Fun Baby Shower Gift Ideas!

I wanted to come up with a list of fun, different baby shower gifts that can be purchased on any budget.  I’m due in just 8 short weeks, I’m so anxious, nervous but mostly excited to meet my baby boy!  I’ve been buying everything from the essentials, cute outfits to nursery items that feed my decor obsession. Here’s my list of the cutest little newborn/baby items I could find, I hope you enjoy reading this as much as I did finding them! 🙂

Cloud B Sunshine Owl
– I used the Sleep Sheep the first time around with baby #1, this time I chose the Sunshine Owl. It plays four different soothing sounds and has two sleep-timer options. This is a life-saver when putting the baby to bed. Calming, tranquil sleep for baby = more sleep for mom & dad! 🙂 http://www.cloudb.com

Nature Baby Organic Cotton Hooded Bath Towel
– Everyone uses hooded bath towels for infants, I used them until my son was almost 1. This one is a neutral color so it will fit with any bathroom decor (for people who are decor obsessed/OCD like me!) It’s soft, ORGANIC and perfect for sensitive baby skin. http://www.naturebaby.com

Halo SleepSack Swaddle
– This is one of my favorite inventions ever, and it was actually started by parents who unfortunately lost their baby to SIDS. By using the SleepSack you’re keeping your baby warm & cozy all while eliminating the need for extra blankets which can be dangerous. I am one of those crazy moms who worries constantly, using this will allow me to relax a little, knowing that my baby is snug & safe while sleeping. http://www.halosleep.com

Elks & Angels Little Cuddle Bear
– The cutest little teddy bear ever! Made of 100% Australian Sheepskin, this little bear will naturally resist bacteria, dirt & odor. Which is very important, especially when you’re a mom of little boys. 😉 Super soft, hypoallergenic, would make a great addition to any gift basket. Oh and it made Oprah’s list of holiday gifts for kids, which alone speaks for itself! http://www.elksandangels.com

Maud N Lil Organic Cotton Rattle
– Baby’s first toy, a rattle! Simple, but will keep your curious baby busy for a while. This one is made of organic cotton and machine washable which is always a plus. I love all of their soft toys & rattles and they also make a great addition to any baby gift basket! They can be purchased through their U.S. distributor at, http://www.bunnyberry.com

Petit Pehr Grey Stripe Swaddle
– I used a swaddle for my first baby ALL day, every day. No matter what he was laying on a swaddle was underneath him! They kept him warm & protected our furniture & baby gear. I love the patterns offered by Petit Pehr, they match any contemporary nursery/decor. Their made of 100% muslin and will get a ton of use & last you a while.  http://www.petitpehr.com

Bitybean Baby Carrier
– I regretted not getting a baby carrier before, so I did a ton of research this time around. I narrowed it down to Bitybean because it was the smallest, most compact carrier I could find making this easy to bring along anywhere we go. Between a 3-year-old & a baby , I need any extra “hands” I can get. I’ve seen mom & dads all over wearing these and know it will make life much easier and allow me to accomplish more while still keeping my baby close. http://www.bitybean.com

BundleBee Baby Wrap
– This is the same concept of other swaddling sacks, but much with more support. It has a built-in cushion to support babies head & neck, the cushion is made from all natural, biodegradable coconut fiber known for its natural easy breathability. Tons of 5-star reviews on Amazon, beautiful packaging, GREAT, practical gift! http://www.mybundlebee.com

Babiators Sunglasses
– These are the cutest, fun little gift that will look adorable on even the littlest of recipients. I got a pair for the baby and my son, they will match, look cute and their eyes will be protected in style! A bunch of different colors making this perfect for girls or boys. I thought these were really different, definitely a fun, surprise gift! http://www.babiators.com

unnamed-9

Little Citizens Navy, Grey & Black Stripe Sleeper
– My biggest complaint when buying baby boy clothes are that the options are limited and the styles are so boring. Thankfully, with the help of the internet I’ve found a bunch of online boutiques that offer adorable, DIFFERENT baby clothes. One of my favorites is Little Citizens. Along with their organic cotton sleepers, they offer matching beanies, scarves & blankets. All so adorable! http://www.littlecitizens.com

unnamed-11

Baby Pibu Travel Essentials Set
– Bathtime wash, baby butter, bottom balm & hydrating ointment. Created by a board certified dermatologist, all products offered are gentle & high quality. I love this set because it includes a few essentials and not a bunch of products that will never get any use. Its portable size makes it great for on-the-go lifestyles and fits great in your diaper bag. http://www.babypibu.com

unnamed-12

Timi & Leslie Marie Antoinette Diaper Bag
– First of all, I am obsessed with this bag! It is one of the best, lightest, stylish designer diaper bags on the market. After getting all of this baby stuff I had to treat myself! When my son was a baby, I basically stopped using my purse & resorted to adding a small wristlet that fit easily in my diaper bag. This bag offers that AND more. A few of its convenient features are a detachable cross body strap, changing pad, matching clutch, a zippered sac for dirty clothes, an insulated bottle tote, stroller straps, key fob & a few organizational pockets. I am going to expand on this one more when I post about what is in my hospital bag & what is in baby’s bag. http://www.timiandleslie.com

Woolino Natural Australian Lambskin Cuddle Rug
– As soon as I saw this I knew I had to have it! A great addition to any nursery. The natural softness of this will soothe and comfort baby. The soft wool will help regulate baby’s body temperature keeping them warm when it’s cold, and cool when it’s hot, of course all while staying dry, comfortable & happy. This is the perfect alternative to those busy play mats and looks amazing with any decor. In love! http://www.woolino.com

The Coral Pear Moccasins
– Totally unnecessary for a newborn but possibly the cutest little baby shoes ever! I couldn’t resist. It’s possible my baby will be better dressed than I am. 😉 I love the selection from the Coral Pear, they have classic moccasins, moccasins with bows, mary janes, you will want to buy them all. http://www.thecoralpear.com
