    I loved getting a handmade baby blanket made from beautiful patchwork baby fabrics- velvets, florals, and gingham in a variety of colors. I will save it until my baby’s an adult then give it to him so he can either give it to his baby or just cherish it the way I do.

    I think the best baby shower gift to receive would be, mom essiantials, (I never had baby showers because my husband is military and we live too far away from anyone to even be able to get a baby shower :(…)
    But when I give baby shower gifts I love to give my friends a swaddle muslin blanket, some type of cloud b stuffed friend, natural baby products, diapers or wipes. And just everything new moms need!

    The best baby shower gift I received was a bounce-a-roo! It was a life saver. When I needed to clean or pick up around the house I could put my baby girl in it and she would bounce and bounce like crazy and play with the toys that were attached. She even fell asleep in it a few times but not often. I could never leave her in it long because I missed holding her so much and cuddling 🙂

    My favorite baby shower gifts are the handmade ones like the diaper cakes or personalized gifts with the kids names like blankets or outfits! They always leave the biggest impression like that family member or friend took extra time to make the gift extra special! I’m always reminded of that special person every time I look at that gift and usually will save these items in the baby’s hope chest for when they are older as a reminder of when they were so small. My favorite gift of all was a personalized piggy bank for my daughter since I used to work as a bank teller! It was practical, cute and so thoughtful considering my field of work. I would love to win this Cloudb gift basket of goodies for our sweet son Carsen who is now 8 weeks old!! Thanks for the chance to win! Carrie

    Best baby shower gift was a basket full of post pregnancy must haves! Pads, rubbing alcohol, hand sanitizer, tucks wipes, a&d ointment, breast pads, lanolin, stuff to make me feel beautiful again such as lip gloss and body lotions, sprays and washes. Movie passes for a date night away from babe! All stuff I received in one basket. This was nice because it’s last minute necessities that can add up financially and most forget about mom!

    The best baby shower gift, or any gift for a baby, is diapers and wipes…they are an essential item and costs so much. Otherwise it would be a Moby wrap!

    The best baby shower gift I could think of (besides the mamaroo that I’m pining over!) Is a quality carrier. I have my eye set on a Lillebaby and I want one SO bad.

    I loved receiving a wipes warmer. A friend swore by them and got me one. My newborn stopped crying during diaper changes as soon as I actually started using it! It was so nice especially for those midnight diaper changes! I like giving those as a gift and PinXav diaper cream. It was the only stuff that worked for a very bad diaper rash my son had while teething. It’s the only stuff I use now. It’s awesome!

    The best baby shower gift I received was a hand made quilt. The sentimental value was very high and I appreciated all of the hours of work that went into it. It was also much larger than the average baby blanket, so my toddler still uses it.

    The best baby shower gift I’ve ever received was my baby’s sleepy buddy. Every child of mine really, has gotten a special bed time buddy that they associate with sleep. No matter where they are, once that Buddy is with them they know it’s bed time.

    The best gift I ever received was more sentimental than useful. I had a stuffed lamb as a baby and when I was pregnant with my oldest daughter, my Grammy bought me one for her that was just like the one I had as a baby!

    The best baby shower gift was my first baby shower! I’ve never had one ever before, I was having my fourth child and I was surprised by the ladies at my church. It was a beautiful experience and I was greatful for just being together with them and the spotlight on my growing baby. All the gift were just a plus, the shower alone was the best gift ever! #Greatful #Surprised

    The best baby shower gift ever would be a month (or more) of meals 🙂 Never got it but the few meals my family and friends brought me after the births of a few of my babies were life savers

    My favorite baby shower gift were gift cards and cash… it may sound bratty but babies need more stuff as they grow and things you don’t even know they will need until months in – it great to have help with that! Plus, less to haul home.
