Whether you’re a baby-shower veteran or a newborn newbie, as you get older, baby showers are always on the cards. But do you get the new mum something a little bougie or a gift that won't break the bank?

From pink and fluffy fun to tacky, teddy things, finding cool baby shower gifts can be challenging. Knowing the best baby and mum gifts can present quite the conundrum.

When it comes to shopping for a baby that’s well on the way, you don’t have to spend a fortune to give a gift that the mum-to-be will remember.

Pregnancy skincare and beauty products are always a great place to start. Something for (the inevitable) pregnancy stretch marks will no doubt go down a treat.

If you’re shopping for a co-worker you’re fond of, you could pick up a simple baby and mum gift set (we’ve listed some below for you to check out).

If you’re looking for an above-average present for a friend you just can’t live without, you could choose a mother and baby gift that they'll cherish.

From gifts from baby to mum (or from baby to nan on Mother’s Day—you can never be too prepared), shopping for a newborn and a new parent can be pretty darn cute. Of course, a lot of what you pick comes down to your budget.

Whether you’re scraping together your pennies or looking to splurge on baby gift ideas for mum, we’ve found the present ideas that will level up your gift-giving game.

Designed to help leave skin seriously soft and velvety smooth, this multipurpose body oil can be used as often as needed.

  • When it comes to baby shower pamper gifts for mum, you might want to think about giving them something a little bit luxurious.

Cruelty-free and certified organic, this lightweight oil hydrates and replenishes skin that’s being stretched and tested.

  • When on the hunt for gifts for mum for baby shower, you could be drawn to something that’s completely baby-unrelated. And why not? Mums need treating, especially while they’re pregnant.

Shopping for a baby shower gift doesn't have to cost you the world. Sometimes, the most thoughtful gifts are the ones that really consider what a new parent will need. Although so many babies experience eczema and dry skin once they’re born, keeping their nails short (so they don’t scratch) is something an overwhelmed new mum might not have thought about. The Tweezerman Baby Nail Clipper with Bear File is a super-cute nail clipper that’s been especially designed with a baby’s chubby, little fingers in mind. The bright colour is easy to spot amongst an array of baby stuff. And the new mum will be able to tackle the task at hand without too much trouble.

  • No baby likes to have their nails clipped. Unfortunately, it’s one of those necessary evils that will save them from themselves in the long run. If a baby’s nails are too long, they might scratch themselves and tear their delicate skin. This bright nail set is fun to look at, even if the job ahead seems a bit daunting. Expertly designed to cut the baby’s nails precisely without pulling or nipping at their skin, this design is easy for even novices to use.

  • Help them keep their baby’s skin in the best condition with the Tweezerman Baby Nail Clipper With Bear File. The large handle makes the clipper easier to control and position. And the bear file gently smooths down any snags on those little nails. Suitable for babies over 2 months old, this handy, cute set lets any new mum cut their baby’s nails with confidence. A practical gift idea that won’t go to waste, this seriously useful present is sure to be appreciated.
