Gifting: 5 unique baby shower gifts (for every budget)

Alison Bough

Once purely the domain of American mommies-to-be, the baby shower now has its feet firmly under the Irish (delivery) table.

Baby showers give expectant mamas the opportunity to share a relaxed and enjoyable day with their female friends and rellies before baba arrives. If you have an upcoming shower penciled into the diary, you’ll be delighted to know that we’ve done the gifting groundwork for you…

1. Labour socks

These labour socks are a hospital bag must-have. Keenly priced at just €8.28 (plus shipping), you can find them via The Decal Shoppe on Etsy. Perfect for a mama-to-be with a sense of humour.

2. New mama wine label set

We think these wine labels are a baby shower bargain at just €9.21 (plus shipping). Another Etsy find, they will give the new mama in your life some different milestones to look forward to.

3. Keepsake box

This keepsake box is a lovely way for expectant mamas to keep their baby shower memories together in one place. The baby shower box is available from Easons and priced at €19.99.

4. County nappy cakes

These uniquely Irish three-tier county nappy cakes are perfect for rebel mamas and Dubs too. Available in both Cork and Dublin colours, they also come with the option of county soothers for a  small additional cost. Priced at €54.99, they are available from Churchtown Gifts.

5. Build your own gift basket

Cherish Me will help you to build your own gift basket. A wicker basket and some cellophane wrapping come in at €19.99, and then you can add as many products as you would like to include in your hamper.
