Ten Practical Baby Shower Gifts Under $50!

Baby-showers are supposed to be fun, happy affairs, but struggling to select that perfect gift can certainly take the wind out of your sails!  We've all seen the endless parade of cute, slogan-laden bibs and onesies (i.e. "Party at my crib - 3a.m.!," "Do I look like I was born yesterday?,"  etc.), and while they make for entertaining baby-shower gifts they are not always the most practical items for expectant parents.  So if you are looking for ideas for fun, practical, and useful baby-shower gifts under $50 (to go with that witty onesie!), check some of our faves!
