A baby shower is the perfect way to share the new parents’ excitement and joy as they get ready to welcome their little baby to the world. As well as being a great excuse to catch up with friends and loved ones, baby showers give everyone an opportunity to spoil the mum-to-be, to pass on time-honoured advice, and to help make sure the new parents are prepared for the birth of their newborn baby. For such an important milestone event, you want to make sure you choose a stunning gift that the new parents will love.

There’s lots to consider when choosing the perfect gift for a baby shower. Every family is unique. So the baby gift you choose needs to be practical, while still reflecting the individual style and preferences of the new mum and dad. Whether you’re looking for a traditional baby shower gift, a quirky gift for a modern mum-to-be, a timeless keepsake, or a practical baby gift to help get the nursery ready for baby’s arrival, Gummy Babies has inspirational baby shower gift ideas to suit any family.

Timeless Baby Shower Gifts

You can’t go wrong with a gift that will be treasured and used for years to come, especially a gift that can be handed down to future siblings. Furniture items for

baby’s nursery make impressive baby shower gifts such as our very popular Kyogle Cot.  The Kyogle Cot from Mille Kids ticks all the boxes when it comes to picking a cot for your nursery such as style, affordable, easy assembly, Australian Standard and much more.

Getting together with a couple of friends to purchase a larger, group gift for a baby shower is a wonderful way to give the new parents a quality gift for baby.

The gorgeous TikkTokk Royal High Chair also makes a stunning addition to the nursery and is a baby shower gift that will be loved and used for years to come. Made from natural European Beechwood timber, this attractive baby high chair will match with any décor. The adjustable seating and safe 5-point harness makes it a practical gift that will be used for baby’s first meal right up to the toddler years.

Nursery Gifts for a Baby Boy or Baby Girl

If the parents-to-be have announced the gender of their baby, it can be fun to choose a baby shower gift specially to suit a baby boy or a baby girl. Classic blue or pink baby gifts can individualise baby’s room, and it’s even better if your gift adds a touch of whimsy and fun to the nursery.

The super cute and adorable 3 Sprouts Storage Bin is a quirky nursery storage bin featuring a fun elephant design. In bold blue for baby boy and a pretty pink for a newborn girl, these versatile cotton canvas storage bins will be used for nappy storage, a handy linen bin for baby wraps, or even for toy storage as baby grows. Cute animal designs are a gorgeous addition to any baby’s room.

Gender-Neutral Baby Shower Gifts

Quite often, gender-neutral gifts are the easiest gifts to buy for a baby shower. The parents might choose to keep baby’s gender a surprise but, even if you know that they are having a boy or a girl, unisex gifts are always a popular choice. Gender-neutral toys are fun, versatile gifts that baby will love to play with well into the toddler years, and will also be loved by future siblings.

Kids wooden toy


Tough and durable wooden toys like the Djeco Maggy Shape Sorter are ideal for a baby shower gift. This colourful Maggy Cow will make a super cute animal decoration for the nursery. With her jiggly spring-mounted head, she’ll have baby giggling in no time. And, as baby grows, Maggy puts a cute and modern twist on the traditional shape-sorter puzzle to help baby learn to recognise shapes and colours.

Essential Baby Shower Gifts for First-Time Parents

A baby shower is a perfect opportunity to help first-time parents get all the essential baby items they’ll need to make their adjustment to parenthood go smoothly. They might already have the essential nursery items under control – like the cot, rocker, and baby swaddles, but they can always use some advice from current mums and dads on the latest baby products on the market designed to make life easier for new parents.

nappy change pad

Every experienced parent has a hilarious (or terrifying!) change-time story featuring a rolling baby or a messy surprise. The Bumbo® Changing Pad has come to the rescue. This innovative baby change mat is a soft and comfortable, portable change pad that’s suitable for use from the start. It’s easy to wash or wipe clean, has a convenient restraint belt, and can be used on the floor or on a traditional change table. It’s the baby essential granny wishes she’d had, and the perfect baby shower gift for modern mums and dads.

Kids bed throw

New parents can never have too many bedsheet, quilt covers, or linen. One of the absolute best ways to enjoy time with a newborn is simply to snuggle together under a soft and cozy blanket for a nap or storytime. The Gummy Babies 100% cotton Spotted Throw is a perfect gift to ensure busy parents will enjoy spending quiet moments with their precious baby. Available in red and green, this stylish baby blanket makes a wonderful decorator item to add a touch of colour to baby’s room, while also being a gorgeous and practical gift mum, dad, and bub will all enjoy.

Budget-Friendly Baby Shower Gift Ideas

A fun baby shower gift that doesn’t break the bank is always a plus. If you’re looking for a practical gift that you know the new parents will appreciate, a baby teether is the ideal choice. Baby’s first tooth might look adorable, but teething isn’t much fun for baby (or for mum and dad trying to comfort a teething bub). The cute elephant themed Alvin Teether is made from natural rubber to help soothe baby’s sore gums. Plus, it looks totally adorable, so it makes a wonderfully cute, budget-friendly gift for a baby shower.
