The Perfect Baby Shower Gift Ideas
So your girlfriend is having a baby and you don't know what to buy her. Most mamas-to-be will create a registry, but one thing I noticed during my pregnancy was that nobody wanted to stick with that registry. Not that I was ungrateful for the gifts I received, because I was; but half of the stuff either wasn't something I needed, or it wasn't our style (clothing especially). So, on behalf of all mamas to be everywhere, please stick to the registry if that's what they want.
If you have a mama that is more low-key, or unsure of what she wants; then sisters I'm here for your with this baby shower gift ideas list. These are items that I found to be either completely essential and life saving (but something I don't think most people know about); or just really fun and unique.
Here are a few baby shower gift ideas that your GF is sure to love and that will certainly get put to good use:
1. Design letters bibs and baby book.
I never particularly liked the over the top baby books; I wanted one that would stand the test of time. This baby book by Design Letters will never goes out of style. Much like the rest of their collection, their simplistic yet chic take on baby gear is an all time favorite of mine.
This Letter Bib is also from Design Letters and I love it because it's not over the top and cheesy. It doesn't say something like, "I only listen to grandma." I mean, who really wants to flaunt that? Not me. I like the gender neutral appeal of this line. They have so many good choices, but these are two of my faves.
2. Gender Neutral Basics
I'm all about the gender neutrals that have made their way into the baby world. Thank goodness we have moved past the days of green and yellow being the only gender neutral appropriate colors. Welcome your friend's baby into the world with the coolest new items, like these too cool for school baby booties, jean jacket, and Modern Burlap swaddle.

3. A Diaper Delivery Service
Parasol baby diapers ! Not only are these the absolute cutest diapers in the baby butt covering game, but they deliver! This is a complete game changer for exhausted mothers and fathers. I never liked giving diapers as a gift before because despite being a necessity, they aren't all that fun to receive. But not these bad boys. Parasol is a designer diaper delivery service and they really are the best gift ever. Send her a diaper subscription and her life is completely made!

4. A Baby Mobile
A good mobile is always a good gift especially when it comes from Baby Jives. These mobiles are pure magic that fit in with most decor, and have such a special vibe to them. I mean, just look at them, I want one for my room and I'm not even a baby.
Aside from the element of design, baby crib mobiles play an essential role in a child’s nursery. Your baby will follow the movement of the mobile, strengthening the muscles in his eyes.
Here are just a few of the benefits of mobiles for babies: Visual Stimulation, Develop Motor Skills, Educational Benefits.
5. Mon Petit Shoes
Mon Petit Shoes is one of my favorite small businesses to support when buying for new mamas I care about. Each pair of these shoes are handmade by the owner or one of her amazing seamstresses. The quality is amazing and the color choices are next level. Unlike 90% of baby shoes, these actually will stay on your little goober's feet, so you don't have to worry about stopping and searching for lost shoes.
I hope you like this baby shower gift ideas as much as I liked making it. Honestly, I want to have another baby just so I can get these fun goodies for the sweet bundle of joy! True friends get their friends gifts they actually want.
