Newborn baby gifts ideas

Welcome the newest bundle of joy to the world with a huge range of heartwarming newborn baby gifts at Metro Baby. We’ve got the cuddliest, cutest and most convenient products that expecting parents will love for their newborn and that will make adjusting to life with a little one easier. Dive into the ultimate buyer guide with affordable gifts made to cherish for a lifetime.

Unisex baby gifts

If you’re not sure whether the new arrival will be a boy or a girl, play it safe with a unisex gift.

All babies love cuddling with plush toys, from Miffy bunnies to koalas, giraffes, elephants and more. Teethers are also a great option with plenty of non-toxic silicone parts to chew on while playing, as are rattles, activity rings and activity toys that crinkle, squish, squeak and play music.

Ensure newborns stay snug as a bug with security blankets, swaddles and muslin wraps that keep them warm and comforted. We have organic cotton hooded towels for bath time and a swaddle and beanie gift set by Snuggle Honey Kids for the cutest combo. The best thing about these gifts is that they make beautiful keepsakes when the baby grows older.

Baby carrier

Baby carriers are a smart and stylish gift that makes carrying newborns around comfier and more supportive to both parents and baby. We have baby carriers by brands like Baby Bjorn and Ergobaby that keep babies close and warm to mum and dad while supporting their back, legs and hips. Soft mesh fabrics are gentle on delicate skin and the harness makes it easy to get baby in and out of the carrier. Choose a carrier in contemporary neutral shades that are easy to match to prams, capsules and other baby products.


Newborn clothes

You can’t go wrong with clothing for newborns. As an everyday essential, these gifts are always appreciated and give you plenty of versatility with style and colour. We have the cutest footed leggings for newborns crafted from soft fabrics like organic cotton and cashmere to go with sweet knit jumpers that baby can grow into. Accessories like pom pom beanies and merino wool booties keep bubs warm in winter and look adorable. Make getting ready in the morning easy with onesies, playsuits and bodysuits that make dressing and changing babies a breeze!



Playmats and play gyms make play time even more fun and provide a cosy, safe spot for newborns to kick, explore and have fun.
