The best baby shower gifts

Buying a gift for a new arrival can be a daunting task but also is so wonderful as it is such a special time for the expecting parents and for their loved ones around them.

Baby Celebration Gift ideas

My brother is expecting his first child and I am extremely excited about becoming an aunt. Soon, I have the wonderful task of choosing a gift for my sister in laws baby shower, so I thought I’ll share some of my research with you. It is such a special time for the new parents and for their loved ones around them especially when there will be a new member of a family, how exciting!

Gifts for Baby

A great baby shower gift idea is baby beauty and bath products. Before the baby arrives new mums love to prepare the home with all the many things they need to keep baby clean and happy. Luxury and premium skincare brands have expanded to offer baby and child ranges that give parents a clean and organic option, that are softly treating their skin.  It is something reassuringly simple that we look for, for ourselves so why not our children? Perhaps the mother to be has a favourite skincare brand, do some research and see if they offer a baby gift range.

You can request a bespoke baby shower gift ideas through my online gift finder or maybe you like one of these suggestions. Just click on them to buy and I will do the rest!


COWSHED – baby gift set – £30

Cowshed’s Baby Cow Organics range is designed to pamper, protect and soothe the baby’s delicate skin. This gift set makes very useful present for a new born baby.

What better way to entice a reluctant baby into the bath than with a talking Panda, Cat or Rabbit puppet washcloth? A must have for every new parent.

TIFFANY’S – silver baby brush – £260

This beautiful brush shines with elegance. A precious keepsake set to become a heritage piece.


Gifts for mum

I also like to attend baby showers with a gift for the mother to be, as they are the ones doing all the hard work for now and deserve to be showered with gifts. As a mother myself I know the importance of treating yourself before the new arrival.

Space NK is a good place to start your search. Their make-up luxurious and they sell an array of home pampering products to use during your pregnancy and after the baby is born, including the wonderful Mama Mio range created by obstetricians to help look after your tired skin. I always think an item from Chanel is the ultimate treat, the packaging is chic which adds to the thrill of the gift, a colour pop nail varnish to brighten up those ever disappearing toes is always Welcome!

Another nice treat for the mum to be is a book so she can spend some time relaxing with her feet up, something which will open her mind to the world she is about to enter. Here are my favourites:
