Let It Rain: Baby Shower Gift Guide

Did you know that September is the most popular month for women to give birth? Even if you didn’t, you’re probably experiencing a tell-tale sign: we’re in the thick of baby shower season!

In honor of this fun time of year—celebrating new babies about to make their debut—we’re rounding up some Graco® gifts that would make a perfect addition to any shower.

ZooCrew ™ Deluxe Health & Grooming Kit
This 18 piece set turns the everyday, practical tasks such as temperature taking, teeth brushing and nail clipping into a whimsical jungle adventure. A happy alligator serves as nail clippers (with a handy light so that mom gets a good view of baby’s tiny digits), a cute giraffe is baby’s first toothbrush, and a friendly tiger with digital display even makes temperature-taking more pleasant—just to name a few. This group of playful zoo animals is not only fun, but it has all of the grooming essentials a new mom (or dad!) needs, rather than having to them piece together individually.

Sweet Slumber™ Sound Machine
Having a baby that sleeps well means that parents can sleep too. The Sweet Slumber sound machine helps lull baby into a peaceful rest, with 12 built in sounds—including lullabies, nature sounds and white noise. For even more variety as baby grows and his music taste develops (you never know—we could have a little Mozart on our hands!), parents can hook up their own MP3 player to play their own tunes. The soft glow of a nightlight makes it easy for mom and dad to look in on their angel during naps. Plus, this essential piece of baby gear is totally portable, perfect for parents who have travel plans in their future!

True Focus™ Digital Video Monitor
New parents are always concerned about keeping a constant connection with baby—but they soon realize that they have to keep up with other tasks around the house  too. With Graco’s True Focus Digital Monitor, it’s easy to hear and see every movement, coo, cry and gurgle. The high-resolution, 2.4 inch color screen is equipped with night vision so parents can still see at night. The handy belt clip allows dad to attach the receiver on his waistband while he does hands-free tasks, like mowing the lawn or doing household repairs, and with the exclusive vibration, he’ll know if baby is calling. For mom, the receiver has sound lights, so if she’s getting to take a shower or something where she can’t hear or feel the receiver, she can still see it light up as baby’s cry intensifies.

Since it’s digital, the monitor is secure—meaning that parents will see and hear their own baby and not their neighbors’, and their neighbors won’t be able to see them. The 2.4GHZ frequency means that there’s no interference from household electronics. This monitor also has an impressive 1,000 foot range, so it covers the whole house.

Having trouble deciding? A gift card to any of the Graco retail partners (including Target®, Babies “R” Us®, Buy Buy Baby®, Burlington®, Wal-Mart® and Amazon®) make great gifts too!

    I hope you don’t think this too picky, but when I clicked on ” Learn more about Karen” and read about your favorite childhood memory I was very confused. It does not mention whom was reading to you and you to him in your later years.
    It is just confusing and incomplete.
