As the grandmother, what type of baby shower gifts should I buy?

Baby Gifts That Impress

It's not just anyone having a baby shower, it's your granddaughter. You can still remember the day she was born. You watched her grow, helped spoil her, and now here she is having a baby of her own. When it comes to coming up with baby shower gift ideas, the pressure is on. You're the grandmother! The original matriarch! People are going to be watching to see what unique baby shower gift ideas you come up with. OH, and they have to cost more than $9.99, otherwise you come across as a cheap old lady.

So here's the thing, even if you don't spend a lot on the baby shower gifts, make it look like you did. Buy quality items on sale, but make sure to lean over and whisper, “It took two pension checks to pay for that.”

Seriously though, for some truly unique baby shower gift ideas, check these out:

  • Baby bedding
  • A set of Dr. Seuss books for mom to read to baby. You can never start too young.
  • A stroller
  • A baby swing
  • A baby monitor
  • A savings account for baby with some money to start the account
  • A baby crib mobile
These are just a few great baby shower gift ideas to choose from and remember, just because you buy a new born baby gift on sale, doesn't make you a cheapskate
