The 4 Components of the Perfect Baby Shower Gift

I’ve reached that age. That age where at all times, one of my friends is expecting. And with all the babies on the way, that means showers (and the gifts to go along with them) are frequent.

If you’re experiencing the same slew of showers, I’ve come up with four components of the perfect baby shower gift to help you out. This philosophy works every time:

Gift a wear, need, want, and read.

Like at Christmastime! And, just think — by following this, you’ll get to have fun picking out a tiny outfit; you’ll share your #1 essential (hello swaddle blankets) to help the mom survive; you’ll treat the mom to something just for her; and you’ll give them a story to share. It’s the perfect gift quadrant.

What’s your go-to baby shower gift?
