Baby Shower Gifts
As much as we love gift registries, the perfect baby shower gift isn't always on there. You're probably looking for something that's both useful and memorable - with a little wow factor, even.
We all know about diaper cakes, breastfeeding pillows, and Gerber onesies (all great gifts!), so we've hand-picked baby shower gifts that are a little more special than the rest. From better must-haves to luxe splurges, browse through gifts that are sure to get oohs and aahhs at the baby shower. If we missed a gift you love giving, nominate it here! - Michelle Horton

Baby Essentials | aden + anais Mela Bamboo Swaddles
If you think all swaddle blankets are created equal, then you definitely haven’t used an aden + anais swaddle yourself. Many parents are now passing on this baby product find to pregnant girlfriends, making it a popular gift among moms in the know. Breathable, soft, and universally loved, these blankets help swaddled newborns feel secure and safe, while multi-purposing as stroller blankets, nursing covers, burp cloths, tummy time blankets, portable crib sheets, etc. (My 3-year-old still uses his aden + anais swaddle as his nighttime blankie.)
Rather than buy the typical muslin swaddle, spring for the bamboo version. The extra-soft, lightweight fabric is nothing short of luxurious – sure to be baby’s very favorite. (In fact, anything you buy from aden + anais – especially their burp cloths that double as full-coverage baby bibs – is sure to be a favorite.)
