    1. A blooming bath lotus that looks like a cute flower, but actually turns a sink into a soft and comfortable place for a bath.

    Recommended for babies 0 to 6 months. Machine-washable on delicate.

    Promising review: "This item should be a must for all baby registries. This is our sixth child, and we have done everything from the infant tub to the net lounge seat, and this is by far the most amazing bathing item. Our son gets in it and instantly relaxes. It is so soft he just sinks into it. We can use it in the smallest sink in our bathroom to the biggest sink in our kitchen! It's absolutely the best purchase!!!"—Stephanie

    Price: $39.99+ (available in nine colors)

    2. A prompting letter book to help parents write down their feelings to share with their child one day. (Tissues sold separately.)

    The book includes 12 fold-and-mail letters.

    Promising review: "So cute! I write these letters when I feel compelled, and I hope my baby will appreciate them when she's older. The stationery is cute, and the stickers are adorable. I highly recommend it!" —gemmalee

    Price: $10.08

    3. A sleep sack to turn a baby into the cutest little mermaid there ever was.

    Promising review: "Who does not want to be a mermaid? I mean helllllllooooo! And is it not our jobs as parents to live vicariously through our children's infancy and dress them up in the funnest, goofy things we can find? If your answer was no, move along, there is no place here for you, but for all of you incredibly fun parents this mermaid sleep sack is for you! Buy it, you will like it." —Boonee

    Price: $13.29 (available in sizes small and medium and in four colors)

    4. A shusher or "miracle machine" that help parents get the one thing they always need more of: SLEEP.[]st[p]cj02l5fvh00punoy6crlguuf0[i]JvBIsn[z]m[d]D[r]

    Promising review: "When I first saw this shusher I thought — that is silly, paying that much for a little Shhhhh. Now that I have used it, this is now my go-to baby gift. It truly is magic for my son. If he is crying or having difficulty going to sleep, we turn this on, and he is soothed in less than a minute. I like that it runs for a little bit and then shuts itself off. You can also adjust the volume to the environment. We have dropped it a dozen times, and it has taken some abuse, but it still works great. In 10 months, we have replaced the batteries once so far. If you are willing to try it, I don't think you will regret it." —csm

    Price: $34.99

    5. A bottle drying rack that may look confusing, but it's actually a very practical thing that allows up to eight bottles to dry completely.

    Promising review: "I love this drying rack! It’s a great size for limited counter space, and it’s easy to clean! It can also be repurposed for your normal kitchen stuff as your baby grows out of bottles! It's a great quality, and I would recommend to all of my parent friends. :)" —Amy

    Price: $19.99

    6. A memory book so parents can write down and remember all the important things that happen in the first year.

    It's made in the USA with eco-friendly, soy-based inks and includes 48 pages with different prompts.

    Promising review: "This is the cutest baby book ever! I will definitely buy again for a baby shower gift for a friend. It's simple and easy to fill out. Plus, I love that it had a section to write a note to your baby before he/she arrives. I would have never thought of that." —Jess

    Price: $34.99 (also available in Little Animal Lover, Little Captain, and Little Love versions)

    7. A pair of muffs you attach to a stroller to keep your hands covered and protected from cold weather.

    The muffs are wind and water-resistant and can be worn in up to -4°F.

    Promising review: "I LOVE these. I can't believe I waited so long to get these warmers. These have been a lifesaver the past few weeks in the Northeast. (It's been freezing!) I have talked to other moms, and everyone swears by these. I would say these are a must-buy for any moms that are out and about in the cold!" —Kirsten C

    Price: $39 (available in one size and in 10 colors)

    8. A pair of adorable baby moccasins that will have everyone at the shower saying "Awwwwwwww."

    Promising review: "Love love LOVE these moccasins on my little guy. They are so easy to put on his chubby little feet because of the elastic at the top. He has also been able to wear them for a long time as they fit well even when they were a bit big. They keep his feet toasty without socks. They seem to be great quality and very comfortable for him. I would 100% buy these again!" —KatieFL

    Price: $9.99 (available in sizes 0-6 months, 6-12 months, and 12-18 months and in 22 colors)

    9. Or a baby wrap you can wear multiple ways to keep baby close to your chest.

    The wrap is made of a blend of French terry cotton and spandex.

