A Guide to (Actually) Useful Present Ideas for a Baby Shower

Welcoming a baby into the world is always an exciting event and new parents need all the help they can get both before and after the little one is born. A baby shower is a special occasion where the closest friends and family members come together to celebrate the upcoming arrival of a new little bundle of joy and it is an opportunity for loved ones to show their support and share in the excitement surrounding this precious event. If you have been invited to a baby shower but aren’t sure about what presents you should bring, we’ve compiled a list of gift ideas that are actually practical and will be of great help to the new family.

Baby monitor

A baby monitor with an audio system is a true game changer for new parents, especially if it is their first newborn. These devices come equipped with sound sensors that detect any noise coming from the baby’s crib, allowing parents to hear what is going on without having to walk into the nursery every time. The camera also allows them to check in on their little one throughout the day or night from another location within the home in case they need to run some errands and leave the baby with a sitter or a relative. As much as they are practical, these items also offer peace of mind as they provide an extra layer of security for both parents and the baby.

Baby clothes

There is no such thing as too many baby clothes; not only babies grow up incredibly fast, but they need to be changed a lot more often as well. If you decide to get the new parents some onesies, sweaters, and trousers, you can be assured that your present will definitely be appreciated. In case you don’t have time to go shopping in stores and wander around the aisles, we suggest getting some Irish onesies online. These garments have nice and silly designs that will look adorable on the baby while also being made of the fabrics of the highest quality, which is so important for the gentle and sensitive baby skin. Irish onesies also come in a variety of sizes so you can get a few different ones for different ages.

Gift certificate

If you don’t have kids, have never been invited to a baby shower before, and generally have no idea what would make a good present, gift certificates are always appreciated when welcoming a new baby into the family home. This present gives the parents the freedom to choose what works best for them without having to worry about returning items later on. Get them a gift certificate at one of their favorite shops or a popular online store so that they can get everything they need before the baby is born. Additionally, getting them a gift certificate for their favorite restaurant would be a nice gesture as well, since this will help them go on a nice date and relax before the tiring months that are waiting for them.
