Coed baby showers are an incredible opportunity for family and friends to gather together and celebrate the parents-to-be. Full of food, drinks, games and laughter, couples baby showers tend to have a relaxed and happy vibe.
Shower the new mom and dad with support by bringing an item they’ll need once their new little one arrives. To offer inspiration, we’ve compiled 29 coed baby shower gift ideas — from soft blankets to adorable hats and festive onesies.
1. Quilted Playmat
Create a beautiful space for the baby to wiggle, play and practice tummy time. Cut round pieces of fabric and fill them with cotton batting to form a durable quilt. Choose a fabric that matches the nursery theme — whether it’s nautical or safari.
2. Baby Holiday Decor
Help mom and dad prepare for baby’s first holiday season. Sew a small felt stocking and add a cute animal like a mouse or kitten. The new parents can hang it from their Christmas tree, mantel or staircase.
3. Leather Diaper Clutch
Make on-the-go diaper changes as easy as possible with a trendy leather clutch. Ensure that it’s large enough to fit the essentials like wipes, diapers and a small tube of rash paste.
4. Custom Picture Frame
Looking for cute couples baby shower ideas? Personalize a picture frame for the growing family so they can display photos of their little one’s first smiles and walks through the neighborhood.
5. Handmade Burp Cloth
Parents can never have too many burp cloths. Find playful patterns, like fabrics with florals or firetrucks, to match the parents’ personalities and hobbies.
6. Baby Kimono
A beautiful kimono wraps easily around a little one and adds plenty of style to their outfit. Choose a lightweight fabric that will keep the baby cool and comfortable.
7. Diaper Cake
Arrange rolled up diapers in layers to resemble a stacked cake. Add decorations to the ‘cake’ like stuffed animals, baby powder and rubber ducks.
8. Colorful Nursery Mobile
Brighten the baby’s nursery with a vibrant, playful crib mobile. Made with yarn, ribbon and macrame rings, this piece hovers above the bassinet or crib to keep the baby happy and relaxed.
9. Photo Key Ring
Whether the new mama is on her way to a doctor’s appointment or family outing, she’ll take her keys with her. A custom photo keychain will touch her heart, especially if it includes maternity or family photos.
10. Ruffled Dress
Layer pieces of fabric to create a ruffled effect for a baby girl’s dress. She can wear it to a holiday party, summer gathering, wedding or photoshoot.
11. Crochet Headband
Is baby due during the cooler months? Crochet a headband out of yarn to keep their ears and head warm during walks in the park and other family outings.
12. Padded Crib Rail Cover
When baby grows to teething and climbing age, give them something softer and safer to chew on than the rail of their crib. Form a padded guard out of flannel fabric and cotton batting to protect them from nibbling on wood and paint.
13. Personalized Blanket
Cozy blankets come in handy for playtime, picnics and snuggles. Imprint a family photo on a woven blanket for a special gift that will be cherished for years to come.

Decorate a onesie with vinyl adhesives or fabric paint. Include a clever saying or a baby-themed quote to make it extra special.

16. Linen Dress
Repurpose an adult linen shirt into a casual dress for baby girl. This outfit is lightweight and stylish, plus it’s easy for parents to pull on and off.
17. Name Garland