    Promising review: " I love this baby wrap. It is affordable, and it gets the job done. The fabric isn't too hot and baby is secure if wrapped correctly. There are instructional videos on YouTube and the wrap comes with an instructional pamphlet, which makes it easy to learn how to wrap your baby. I have seen other brands that are over $100 for the same thing." —Eva G.

    Price: $37.95 (available in eight colors)

    10. A book that proves it's never too early to prepare for a career as a rocket scientist!

    Promising review: "This was an excellent baby shower gift to give my future nephew! My brother and sister-in-law loved it! It's never too early to prepare him for his engineering degree! They received the rest of the book collection from friends, and they love them! Excellent buy!" —BookButter

    Price: $5

    11. A bouncer to keep baby out of the club...or actually calm and entertained while parents make dinner or clean the house.

    The bouncer is for newborns to up to 40 lbs and has an 80-hour battery life.

    Promising review: "My baby is in this every day. She is comfortable and secure. It's more upright than some, but for my use (set on the kitchen counter while I clean/make meals/bake) it's perfect! We have detached the toy bar after two months and are just giving her toys to play with while she sits. It's been left on in vibrate mode numerous times, and we have yet to replace the batteries. I'm very pleased with this purchase!" —Leslie

    Price: $38.95 (available in two designs)

    12. A set of reusable travel bags to stash diapers, damp clothes, and other miscellaneous baby items.

    Comes with a large and small bag that are machine-washable and water-resistant.

    Promising review: "I wanted small wet bags to use for various baby things — a few diapers, wet/dirty outfits, swim gear, and even my pump parts. These bags are my favorite, and I've already recommended them to friends. I would definitely buy again. I love the way they look, but they also feel good and have not leaked in many uses, after many washes!" —Jay Mc

    Price: $7.49+ (available in 10 designs).

    13. A super-cute necklace — oh, wait, it's actually teething beads to help baby's new chompers. (But nobody will know that.)

    It's made from chewable silicon and provides instant relief and gum massage for teething little ones.

    Promising review: "This necklace is so cute!! I ordered this for a baby shower, and the mom-to-be loved it. The necklace has an adjustable length and is an easy hand-wash in soap and water. It's so practical and pretty. I'm planning to order this again and again as my friends have babies :)" —Shellbell

    Price: $14.97 (available in four colors)

    14. A set of bath essentials because practical gifts are great too, and any new parent will use it.

    The set includes baby wash, baby lotion, a baby bar, and baby wipes.

    Promising review: "This product is absolutely amazing!!! The scent is subtle and gentle but smells so fresh!! It makes my baby's skin super soft. The Tip to Toe Wash is amazing on my child's hair. It makes it soft and feathery, and she has a lot of hair! It also leaves her skin moisturized without any dry patches. The lotion adds amazing moisture and softness without a greasy aftermath! And the wipes are so gentle on her bottom. Yes, they are built tough!!!! They work great on her face and hands as well. I recommend this!" —Ashley Mann

    Price: $14.98

    15. A set of bandana drool bibs with an attached teether for when things get a little messy.


    For babies 3-27 months old.

    Promising review: "I LOVE these bibs. I love them so much that the three-pack got old, so I just bought the six-pack. These bibs are very soft, they soak up my son's drool without leaking through to his onesie. And the little plastic teethers are perfect. Easy to clean, multifunctional, and such a good idea." —Brittany k.

    Price: $10.98+ (available in six colors)

    16. A pacifier that doubles as a stuffed animal to calm down a baby when things get a little ~wild~.

    Recommended for newborns to 6 months.

    Promising review: "My daughter LOVES her Wubbanubs. She likes to pet them while using the pacifier, and they definitely comfort her. They are easy to find compared to other pacifiers too! I wash them all the time, and they hold up really well for all the use they get. When she was younger, she had an easier time keeping them in her mouth over regular pacifiers because of the weight of the stuffed animal. I definitely recommend!" —Courtney

    Price: $13.99

    17. A diaper bag so chic, nobody will know you're carrying 25 diapers and baby clothes — and they'll probably be asking where you got it!

    The bag is made of vegan leather and features nine pockets, an adjustable strap, a stroller strap, and a machine-washable changing pad.

