Baby shower gift ideas – 9 great gifts for the baby
There are plenty of baby shower gift ideas out there, and deciding what to get for the new family member can feel overwhelming. We’ve listed a few gifts for the baby that truly are must-haves.
While babies don’t need bibs straight away, they’re always useful to have at home for when it is time to start trying solid foods. Bibs come in an array of colours and help keep at least a little bit of the mess at bay.
The same goes here as for the bibs. A dinnerware set is a great gift because it will be needed when it’s time to start self-feeding. And let’s not forget that it also makes a super-cute gift!
Clothes are a popular and always welcome gift. Our top tip is to give baby clothes in follow-on sizes, as babies grow so quickly.
Staying on top of everyday tasks can be tricky with a newborn. So a baby bouncer is perfect when parents need a moment to have their hands free. The great thing about BabyBjörn baby bouncers is that they rock naturally from the baby’s movements, while stimulating development and motor skills.
A bouncer toy is a cute gift to add if someone else called dibs on gifting a bouncer (or if you feel like gifting both!). The great thing about bouncer toys is that they help stimulate the baby’s development and are super fun for the baby to play with. You can find our collection of bouncer toys here.
A baby carrier is a great aid for parents to meet their baby’s need for closeness while still getting things done. It really is a necessity that makes the biggest difference.
This is a baby shower classic! If there’s one thing babies always need, it’s nappies. Rolling nappies and shaping them into a cake makes a thoughtful and fun gift. Are you wondering how to make one? Check out our article on how to make a nappy cake.
8. Travel cot
A travel cot is a great way to keep an eye on your little one while still letting them play and work on their motor skills. We can almost guarantee that both parents and baby will appreciate this fun gift.
9. Baby Thermometer
Babies will have a fever at some point, so a baby thermometer is a must. The new digital thermometers are super easy and safe to use and are always good to have on hand.

Gifts ideas for mums and dads
Let’s not forget to show the expectant parents some extra love! A gift specifically for the parents-to-be is both sweet and thoughtful, and will likely be very much appreciated as they adjust to becoming parents. Check out our best baby shower gift ideas for mums and dads below.
A thoughtful basket for the parents
Put together a nice basket with things that you know the parents-to-be will love. Maybe their favourite snacks, tea flavours or biscuits, paired with something fun like cinema tickets.
Gift card for a meal delivery service
Having a baby turns your life upside down. Many parents live in the baby bubble at the beginning, and it may be tricky to find time for cooking. A gift card for a meal or food delivery service is a great gift that most parents would absolutely love.
A home-cooked meal
The same goes here as for the previous tip, since cooking easily slips far down the priority list. Cook and bring some tasty food like lasagne or casseroles that are easy to keep in the freezer and just pop into the microwave when hunger strikes. The parents will thank you, we promise!
A cosy getaway
It’s always nice to give the expectant parents something that’s just for them. A cosy idea could be to give them a day at the spa or a night at a hotel where they can spend time together before the arrival of their little one.
Help and favours
Baby equipment is all well and good, but the most precious gift you can give someone is your time. Hands-on help and favours from friends and family are gifts that will be highly appreciated, both for first-time parents and those becoming parents once again.
