Baby showers are a special time for you to spoil the mum-to-be in your life and ensure she gets everything she needs for her baby. Here at Baby and Mumma Gifts, we do things a little bit different, we focus on the wellbeing of the mother, and place her needs at the front. Baby showers often focus on all the baby gadgets the new mum needs, from cots, to prams, to baby outfits. Sometimes the new mum and her own needs can be forgotten among all the gifts focusing on baby. So if you want to give a baby shower gift with a difference, check out our suggestions!

Best Baby Shower Gift ideas for Australian mums

1. A new Mum Hamper

Make your own New Mum Hamper as a baby shower gift with all the postpartum care items a new mum needs, or purchase one of our gorgeous New Mum Hampers ready made! Think about all the things a new mum in the first few weeks of having a baby (long after her baby shower and opening her baby shower gifts!), and put them together into a new mum hamper. You could include things like: Breastfeeding essentials, snacks, lactation biscuits, postpartum skincare, scrunchies, and heat packs. Check out our postpartum care items for ideas

2. Breastfeeding essentials

Breastfeeding essentials such as Nursing Balm, silicone breast pump milk saver, hot and cold reusable gel pack, or some reusable breast pads. These items are very useful for a new mum wishing to breastfeed, and make perfect gifts for baby showers.

3. Aromatherapy diffuser

An aromatherapy diffuser is a wonderful gift for both mum and baby. An aromatherapy diffuser can be used with essential oils to create a calming environment in the house for mum and baby. Many use diffusers to promote sleep for baby and relaxation for mum, making it the perfect baby shower gift idea for mum.

4. Lactation Biscuits

One of the most important things for new mums to have is snacks! Lactation biscuits make a wonderful snack, and great addition to any baby shower gift. Not only are they delicious, they are also nutritious and specially formulated for breastfeeding mums.

New mums always need more time for relaxation and recovery. Bath salts and soaks are a great way to encourage the new mum to have some me-time. Add them to your baby shower gift.
