New mommies need all the help they can get. They have so much to worry about, from feeding the baby to looking after him. And that’s not even including all the other responsibilities that come with being a new parent. Giving birth is exhausting and taxing on the body, which means that these mamas probably won’t be thinking about what kind of gift basket you put together for them (or any other thought-up gift you might give them).

Because let’s face it: They just want someone to bring over some food! If you’re throwing a baby shower for a pregnant friend or family member, read on for some ideas on what gifts they would most appreciate getting.

1. A Diaper Bag With Everything They Might Need

For a lot of new moms, a diaper bag is an essential piece of gear for their baby. It’s where they store all the various items that they need for their child on any given day, from diapers to formula. A diaper bag can also be used as a travel bag when a mom needs to go out and about and take the baby with her. Baby shower diaper bags can come in all kinds of styles and kinds. You can choose a bag already stocked with the essentials a new mom would need: diapers, wipes, formula, bottles, and so on.

2. Baby Crib and mattress

Every parent needs a baby crib for their newborn baby so you can’t go wrong with purchasing one as a baby shower gift. Buying a crib can bring a big financial strain on the mom-to-be. If the mom-to-be is looking for a crib but doesn’t want to spend a ton of money on it, you can help her out by giving her a gift card to a baby store. Zawadi baby shop store sells everything that a new parent would need for their brand-new bundle of joy. That includes cribs and mattresses, of course, but also clothing, diapers, and so on. If you don’t know what kind of crib the expecting mom likes, a gift card is a perfect solution.

3. Newborn feeding set

Newborns are at their most vulnerable when they’re 1 to 6 months old. They have to eat every two hours, leaving new parents little time to sleep. Giving the expecting mom a newborn feeding set is a thoughtful and practical gift. You can pick and choose the feeding set that best suits the mom’s taste and needs. Baby feeding sets come with various pieces that include, 4 feeding bottles, 2 bottle brushes, a pacifier, a soft spoon, a toothbrush, and spouts that are useful for newborns and infants. The feeding bottles are equipped with all weaning essentials.

We find the newborn feeding set a terrific baby shower gift because of the following benefits:

  • Easy to clean. The bottle only has 2 parts and incorporates an ultra-wide design. You don’t need a brush to clean the bottle.
  • Wide and shaped like a nipple. This design makes it easy for a baby to transition between a breast and a bottle.
  • Truflo anti-colic system. The bottle has a built-in system that ensures that a baby swallows milk and not air.
  • BPA-free.

4. Baby shawls and blankets

Newborns need a lot of warmth and protection from germs and bacteria, especially the first six to eight months after they are born. A new mom might not know where to start when it comes to swaddling and covering her baby, so a baby shawl or wrap is a great gift to give her. Baby wraps and shawls offer a lot of protection and warmth for infants.

They are also easy to use and provide a bit of privacy and modesty for the baby, who is often undressed when being swaddled. Wraps and shawls are also typically very colorful and cute, which makes them a great gift. Baby wraps and shawls are great baby shower gifts because they are so useful and long-lasting, especially if you get one that is made of fleece. They are also very affordable gifts and can be found at our baby shop.

5. Infant rocker

An infant rocker can be a godsend for a new mom, especially a fussy newborn. Newborns don’t have the motor skills to be rocked in a car seat or a regular rocking chair; they need something that is specifically designed for them. Baby rockers are a great gift for any new mom. They can be used for a newborn, a baby, or a toddler on up.

They are designed to soothe and calm fussy babies, which can be an amazing gift for a new parent. Baby rockers are often much more stylish than they used to be. They come in all shapes, sizes, and colors. Visit our site and you can order one at an affordable price in the comfort of your home, and we will deliver it to your doorstep in less than 6 hours.

6. Gift card

Finally, if you have no idea what to get as a baby shower gift, you can never go wrong with giving a gift card. The expecting mom can use a thoughtful, useful gift card to purchase whatever she wants. If you are close with the expecting mom and know what she’d like to have, you can always get her a gift card to her favorite store, her favorite restaurant, or even her favorite bakery if she has pregnancy cravings for sweet baked treats.

You can also get her a gift card to a store that sells baby-related items, like Zawadi Baby Shop. If you are less familiar with the expecting mom, a gift card is a great way to be helpful, yet let her choose what she wants.


Whether you’re throwing a baby shower for your friend or yourself, there are many different gift baskets to choose from. You can opt to buy a traditional gift basket, or you can choose a themed gift basket. No matter what kind of gift basket you select, it’s sure to be appreciated by the mom-to-be. Choosing the right gift basket for the expecting mom can be both fun and challenging. To make the process easier, you can ask the mom-to-be what kind of gift basket she would like. Once you have a few gift basket ideas, you can start to narrow down your choices based on your budget and the amount of time you have to put the basket together.
