Unique Eco Friendly Baby Shower Gifts
Baby showers are a celebration of life, the symbol that another life is just about to begin, and an opportunity to treasure a friend who is about to go through one of the greatest journeys of her life. Baby shower gifts are a token of friendship; secondary to the gift of your time and presence as a friend, but none the less worthy of investing love and thought when selecting. We have curated the most wonderful present guide for unique eco-friendly baby shower gifts. The majority of the gifts are created by Australian businesses, many of them inspired by motherhood, and a few we included just because they are treasures worthy of being in this collection.
Little Innoscents Baby Products
We love Little Innoscents Baby Products because they are certified organic and created by a mum with the intention of protecting the skin of her own baby. Completely free from chemicals, these are natural products that any mother would be thrilled to receive in a baby shower hamper or simply as a stand-alone gift. Their range includes baby skincare, cleaning and laundry, aromatherapy, gift packs, and our favourite product – their pawpaw cream, which is free from petroleum like it should be. Explore the entire range at Little Innoscents Organic Baby Skincare.
Letters To You Baby
We love this book so much because it’s much more than a milestone baby book; it’s a way to offer a lifetime of memories for little ones from the moment they are born. Write memories, thoughts and messages once a year or even more often as you wish. It’s a lovely baby shower gift for mums to be, and an alternative to traditional baby books. Australian online store Little Boo-Teek stocks this unique Baby Letters Book.
Eco-Friendly Rocking Horse
The EverEarth Rocking Horse is the perfect accessory for a unisex nursery and is a wonderful group gift idea for an eco-friendly baby shower. All EverEarth wooden toys are produced from sustainable materials. Australian Wooden Toy Store Knock on Wood Toys sells this wonderful Eco-Friendly Rocking Horse.
Organic Baby Socks
Soft organic baby socks will always be appreciated by new parents, and these lovely Purebaby socks are unisex and ideal as an eco-friendly baby shower gift; either as a stand-alone present or as part of a hamper. Milk and Love stock these wonderful Organic baby socks.
Sophie The Giraffe
Sophie the Giraffe is made from 100% natural rubber and is free from phthalates, vinyl and PVC. This wondrous teether is handmade and is painted in non-toxic, food grade paints. Sophie the Giraffe is a beautiful baby gift idea and any mama will delight in receiving this as a baby shower gift. Australian store Biome sells Sophie the Giraffe.
An Organic Onesie
We love this Ecobella onesie; simple and unisex. Made of 100% organic cotton, it is sweatshop free and so is both an ethical and eco-friendly baby shower gift idea. This one is exclusive to Ecobella.
The Complete Buddhism for Mothers
Mamas-to-be will relish in this book, whether they are followers of Buddhism or not. The Complete Buddhism for Mothers is filled with pages that will inspire and give strength both pre-baby and for many years to come. This is much more than a parenting book and explores mindfulness as a parent, but also as a way of life. Buy it at Australian bookstore Booktopia.
Organic Cotton Muslin Swaddle Blankets
There are so many wraps out there to choose from, but we love both the designs of these fabrics and the generous sizing at 120 x 120cm. These swaddle blankets have been lovingly created by Emma Brooke, an Australian textile designer, and would make a lovely eco-friendly baby shower gift. You can find more of Emma’s creations on Etsy.
Isn’t this the most divine mobile you have ever seen!? Exquisitely handmade, it can even be customised according to selected nursery colours. We love this ethical alternative to mass-produced baby mobiles! Made by Mikimoocreations.
