These days, many parents want to know the sex of the baby before he or she arrives. But, there are those who are waiting to find out if they are having a boy or girl at a gender reveal party in front of friends and family.
The issue, though, with waiting to find out the gender of the baby is that the shopping frenzy either has to be put on hold or you have to find gender neutral items. Fortunately, this is much easier to these days with so many great baby products online being designed in modern colours and aimed at being gender friendly.
Overall, buying a baby shower gift really depends on how much you are prepared to spend and how well you know the person.
Whether you’re a pregnant mother holding and need a gender neutral baby registry, or you have been invited to a gender neutral baby shower, here are a few great gift suggestions.
Gender Neutral Baby Shower Gift Ideas
- Real Baby Food Recipes
We all know that new mothers are going to log countless hours feeding their babies. A baby food cook book is a fantastic idea. Usually, they are packed chock full of easy to make, nutritious, and delicious recipes that are good for the entire family.
- Baby Lullabies
Rockabye Baby Lullaby Renditions of Maroon 5 are just the soothing rock tunes a baby needs to send him or her off into sleep-land. They also work well for soothing background noise if your aim is to drown out crying!
- A Cotton Lovey
Lovies have become popular with moms and babies alike. It really doesn’t get much cuter or more comforting that a super-sweet lovey. Typically, the comforting inventions are machine washable, made from 100% cotton muslin, and are always a baby’s favourite thing to snuggle up to.
- Gift Baskets
You really cannot go wrong with gender neutral gift baskets filled with all the things mom and dad are going to need for baby, like nappies, toiletries, and wipes. If you want a basket that is a little more exciting, you could include items such as a blankie, a rattle, a plushed stuff animal, and even a door hanger that alerts other people that the baby is sleeping. Wrap it all up in a cute little theme!
- Drool Bibs
Unisex bandana drool bibs are a fantastic way to keep the baby’s clothes free from milk and drool that we all know will inevitably drop from his or her mouth. Choose soft bibs made from 100% organic cotton and absorbent fleece, and ones with easy snaps so mom can quickly and effortlessly adjust the size.
Whether it’s a giraffe, a monkey, or some other cute character, you cannot go wrong with 100% natural rubber teethers. They’re great for keeping babies busy, and introduced them to different textures that help with different stages of teething.
These are just some options for gender neutral baby gifts. Keep the colours neutral, too, or even ask mom and dad what they really need!
