This gift will create many memories.

3. Baby Booties

When buying a baby shower gift, you can never go wrong with cute baby clothes just like these booties. These baby booties are super cute, cozy and practical for the new baby. You can buy booties in all different colors and styles. Stick to neutral colors like these if you don’t know the baby’s gender or if that is more the parent’s style. However, you can get vibrant colors like pink, blue and more.

Next, we have another gift basket idea but this one is full of essentials for the new baby. This one includes diapers for newborn babies, disposable bags, cream for rashes, a changing mat for traveling and five cute bibs. You can buy gift baskets like these or put one together yourself.

6. Teething Jewelry

An essential for any mom-to-be is teething jewelry. Teething starts at different times depending on the baby but one thing is for sure, once it starts, you need to be prepared! With teething jewelry, mom just puts the necklace or bracelet on and the baby can chew while being held and hugged. So mom gets a cute accessory and the baby has a toy to play with, as well as an aid for teething. There are so many different styles out there to suit every mom.

7. Scan Picture Art

Looking for a unique gift? Then this next idea is for you. Here we have wooden art that features the baby scan. This is such an amazing gift idea because it is unusual and the parents can have a decoration of the scan to keep as a special memory. Any parents-to-be will love this!

10. Baby Shower Bouquet
