So you’ve heard the exciting big news! There may have been long hugs, kisses, smiles and even a happy tear or two. The experience is going to be an amazing adventure for the new mum and a great opportunity for her loved ones to be as supportive as they can. Of course, there will also be an adorable baby shower! When it comes to picking the best baby shower gifts, you need to be sure that whatever you decide will be of great use while also being unique as well as thoughtful. In some cases, you might receive an invitation with very helpful details such as baby registry information. If you don’t want to stick to the baby registry, there is a wide world of newborn baby gifts out there, to choose from! In fact, we have quite a few winning choices right here, at Shopbaby!

Here are a few great ideas to get you started,

Sophie the Giraffe

Having been around since 1961 and with a sale of over 50 million worldwide, it’s safe to say that Sophie the Giraffe is an excellent gift for a newborn baby. Sophie, made with natural rubber is designed to be the perfect teething toy that helps soothe gums and to stimulate baby’s developing senses. Designed in France, this handmade product is decorated with food-grade non-toxic paint to make it extra safe for teething babies. Perfect for chewing, cuddling and squeezing, any mum-to-be would love to receive Sophie the Giraffe as a gift.

Baby Prints Wall Frame

An impression of a newborn baby’s hand or foot, displayed in a beautiful frame is an excellent decorative addition to a nursery. Offered in grey or white, the Baby Prints Wall Frame provides easy instructions and a non-toxic air-drying material to create the impression. With no need for baking or mixing, the impression is created fast and easily to create an adorable display that will last a lifetime. Suitable for boys and girls, this is a thoughtful and elegant gift that any mum-to-be will appreciate.


We all know that newborn babies love to be swaddled! The Love to Dream Swaddle is a fantastic gift that features patented wings that enable the baby to sleep with her arms up as they most often do. This position allows babies to self-soothe and to sleep more peacefully and longer, meaning more sleep for mum and dad. Made with a comfortable blend of cotton and elastane, the swaddle is available in cool and ultra sheer fabric. If the new-mum prefers classic ergopouch swaddle, the beautiful designs of Aden + Anais are certain to be a great choice. Made from 100% cotton muslin, the breathable, soft and versatile swaddles can be used for a wide variety of purposes. The beautiful prints are perfect for mums with an eye for modern design and the fabric is made to keep baby comfortable without overheating. Bonus point – the high quality fabric gets softer with each wash!

Sleep Sounds for Baby

Sleep is definitely something any new mum would appreciate; when baby sleeps well, mum sleeps better! Products that offer peaceful and relaxing sleep music or sounds are certain to make excellent and much-loved baby shower gifts. For instance the Cloud B Peaceful Panda that provides 8 soothing sounds including lullabies, tranquil music, mother’s heartbeat, whale songs, ocean waves and spring showers also doubles up as a cuddly companion. Attached with a Velcro tab to the baby’s crib, the Panda can be machine washed and dried with the sound machine easily removed.  Made with allergen and toxin free, completely baby-safe materials, the Cloud B Peaceful Panda is an ideal choice for a boy or a girl. Other versions of the product include Cloud B Tranquil Turtle, and the Cloud B Sleep Sheep.

Baby Monitors

Hands down, these are an excellent choice! A baby monitor will be functional, helpful and highly valuable for new parents. To make the gift even more valuable, choose an option such as the Oricom Digital Baby Monitor that works as a nightlight, soothing music and sleep sound box as well as a temperature monitor. What more can a new mum ask for?

Baby Shower Hamper

Baby shower hampers can be chosen to present the new-mum with a great selection of items they need. You can purchase these pre-made or create your own with your own special selection. You can pick a basket or a baby tub with items such as blankets, soft toys, mobiles, nappies, wet wipes, pram pegs and so much more. The possibilities are endless. The best thing about creating your own baby shower hampers or gift bags is that you can customise it to the parents’ liking. Are they eco-conscious? Do they have a thing for minimalism? How about their interests in entertainment? You can take all these factors into consideration when you create your hamper and create something unique and certain to be much appreciated.

A Gift for Mum!

So far, all the gifts we have mentioned are all about bub! How about a little love for mum? Here, at Shopbaby, we have a few great options for mums-to-be. The Belly Belt is a great choice for mums who are struggling to find clothes to keep up with their growing bump. The Belt kit comes with slide and button fastening to allow the mum-to-be to wear her clothes during her pregnancy without having to invest in too many maternity clothes. The kit comes with three colours; black, white and denim to allow for easy coordination. Another great pick is a nappy bag that doubles up as a style statement. These are a great value and will be of great use for many years to come and mums-to-be would absolutely love the opportunity to be stylish while having everything they need in one bag!
