Baby showers are a fun opportunity to shower a new mom with thoughtful gifts. Cute baby onesies and diaper cakes are nice, but we’ve taken baby shower gift giving a step further with some super useful and luxurious gift ideas! No one else will likely have thought of these!
Baby Body Spray
I recently had the chance to try BabySpa’s NEW Lullaby Pampering Cologne. I have a 2-year-old daughter and she’s already fascinated by the concept of body spray and perfume. She regularly wants me to spray her so she can smell pretty. BabySpa cologne is perfect for her because it’s natural, alcohol free, and made especially for children!
BabySpa’s Lullaby Pampering Cologne will pamper your child with moisturizing ingredients that will keep their tender skin silky-smooth. BabySpa’s delicate Fresh Baby scent will leave your little one smelling irresistible and cuddly fresh all day. You can easily spritz baby if they are smelling a little sour.
I love the idea of using a baby cologne to keep my little one smelling fresh. I actually looked for something like this when my daughter was first born to use as a fun luxury product. I didn’t find many brands that created a spray that was intended for babies. BabySpa’s cologne features a fresh baby scent that lasts and moisturizes too! My daughter loves having a scent that’s all her own.
Cushy Teething Wristband
Wristy Buddy is the “ultimate teething wristband” for babies around 3 months old and older. These adorable little teething toys were designed by a teacher and a mother who wanted to create a toy for babies who don’t yet have fine motor skills and the ability to hold onto toys. This toy is easy for young babies to play with and easily chew on as they start to teethe.
Each teether is beautifully colored to stimulate baby’s interest and contains multiple textures for baby to explore. Since this toy is designed to be chewed, it’s made of baby-safe materials which do not contain BPA, phthalates, lead or any other toxic materials. The body of the little animal is soft terry cloth-like fabric which absorbs all that baby slobber, helping keep baby’s face and clothes dry. There is a soft plastic part for your teething baby to chew and each animal also has a crinkly part (like the claws of this crab) that babies love the sound of.
My baby loves his Crab Wristy Buddy because it’s easy for him to manipulate and mouth on even though he hasn’t mastered the ability to grasp and hold onto toys yet. Since it attaches to his wrist he can’t drop it and lose it, which keeps him from getting frustrated and keeps me from chasing toys across the floor.
What I love most about Wristy Buddy is that it is machine washable! A toy that baby is constantly putting in their mouth needs to be easy to clean, and these certainly are. When it needs a good cleaning I just throw it in the wash with baby’s clothes, dry on low and it’s good to go again. Wristy Buddy is a fun and functional toy your own little one will love too!
Baby Subscription Box
Baby Bump Bundle offers adorable gift boxes filled with items that are exclusively handpicked for new moms. We had a chance to review the BabyBundle featuring 3+ items perfect for welcoming a new baby. Our box included a cozy baby blanket, flower photo album, bath bubbles, and bottom balm.
Baby Bump Bundle gift boxes are coordinated to match the stage you’re in. Categories include Mom-to-be, Baby, Nursing, and Fitness. Each box includes a variety of high quality items from popular brands, mixed-and-matched to celebrate each stage of life.
One of the items in my box, Baby Pibu’s Bottom Balm, is the perfect size to fit in a purse and take on the go. Created by a dermatologist mom, this diaper cream protects baby’s bottom from irritation and breakouts with a chemical-free, lightweight, hypoallergenic formula. Baby Pibu Bottom Balm goes on smoothly to create a protective barrier and doesn’t leave a residue.
Bella B Bath Bubbles features thick, generous bubbles with a light, refreshing scent. It’s made with organic ingredients, with a no-tear formula and bubbles up to create a squeaky-clean bath experience. This little bottle lasts for numerous uses and adds fun to any bath time. Our little one always asks for her bubbles at bath time, and it’s great knowing that Bella B Bath Bubbles is not introducing her to unwanted chemicals.
My BabyBundle also included an adorable Aden & Anais muslin blanket. Its large size is super soft and made with cotton muslin. The cute little monkeys are a fun design for baby to look at during tummy time or while snuggling cozily. This blanket was a favorite treat and will receive lots of use from my newborn.
