The Best Unique Baby Shower Gift
I always want to be the one to give a standout gift at any gathering, and it's especially fun to give a unique baby shower gift to an expecting mom or dad!
I've given quite a few unique baby shower gifts over the years and I've realized that, while all the presents have been different, they all follow a certain pattern:
- The baby shower gift has to be something I used and loved with my own baby. (Like all the fun products in my in my baby bathtub diaper cake!)
- It has to be useful or somewhat practical. (I'm not wrapping up silver spoons or tiaras!)
- It has to be a unique baby gift – I just want it to be special and I want it to stand out.
Don't get me wrong, I'm not competitive about giving something that stands out. I love seeing all the other unique presents that are given that day (and I just might file those baby gift ideas for future showers!).
Now, however, I think I've found the best unique baby shower gift ever: it's Dreft by You and it's perfect for just about any new parent!
Why is Dreft by You the best Unique Baby Shower Gift?
Dreft by You is such a great baby gift because it takes the classic gift of Dreft and hand-packages it into a baby gift that can be given in person or shipped anywhere in the United States for no additional cost.
I know I'm not the only one who loves Dreft – it's the #1 pediatrician recommended baby detergent. Their newest offering, Dreft purtouch (pure touch), is a hypoallergenic, 65% plant-based new detergent that still removes 99% of baby stains.
If you're a fan of the classic detergent that's been trusted by moms for over 80 years, then you can choose to gift Dreft Stage 1: Newborn in your Dreft by You package.
Here's an interesting fact: Dreft is formulated with an iconic scent that's been made to resemble the indescribable smell of babyhood. A recent study found that 8 out of 10 parents claimed the Dreft scent actually makes them feel bonded with their baby. In a way, gifting Dreft helps gift love between parents and baby!
How is Dreft by You a personalized baby gift?
I know you're thinking, How is laundry detergent personalized? The answer: tastefully.
Honestly, I love how Dreft by You allows you to choose the design and colors of the custom label and corresponding one-piece shirt. Then, there are two places on the label to insert your personal message.
You can see on my label I choose to write these messages:
Exclusively for Baby Hamilton 2018
I can't wait to meet you! Love, Auntie Marybeth
The one-piece baby shirt that comes with the personalized bottle of Dreft corresponds to the label design you choose. So if you like the fox (shown above), elephant or giraffe one piece, be sure to select that same animal for your Dreft detergent bottle.
Why is Dreft the best unique gift for baby showers you can't attend?
My very best friends are spread out across the country. If one of them became pregnant, of course I'd want to fly out to visit and help. But I would also have to make the choice to either attend the baby shower and pre-birth events, or travel after the baby is born to provide some hands-on help wherever I'm needed.
I am almost positive I'd choose to arrive once the baby is born, which would leave me wanting to send a gift for the shower.
Dreft by You is perfect for this! The personalized bottle of baby detergent is always welcomed by new moms and the cute shirt that goes with it is a way to make the gift a bit more fun.
Even better, the custom Dreft by You set is a flat $25 to send anywhere in the United States, and it arrives neatly presented in a fun way for new parents to open! The package also comes with a coupon with $2 off a future purchase of Dreft, which is so helpful for any busy new parent.
I love that Dreft by You is such an easy, unique baby gift, and the personalization means it's actually suitable for any new baby or new parent!
