25 Awesome Baby Shower Gifts for All Budgets

If you get stuck trying to think of the most awesome of awesome gifts for a mum-to-be, then you certainly need this list.

Collated by a group of new mums, these are the ultimate gifts that will have you on top of the ‘Favourite Aunty’ list – forever! We also have spread out the price, so you can afford one of these at any budget at all!

What To Consider When Choosing a Baby Shower Gift

If the Mum-to-be has signed up for a Baby Registry, and you find a gift that suits your budget, THAT is the perfect gift.  Then you know Mum is getting exactly what she wants or needs on her Baby Shower.  Most Mums-to-be will put the details of their baby registries on the invitation – so make sure you read it thoroughly.

If there isn’t one, then it’s time to really think about what she might like.  Here are some points to consider:

  • Are you buying a gift for the Mum? Or the baby?
  • Is there a theme to the baby shower that might like to match your baby shower gift to?
  • What does Mum and Dad like to do?  Can you incorporate their likes into your baby shower gift?
  • Do you go a practical gift? a sentimental gift? Or a indulgent gift?

You Can’t Go Wrong with a Practical Gift

If you are finding it hard to decide what to buy, go practical.  Being a new parent is exhausting, so an gift that you can buy that will make the new parents lives that little bit easier will always win over something shiny and pretty that never gets used.

Here are some very practical baby shower gift ideas:

A Maternity Gown

Maternity Gowns are the newest thing in the labour ward – so why not grab one for the beautiful Mum-to-be.  The gowns are meant to be worn during labour and then give Mum something pretty, practical and memorable to wear in hospital during her stay.

Prices start from $40 – $100 for a beautiful maternity gown.

Where do you get them?
