If you have a handful friends who are expecting, new parents, or are on to kid #5, you're probably getting tired of giving the same "classic" gifts over and over. And yes, you can't really go wrong with a good ole' pair of cute booties, a silver spoon, or a rocking horse. But if you'd like to spice up those baby showers a bit (and the new parents have a fun sense of humor), then this list is for you.
1. Help them learn what not to do with the Alphabet of Terrible Advice
Average rating: 4.5/5 stars (250+ reviews)
Reviewers say: "In case you haven't read yet, this is a great satire ABC book. Time to re-learn the alphabet. Most are cute but evil rhymes ("I is for identity, easily stolen. Just take some guy's credit card. BOOM! Now you're Nolan."), some are just various sentences. "(G is for grandma. Remind her she'll be dead soon.")"
2. Emphasize exercise early with a dumbbell rattle
Average rating: 4.4/5 stars (50+ reviews)
Reviewers say: "I am terrible at buying gifts for baby showers. I still don't know what expecting mothers typically expect from baby showers, but I've gotten this for several friends already and they all seem to be amused by it!"
3. Let mommy and daddy take a break from the world with an ostrich pillow
Average rating: 4.4/5 stars (20+ reviews)
Reviewers say: "Much more comfortable than you would think, and even though it looks completely ridiculous it is quite handy for daytime naps in bright spaces."
4. Put safety first with the Safe Baby Handling Book
Average rating: 4.7/5 stars (300+ reviews)
Reviewers say: "This book is absolutely hilarious. It's almost gag-gift worthy, but considering some of the stupid mistakes first time parents can make (and how seriously they can take themselves sometimes) it's a great reminder to loosen up, but think before you act. I will be buying this for every new parent I know!"
5. Give the gift of camouflage with the Boobie Beanie
Average rating: 4.5/5 stars (10+ reviews)
Reviewers say: "Got this for a friend for her soon-to-be-born baby. She loves it!"
6. Get real for a second with Here Comes Trouble socks
Average rating: 4.4/5 stars (115+ reviews)
Reviewers say: "I LOVE THESE SOCKS! Perfect fit, wording fun, design pretty with an attitude. Highly recommend these socks. I have purchased many and always very pleased. Will continue to purchase the designs I don't have."
7. Shock them with the ridiculous (and empty) Crib Dribbler box
Average rating: 4.7/5 stars (430+ reviews)
Reviewers say: "I put my very gullible sister's baby shower gift in this box. It was a lot of fun as she tried to figure out if it was real or not."
8. The "Snotsucker" is a real product but we just can't take it seriously
Average rating: 4.5/5 stars (7,700+ reviews)
Reviewers say: "Alright, I was a naysayer on this thing. I could barely look at without gagging. My bestie can't go down the aisle where they sell this in the baby store. However, that all changed when my baby girl had her first cold. This thing became my miracle worker that let my baby breathe and sleep!!!"
9. Let mommy express herself with the Mommy's Time Out wine glass
Average rating: 4.6/5 stars (150+ reviews)
Reviewers say: "Purchased for my daughter as a mother's day gift 9 months ago. She absolutely loves it and has brought some great laughs.. High quality and it is darn cute."
10. The bacon teething toy will really thrill vegan parents
Average rating: 4.5/5 stars (230+ reviews)
Reviewers say: "The best teething toy I have seen. My 6-month old neice LOVED it. Also makes for great photo opps. I'm still laughing. It looks like real bacon. It's very soft. It didn't not smell rubbery or like plastic so whatever material they used seems to be okay."
11. Keep it classy with a mustache pacifier
Average rating: 4.8/5 stars (60+ reviews)
Reviewers say: "I bought these for my niece's baby shower and they were a huge hit. Everyone is so excited to see her son with these adorable little mustaches."
12. "Porn For New Moms" isn't what you think...or is it?
Average rating: 4.6/5 stars (110+ reviews)
Reviewers say: "I first saw this in the waiting room of my midwife's office when I was pregnant and got a good laugh out of it. Now I give it to every expecting couple as a joke gift for dad to 'study'. No actual 'porn,' just funny campy photos of hunky shirtless guys doing household chores, changing diapers, etc. and saying things a new mom would love to hear..."sure, I'll watch the baby while you go to the spa" and "that 19 year old Swedish blonde is nice but I'd prefer an older nanny with more experience."
13. Help them de-stress with a self-therapy notepad
Average rating: 4.6/5 stars (45+ reviews)
Reviewers say: "I got it sort of a joke for my sister, but if you actually fill it out when you are angry or frustrated it can help you look at the situation a bit differently. I got for myself too, so I peel off a sheet and hand them out to my coworkers when they have a hard day. It's fun."
14. Join the dark side and give them a storm pooper onesie (also available in pink)
Average rating: 4.6/5 stars (120+ reviews)
Reviewers say: "Fits great, super cute, and good quality shirt and design. I got the 3-6 month size for my 12 week 14lb baby boy and it fits fine. The Star Wars fan in my life was very happy with this."
15. Make sure they're truly prepared with the Dirty Diaper Survival Kit
Average rating: 4.2/5 stars (50+ reviews)
Reviewers say: "I made a gift bag for my brother-in-law, cause his baby and wife were getting tons of things. It was a great surprise added to his bag. He laughed real hard and I think he'll be using it next month when his baby comes home."
16. Try reverse psychology and give them "How To Traumatize Your Children"
Average rating: 4.4/5 stars (120+ reviews)
Reviewers say: "Bought this for my brother who is expecting in May. I'll re-post in a few years to let you know if my niece is all screwed up."
17. Leave it up to chance with a "Predict Your Baby's Future" t-shirt
Average rating: 4.7/5 stars (100+ reviews)
Reviewers say: "We first got this for our son and his 2 friends when they were born 9 years ago, and it's still a great gift for any new parent! His friends got Hog Calling Champion and Game Show Host, and my son unfortunately got Conspiracy Nut. (Lets hope Mysterio is sometimes wrong!) I just bought another for my sister in law, I can't wait to see what her son gets!"
18. Sometimes they'll just need to tune everything out - give them a bunch of ear plugs
Average rating: 4.4/5 stars (670+ reviews)
Reviewers say: "The best ear plug I ever used. They are very comfortable. You don't even know you are wearing them. They cut out all unwanted noise. I will never use another type."
19. Or just go with the classic: "Go the F**k to Sleep"
Average rating: 4.7/5 stars (3,100+ reviews)
Reviewers say: "I bought this as a present for my friends who have been struggling to get their kid to sleep. They laughed and cried with identification when reading this. It is an adult-targeting book "disguising" as a children's book, written in short rhymes and printed in a large font over vivid drawing. It is written cleverly with a lot of talent, and captures much of the modern parenting experience in a hilarious way. I definitely recommend getting this as a cute gift."
