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?

TIP ONE:

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).

TIP TWO:

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.

TIP THREE:

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.
