It’s baby shower season! Here are some great gift ideas for new moms

Do you have a baby shower coming up? You're not alone — most babies are born between July and September. So I rounded up some of the best gift ideas for the mom-to-be.

1. A year's worth of diapers

Any new parent will tell you that diapers are the best gift to get, but handing someone a few bags of diapers isn't the sexiest present. Enter IncrediBundles. They are a "modern twist on the baby gift basket." You can choose a year's worth of diapers or a three-month time frame. It's perfect if a few friends want to chip in and buy one gift. It comes in a beautiful, reusable box. The company also has other great bundles, like a year's worth of toys.

2. Onesies

White onesies are essential for any new baby, but they're also a bit boring. Enter Primary. The company offers "awesome basics at reasonable prices." This baby suit set is perfect for both boys and girls, and it comes in no animal or other prints, just pretty colors. Perfect for when baby is at home sleeping (which is a lot at first) and parents don't want to dress him or her up in a "going-out" outfit.

3. Pack and play

While Mom and Dad might not realize how much they're going to need this when their baby isn't moving around yet, it will be a lifesaver once the baby is mobile. Enter 4moms' breeze. The easy breakdown and setup make this a "breeze" (pun intended). It's perfect for setting up in your living room or taking on a road trip to set up at Grandma's house, and it comes with an infant bassinet and carrier bag too.

4. Video baby monitor

Whether you live in a small space or a large one, a video baby monitor is essential. It's not just about hearing what's going on in the room, but being able to see what's going on. Enter Motorola MBP36S. This monitor has a digital color screen, displays room temperature, plays five lullabies, tilts, zooms and has two-way communication so that you can talk to your baby even if you're not in the room. A must-have for any new parent!

5. Infantino Squeeze Station

Making homemade baby food is so easy, and it's good for babies once they start solids. But grabbing a ready-made pouch is so much easier than making your own. Enter Infantino. The company offers a great system that combines the ease of a disposable pouch with homemade baby food. The Squeeze Station lets you put homemade baby food into disposable pouches. If you're getting this for a new mom, make sure to pick up extra pouches and the freezer storage container.

6. Please and Carrots

Knowing which toys to buy is harder than one would think. Enter Please and Carrots. Please and Carrots is a subscription box service that delivers the most developmentally appropriate toys and books for the baby (ages 0-3) right to Mom's doorstep every month.

7. Bubula steel diaper pail

A new baby means a lot of dirty diapers, but most diaper pails are a bit of an eyesore in an otherwise pretty nursery. Also, you have to buy special garbage bags. Enter Bubula. You can use the same garbage bags you use in other trash cans. Plus, the steel and aluminum construction has a strong, flexible rubber seal to keep the airtight lid from leaking odors from stinky diapers. It also comes in a bunch of beautiful pastel colors.

8. Baby carrier

A baby carrier is essential during the first few months after your baby comes home. Most babies want to be held 24 hours a day, and Mom will want to use her hands. There are a number of baby carriers on the market, but for the first few months, you should use a fabric one to keep baby nice and snug. Enter ACK Wrap, the most stylish way to wear your baby. It has a lightweight fabric for those hot summer months and looks great.

9. Infant tub

Bath time is a fun time for Mom and her baby, but the first few times are very stressful. Enter 4moms' infant bathtub. It tells you the temperature of the water, and it'll beep if it's too hot. Also, there's a side drain to get dirty water out and fresh water to flow in. You can add some bath time supplies, like baby shampoo and a towel or two, and you have the perfect gift.
