You’ve been invited to a baby shower and now you have to find the perfect gift for that new mom-to-be. There is a huge world out there filled with onesies, diapers, bibs, toys and blankets, and it can be a pretty confusing and overwhelming world for shopping. If the new mom has a registry that makes things a lot easier, as you can simply shop from her list. If not, then you’ll need to get a bit more creative. These stores all specialize in amazing baby gear for both baby and mom. You’ll find so many great things to buy that you may end up getting a few items or coming back later for some stuff for yourself. Take a look at these great shops for baby shower gifts in Denver.

Hilary and John Horan started Real Baby with one simple premise; to find the best stuff for babies and for kids. From that basic idea, the Real Baby store was born and that basic idea hatched into a great little oasis for all things baby. If your mom-to-be has registered with this delightful shop, it makes picking out those baby shower items even easier. If not, do not fear, because one visit to Real Baby will have you “oohing” and “aahing” over all the amazing little gifts, toys, clothes, accessories and more. You’ll find everything from the latest diaper bags to bath and potty items to travel gear and nursery décor. It’s a great spot to find a gift for the special mom to be in your life.

This Cherry Creek shop is actually a lovely design center with all the children’s furniture, bedding and other accessories any new parent could possibly want.

BabySitter’s Nightmare at FashioNation
613 E. 13th Ave.
Denver, CO 80203
(303) 832-2909
www.vixensandangels.com

For more than 20 years, FashioNation has been the place in town to go for hip, vibrant and edgy clothing and accessories. However, what you may not know is that just next door to FashioNation and from the same punk and underground culture is BabySitter’s Nightmare, a store devoted to the same kind of punk clothing for babies and kids. Just what kind of gear will you find there? It’s a store filled with clothing and gifts that are driven by music – think punk, goth, ska and rockabilly. If you are shopping for a mom-to-be that loves this type of fashion, then this is the best place to stop for some great gifts. You can grab some bibs, onesies, rompers and pacifiers that all have the same punk and rockabilly feel.
