The Perfect Baby Shower Gift Guide

If you're looking for a baby shower gift then chances are, you want your present to be thoughtful, useful, and unique. Parents always remember who gifted them the essential item that entertained or helped feed their little one, even better if it bought them back some much needed time and energy!

Below is our round up of the best presents for little ones and parents. From cute toys to practical items that they couldn't imagine living without, our baby shower gift guide will give you plenty of inspiration.

1. Muslin Cloths

As any new parent will know, you can never have too many Baby Muslin cloths. If you're unsure of the parents-to-be's style preference, opt for a neutral design, such as John Lewis' grey starry pattern muslin cloths. Perfect for mopping up spills, drools or tears - these soft, square cotton clothes are sure to come in handy.

2. Changing Mat

Sometimes practical presents are the best, and if one thing is for sure, babies require a lot of nappy changes. Make changing time comfortable (and stylish) by gifting the parents this cute mat from Done By Deer. We particularly like the Sea Friends design, which has a waterproof surface that makes it easy to wipe and clean.

3. Sleep Suit

Sleep is a hot topic when it comes to babies. Help make bedtime cosier with a comfortable sleep suit. It's no surprise that French brand, Petit Bateau, makes even dressing babies look effortlessly cool. We love this cute velour sleep suit, the ideal material for pyjamas as it keeps babies nice and warm.

4. Dualit Bottle Warmer - Single & Double

When it comes to a gift that's essential, easy to use, multi-functioning and fuss-free, Dualit's Single Bottle Warmer & Double Bottle Warmer deliver. Dualit's warmers are designed for sterilising, defrosting, and warming baby formula, baby food and breast milk. The electronic control panel ensures that food is at an optimal temperature, whilst the sterilising function means that parents can rest easy knowing that 99.9% of harmful bacteria has been killed - plus, if you keep the lid closed, bottles will stay sterile for up to 24 hours.

To name but a few of the sumptuous products this kit contains, there's two balms and oils (for baby and for mum), a baby bath & shampoo, a mother's bath oil and more!

6. Dualit Steam Steriliser

It's no secret that when you're a parent, time is precious. Give a bit of extra time (and energy) back to parents with Dualit's Steam Steriliser. It has four steaming and drying options and will sterilise up to six bottles in as little as 15 minutes. Just about enough time for a cat nap! Dualit's innovative Steam Steriliser kills 99.9% of bacteria keeps items sterile for up to 24 hours when steriliser is kept sealed.

In addition to bottles, accessories such as teats and soothers can be placed in the upper rack to sterilise alongside the bottles.

7. Soft Plush Toy

Jellycat are known around the world for their luxuriously soft toys. We love that there are so many designs to choose from, from cute bunnies, to lovely lions - there's even a bashful turtle. Whichever option you go for, the little one will be sure to treasure it.

8. Dualit Baby Food Maker

Dualit's Baby Food Maker is a helpful kitchen assistant that steams and blends wholesome meals for babies, quickly and easily, adapting to each stage of development. Parents will love the simple design, with one dial that controls the texture of your baby's food - from smooth purées to chunkier meals, making it suitable for the weaning journey and beyond. What's more, parents won't need to worry about the cleaning, as the parts are dishwasher friendly. With all the cleaning up that they'll already be doing, this will be music to their ears!

9. Baby Sleeping Bag

MORI are known for their soft organic fabrics and high quality products, and their Clever Sleeping Bag is no exception. Crafted with organic cotton and bamboo fabric, which is breathable and thermoregulating, once the parents-to-be see how cosy their little one is, they'll be wishing they had an adult-sized one for themselves!

10. Baby Carrier

While Artipoppe Baby Carrier's is certainly a generous gift, it's unique and comfortable design warrants the price tag. It could be a great joint present, if you choose to team up with few fellow baby shower guests. Light, easy-to-use and suitable from newborn up to two years, this gift means that convenience doesn't have to come at the expense of style.
