Did you know that baby showers began as a ritual to celebrate a mother birthing a child into the world? Then as time went on around the 1940's baby showers began evolving to a celebration that happens during pregnancy. In the year 2020 baby showers have evolved so much from being all female only celebrations to often including males, extravagant parties and expensive gifts. But what are the best selling baby shower gifts that you can actually gift a mum to be? 

Baby shower gifts have evolved so much too with gift cards, food delivery services, home cleaners and personalisation amongst some of the popular ways to welcome a new baby into the world with the exchange of a gift. 

You don't have to have the most creative baby shower gift to make a new mum happy. You can take inspiration from our list of Best Selling Baby Shower Gift Idea's below and put together your own selection. We also offer complimentary gift-wrapping which makes gift buying online an even simpler way to stock up on baby shower gifts! 

Best Selling Baby Shower Gifts of 2020

1. Snuggle Hunny Kids Jersey Wraps

The soft and stretchy jersey material makes Snuggle Hunny Kids Wraps a favourite for newborns as the material is delicate against a tender babies skin. They measure 100cm x 100cm in size and are versatile in use as a swaddle, blanket, pram cover, feeding cover, blankie and even an on the go baby picnic blanket. They really are an all round essential to add to cart as a baby shower gift!

2. Two Darlings Bodysuits & Harem Pants

The gift of giving is never complete without incorporating a newborn outfit. You are never going to be short on baby shower outfit gifts for a newborn, but what mum is short on is outfits that are the type they wear again and again. Newborn comfort and practicality is important and we find the Two Darlings Milk Bodysuit and Two Darlings Milk Harems to tick both those boxes.

3. Baby Hair Brush Gift Set

A hair brush and comb set falls into the category of being an equally useful and essential gift selection for a baby shower present. The beautiful L+L Label wooden set sold here makes it an ideal keepsake for a newborn. 

5. Alimrose Floppy Bunnies

There is nothing more that says 'keep me, I'm a special gift' than a plush toy can in a baby shower gift. The beautiful Alimrose Bunnies are the perfect selection and are a great unisex gifting option with a variety of neutral soft colour tones to choose from. They are made from a linen cotton with delicate embroided detail and are extra soft and cuddly for little ones to grow with.
