Planning your baby shower gift registry can feel like a huge task. There’s a ton of baby gear, an overwhelming amount of options and everything looks so incredibly cute. But what do you actually need?
Follow our 4 easy steps to simplify the process:
- Consult the experts. Save yourself some time by asking family and friends what they needed and loved most when they had their babies. Grandparents will often have sage advice and point you to timeless baby essentials, while friends with babies will know all about the latest baby products, recent innovations and their favourite baby gifts.
- Do your research. Now that you've got an idea of what you might need, get out to your nearest baby shops and baby expos and find out what's out there in the modern baby marketplace. Prefer shopping online? You can find most mainstream baby brands at the big name baby stores in Australia such as One Fine Baby, Baby Kingdom, Baby Village, Baby Bunting, Banana Baby or in Hong Kong you'll find MotherCare, Baby Central, Petit Tippi, Eugene Baby, Baby Basics and Baby Park. Instagram is also a treasure trove of boutique retailers, and you can use hashtags like "#shopsmallau" to find unique baby products for your baby bun.
- Collate your list. Use an inclusive app like BabyList which allows you to collate everything you want from any store on the one baby registry. How incredible is that!
- Add the essentials. Start with everyday necessities first, like a baby cot, bed sheets, pram, baby car seat and baby carrier. And don't forget to add the B&E Baby Nappy Change Clutch & Wipes Pouch Set! You'll change nearly 3000 nappies by the time your baby turns 1. Many of those will be while out and about, so get prepared!
That's it, it's as easy as 1,2,3...4!
