So you thought about getting a bath and body set, changed your mind and picked out a toy, but everyone is likely to already have those sorts of gifts. So what now? If you want to bring a unique gift to a baby shower, you have to think outside of the box and come up with a few cool baby gift ideas. Cool items such as funky baby clothes, personalised baby gifts for boys and girls and cool gifts for mom and dad are all great options.

Personalised Baby Gifts

Personalised baby gifts never grow old, but should only be purchased if you know the name and the sex of the expected. Choosing personalised baby gifts is a lot easier if the baby has already been born, so you can always choose to wait on this one. When you do know their name and whether or not it’s a boy or a girl, you can pick any of a number of personalised styles including football style shirts, rompers and grows, t-shirts, or jackets and track suit tops with their baby’s name on it. The fact that the gift has been personalised shows that you took the time to choose something specifically for the baby rather than grabbing the first thing you saw.

Funky Baby Clothes

If the parents like this sort of thing, funky baby clothes are a great way to go. From leopard or zebra print baby grows to tuxedo shirts and rompers, there are plenty of really cool gifts for babies. Try deciding what the parents like, what they don’t like and then choosing from the wide range of cute new-born baby clothes. In this case, you’ll probably have more luck online, as the parents will be less likely to have already seen the outfit. Cool or funny slogans, especially if personalised, can add a great deal of interest and appeal to any shirt. Best of all, choosing cool baby clothes with slogans, prints, or patterns will mean that your gift stands out and it’s likely no one else will have anything similar.

Fun Stuff for Parents

Don’t know what to get the parents? If funky baby clothes are out then you could consider getting a variety of fun stuff for the parents. Personalised maternity T-shirts, dad and baby t-shirts and even wall art can all make excellent gifts.

The important thing to keep in mind when purchasing a gift for a baby shower is that it should appeal to the parents, the baby won’t have any say in things for some time. Most of these baby gift ideas make great gifts for new-born babies and birthdays as well, providing you leave out the maternity shirts.
