Best Baby Shower Gifts for an Indian Mom

Best Baby Shower Gifts for an Indian Mom

Going to a baby shower is all fun and exciting but selecting an appropriate gift for the would-be-mommy and the baby is not. While everyone goes crazy in buying stuff for the baby, I feel presenting gifts to the would-be-mommy is equally important. After all, it’s her day, and she should be pampered the most. Remember, a happy mom means a happy baby.

Also, in some parts of India, where buying a new gift for a baby before his/her birth is discouraged, one becomes clueless in what to buy after all. Keeping this in mind, the following is the list of items you can buy for a baby shower, that will ensure your gift will be used, remembered and cherished!

Maternity Clothing

During the last trimester, a would-be-mumma always falls short of beautiful clothing items. Hence, what better gift than clothes, that will make her feel beautiful again! With plenty of options to choose from, some of the wise and safest options are:

  • Maxi Dresses
  • Anarkalis
  • Nursing gown/ Nursing Dress/ Nursing Shirt
  • Saree
  • Nursing cover cum scarf

Breast Pump

Though not of immediate use, the breast pump comes in handy once the family is back home after delivery upon the arrival of the little one. While many may underestimate the value of this simple device, trust me, a breast pump is one of the most used items for the first few months.

Multi-function Pillow

This pregnancy cum feeding support pillow helps the new momma both before and after delivery. With comfortable design and beautiful colours, this pillow instantly becomes a favorite!

Skincare Kit

Choose a fragrance free & natural alternative in lotions, stretch mark creams, body butter, moisturizer, shampoos, conditioners, shower gels, oils etc. Some good and popular brands are The Moms Co., Mama Earth, Body Shop etc.

Healthcare Kit

Nutritious food will benefit both the mom as well as the baby. Choose from natural alternatives like seasonal fresh fruits, dry fruits, seeds, nuts, dates etc.

Grooming/Spa Voucher

This ‘Me-Time’ absolute will surely help in staying radiant and relaxing those pains and cramps every pregnant woman will love.

Diaper Bag

A diaper bag is quite useful: from packing the bag for hospital stay with baby essentials and using it after with day-to-day baby needs for outings, a diaper bag is going to stay for long. There are beautiful and practical designs available in the market today- diaper backpacks, diaper handbags, diaper messenger bags and more. Do try and keep the color gender neutral like green, orange or purple.

Must read:


If the lady is fond of reading, then books are the best. Baby and mom care books help the new mom in better understanding and mental preparation. If not, then gifting a baby/mom journal will surely help in documenting those priceless first moments of the baby. Also, rhymes and storybooks too can be considered, now that we know the importance of reading and singing to the baby in the womb.

What do you say guys? I hope this list helps you in easily deciding for a Baby Shower gift now.
