Anyone can grab a cute blanket, something soft and cozy or select off a registry, but if you really want to wow at the next baby shower you need to be a little more unique! Below I have created a list of some special type of baby shower gifts that are typically given, but with a Wee Teething twist. The Top 10 Baby Shower Gifts:
The perfect gift. Baby’s first blocks. Every baby needs blocks. These have nice rounded edges and are made of sustainable wood that is dyed, NOT PAINTED, with 100% safe colors. These take blocks to a-whole-nother level! Besides being natural, they are super cute and perfect size for little ones to handle, mouth and chew. Plus wood stuff is totally “in” right now (read more about that here).
Once again, we are taking a staple and cranking it up a notch. This ADORABLE puppy mat gives baby a safe place to play while providing a little extra cushion. It also features “tags” sewn around the edge for baby to touch, chew and suck. Not only are the “tags” developmentally awesome, the smooth texture feels great for sore gums! And I cannot emphasize enough how cute the little dog face is. I would highly recommend checking out the whole line of Taggies products, they have some great stuff!
Every baby needs a friend! This pack comes with a snuggle blanket, soft rattle and cute stuffed animal to cuddle. All of them are made from organic cotton and they offer a few different animal types (I am partial to the fox one). The blanket has knotted ends which give baby something harder to chew on if their gums are hurting, but really they are going to put it all in their mouth and why not? With this quality of product and organic cotton, they might as well!
I have mentioned a few times that wooden toys are trendy, and so much of that has to do with nostalgia. Well, this gift set is a whole bucket of nostalgia for you to give. It comes with mini, soft silicone or plush versions of classic Fisher Price toys we all grew up with. I bought this set when it was released for my daughter and they are some of her favorite toys. The set comes with a crinkly Camera, a popper rattle, a puppy rattle/teether, a horse chime ball, a ring stacker clacker and an apple teether. My only complaint is that the toys are a little heavy so I would just recommend maybe waiting to give it to a slightly older baby, say 6 months ish.
Awwww! Th quintessential barbell rattle! What’s great about this one is that it has a crochet cover over it so that it is perfect for baby to chew on! It allows you to give baby the classic rattle gift while providing additional functionality. I LOVE dual-purpose items. All of Green Sprouts products are organic and safe for baby so you can rest assured this gift is a great option.
Add this item to the list for multi-function. It will last the baby YEARS!!! First off, it’s made from organic cotton, 100% baby safe food grade materials and sustainable wood. If that wasn’t enough it can be used as a play gym for baby while on his back, a tummy time mat, a sit up play gym and converts to a tent/play fort. It also includes removable accessories perfect for baby to handle and mouth and a parent’s learning guide to help you and baby get the most out of the gym. Seriously, the only thing this mat won’t do for you is lactate.
Keeping on the multi-purpose and organic train, check out this amazing meal time gift set! It comes with everything you need for meal time. All made from bamboo and bpa-free, non-toxic silicone. The best part about this set is the spoons, because if your kids are anything like mine they will inevitably end up attempting to eat their silverware. These spoons are bamboo covered in silicone which gives both the hard texture and soft chewing texture which is the perfect mix for teething baby!
Dial up the cuteness factor, this set is so freaking adorable. It comes with three bibdanas, perfect for your extra drooly baby, and two pairs of coordinating socks. It comes in a few color combos but the cowboy set is by far the cutest. Hudson Baby is a great brand that creates high quality products so you cannot go wrong here!
I love love love silicone beads for teething, so finding a product that is super thoughtful, very special and unique AND beautifully crafted of silicone beads checks off all the boxes. If you are buying for a religious family this rosary could not be more perfect. It is basically a teething necklace made with a cross. It is such a fun and functional way to introduce the rosary tradition to baby. Bonus: it also makes a phenomenal christening present!
My list would not be complete without a special gift for mom to be. Teething necklaces are so multi-functional that they are often my go-to for shower gifts. They offer baby something to handle, gum and chew while making mom feel special and beautiful. This one takes the cake. It is a sterling silver ring with rattle inside on a sterling silver, safety tested, chain. Perfect for casual or even formal events!
Honorable Mention: The Boppy Teething Scarf
