When people say you don't need much, they are talking about for the newborn.
The First Year Postpartum is best experienced when you are fully properly prepared, a baby shower SHOULD help families prepare for the full spectrum postpartum experience.
It is NOT JUST about baby, it should be very much about the Mother as well.
The root of lack in proper postpartum support is not solely focused in after birth - but the lack of necessary support to prepare for postpartum during pregnancy for both Mother and Baby.
People are often focused on unnecessary baby items instead of the necessities to support a mother through the days, weeks, months and years postpartum with newborn(s).

"These postpartum underwear saved me from my c-section incision pain. People tell you to take all the mesh underwear from the hospital when you leave but you don't and then your regular underwear sit directly in your incision and make sitting, which you're about to do 99% of the time with a newborn, so very painful. My incision became inflamed and so painful and I got so sick of wearing those mesh undies that I finally ordered these and I can't say enough good things about them. I wish I'd gotten these before I left the hospital and I will definitely tell all my new mom friends they absolutely need these asap after a c-section and probably just birth in general. BUY THESE ASAP!"

Love to dream Swaddle
When you place your baby to sleep on their back, their natural position is for their arms to go up. The Love To Dream Swaddle UP Original features a patented design that allows you to swaddle your baby with their arms up in this more natural position. The medical reason behind baby's desire to have access to their hands is that when they wake up at night, they want to self-soothe, which is simply stroking their cheeks or sucking on their hands. If they are swaddled with their arms restricted, they cannot do this, which causes them to wake, get frustrated, and try to get out of traditional swaddles. The Swaddle UP is a stretchy blend of Cotton and Elastane designed to be snug and cozy around their torso, contain baby's arms, and thereby calm the startle reflex, encouraging a long, restful night's sleep for Mom and baby. The Swaddle UP is safer than swaddling your baby with traditional blankets.
