When thinking about gifts for the expectant mom choose items that she will really appreciate after baby’s arrival. Here are five favourite gifts for moms to receive at their shower.

1.Huggies New Baby nappies

Nappies are a very thoughtful and practical gift for any new mom. Mom may have stocked up on newborn nappies so she’ll be delighted to have some size 1 or 2 nappies for when baby is a bit bigger, which happens in the blink of an eye!

2.Newborn photoshoot

This is a real spoil for the new family and a gift that will be appreciated forever as the photos capture the precious newborn memories. This is a special moment captured in a newborn shoot by Robyn Davie. Photoshoots are also important at the baby shower, especially these 5 photos you must take.

3.Photo frames

A simpler gift than the shoot is a photo frame. Mom and dad will have so many photos of their precious baby and will definitely appreciate some frames to display their favourites. We love this Adler set of three frames from Country Road at Woolworths.

4.Personalised baby items

If the name of the baby is already known, a personalised item is a wonderful gift choice. Pillows, blankets or door signs are extra special when featuring the baby’s carefully selected name. Local shop Panda Love has some fantastic personalised options — this personalised pillow printed as a birth announcement is super cute!


A thoughtful gift for the mom-to-be is a set of comfortable yet stylish pyjamas that she can wear in the hospital and at home during those nights of no sleep. This Maternity Long Set from Anna-Louise Sleepwear would be such a spoil. Couple this gift with the perfect, budget-friendly pancakes and pyjamas baby shower theme.
