What Baby Shower Gift Should You Give?

Written by:PaulAugust 10, 2022

Invited to a baby shower? Building a baby registry for your friends and family?

Warm greetings, baby shower games, and hors d'oeuvres are all part of the fun, but there's one part of any baby shower that can leave you scratching your head: gift giving.

Whether you’re preparing to host a baby shower or attending one, finding (or asking for) the right baby gift is key.

But, what even is the perfect gift for a soon-to-be-born baby? Are you buying for the parents or the child? How do you choose the perfect gift for someone who hasn’t even been born yet? 

It's enough to make even the most-well intentioned gift-giver's head spin!

Simka Rose is here to help with a few great gift suggestions!

Read on to find inspiration, build your baby registry checklist, or find the perfect baby shower gift!

As any parent can tell you, newborns are fussy creatures. For all the wonder and beauty they bring to the world, it only takes one tiny thing to turn a baby into a crying hurricane of emotion.

That can be something as simple as mild hunger or a momentary flash of the sun in their eyes.

That’s why we believe that a solid car seat canopy is an essential piece of parenting gear.

The Simka Rose Infant Car Seat Cover is a multi-use fabric protector that slides instantly over a car seat or stroller to keep kids safe and protected from the sun.

Its uses don't end there, though! It also works as a nursing privacy cover for mommy, as a wearable blanket, or even as a burp cloth in a baby barf emergency (Hey, we’ve all been there). 

Removing the cover and checking on the baby is super easy, thanks to the soft, stretchy, machine-washable fabric.

New parents will find endless uses for this versatile, multi-use cover!

Babies are messy, especially when it comes to mealtime. The process of learning to eat is full of spilled drinks, dropped food, and all manner of falling crumbs and liquids.

It’s all part of being a baby! What does that mean for parents?

Lots and lots of cleaning.

Luckily, Simka Rose Silicone Bibs are designed to catch messes before they hit the floor. They have a handy front pocket that’s perfectly placed to scoop up anything that falls, dribbles, or escapes from tiny mouths and fingers.

These bibs are adjustable to safely fit any baby and are dishwasher safe for easy, hassle-free cleanup.

They're the secret weapon of baby mealtime!

The expression ‘sleep like a baby’ was probably coined by someone who wasn’t a parent.

Getting a newborn to go to sleep can be quite the challenge, but swaddling can make it quite a bit easier.

Wrapping a baby up tight helps them feel secure and cozy, which can help them sleep better, for longer. 

Swaddling is even easier when you have the right blanket. Enter the Simka Rose Muslin Swaddle Blanket.

Designed with swaddling in mind, our blankets are made from a safe, breathable bamboo cotton blend and are OEKO-TEX® Standard 100 Certified.

That means that the fabric has no chemicals or baby-unfriendly substances from manufacturing. It's one of the highest health, safety, and environmental standards you can reach when it comes to fabrics.

Our swaddle blanket is 46 x 46 inches, the perfect size for swaddling any baby. It also works as a surface for tummy time, or in a stroller as a multi-purpose travel blanket.

Best of all, it’s machine-washable, so parents can simply toss it in the washing machine whenever they need to.

The Simka Rose Waffle Blanket is an all-purpose baby blanket that works perfectly as a swaddling blanket, receiving blanket, stroller blanket, crib blanket, or burp cloth. 

At Simka Rose we love using them as the background for our baby photoshoots!

This textured waffle weave is made from 100% organic cotton and offers more warmth than our bamboo cotton muslin blanket.  Like the swaddle blanket, it's also certified at Standard 100 by OEKO-TEX®.

It will be a comforting part of any child's life, starting as a swaddle blanket or (safely-tucked) crib blanket before evolving into a warm toddler companion. 

Of course, it’s also machine washable so parents can easily wash it, no matter how well-loved it is and how many toddler adventures it survives. 

This lightweight, stretchy blanket is a great multi-use baby gift.
