A good baby shower gift can be one which helps out a mom-to-be in some obvious way, like diapers or baby clothes. Most first-time parents don't really have any idea just how much they're going to need, so the basic necessities are never a bad idea. But if you want to get a little bit more creative, you can choose a gift like a baby book or a personalized story book for the child of a dear friend or family member.

Deciding on a Baby Shower Gift

Obviously, if you're going to get a baby book as a baby shower gift, you should have some idea of what style the parents would like to have. Some mothers look forward to entering every detail into a beautiful white book trimmed with lace and ribbons. Others know the value of a sturdy shoe box, and would like to have a cute or durable baby book that their child can flip through when he or she is still young.

If you want to give a truly comprehensive and fantastic baby shower gift, you could give not only the baby keepsake book itself, but also a camera, and a promise to take some pictures. A single mom, for example, can take pictures of her baby, but rarely gets any of the two of them together. A friend who comes by to help out and thinks to take pictures, too, can help make wonderful memories.

If you're looking ahead a little, you can also get books to read to the child. Very small children like to be read to, and there are charming and simple books appropriate for almost every age. Personalized books make very creative gift ideas, and are sure to be a delightful surprise at a baby shower.
