Baby shower gifts are so fun to pick out these days. When my friends started having kids several years ago, baby shower gifts were pretty limited. The hottest thing to show up with was a diaper cake, because there wasn’t that much cool baby gear out there. That’s not the case now, and here’s the thing: I love to be the friend that brings the baby shower gift that makes the mama-to-be and the other guests go, “Oh! Where did you find that? I’ve never seen that before!” I’m telling you, it’s so satisfying to know (even if no one admits it) that your gift was the best.
