Baby Shower Gifts: Frequently Asked Questions

Here, we've compiled a list of frequently asked questions to help guide your decision-making process and ensure you find just the right baby shower gift.

What Age Group Are Baby Gifts For?

Most gifts at Lambs & Ivy are designed with newborns in mind, such as hooded towels. However, there are also items intended to delight and comfort babies well into toddlerhood, like baby blankets, which often become cherished "loveys." Some products are aimed at older babies and toddlers, so checking product descriptions for age appropriateness is recommended.

Do Decorative Items Make Good Baby Shower Gifts?

Absolutely! Nursery décor items, including baby mobiles, lamps and other room accessories, can make wonderful gifts. However, it's important to ensure that these items match the nursery's theme and that you're the only one gifting that particular item.

What Is a Wearable Blanket?

Wearable blankets, recommended for babies aged 6-12 months, are designed for safety and ease of use. They feature a zipper down the front for convenient diaper changes. The American Academy of Pediatrics endorses wearable blankets for safe sleep, making them an excellent gift choice.

How to Choose Newborn Gifts

Selecting the perfect newborn gifts can be a delightful yet daunting task. You want your present to be meaningful and useful, bringing joy to babies and parents alike. Here are some tips to help you pick out a gift that stands out:

  • Match the Theme of the Nursery: If you know the theme or color scheme of the baby's nursery, choose a baby shower gift that complements it. Whether it's ocean creatures, forest friends or classic storybook characters, a themed gift adds a personal touch that parents will appreciate.
  • Combine Function with Fun: Pair a practical item, like crib sheets or a changing mat, with something fun and playful, like a plush toy or a musical mobile. This way, you provide something necessary and something delightful in one thoughtful package.
  • Consider the Parents' Lifestyle: Think about the parents' daily routine and lifestyle. Active, on-the-go parents might appreciate compact and portable items. Those who love eco-friendly products might prefer organic crib sheets.
  • Keep it Simple: Our baby gift sets are a quick and easy way to welcome your favorite new arrival. Each is specially themed and positively irresistible.
