Trendy Tiffany Blue Gender-Neutral Baby Shower Gift Basket Idea!

This post has been written as part of an affiliate campaign for Zulily.  All opinions expressed are my own.

Shopping for a baby shower gift is not the easiest thing if you want to give the perfect gift.  Should you stick to the parents-to-be's baby registry?  Should you go with something practical?  Should you buy luxe baby items that the couple would not necessarily splurge on with their own money?  The answer to all the questions above is "yes"!  You can use the gift registry as a guide and easily give the parents upgrades on the items on the list.  As long as you stick with their theme and colors, you should be good.

Most soon-to-be parents will include some basic baby essentials on their registry, such as baby blankets, receiving blankets, crib sheets, basic infant bodysuits for layering, and some extra clothing.  Whether they realize it or not, these items may need to be changed multiple times per day, so they can never have too many of them.  Then add one item that can be a keepsake for the parents.  Rather than the standard sterling silver spoon, opt for something that can be useful and be a cherished keepsake once the little prince or princess has outgrown it, such as the sterling silver teething ring/rattle we found on Zulily.  If you are not sure of the baby's gender and the parent's, then choose neutral colors, such as Tiffany blue, grey, and yellow, which are much trendier than the everyday pinks, blues, and greens.

Put all your items together in a container that will be useful, such as a diaper bag, a canvas storage bin, or a Moses basket.  After all, a nursery can never have too much storage!
