The Copy & Paste Baby Registry Gift Guide

When it comes to baby registry gifts and lists, the most common question is usually, “What should I put on my baby registry and what should I skip?” So to make this whole registry thing easier, I’ve created The Copy & Paste Baby Shower Registry Gift Guide.

This guide is filled with the most useful baby shower gifts — with a focus on eco-friendly & natural when possible — using a combination of my own experience with 5+ kiddos, the needs of my expecting & postpartum clients, and online recommendations from parents throughout the U.S. Whether you’re a first-time parent, adopting, or expecting again, this guide was created for you — simply send it to friends & family instead of spending hours searching for the right items online! You could even add these items to your Babylist Registry.

This post contains affiliate links, which means that — at no cost to you — we may earn a small commission on any purchases you make from the recommendations we share. This helps keep our website running so that we can offer you free content and resources! All items have been sent in for review by the brands to ensure a fit, we won’t recommend something if it doesn’t pass our testing.

AirDoctor gift for new moms-to-be

Fresh Air Purification

Indoor air is often more toxic than the air outside thanks to the off-gassing of products we buy, from paint, and even from second-hand items. Placing an AirDoctor in your home helps to capture mold spores, pollen, bacteria, pet dander, and viruses using an UltraHEPA Filter and Dual Action Carbon/Gas Trap/Voc Filter. It’s not only important for the new baby, but the health of the whole family as they spend more time indoors during the first 40 days postpartum (and beyond).
