Everybody wants to know what everybody else bought for baby
shower gifts. You want to see the biggest and brightest smile on the

Your best bet is to just choose something from the parents’ baby

Here are some tips to keep in mind when shopping for
baby shower gifts:
*The baby’s needs are more important than his/her
If you simply cannot decide between a cute baby outfit and a
personalized picture frame, choose the one that the baby can’t go
without. A baby will always need clothes, but the picture frame can
*Shop around before making your final selection.
You might stumble across the perfect gift at the first place you look,
but you could end up spending more than you have to if you don’t shop
around. Many department and baby stores sell the same items, so go to 2
or 3 stores to compare prices. You can also shop online to see if
stores are having any online specials.
*Buy more than just newborn stuff.
Keep in mind that babies grow fast. So if you’re buying clothes, shoes
or toys, consider buying both newborn gifts along with things the baby
can use during the months after infancy. A great
idea for clothing is to buy three outfits as one present; one for a
newborn, one for a 12 month old, and one for a 24 month old.
*Check the baby registry.
Even if you do not plan to use the registry, you still may end up
buying something that someone else has already purchased. So check the
registry to make sure you don’t buy a duplicate item.
