What to get the eco mum for her baby shower

Baby showers are an amazing occasion for mums-to-be. Gifts, party games and a celebration of the incredible miracle of a new life. But for environmentally-minded new mums, a baby shower can be a minefield of single-use plastics, non-recyclables and other baby gifts that are well-meaning but not great for the planet. If you’re planning a baby shower for an eco mum, you might be feeling a bit concerned about how to manage that risk. Luckily, there is help on hand! We’ve got a great range of eco-friendly baby shower gifts to delight even the most eco-minded mum. 

At Annabel Trends we pride ourselves on curating a collection of the highest quality, unique gifts, sourced from around the world. Amongst these, you can find perfect presents for new mums. Whatever your budget, there is a whole range of beautiful and thoughtful gifts that are great for an eco baby shower. 

Why mums love muslin

Our amazing selection of natural muslin baby products are made from high-quality, natural fibres. In our range, you’ll see lovely swaddles, bibs, wash cloths and security blankets. For all of these products, you can choose from a striking range of pastel colours. It’s not just blues and pinks either! You can opt for these traditional colours, but you can also choose from a selection of on-trend colours like mint, mustard and rust. 

There’s a reason that muslin is such a popular choice for baby products. This soft double gauze muslin is gentle on your baby’s skin. It has great environmental credentials too – it’s 70% bamboo and 30% cotton. This means it makes a great gift for environmentally-friendly mums. Also in our muslin range, you will spot these adorable koala cutie security blankets – which make an amazing gift for boys or girls. 

All-natural baby gifts

If you’re looking for a funky gift for a new mum, you’ve come to the right place. Annabel Trends have been supplying gorgeous gifts for Aussie mums since we were formed. One of the cutest baby products you’ll see is the natural Grey Marle bunny ears teether. Completely safe for babies to suck and chew, this adorable teether is made from smooth, natural beech wood and soft fabric ears. This product is perfect to help soothe the aches and pains associated with baby teeth coming through. This makes it a perfect eco baby shower gift, which will be very much appreciated for everyone’s peace of mind once the baby starts teething! 

Beautiful cotton booties

Arguably the most traditional baby gift, this gorgeous 100% pure cotton bootie & headband set are an environmentally conscientious take on a classic present. Unlike many mass-produced baby booties, you won’t find any rubber, plastic, nylon or any other chemically treated fabrics in these pretty all-cotton booties. Cotton is an all-natural fabric, so it’s a great gift for this kind of baby shower. You can find a range of different designs, for the most stylish babies!
