Selecting a baby shower gift for a soon-to-be mom can be as challenging as it is fun. It’s always a safe bet to stick to mom’s gift registry if she’s created one, but coming up with your own new baby gifts is usually a welcome surprise!
Mom’s likely to get a whole closet full of baby clothes at her shower, so why not get her products that will help her care for those clothes while she’s preparing for baby’s arrival? A gift basket of useful items is a great gift for expecting moms.
Dreft Stage 1: Newborn baby laundry detergent is the perfect, shower-appropriate detergent for her. Dreft Newborn is a hypoallergenic detergent, and it’s the #1 choice of pediatricians. It’s specially formulated to be gentle on baby’s skin, but it’s tough on stains (and we know there are lots of those in mom’s future!).
Baby gifts often focus on the newborn, but they don’t have to! Consider thinking down the road to when baby starts to eat solid foods and arrives at the crawling stage. Dreft Stage 2: Active Baby helps remove 99% of baby food stains and is specially formulated to help get out grass and crawling stains too. You might also want to add a bottle of Dreft Blissfuls In-Wash Scent Booster to your basket. Mom can add these scented beads to any load of laundry for more of that one-of-a-kind, baby smell she’ll grow to love.
You can fill up the rest of her baby shower basket gift with additional useful items, too. Diapers like Pampers or Luvs always go over well with a new mom. When in doubt, buy the larger size; they’ll fit soon enough. Baby wipes are also a great choice, as are baby oil and baby shampoo.
The best baby shower gifts are the ones mom will actually use. With all those new clothes to pre-wash and loads of messes in the near future, mom will definitely appreciate all the Dreft she can get.
