Looking for that very special baby shower gifts set for that very special Mom-to-be, that doesn’t have the same things as all the other baby shower gifts, or just your average present that everyone gets? In this Baby Shower Gifts Guide, we look at special baby shower gifts for that special Mom-to-be! At Bubs For Babes, we’re very excited about our new luxury baby shower gifts – they are the wow factor of baby shower gifts! All our products are thoughtfully designed by our creative experts and are made lovingly and locally by passionate seamstresses in the community.
Planning the baby shower is fun and exciting for the arrival of the bundle of joy. Usually, a good friend / relative of the new mom organises the baby shower and the baby shower gifts’ registry.
When planning the day of the baby shower, consult with the parents – to – be and settle on a date that will suit them and consider family and friends living out of town. Some new moms like themed baby showers, like the balloon craze (think Khloe Kardashian) or continuing the theme of the baby nursery, check that this is what mom would like. Also, ask if mom wants fun and games at the baby shower, or just an intimate gathering of close family and friends to shower the parents-to-be with love and support – and some of the stuff they’ll need. Aside from socializing and honouring the parents-to-be, the main event at a baby shower is often opening the baby shower gifts.
After much thought and planning at Bubs For Babes, we have 2 options for baby shower gifts
The first option is the very special Moses basket baby shower gifts set. It is a grass woven basket, filled with all the goodies that a new mom needs for her precious bundle of joy. It comes with a mattress and 3 percale cotton fitted sheets, so that Mom has spare, when the sheets need to be washed.
The Moses basket fits the baby from birth to about 4 months and it can be used afterwards for storing of toys etc and for laundry. Also, not to be forgotten is that a grass woven Moses basket is a trending item and “must have” for that special baby and Mum-to-be. Yes, your baby will have outgrown it in the blink of an eye and you’ll be wondering “what happened to my newborn & how are all of those tiny tot, cute little outfits no longer fitting???”
The perks are that the Moses basket is of the highest quality and very durable, so it can be reused for Baby number two… Oh wait, we didn’t say that… Haha. In my daughter’s circle of friends they have started a tradition of – The travelling Moses Basket. When each of the special Mom friends welcomes their first little bambino, they get use out of the Moses basket. It’s even fitted twins, it’s that sizeable. Maybe you and your gals can start your own tradition.
The Bubs For Babes Moses basket is also mobile, so you can move it around and always have your baby in sight (and hear it cry, but also hear that sweet little cooing and gurgling. It’s just the cutest and is heart melting stuff). The Moses basket can be used for either day naps or night time sleeping, or even both, whatever suits the Mom-to-be. Add to that, you will naturally be nervous, checking on your little bundle constantly and having the Moses basket next to you at night time makes you feel more secure! I found myself many-a-time doing the finger under the nose test to check baby was breathing. The natural holes in the sides of the basket also mean that it is fully ventilated which helps to prevent overheating, another bonus when having a summer baby.
• Babies can have two areas of sleep. This is where the baby Moses basket is so useful
• I used the Moses basket during the day for naps and had natural day time light beaming through the room (generally downstairs in the lounge when I pottered around the house.)
• Night time sleep, we moved the Moses basket into our bedroom and had our room in full darkness, so as not to create that well known ‘day time – night time’ sleep confusion.
• Soon enough, with the convenience & mobility of the Moses basket, your baby will associate their day time naps & night time sleep patterns waxed.
The second item in the luxury Moses Basket is our Signature Bubs For Babes Starwrap which is an absolute must – made from luxurious mink fleece in the shape of a star, it is ‘fuss free’ with only one press stud and no fiddly zips or buttons. Simply pop your dressed baby into the Starwrap and into the car seat, pram or carrier and you’re good to go. There is no worry about your baby getting cold because there is no blanket to kick off. The Bubs For Babes Starwrap keeps your baby warm and snug. Often, after coming home from an outing, your baby is fast asleep and so comfy, that it won’t wake up when putting him/her back in the cot!!!
Also in the Moses basket is a Bubs for Babes Sheep, Ellie or Penguin soft baby comforter which is made from soft fleece with satin, ribbon and velvet ears, face and legs – all great textures for baby to suck and feel for sensory development.
