Baby shower gift guide

Whether you opt for decorative items, practical essentials, or outright must-haves, the array of baby shower gift options seems endless! If you find yourself unsure about what to choose (and how much it should cost), worry not! We've gathered a few thoughtful ideas for baby shower gifts to help you express your love and joy for the growing family.

How Much Should You Spend on a Baby Shower Gift?

In general, people spend anywhere between $20 and $200 on baby shower gifts. However, if you can't afford that much, don't feel obligated to spend beyond your means. Remember, the thought and care you put into the gift are what truly matter. Whatever amount you decide to spend, your presence and well wishes at the baby shower will mean a lot to the expecting parents.

Here’s a quick guide based on your relationship with the future parents:

  • For coworkers or acquaintances, a popular budget range hovers around $30 to $50. It allows for thoughtful gestures without breaking the bank.

  • Stepping up the warmth and affection for friends or distant relatives, many generous gift-givers tend to allocate between $50 and $100. This budget range enables the selection of more personalized and meaningful presents.

  • When it comes to cherished close friends or beloved family members, the gift-giving sentiment reaches new heights. Most individuals willingly invest between $100 and $200 or even more to express their profound love and excitement for the impending bundle of joy.
