Budget Baby Shower Gifts Any New Mom Would Love

Budget Baby Shower Gifts Any New Mom Would Love

2022 has marked the year when wedding save the dates have turned into baby shower invitations in our friend circle. It is so exciting to have a group of girls to walk through the transition to motherhood with, but with so many babies, the price of gifts really can add up! I’ve wrangled a few of my favorite baby gifts that show you care, without breaking the budget. 


First are a few gifts that I received for my own baby shower that I absolutely loved and are budget friendly.



Shop the clearance rack: Take a peek at what baby clothes are on sale currently. Do a little math to figure out how old the baby will be when that season rolls around again, and buy some clothes for the baby in a larger size. I was gifted so many newborn clothes, getting some clothes for when Baby G gets bigger was so appreciated!




Pacifier clips: I underestimated how easily pacifiers go missing. Grab some cute and inexpensive pacifier clips and a pack or two of pacifiers for an incredibly useful gift. 






Books: It will be awhile before Baby G will be requesting bedtime stories, but books remain one of my favorite gifts. Pick out a favorite book or two for the baby. You can make it extra special by writing the baby note on the inside cover.



Milestone cards: Every baby needs a set of cute milestone cards for pictures. Consider pairing these with a personalized blanket for a perfect gift.


I am also a big fan of putting a few inexpensive items together for a themed gift. Here are a few examples!


  • Grab some baby shampoo, lotion and a hooded towel for a cute bath time themed gift set. 


  • Use a beach bucket to hold a swimsuit, sunglasses, hooded beach towel and a bottle of baby-safe sunscreen for that baby’s first summer trip!
