Becoming a parent is an exciting but overwhelming time. People experience the transition to parenthood in different ways, so the most helpful gifts for a baby shower need to be tailored to the individual. You know her best, after all!
One of the most useful ways to support a mom-to-be is by setting up a PishPosh Baby gift registry so she receives baby shower gifts she actually wants. This way, her family and friends can lovingly celebrate, pamper and help the new family through those first few weeks with a selection of carefully chosen gifts that offer longevity. Think outside the box and really consider who you’re buying for with our collection of unique baby shower gifts for mom to be.
Services With A Smile
You know what parents of a newborn need most? Not hundreds of the same babygro – they’ve already bought those. They need baby shower gift ideas to help with cooking, cleaning, looking after other children or pets and relaxing. If you live nearby or are staying, try these baby shower gifts for guests.
Organize a meal train to bring in a supply of nutritious meals, offer to clean their house or do the laundry, and take out their older kids or dog for a walk. If you’re not around to help, there are plenty of online food delivery companies to choose from. Or support mom during feeding and nap times. Pay for a subscription to a TV streaming service or access to a library of audiobooks, or buy her an e-reader.
Creating a meal train for your friend is an invaluable gift!
Cozy And Comfortable For Postpartum Care
Birth can be an overwhelming experience, both physically and emotionally, so baby shower gifts for mom that pamper her and lift her spirits will always be welcome. New moms usually spend quite a lot of time at home so pick out a comfy but stylish robe that’s easy to throw on and convenient for breastfeeding and pumping. Add in some cozy slippers and feeding-friendly PJs.
A beautiful nursing pillow that will support her during breast or bottle feeding is a must. Our collection will double up as a pretty cushion, too – win-win.
Help Mom Prioritize Herself
Don’t forget some face and body products to make her feel like herself or – if you know her well – some high-quality reusable postpartum or breast pads. You could even subscribe her to a new mom beauty box. These are delivered straight to her home and are full of useful, luxury treats like dry shampoo, brightening face mask and eye serum.
Sleep is also a priority! Some really unique baby shower gifts would be decent ear plugs, an eye mask, a white noise machine and noise-canceling earphones. You could even book a therapist to give her a calming, relaxing and rejuvenating postpartum massage at home.
Something To Capture Memories
The early days of parenthood can be exhausting and tired mom and dad may not have the time or energy to take any decent snaps. Do it for them and present them with a gift they’ll remember forever. Narrow down a single print and frame it beautifully, make them a printed photo book or give them a voucher for a newborn photo shoot.
Or choose a gift set, like this Jacqueline&Jac Beanie and Blanket. The pretty gift box can be used afterwards for keepsakes, like their little one’s first lock of hair, hospital wristband and first baby toys.
The Really Useful Big Items
Want to get something that’s practical, useful and has longevity? These are the best baby shower gifts you can buy. You could even team up with other friends and family. First, never underestimate the power of a good changing bag – especially one that they’ll actually want to carry. PishPosh Baby has a ton of sleek and stylish diaper bags and changing clutches.
Second, if mom is keen to wear their little one around the house or out and about, a good-quality child carrier or wrap is a practical gift they’ll use every day. Finally, a DockATot dock is a multifunctional godsend. Use it for supervised lounging, playing, resting, cuddling, diaper changes and tummy time, at home or out and about.

Something She Doesn’t Know She Needs
Even experienced parents can be surprised and delighted by receiving a gift they didn’t know they needed. Make life easier for your friend by getting ahead of the curve.
We love the Skip Hop Grab & Go Snug Seal Wipes Case. She’ll never have to deal with dried-out wipes because the silicone seal locks in moisture so wipes stay fresh. Plus, an inner spring helps wipes pop out easily, which is very useful indeed when you have baby poop all over your hands!
From baby shower gift bags and nursery essentials to little luxuries and big-ticket purchases, gift giving for the new parents in your life has never been easier with PishPosh Baby.
