The Most Popular Baby Shower Gifts

Are you invited to a baby shower and you don’t know what to get the future mother to be? This article will give you some ideas. Baby showers are so emotional due to the variety of things the new baby receives. There are many things you can buy but personalized baby gifts that are the most recommended gifts. If you can personalize the baby gift you are giving, we bet that it will be unforgettable and treasured. There are other types of gifts that are also important such as essential gifts, unique gifts, and monogrammed gifts. 

Personalized Baby Gifts

There are many things that can be personalized. This means it is a gift that is made especially for the baby. There are many things that can be personalized and have the baby’s most important information such as bedtime books, blankets, quilts, songs, nightlights, teddy bear blankets, baby hats, paintings, and baby blankets. These are the types of gifts people save for many years. There is no better gift than the one that brings you the best memories and these types of gifts include the baby’s name, last name and even details of the day they were born.  

Unique Gifts

If you want to be different from the rest of the family and friends, you can choose a unique gift. There are many unique gifts you can buy such as a milestone blanket to measure how much they are growing, handprint and footprint to save a souvenir of the size of their hand or foot, baby swaddle blankets to keep them warm and tight,  and one of my favorites is the shopping cart hammock to keep them secure while you are shopping. A unique gift will always catch everyone’s attention. 

Essential Gifts

These types of gifts are for the baby’s essential needs. They are things all babies and moms need. A forehead thermometer which will comfortable measure the baby’s temperature.  Diaper bags are another favorite essential gift to pack diapers, clothes, bottles, wipes and many other important items. Pack n’ Plays are very helpful to keep your baby safe. A humidifier keeps your room free of moist. Burp cloths will help you keep the baby and yourself clean. Baby sling carriers are also important to carry around your baby.  Bibs are useful all the time. Baby hygiene kits are also important because they bring important items for the baby’s daily hygiene such as nail clippers. Portable changing pads are also useful and important. 

Monogrammed Gifts.

Items with monograms are cute and will bring a smile to the new mother to be’s face. There are many things that you can place monograms on such as clothes, blankets, quilts, stuffed animals, headbands, among many more. Most kids treasure their monogrammed items. 

We hope you were able to get ideas for the baby shower you are planning on attending. You can also visit our website https://makaboo.com for more ideas about personalized gifts for any occasion.

About Us

mākaboo Personalized Gifts was launched in St. Louis, MO in December of 2009 with the goal of becoming the nation’s premier online destination for high-end personalized children’s gifts. Since its launch, mākaboo has shipped gifts to all 50 states, and has been featured on Stroller Traffic, www.people.com and a variety of other local and national media outlets.

Since mākaboo is primarily an online retailer where customers cannot see and touch its products, the site features brands that moms already know and love – lines like Aden & Anais, Angel Dear, Bella Bliss, Kissy Kissy, and Swaddle Designs. We are proud to include our one-of-a-kind personalization experience, embroidery, and darling packaging free with all of our gifts.

About Makaboo's Founder

Cindy Teasdale McGowan, mākaboo’s founder, came up with the idea for mākaboo while working in the Product Group at Snapfish.com in San Francisco. She loved helping consumers to build tangible products with intangible software and thought no one was doing a fantastic job in the baby gift space.

In 2007, Cindy moved back to her hometown of St. Louis to be with her now-husband, real estate developer Bill McGowan. After a few stints at agencies in town, she decided to take the leap and start mākaboo.

Cindy graduated from Washington University in St. Louis in 1998. She and Bill now live in St. Louis’ Central West End with their cat Me (who used to have a brother named Julio), within a few miles of 18 of their 23 nieces and nephews.
