Baby shower gifts


As a first time mumma and with lots of friends with babies or having babies, my favourite gifts for Baby Showers are:

Untitled #11

Books - We love anything by Mem Fox but our all time favourite is On The Night You Were Born

Sleep suits - woombies, love to swaddles or ergo pouches are a new mum's lifesaver

Toiletries - go with something natural where possible like Gaia, nappy rash cream like Desitin or Curash, baby oil, baby sun cream,

Toys - Lamaze or B. toys are our favourites

Boon products like their drying grass/garden are cute but very practical as are their feeding range of spoons, bowls, plates and sippy cups

Feeding products - babies start solids anywhere from 4 months and need a whole lot more gear to get going so things like little pots for freezing purees, smock bibs, little diner placemats, spoons, Inglesina chair

A lambskin - we use bub's under the fitted sheet in Winter and also on the floor all year round to sit/play/tummy time on

Clothes - my favourite to buy are Sooki Baby snapsuits otherwise singlets and undersuits are always appreciated. Knitted pieces like cardigans are also beautiful and appreciated.

Bright Starts Cart cover - you may laugh at first but this is ideal for shopping with bub once they can sit up and gives some padding and germ protection from supermarket trolleys. It also has little pockets to hide sultanas and dummies and keys plus loops to atatch toys so they don't get tossed to the ground every step

A bumbo or if putting in with a group, a jumperoo

A nappy pail with lid for soaking - one of the best gifts ever

Hooded towels and washers with embroidered names/animals/designs

A digital thermometer - we like the Braun one but I hear the touch one is good too

Nappies and wipes - you can never have too many but I recommend sticking with brands like Huggies Pure or naturals (my little boy got terrible rashes from any other)

A voucher to have hand/foot impressions or newborn photos done

A baby sling, ergo or bjorn

A highchair - the one from Mocka is the same design as the Stokke and Leander but less than half the price

A Gro Egg to act as both a nightlight and monitor room temperature - especially helpful in those early and uncertain days of how to dress bub appropriately

Gifts for mum - a Glasshouse candle, ABA membership/book, some lansinoh nipple cream and gel pads, nipple shields, a breastfeeding basket with healthy snacks magazines a journal and pen etc, a toiletries pack pjs or robe for hospital

What is the best gift you received and what is your go to gift for a new baby?
