So The Hip & Urban Girl's Guide has put together a list of 'Easy Baby Shower Gifts' that you can default upon for the next big showering.
The Bumbo - Quite possibly the most popular baby registry item of all time. This crazy looking plastic chair lets the baby sit up by itself. You can even buy a tray that goes on top of the bumbo for easy snack time. Yes, it looks ridiculous and will cost you $60 - but the darn thing works.
Kiehl's Baby Products - Luxurious and a splurge for Mommy. A line of designer baby products that they may not buy for themselves, but a great gift to receive. Check out their baby body cream, lip balm, hair wash and diaper ointment.
Diaper & Wipes Pod by JJ Cole - Definitely the coolest line of diaper swag that we have ever seen. Designer change pad and a little purse pod that holds baby wipes. The 'attach anywhere' handle can hook on easily to a stroller or diaper bag.Baby Board Books - Scope out Amazon and check out the top ten baby board books online and proceed to order. A lot of showers I have attended have involved a lot of toys and clothing, but not always a lot of books. Start baby's book collection for them...
Baby Einstein DVDs - Super easy to pick-up anywhere these days. You can find them at Wal-Mart, HMV and Amazon. I think Baby Mozart is one of the more popular titles, but again - you can check the sales ranking on Amazon to see what everyone else is buying. Pretty much the DVD provides fun, stimulating images with music that babies can watch. I heard it can make them stop crying :)
Don't forget to check out the baby registry first to see if there's anything left. Worst-case scenario, tape the gift receipt onto the gift and let the recipient decide. Enjoy the egg salad sandwiches!
