Unique Baby Shower Gifts
If you want to do something special for the mama-to-be, consider some of these more unique baby shower gifts. These ideas will definitely get plenty of attention at any baby shower:
Baby shower gifts that are fun and practical are total wins. Stack diapers—either cloth or disposable work—in three tiers, then wrap with a bow to create a diaper “cake” to celebrate baby’s impending arrival.
Whether a knit blanket, a hand-sewed outfit, or a painting for the nursery, nothing thing says “you’re loved” like DIY baby shower gifts. If you’re not particularly crafty, but love the idea of personalized baby shower gifts, consider a personalized story book or a monogrammed baby shower gift.
Something special for mom
Other unique baby shower gifts include special treats for mom and only mom—think the promise of homemade meals once baby is born, spa gift cards for pampering pre- or post-baby, or jewelry personalized with baby’s name or birth stone.

Is It OK to Buy Baby Shower Gifts That Aren’t on the Registry?
If mama has a baby registry, you might be wondering what to do if the baby shower gifts above don’t exactly line up with the items on that list. It’s a valid question, but not all great baby shower gifts comes from the registry.
Sometimes the registry is depleted before you have a chance to do your shopping; sometimes the baby shower gifts on the registry don’t match your budget; and sometimes the registry doesn’t include baby shower gifts you know mama might really need! In any of these situations, it’s perfectly acceptable to stray from the baby registry and choose more unique baby shower gifts.
Another Kind of Baby Shower Gift: The Regift
Huh?! Hear me out: We all buy so much stuff for our babies, but in most cases, our friends and family members already own a lot of the same items. Instead of buy something brand new, consider giving the mom-to-be all of your favorite baby items you no longer need. Some of the more expensive items, like rockers or even cribs, make wonderful gifts. Just stay away from any heavily used items that aren’t in good condition—think tired cloth diapers, and stained clothing. Also refrain from regifting anything unhygienic, like a used NoseFrida (gross!).
