My Top Picks for Baby Shower Gifts + GIVEAWAY!

It seems like everyone is having babies right now! Something must be in the water because everywhere I look someone is newly pregnant, ready to pop at any moment, or holding a teeny, tiny newborn in their arms.

I have a few go to gifts that I like to purchase for any baby shower I go to. These are all items that I have been given that have become a staple in our everyday life and some are items that I have purchased and so glad I did so I figure I would spread the love to all of my readers.

Here are my favourite gifts to give:

Baby 411

Anything you need to know in the first year will be in this book! There are a lot of baby books out there but I have found this to be the best. It offers so much information but the way it is organized is not to overwhelming that you are scared to open up the cover.

Cuddle Time “Lovey”

I had never heard of these until I received one at Isla’s baby shower and it is probably one of her most beloved items. She sleeps with it and cuddles it and gives it hugs. It is so popular that we have bought one for the sitters and to have one at my parents place. It’s her secerity blanket for sure.

Swaddle Blankets

These are a must for a new mommy and her babe. The 100% cotton muslin are so soft and can be used as a blanket, nursing cover and even to swaddle your baby.  Not to mention the material is so light that it can be used during the hottest days of summer.

Cupcake Onesies

Every baby needs onesies and why not get them in this beautiful package that looks like cupcakes. You get 4, six months onesies (boy, girl or neutral) as well as 2 pairs of socks. Baby will love them and mommy will love the cute packaging. You can purchase these in my shop soon!

Now all you need is a gift bag and tissue paper and you have some wonderful gifts that baby and mommy to be will actually make use of.

NOW for the super exciting part! To celebrate mommies everywhere and the fact that I am coming up on my 1 year Blogaversary; I will be giving away all the gifts you see here (excluding the gift bag and tissue paper) to one lucky person. All you have to do it enter below!

    It's really nice to give "something soft" for a mom-to-be. These things are really useful and a must have for baby. One of the cutest gifts that I have seen is the cupcakes onesies. Thanks for this idea!

    These are cute ideas! My favorite gifts to give are baby thermometer and baby bibs because it's more useful and practical.
