Baby stacker ring wood toy

Stacking toys like this rainbow ring wooden stacking toy by Happy Tree Store are great for babies and toddlers! These toys help babies and toddlers develop fine motor skills, learn the difference between ‘bigger and smaller’ and learn their colours. Plus, I often find that toys are often an overlooked present for baby showers and are a great way to help Mom and Dad out for those later months that people often forget about when purchasing baby shower gifts.

Wooden baby gym

I cannot tell you how helpful it would have been for me to have a play gym as a shower gift when I had my first little guy! It was one of the first purchases we had to run out and get after our little guy reached about two months old. This wooden baby gym will be a great way to stimulate baby without being TOO overstimulating (no flashy colours/sounds to overload them!)

Me and My Quilts Etc. on Etsy has tons of options for characters, etc. on these super adorable hooded bath towels, and you can choose between having them customized with baby’s name or not. Again, this is another gift I wish I would have received more of because I was ALWAYS needing a fresh towel for my little guys for all the baths I had to give them!

The Ultimate Baby Busy Board

This is the ULTIMATE baby busy board! This is a great way to keep six to 12-month olds busy, and once baby becomes a toddler, it will teach toddlers fine motor skills and problem-solving skills. Not to mention, this looks super cool and trendy and won’t leave a trail of messy toys behind for mom and dad to step on when a certain little one forgets to clean up.

I hope you enjoyed my round up of unique baby shower gifts! I think all of these would make awesome gifts that you can’t find a big box store anywhere, and I’m sure the little one’s parents will be overjoyed if you choose one of these items as your baby shower gift.
