I went to a lovely baby shower over the weekend and had loads of fun browsing through online stores looking for ‘giftspiration’. There are so many gorgeous and beautiful things for babies, sometimes it can be hard to decide what to get! These are just some of my top baby shower gift ideas:
Incredibly, many of the popular supermarket brand baby washes and shampoos include nasty, toxic and drying ingredients. I noticed my daughter was getting very dry, irritable skin and then someone told me about natural and organic Weleda products. I made the switch and haven’t looked back. I wish I’d known about these skincare products when she was born. This pack would be a beautiful gift for a new or expectant mum, giving her reassurance that the skincare she is using on her babies delicate skin is gentle, organic and natural.
Putamayo kids CD’s are hands down the best kids music you will find (apart from The Wiggles of course!). Putamayo have a huge range of kids music including French, Brazilian, Latin, Caribbean and Celtic with many more albums available in English like Dreamland, Picnic Playground and Kids World Party. With so much more time being spent at home and in the car once a new baby arrives, music is a gift that can be enjoyed by the whole family for years to come.
These soft, snuggly Britt Bears are an ideal baby shower gift. My daughter was given one when she was born and she loves it so much she still sleeps with it now. It’s the perfect size, can be put in the washing machine and dryer and what’s even better – they are lovingly hand made right here in Australia. They even come in a beautiful gift box, tied with a bow – all you have to do is attach a hand written note.
This was one of the best baby recipe books I discovered. Written by two child health nurses, it’s a really easy and practical way to introduce natural and healthy food to your child. It has heaps of fantastic recipes, including banana and blueberry pikelets (which I still make for my toddler now) and salmon pasta which can be made for the whole family. The authors have just released a new ‘Toddler Tastes‘ book as well, and you can buy both books for the special price of $55. For more info, or to purchase the books – check out the Babytastes website here.
These are the most gorgeous socks for babies and toddlers and they come in a really wide range of colours and designs. They are sold in beautiful gift boxes and come in a pack of six. These girls ‘Mary Jane’ version look like your little one is wearing tiny little Mary Janes! Too cute! They are also really practical with rubber paw grips underneath, they never slip off, and wash beautifully. Peters of Kensington have them at the best price I have found, as they usually retail for $25.95.
These boys ‘Kicker’ socks are designed to look like your little man is wearing sneakers. Genius!
Happy baby shower shopping!!
