I think most of us in the family got the hand-me-down moccasins. But in case you don't have an auntie or grandma to make them for you, check out this wide variety of infant moccasins on Kitigan's website. They'll make for one of the most adorable Native American baby shower gifts you can find!


Or if you'd rather go for a softer baby shoe check out these baby booties made from Pendleton Virgin Wool from Oregon Wool Traders. A variety of colors to choose from!


Native American baby shower gifts don't have to be boring, right? So make bath time more fun with this bath toy set from Salish Style. It comes with a Sea Lion, Frog, Duck and Beaver!


Now that you're done with the bath it's time to dry off baby. How about getting them this Raven Sunburst hooded towel from Pendleton? My only wish is they had them in adult sizes! Hooded towels are also available for babies in four other designs.


It's never too early to start reading to your children. This sturdy Board Book Set from Salish Style will help out new parents at storytime. 



One of our favorite clothing lines, N8V Couture, offers their popular Sitting Bull Star and Definitely Native t-shirt designs on onesies! The Definitely Native onesie also comes in red, grey or yellow. It's definitely one of our favorite Native American baby shower gifts.


This Etsy shop from SheLah Nanabah Designs has several cute items for babies. First up is this adorable baby tie onesie with a Native print.


Next are these washable baby bibs with 5 patterns to choose from. They're going to get messy, so they might as well look great doing it!


When babies start crying, you need a fun distraction. And there's no more fun distraction than plush puppets from Squamish Lil'wat Cultural Centre. We love these as Native American baby gifts and there's 16 different animals to choose from! I'm partial to Mo the Moose.


And last but not least, you'll need a card to go with your gift. You can't go wrong with cute baby photos, but if you want to switch it up, heere's a lovely Kwakwaka'wakw design of baby feet. Cards can be found in the Love in Everything Etsy shop. Design is all blue, all pink or combo as shown above.

Hopefully, you've gotten some ideas for what to get the next little one that comes into your life. Anything to help out the new family is always appreciated, but of course nothing beats the gift of your presence. Doing the dishes or cooking a nice meal will never be turned down! A new baby announcement can be an exciting time, but it can also be stressful and challenging for new parents, so keep that in mind as you round into this season!
