While baby showers are all about celebrating the parents-to-be, at their core it is more about setting up the parents with everything they would need to welcome and care for this new bundle of joy.
Finding the perfect baby shower gift is a whole new challenge. That’s because you are no longer buying a gift that matches the couple's choices or interests, or something that looks good. Instead, you need to buy a thoughtful gift that will make the new parents feel calm and less stressed when they haven’t slept for 48 hours or a gift that will create family memories or something that is simple but long-lasting. What makes it more difficult is the latest baby gear and products that come out in the market. There is always something new, better, and prettier.
But don’t you worry! We have researched and rounded up the best and latest baby gear, toys, and products for you right here. From fancy and the most comfortable baby products to simple and cute gifts that you can buy as an add-on to a gift from the parent's registry, our list of the 10 best baby shower gifts of 2022 has everything!
New parents will remember you with love when they have to prepare those middle-of-the-night feedings! The BabyBreeza Formula Pro is like a fancy cappuccino machine but one that makes the perfect temperature baby formula. This Wi-Fi-enabled smart device makes a bottle of warm formula at the touch of a button. In fact, parents can even make a bottle from their bed by simply using their smartphones. Life saver, right?! It works with all brands of formula and bottles and that’s why it makes an amazing gift for new parents.
Baby nails are like the sharpest things ever!! Babies always manage to scratch their cute faces with their nails and no matter how many times you cut them, they grow back so much faster. That’s why these cute and soft baby mittens with extra-long wrists (to ensure they stay on) make the perfect gift.
A portable changing pad is a must-have for new parents. The Pronto Changing Pad is sleek and folds up like a cute bag, which makes it perfect for storing in the diaper bag, stroller or car. It comes with everything anyone needs to quickly and easily change a baby’s diaper including a built-in pad and pillow.
There is no better gift than a good night’s sleep for new parents! And this gift will help you do just that. The Baby Shusher is more like a portable white noise machine that uses a real human voice to help the baby sleep. It gives parents a chance to rest and catch up on their nap while the miracle sound machine puts their baby to sleep.
A nursing top makes a great gift for a mom on the go. She can use it to get some privacy while breastfeeding or double it up and use it as a shade for a baby in the car or stroller.
The American Academy of Pediatrics does not recommend using blankets for babies in cribs until they are 1 year old. That’s why this sleepsack, a wearable blanket, makes the best baby shower gift idea. The little one will feel snug and comfy inside this super soft sleepsack and enjoy a good night’s sleep. It is available in a range of colors and patterns.
This amazingly comfy pillow is known to make nursing comfortable and easy anywhere and anytime. Gift this to a new mom and she will surely remember you during those completely exhausted late-night feeding sessions. This nursing pillow can also be later used by parents for the little one’s tummy time.
New parents, especially first-time parents, only think about the baby. Nobody thinks and prepares themselves for postpartum recovery. Have you ever seen a baby shower gift registry with postpartum essentials?? No, right? That’s why this one is so so important and any new parent would really appreciate it when they finally reach this stage. Complete with ice maxi pads, postpartum underwear, cooling pad liners, and healing foam, this kit will be a lifesaver for any new mom.
Bath time can be a little difficult during those initial days for both parents and the baby. Make it a fun time for both by giving them this Moby Baby Bath Set. It comes with a soft spout cover, a cushy kneeler for parents kneeling in front of the bath while giving their bubs a nice bath, a non-slip mat that can be used inside the bath, and a padded elbow rest with pockets for basic essentials.
A playmat is multi-functional. It can be used as a playmat (obviously!), nursery rug, tummy time, or a quick nap, and this one is even great as an educational toy that the baby can use to learn things once they grow up a bit. The vibrant colors and cute graphics make it extremely attractive for babies. While for parents, the fact that it is machine washable and travel-friendly makes it the perfect baby shower gift.
