Mariah Carey Baby Shower: 5 Gifts That Make the Cut

Jeanne Sager

Mariah CareyMariah Carey fans have been celebrating the diva's pregnancy alongside her since she finally came out of the closet and admitted she's pregnant. 

It's hard to tell she and husband Nick Cannon are officially expecting their first baby with each other -- everyone's getting in on the action.

But everyone knows the best way to truly get something for yourself out of somebody else's pregnancy is to indulge in a little retail therapy. Ahem, for the baby of course.

Chances are the rest of us won't be invited to Mimi's baby shower, but a little trek through Carey and Cannon's wish list can give you ideas for your own little one. 






Hello Kitty baby beddingA die-hard Hello Kitty fan, if Carey has a girl, what do you think the chances are this kid's life will be Sanrio free? Bedding makers Lambs and Ivy will keep you from running around for all the pieces: this four-piece set ($69.99) will fill the crib. Now if only they made it in Mimi size.

band in a boxNick Cannon got his start in the biz when his grandfather gave him a box of instruments at age 8. But with genes like these, there's no reason to wait. Mom and Dad can watch their little star emerge with a Band in a Box from Melissa and Doug ($18.11).

rock star burp clothsYou don't have to be a diva's daughter to be indulged. Even his/her spit-up will be amazing to Mama and Daddy, just like every other miracle to come. Make sure it's cleaned up with a customized burp cloth set ($18) worthy of a rock star.

spa baby tubMom's a diva -- is there any chance this baby won't be lavished with a little something extra? That means bath time will be spa time, just as the name of the Spa Baby Tub ($44.99) promises.

bling converseBaby won't be ready for some of Mom's Lollipop Bling, but mini Converse covered in Swarovski crystals ($69.99) seem Mimi-esque enough to be on her baby's feet. Maybe a Mommy and Me pair is in order.

Is this baby destined for stardust and glitter?
