Best Newborn Baby Gifts

• 5 min read

If you or someone you know is expecting a new baby, there’s no doubt exciting times that lay ahead! Celebrating the miraculous birth of a new baby with unique gifts handpicked for Mum and Bub is key to encouraging positive additions to their nursery. For those who are first time mums it can be a daunting experience trying to compile a list of what’s needed before or even when the baby arrives – even if it is still so exciting! If you recently received an invitation for a baby shower, your first thought is always the perfect gift (and there are many options to choose from, but how does one know which would make the best baby gift?!). Luckily at Sunrise Daily, we’re here to make the lives of mums and their friends easier with the best suggestions on newborn baby gifts.

Baby Sleep Nest

A baby sleep nest, otherwise known as a baby pod or sleep pod, is like a little cocoon for a newborn baby to rest in. Note that not all baby sleep nests conform to safer sleep guidelines for newborns, so be sure to be discerning with your purchase and supervise at all times. However, Cocoon Baby sells ergonomic cocoons designed for use in the cot in the newborn baby’s first months, by reassuring them and helping them adapt to life outside the womb. They’re the perfect gift for a newborn!

Baby Bath

Every newborn baby needs a baby bath, and it’s always tough to make the right decision. So, if you’re looking for the perfect gift for a newborn (and Mum), a baby bath is an easy choice. KJ Essentials For Baby has an adorable and unique collection of baths and bath products to match. It’ll help make every bath experience fun, easy and memorable!

Nappy Bag

The one thing every newborn and their mums are certain to deal with: nappies galore! By giving the new mum in your life the gift of a nappy bag, perfect for carrying all the essentials, you’ll be saving them in the long run. Plus, a mum can never have enough choices when it comes to accessorising (even for newborns). So even if someone doubles up on this one you won’t have to worry! Milk and Poppy have an incredibly stylish and functional collection of nappy bags, wallets, and accessories here.

Baby Outfit

Baby clothes are a must for any growing newborn. However it really counts to give any new mum the gift of guilt-free baby clothes. Opt for organic, sustainable wear that won’t just offer the newborn in your life the ultimate in comfort, but assure Mum that even when items are out of use, they’re not contributing to landfill. Aster & Oak have an adorable collection of certified organic baby wear that is eco-friendly, non-toxic, low-allergenic and free from any hidden nasties, perfect for giving any new mum and newborn.

Baby teethers are a great gift idea for newborn and Mum. They’re used to soothe newborn babies’ gums as their teeth start coming in at around 3-7 months of age. Teething Baby Australia has an amazing collection of natural teethers. Plus, with the ability to add your own custom message/name to their teethers, you’ll trust this newborn baby gift will stay in the memory box for years to come.

Baby Cradle or Crib

A cradle is one of the most common baby gifts, and when it comes to finding the best gift for a newborn baby and mum, it can be a great way to show your excitement. A safe cradle can help lower the risk of SIDS and prevents trapping or suffocation. Baby cradles are available from a variety of locations, but Organature offers 100% organic cradles and cradle packages to make the experience as beneficial and simple as possible. You can browse their collection here.

Personalised Newborn Gifts

To give the ultimate newborn gift for a new mum, it’s best to consider something super personalised and unique, so your gift can last long after their little one grows through it. Even the most mundane of essentials can be made into a memory they’ll cherish forever with a little personalisation – and many brands offer this kind of service on their products. One Little Day is just one of these possibilities, but the personalised teethers from Teething Baby Australia are still a wonderful option for giving that extra-thoughtful gift.
