Koalas and kangaroos just might be the most adorable animals found in the Australian Outback, but they’re even cuter as baby gifts! Lovable koalas and cuddly kangaroos are the latest inspirations behind our newest Outback Explorer Collection. From a comfy baby bath robe to huggable plush animals, the unique designs in this Australian-themed baby gift collection are ready to be explored and be adored. Say “G’day, mate!” to a few unique and charming gifts for baby!
A Snuggly Koala in a Bandana
Meal time will be even more fun with Outback Jack, the coolest koala plush that comes with a bib for baby.
Any little explorer will look dapper in their outback-themed bandana bib!
Twirlin’ Koala with Tutu
A Tutu Cute koala plush is a chic gift for a baby girl! This high-fashion koala from Down Under pirouettes in a pair of purple bloomers trimmed with a white tulle tutu. The sweet tutu is the perfect size for baby to wear, too!
Cozy Koala Bath Time
After a fresh bath or playing in the waves on the beach, keep baby bundled up and warm in a fuzzy koala robe.
Kangaroo Plush with Rattle and Socks
A mommy kangaroo can carry a lot in her pouch! This plush kangaroo carries a baby in her pouch (the baby roo is a rattle!) plus two pairs of printed baby socks.
Cuddles and Snuggles Lovie
A precious plush koala lovie is just as cute as the real thing! This fluffy lovie will be baby’s favorite snuggle buddy during naptime.

Baby showers are a sweet tradition, but the pressure of choosing a gift to be opened in front of a room of eager onlookers can make for a stressful shopping experience! With seemingly endless options, it’s a challenge to choose a standout gift for the occasion. Memorable “keepsakes” are a common choice, but practical gifts prove to be the ones that moms remember when they use them on a regular basis. Choose one of these ten go-to gifts that new mamas are sure to find useful and special, too!
1. Bedtime Books
Books are a good gift option for any baby shower, but especially when you don’t know the baby’s gender. Goodnight Moon is a classic bedtime book choice and this durable board book will quickly become part of baby’s bedtime routine.
Gifting Tip: Add a special note to baby inside the cover!

3. Diaper Bag
Pamper a stylish mommy-to-be with an equally chic diaper bag! This pricey pick makes a great group gift. She’ll appreciate the splurge and think of all her gal pals each time she carries it. She won’t mind stowing her favorite handbag when she can tote this little black bag that’s built to suit baby’s needs.
Sometimes it’s the little gadgets and gear that make the biggest difference and this Pronto! changing station is great for moms (and dads) on the move! This stylish essential comes at a cool price point of $30.
With design selections that suit new parents’ styles, Solly Baby Wrap caught our eye! This mamma-owned company creates wraps that bring you closer to baby without cramping your style. We like this natural and grey stripe wrap, but you’ll want to pick one that best fits your friend’s taste!
This sentimental shower gift is practical, too! We’re all in favor of a functional gift and this one will fit perfectly in the rocking chair in the nursery. Here’s how to give it – at the shower, present the mommy-to-be with an IOU and let her choose the color. Once the baby is born, order the gift with all of the personalized details and ship it straight to the new baby!
For less than $100, you can treat the new parents to a top-rated baby monitor! This is a great option for a gift from a few friends, and the new mom and dad will thank you for a few extra hours (okay, maybe minutes) of sleep. This digital video monitor has night vision so they can peek at their little ones without disturbing their sweet dreams.
Take bath-time essentials to the next level with an adorable Baby Aspen bath robe! They’ll have a zillion hooded towels, but a baby-sized bath robe will be a bath-time favorite. You can personalize it with a monogram, too!
If everything else seems to be covered, make this great gift set your new go-to baby shower gift. Packed with a little bit of each of the newborn care essentials, like diapers, wipes, body wash, and healing balm, this gift set from The Honest Company comes gift-ready in a pretty package.
