5 Baby Shower Must Haves #Amazinghood + Giveaway

This post and giveaway were made possible by iConnect and Dreft. I was compensated for my participation in this campaign, but all opinions are 100% mine.


When my kiddos were babies, Dreft was a part of our home routine. I think about how fresh my children’s clothes smelled after they came out of the dryer. Oh, the memories! #amazinghood

Dreft believes that for many moms and dads, doing baby’s laundry is more than just an ongoing chore – it serves as a way to relish in the amazing moments and stages of babyhood.  As babies grow and develop, laundry needs change for both little ones and their families, which is why Dreft introduced a line of laundry products that are specially designed for different stages of babyhood including Dreft Stage 1: Newborn; Dreft Stage 2: Active Baby and Dreft Blissfuls.

Dreft is partnering with popular reality TV couple Sean and Catherine Lowe from “The Bachelor” to celebrate their new role as expectant parents and share their beautiful, messy journey of “amazinghood.” Sean and Catherine Lowes’ parenting journey and partnership with Dreft commenced at their Dreft “Loads of Love” baby shower (on April 27th) – where the couple was showered with all the love, support and essentials needed to prepare them for the arrival of their precious new baby.

When asked about their baby shower registry, Sean and Catherine have noted that Dreft Newborn detergent was a must have. Their parents used it, their friends recommended it, and the smell of freshly washed baby clothes has made them even more excited for the little one’s arrival.

Over the next year, everyone can share in the Lowe’s journey through #Amazinghood by following Dreft on Facebook, Instagram and Twitter where Sean and Catherine will be sharing exclusive content and messy memories.

I remember my baby showers very vividly. Some of my favorite gifts included some really simple items really. My daughter still to this day has her first baby blanket.

Here are some awesome baby shower must haves:

1. Dreft Gift Basket
2. Blankets
3. Baby towels and wash cloths
4. Toys
5. Bottles

  • Dreft was a big part of our lives when we had a baby. It was nice to know we didn’t have to worry about our baby’s clothes.

    Whenever I got to a bridal shower, I give the mom diapers and wipes. You can never go wrong.

  • I got a bottle of Dreft when I had my youngest and it was the perfect gift! You do some much laundry with infants and it was great to have some baby specific detergent.

  • I love Dreft! the smell is unmatchable! The basket is adorable!

  • I never used dreft. I think when my daughter was a baby, I used the All Clear and Free… or whatever that is. This is a great package to win for any new mommy.

  • I loved using dreft for my first daughter! This looks like an amazing prize package!

  • I always used Dreft with my kids when they were babies. I didn’t use anything else and I always get Dreft as a baby shower gift. 🙂

    What great ideas. I like giving draft, diapers, wipes, lotion stuff that you can use for a while. Everyone seems to give clothes so I like giving something you can use tight away or save for later.

    I love deft!!! When my daughter was itty bitty that’s what we used just in case she had sensitive skin.

  • This is a great idea. I remember receiving a small laundry basket with a bottle of Dreft for my oldest. I thought it was a great baby shower gift!

    I love this idea. It’s always something they’ll need. You can get clothes second-hand since they grow sooo fast!

  • Dreft is definitely a must have at a baby shower. It was the only detergent that I used on my sons’ clothes when they were babies.

  • Can my sister have another baby shower for baby # 2? LOL

  • My favorite shower gift to give are diapers. You can never have too many! Thanks for the giveaway.

  • You guys are a great-looking couple and I am sure you will make equally great parents!
    There are some good tips here for baby showers – I like the Dreft gift basket.

    What a great prize pack! My cousin is pregnant with her first and having a baby shower soon, so I am definitely going to look into these must-haves!

  • I didn’t know Dreft has products for baby, but I’m sure the baby products as good as other products from Dreft. Sometimes I give special coupon for baby’s item for the new parents, so they can buy what they think they still need for their newborn baby.

  • Cute clothes!

  • I love a good detergent with the right formulation that would be gentle on baby’s clothes. I will recommend Dreft to my daughter. She recently gave birth and of course, is faced with a lot of laundry!

  • I would recommend giving first time moms clothing in different sizes. This will help them with expenses now and down the line.

    I adore draft.I haven’t seen it on shelves here in Canada, but I’ve worked with them a few times and just love it. Wish I could get my hands on more!

  • I thought the loads of love was a cute name for a baby shower. Very cute post and a tiny walk down memory lane for me!

  • The items are so cute, I do not believe we have dreft in Austria, though I do wish we did after reading your post

  • Baby shower is a great opportunity to pamper the new mother. Anything that encourages her to take care of herself would be an ideal gift.

    Thanks for the great baby shower ideas. My friend is having a baby shower next month and i had no clue what to get her. I will have to make a big basket filled with these goodies for her.

  • I love getting moms plenty of towels and blankets because you can never have too many! I have more laundry now then when they get older!

  • Baby showers are so much fun. I used draft when mine were little.

  • Awww I love the cute gender-neutral lovey! I had a baby shower for all 4 kids, even though everyone was arguing that I didn’t need a shower for baby #4. I just love getting new baby clothes and those teeny little jammies make me swoon with new-baby love!

  • i love giving and getting swaddles!

  • I love Dreft and that smell it has – it always takes me back to when my daughter was a baby. Used it all of the time

  • I always do diapers for baby showers or baby washes and lotions because it’s always going to be useful ! Great and informative post

  • How cute is that basket! I want to have another baby!! I never had a baby shower – I was 35 when I had my first baby and just thought I was so past a shower! (so stupid of me now that I think of it!)

  • I love your addition of Dreft! I used it for my kids when they were little too. I love the feel and smell of clothes when they came out of the laundry.

  • Great post! I love Dreft. Smells amazing. I love baby blankets.

  • You can’t really go wrong with diapers at a baby shower at all. That is something that they will need a lot of…LOL

  • I always include a couple bottles of dreft in baby showers baskets, my best friend said the stain remover was a lifesaver!

  • When I had my baby shower for our son my hubby had a “Pamper party” and he was showered in diapers. I would have loved to have gotten laundry detergent specifically for the baby but where we lived at the time we didn’t have access to stuff like that. Heavens knows I needed it!!

  • Love these gift ideas. So practical and so cute too. Good luck with baby.

  • I love getting gifts that I wouldn’t normally like to buy for my kids myself, things like hygiene products, books and games are always great for the kids! Or clothes that aren’t newborn haha!
