Shopping for the perfect baby gift is so much fun and special. Whether the mama you're showering is a friend, colleague, family member, or yourself (!), the best baby gifts are unique, beautiful, useful, and come from the heart.
We absolutely love supporting small businesses in general, and baby gifts are no exception. Read on for our spring lineup featuring sweet handmade and carefully curated pieces for baby shower shopping or to celebrate any new parents.
Baby's First Swimsuit
It might not be the most practical baby gift, but it sure is cute! Treat the new mom with an absolutely precious, handmade bathing suit she can use for Baby's first trip to the pool or beach in summer. Sometimes the best baby gifts are the ones that can't be used right away, because it keeps that "new" feeling going for a few extra months. Check out Fancy Shmancy Baby on Etsy for mommy & me essentials including this stunning handmade rainbow swimsuit.
Baby Memory Book
The days, weeks, and months fly on by so fast when babies are little. Help the parents-to-be document the highs and the lows in a gorgeous baby book they'll treasure forever. This small-batch design from Funny Bunny Baby Shop on Etsy is constructed in four-ring binder format so you can move the pages around. Add photos, scribble in the margins, and make it your own! Any new mommy will be thrilled to receive this.
A monogram or wood name sign is such a special way to celebrate a new baby! Poke around Mama's baby registry to figure out the colors and textures she's incorporating into the room and then surprise the family with a handmade sign featuring the baby's name. This doubles as exquisite baby shower decor too; so there's no need to wrap!

Everything is handmade by Georgia moms.