A cute Pearhead “Bragbook” was also included in the BabyBundle box. This photo album holds 24 4″ x 6″ photos and is easy to take on the go. It would be a fun gift for a traveling mommy or daddy to take family or baby photos along on a trip. It also features a small window on the front cover for displaying a small profile photo.
Baby Bump Bundles are a great way to pamper a new mom in your life (or yourself!) Baby Bump Bundle also offers individual products so you can build your own bundle. This fun gift box is an easy way to simplify the crazy world of pregnancy and baby products for gift givers, or mothers-to-be themselves.
Glow in the Dark Pacifiers
Philips AVENT Nighttime Pacifiers promote natural soothing for your baby during sleep and waking hours. We loved the fun glow-in-the dark details and easy-to-use and clean style that also promotes healthy oral development for babies 6-18 months old.
Philips AVENT Nighttime Pacifiers have a flattened teardrop nipple that promotes the natural development of your baby’s palate, teeth and gums. They offer a soothing, symmetrical fit even if the pacifier ends up upside-down in a baby’s mouth.
The nipple mouthpiece features a orthodontic design that is transparent, tasteless and odor-free. The nipple is made from strong, long-lasting, BPA-free silicone that won’t misshapen or become discolored over time. Silicone is also naturally hypoallergenic and resistant to bacteria.
Philips AVENT Nighttime Pacifiers have soft glow-in-the-dark details that are “charged” by holding them up to the light. The glow-in-the-dark element is a fun, eye-catching detail, but not so distracting as to keep a baby from sleeping.
The pacifier loop makes it easy to attach these soothers to a pacifier tether to prevent dropping or losing it. The fun colors are eye-catching and the star design is universal for both girls and boys. It’s also a huge plus that these pacifiers are dishwasher safe for easy cleaning, since pacifiers are so easily dropped. They also don’t have many edges or seams to catch dirt or grime. For babies who love a paci, this is a great style to try!
Naturally Shaped Bottles
Philips AVENT Natural Bottles are designed to make the infant feeding process simple. Featuring cute designs and durable materials, these bottles hold up to 9 ounces of milk or formula and have a curved bottle design for easy holding.
I found the unique shape easy to grasp and comfortable to hold. The top is also slightly top heavy to direct the bottle downward during feeding. A baby could also hold this bottle themselves for self-feeding. Each bottle comes with a snap-on top that keeps the nipple clean and leak proof in between uses.
Philips AVENT Bottles feature an ergonomic shape and a wide bottle neck. They also have an advanced anti-colic nipple with unique comfort petals made from flexible silicone to promote an easy latch. The mouthpiece is naturally breast shaped and requires a similar latch to breastfeeding, making it easy for a baby to combine breast and bottle feeding. Each bottle holds up to 9 ounces of liquid.
Philips AVENT Natural Bottles smoothly come apart so each piece can be individually cleaned. These bottles are dishwasher safe, although I prefer hand washing and drying the bottles on a drying rack. The nipple tightly snaps into the durable bottle ring, which screws onto the bottle. Each piece fits together seamlessly for a leak-proof fit.
Philips AVENT Natural bottles are an excellent bottle choice because of their quality and design. The nipples are very smooth and durable, and the feeding holes won’t split or tear from frequent use. Additional nipples are also available in fast flow, medium flow and slow flow for various feeding stages.
Philips AVENT Natural Bottles make the feeding process simple and easy to mix breastfeeding and bottle feeding. I appreciate that the design of these bottles make the transition between the two feeding methods simple.
Modern Nursery Bedding
Olli & Lime features modern crib bedding and nursery décor. The designs they have created are vibrant and fresh, yet calming and simple at the same time.
I had the opportunity to check out this Olli & Lime fitted crib sheet. It is gorgeous and made of incredible quality. The elastic is thick and strong, pulling the sheet flat on the mattress.
The material is 100% cotton percale. The sheet came in a cute coordinating drawstring bag (which my toddler likes to use now as a “purse”…) but it will be a nice way to store the sheet in the linen closet when not in use.
Coordinating crib bedding is available such as bumpers, crib skirts, crib mobiles, wall decals, and even bedding for toddler, twin, and queen beds. Other patterns available include adorable pink pinwheels, blue trees, green geometric chevron stripes, and more. If you love modern design with chic clean lines, I highly recommend checking out this company.
I hope you are inspired by our baby shower gift ideas! Welcoming a new little one is such an exciting time!
