Top 10 Baby Shower Gift Ideas
Finding a baby shower gift can be tricky… how do you find something original and useful that the new parents won’t already have? Here at Smart Gifts, we’ve created a list of the top 10 most popular and exciting new baby shower gifts currently on the market in the UK.
This is a great gift recently catching our eye on the baby shower market... a handmade Baby Bouquet - a quirky twist on a traditional choice. New parents will be inundated with endless bunches of flowers, so Cot2Tot & Beyond have created a unique alternative consisting of clothes for the new-born instead! In a selection of colours (blue, pink and unisex yellow), and containing all the essential baby clothing items, it’s a gift that both delights the eye and surprises too.

Balloons create an awesome party environment with their celebratory feel, and Bubblegum Balloons baby shower selection is especially wonderful. Instead of the traditional, standard foil design, their transparent balloons cleverly reveal beautiful coloured feathers inside! And to top it off, their beautiful tail design is hand-crafted and they offer you the option of personalisation too – it’s the perfect baby shower gift.
Aurelia Skincare have recently released a stunning New Mummies Gift Set, filled with organic, healthy products for the mum-to-be to indulge herself in after restless nights and tiresome days. The hamper is also equipped with an adorable teddy for the new born too, making it the perfect duo gift for mother and baby! Shop for New Mummies Gift Sets here.
With the excitement of the new mum’s developing pregnancy and anticipation of the baby’s arrival taking the limelight, sometimes the dad-to-be can miss out on gifts at the baby shower – which is traditionally considered a female get-together… But we feel it’s important to involve the dad too, so we’ve come across a brilliant gift to surprise the man of the house with! Spark Clothing’s baby changing male-bag is both stylish and practical, available in a range of colours, and can be personalised for a thoughtful touch too! Shop for yours here.
An obvious choice for the baby shower is of course clothing for the new-born, but we recently came across something extra special… the most adorable baby grow at Ella James! In a beautiful cream print, the little outfit features wings to ensure the new-born looks as angelic as possible! You won’t be able to resist. Shop Ella James.
We also can’t take our eyes of Tuppence and Crumble’s beautiful range of Star Wraps. Both practical for keeping the little one warm and making them look extra, extra cute… they’re both a fun and helpful gift. You can never have too many baby blankets! Shop for yours here.
A quirky gift we’ve discovered at Intwine is their brilliant Baby Advice Cards, which would make for a fun game at the baby shower. Share out the pack of 10 and get each guest to fill out their little nuggets of advice for raising a baby – it’s an interesting and thoughtful way to create beautiful moments at the pregnancy party!
8. Another unusual gift, but definitely necessary for the pregnant mummy, is Quirky Gift Library’s high quality Bed Socks. Specifying the material to suit your recipient and presented and delivered in a stylish gift box, they’re a great thoughtful present to ease the mum-to-be's sore feet after a difficult day walking with bump! Mum-to-be Bed Socks.
Designed to congratulate the "World's Most Amazing Parents" this unique cookie tin is filled with a dozen delicious cookies. It's a great gift idea for cookies to be shared at the baby shower and also refilled time and again! Both Mum and Dad may just need a bit of sustenance to keep them going through all those sleepless nights. Buy yours here.
And last but not least, we are loving Rosie Robin’s stylish New Parents Wall Print for the nursey. Available in lots of different colours, it features a beautiful message you can personalise to showcase key pieces of advice for the new mum and dad! With up to 15 lines available, you can make quite the comprehensive list for the parents to remind help them through raising the little one.
