Spring is all about new beginnings, so it can feel like an extra special time to have a baby shower. And for an extra special baby shower, you’ll want to make sure you have the perfect gift picked out for the expecting parents and their future little one.
The good news is that shopping for a spring baby shower can actually be quite fun. After all, any opportunity to buy some tiny things for tiny humans and to show your love for a friend or family member as they celebrate this huge life change is a great time.
There are a few approaches you can take to finding the perfect baby shower gift for spring. Perhaps you want to create a themed gift that’s all about the spring season? Or, maybe you want to pick something super practical you know the expecting parents need? And, of course, you can always just go the route of picking out the cutest dang baby clothes and toys you can find. No matter which approach you choose, below are some gift ideas that are perfect for a spring baby shower.
Personalized Gifts are a thoughtful idea for any occasion, and a baby shower is definitely no exception. If you’re looking for a gift that’s as personal as it is practical, a monogrammed tote is the perfect option for an expecting parent.
Opt for a tote that’s perfect for carrying baby essentials, like a quilted bag with a zip-top closure, lots of pockets, and a water-resistant base. Add a monogram of their last name or if they’ve already picked out their baby’s name, you can do the baby’s full initials. To complete this gift, you can add some goodies inside, like some cloth diapers or a cute spring-themed bunny or duck stuffed animal.
Sticking with the idea of a thoughtful personalized gift, new parents will get a ton of use out of some fresh, super soft kids' towels that they can use after bath time. This is another one of those gift ideas that you can make oh-so-cute while still keeping it practical.
Go with a seriously adorable and just as soft kids cotton hooded towel with a little dinosaur or rainbow hood. This is also something that the baby can use as they grow into a little kiddo, so you can trust that the parents and little one alike will get lots of use out of this gift. A monogrammed touch elevates this baby shower gift and you can also combine it with some baby-friendly bubble bath or soap to take it to that next level.
Every expecting parent will be in the process of setting up their nursery, so gifts that’ll help with getting this space ready are always a great option. Storage for kids’ toys like a cute and versatile canvas storage tote will fit perfectly in any nursery and will help parents keep things feeling tidy and organized. You can even pick some cute spring-themed toys or little picture books to put into the storage bin and turn this into a cute and practical gift basket.
A child's laundry hamper is another idea here. As parents navigate the seemingly endless cycles of laundry that having a baby can create (all worth it when you look at that cute little face, of course!), they’ll appreciate having a stylish laundry hamper on hand.
A seagrass round lidded hamper will fit into the aesthetic of any nursery and you can even gift it with some adorable baby clothes, like a duck onesie or a pastel bucket hat if you want to keep it within the spring theme.
Another great option for a spring baby shower is a super soft blanket. From snuggling on the couch to rocking chair lullabies, new parents will have a lot of adorable opportunities for using a new throw blanket or baby blanket.
Opt for a cloudlike cashmere bamboo throw blanket in a soft pastel hue that’s perfect for spring, like a lovely yellow or sky blue shade. Or, go with a Scottish lace bear baby blanket in pink, blue, or ivory that pairs perfectly with a cute bear onesie or pastel PJ set for the little one.
Practical yet cute and fun, all of these gifts will be a major hit for a spring baby shower. Now you can focus on enjoying the seasonal canapes, cute photo ops, and of course, fawning over expecting parents!
