30 Best Baby Shower Gifts That Will Last a Lifetime (2024 edition)

Finding the perfect gift for a baby shower can feel like a daunting task. With so many choices available, it's difficult to know what items would be best for celebrating the new arrival. Luckily, you don't have to feel overwhelmed. This article has compiled some of the best baby shower gift ideas to make your shopping experience easier when shopping for baby gifts in Australia.

What is the Best Gift for a Baby Shower?

Baby showers and gender reveal parties are a popular Australian tradition to celebrate a Mum-to-be. This occasion is also an opportunity to share your love with gift giving. 

Generally speaking, baby shower gifts are for the unborn baby. Many people tend to give practical gifts such as nappies, wipes, baby blankets, or baby clothes. While these gifts can be very practical and useful, we would suggest choosing a gift that can be more meaningful to the newborn, the mum-to-be or both the baby's parents. It's also not that difficult to provide a thoughtful gift. 

Jared Davis, the Marketing Director from Profile Australia says, "When it comes to gifting for a baby shower, presents like baby clothes, bibs or toys only last a short time. However, a more personalised gift that represents a special moment or memory, can genuinely last a lifetime. For example, photo frames and baby photo albums are ideal for this and can be a thoughtful way to share your love and excitement with the Mum-to-be."
