This article about baby shower gifts was last updated in 2021.

Baby showers are getting more and more popular. They are a great way to celebrate an imminent birth, to get together with friends (before mum-to-be is too tired!) and receive some gifts to help with the huge amount of paraphernalia a new baby requires!

We’re all for gifting the essentials but it can also be nice to gift mum and yet-to-be-born bub something a little special to mark the exciting journey they are on.

For this reason, we’ve created a list of baby shower gift ideas to melt the heart.

Happy baby showering!
