Top 10 Baby Shower gifts for 2022

  1. Portable Sound Machine 

Sleep will soon become a parent-to-be’s biggest obsession and any tool to help them get more sleep will be much appreciated. This portable sound machine was a life-saver as a new mom. Not only did I use it on the road, in the grocery store, even at church, we also use it as our son’s everyday sound machine in his nursery. If the power goes out, the sound machine stays on since it’s battery-powered! Another popular sound machine is The Hatch which has many features such as a “time to rise” night light which will come in handy when their child is a toddler. 

  1. Swaddles and Sleepsacks 

Check out this incredible swaddle designed and made by a mom herself – The Swaddlini! Once the baby begins to show signs of rolling over, the parent will want to transition from a swaddle into a sleepsack. Our favorite sleep sack is the Woolino because it grows with your child from ages 2-24 months.

  1. The Buggie Huggie

Most parents in preparation for their first baby shower are not usually thinking about gear they will need at the 12+ months age. What they don’t realize is how quickly their newborn baby becomes a toddler! The Buggie Huggie is an innovative safety shopping cart cover/tray that attaches to your shopping cart to secure & entertain your toddler while you shop in peace. The Buggie Huggie is collapsible and can be easily stored for future use when the child reaches about a year old. 

  1. Postpartum Recovery Kit for Mom 

A new mom won’t understand how much she needs these items until she has her baby. She will be forever grateful to you for this assortment of gifts! Consider items such as a Kindred Bravely nursing bra, Lanolin, a water bottle with a straw, reusable breast pads, Tucks pads, Pantiliners, a LaVie Lactation Massager, and plenty of snacks such as granola bars, mixed nuts, and the like to put together the perfect postpartum recovery kit. 

  1. Books instead of a card

You can never go wrong gifting your favorite board book for your baby in place of a baby shower card! They usually end up being around the same price and you know it won’t end up in the trash. 

  1. Baby Carrier 

Closeness to mama in the first few months of a baby’s life is so crucial for their development. There are so many to choose from these days but our favorite baby carriers are the Baby K’tan and the Ergo Baby (great for mom and dad).

  1. FridaBaby Basics Kit 

A very practical gift but something a new parent may not remember to purchase before the baby comes is the FridaBaby Basics Kit! You can also pair this with a variety of products such as vaseline, gas drops, baby Tylenol, and the like to fill up the parent’s medicine cabinet for the baby. 

  1. Lovevery Play Kits

Designed with a child’s development in mind, these play kits are the perfect baby shower gift! The Lovevery shop also has a range of collections such as a play gym, block set, play tunnel, and more for you to choose from. 

  1. Diapers 

Purchasing diapers as part of your baby shower gift will be the greatest gift you could give! Newborns go through 8-12 diapers a day so you can imagine this becomes a large expense. You can never go wrong purchasing plenty of the newborn size and size 1. A lot of kids also stay in size 4 for quite some time between the ages of 8-24 months. *Make sure to ask the parent if they are planning to use cloth diapers instead of disposable diapers before purchasing. 

  1. Carseat 
A carseat is an essential baby shower gift but can be so overwhelming for a mom to know which one to choose. Our top pick is the Chicco KeyFit 30 Infant Car Seat. Here’s a great article on the best car seats for 2022 from
