How Much to Spend on a Baby Shower Gift

It’s a dilemma like no other: You’ve got a baby shower coming up soon and haven’t bought a gift yet. What is the socially acceptable amount to spend on a present? Figuring out how much to spend on a baby shower gift often feels like a balancing act between being as supportive as possible with top-of-the-line expectant parent gifts and being reasonable by giving a gift you know they’ll use but that won’t break your bank.

The baby shower gift price range goes from affordable to expensive fairly quickly, and it’s easy to get caught up in the number of options available. Before you go crazy on a baby shower gift and deciding on the appropriate baby shower gift cost, there are a few things to consider - especially if you want to get the right gift for the expectant parents. Begin by asking yourself, how well do I know the expectant mother/family? This can help you determine how much moolah you want to set aside. Once you’ve established that, you can begin to brainstorm some fun, unique, and essential gift ideas and get an overall better idea of how much to spend on baby shower gifts in the process. 

Co-worker or Acquaintance

Is there a baby shower coming soon at work or in your friend group? It’s always safe to go with something small yet useful. When determining how much to spend on a baby shower gift in this type of setting, the price point can be around $25. Take a look at the expectant momma’s registry and select something practical. The 2-In-1 Double Zipper Swaddle Transition Sleepsuit makes a great gift around this budget and provides baby with even more comfort and care. 


Wondering how much to spend on a baby sprinkle gift or baby shower gift as a close friend to the parents? Like a trusted friend, you can’t go wrong with giving the new parents something they will use every day. It’s standard that friends stay in the $50 baby shower gift price range. This makes the Instant Formula Warmer a great candidate for a gift under $50– it dispenses instantly warm water that maintains its temperature all day and all night long, meaning parents and babies alike won’t have to wait any longer for feeding time. Use any of the 3 warming settings to get baby’s formula to the perfect temp, and dispense easily with a push of the lever. The tank itself holds 50 ounces of water, meaning it’s good to go throughout the day!

The new Mom or Dad will also need a stylish diaper bag to carry around, so something like the Ultimate Changing Station Diaper Bag Backpack, with its exceptional organization, spacious interior, and removable changing pad will do the trick as one of the essential expectant parent gifts.

If you’re not sure what to give or left the shopping to the last minute, you can select a Baby Brezza gift card, delivered within 2 hours. You can select the amount to give within your budget, and the new parents can get the gift that works best for them.

Close Friend, Relatives or Grandparents

If you’re someone very close or related to the soon-to-be parents, you should splurge on a gift that makes a real difference in their lives. When it comes to family wondering how much to spend on a baby shower gift, your price range can vary from $100 to $250. But don’t feel like you have to take on that expense all by yourself. You can split the cost on an amazing shower gift with other family members or close friends so that covering the baby shower gift is easier and comes from more of you at the same time!

New parents will make 6 or more formula bottles a day in the first few months after the baby is born. Expectant parent gifts like the Baby Brezza Formula Pro Advanced Formula Dispenser will allow them to automatically make a warm formula bottle instantly. It’s like a Baby Keurig! And the expectant friends will thank you multiple times a day for saving them so much time! If you’ve got a baby shower coming soon with close friends and family, be sure to discuss getting this ultra-helpful piece of gear as a group so that everyone is involved!

Baby shower gift cost and quality can range from casual to high-tech at the drop of a hat, but group gifting always helps for higher ticket expectant parent gifts. Another option is to help the expectant parents prepare for introducing solids which happens sooner than they think when their baby is 6 months old. The Baby Brezza One Step™ Food Maker Deluxe is a perfect gift, which automatically steams and blends homemade baby food in one easy step. There’s no easier way to make homemade baby food which is not only better for baby’s development but also saves parents hundreds of dollars versus store-bought baby food. 

Another way to save expectant parents’ time (which they won’t have enough of when baby arrives) is to give the Baby Brezza One Step™ Sterilizer Dryer. This machine automatically sterilizes and dries bottles, pump parts, and accessories in one easy step. The last thing anyone wants is for the new baby to get an infection from bacteria that can grow from an unsterilized baby bottle. The sterilizer dryer reduces that risk by killing 99.9% of germs with natural steam in just 8 minutes — then automatically drying so a drying rack isn’t necessary. With so many expectant parent gifts to choose from, covering the baby shower gift is easy.