The Bubs For Babes sheep comforter has sheep-skin type fabric, with a satin face, velvet ears and ribbon for legs, with printed detail in your chosen colour (pink, blue or neutral)
“My little girl Ruby is 3.5months old and is totally and utterly in love with her new Bubs For Babes sheep. It is so easy for her to grab and hold it, as it is lightweight and the textures are so soft and cuddly. She snuggles with it and literally buries her face in the fleece. Very comforting and so sweet to see. A real Winner, Moms out there”
The gorgeous, soft Bubs For Babes Ellie baby comforter made from soft, luxurious fleece and the satin ears feature Bubs printed fabric and satin printed tail taglet, in your chosen colour (pink, blue or neutral.) The eyes are embroidered, so that there’s nothing hazardous for your baby to pull off and put into their mouth, because… EVERYTHING goes into their mouths!
Punky Penguin is soft luxurious mink fleece with satin beak, arms and legs and Bubs satin printed tail taglet, in your chosen colour.
That special baby and Mom-to-be will also receive a cotton knit reversible receiving blanket in her Moses Basket, as well as a Bubs For Babes beanie, a baby body wash cloth and 2 dummy clips with cute, little detailed prints. In the Moses basket, for the special Mom-to-be (the ever -loving hard worker) is a Journal for Mom to keep a note of baby’s milestones and other bits and bobs.

Bubs For Babes second option for baby shower gifts, is a sturdy, decorative box (can be used to store toys etc) and you have a colour choice of pink, blue or neutral. The baby shower gifts’ box also comes with Starwrap, Sheep, Ellie or Penguin soft baby comforter. A gorgeous cotton knit reversible receiving blanket, a beanie, a baby body wash cloth, 2 dummy clips with cute, little detailed prints. Included in the baby shower gifts’ box, is a journal for mom to capture all the special moments to remember. Let’s be honest, Mom brain is a real thing and we tend to forget things if we don’t write them down. The journal is great for taking notes, keeping track of routine & times of feeding and naps etc.
The journal is also great for Mom-to-be, to write daily entries of how her pregnancy has been and can then become a cute book of the baby’s important little things he/she did & when they achieved their milestones. My daughter used her journal as a second diary to write letters to her baby which will be kept until he is older, to read and appreciate a special time together both in utero and when he was a growing little bambino. The box can also be used afterwards to store all special achievements, hand and foot print paintings and any important paperwork like birth certificates, growth charts etc.
The grass woven Moses basket and/ or the baby shower gift box are the perfect baby shower gifts for that very special baby and Mom-to-be. Friends and family can have fun choosing the colour of the baby shower gifts’ boxes or Moses basket, be it pink or blue, or for those who are keeping the gender a surprise, they can choose neutral baby shower gifts sets with Sheep, Ellie or Punky Penguin.
The baby shower gifts are priced at R 2150.00 for the luxury Moses basket and R 1050.00 for the luxury box, including delivery. Both baby shower gifts are fantastic value for money.
Baby shower gifts that are fun and practical – a baby tub filled with all the things a new parent needs to keep baby squeaky clean. Include baby shampoo, a mild soap, a baby body washcloth, a baby hooded towel and some simple bath toys. A baby brush and comb set complete the picture
The SnuggleRoo Carry Me is one of the easiest ways for a new parent to carry a baby around in a sling. Babies love the warmth and feeling of being snuggled up close to Mom or Dad, and the simple design leaves a parent’s hands free to run errands, while their little one sits / sleeps safely in the carrier
Nervous first-time moms and dads will appreciate the reassuring presence of an Angel Care portable baby monitor receiver wherever they may be at home. These gadgets have become more and more sophisticated, leaving parents and babysitters (like Granny Bubs) secure that they can see and hear the slightest movement of Baba. My first time, I sat watching the baby monitor for ages – it was like watching the test pattern when TV came to SA in the 70s!!!
I’ve had so much fun and insight writing my journal, (compared to 32 years ago when my bambinos were born and you couldn’t get half the stuff that’s available today) I feel totally equipped to throw a fantastic Baby Shower with all these gorgeous modern day baby shower gifts!!!
Until next time.
