The Best Baby-Shower Gifts - Darn Good Yarn

The Best Baby-Shower Gifts

Written by Kate Curry

I feel like everywhere I look in my life, there’s a pregnant person- they’re popping up out of nowhere! All I can think about is which gift would be perfect, what would be meaningful, or helpful, or at least not hated! If anyone else is having this same issue- I’m here to help! 

Folklore Handmade Slippers 

A pair of feet wearing the teal slippers from Darn Good yarn are hanging off of a stool in an outside garden.

Darn Good Yarn partnered with GK Collective to customize super comfy slippers! You can get a pair for the baby and for the expecting parents! 

Pixie Bonnet Crochet Kit

A blonde haired baby wearing white and blue clothes is facing right. They're wearing a blue-purple crochet pixie bonnet as they sit on a set of stone stairs.

This is a must-have for any little one's hat collection. Pattern includes sizes for newborn, infant, baby, toddler, and child.

One-of-a-Kind Sari Silk Purses

A sari silk patchwork purse is sitting on an outdoor wooden picnic table. The bag is patchwork green, red, yellow - and more!

This is the PERFECT baby bag! Each one of these Sari Silk Purses is a little different and handcrafted with love by the women in our co-ops in Nepal. The strap is adjustable and has a zipper closure 

Mommy + Me Pack Crochet Kit

A woman with long brown hair and a young child with blonde hair are facing away from the camera. They're out in the woods and the adult it pointing at something out of the sight of the image. The pair are wearing matching outfits: brown boots, blue jeans, light pink shirts, and matching ombre pink backpacks.

These Mommy + Me Packs will help keep the expecting parent and their little one organized on their day-to-day adventures! With tote bag and backpack options available, you can not only choose your favorite style, but also your favorite color of our Chiffon Ribbon. (We suggest making your little one a backpack - let's face it, most of them won't keep a purse on!)
