Maybe just the car seat canopy and a few board books! Or baby lotion. Photo album.

I ALWAYS give diapers and wipes no matter what. They always need them.

I just bought gifts for two baby showers last night. I spent about $60 total and Got them 3 things a piece. Baby stuff is expensive & they'll be getting plenty of other things as well. Just give from your heart, whatever you feel is enough. I'm sure she'll be grateful for whatever she gets! ☺️

Diapers and wipes!! But not newborn! I'd do like 1's or 2's. Everyone brought me new borns and my baby was wearing sizes 1's from birth...

Swaddles, bath essentials and lotions, clothes for 6 months and beyond. I found the clothes helpful to receive, especially since I had a tall baby and she grew out of NB in like a week.

As far as gender neutral things... Blankets, bath towels, wash cloths, DIAPERS & WIPES, diaper rash cream, baby wash, etc. I made a big basket of all the necessities not too long ago for one of my best friends. Throw a little bit of everything in there ☺️

A good braun thermometer!!!! Best baby shower gift I have received(: also blankets as my kids go through them like crazy! I think a car seat canopy is more than enough though. ;)

Diapers! And not newborn size. Give size 1,2 or 3 so they have plenty when. I got so many diapers for my shower and didn't have to buy any until a couple weeks ago and my LO is 7 months old! Best gifts ever!

Diapers is a good idea... However, I got a bunch of diapers and wipes but we didn't use them because we were using a certain kind without bleach and chemicals. But most people will use everything! So it's not a bad way to go either. Also, I got baby stuff, but someone also added some things in for me too. Bath salts, snacks, ibuprofen. Haha. It was nice that someone thought about the mom too!
