Our 10 Favorite Books to Give at Baby Showers

You can never go wrong with a good children's book as your baby shower gift. A new baby needs their bookshelf stocked with plenty of books to enjoy each night at bedtime. There is nothing like enjoying a book with your child and watching them slowly drift off to sleep as you turn the pages. It also doesn't hurt if the books are funny and full of beautiful artwork so you can enjoy them as well (and not doze off). That's why we would like the share some of the books we enjoy reading to our children. But, before we get to the book list, we'd like to share a fun idea for your baby shower!

Books For Baby

Here is a great way to stock your baby's library with wonderful children's books filled with notes of love from all of your guests. Mom & baby will treasure these books for many years! Include one of our "Books for Baby" cards in with your Baby Shower Invites. The cards read "One small request that won't be too hard, please bring a book—instead of a card. Whether it's Cat in the Hat or Winnie the Pooh, you can sign the book with a little note from you." Our cards are only $5 for a digital download. Download the card and print as many as you need on your home printer. It's that easy and such a cute idea your guests will love! See our designs below:
