Boy or girl? Blue or pink? We’ve all been there.
You need a baby shower gift but you don’t know the baby’s gender. What do you do?
You can ask the mama. Some mamas-to-be get sick of this question real fast. Many parents choose not to learn the sex of their babe before birth. There aren’t a lot of surprises left in the world, so why not enjoy this one.
Did mama already tell you the gender, but you can’t remember? This happens to us all, don’t stress.
Or maybe the parents have chosen not to reveal their babe’s gender. The social concept of gender is changing rapidly. Many no longer see gender as binary.
Whatever the reason, you’re shopping for a baby and need a gender-neutral gift. Here are some awesome options. Don’t settle for yellow ducks. There are plenty of adorable gender-neutral baby gifts out there.
Every mama will tell you, you can never have too many swaddle blankets. Make mama’s life easier by gifting her a few swaddles. She’ll always have one within arm’s reach. If you don’t know the babe’s gender, go for a neutral color like white or grey. A cute unisex print like this sweet Stars and Moons Swaddle would be a hit too.
Teethers make a great baby shower gift. Most are gender-neutral and so cute! Babies start teething around 6 months, so chances are a new mama won’t already have too many teethers. We love this bunny crinkle teether. It’s soft and easy to clean. And it’s sweet crinkle sound is guaranteed to make little ones smile.
Do you remember some of your favorite children’s books? Great books teach children about life and help shape their views of the world. A cool baby shower gift idea is to package some of your favorite books together. You can even write a sweet inscription on the first pages. Children’s books aren’t going out of style anytime soon. Even if the little one is too young for them right now, mama will appreciate the sweet gift.
Pacifier & Pacifier Clip
Ah, the pacifier. A not so glamorous but total baby necessity. Love them or hate them, chances are good new mamas will find this baby gift very useful. For a cute custom baby gift, give mama a few matching pacifiers and pacifier clips. She’ll appreciate having multiples every time her babe starts to fuss.
“I have too many diapers” — said no one. Ever.
Why are diapers so expensive? The world may never know. Be a hero to new parents by gifting them an obnoxious amount of diapers. Make a diaper cake and bring them a big ol’ pile of diapers. Or consider gifting a diaper subscription service. Save new parents from those late-night diaper runs.
When shopping for a baby onesie you don’t have to decide between butterflies and fire trucks. There are tons of gender-neutral bodysuits available. Gift a sassy onesie. That babe will be able to voice their opinion long before they start to talk. We love this “You Had Me at Tacos” bodysuit. Perfect for a mama who loves guac!
A stuffed animal that’s been famous for decades. Or a wooden rocker that never goes out of style. Gender-neutral toys are usually the best looking ones with a classic design. Leave the pink princesses and blue sharks on the shelf and pick up a grey elephant instead. Toys in neutral shades will look awesome in any nursery color scheme.
You can’t go wrong with a gender-neutral baby gift. Don’t wait until the mama reveals her baby-to-be’s gender, start shopping now!
