    Default Baby shower gift ideas

    My friends currently organizing my baby shower. She is going to put a list of gift ideas with the invitation. Any ideas what to put on there?

    I have nappies, wipes, toiletries, nappy bags, wraps, clothes, books, bath toys, blankets

    Providing a list is a good idea, but just be aware you could get heaps of double or triple ups on those items listed!

    Default Baby shower gift ideas

    Bibs, pram toys, play mat, towels, singlets

    To avoid double ups, my friend put a couple of items on a post it, so everyone had different items on the post it with the invite.

    I received for my baby shower which I really appreciated was a bumbo seat, a portable high chair that straps to a chair (this was so helpful especially going to friends/family for a meal) photo frames and plate sets. Plus clothes for when they were older as I received heaps of 00000 & 0000 and she didn't get full wear out of everything. But I do agree on toiletries but I got so much baby oil I don't know what to do with it all

    I got a lot of toiletries and couldn't use them because DS would react to Johnsons.

    I appreciated the toiletries for myself though, e.g. lansinoh, breast pads etc.
