Baby Shower Gifts – Why Buying For Mum Is Just As Important

A new baby is on the way! Excitement is at fever pitch as you imagine ten little fingers and ten little toes. Baby shower gifts are easy to choose because we’re generally focused on buying cute little things for a cute little person. But what if the baby shower present was also a way to spoil the mama-to-be? Pregnancy is a beautiful time but it can also be an exhausting and emotional experience, so putting a little extra thought into the gift you choose is a lovely way to let the mum-to-be know you’re thinking of her, too. Here are some unique and beautiful baby shower gift ideas to celebrate and spoil the mum-to-be.

Baby shower gifts that are beautiful and practical

Spoil the mama-to-be with gifts that are as useful as they are beautiful. If she’s planning to breastfeed, choosing a gift that supports this journey is a wonderful idea. We love these reusable nursing pads, handmade with breathable cotton that gets softer with every wash. The expectant mum will love the pretty fabric designs. And to soothe tenderness, a natural nipple balm is a lovely choice. For the mum who still wants to embrace her individual style without sacrificing her fine jewellery to curious little hands, a gorgeous but durable necklace made from food-grade silicone is a great choice and a safer alternative to standard costume jewellery.

Gifts to soothe and spoil

Many expectant mums give up drinking coffee during pregnancy so why not choose a caffeine-free tea blend for her to enjoy? Tea for She offers a delicious range of organic teas created especially for women. With blends designed to boost milk production, to those created to soothe and calm, this is a gift that is just for mama. Or choose a relaxing bath soak to encourage your pregnant friend to put her tired feet up just for a moment. She deserves it!

Keepsake gifts for mama and baby

A baby journal is the perfect way to record all those milestones and special reflections as baby grows and changes. And when the journal is as gorgeous as these luxury linen-covered books from Write to Me, they’re bound to be treasured for a lifetime. And you simply can’t go wrong with an heirloom baby blanket that is beautiful enough to be passed down through generations. This is a gift that wraps a precious baby in love and then holds the memories forever.

Gifts for the hospital bag

Your pregnant friend will thank you when you gift her items that she can use during her hospital stay. This calming labour organic essential oil blend helps soothe a birthing mum, while the gentle scent brings a peaceful energy into an often sterile delivery suite. And make bub’s very first bath an extra-special sensory experience with Little Bairn Gentle Baby Wash. These seemingly simple gifts can make the world of difference to a brand new mum by adding softly aromatic and organic luxury to everyday life with a precious new baby.
