The months have flown by and suddenly it’s time to think about your baby shower. However you choose to celebrate, one thing is for certain, you and your baby deserve to be spoilt (and rightly so!). Sometimes it’s nice to have a little creative inspiration so I’ve put together my ‘Top 10 Stylish Baby Shower Gift Ideas’ that are sure to tickle your fancy.
1. Woollen Collective 'Yours Truly' Throw
This beauty, the Woollen Collective 'Yours Truly' Throw ($471) is just for you. Handcrafted with extremely large knitting needles (no joke, they weigh 2kgs!) and made from Australian Super Fine 100% merino fleece wool, it’s the perfect plush addition to your home or to snuggle the day away with your babe.
2. Scent of Home (SOH) Candle
Guaranteed to sooth the soul, these SOH Candles ($70) are a divine baby shower gift for any soon-to-be mum. Its intoxicating scent will calm your mind and body. Infused with tones of sugar, caramel, mandarin and lemon, and packaged in modern metallic casing, it’s a hassle-free way to bring a little Zen into your busy life.
3. Kip & Co Easel Nightie
There's nothing better than fresh new PJs which is why this gorgeous nightie from Kip & Co ($55) makes a perfect gift. Made from 100% cotton with an oversized comfy fit, the nightie is ideal for padding around your home in and a must for your hospital bag.
4. Bella Casa Linen Organic Wheat Heat Pack
Every expecting mum will feel the aches and pains of pregnancy at one point or another. The Bella Casa Heat Pack ($33) is a wonderful way to soothe those muscles and aid sleep. Made from 100% organic Australian Wheat, it’s a must have baby shower gift. Try adding a little lavender spray for extra indulgence.
5. Mammahood Nursing Post Natal Compression Tank
These post-natal nursig compression tanks by Mammahood ($59.90) are a lifesaver during the early hazy months of motherhood. Available in white or nude, you can dress them up or down. Plus they work like a maternity bra, so great for nursing (no underwire of course) and provide support and compression for the abdominals, sides and lower back.
6. ErgoPouch Ergo Cocoon Summer Swaddle
The perfect swaddling solution for summer, the ErgoPouch Summer Swaddle ($37) allows you to keep your baby snug and secure without the extra wrapping fuss. Bright and cheerful, and made from stretch organic cotton, it also comes with poppers in the arms to convert into a sleeping bag.
7. Fictional Objects Black Palm Fitted Cot Sheet
Offering style and practicality, the Fictional Objects Black Palm Fitted Cot Sheet allows you to keep your baby snug and secure without the extra wrapping fuss. Bright and cheerful, and made from stretch organic cotton, it also comes with poppers in the arms to convert into a sleeping bag.
8. Goldfinch Pram and Stroller Baby Blanket
A warm and snug baby blanket is a must for all new mums and bubs and is the perfect accessory for cuddles with mum and new visitors. With so many baby blanket brands out there its always so lovely to receive a truly unique blanket rather than the one from a hospital gift shop. That's why we love the Goldfinch range (from $78) of beautiful baby blankets featuring bold and lively prints which bring warmth to your home and little ones.
9. BZBX Tower Chair
Beautiful in every way, the BZBX Tower Chair ($599) is an irresistible investment piece and the ultimate baby shower gift idea. Its sleek Danish design is made from the highest quality leather, steel and wood, and comes in Black, Black/Neutral, Grey/Neutral and White/Neutral. Not only is it suitable for use up to 7 years (with adjustments), it has also been approved to Australian and New Zealand safety standards.
10. Bella Buttercup Play Bar
The Bella Buttercup Play Bar (from $270) is not only educational and functional, it’s a gorgeous play item for your baby that you won’t ever want to put away! Made in Australia and boasting a whole host of environmental credentials, the Play Bar comes with eight toys hung from natural toned straps, each designed to help your baby learn and develop.
