How to choose the perfect baby shower gift

Choosing a baby shower gift is such a joy! Who wouldn’t want to buy a gift for a new baby. Here are a few questions to ask yourself when choosing the perfect baby shower gift.

Is this their first baby?

If the person you are buying for already has other children, they probably don’t need as much as if this is their first baby. If it is their first, they will likely be starting from scratch so you will have more choice with what to buy. If you are buying for a second or third child, opt for gifts that are more practical or functional.

What is your budget?

Budget will be a huge determining factor when deciding what to buy. When it comes to a new baby it is so easy to buy all the things. But that isn’t helpful if you are on a budget. You could get an adorable stroller toy for as little as $10 or you could buy a car seat which is upwards of $400 as your baby shower gift. Know your budget and stick to it.

Can you pool your money with friends?

If you only have a small budget, perhaps pool your money with friends so that you can together buy a bigger gift. It is the thought that counts but baby shower gifts are about helping new parents with items for the new baby as much as they are about celebrating the new addition to the family. If you pool together, you can buy a larger item that the family needs while not going over your individual budget.

How much space do they have?

If the parents live in a home that is tight on space, a baby mobile that just clips onto the cot is a perfect gift as they won’t need to find a place for it. If they have more space, a rocker or bouncer will be a gift that they will use time and time again. Consider the space available, especially if you are buying larger items that require floor space.

What is their style?

Many people these days have a minimalist style, while there are others that love bright and fun colours. Whatever the style, we have baby shower gifts to suit. Whether it is a neutral baby toy or a bright play mat. Our products are loved by mums and babies alike so you will know that the gift you are buying is sure to become a firm favourite.


FAQs

What is the best gift for a baby?

At Mother’s Choice, we have some great practical and stylish baby gifts. Soft by ‘position’ to view our most popular baby gifts right now. We have baby gifts under $50 and baby gifts under $100 to suit all budgets.

What is a unique baby gift?

It can be difficult to not double up with other newborn gifts that an expecting parent may receive. For something truly unique, opt for a personalised gift designed especially for baby. Practical baby shower gifts are always appreciated, such as mittens to keep baby warm or educational toys to aid in growth.

Which baby gifts could I buy for a baby shower?

If you’re attending a baby shower and don’t know the gender of the baby just yet, it can be tricky deciding what to buy. At Mother’s Choice, we stock a huge range of unisex baby gift ideas. Toys and mobiles are always a thoughtful, timeless idea that can be passed onto another baby when the time comes.

Do you give a gift when a baby is born?

If you’ve already given the new parents a baby shower gift, it’s common to ask if they would like a gift when their baby is born. Most people will choose to give a larger gift for a baby shower and a smaller, simpler gift to welcome the new baby. Some may do it the other way around and give a small gift at the baby shower, and a larger gift to pamper mum following the birth. If you choose to give a gift when a baby is born, personalised gifts with the date of birth and name are always a huge hit. Of course, it’s not necessary to give a gift when a baby is born - it’s completely up to you!

What baby gift should I buy for a Christening?

When buying a baby gift for a Christening, it’s usually a good idea to select something that can be kept as a memento. A Christening marks a milestone in the life of both the child and the parents. Crystal figurines, personalised money boxes or silver photo frames make excellent Christening baby gifts.

What are good baby gifts for a first-time mum?

For first time parents, practical baby gift ideas include outfits, baby booties or useful toys. A bottle of bubbly can also help the new parents celebrate this important milestone. Nappies, newborn baby wraps, teething toys and other essential baby items also make great gifts for new parents.

What are the best educational baby gifts?

Educational baby gifts provide stimulation and can significantly benefit the baby during their crucial development stages. Choose an educational baby gift that helps develop motor skills, or introduces the concepts of shape, colour and texture. Educational baby toys can help develop colour recognition, memory and hand-eye coordination. Select from our range of developmental toys for the best educational baby gifts.

Are baby books good gifts for a newborn?

It’s never too early to start reading to a newborn, and books that provide stimulation make great presents. Begin the tradition of bedtime stores early with baby board books and picture books with gorgeous illustrations. Although the baby can’t read just yet, colourful pictures and touch-and-feel books are a great way to begin recognising sounds and the world around them.

What are the most practical gifts for a new baby?

Clothing is one of the most practical gifts for a new baby. They’ll not only be protected from the cold with warm baby clothes, but the new parents will love dressing up their newborn in the latest fashion. Onesies, baby singlets and stylish baby outfits all make excellent gifts.

What are some nice sentimental baby gifts?

If you’re looking to give a sentimental baby gift, a keepsake gift is a great idea for baby shower gifts or to welcome a newborn. Framed prints of the baby’s hand or feet can make excellent gifts, as well as an imprint kit to capture the special stage of the baby’s life.
