Baby Shower and New Arrival Gift Guide

Baby Shower and New Arrival Gift Guide

image_blog

It can be tricky to find the perfect gift for a baby shower or new arrival.  Do you go with something cute or useful? Probably useful, but what’s the “most useful”?  Sure, you can never have enough of items like kids clothes, bibs and muslins, but there are so many more items that, especially first time parents, really need.  You also want to keep their little one safe and healthy, and contribute to a better future for them!

Here’s the good news: With this gift guide, you don’t have to be a parenting expert to pick out a good present, because we’ve done the heavy lifting work for you!

WHAT MAKES A GIFT SUSTAINABLE? 

We look for several things when deciding if a product should be in our gift guides. 

1) What is the gift made out of? The gift we add must be made from eco-friendly materials that are easy on the planet. 
2) Who made the gift? The maker behind the item is just as important and should be compensated fairly for their time. 
3) Does the brand implement sustainability within its entire business? We don’t want surface-level eco-friendly products; we want brands who genuinely care about sustainability and enforce it throughout their business wherever they can - from shipping to giving back. 
4) Is the gift practical & something they can use for many years? We’ve all been given gifts we could have done without, but we find every gift we add to these lists are practical and going to be loved for a very long time. 

So here are our top sustainable gift suggestions for babies and new mums, remembering these products are available for purchase and direct delivery in many countries around the world, so contact me for enquiries outside of Australia.
