There must be something in the water, because several sweet friends of mine are having babies! One is due any day now and the others will make their appearance this Spring. I love shopping for baby gifts, maybe its because anything made 10x smaller is just too cute to handle.
Although it’s always best (and safest) to pick something off the baby registry, I have a collection of go to baby shower gifts that are so full of cuteness that anyone will love them. It’s nice to be able to find something fun and unique that the parents to be might not have thought of. Today, I have gathered 10 of my favorite girl baby shower gifts – all for varying uses and at different price points.
In need of a girl baby shower gift? Here are my recommendations:
Typically I like to pick one main gift and pick a few smaller items to go along with it. A swaddle, stuffed animal and book always go great together – don’t forget to write a sweet message inside the book! Outfits are nice too, think about getting pieces in various sizes not just newborn, this way the baby will be stocked through their first year with cute pieces of clothing.
When it comes to art work, pick a frame that will compliment the nursery theme. Don’t worry if you don’t know the theme – either go with basic white (like this one) or a gift card to allow parents to pick out their own frame.
Make it fun and pick a theme for your gifts – tropical, boho, nautical – but don’t be afraid to mix it up! If you’ve had a baby pick items that you fell in love with and think are must have items. And if you’re still stuck as to what to get pick three items from this girl baby shower gift: 1 practical item, 1 fun item, and 1 sentimental item.
And don’t forget the card!
Write words of congrats or wisdom to the new parents to be. It’s all about celebrating their sweet little girl, so you can either go full on sappy or light hearted and fun. Either way inject it with love and personality. I’ve designed a whimsical collection of girl cards over in the Paperie Shop, grab one here.
And don’t think I’ve forgotten about all those sweet boys! A boys collection is in the works!
If you’re looking for a girl baby shower gift, I hope this takes all the guess work out of it!
