While our compression socks are amazing, they’re not exactly a great gift for a new baby! They are, however, great baby shower gift ideas when it’s a gift for the mom-to-be! So let’s make sure you’re all set for the new bundle of joy – and let’s get you some great gift ideas for any and all budgets.
Baby Shower Gift Ideas for the Guest of Honor: the baby
Okay, so baby gifts are super popular. There’s a ton of ideas everywhere. But some of my favorite baby gifts were the handmade ones – ones that came extra soft, extra cuddly, and full of love. So here’s a link to a whole bundle of DIY baby shower gift ideas and patterns.

And if you aren’t a sewer? Get a pack of white onesies. You can never have enough of those, I swear!
Gift Ideas for the Mom-to-be
Okay, so I know that the baby shower is technically to celebrate the baby… but I assure you mom will appreciate being thought of! And as baby makes his or her appearance, mom will love being pampered by whatever gifts she’s given. And here’s a variety of gift ideas for new moms, moms with kids, stressed moms, and moms who have a c-section. Because, having a baby is plenty hard. Having a c-section, too… that’s just rough, y’all. Let’s be sure to send that mom a gift basket, a nap, and lots of chocolate!

Let’s Not Forget Dad: Gift Ideas for Him
For our seventh gift idea, let’s make sure dad isn’t left out. And this one, well, it made me giggle. Because while it’s probably a stereotype, it’s sure seemed to be a true one! My husband always uses our kids as weights – and they love it. And while the book is labeled as “for dads”, I’m sure moms could use the exercises in it, too.
