Our Top Baby Shower Gift Ideas

Need some baby shower gift ideas? We’ve got you covered.

No matter what is happening in the world, babies are still being born every day. So if you have just heard a ‘happy announcement’, you are sure to need some baby shower gift ideas. But what to choose? Here’s some tips.

Keep it in the family

Is a member of your family expecting a baby? Family members often offer to help out with ‘big ticket’ items, especially if it’s a first baby. Buying for a first child means a big outlay on buggies, car seats, cots, mattresses and nursery furniture, etc. So it’s a good idea to network with family members to help ease the financial strain on the parents-to-be.

Budget buys

If you’re not flush with money, you can tailor your gift to suit your budget. Our ClevaMama gift section offers items from less than €10 upwards. We’ve got plenty of cute and practical gift ideas to choose from. From Bamboo Baby Washcloths right up to our award-winning ClevaPure Salt Lamp, there is sure to be something to fit your budget.

If you’re still not sure, here’s a few more ideas to inspire you:

Clothing: For such a tiny human, babies can go through a vast amount of clothing in their first year! With spit-ups, throw-ups and the occasional ‘poonami’, a baby can go through several changes in a day so buy a bundle of clothes in a range of sizes. Such a useful gift idea.

Babycare hamper: Hit your local supermarket and gather all those changing bag essentials – nappies, cream, wipes, baby bath, shampoo and more. Add a few ‘extras’ like bottles, soothers, bibs and a cuddly toy, pack in a changing bag or basket with a bow. Boom! A gift that’s bound to be a hit.

Photos: One thing you can be sure of when a new baby arrives is that there will be LOTS of photos! You could have some made into a photo album or if you get a really good one, have it printed onto a canvas. There are lots of online photo apps to help you order these. If you prefer the professional touch, buy a voucher for a baby portrait photoshoot so they’ll have a memory to treasure forever.

Something for Mum: In the excitement of the new arrival, Mum can sometimes be overlooked.  A voucher for a massage, pampering session or a spa day can make a thoughtful gift.

The gift of time: If you can’t afford a gift or want to offer something different, give the gift of your time. A promise to babysit, bring a cooked meal or sit with baby while Mum can have some ‘me time’ can be really appreciated. It’s one thing that money can’t buy.
