Weird Baby Shower Gifts Parents Will Love

Baby showers can be a lot of fun, but one of the best parts is actually giving gifts that the new parents will like and/or use.  Sure, you could get something off of the baby registry, but you certainly aren't obligated to do so. Plus, if you like to have that gift that everyone is still talking about long after the baby shower is over, you'll want to look at this list.

If the little girl on the cover bending over doesn't grab you attention, this product surely will. It's designed to help your baby pass gas. Yes, it's a baby fart assistance device. Now while that seems laughable, there is nothing funny about a gas filled baby who doesn't know how to break wind, hence The Windi. You just insert the device where the sun doesn't shine, and... instant cure for gas. It's 100% biodegradable, BPA- Free, and latex-free. Just what every parent needs, even if they don't know it yet.

Yes, the good people who brought you The Windi, also brought you NoseFrida: The Snotsucker. (Just say that a few times really quickly.) This device is super handy, despite the fact it sounds gross. You insert one end into the baby's nose, and one part into your mouth and suck! Don't worry! There are hygiene filters so you don't down some snot. Again, when baby is stuffed up and nothing else works, you'll be glad you've got this by your side.

The Pee-pee Teepee is designed for little boys. When changing their diaper, let's just say it can get a little wet. This handy little device is popped on top of the potential fire hose while you're finishing up the diaper change to prevent you and everything else from getting soaker. These get thrown in the laundry with everything else and are a great conversation starter.

One of the hardest things that you will do as a parent is to cut 10-20 of the tiniest, paper thin nails you've ever seen. All while chasing a wiggly, sometimes crying infant who refuses to have these razor sharp nails tamed. These won't keep the kid from squirming or the crying from happening, but you can greatly reduce the risk of drawing blood if you can see what you're doing.

This is an adorable toy from Lamaze. It's got teethers for antlers, knots as legs, and a squeaky body. That said, it's on here because it's not your usual toy. No bunny, kitty, or puppy to be found here. Raise your kid to be the outdoorsy type. Attaches to strollers, diaper bags, and more.
