Storytime Baby Gift Box

Tiny Tush Baby Cakes has teamed up with AP Pressing to create our impressive ‘Storytime’ baby gift box. This impressive gift box will make a beautiful present for a gender-neutral baby shower, a colleague going on maternity leave or for visiting the new mum in hospital. The books in this gift box would also make a great gift for the new big brother or sister.

This beautiful gift includes some essential baby items for the newborn and features two hardback books which could be gifted to the older sibling. These books will encourage some much needed one on one time between mum/dad and the new brother/sister. Both children’s books are filled with colourful illustrations and will help develop children’s numeracy and language skills.

Items for baby include two long sleeve bodysuits, a pair of Bonds socks and a rainbow coloured rattle to encourage motor skill development. Essentials like super absorbent Huggies nappies and two washcloths are also part of the carefully packaged gift box.

Mum and Baby Gift Boxes

I am excited to announce the arrival of our ‘Mum and Baby’ Gift Boxes. These make excellent gifts for new and expecting mums that include items for baby such as bibs, bodysuits, beanies and booties. Unlike our nappy cakes, our gift boxes also include a little something for mum. New mums can enjoy some ‘me time’ and relax with our bath soak pamper packs, hand care packs and scented candles.

Our Mum and Baby Gift Boxes make a lovely gender neutral baby gift idea for baby showers, maternity leave presents or when first visiting the newborn. They are also a practical gift idea for second or third time mums who have it all.

These gift boxes take the time, stress and guesswork out of buying a present for a new baby. Mum will also be impressed with the items included for her too. Our boxes are beautifully presented, complete with a satin bow and gift card. You can also request for the gift box to be delivered directly to the new or expecting mum.

Why Nappy Cakes and Hampers Make the Best Baby Gifts
 

Before I became a mum I would always struggle with what to buy for a new baby. My go-to baby gift would be clothing, usually a cute dress for a baby girl or a gorgeous outfit for a baby boy.

 Since becoming a mum I now realise what mums and bubs really need! Forget the cute little baby outfits and dresses! Although adorable they are just not practical and hardly get worn. Most of them are awkward to put on baby because they have annoying buttons at the back, are difficult to get over their head or are made of uncomfortable fabric. To get your wriggly, unsettled baby into these clothes presents another challenge! I still have a pile of little dresses that my daughter never even wore for these exact reasons. So next time you’re out shopping for the next baby gift resist the urge to buy that oh so adorable sailor outfit!

 So what would new and expecting mums really appreciate as a gift you ask?

 From experience, here’s my list of practical baby gifts that will definitely be appreciated by parents:

 1.       Nappies! Did you know that on average newborns go through approximately 10 nappies a day!? That’s 280 in a month and 840 nappies just in the first 3 months. You can never have enough!

2.       Wash cloths- these are another essential item that I used as a burp cloth or to wash bub during bath time. They also came in handy at meal times to clean baby’s messy face and hands.

3.       Muslin wraps- this is a multi-purpose item used to wrap baby and also used as a light blanket. I also used muslin wraps as a pram cover to shield the sun out of baby’s eyes or to reduce outside distractions to help them fall asleep in the pram.

4.       Socks- Even as adults we’re forever losing socks. This becomes even worse for babies who’s socks always slip off when they’re wriggling around while you’re changing them or when they’re in the car seat or out and about in the pram.

5.       Onesies- Babies pretty much live in these for the first 3 months or more. They are easy to put on babies as they don’t need to go over their heads to put them on, they can be pulled down if there happens to be a poo explosion and the ones with the zips make changing quick and easy- no push studs or buttons to contend with! Basically, a onesie means fewer items to put on a squirmy, crying baby. A win in my books!

 So what’s the perfect gift to take to a new mum when you’re visiting them in hospital or to bring to a baby shower?

 Nappy cakes! Our nappy cakes include these essential items and are presented in a beautiful way that makes an impressive and memorable gift. We use only the best quality items in our nappy cakes and they can be customised to suit the baby’s gender or baby shower theme. They also create stunning centrepieces at baby showers and complement the baby shower décor.
