Spring Baby Shower Gift Ideas

Spring is a beautiful season for new beginnings, and what better way to celebrate than with a baby shower for an upcoming spring baby? Finding the perfect gift for a baby shower can be a daunting task, especially when the baby is due in a specific season. However, with a little creativity and thoughtfulness, you can easily find the ideal gift for a spring baby.

When it comes to choosing spring baby shower gift ideas, I recommend considering items that are both practical and seasonally appropriate. There is no point buying a baby snow suit or extra warm sleep sacks in the middle of spring as by the time winter comes around the baby will more than likely have outgrown it. It’s also another item for the new parents to store, which can be an issue especially if storage space is limited.

The good news is, it’s easy to find a spring gift for newborn that will make both the baby and the parents happy.


Spring-Themed Baby Shower Gifts

Spring is a season of renewal and growth, making it the perfect time to welcome a new baby into the world. If you're searching for the perfect gift for a spring baby shower, then take inspiration from my list of spring-themed baby shower gifts.

Baby Clothes

Newborns grow quickly, so it's important to have a variety of clothing in different sizes. Consider purchasing onesies, sleepers, and outfits in sizes ranging from newborn to 6 months. 

Look for clothing made from soft, breathable materials such as cotton or bamboo. 

And if you really want to add a touch of springtime flair, I highly recommend you choose clothing with floral or pastel patterns.

Diaper Backpack

There is nothing quite like going for a relaxing walk on a beautiful spring day, so why not help a new mom out and gift her with a gorgeous and practical diaper backpack so she can enjoy the spring air.

These backpacks are designed to be worn on your back, and hold all of the essentials, such as diapers, wipes, bottles, and snacks. They often come with additional pockets and compartments for organization. Some even have built-in changing pads, making diaper changes on-the-go a breeze. Look for a bag that is both stylish and functional, so that new parents can use it for years to come.

Sensory Play Mat

Sensory play mats are a great way to stimulate a baby's senses and help with their development. These mats come in a variety of textures, colors, and shapes, providing a fun and interactive playtime for babies. Some sensory play mats even come with toys attached, making it easy for babies to explore and play.

These are also great for new parents to be able to pop outside to enjoy some of the gorgeous spring weather.

Cloth Books With Spring Themes

Cloth books are a great way to introduce babies to the world of reading. Books with spring themes such as flowers, animals, and insects are perfect for a spring baby. These books are not only educational but also colorful and engaging, making them a great addition to any baby's book collection.

Portable Play Yards

A portable play yard is a great way to keep the baby safe and contained while outside on a gorgeous spring day. Look for a play yard that is easy to set up and take down and has a sunshade to protect the baby from the sun. 

Sun-Protective Gear

Protecting the baby from the sun is essential when spending time outside. Consider gifting sun-protective clothing, hats, sunglasses, baby swimsuit, and baby sunscreen lotion. Look for items that have a UPF (Ultraviolet Protection Factor) of 50+ to ensure maximum protection. 

Muslin Swaddle Blankets

Muslin swaddle blankets are a versatile and practical gift for any new parent, especially in the as the weather starts to warm in late spring. They can be used as a swaddle, a nursing cover, a burp cloth, or even a stroller cover. They are lightweight, breathable, and come in a variety of cute patterns and colors. Plus, they are affordable, making them a great option for those looking for inexpensive baby shower gifts.

Themed Bedding Sets

A themed bedding set can add a touch of whimsy and personality to a baby's room. Whether it's a floral print or a cute animal design, there are plenty of options to choose from. Some popular themes for spring include butterflies, birds, and blooming flowers. I recommend buying fitted crib sheets as these are always practical.

Mobiles and Wall Art

Mobiles and wall art can be both decorative and stimulating for a baby. A mobile can be hung above the crib or changing table and can feature colorful shapes or animals that move and sway. Wall art can include framed prints, canvases, or decals that add a pop of color and personality to the room. Look for pieces that match the theme of the bedding set or the overall decor of the room.

Lightweight Strollers

A lightweight stroller is a must-have for any outdoor springtime adventures with a baby. Look for strollers that are easy to maneuver and fold up compactly for transport. 

Seeing a stroller is a big-ticket item, you may want to check with the new parents for their preference before purchasing. I also think this is a great give idea if you want to pool together with others to buy a larger gift item.

Universal Stroller Organizer

If you have a stroller, then a universal stroller organizer is a must! These are designed to attached to your strollers handle and store all your essential items like keys and phone within quick reach.

Baby Carrier

I personally think a baby carrier is a must-have at all times of the year, but they are extra handy in the spring months when you plan to get outdoors more. They are also a great way to for a bond with your newborn baby.

You may want to check with the new parents to see what type of baby carrier they prefer.

Car Shades For Windows

Car shades are a unique baby shower gift that help prioritize the safety and comfort of the baby by shielding them from direct sunlight and harmful UV rays during car rides on those sunny spring days. 

Whilst some newer cars may have these inbuilt, if the new parents’ vehicle lacks these built-in shades, they can simply install aftermarket car shades for the windows. A set of window shades that adhere to the glass is all that is needed.

Wearable Breast Pump

Springtime or not, a wearable breast pump makes for a fantastic baby shower gift for any breastfeeding mom. Not only can she easily express her breastmilk, but she can do it on the go, handsfree! 

My top pick is the MomMed S21 for it’s easy of use, comfort, and great suction!
