Usually when I buy gifts I follow the philosophy of buying something that the recipient would love but wouldn’t normally buy for themselves, for whatever reason. And this is also what I try to do when buying baby gifts. I know that a new mum will receive lots of very useful items like onesies and nappies and lotions but I like to buy unique baby gifts, something that I would love to receive.

With the changes to the paid parental leave entitlements, I am sure we will see a mini baby boom so I thought you might need some good ideas tucked under your belt. Whether it is a baby shower gift or something for when baby has arrived, here are nine gorgeous pieces I found on Etsy. Of course, you could always buy a set of my mini month cards as they make a lovely new baby gift 😉

** I love Etsy, yes I do! And that is why I joined their affiliate program. The links in this post are affiliate links but you can be assured that I spent over an hour researching the best of the best and would never recommend anything that I wouldn’t buy for myself or my family. You might like to read this post I wrote in 2012 about why I love buying handmade.
