The Best Shower Gifts to Wow New Parents

When it comes to baby showers, you can gift new parents with everything from the practical (hi, diaper cake) to the extravagant. If you’re looking for a gift that will thrill them at the shower and for months or even years to come, look no further. These gift ideas can help save parents-to-be time, give them peace of mind or even a few minutes of “me” time.

Our list of knock-it-out-of-the-park items include some bigger, higher-priced options. If they’re out of your price range, consider organizing a group gift for the shower. By joining forces, you’ll have a memorable gift that will make lives easier and hearts full.

Give baby a comfy spot to rest, play and practice that tummy time—while parents know they’re secure so they check off to-dos like folding laundry. This lightweight, portable lounger mimics the security of the womb, offering baby comfort and reassurance.

Dockatot Deluxe+ Dock


Help baby get more rest—and the new parents too—with this all-in-one nightlight and sound machine. They can control each setting from their phone, from dimming the light to adjusting the volume. This smart system allows for automatic settings based on the family’s schedule, too, so the ocean sounds will automatically turn on for baby’s bedtime and naps. There’s even a time-to-rise alert for when baby gets older—allowing parents a few extra zzzz’s before their little one gets up.

In the first six months of baby’s life, play time and tummy time are essential for strength and development. This deluxe activity gym offers for a multitude of activities, along with lights and music for sensory stimulation. The play mat is handy for parents, too—knowing their baby is getting much-needed development, while they catch up on email or visit with friends.

Tiny Love Gymini Deluxe Infant Activity Gym Play Mat


This ingenious bath flower tub is versatile enough to fit in almost any sink. The plush material cradles baby to keep them warm and snug during bath time, helping them feel at ease in the water. Parents will love not having to worry about a slippery baby squirming. It can help make those first baths easier—and totally photo-worthy.

Blooming Baby Bath Lotus


Help active parents get adventure-ready with this easily maneuverable, durable jogging stroller. It offers an ultra-smooth ride but is still small enough to fit in the trunk. Baby can enjoy the view in an upright, padded seat with plenty of ventilation. Parents can stroll easy, knowing they can cruise the park or grocery store with baby comfortably in-tow.

BOB Jogging Stroller


A high-tech baby swing with smooth, gliding motion and five speeds to soothe baby. Its narrow design fits into small spaces and the subtle colors blend with most home decor. Why is this swing such a game-changer? Baby watches the world in comfort, while the parents make lunch, clean the kitchen or watch a little Netflix.

Whether the new parents want to walk the neighborhood or prep dinner, this super-secure baby carrier makes any activity easier (ahem, a new parents’ dream). There are four ways to wear baby front and back without putting strain on parents’ backs. The best part: it’s good for newborns to three years old, meaning this is the only carrier they’ll need.

BabyBjorn Baby Carrier One


Save working parents hours of time every week with way fewer bottles to wash. Moms can finally pump, store, warm and feed baby using the same container, saving time and things to wash. And no matter the type of breast pump they have, there’s an adapter to match.

Kiinde Twist Breastfeeding Gift Set


Say goodbye to hand mixing formula. Like a latte machine, this dispenser delivers formula in the perfect temperature and consistency every time. Not only is bottle prep super simple, but the machine also ensures baby doesn’t get clumps or air bubbles (which can cause gas and fussiness). Parents can adjust the size of the bottle as baby grows, and bottles are ready as soon as baby is hungry.

Baby Brezza Formula Pro Formula Dispenser


A sleek yet safe car seat, this is one gift that will last them from the time they bring baby home through elementary school (it goes up to 120 lbs!). Great for cars with narrow back seats, it also has machine washable covers, which any parent will appreciate.

Anything you can contribute to helping the new parents get some sleep will be appreciated. This wearable blanket swaddles baby up snug and comfy to help them sleep better. Named the First Candle/SIDS Alliance #1 Safe Sleep Product, the SleepSack gives new parents peace of mind when they put baby down. Extra bonus: the zipper makes swaddling and diaper changes quick and easy (even for newbies).

HALO Wearable Blanket


Babies go through a lot of diapers, so why not please the new parent with ones that are not only absorbent but super cute? These diapers from Hello Bello (the new line from actor-couple Kristen Bell and Dax Shepard, super-cute in their own right) are eco-friendly and hypoallergenic, and come in whimsical patterns like “party poopers,” “pees in a pod” and “girl pwr!”
