1. Mama Llama Chase Pillow
We aren’t just putting the Chase Pillow on the list because it’s our product. The Chase Pillow made the list because every expecting mom/parent needs a good breastfeeding pillow or bottle feeding pillow. When breast or bottle feeding, the posture of both baby and feeder is of the utmost importance. If you give our feeding pillow as a gift, you’re ensuring that whoever is receiving it will have better feeding posture and more comfort when sharing these intimate moments with their newborn.
2. Design Dua Basket Bassinet
Safe to say we are living for basket bassinets right now. Not only is this one from Design Dua absolutely adorable, it is completely handmade with dried natural elephant grass and are of the highest quality. This cute bassinet is sure to wow your expecting friend or loved one.
3. Baby Arrival Gift Set
If you want to make the parent-to-be’s life a little easier, start with bathtime. This gift set from The Honest Company has everything they need for bathtime including body wash, shampoo, lotion, and balm.

4. Comotomo Baby Bottles
In our opinion, the baby bottles by Comotomo are the best on the market. The evolved design of the bottles mimics breastfeeding to help babies transition back and forth from nursing to bottle feeding.

7. Solly Baby Wrap
What better baby shower gift than the wrap that was voted “Best Wrap” by NYT’s Wirecutter? Solly Baby’s wraps help to reduce infant crying and increase connection while being worn hands free with comfort. For babies weighing 8 to 25 pounds, these wraps are perfect for keeping newborns close.
8. Hospital Packing Kit
An expecting mom can never really be too prepared to give birth. To help new moms prepare quickly and easily, FridaBaby offers a packing kit full of essentials for labor, delivery, and postpartum while at the hospital.
9. Video Baby Monitor
There are tons of baby monitors on the market – several of which cost a couple hundred dollars. Although a video baby monitor is a must, we don’t think you need to spend nearly that much for one that is high-quality. One of our current favorites is the Summer In View 2.0 Color Video Monitor, which has a lot of the same features as more expensive options, but for more than half the cost.
10. Letters to My Baby
If you want to go the sentimental route with your baby shower gift, you can’t go wrong with this set from Uncommon Goods. The prompts will help the parents-to-be document every sweet moment so that their child can look back on them when they are older. This set is perfect for creating memories for years to come!
