I don’t think cash is a bad gift at all! But if you want to give them a gift, just ask the moms what they still want/need. I couldn’t attend a baby shower earlier this year, so I just sent a note to the mom to be and told her I couldnt’ attend, but to just let me know what else she still needed afterwards and I would get something off that list. It worked well, and she actually was glad that I did it that way!

We got some cash gifts for my daughter’s baptism, and it was awesome! It’s a great way to help the new parents start a savings account for the new baby.  Definitely gift cards are always nice.  If you’re not sure which store to buy from, just ask the moms.  They probably have a preference.

Oh, and practical things like diapers, wipes, soap, baby lotion, etc… are great at any age!  Just ask the mom first what brands she prefers.

I always get a montage of stuff… aveeno baby lotion, nighttime/bath stuff, and lots of other practical items… then I get a baby keepsake box and use that to put everything in.

I LOVED the keepsake boxes I got with DS so I always snag one now to give.

You can make it as cost effective or over the top as you like.. and you just can’t have too many practical items for baby =)

I agree. Just ask her(them) what she(they) still needs.

My best friend reviews bath toys for babies. It’s a nice gift idea because it’s not super popular, but kids love toys for the bath & it’s really helpful for parents – there are lots of kids who can actually be afraid of the bath (including my little one for a short time!!) & bath toys can be the key to making bath time fun (sanity saver!). Seriously, there are lots of very cute (and inexpensive) toys out there that make sweet baby gifts.
