Best Gifts for Your Next Baby Shower

We have all been in the position where we have to buy a gift for a special occasion but don’t know where to start. Buying for a baby shower is no different, especially if you haven’t had kids of your own. Everyone wants to buy something cute but it’s also important to think of practical gifts. It’s fine to go ahead and purchase that adorable onesie you saw, but maybe pair the gift with something more functional that will be used over time. The problem with clothing is that babies grow so fast, new mothers often find themselves with more outfits than they can dress their newborn in before the baby grows out of them. If you are struggling with what the buy for an expecting mother, check out the ideas below.

The Baby Shusher

This new product could be a lifesaver for a new mom with a fussy baby who will not go to sleep. The product is a cylinder-shaped speaker with settings for 15 minutes or 30 minutes. The speaker emits a rhythmic “shush” sound that is said to help comfort and soothe babies to sleep.

Convertible Stroller to Car Seat

If I had kids I can imagine this gift would seem like the most convenient and practical thing I could receive. Having to strap your baby into a seat for driving, and then remove them just to strap them into another seat for strolling seems silly. Whoever invented the stroller with a seat that detaches and turns into a car seat might have been a genius. There are plenty of brands to choose from, visit Buy Buy Baby to see the best options. If you really want to impress your friend, opt for a model that grows with the baby. These are the strollers that not only have detachable car seat, but that have a car seat that can be adjusted as the baby grows into a toddler.

Blooming Bather

This may be one of the cutest inventions I have seen in a long time. Bath time can often be a struggle, and though there are many tips out there to help make it easier, having a blooming bather may help. The Blooming Bather is a flower shaped cushion that fits easily into any sink and cradles the baby in a soft flower during bath time. The material is easy to clean and fast to dry. After your baby enjoys their bright and comfortable bath time, simply ring out the excess water before putting the Blooming Bather in the dryer for 10-15 minutes, or hanging dry.

Gyroscopic Bowl

If you have ever watched a baby eat, you know that things can get messy fast. You may not be able to prevent all the messes, but with a gyroscopic bowl, you can at least minimize spills from clumsy uncoordinated babies still getting a hang of their motor skills. The bowl is surrounded by an outer shell that uses gravity-defying technology to keep the bowl portion face up in the center no matter what way the outer shell is being held. This sounds like a gift that is not only practical but entertaining too. To make it even better, the bowl comes with a lid for those times to you to travel with your baby’s snacks.
