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 | The Information Blanket
She might get a stash of receiving blankets at her shower, but we guarantee that none will be as special as this one. The Information Blanket is printed with vital safety information – like a growth chart, illness signs, feeding frequency, etc. – on a 100% cotton blanket that’s made in the U.S., hand-printed with non-toxic, water-based inks.
But your friend has an iPhone for that kind of information, you might be thinking. Well for each English-language version you buy, a second Information Blanket will be given to a new mother in Uganda, where lack of basic knowledge is a key contributor to why the country has one of the highest infant mortality rates in the world. So every time your friend wraps up her baby, she’ll know that there’s another lesser-privileged baby on the other side of the world being wrapped in the same blanket – and it might have helped save a life.
