There are a few items one has to think about when looking for a baby shower gift. First, if the mother-to-be is registered at a retailer then your trouble is solved, because you can just choose from the selected list. If not, then thinking about what your budget is, and the you could purchase the usual clothes people do for babies, be it onesies or tiny booties or washcloths which will constantly be useful, no matter what the size. Other gifts could be diapers, bath supplies like tubs, soaps and shampoos, toiletries like lotions and oils, even medical supplies like a thermometer or Advil, or toys are at all times welcome!
The easiest and possibly not the most considerate would be a gift certificate from a baby shop, only to be provided if totally clueless. Once you are settled on a budget and on how much time you have to shop, then the gift purchase is that much easier. If you do not have much to spend then one could buy a single gift or if a greater and fixed budget and with a paucity of time, then the one gift which would prove to be universally accepted would be a baby basket.
A baby gift basket could be bought on the web at a site like http://www.basketpizzazz.com/baby-gifts/baby-baskets.html, or could be assembled by oneself, the latter being easier to eliminate the items one doesn’t want in the assortment. The items in the tub could be a collection of a few details previously stated or based on a certain theme. One could arrange the gifts based on the typical baby genders of blue or pink or select something neutral like orange and reds. Gender themes are also very common, with unique toys boys might enjoy or girls, or themes could be followed based on whether it could be clothes, toiletries or medical supplies.
Whatever your gift , with the right amount of imagination and packaging, the to-be-parents will be grateful!
