The Perfect Baby Shower Gift

Have a baby shower to go to this weekend? Wondering what to get the mother-to-be that will get her as excited as the arrival of her newborn?

Nothing to worry about! Our recommendations are just what you need to get a gift which is both useful and memorable to the mother-to-be.


The racks at all our Babyshop stores are packed with bibs, socks, muslin wraps, blankets, towels, jumpsuits and onesies. You can make a nice little hamper of all these items and gift it to the excited parents-to-be. Do remember that infants grow out of their newborn clothes very quickly and need more clothes for the following months. So, consider purchasing clothes sized for six months to 24 months.


A vibrant mobile is a must for every nursery. This remote-controlled, battery-powered merry-go-round mobile for the crib is perfect as it helps soothe the newborn to sleep. It has a relaxing light that subtly changes colour and twirling figures

There’s no end to the joy of a play mat. Bright colours, toys dangling, teether, and a soft quilt below come together to create a mini play haven for tots. This fun-filled playmat has a safe, padded play area and two arches with soft toys and teether attachments to help oral development.


Keep newborns and their parents happy with a bouncer in which the little ones can rock and roll to their heart’s content and the new parents can squeeze in a task or two while the child is wrapped in safety. This delightful bouncy seat has it all, from seven different melodies with vibrations to a soft head support and a couple of amusing soft and huggable friends which will keep your precious ones good company.

These gifts are sure to get a lot of awwws at the baby shower. So, head to your nearest Babyshop store and gift wrap one today!
