Nursery items: what to consider when buying gifts for a baby's room

From baby showers to first year birthdays and Christmas, there’s no doubt that giving gifts for a baby is a special thing. With the sheer amount of options to choose from, it can also get overwhelming. To help you find the perfect gift for your needs, consider these factors to help you narrow down the choices:

  • Age-appropriate - Firstly, consider the age of the little one. Buying a gift for a 6 month old will be different to buying a gift for a toddler.
  • Safety - Safety is always number one. Ensure that the gift is made from baby-friendly materials and meet Australian Safety Standards.
  • Purpose - What does the baby need the most? Or what gift would help out mum and dad the most? Baby gifts can be anything from feeding essentials, clothes and bath care to big things like cots, carriers, prams and car seats.
  • Quality - A high-quality gift is one that will last and do exactly what it says it will do.
  • Practicality - Make sure that your baby gift is also practical. It’s a good idea to buy something that can be used within the first 12 months and be used regularly.
  • Style - Style is an important factor when it comes to nurseries. Will earthy colours and a minimal design look just right or a gift that pops with bright colour and pattern?


Cots & bassinets: the best sleeping solutions for 6-month-olds

Cots and bassinets are essential pieces of nursery furniture for newborns and infants.

Play mats & gyms: engaging a baby's senses and motor skills

Play mats and activity gyms are sensory toys that stimulate babies’ senses and help them to develop important fine motor skills, such as hand-eye coordination, as well as gross motor skills. Sensory play can include activities such as tummy time on a play mat which also helps to build strength in the neck, arms, chest and back during playtime.
