16 Cheap Baby Shower Gift Ideas

Have you ever been invited to one of those baby showers where you have a look at the baby shower registry and nearly faint at the prices of the gifts choices? Well I have many a time and while I don’t mind sometimes spending a bit on a baby shower present I don’t often have a load of money available to splash out on gifts for people.

As a mom of two I have to watch all the money I spend and I like to limit the amount of money that I spend on gifts for people so that I have more money to put away for my kids education fund and for spending on my own family.

Here’s a list of awesome cheap baby shower gifts that I came across:

    Oh my word, these gifts are so adorable. It makes me feel like having a baby all over again. One of my favorite things to do was to dress JD in the different outfits. I couldn’t wait to try on all those little outfits.

    Tommee Tippee products are awesome. I still use the Tommee Tippee bottles. I love their pacifiers. They have a great variety of designs to choose from. Unfortunately, JD had a preference for NUK dummies since he was a baby. So NUK soothers it is. They are also great but they don’t have nearly as many designs for the older age group (18-24 months) than the Tommee Tippee range.

    That Foxnovo caterpillar style baby pod and hat is the sweetest thing I’ve seen in a long time. I wonder if I’ll be able to crochet one of them. One of my friends is expecting at the moment. It doesn’t look too difficult a design.

    Flannel blankets are the best for swaddling. I used mine every day.

    I love the Johnsons first touch gift set and the six pack baby socks. We went through a lot of socks, because the first year of a baby’s life, it’s not even worth spending money on shoes. It’s not practical and they grow to fast.

    Pacifier clips are great, even for when babies grow older. This is a must have item.

    • I know exactly what you mean – I got some seriously cute little outfits when my babies were born and I loved playing dress up too! I have to admit that the Caterpillar Pod is hands down my favourite on this list too 🙂
