Now that you’ve crossed that off the list (and snapped your receipt), you’re all set for the shower, right? The mom-to-be is bound to be happy with your baby shower gift, but there’s one more thing you can do if you want to be her hero: make a small gift basket of essential baby products.
Mom and baby are going to love the monitor, mobile or crib you’ve wrapped up for the shower, but they’ll love you when they remember you stocked them up on some of these trending baby products.
