What Are The Common Baby Gift Giving Traditions?

Traditions are funny things, aren't they? In Australia, we grab a sausage, whether we're hungry or not, when they're doing a Bunnings snag sizzle. In Germany, they drink copious quantities of beer in October. And in Japan, they eat KFC on Christmas Day - we're serious, look it up.

Baby gift-giving traditions aren't as wild or silly as these ones and there's actually a bit of room to bend the rules and think outside the box a little.

If you're wanting to stick to a traditional baby gift, or think of ways to do something different, let's take a look at Australian baby gift giving customs, brought to you by the experts at Soul Baby Gifts!

Choosing a super cute wrapping

Where did our obsession with finding the perfect wrapping come from? Was it from our grandmas, who always chose the best wrapping for our Christmas prezzies and would have a cupboard full of re-used wrapping kept from previous years? Yeah, that'd be it. Choosing an adorable wrapping is a baby gift giving tradition!

Gifting picture books

We all love a good picture book. Pretty pictures, awesome colours and usually an important life lesson conveyed in the book! Gifting picture books for a baby is an Australian tradition, so there's no wonder why you'd be keen on going for a timeless prezzie like this one. There are a bunch of adorable picture books available from Soul Baby Gifts, suitable for both boys and girls. By taking the traditional route of buying a picture book as a baby gift, you're giving the 

parents the opportunity to spend quality time with the new bub, while also getting a head-start on a good education.


Baby shoes

Is there any baby gift cuter than baby shoes? Those teeny, tiny versions of normal shoes that make your heart warm up with joy? We certainly don't think so! Baby shoes are a common Aussie baby gift - after all, if Mum can never have enough shoes, why would it be any different for bub?! No matter how many pairs of shoes the baby receives, they'll all be put to use... we have a feeling that Mum will start accessorising from the get-go.


Something for Mum

Grabbing something small for the parents is another tradition when buying a baby gift. It doesn't have to extravagant or pricey - check out Soul Baby Gift's range of Beauty's Got Soul body products, choccy fixes, sleepwear products and more. The mumma will be super appreciative!
