Baby Shower Gift Ideas

We know attending a baby shower can be new and sometimes daunting to a lot of people so our aim is to help make it easier. Sometimes there’s a dress code and games to get involved with on the day, but read our guide to help make bringing a gift for the baby shower a lot easier. There are some cute and some practical options for your baby shower so have a read and see some suggestions we have. We also have tired to include some unisex gifts as well as gender specific depending on what the parents have chosen to share with you before the baby shower.

Some cute muslin wraps are an easy handy gift to give. They originally stared as swaddles you would wrap your little one in, but have diversified to be used for stroller covers, clothing protection when burping, a clean ground when changing on the go and much more. You can buy them individually or in three packs typically with lots of design and colour options. See some of our favourite options below or the collection here.

 Buying a swaddle is also a helpful gift as newborns spend a lot of time sleeping in the first few month. So having plenty of swaddles is always helpful for new parents to reduce the amount of washing they have to do. Love to Dream is a popular brand that do have a cute unique arms up design that swaddles a baby while also having a natural arms up position like in the womb. Lots of cute designs to choose from! 



An adorable blankie, lovie or comforter (whatever you like to call it) is always a sweet gift for a newborn. With so many animal option and even bamboo options too.

A soothing night light is a more unique gift for a baby shower but can help sooth a little one while also a gift that can be used for years to come as they grow and sleep independently. Some also have sounds or changes in their lighting for more effects.

Another handy but beautiful gift is a hooded towel or washers set for the newborn. Many parents have a night time bath a part of their little ones bedtime routine so sure to get plenty of use!

Other practical but adorable gifts for down the road once the little one gets to the teething stage is all the interesting different chew toys for them. The Mombella mushrooms have been particularly popular with its simple design that babies and mums love. But there are also so many stackers, rings and silicone products that are great gifts to be given.
