The ultimate baby shower gift guide

Gift Guide: Baby Shower

New mums have lots, and we mean LOTS, of shopping to do to prepare for the arrival of their bub. After all, they are bringing a whole new human into this world! Great baby shower gifts go a long way towards making Mum’s list much shorter (although it’s still pretty long). With so much to choose from, where do you start?


Babies grow into crawlers and toddlers very quickly. Some babies will never see four zeros so play it safe and buy clothes for 6-12 months+.

Here’s a guide to baby clothes sizes: 000 (0-3 month olds), 00 (3-6 month olds), 0 (6-12 month olds),  1 (1 year olds).


If you do decide to buy for when bub is a little older, remember to think what season it is likely to be when the item does fit. For example, if you go for a size 00 or size 0, consider what the weather is likely to be 6 months after bub is born.


Consider practicality – it might be cute, but that jumpsuit with a dozen buttons is going to end up driving everyone cuckoo.

Whether you’re after something practical, pretty, cute or a keepsake, here’s our handy guide to help get you the best baby shower gift.
