Are you looking for that perfect baby shower gift or in need of some good ideas? Congratulations, we’ve got a bunch of ideas for all kinds of expecting parents. Baby showers can be stressful, but this page is filled with unique onesies that will make mom and dad giggle with joy.
Before scrolling down, here are a few tips for you to keep in mind. First, rompers, onesies, creepers, and one-pieces are all basically the same thing. They come in different sizes, but they usually all have button snaps at the bottom for easy removal.
Second, $50 is a good amount to spend on close friends and family members. Don’t feel pressured to go overboard. Fifty dollars gets you at least two onesies. If you don’t know the person that well, or they are a co-worker, try to keep it under $30. One romper should do the trick.
Finally, we do not recommend purchasing onesies that are 0-3 (newborn size). Babies grow quickly and most people are already going to buy that size for a gift. We suggest buying baby clothing that has a size of 3-6 (6 months) or 6-12 (12 months). Trust us, that first year will fly by and they’ll need to have something to wear 10 months from now.
Without further ado, here are our picks for the best baby shower gifts.
Contrary to popular belief, grownups do play video games. This includes females as well as males. Sometimes, they even stop to reproduce. Joke’s on them, with a baby you don’t get to play video games ever again. Let’s keep that between us.

This little gem is fairly obscure unless you’ve seen the classic or 1980’s film, Little Shop of Horrors, starring Steve Martin, Bill Murray, and Rick Moranis. It’s a pretty funny musical! Newborn babies need to be fed every 3-4 hours. It’s as much fun as it sounds.
Speaking of musicals, here’s a onesie that’s a bit more mainstream. Rocky Horror’s Time Warp song is a Halloween tradition, unless you just listen to it all year, every day.

If a member of your family is having a baby shower, then you have no choice but to get them this onesie for their newborn. At first they will think it’s cute, but eventually, they’ll come to the realization that their DNA is similar to yours. No matter, all humans share 99.99% of the same DNA.
