Best Baby Shower Gifts That Mom-To-Be Will Use And Love

Originally published by Momma Mills on her lifestyle blog.

I was baby shower shopping last week for a wonderful friend, and while I thought I still knew what to get for a new bundle of joy, the reality is I’m out of the loop! The ever-evolving baby market of unique brands to love and adore your little one have gotten sweeter, and necessities like the breast pump and diaper disposal have definitely become more efficient. Baby shower registries are always a good place to start, but when it comes to shopping for momma-to-be, why not think outside the box and surprise her with one of these new and thoughtful gifts that she will definitely use and love. In the spirit of supporting local, I’ve included links to retailers in Victoria, BC who caught me up to speed, and where you can be sure to receive exceptional customer service when making purchasing decisions for babies and children.

Water Baby Floatie

A modern neck floatie to make bath and swim time fun for both babies and parents alike. With secure and adjustable support, this floatie gives baby the ability to splash around and increase confidence, coordination, and exploration safely in the water. Designed for security and comfortability, Water Baby is the perfect choice for mom to look forward to and is suitable for ages 2-18 months; or 12lbs-29lbs.

Beba Bean 

The creators of the infamous pee-pee teepee have extended their product line with adorable and practical apparel items as well as innovative toys. My favourite items are the Sweater Moccs, which are a handmade combination of wool sweater socks and crochet knit booties with a leather sole, as well as the knit hoodies, which are the sweetest and softest sweaters I’ve ever seen, complete with vintage buttons to boot. Available at Amelia Lee, a conscious-minded lifestyle store with a tasteful selection of women, baby, home, & apothecary.

Haakaa

I just missed the window to this seriously revolutionary breastfeeding pump, and unlike the version typically found on Amazon, the Haakaa sold at Momease Baby Boutique features a suction base to help prevent spills, and is still offered at a lesser price point. The pump is easy to use & sterilize with no small parts and no batteries or electricity are required! Perfect for travel or simply pumping anytime and anywhere, while still having the ability to move around and use your hands!

Little Fern Apparel

Little Fern Apparel is a heartfelt brand created for versatility and sustainability. The creator’s vision was to fill a gap in the marketplace where conscientious design meets the use of organic materials, and to produce quality pieces for baby in an environmentally-friendly manner. Little Fern Apparel is ethically sourced and Canadian-made whenever possible, and at the core of the brand is the belief that it should be easy to find thoughtful and timeless pieces made to last. Their innovative swaddles are made from 100% organic cotton, and the two-way zip-up sleeper is designed for quick diaper changes and is so adorable that it can be used as an everyday outfit!
