What Gifts Should You Bring to a Baby Shower?

She’s a good friend, she’s pregnant and she is having a baby shower.  Now the question is, “What gift should you give her at this special celebration?”


Most mothers take the guesswork out of this by setting up a gift registry with a local toy, hardware, furniture and/or clothing store. Gift registries can also be set up on some sites on the Internet.


Usually, the expectant mother will tell you directly what kind of gifts she we would like or what items she needs to complete her nursery. If the mother is the shy type, you can probably pry a lot of information out of her mother, husband or sisters as to her needs and tastes.


Asking the mother what her favorite colors is a must. Some mothers hate yellow and pink and like to dress their babies in black. Also it is a good idea to ask the mother what her favorite foods are and if she has any allergies. Some people are allergic to things like chocolate and peanuts or react to certain fragrances and perfumes.


If there are no suggestions or you can’t afford what is on the registry (which is often the case) then consider buying a gift that pampers mom, candy or spa products.  Diapers and soothers are a good idea and you can go wrong with a toy for a newborn.  Keepsakes as photo albums and frames are recommended as well as gift certificates for photography.


Food might also be very welcome.  Consider buying bottle of champagne for the happy parents to share after the birth of the baby or bringing a frozen casserole that they can enjoy later.  A simple gift basket full of baby-foods or exotic foods for the adults is also a nice idea.


Sometimes the mother-to-be is strapped for cash, in which case you can set up a donation station at the event.  There are many fun versions of this. Consider pinning money to a tree or clothesline or label a diaper pail  “The Mommy Fund” and encourage guests to step on the pedal and drop money into it.


If you want to be discreet it is a very nice idea to buy a teddy bear with a zipper and then ask people to stuff it with paper bills.  Even quieter is simply opening a bank account in the mother’s name and then handing her the account book at the end of the party.
