Silver Cloud Counting Sheep Bouncer

My baby loves this bouncer! We had a different one and he was forever hurting his feet on the bar from kicking his legs so we decided to get this one and it is 100% better for him plus it lies flat too! Always a bonus when they fall asleep, really easy to put together too

If you are looking to spend a little more for that perfect baby shower gift, then we recommend a baby bouncer. Bouncers are amazing to keep babies occupied and immersed in playtime.

Baby Einstein Neptune's Ocean Discovery Jumper

This has been the best thing we have ever bought our kid. He absolutely loves it, and it keeps him occupied so we can get things done. A complete life saver.

The Baby Einstein Neptune's Ocean Discovery Jumper is a jumper seat that will keep any baby entertained! Children will be able to bounce to their heart's content, while playing with the underwater toys attached to the jumper. They can turn around 360° degrees to look around and access all the toys and the battery-operated sea turtle will help them learn numbers and colours in 3 languages. Best baby shower gift ever?

Infantino Grow with me Activity Gym and Ball Pit

My daughter has been using this since she was a new born to now at 10 months. I did buy rings that attached and her hands easily knocked into. This kept her entertained and developed her hand eye cordination. It stayed packed away for a month or two when we moved and now that she is walking and crawling she loves it as a ball pit. She goes in and out and moves the balls around. Great toy that has kept her interest as she has grown.

How do you feel about a gift that will keep babies entertained for hours on end and give their parents a bit of peace at the same time? That is what you will be able to present to newborn parents with this Infantino 3-in-1 Grow with me Activity Gym and Ball Pit. This colourful turtle doubles as an activity gym mat or, by adding a circle of see-through netting, as a ball pit. The balls for the ball pit can be sorted in the turtle's head when not in use. And as a cherry on top, there is also a mobile included with colourful, squishy toys to keep the little ones interested.

I LOVE LOVE LOVE the design of the box..keepsake type..you can put babys info on the inside when they are born. has the mittens built into sleeves and perfect size for newborn. THE SWADDLE blanket is more like a THIN scarf material but perfect for summer baby

Ensure maximum style from day one with this gorgeous swaddle blanket, gown and hat gift set from Milkbarn. The muslin swaddle blanket and the cotton gown and hat are all organic and decorated with white elephants on a grey background, and come in a matching keepsake box.

3 Sprouts Play Mat Bag

LOVE. LOVE. LOVE. This mat is a great buy and must have for new parents. The material is sturdy and great. It’s breathable too so works wonders for tummy time. The fabric is durable, but comfortable for our baby. The design is adorable too, I have received so many compliments.

Perfectly practical, this adorable toy storage bag and playmat is great for parents who are on the go, making it easy to carry and layout toys from place to place. Adorable animal prints: choose from hedgehog, elephant, fox and more. It's also soft and easy to clean, and under $30, making it one of the best baby shower gifts we've seen.

Tiny Love Soothe 'n Groove Mobile

This was such a great purchase for my son. He really enjoys laying in his crib, babbling to his little friends and kicking at the buttons. I bought this when he was just a month old and he still enjoys it at 3 months old.

The Tiny Love Soothe 'n Groove Mobile makes an amazing gift for newborns and toddlers. The mobile moves softly and contains 18 different melodies, either soothing for napping or energetic for playtime. Extra features are the nightlight and the possibility to remove the mobile to entertain toddlers with the separate music box.

Skip Hop Bandana Buddies Baby Teething Toy

The fabric is so nice. I almost don't want my son to play with it because it's so nice! I don't want him to get it dirty or ruin it lol. But of course I did give it to him and he loves it! There's different textures for him to touch and the teethers are great quality. I also like how there is a rattle attached as well. The ears have that crinkle sound. Every baby should own one of these.

We think a Skip Hop Bandana Buddies Baby Activity and Teething Toy would make a perfect baby shower gift for any newborn! It's made up of a multi-sensory rattle and features different textures for babies to explore. The bandana teether is easily to detach and use separately and it's PVC and Phthalate-free. And last but not least, all of this is presented in the shape of a cute, little puppy. What's not to love?
