Baby Shower Gift Ideas

Lately we've been spending our weekends selling, and gift-wrapping baby shower gifts. We've put together a list of gift ideas for you to make present buying a bit easier. We've tried to include a mix of popular gifts, thoughtful gifts, useful gifts, gender neutral baby gifts, and gifts under $40.

Baby Journal

Our baby journal selection is beautifully classic. The Write to Me Baby Journal has a soft grey linen cover, it has pages to enter all the special information and milestones from pregnancy to pre-school. We love that this baby book is gender-neutral, and it is nice and simple, with no pictures of other people's babies.

The Fox & Fallow - Baby Journal  ($59.90) is also one of our favourites and has all the same great things, just different designs.

You Simply Can't Spoil a Newborn

This book from popular sleep consultant Dorothy Waide is a thoughtful gift that's sure to come in handy. It's a good book to give parents before the baby is born, so that they have time to read it!

Bath Time!

Gifts for bath time will always come in handy. Soft bath towels are so good to have. We have a beautiful range of these including the Kip&Co Boysenberry Swirl Waffle Baby Towel ($39.90) and Over the Dandelions Hooded Towel ($54.90). Another great idea is a baby hair brush. Check out our super soft Haakaa Goats Wool Baby Hair Brush ($26.90) here.  Even bath toys, which won't be used for a newborn, can be put aside for use in a few months' time.

Clothes 

One of the most popular baby gifts is clothes. Some people like to buy them a little bit bigger, so that baby can grow into them - just make sure if you do that you buy them for the right season. Our Wilson and Frenchy range is proving to be an ideal baby shower gift.

Blankets

Another popular gift, baby blankets have many uses: on the bed of course, over the pram, as a play mat on the floor. Parents would use a baby blanket every day. Check our our range of baby blankets here.

EcoSprout Organic Cotton Sweet Dreams Baby Bassinet Blanket- $49.90

 

Sophie the Giraffe

This toy is an absolute classic. Made in France since the 1950s, from natural rubber and food-grade dyes, it's safe to chew and the shape of the giraffe means that baby can get the toy to each and every sore tooth and gum. 

 

 

Baby Mirror

Babies travel in the car facing backwards, so it isn't easy for parents to see the baby while they're driving. Attach a mirror to the headrest above the baby's seat and now parents can see baby, and baby can see their parents, and themselves. Our BeSafe baby mirror is nice and simple, and it's a great price-point too - just make sure you remove the protective film before you use it.

Baby Shoes

A baby gift that has universal appeal is baby shoes. We love the Pretty Brave shoes because the packaging is absolutely beautiful, perfect for gifting. Our Kip & Co Booties are super adorable, coming in various colours and patterns, ready to keep baby's feet warm this winter.

Baby Toys

One of our favourite ranges for soft baby toys is the Jellycat range. These toys are super soft, but at the same time kind of weighty, so it's perfect to cuddle.  Teething toys are also great baby shower gifts. They're super useful when babies start teething and both soft and flexible enough to play with in the first few months.

Travel change mats

It's a change mat, it's a clutch, it's got a place for you to keep your spare nappies and wipes. The Roundabout from Pretty Brave is the baby item we never knew we needed, but now desperately need.

How to stop your child unbuckling their seat belt

February 15, 2022 3 min read

One problem that some parents will face at one time or another is how to stop their child from unbuckling their own seat belt. It can be a problem for children who are sitting in a booster seat that uses the cars three point seat belt. There are products on the market that will slide over the buckle so that the child can't press the button, kind of making them kiddy proof. We don't sell those products because we worry that the average person in the community wouldn't know how to work them at first, potentially slowing things down if you were involved in an
