Baby Shower Gift Ideas Any Soon-to-be Mom Will Love

Baby shower gift ideas can be really tough to come up with. Often, we’ve purchased completely overpriced but adorable onesies that serve the parents for a brief 3 months before the baby has outgrown it. It seems like a great idea at first to spend $30 on a funny onesie but it may not be very helpful for new parents who could have used that bottle cleaning kit a lot more! 

With that in mind, we’ve provided a list of practical, adorable, and popular baby registry items to help you make your decision on the best baby shower gift to give your friends.
