Top 10 Baby Shower Gifts
Don’t want your gift to get lost in the fray? Want to give something useful and durable, something the new parents will treasure and baby will love? Look no further than these ten gift ideas from Lil’ Monkey Cheeks!
Want to know what a baby gear expert (Maman Loup) gives all the expectant parents in her life? Well, this is it, the organic cotton Öko Creations Hooded Bath Towel. This is not your ordinary, thin, useless baby towel from a big box store. This is a thick, luxuriously soft, baby-sized towel that is absorbent enough to dry an adult. It’s the only towel the new family will ever want to use, and it’s durable enough to be passed down from child to child. Made in Quebec by a company that prioritizes ecology and ethics, the Öko Creations Hooded Bath Towel is sure to be a cherished gift for years to come!
Milestone photos are all the rage: make it easy for new parents to take a sweet photo for each of baby’s first 12 months on a beautiful backdrop that doubles as a swaddle! Lulujo’s First Year Blanket & Card Set comes in a variety of designs to please any family on your list.
Warm toes make for warm the hearts of any family who receives a pair of Jack’s Mama’s handmade wool slippers. Easy to put on even the squirmiest feet, and designed to stay put even in the baby carrier or stroller, lots of colourways available, including plenty of gender-neutral options if the parents are Team Green!
Babies love to grab and suck on toys and toes, so why not offer a sweet bear or bunny made with only natural materials? Designed in Europe, PEPPA Bonding Dolls are made from cotton stretch terry, and their heads are full of naturally antibacterial wool.
Function meets fashion with Funky Fluff’s trendy hanging pails! These are great for cloth diapers, but perfect for regular laundry too. A total space saver, these hanging pails can be used in lieu of a laundry basket on the ground, and easily attached to a door or closet. If the family are frequent flyers, these are also awesome for travel!
Instead of giving a sweet and tiny newborn outfit that will fit for two weeks, why not offer a pair of trendy, Canadian-made Grow With Me Pants that will fit up to at least one year. These pants “grow” by unrolling the soft, stretchy waist bands and cuffs, and come in adorable prints and solids.
Give the gift of safe and organic skincare for the most precious of bundles! The Anointment Baby Skin Car Gift Set includes a bum balm, Calendula soap and delightful baby oil for a soothing and moisturizing massage after bath time.
The key to keeping baby warm? Stop that heat from escaping a bald head in STYLE! Love Squared Slouchy Beanies will guarantee that this new baby will be the hippest on the block. With so many colours and prints to choose from, it’ll be hard to settle on just one. So, definitely get a few, including matching ones for mom and dad!
Baby might not have chompers right away, but it won’t be long! Handcrafted from sustainably sourced Canadian maple, each teether is coated with completely natural and safe beeswax and olive oil. Parents will love the mustache or the camera shapes, while babies will find them easy to grasp and soothing on the gums!
Babies make messes … constantly. Make clean up a little greener and a little easier with Colibri organic cotton wash cloths! Great for cloth diapering, but also for after meal clean up, bath time or as handkerchiefs in the diaper bag. Gift them in a Colibri reusable pouch for a completely zero-waste gift!
And if you’re still not sure what to bring to your next baby shower, Lil’ Monkey Cheeks also offers gift certificates!
