Baby shower gifts are a joy to buy and you’ll find loads of gorgeous options in our collection. Discover unique baby shower gifts like a personalised keepsake box to keep the baby’s special things in, or a beautifully hand-knitted crochet jumper with the baby’s name stitched onto it. And more practical baby shower gifts like handmade muslin wraps made from the softest cotton, or wipe-clean baby bibs and feeding mats.

The Hardtofind team has curated the following list of baby shower gifts to help you find the perfect gift for a baby boy or girl:
And don’t forget baby shower gifts for new mums! In these pages, you’ll also discover some thoughtful new mum gifts, from stylish (yet practical) nappy bags to new mum gift boxes full of pamper products like relaxing bath soaks and soothing teas. Other options include a cosy knitted jumper or a new pair of warm, fluffy slippers - anything that makes an expectant mother’s pregnancy more comfortable.
Important when choosing the perfect gift for a baby boy or girl is to consider the mother’s needs. Is this her first child? If so, a practical baby shower gift will be appreciated. Here’s where you can stock up on sippy cups, baby clothes, change mats and other useful baby accessories. If the mum-to-be already has most of the things she needs, consider a keepsake gift for when the baby is older, such as a personalised height chart to hang behind the door or a set of personalised building blocks.
Another tip is to consider the baby’s nursery decor and find something to match. We love nursery wall prints, fun wall stickers and organic cot linen.
Consider when the baby is going to be born as well. If it’s winter, warm clothes and cosy baby blankets are ideal. And for summer babies, choose something a little more lightweight like a delightful hand-embroidered singlet or or a sweet little sunhat.
And finally, consider the baby’s gender. If you know it’s a boy, a little blue outfit or a personalised toy train are special baby shower gifts to consider, and our favourite baby shower gift ideas for a girl include anything pink (of course) or fluffy, such as a personalised bunny toy.
A personalised gift is not only thoughtful, but will become an heirloom that can be cherished as the baby grows. We have loads of gift ideas within these pages that can be customised with the baby’s name or a meaningful message. Top picks include a hand-engraved silver baby bangle or a set of personalised ‘teddy bear’ cutlery that can be used in the toddler years.
The mum-to-be will love everything you've planned for her special day including games, menus, decorations, and memorable baby shower gifts. Host the event during the last two months of pregnancy (in case the baby arrives early and before the expecting mum gets too tired!). Invitations should be sent at least three weeks in advance to a small group of friends and family. Typically, only women are invited but it’s fine to include the men, too! The menu would be light finger food and pregnancy-friendly, like chicken sandwiches, mini quiches and cupcakes (of course!). A lovely idea is to match the decorations to the table setting, so decide on your theme and carry the colour scheme through from the tablecloth to the dinnerware, flowers and balloons. Once your guests have enjoyed a cup of tea (or glass of champagne) and some food, seat everyone in a circle for the opening of the baby shower gifts!
And remember to think about baby shower thank you gifts for guests, as it’s always nice to send everyone home with a small token of your appreciation. A personalised cookie or a sweet-smelling candle are nice ideas.
