Baby Shower Gift Ideas

Baby showers so often happen in the spring and summer.  Not only are these seasons (in Canada) known for having fabulous weather but they also represent new growth and birth as the outdoors come to life.  This year, many are lucky to be able to have in person baby showers thanks to the improving COVID-19 situation.

Whether you’re able to celebrate the birth of a new baby in person or want to send well wishes we have you covered with our fast delivery options and top quality baby gifts.

Here are some of our favourite items for every budget!

Our Runaway Bunny Gift Basket is our Top Pick.  This adorable gift basket is tribute to Margaret Wise Brown’s classic book The Runaway Bunny.  Featuring her two most popular books – The Runaway Bunny and Goodnight Moon this gift basket is definitely going to be well loved and remembered!

This gift basket also includes a zip and play sleep suit and coordinating hat designed and made in Canada, a hoppa bunny ethically made in India and a bamboo swaddle and bib design in Canada by Nest Designs. 

These Baby Girl and Baby Boy Gift Baskets are our most traditional baby gift baskets and perfect for newborns.  These feature the Juddlies Breathe-Eze line of products and include a sleeper, hat and scratch mitts.  This gift basket also includes a Fair Trade rattle and 2 board books from Usborne Books.  The wicker basket the items are packaged in is perfect to store diapers or other things in the baby’s nursery.

Our Baby Bath Gift Basket is popular because it will last for many many years – from infancy through toddler days.  This gift basket comes with Baby Shampoo and Body Wash made in Canada from Baby Boo Bamboo, it includes organic cotton washclothes and a hooded towel designed in Canada by Nest Designs as well as water toys from Green Toys.  Green Toys are made in the USA from 100% recycled materials; the toys have award winning designs, they are excellent quality and can be fully dried preventing mold from growing.  My almost 4-year old still plays with the boat and stacking cups in the bath so trust me when I say this gift will last a long time!

Our Baby Steps Gift Basket celebrates both baby’s first steps and the many milestones of the first year. Packaged in a Green Toys Wagon and including baby’s first shoes (Made in Canada from vegan materials), organic cotton socks, a variety of books, a growth chart for photos and letters to my baby keepsake book.  Perfect for a first or second baby this sentimental gift hits all the marks.

Our Baby Monkey’s Cottage Gift Basket is a very special gift basket featuring Juddlies iconic lake blue cottage collection.  This gift basket has clothes and a sleep sack for baby from 3months to 18months, a coordinating monkey rattle, a slide-and-see book from Usborne Books, baby shampoo and body wash and baby lotion from Baby Boo Bamboo as well as a pair of Baby’s First Shoes – handmade in Canada from vegan materials.  You cannot go wrong with this basket that has a little bit of everything in the best quality Canadian brands.
