As a mama, wife, and blogger I lead conversations around the ups and downs of life, from practical tips to relatable stories that'll leave you thinking, "hey, I've been there too!"


Ready to Start that Podcast of Yours?

stay tuned!

Let's take a swing at this together! I'm spilling all of the secrets in my course!

It’s always so much fun to spoil my friends becoming mamas! There are lots of fun ways to do this that go beyond a baby shower gift but baby shower gifts don’t have to be lame and can be super fun! Here are my tricks:

  1. Grab a smaller basket rather than a bag + tissue paper (save the money and skip the waste, they can actually use the basket for decor, a diaper station or organization later!)

  2. Skip a card and get a cutie book that you love. Sign the inside with a sweet message or prayer for a sweet touch!

  3. Add an outfit that you know is mom’s style – my trick is to grab a size larger than newborn or 0-3 months so mom doesn’t forget about it. Plus, everyone gets baby newborn clothes! Pssst: make sure it’s in season for their size and not just the season we’re in now.

  4. A fun touch like a teether or a little pacifier can be a great stuffer you know mama and baby will try out

  5. I suggest adding things you know mom will need or use and want on back stock. Think soaps, lotions, detergent, etc. For soaps I love Tubby Todd! Click the link here and a 10% off code will be automatically applied! For baby detergent and laundry conditioner, we use the ones linked and love it!

  6. Depending on your budget you could add things like:

  7. Hooded bath towel and/or washcloths

  8. Swaddle blankets

  9. Gift card for mom from a nail salon or to the spa

  10. Burp cloths

  11. Diapers and wipes

  12. Accessories like bibs, socks, bows

You got this! It’s such a fun way to gift some things to mama and baby you know they’re going to love!
