After soaking in the initial news of a family loved one or friend announcing their pregnancy, our minds suddenly go “what gift am I going to buy?”
Well don’t worry, we’ve curated the perfect baby shower gift guide here at Polly and Co to help discover the right gift for that special expecting mother!
1. Baby Clothing
Babies tend to grow very fast in the first 12 months, so they will need a lot of clothing. Keep in mind these few things when shopping for clothing:
- The season they are born
- Sustainable/good quality clothing
- Practical (no mother wants to be undoing a heap of buttons in the middle of the night!).
If in doubt essentials are always a good place to start eg. Singlets, bodysuits and onesies.
2. Sleeping and Bedding
Babies also spend most of the time being swaddled and sleeping. So some very useful items include:
- Cot/Bassinet sheets (be sure to check their mattress size)
- Sleep suits
- Baby blankets
- Dummies (if using)
4. Baby Bath and Body
Babies love bath time, there is a wide range of items to help assist at bath time including:
- Bath and Body Wash
- Lotions and creams
- Baby hair brush
- Baby towel
- Baby washers
- Or even a bath toy!
There are many bits and bobs that will be helpful for a new mother that some may overlook. Discover our wide range of feeding accessories including silicone bibs, bowls and spoon sets. Other items include:
- Change mats
- Nursery decor (canopy, woven moons)
- Milestone discs
6. And lastly, Gifts for mum!
Don’t forget to spoil the expecting mother too, after all she’s the one doing the hard work. Think of gifts that will help her to rest and relax, items such as:
- Bath salts
- Diffuser/essential oil
- Herbal tea
- Affirmation cards or journal
- Or even a new water bottle or cosmetic bag she can take with her to the hospital!
