Check out these DIY unique, gender-neutral baby shower gifts that any future parent will rejoice at!

You probably won’t be the only person who will give them a blanket, but no need to worry about that, as there can never be too many blankets. They will get thrown-up on, spilled on, coughed on … you name it. Every momma will always want to have an extra blanket at hand, so contribute to your friend’s baby blanket collection with this adorable, neutral blanket by Little House Living.
This gift is perfect for anyone who lives in a household with a lot of people, or maybe just loud people. The parents-to-be probably don’t even realize how much they will need this, but once the baby is born, you can expect a big thank-you fruit basket! Visit Eleven Magnolia Lane for more details!

Last but not least, if you’re really worried they might already have everything they need, from diaper bags to teething rings, give them something that will add to their exciting time of expectation: a countdown. Every remaining day of pregnancy they’ll look at it and smile, knowing the time to meet their child is getting closer and closer. Find instructions at Project Nursery!
