Finding the perfect gift for a new mum and baby can be a hard choice. Unless the mum-to-be has a wishlist, it can be challenging to narrow it down to the perfect baby shower gift.
- You want something functional that you know mum and bub will make use of.
- You want something unique
- Plus you want something for mum too – so many people forget the new mum!
And the good news is, there is a new baby gift that ticks all 3 of these boxes – the Audrey & Me gift boxes.
THE PERFECT BABY SHOWER GIFT
With my second daughter, Violet, I had planned to have a low key girls catch up/baby shower get together before she was born. However due to a tragedy in the family, it didn’t happen, and that’s okay because having another girl meant we had everything we needed anyway.
Violet inherited all of her big sister’s hand me downs, from baby clothes to toys and everything else in between. It makes no real difference when you’re new to the world.
However, it’s nice to have some new things for your new baby (and we did receive some lovely gifts from stores like my babies planet baby gear and Audrey and Me. We are so bless to have such a generous family and friends who thought of us even without having a baby shower), so when the opportunity arose to review one of the Audrey & Me baby gift boxes, I was pretty excited!
ABOUT AUDREY & ME
Audrey & Me is a boutique online baby store specialising in eco friendly handmade baby products.
They are committed to creating beautiful handmade creations for babies and mothers’ using 100% natural fibres, because they are better for the environment, but more importantly, they are better for babies as well.
The fabrics used are limited run, high quality fabrics with trendy designs and a variety of colours and patterns.
BABY GIFT BOXES
The Audrey & Me baby gift boxes are the perfect baby shower gift! Inside you get fun, functional and stylish, all packaged up beautifully.
My eldest daughter Lily helped me open the package when it arrived on our doorstep. And right from the moment we began to open it, there was no doubt what was inside would be lovely!
Audrey & Me use 100% handmade packaging and labels, with recycled paper, brown twine and cardboard labels on the products. The extra detail makes the gift really special.
Inside the gift box is a baby romper, a wooden & fabric teething ring, 2 bandana bibs, baby milestone cards and a funky teething necklace for mum.
The bandanas are great for adding a little extra style to baby outfits, but they are also very functional – perfect for when babies start teething and drooling lots.
The onesie is simple, understanded and has a bold print, as well as the A & M branding on the back.
The teething necklace is a pretty accessory to dress up mum’s style while also giving bub something to play with and chew on. They are made of silicone that is free of any nasties. This was actually perfect timing as I was on the look-out for something bold and chunky for myself.
The baby milestone cards are really special too. While we have missed the first 4 months of recording Violet’s milestones, I have always loved these cards and as an avid scrapbooker and memorykeeper, they are right up my alley. Although we are a week early with this one so we will take a nicer pic for her actual 5 months milestone.
Overall, the gift is simply lovely and ideal for a new baby gift or baby shower gift. And the best part is they come in both a boy or a girl version (although the patterns are so trendy, many of them would work for either gender).
Each gift box is $79.95 and can be purchased online from the Audrey & Me website, which makes it perfect if you are wanting to send a gift to someone who lives further away, as you can send it direct to them instead. There is also a premium version that includes a bottle of Moet and a toy fox too.
