FAQs about baby gifts

Have you got a question about baby gifts that needs answering? Read on – that's what this section is for!

What is the best gift for a newborn baby?

Newborns are going through a major developmental phase that can be quite demanding for new Mums and Dads. So, in our opinion, the best new baby gifts make Mum and Dad's lives a little bit easier. Here are some excellent gifts that are also practical:

  • Muslin baby wraps
  • Baby clothes
  • Pram liners
  • Bib sets
  • Face washers (we stock a lovely set from Bubba Blue)
  • Baby change mats
  • Nappies
  • Baby blankets and sleep sacks
  • Baby bottles

Families of newborn babies usually need multiples of all of these items, so it doesn't matter if someone else ends up buying the same gift as you.

What is a unique baby gift?

One unique and wonderful baby gift that will truly pamper the new parents is a baby hamper. Gifts Australia's baby hampers come with a range of gorgeous, high-quality baby items, including clothes, shoes, fun toys, books, practical gifts, sweet treats, and champagne.

We offer baby hampers for boys and girls, as well as gender-neutral hampers for parents who are on team green (meaning they are waiting until birth to find out the baby's sex).

Do you get a gift for a newborn?

Yes, it's customary to give a newborn a gift to celebrate their arrival earth-side. In some families, newborn gifts are given as Christening gifts, and in others, they're given when you meet the new bub at home for the first time.

Newborn gifts can be toys, clothes, shoes, practical baby items, or anything that the new parents or baby will need.

What are some good baby gifts for a coworker?

Here are some great ideas for baby gifts for a coworker:

  • Blocks in different colours and sizes
  • Sweet treats
  • Shoes
  • Blankets, muslin wraps, and sleep sacks
  • Food delivery gift vouchers
  • Nursery gadgets (bottle warmers, nappy bins, humidifiers, white noise machines, baby lights, etc.)
  • Bottles
  • Toys

What do you get someone for their first baby?

What are the most practical gifts for a new baby?

What do you buy a 6-month-old baby?

At six months, babies are starting to teeth, so a teething toy like Sophie la Girafe: The Original Teether is a safe choice.

Another special gift that's perfect for a 6-month-old is a set of Wooden Animal & Number Blocks. At six months, many babies like picking up blocks and knocking down stacks of blocks. As they grow bigger, they will learn to stack them.

The Very Hungry Caterpillar Book & Toy is also a great gift for a 6-month-old. Baby can play with the caterpillar plushie while a parent reads the story to them.

Many of our hampers for little ones also feature organic cotton grow suits. The Jemima Hamper For Newborns is one such hamper (though it includes a cotton bib that's not organic).

Are baby books good gifts for a new baby?

Yes! Reading books to a baby helps with their language development, so books aren't just precious gifts – they're educational, too. The best books to bring joy to babies while expanding their minds are those with bright colours, pages they can touch and feel, and engaging stories.

Gifts Australia offers a large range of beloved baby books from iconic authors like Mem Fox, Sarah Allen, and Graeme Base.

Do you give a gift when a baby is born if you already bought a present during the pregnancy?

Yes, if you're close with the parents, it's pretty normal to give a newborn gift when the baby is born on top of any other gifts (including baby shower gifts). However, it's also pretty normal for your second gift to be a smaller, less expensive item or even something simple like a pack of nappies.

If you aren't close with the parents (like you're a coworker, neighbour, acquaintance, distant relative, etc.), it's perfectly fine to just send a card.

What do you buy a baby when they have everything?

If you're looking for a baby gift for a baby who has it all, we recommend a gift voucher from Gifts Australia. We offer gift vouchers for $50, $75, $100, $200, $300, $400, and $500. We've got a gift for every baby and parent, so they'll be sure to find something they like in our range.
