After the long winter, there seem to be lot of babies due in the summer. I have a few friends who have recently welcomed a new member into their family, or have announced that a new little one will be arriving soon, so baby shower gifts are on my mind. The essentials are great for the new mom and dad but I really love to find something fun to include too!
Even in the summer, baby hats are a good thing for new babies since they can’t regulate their temperatures very well and it can really get cool at night! CafePress has a great selection of funny and unique baby hats, and every one of them comes in a variety of colours (sky blue, petal pink, kiwi and cloud white) so you can be as gender specific or neutral as you want!
If baby has already arrived, customized baby blankets are a nice gift. Measuring 32 inches x 37 inches, with solid pink or blue on one side and a sweet polka dot pattern on the other, CafePress has you covered whether you’re looking for something sweet (like little animals) or something geared towards Mommy or Daddy’s interests (zombies, anyone?).
I’m a sucker for cool baby clothes. My best advice is to buy the bigger sizes! Especially for things like t-shirts and onesies that can be layered; babies grow so fast and many parents prefer sleepers for the early days so having a drawer full of newborn or 0-3 month clothing can be a waste. It’s also nice for parents to have some bigger sizes on hands for those overnight growth spurts. Can’t quite find what you’re looking for? Design your own gifts and you can be sure that you won’t arrive with a duplicate!
