Best Baby Shower Gifts?

Baby Showers are a fun way to ‘shower’ a new mum, or any mum-to-be, in some baby gifts in preparation for baby’s arrival.

A baby shower often has a few silly games, party food, gift giving, laughing and usually some babies are in attendance too!

What is a good gift? There are literally millions of searches each month on search engines for baby shower gift ideas! I asked for baby shower gift ideas from a range of online shops.

Let’s see what a range of Mum and Baby sites have to recommend as a popular baby shower gift idea from their experience:

Jodee from BabyBaby recommends:

The BabyBaby Feeding Pillow has been a favorite among mums since its inception eight years ago. Its unique ‘U’ shape ensures this feeding pillow moulds to baby and you, easily, comfortably and correctly. The larger than most surface size means you can use it to feed your infant longer than smaller feeding supports allow. Filled with polystyrene beans which are incased in their own inner means you control the height and comfort of the pillow depending on your needs and that of your child. The BabyBaby Feeding Pillow comes in machine washable, pre-shrunk 100% patterned cotton top with black cotton base, or easy to launder anti pill polar fleece.

  • Great for breast feeding and establishing correct feeding position for mother and baby.
  • Supports mothers back during feeding preventing future back problems.
  • Due to correct feeding position for baby, helps prevent feeding associated problems.
  • A ‘Must Have’ for Breast feeding twins simultaneously.
  • Supports the back of support people holding baby – great for partners and children.
  • Supports baby while she is learning to sit.
  • Back support for bed ridden adults.
  • Machine washable and dries in no time.
  • 100% Money Back Guarantee.

Emma from Wrap ‘Em (closed) recommends:

A Ring Sling!

Obsidian from Obsidian Star recommends:

While we usually think of goodies for the new bub in a baby shower gift, what about the mum! Soft, colourful, reusable cloth breastpads and Post partum pads would make a lovely addition to a baby shower gift.

Denise from Mama Moo recommends:

A Lucky Farm animal by Happy Horse – a bit of softy for a nice cuddle and comfort, a bit of luck for the journey (for both the baby and the folks!)…

Charndra from Part Time Nappy Free recommends:

Like others have said, I’d recommend a versatile Ring Sling for a new mum to snuggle baby up close. Wonderful. Even better to show her how to use it with a doll, or a nearby baby!

Kyra from Bubbalooba recommends:

Our Gift Packs are popular for baby shower gifts – they contain a matching modern cloth nappy, bib & shirt and can come in a variety of sizes!

Kirsten from Mums Little Outlet recommends:

The Woombie – these come in a gorgeous array of colours and are perfect for new mums to “zip up” their babies and know that they are safely wrapped and cocooned for a safe sleep.

Kendall from Australian Baby Supplies recommends:

Australian Baby Supplies sells a gorgeous new mumma pack which includes a funky wipes case, bib and burp cloth.

Laura from Cloth Nappy Co recommends:

A basket of 5 different types of cloth nappies so the mum-to-be can find what’s right for her and her bub.

Nyree from Kodomo recommends:

Clearly I’m going to have to suggest a reusable nappy…

Lara from Extremely Nappies (closed) recommends:

I always say cloth nappies are the best gift. From my blog  (Nappies on a Budget): Everyone always brings presents to a baby shower (even if you tell them not to). If you ask for Extremely Nappies as gifts, you can get a full set of nappies from your closest friends. They’d spend the same money on the cute little suits anyway, which might only get worn a few times. The gift of a nappy is a gift that keeps giving: they’ll be used every day for years and save them heaps of money.

  1. I got lots of bibs. Having non drooly babies that did baby led feeding, they were just not ever used. I donated them to a local women’s shelter in Canberra.

  2. I got lots of lotions and potions, many from popular brands. I don’t think I used any of them, my baby’s skin just smelled too gorgeous on its own to cover it with chemicals!
