7 Practical Shower Gifts She'll Love

I am at a point in my life where everyone around me is pregnant. And everyone being pregnant means lots of baby showers in my future. I love gift giving, but sometimes I have a hard time finding inspiration. I don’t want to give something that will never get used. I want to gift things that are sensible and needed.

After being at my sister’s baby shower today, who is due in just a few weeks (EEEK!), I found lots of inspiration. Here are some of my top picks for sensible baby shower gifts from Disney Baby!

Perfectly Adorable (and Practical) Disney Baby PJs for Newborns

When I was a new mom dressing a tiny baby girl, my purchasing criteria when it came to clothes was simple: “Is it cute?” That was pretty much it. I didn’t take practicality into consideration all that much, because 1) I just didn’t know, and 2) I only had one child so I had plenty of time to dress my little one in precious knit rompers with 8,000 button holes to button. Now that I’ve gone through the baby stage and will soon be going through it again, I’ve come to realize that practicality is pretty important. I won’t have as much time to dress two children, and any time- and sanity-saving shortcuts will be much appreciated — especially when it comes to pajamas! I’ll have plenty of middle-of-the-night diaper changes in my near future, and when I’m in a sleepless stupor, I’m quite certain I’ll want to be dealing with simple clothing. Here are some cute and practical Disney Baby PJs that are perfect for newborns — the best of both worlds!

A Perfectly Lovely Book Themed Baby Shower!

I had the wonderful fortune of throwing a baby shower for a dear friend of my mine, Claire, with her mother (and grandmother-to-be) Leslie, and our mutual friends Melanie, Deirdre and Jody. Since Claire doesn’t know the gender of her baby, we wanted a theme that was versatile but specific to the Mama-to-Be, too. With so many clever, crafty women helping to plan this baby shower, we came up with the perfect theme for our bookworm friend: a book themed baby shower!

We went wild with the theme, even including a build a library request, asking guests to bring an unwrapped children’s book in lieu of a card. We had plenty of bookish activities and games and the Mama-to-Be was simply glowing with excitement and joy. Take a look through Claire’s Book Themed Baby Shower to find shower games, activities and decoration inspiration for your next shower!
