The tradition of throwing baby showers started in the early 1900’s and has since become a notional tradition. Umbrellas were typically the first gifts because they were usually held in the afternoon and were used to shade the ladies from the sun. Since then, it has become increasingly difficult to come up with creative baby shower gifts. Never you fear though, because we have many wonderful baby shower gift ideas.
One really creative baby shower gifts plan is to assign each attendant at the party a different part of the baby’s life. For instance, have one attendant’s time be bath-time so they get bath related gift items only. Have another participant do meal-time and purchase items like bibs and bowls. This way, the awaiting mother doesn’t get overlapping items and it helps every gift be more unique.
Another creative baby shower gifts idea is to make a pack of car goods to have ready on the go. This pack could contain a change of clothes for baby as well as basic changing equipment and the like. This is good for Mommy should baby soil itself or need care on the go. The kit could also include a thermometer and a small bag to contain used diapers.
