43 best baby shower gifts that new parents will love to receive, according to GLAMOUR mums
Baby shower gifts are difficult to come by, particularly if you have zero newborn baby knowledge. But nailing a chic-yet-practical baby shower gift idea to celebrate an incoming baby boy or baby girl is likely to be top of your list of priorities if your bestie is expecting. Everyone remembers the person who gifted them the teether toy when their baby just WOULDN’T STOP SCREAMING, after all.
The struggle with baby shower gifts is that you’ve got to carefully select something functional, that’ll make their lives as new parents a tad easier, while still keeping things chic. The pressure is on, made even more intense by the fact that the world of baby essentials is ever evolving.
As such, we’ve grilled retailers on their baby shower bestsellers and spoken to our new mum friends to compile a curated collection of the best baby shower gift ideas for every budget – from gift cards right through to prams. Including mum-to-be gifts that she can use to pamper and newborn baby gifts that’ll have the bundle of joy looking seriously cute.
If it’s the full-on practical route you’re going down, consider baby clothes like a bodysuit or a baby changing bag for mums on the move. Gifts like the Elvie breast pump (also available at Amazon) are a great gift for new mums who are trying breastfeeding, while this stroller phone holder will help her stay on top of your incessant WhatsApp’ing during her daily walk.
If they’re all sorted on the baby essentials front, a Peter Rabbit teddy bear, keepsake box, milestone cards or a baby blanket personalised with the baby’s name are baby shower gifts sure to be gratefully received. Elsewhere, find deluxe unisex baby gift sets containing sleepsuits, organic cotton blankets, baby toys and tiny booties. ‘Cos is there really anything in the world that’s cuter?
