When Should You Bring a Baby Gift? - Soul Baby Gifts

When Should You Bring a Baby Gift? 

We've all heard it before: "don't bring anything but yourself". Lies! Take it from us, it's always appropriate and totally appreciated to bring a gift. Giving a pressie shows you're just as excited as the parents, and it spreads the love during these cherished moments.

And on top of that, science says gift giving is just as beneficial to the giver as it releases a bunch of feel-good endorphins, so it's a win-win for everyone!

When a baby is brought into the world, there are so many exciting milestones

- all of which deserved to be celebrated. Soul Baby Gifts give you the ultimate low-down on when you should bring a baby gift.

Baby shower

A baby shower is the start of celebrating the new bambino on the way and a fabulous way you can help the new parents prepare. If the expecting parents have organised a registry, try to reach out to other attendees to ensure there's no double-ups. We can't go past the Outback Dreamer Baby Gift Set. It's unisex, Australian themed, stocks all the essentials for bubs (literally everything) and even has some divine choccy for the parents.

The arrival 

The real gift is the safe delivery of the little baby boy or girl - but that doesn't mean we can't spoil the little munchkin to tell them 'congrats!' The early months of raising a baby can be demanding, so choosing strategic gifts can make these special times a little easier. Newborn Baby Clothes and Perfect Accessories Gift Set comes in a gorgeous neutral tone, has the softest organic clothing, a practical teething toy and is packaged in the chicest suitcase which can be used to store all the little one's essentials after. Soul Baby Gifts offer complimentary monograming to add a heartfelt touch.



In good etiquette it's a sweet gesture to give a gift at a baptism. After all, you only get baptised once! You can't go wrong with a snuggly blanket. Purebaby Pale Grey Essentials Blanket is made of 100% organic cotton. Perfect for the baby to snuggle with in the pram or the basinet.


First birthday

It's crazy how fast a year can fly by. With all these milestones achieved in the first year of the little one's life you'll be shocked at how fast the first birthday creeps up. A first birthday is a celebration for the baby, but also a time to give the parents a big pat on the back for navigating their way through a whole year... and only 17 more to go!

At 12 months it's a great time to gift a book. Where's Mr Lion? is a great book to share with little ones. The pages are thick and durable, perfect for enthused toddlers. Plus, it's a great way to stimulate the baby's senses and set them up for a long-term love of reading.
