Great Baby Shower Gifts for Planning Ahead

Although it can be very fun to get items for your itti bitti baby at your baby shower, I have found that it is also very nice to get some things that your baby can grow into. I love to give outfits in larger sizes, sippy cups, and toys for young toddlers because I know that they too will be put to good use.



My favorite sippy cups to give are from Tommee Tippee. Their Truly Spill Proof Cups are an amazing addition for any baby shower gift list. They have various styles for children of different ages but they all have the same unique valves in them that really are spill proof! In fact, I regularly have one of these cups of water in my diaper bag and I don't have to worry which direction it's pointing because I know it won't spill. As a bonus, our cups are on kids #3 & 4 and still work great. Here's to a long lasting spill proof friendship!


For toys, some of my very favorites come from Green Toys. They have a great selection for kids of all ages. The majority of their toys are classics made from recycled materials which means that they also make great gifts. My kids have a few of the toys and they have proven to be sturdy and kid friendly (I know, it seems like those should be givens when we talk about toys but they aren't). My kids' current favorite is the Dish Set that is the perfect size for my toddlers to play together.

  6. Hi! I usually buy a box of diapers and wipes. Boring. I know but they're expensive and, hopefully, it'll cut down on runs to the store early on. Thank-you for the review!