    Promising review: "I love, love, LOVE this bag! It is spacious and stylish. The pictures don't do it justice! It doesn't really look like a diaper bag, which is what I love the most about it. It has all of the compartments needed to make any outing with baby an absolute breeze: a bottle holder, organization pockets in the main compartment, a changing-pad pocket, and a parent pocket up front. I know... it's a little pricey, but you're worth the splurge! After all, you just made a WHOLE HUMAN! Get the bag." —Mrs. Treehugger

    Price: $79.99+ (available in five colors)

    18. A multipurpose pillow that's basically the number one product moms can't live without because it's both a great feeding pillow and a place to rest a baby.

    The machine-washable pillow is made of 90% polyester and 10% cotton and recommended for newborns to 12 months.

    Promising review: "I think this item is an essential. I couldn't live without it. I used it as a support for breastfeeding until my son gave up breastfeeding. I also used when he was a tiny little thing as a support during floor time, and my son loved it. The best part that it is durable because I'm now pregnant with my second, and I intend to use it again." —Carolina M. Passos

    Price: $29.99

    19. Or hilarious teethers that look like a cookie we all know and love, because you're never too young for a treat!

    Promising review: "YES! YES! YES! This is, by far, one of my son's favorite toys. He is 11 months old, and this will keep him busy for a good 20-30 minutes just munching on it and whirling it around. It is great on a long trip, in church, or even at home. I can pop it in the fridge or freezer and give it to him when he is teething too. I would buy this again for sure, and it will be one of my go-to toys for baby shower gifts! A++"—Chelsea

    Price: $14.97 for 2.

    20. A stuffed animal and blanket combo so cute and cozy it will be remembered forever.

    Promising review: "This was a gift for a baby shower, and the recipients just loved it. The fact that it came with a blanket and was sealed in one of those vacuum-sealed bags was just that much better. I would definitely recommend this and purchase one again." —Eileen G.

    Price: $29.99 (available in gray and yellow)

    21. A multipurpose cover that can be used as a nursing cover, car seat cover, shopping cart cover, and an infinity scarf for the ultimate Mom Boss.,

    Made of 100% cotton.

    Promising review: "This is such amazing mommy gear! It can be used for so many things such as a car seat protector or nursing scarf. It protects the baby and boobies when needed! I recommend this to all mommies out there! I love Itzy Ritzy. I bought another one for my friend as a baby shower gift, and she uses it every day and loves it as much as I do." —carla

    Price: $17+ (available in seven colors)

    22. A rattle to help babies get swole before they can even walk.

    Promising review: "I bought this as a shower gag gift, and it was an instant hit. Everyone wanted to see the package and take pictures with it. The actual rattle is pretty small, but it is for a baby, and its really more for the joke than a practical rattle. The package sells itself and is worth the price alone. You will not be disappointed in this gift if the parents are at all interested in fitness." —Bobz

    Price: $12.78 (also available in guitar shape)

    23. A pack of swaddles, a no-fail, practical gift that any new parent will need.

    The swaddles are 100% cotton.

    Promising review: "We are obsessed with these! We got a pack for my baby shower and lost two out of the three. So we have been using the same one every day. At six weeks, our baby was also growing out of that one, so we ordered another 3 pack, this time large. They are so cute, and our baby will not sleep with out being swaddled in one. These are a lifesaver for any new parents! A must have!" —Nikki G.

    Price: $25.43+ (available in three designs)

    24. A color-changing protector for a unique take on a night light, as it shows realistic aurora borealis and nebular light shows on the ceiling.

    It includes an audio cable, volume control, auto shut-off after one hour, and eight light projection modes.

    Promising review: "We bought this for our 3-month-old-daughter who loves to watch shadows and lights bounce around on the walls and ceiling. It is truly amazing. Not sure who loves it more, her or us! It's beautiful and unique. It's a way better alternative to a tradition night light or mobile."—MrsZ

    Price: $20.99

    25. And a set of milestone cards in an adorable pattern — but just be prepared to like the accompanying Insta post every month!

    Includes 24 cards (12 months, 8 moments, and 4 holidays).

    Promising review: "I bought these for my sister-in-law's new baby girl, and she absolutely loved them. The box makes it the best gift! The colors and design are amazing and the shiny metallic gold really makes the stickers. I highly recommended!!!"—Stephen Vincent

    Price: $11.99
