Welcome back to Part 3, the final instalment of Boxit’s Gifts Guide to Celebrating and Commemorating Life’s Milestones. If you have not read Part 1 and 2 of this blog, be sure to check them out also!

As we have discussed in the previous two blogs, sending a special gift basket is the perfect way to share in and celebrate life’s marvellous milestones, so let’s finish looking at these gift occasions and consider the gifting opportunities and gift ideas in more detail:

Baby Shower Gift Baskets

The arrival of a newborn baby can be a very expensive time for families, so what better way to show thoughtfulness and care than to host a baby shower party for the expectant mother and father with their close family and friends. A baby shower is the perfect time to give an impactful gift of care with practical baby products and accessories to ensure all is ready for the impending new arrival. Also consider gifting baby themed products to decorate the nursery, baby toys or their first baby board book. Buying baby presents online at Boxit Gifts is easy and we will deliver your gift basket directly to your gift recipient for that all important surprise gift delivery excitement, or to you to present to your gift recipient in person. Remember to include your genuine message of love and encouragement for the gift card which our team will handwrite to accompany your baby gift basket selection.

Baby Gifts in Celebration of the Safe Arrival of a Newborn

There is just nothing more exciting than the birth of a new baby! We want to share the joy of the safe arrival of the newborn, welcoming them to the world, congratulating the new parents and expressing our heartfelt love and care. What better way to do this than with a quality baby gift basket of care filled with unique baby gift products! Boxit Gifts has a fun range of special baby gift ideas online for whānau and friends, so even if you are far away, we are here to help by sending beautiful baby gifts, Auckland and New Zealand wide.

When considering what baby gift products to send, a great place to begin is with quality essential baby clothing and shoes. Our top picks for the new baby layette set are cosy and colourful onesies, NZ made merino wool baby socks and Bobux leather baby soft sole shoes. Bobux leather baby shoes are designed in New Zealand and come recommended by podiatrists and paediatricians. They incorporate a breathable leather or suede upper with stretch elastic opening, removable inner sole and non-slip suede sole, they are super flexible allowing children to move naturally and are great for babies from newborn, to sitting, crawling and learning to walk. Also popular for new arrivals are gifts of quality baby linen and bedding. Boxit Gifts incorporates a sumptuous Sherpa style baby blanket in a number of baby gift box combinations. Available in a gorgeous soft blue or soft pink cotton cable knit on one side and plush fleece on the other, these baby blankets are a great size at 75cm x 100cm and they are perfect for everyday use in the new nursery, basinet or cot. These Sherpa baby blankets have been an absolute favourite baby gift product with our new mum gift recipients!

Also consider baby accessories to decorate the baby’s room, educational baby board books and baby gift products for mealtimes and to help with teething. Our favourites are the Peter Rabbit “Once upon a time…” wooden book ends with a sweet Beatrix Potter "I Love You" baby board book - the perfect bedtime rhyme for babies and toddlers. The baby board book features a peekaboo mirror surprise at the end so that little ones can see themselves. Another thoughtful present is the Peter Rabbit Wedgwood brand bowl and mug set being a quality mealtime baby gift set which can be kept and cherished for years to come. Or the Bug-A-Loop Teether with a brightly coloured honey bee, butterfly, ladybirds and beads for baby to gently massage sore gums.

No baby gift is complete without a cute and cuddly plush soft toy for the newborn! Our current cast of characters includes our huggable Winnie the Pooh Bear plush soft toy from Disney Baby featuring a jingle in his rumbly tumbly and crinkle in his ears. A great educational baby gift soft toy option as babies love to touch and feel new textures, particularly with their mouths and soft toys can provide the perfect mix for developing sensory skills and encouraging emotional and social growth. Or see our cute Peter Rabbit and Jemima Puddle Duck soft toys. These loveable characters are featured in the timeless tales of Beatrix Potter which have been enjoyed by generations of children.

Do not forget to add a special little something for the new mum and dad or older siblings, so the whole family is included in your good wishes gift hamper! Many of our baby gift hampers include a healthy or sweet treats for the new parents and older siblings to share. Add on gift options include a calming herbal tea collection gift box, a healthy New Zealand dark and rich honey collection gift box with wooden honey dipper, luxury chocolates, kiwi handmade coconut ice and mixed fudge, traditional nougat or a NZ favourite lolly scramble gift box. Other well liked gift additions are our gorgeous Cote Noire perfumed flower vase room diffuser gift boxes for her and our New Dad cufflinks gift box for him, so you are spoilt for choice!

Gift Ideas for Christenings and Naming Ceremonies

Families and friends often gather together to celebrate the arrival of a new baby with a christening ceremony or a naming ceremony usually held within a few months of the new baby’s arrival. In some families there is a tradition of handing down a christening gown to dress the baby for the ceremony and often family and friends share food and drinks following the ceremony. When it comes to christening gifts and naming ceremony gifts traditional options are timeless gifts with thoughtful keepsakes like jewellery, silver or pewter baby ware gift products and quality fine bone china dinnerware - gift items that can be treasured for many years to come. However, more modern christening gifts and naming ceremony gifts now include a wide range of baby gift products from quality baby clothing to sumptuous baby linen and bedding and beautiful nursery decor items.

If you have a specific baby themed gift in mind which you cannot find online, contact Boxit Gifts and we would be very happy to customise a baby gift basket from our unique range to suit.
