What should be included in a memorable baby hamper?

Author: Nicole Adler   Date Posted:24 July 2016 

At Gifts Australia, we believe that Baby Gifts should always make you go “aaah…”. The arrival of a new baby is a very precious occasion and must be celebrated, and what better way to do this than with a gift, specially and thoughtfully selected for the new arrival, and possibly for the proud mum and dad as well?

While it may seem that newborn babies don’t do much apart from sleeping and eating, in fact they are able to take in a lot of their surroundings from very early on. This means that creating a warm, loving environment is particularly important. Smells, sounds and sights are also stimulating, and will help baby’s development, so gifts for baby to wear or to have around them in their room, such as soft toys, blankets, music boxes and mobiles are ideal.

Gifts Australia offer a huge range of Baby Gifts for babies ranging from newborn to toddlers, from budget-conscious to no-expense-spared. If you have just received word about a new arrival in the family, or if you are organising a gift for a baby shower or for someone who is leaving work to go on maternity leave, one of our Baby Hampers may be just the thing to give as a gift! Don’t forget that at Gifts Australia we can send Baby Gifts across the whole of Australia, including to hospitals, and we offer a gift wrapping service too, as well as cards.

All our gorgeous Baby Hampers and baby baskets are filled with high quality items such as toys, treats and accessories. If you know whether the new arrival is going to be a boy or a girl, you can select gender-specific hampers, but there are a number of neutral options too that will be suitable for all newborn babies.

Take a look at the adorable Peter Rabbit Hamper with gorgeous Beatrix Potter illustrations and a soft plus Peter Rabbit to cuddle, which is suitable for both boys and girls. When baby is a little older, he or she will enjoy playing with the building blocks as well as listening to the enchanting stories about our hero, and learning about words, shapes and numbers!

Would you prefer to give something practical? Then look no further than our Natural and Organic Baby Hamper in the Baby Gifts range.  With 100% pure and natural products, the items in this hamper will be perfect for bath time, when baby is teething and for general day-today use.

Want to include a cuddly teddy? Then take a look at the Teddy & Blanket Baby Boy Hamper (also available in pink), which also includes some luxurious rose petal confetti soap, which will be appreciated by the new mum when she gets time for a long soak in the bath.

What about a gift for Mum and Dad?

Regardless of whether this is a first baby, or if mum and dad-to-be are experienced parents, your Baby Hamper will be especially well received if it includes a treat for the grown-ups as well! The Ollie Owl Celebration Baby Hamper includes cute gifts for baby, as well as a bottle of award-winning Brown Brother's Methode Traditionelle King Valley Pinot Noir Chardonnay NV sparkling wine, to allow mum and dad to toast the arrival of the new baby.
At the top end of the range, the indulgent and luxury Moet & Sophie Baby Gift Hamper is suitable for boys and girls alike with organic cotton garments in white, an elegant Sophie la Giraffe teether, and quality chocolates, biscuits and a 750 ml bottle of Moet & Chandon Brut Imperial NV Champagne. Let the celebrations begin!

If mum and dad don’t enjoy a glass of bubbly, why not give them a Letters To You Keepsake Book, a great and thoughtful Baby Gift that they can fill with notes, pictures and even a yearly letter to their child – a gift that will grow into a wonderful heirloom.

Other occasions that are perfect for a Baby Hamper

Of course it is a great idea to give Baby Gifts at the time of birth or even before, but once baby has made an entrance into the world, there is no need to stop thinking about giving a Baby Hamper. On the occasion of Baby’s first birthday (or even half birthday at 6 months), as a Christening present, for baby’s first Christmas, the options are many and varied. The gorgeous Pink Knit Blanket & Sophie Hamper (also available in a dark blue option) combines a beautiful 100% cotton blanket for use in a cot or pram and a Sophie la Giraffe teether, and will make a perfect gift on any of these occasions. If you are looking for a more traditional Christening or First Birthday / Christmas gift don’t worry – Gifts Australia has that covered too! Cutlery sets, cups, silver ornaments and picture frames plus many more Baby Gifts are available in the Christening Gifts section.

Other members of the family

While shopping for Baby Gifts on Gifts Australia, remember that older brothers and sisters van often feel a little forgotten when all attention is focused on the new bundle of joy that has just made an entrance. A very thoughtful idea is to make sure they get a present of their own to unwrap, and as our range of children’s gifts spans all ages, you will be able to find the perfect item here too.

Other people who would enjoy a present are the grandparents! Choose a pretty picture frame to hold an image of the new arrival, or a personalised gift such as the Belly Art Baby Imprint Kit which will display those gorgeous tine toes or fingers of your new baby and will make a great keepsake for family members, especially if they live far away.

At Gifts Australia, there are so many different Baby Gifts that we can’t possibly describe them all here, so why not take a moment and browse the range; you’ll be amazed at the variety of gorgeous gifts on offer
