Thinking Beyond the Bootie: Innovative Shower Gift Ideas

Attending a baby shower soon and want to be the talk of the party? Well if so you should consider something than the traditional diaper bag or cute onesie.

Why not give it a little more thought and bring a new and innovative baby shower gift for the expectant or new mom. Here are ten innovative baby shower gift ideas that are sure to make you stand out from the crowd. 

1. Doc in a Box

Purchase a cute basket and fill it with first aid items for baby including a digital thermometer, infant vitamin D drops, non-aspirin liquid pain and fever reducer, anti-gas drops, etc.

Items like these are something baby may need when they get home from the hospital and this basket prevents mom and dad from having to run an emergency errand.
