Attending a baby shower but struggling to think of the perfect gift for that glowing mama-to-be?
Here at Livvy and Harry, we’ve attended our fair share of baby showers and learned a thing or two about gift–giving along the way, so we’ve compiled our top picks – we promise you’ll be the envy of every other guest in the room.
The Ultimate Baby Bag
While a baby bag might seem like an obvious gift, giving your lady friend a baby bag that she actually likes is another story! Is it practical and organised, while remaining chic and simple? Livvy and Harry purpose-design baby bags that fuse functionality and style – they’re the ultimate gift for a stylish lady who values quality and is about to have a heck of a lot of stuff to carry!
Not quite sure which baby bag to get for that special mama in your life? Let her pick for herself with a Livvy and Harry Gift Card, or better yet – Livvy and Harry offer free exchanges, so mamas can change their mind.
A 'Mummy Essentials' Hamper
It sounds a bit ‘been there, done that’, but a hamper of mummy must-haves is always popular for the lady about to step into the unknown realm of motherhood. Half-fill a large box or basket with baby essentials like nappies, nappy cream, baby wipes and natural shampoo and conditioner, then add a stack of your mama-to-be’s favourite things – chocolate, fancy wine, candles, bubble bath and more.
A Beautiful Robe
Every woman needs a robe in her life, but new mamas need them more than most. From those ‘too big to wear actual clothes’ pre-birth days to late night feeds and lazy days at home with bub, a super luxurious robe is guaranteed to make you feel at least 35 per cent better. Check out the range of silk and cotton robes and sleepwear from Sleeper.
While this might sound lame to some, if your mama-to-be is the kind of lady who’s into matching outfits, this is the ultimate gift to give her Instagram followers some serious baby envy.
If you’re pooling with some friends and can afford to splash out, Burberry have a lust-worthy range of kids clothes, so mum and bub can match in signature Burberry plaid. Or, for a little bit of onesie heaven, Hanna Andersson makes onesies for bubs, girls, ladies and everything in between – trust us, this is cute overload!
Is your mama-to-be into all things eco-friendly and planning to use cloth nappies for bub? A Nappy Service is the ultimate practical gift and will save a heck of a lot of washing. How does it work? Once a week (or more) a nappy service attendant will collect bub’s dirty nappies, wash them and return them... like magic! We LOVE this cow print cloth nappy from Cottontail Nappy Services in Australia.
