with “I didn’t have one to take his temperature with”, so I completed fibbed and told them he “was just a little warm”. I will never go without one anymore.

Mommy & Me Teething Products. I think teething products that children can chew on and mommy can wear are a phenomenal idea. It makes baby happy and keeps mommy looking fashionable. I love the necklaces, but recently came across the Nuby Teething Trends Beaded Bracelet’s and thought they were a great piece. Since it’s wearable, you’ll never be without it. They have a soft textured surface for teething and comfortability while wearing. It’s BPA free and comes in mint, maroon, black, and gray. It’s the perfect size for dressing up an outfit while not looking too gaudy. Find something like it here!

Children’s Q-Tips. Sounds crazy, but it’s smart! One box of these as a gift can last for months. Maybe it’s just me, but I have a weird pet peeve about my children having dirty ears. These were a perfect and not a ‘typical’ gift for myself, so I now continue to buy them for every other mama who’s shower I attend because it’s rare they’d get a second box.

Something for Mom. Yes, baby showers are all about the baby but us mothers would love something a little special for us after the baby arrives (of before). Maybe a few bath bombs, a cute pajama outfit, some comfortable slippers to wear at the hospital. No matter what it is, it will be greatly appreciated! Something new for us might make pushing a baby out sound a little better.

What are some of the best baby shower gifts you received? I’d love to hear!

March of Dimes: March For Babies Walk

Right now, babies need all the support and help they can get.

Premature birth affects about 380,000 babies here in the United States. I’m walking in March for Babies to get the message out about this unfortunate problem and you can help tremendously!

A baby's feet.
 For anyone who is a mother, we know it’s tough. For all of us, so why not help out other mothers out there who are in need.

I have teamed up with a group through Wellspan Health Urgent Care to help raise money for our sweet little loved ones. I’m writing to have you join me to help raise money to expand programs and educate medical professionals to make sure that moms and babies get the best possible care.

Together we can help the March of Dimes fight prematurity so more babies can get the strongest start possible. Anything helps. We greatly appreciate all the wonderful help!

Find my personal link here to help me raise money for a wonderful cause. All of us mothers need to stick together and help out each other as much as possible! My goal is to raise $500 before we walk on May 6th.

Anything would greatly be appreciated by all mothers and babies who are in need of our generosity and kindness.

If you live near the York, Pennsylvania area and would like to walk, please sign up and let me know. We’d love to have you join along!

Thank you so much.
