Baby Shower Thank You Gifts: 12+ Gift Ideas For Your Baby Shower

By  | 

Let’s be honest, most baby shower thank you gifts are impractical. In fact, the standard life cycle of a baby shower gift probably sounds a little bit like this — You receive the gift, bring it home, forget about it, find it six months later, have no use for it, throw it away, and then feel guilty about it. Does this sound familiar to anyone?

If you ask me, baby shower thank you gifts don’t always have to be cheesy. In my opinion, a cute thank you card, along with a gift that actually has some value, can really leave a lasting impression on your baby shower guests.

But I’ve gone both routes in the past — personalized baby shower thank you gifts versus useful gifts and a thank you card. And believe me, creating thoughtful and personalized gifts take a lot of hard work, time, and can be quite pricy! Check out my list of fun, practical baby shower thank you gifts below.

  • #MomLife Adult Coloring Book It’s 6:30 PM. By some miracle, one of your kids is asleep while the other is watching cartoons in a food coma. Quick! Here’s your chance!

Celebrate the humor and frustration that are the highs and lows of motherhood featured in the pages of this book.
