Creative Baby Shower Gift Ideas

When it comes to baby shower, one of the most fun parts is being a guest and being able to pick out a gift for the mother-to-be as well as the baby! For some people finding a gift is easy and simple, for others, it's a task that can be frustrating and long. Some people will find something as soon as they walk into the store, others will just give cash, and some guests will take days to pick a gift. Most guests who plan to attend a baby shower want to find a gift that will be memorable and different from other gifts. Since there is such a large selection of baby items to choose from, many soon-to-be parents will create a baby registry which will list all of the items that they hope to be able to receive. But, if the mother has not created a registry, things are much harder on her guests. Fortunately, there are plenty of creative baby shower gift ideas for you to choose from.

While stores are the best way to purchase gifts, if you really want a unique and creative gift, you should make it on your own, or purchase something and add your own personal touch to it. This way the gift is really given from the heart. Below are a few creative baby shower gift ideas that you should consider. Now is the time to let your creativity and imagination fly!

Baby Quilt/Blanket

If you know how to sew, a baby quilt or blanket may be the perfect gift for you to give at the baby shower. This quilt can be used for years and years to come, so it will surely be put into good use. To make your blanket, go to a craft or fabric store and purchase fabric/material that you think is the most suitable for a baby blanket. Try to find one that is soft and warm. You may also want to pick a certain color or theme. If you know the theme of the baby's room, try to find a material/fabric that matches the theme. You could also use a light blue for a boy, light pink for a girl, and light yellow or green for a mystery baby. If you want to make a quilt, you can buy different types of fabrics and make a quilt out of patches.


Baskets are extremely popular at baby showers, and it's entirely okay if you see a few other baskets being given as gifts. The important thing is what is in the gifts. Most people will probably make a bath time basket, or just a general baby basket. For your gift to stand out, making a sleeping baby basket. You will want to buy things such as a night-light, a CD of lullabies, a soft blanket, lavender baby wash, and maybe even a mobile. All of these things are great ways to help a baby sleep when it is time.
