Unique Baby Shower Gifts

  • JJ Cole Collections' Outdoor Blanket

    Perfect for taking baby to the park or the beach, this water-resistant, cotton outdoor blanket folds up in a snap and features a detachable strap for carrying. Measuring 5-feet by 7-feet, it's big enough for the whole family to enjoy and wipes clean with ease. ($49.95, JJ Cole Collections)

  • Life in Play's Handbag Organizer

    This mom-designed handbag organizer—available in coffee, magenta or black—proves that style needn't be sacrificed after you become a mother. The 11-pocket collapsible purse insert, which is complete with a changing pad and insulated bottle compartment to keep liquids at the ideal temperature, instantly transforms mom's favorite tote bag into a functional diaper bag. Just fill it and go! ($110, Life in Play Company)

  • Inspired By Baby's NOLAbles

    Preparing baby bottles in advance for a childcare provider is convenient, but sticky notes spelling out how much and when to feed baby can easily slip off, causing feeding time confusion. These adjustable, washable and reusable labels can be written on with an included dry erase marker and then snapped securely onto baby's bottle. BPA and lead free, NOLAbles can be used in the fridge and freezer and then run through the dishwasher for a complete clean. There are 10 different styles to choose from, including four designed by celebrity mom Tori Spelling. (Available for pre-order for $14.99, Inspired By Baby)

  • Yookidoo Gymotion Robo Playland

    Easy-to-fold and transport, this activity playground offers three stages of play to engage baby as she grows from an infant to a toddler. It features dual music modes, a battery operated musical buggy, flower face rattle, a double-sided tummy time pillow, two robot characters and a large mirror to keep baby entertained for hours. ($69.95, Amazon)

  • DayDreamer Sleeper

    Developed by an infant product specialist, this baby sleeper features a comfortable 28-degree incline that allows baby's head to rest higher than his hips, which creates a more natural sleeping position. Safe for use during nap time and nighttime—and when mom's arms need a break—the DayDreamer adheres to all proposed federal laws and features both a waterproof seating area and a machine washable cover. ($129.99, Toys R Us)

  • Sureshop Stroller Bag

    Created by a mom who designs products for parents based on her own experiences, this lightweight reusable bag hangs on the back of a stroller and is also clipped to the front of the stroller, so it allows up to 10 pounds of weight to be redistributed, which prevents stroller tip-overs when it's empty. When she's not using her Sureshop, mom can easily fold up the bag into its self-storing pouch and toss it into her tote. ($15.95, Hatch Things)

  • Citrus Lane Subscription Box

    The expectant parents have decided to keep baby's gender a surprise, which has left you stumped as to what to select for the little bundle of joy. Citrus Lane monthly subscription boxes make ideal baby shower gifts because they feature four to five gender neutral products chosen specifically for the recipient's age and stage. Purchase a three-month subscription box and give the mom-to-be a printable gift note at her baby shower, which lets her know that the first box will arrive when baby is born. ($81, Citrus Lane)

  • American Girl Doll of the Year

    The American Girl Company has debuted a new character with an inspirational story each year since 2001, and 9-year-old Grace Thomas—an avid baker with a love of Parisian culture—is the 2015 Girl of the Year. A mom-to-be who's awaiting the arrival of a baby girl will love this beautifully crafted 18-inch doll with silky chestnut brown hair, delicate freckles and cerulean blue eyes. As the baby grows into a little girl, Grace will become her most treasured possession—one that she will share with her own future children. ($120 for doll and paperback book, American Girl)

  • Handmade Wooden State Teether

    Crafted out of non-splintering hard rock maple, this easy-to-grasp wooden teether celebrates baby's home state pride and makes for a truly personal baby shower gift. Measuring 3.75" by 3.75", the naturally antibacterial, non-allergenic and nontoxic toy is sanded smooth with no exterior finish for baby's safety. Plus, Little Sapling Toys plants a tree through Trees for the Future for every toy sold. ($12, Etsy)

  • Blue Apron Gift Subscription

    The last thing on new parents' minds is what to make for dinner, and if they don't have family nearby to deliver home-cooked meals following baby's arrival, nutritious eating might go out of the window. Purchase a one week Blue Apron subscription box that will provide the sleep-deprived parents with three gourmet meals ranging from 500 to 700 calories per serving. Download a personalized printable gift card to give at the baby shower, and schedule the notification to be sent to the recipient on the day that baby comes home. The new parents will then be able to personalize their menus online by setting dietary preferences. The farm-fresh food, pre-portioned ingredients and printed recipe cards will arrive within a few days in a refrigerated box to keep the food fresh. ($59.94 for three meals; Blue Apron)

  • The Plum Island Soap Company's The Man Can

    Baby shower gifts tend to be bestowed on mom and/or baby, but what about the dad-to-be? Following his baby's birth, the new dad will most likely stay overnight with his family, so he'll need his own bath products to keep him smelling fresh and looking clean. The Man Can comes complete with dual bottle/paint can opener, Fisherman's Scrub Soap, Spicy Shave Gel, Bay Rum Oil, Fisherman's Hand Butter and a scratchy body accessory—everything Dad could need! ($48, Plum Island Soap)
