Many of the large baby shower gifts such as cribs, strollers and highchairs can be given as a group gift. Simply have two or three people pool their money together to buy a new mom those nice items that may be out of her budget.

Leave the price tags on the items you purchase in case they need to be returned. Simply cut away the price and leave the bar code attached. This allows new moms the option of returning items if she receives duplicate gifts.
