Looking for a gift for a special little bubba in your life, or perhaps a baby shower gift? Well, you’re in the right place, below are 6 great gifts for babies and mums. These are particularly ideal presents for Australian babies or expanding expat families or as a country themed gift sent to friends and family living elsewhere.
#1 Adorable baby clothing
What could be cuter than an Aussie Koala outfit for bubba! This adorable set is made up of the Kangaroo Baby Bodysuit and the Koala Hat and Booties Set.
Best for babies up to 6 months of age and made from soft fabrics including organic cotton to make sure baby is comfortable as well as cute!
#2 Cute little life-savers
Being a beach loving nation means we really value our iconic beach patrol units and surf lifesavers, they keep us safe while we are having fun in the best playground nature has to offer!
With this in mind, why not dress the kids up in the uniform of some of our nation’s favourite heroes. Australia The Gift has a whole range of beach patrol clothing for kids and babies.
Top picks are the baby beach patrol hat and kids beach patrol rash vest. Beach Patrol apparel makes a wonderful gift for Australian beach babes and has the additional benefit of protecting them from harmful UV rays.
#3 Baby UGG booties
Need we say more? Teeny Tiny, Itsy Bitsy, Baby Booties. Australian Made, Authentic Ugg Boots for the smallest of feet.
Handcrafted from sustainably sourced natural materials including Australian merino sheepskin and 100% cotton shoelaces. These iconic Ugg booties are a wonderful gift for babies, especially in the cooler months or as an Australian gift sent to friends or family living in colder climates.
#4 Cuddly soft toys
No list of gifts for babies would be complete without cuddly soft toys. Australia the gift has a huge range of soft toys, with a special focus on Australian animals.
We have plenty of adorable plush Kangaroos and Koalas as well as other Australian animals too such as platypus, echidna, kookaburra, cockatoo, wombat, crocodile, emu, turtle and even a quokka toy!
If you are looking for a soft toy that is a little bit different we recommend the Chattermate talking Cockatoo which laughs moves, shakes and copies what you say. Or a hand puppet that is both fun for bubs to cuddle on their own and then comes to life as a puppet on the hand of a friend or family member.
#5 Soft sheepskin rugs
It is a tradition in both Australia and New Zealand for babies to have a sheepskin rug to lay on, some people use them as a cot liner or as a play mat or cosy lining in bouncers, prams and baby seats.
They are natural, warm, soft and oh so cuddly, providing great tactile comfort for babies. Sheepskin rugs make a very special gift that the child can use for years to come, personally my own has eventually ended up as a rug next to my bed so that first thing in the morning when I get out of bed I step onto soft wool.
For the traditional sheepskin rug / mat there are a couple of great options the Rustic Sheepskin Rug and the Large Natural Sheepskin Rug the main difference being the size, both are 100% Sheepskin wool.
#6 Teething toys
Last but certainly not least is of course Mizzie the Kangaroo Teething Toy. Mizzie is an award winning, distinctly Australian teething toy for babies!
Winner of bronze medal for Favourite Teething Product 2019 in the My Child Excellence Awards after receiving 23,000 Australian votes! Mizzie is made out of 100% natural rubber, so there’s no toxic BPA, PVC, nitrosamines and phthalates to be found!
She also helps develop infants sense of touch, sight, smell and hearing – as Mizzie also laughs when squeezed! Heading to a baby shower? Mizzie offers a safe and thoughtful baby shower gift that will not be forgotten!
