Baby shower gifts: 13 amazing ideas from mums

baby shower gifts

Baby shower gifts can be lifesavers for new mums. When you’re expecting a baby, it’s easy to be overwhelmed by the enormous amount of products available for your bub. So help a new mother out by shopping for a practical gift that she’ll use and treasure for years to come, such as these incredibly thoughtful presents suggested by North Shore Mums.

Angela: A nappy cake! [a selection of baby goods shaped into a ‘cake’]. I put it on a large foiled baking tray. I used a burp cloth as a blanket and stashed singlets and clothes under it. I used wraps & a sheet set to secure to the box of nappies, all tucked in neatly. It’s fun to make something you know will be used

Jo: First Aid Kit

Elena: A maternity + newborn photo session voucher, great present for capturing those precious moments!

Odette: I like to give something for when the baby is bit older – such as a nice cookbook with baby/toddler food recipes and a plate/bowl set

Louise: Electric thermometer

Alanah: Something for mum! Friends gave me a float tank voucher and something for bub, but the bit for me was so memorable and appreciated! Another gave me some delicious hand cream, knowing your hands will never be washed as much as they are when you have a newborn

Simone: The Women’s Weekly birthday cake book!

Zolie: The most handy was a portable white noise music player that you can hook to pram or cot

Cathy: I like to give a nursing cover, pram liner and matching pram organiser. I find ours so useful everyday!

Clea: My bestest, favouritest gift ever was a little sign that went on our door saying ‘ shhhhhh, baby sleeping’, most people are very respectful of it! And those that weren’t deserved the earful they got!

Aimee: Milestone cards are fantastic, I’ve been getting these for friends

Nicole: My favourite and most used gift (if for a first time mum) was a gift basket with useful stuff like baby Panadol, baby Vicks, a thermometer etc

Ally: Most useful gifts – Love to Dream swaddles, medical kit including baby Panadol, nail clippers, toothbrush and paste, thermometer. Most unique – baby scales (for weighing baby at home), blackout blinds (transportable), and portable high chair.
