The best baby shower gift is homemade.

I received a very sturdy, homemade crochet blanket from a coworker, that is so soft and took her a lot of thought and effort to make. I love it, I'm sure mason will love being snuggled up i!n it

The best baby shower gift is a promise for an act of service after the baby is born; a meal, cleaning house, going grocery shopping for the family, babysitting older children etc.

The best baby shower gift depends on the lifestyles of the parents

Ohh, I agree with TallSarkEyes, the VERY BEST baby shower gift is the offer to cook, clean, take siblings to the park, or rock the new baby while mom takes a few minutes of ME TIME. Lord knows I'm missing some me time these days.

Or books for the baby

I agree with Tenk and talldarkeyes: a meal, offer to clean/buy a maid service for them. 

also, hand me downs. I LOVE hand me downs, the fact that they've been used and loved by parents and baby already makes me verklempt.

The best gift is a children's book that the gift giver read out loud and copied on to a CD so the child can have their own read along, in the voice of a loved one!

The best gift is something you truly want/need. Like a nap, meal, diapers, shower, that Adien& Anis baby blanket. Etc.

Or, The Womanly Art of Breastfeeding, if they don't already own it.

The best baby shower gift is something to pamper mom not baby.

Oh, I agree 100%. Mom needs to be pampered/taken care of because all baby needs is boobs and diapers smile.gif

The best baby shower gift is "time" for cleaning, food, or a nap [and chocolate, dark chocolate is always the right answer.]

post #17 of 35

The best gift for a mom/parent to be is money or a VISA/MC/Amex gift card. 

post #18 of 35

The best baby shower gift for a new mom-to-be is something handmade. Even if the handmade gifts I've gotten are not always *totally* my style, they have all made me tear up because of the special effort someone put into making something for my baby <3

post #19 of 35

A package of several massages with promise to watch baby so Mom can actually take time for the massage :)

post #20 of 35

The best baby shower gift for a new mom-to-be is something the mom actually wants or needs! (Exactly as monkey pants said.)

That's not to say it's easy to figure that out! Maybe you will be giving the new mom something she wants but doesn't know she wants or needs!
