the best baby shower gift is my fave

May 14, 2015

I’ve added another non-marketable thing to my resume, gift formula creator. My dad would be super proud.

Today’s formula? What to bring to a baby shower:

something cute + something practical + something for the mom

baby shower gift ideas

I painstakingly (read: it was the best hour of my week) browsed the baby section at Target to demonstrate this formula and help those of you who may be gift challenged.

A cute item like this romper, chambray buttondown, or Sophie the Giraffe needs to be included because it’s the most fun to pick out and tiny clothes get big reactions.

New moms are curious about what experienced moms recommend. Include something practical like onesies, your favorite diapers, swaddle blankets (in Orla Kiely patterns!), an aspirator, or baby wash. Not flashy, but essentials they’ll be grateful for.

And lastly, don’t forget the mom and how hard pregnancy can be. Treat her with a stylish diaper bag (Orla for the win!), a magazine, a treat, and the post partum trifecta – Covergirl Trublend Fix Stick, dry shampoo, and some lipstick – so she can feel pretty.

What are your favorite items to gift at a baby shower?

Now through Saturday, Target is having a big baby sale so you’re probably going to want to stock up on essentials and collect your gift cards like a boss. My shopping spree was sponsored by Target but I’ve declared my love for the store enough that you know that my enthusiasm for these products is genuine.
