Something unusual yet practical for a baby shower gift for a new mother would be ideal. Newborn outfits are cute but babies outgrown these so quickly and the mother-to-be gets so many outfits that she can change the baby multiple times a day and still never use all the clothes that have been given to the new little one. A gift for the shower has to be more creative or unusual but still one that the new mother can find to be useful.
Handmade items are right from the heart. Giving a gift that is one of a kind that is not found in any store is priceless. When the shower gifts are open, your gift will not be the same as another because a handmade gift, such as a handmade baby quilt, is not only unique but it is made with love by the person who created it.
Finally, the baby shower gift needs to last a lifetime or be a keepsake. Of course, those little outfits, diapers, and baby gift sets are needed by all new moms. But a baby shower gift that is not put in a drawer somewhere, or left on the shelf in the closet to be forgotten after the thank you notes are written, is the perfect gift to give.
Before you decide on your next baby shower gift, and make sure it is unusual but practical, handmade and a keepsake to last a lifetime.
