4. Shift the focus to Mamma! Most baby shower goers are thinking about diapers and creepers, and cute baby shoes when they shop for baby shower gifts. A truly unique baby shower gift idea will be a gift meant to honor the Mom-to-be, rather than to shower the new baby. Some great gift idea for the new mamma? How about a gift certificate for a spa day, or a pair of some of the comfiest slippers you can find. How about a pedicure at the best local nail salon?

5. Shop practical! This is where you'll need to think slightly outside of the box, but your favorite momma to be AND her family will be blown away by your thoughtfulness. The first week home with a new baby, especially for a new mom, can be daunting. This is a time full of adjustments and sleep deprivation. If you want to give a gift that will speak volumes about how much you care, give the gift of "convenience". Hire a meal delivery service for a week, or a cleaning service!

The happy couple can cash in on it when they run out of all of their baby shower gift diapers (there will be many).

If you want to be the star of the baby shower, or just let that special new mom in your life know how much you care, giving a unique baby shower gift does not have to be a difficult task. Simply plan ahead, do some research, and think outside of the box!
