If you’re on the hunt for a unique baby shower gift that won’t break the bank, here are my best present picks which mum and baby will love – all under £25.
Kokoso Baby Coconut Oil
We all know how good coconut oil is for our hair, skin and diets. But did you know it’s ideal for baby too? This inexpensive but powerful little pot of magic from Kokoso is said to be the purest fresh-pressed organic coconut oil with an abundance of natural nutrients. Super lightweight, silky smooth and minus the sickly-sweet aroma, use for baby massage, soothing dry skin, sores and buffing up bottoms!
Beehive Teething Toy
£10 Blossom and Bear
Prep for the arrival of that first pearly white with Blossom and Bear’s tactile teething toy. What can be a dribbly (and often grizzly) milestone, this super-stylish little number will entertain busy hands whilst soothing sore gums. Made from BPA free silicone beads and natural beech wood polished with an organic coconut oil, choose from a range of perfect pastel colours.
Go Dotty Black Wall Stickers
£15 Deco Baby
Add a spot of style to baby’s nursery with these Scandi polka dot wall stickers from Ginger & Sparkle. Easy to apply onto any smooth surface, painted walls, glass, plastic or metal furniture, there are 90 matt black stickers in every tin. Mum-to-be will go dotty for this pukka pressie.
Abigail & Rose Wooden Mummy Duck & Baby Duckling

A traditional wooden toy is something to cherish, and this handmade pull-along makes for the perfect heirloom, providing hours of play. Made from perfectly polished natural untreated wood, this mummy and baby duck duo form part of a brand new collection from Deco Baby – ideal for developing those all-important motor skills and hand-eye co-ordination.
Bella Silicone Teething Necklace
£17.95 Lara & Ollie

This combo of distinctive geometric beads will complete any mama outfit (minus a little extra drool of course).

£18 (pram) £22 (cot) Mama Designs
Let’s face it, every mum needs a go-to blanket and this little number stands out from the crowd. Made in two sizes for prams and cots, this soft cotton breathable blanket, the brainchild of super-mum Keira of Mama Designs, comes in a range of beautiful colours and contrasting trims. It’s clever cell-like structure encourages airflow and it washes up beautifully.
Super Star Print Musys
£19.95 aden + anais
Super practical can also be super-stylish. Sized for life on the go, aden + anais’ musy squares (3 pack) work (almost) as hard as parents do. Made from 100% cotton muslin, they are soft, absorbent and breathable making them the ideal all-round product; security blanket, bib, burp cloth and more! And the good news is, the musys get softer after each wash, so bring on the spills, dribbles and baby burps.
Little Cube Cloud Wall Hanging
£20 Little Cloud
This Little Cube Cloud wall hanging adds a splash of wizardry to any nursery. Part of Little Cloud’s exclusive ‘TeaTime’ collection, this handmade floral wooden cloud is covered in exclusive floral fabric from Little Cube and finished with magical glitter drops to catch the light.

£21 Lala Loves Decor
Welcome baby to their new nursery with this beautiful ‘hello’ acrylic sign in silver mirror, made by Lala Loves Décor. Designed using a hand-written script font and laser cut from acrylic, it’s a stunning baby shower gift for any modern nursery or child’s bedroom. Also available in gold mirror and gloss black, prop it up on a shelf or mount it onto the wall.
Shnuggle Baby Bath
Shower your parents-to-be with this splashing practical pressie. Bathing baby in a grown-up bathtub can be an awkward juggling act of trying to support baby whilst giving them a good wash. The Shnuggle Bath is brilliantly designed with a clever ‘Bum Bump’ to support baby and a soft backrest allows them to feel comfy without slipping. It’s also incredibly light, even with water in – the only bath they’ll need from newborn to 12 months.
