The news of a new baby brings all kinds of warm fuzzy feelings for me. Once your family member or friend announces a new baby, the first thing you want to do is buy something for the new bundle of joy. Making a holiday themed baby shower gift is not only easy but it is economical and gender neutral.

Holiday Themed Baby Shower Gift
It is best to start looking for this gift as soon as you find out that the mom to be is expecting. The reason is that you can find some great deals on the items included in your gift if you are looking right after each holiday.
What’s in This Baby Gift?

Baby clothes! But not just regular baby clothes. You are going to include outfits, onesies, bibs, socks or even hats or bows that are holiday themed. It’s so fun to give a creative arsenal of “my first” holiday outfits to the new mom and baby!
You can really make this as elaborate or as simple and economical as you wish. If you shop early, you can get those after holiday clearance deals! In an effort to keep the gift affordable, I also like to do a mix of items. So if I want to put a cuter outfit or maybe even a smocked dress or Jon Jon for let’s say Christmas, then I might do just a bib and some themed socks for a smaller holiday like Valentine’s Day. It is really versatile and up to you as to how it is put together. You could even do all bibs or all “my first” onesies to keep it extra easy and inexpensive.
I’m Not a Planner and Need a Gift Saturday!
Lucky for you, the internet heard your cries. I love Pinterest so much but when I am looking for something now, the last thing I want to hear is that I should have started on this project 7 or 8 months ago (because hello, kids-job-house-life).
Even though you can get a better deal shopping the clearance racks on 12/26, 2/15, 3/18 and so on, you can still make a reasonably priced gift shopping online.
Here are some things that I found today that would work for this holiday themed baby shower gift:
St. Patrick’s Day
Happy 4th of July
Ghost Sleep and Play with Hat
(Great Option for Boy/Girl Twins)
Packaging the Gift
When packaging your holiday themed baby shower gift, you can again make it simple or go all out. I like to do just a simple bag with a tag that lists out some of the holidays that are included.
