5 Baby Gift Basket Essentials

Despite their small size, a newborn baby can come with surprisingly large financial pressures. Sending baby gift baskets to the new parents is a great way to give your support as well as deliver your congratulations.

If you're looking for ideas for baby gifts that every new parent needs, here are a few essentials.

Booties and Bonnets

Booties and bonnets will keep their little feet and heads cosy and warm. Hand knitted in lovely cuddly wool, choose from pink or blue. Bonnets and booties are a popular, practical gift that new babies need and new parents will appreciate.

Feeding sets

What could be more useful than a gift of baby's first feeding set? Beautifully illustrated with your choice of the classic tales of Jemima Puddle-Duck or Peter Rabbit by Beatrix Potter, this matching bowl, spoon and bib will be forever loved!

Soft Toys and Teddies

Soft toys are so cuddly and huggable, they are one of those timeless baby gifts that never goes out of fashion. Babies and parents will fall in love with seriously cute stuffed animals like Patchwork Cat, Moo Cow, or Bella and Billy the Sheep.

Something for the Parents

Don't forget the parents - they need a little pampering too! A bath and body or gourmet food basket is a really thoughtful gift that will be gratefully received by all exhausted new parents. The Mum and Baby Celebration gift basket includes a choice of wine and champagne, Camembert, Red Pepper Jelly, Ferrero Rocher Chocolates and much more.

Environmentally friendly

Send a gift box of natural environmentally-friendly baby products from the Eco Store to pamper a new baby. Parents can relax knowing that the Eco Store promotes the use of safer, healthier alternatives with their New Zealand-made baby moisturiser, shampoo and body wash.
