2017 is finally here, which means our new niece will be here soon – she is due to be here at the end of February 2017 and I’m pumped!
I love to get people unique gifts that tend to be out of the box or stuff you don’t know you need until you need it. I set a budget for the baby shower gifts, but then I was able to get a ton of these gifts at a discount so I had money left in the budget…naturally, I bought even more stuff :o)
In preparing for her baby shower, I thought it might be fun to post everything that I bought, just in case you also have an upcoming baby shower that you might need some unique gift ideas for.
Here’s the fun gifts I got for my sister-in-law and new baby niece:
I’m going to use these adorable onesies and socks to create a little cupcake box gift like this one:
These were on sale for Buy One Get One Free with the above 5-pack bodysuits! GREAT deal @ Babies R Us!!
COME ON!! This is the most adorable bear suit, EVER! It is so incredibly soft and it will look adorable in pictures! She is due to be born mid-Winter so this should be perfect to keep her warm on those cold, New England Winter days!
Love You Nightlight $15.99
ADORABLE Nightlight, this will be such a great addition to her nursery!
My Aunt & Uncle Love Me Bib $10.99
I know this bib is quite simple, but I thought it was cute and a nice little gift to show how excited we are to have a new niece!
MeasuPro Room Thermometer $19.99
We all know you can set your thermostat at a certain temperature, but each room can actually be a different temperature. I thought this room temperature egg would be great to help simplify their lives. I love the color-changing effect, that way they can just walk by the room and easily check to see if the room is a comfy temperature for their new baby! At $20, you can’t beat it!
These are great to soothe your teething baby’s sore gums! My other nieces and nephew love these to soothe their gums, but love to suck the juice out of fruit, so they can get natural fruit juice. They also have mesh teether pacifiers, but those can be quite tricky to clean, especially strawberry seeds that get stuck in the mesh. $10 for a 2-pack is a great deal! Mine even came with a free pacifier clip!! SCORE!
I’m going to use these socks with the onesies for the cupcake box!
This cup is great because the weighted straw helps to always keep the straw inside the juice when the baby/toddler tips the cup so they’re always actually getting juice/water and not just sucking up air, getting frustrated! It’s a nifty little cup!
As a new mom, it can be very nerve-wracking to know what is safe for your new baby and I think these are a great way to help ease that nervousness. The colored rubber part of the spoon turns white if the baby’s food is too hot. What a great idea for new parents!
Again, knowing what is safe for your baby is nerve-wracking, but this bath thermometer should help with that! I love that this bath thermometer re-checks the temperature every 10 seconds!! It also has a neat little light to indicate if the water is too hot or too cold – AWESOME.
Itzbeen Pocket Nanny $24.99
This nifty little device seems like such a great idea for new parents!! It keeps track of EVERYTHING that you need to track for your newborn, right down to diaper changes, naps, feedings, and even which breast you last fed from! Incredible find!! I hope this helps to make their life as new parents a little easier.
I got these at a deep discount, but I think they are absolutely adorable! There are four in the pack, but they are reversible, so it’s like getting eight. My sister-in-law is pretty fashionable and is always on top of the latest trends, so I think she will really love these bandana bibs!
We all know the cardinal rule – NEVER wake a sleeping baby…EVER! This little cushion easily slides between the door jam so you can close the door nice and quietly. You’ll never have the possibility of waking your baby by slamming a door again!
These keepsake calendars are great, they come with cute little stickers so you can track your baby’s first year. You can track their first smile, first giggle, when they started crawling and walking, etc. What a good idea for new parents, and they also come in handy if you ever decide to have more than one child – that way you can compare them to see where each child was at each stage of their first year!
I’m pretty pleased with all of these gifts for the baby shower; I think they’re pretty unique, some expected, but others unexpected and I think they’ll be pretty happy with them. Here’s to hoping!
I also filmed a video where you can see all of these giftie goodies:
