If you’ve been nominated to put together the baby shower hamper for a pregnant colleague, why not mix and match a set of stylish baby milestone cards, a soft cotton wrap, and cuddly toy in coordinating colours to make newborn photos a breeze.
What should I buy for a baby shower gift?
The choice of baby shower presents will depend on your budget, as well as how well you know the parents to be. Smaller, unique new baby gifts, such as baby milestone books and teddy bears that are given with love and thought are sure to become treasured items.
If you’re looking for something more on the practical side that’s not clothing – nappy cakes, change mats and swaddles make the perfect gift that’s sure to be used and loved.
If someone you know is having a second baby it’s often a great idea to buy something for the big brother or sister to keep them entertained while mum is caring for the new bub. This can be helpful because the new baby is less likely to need as many new things.
What do you buy when you don’t know the gender?
If the baby’s gender is a surprise, a gender neutral gift is the perfect choice. Look for colours that will go with everything, like soft greys, greens and peach tones, or a classic mono-tone in black and white.
Or why not take the opportunity to buy something for the new parents, like a newborn photography voucher, a ring sling or stretchy wrap for carrying the baby, or a session with a lactation consultant?
How much should I spend on a baby shower gift?
The answer depends a lot on how well you know the parents, and your budget. At the end of the day, it’s not how much you spend, but the thought you put into finding that special new baby gift that will be remembered and treasured by the new parents.
If it’s a work colleague or distant relative, why not pool your funds and create a low cost/high style baby shower gift basket with a snuggly blanket, comforter toy and bib set?
If you’re close, it’s a lovely chance to splash out and welcome the new arrival in style with something pampering for the new mum, like a hospital bag essentials box or new mum pack.
