Any parent and soon-to-be parent knows how stressful it can be to prepare for the introduction of a baby into the family. From planning out meals to packing the perfect diaper bag, there’s a lot to think about. A baby shower is a way to not only show your excitement for the parent(s), but it’s also a way for you to express your support for them. What better way than to make sure they’re the most prepared they can be while also living out their sustainable, eco-friendly values?
Our team has selected just the perfect assortment of gift ideas so you can pick which one(s) are the right gift for you. No need to decide between something stylish, healthy for the baby, or good for the planet. We’ve got you covered on all three!
Reusable Cloth Diaper
Every year, over 37 million diapers end up in the landfill and take about 500 years to break down! Not only is this incredibly wasteful, but these diapers are typically made from unsustainable materials. Instead of opting for single-use diapers, you can help the parent(s) prepare with some Reusable Cloth Diapers from Esembly. They’re made from 100% recycled polyester and have a waterproof TLU laminate so the baby can romp around without getting messy. Plus, Esembly is part of 1% for the planet so 1% of all sales go toward environmental non-profits!
Emerson Silicone Teething Necklace
When it comes to teething, pain is no joke! And since babies can’t just tell us when they’re uncomfortable or hurting, it’s up to us to make sure they feel soothed. With the Emerson Silicone Teething Necklace from Chewable Charm, the baby can feel supported during a crucial growth stage. Made from FDA-approved and food-grade silicone, this necklace is naturally non-toxic so the parent(s) won’t have to worry about their little one putting their gorgeous teether in their mouth.
Mini Flip Baby Walker
The perfect gift for a soon-to-be adventurous toddler, the Mini Flip Baby Walker from Wishbone Design Studio is bound to be used every day. It’s also made with sustainably harvested poplar wood which makes it lightweight too! Moreover, it can be easily converted into a walker and has enough space to store toys on the inside. What an excellent alternative to conventional plastic bike toys!
Pregnancy Perineal Spray
If the baby is coming via pregnancy, the Pregnancy Perineal Spray by Fat and the Moon is the perfect gift! This spray is made with witch hazel and lavender, which makes it naturally soothing. Additionally, it’s packaged in a reusable and recyclable glass spray bottle which can be easily repurposed. Use it as cleaning spray, to water plants, or something else. Give the gift of comfort with this perfect option!
Indie All Terrain Stroller
For the parent(s) always on the run, the Indie All Terrain Stroller from Bumbleride is the ideal choice. Lightweight and compact, this stroller is made with OEKO-Tex certified 100% recycled PET fabric with a PFC-free water repellant. That means the baby will be safe and dry no matter where the adventure takes them. Plus, the handlebars are made with 25% recycled ocean plastic, which helps to clean up our oceans and protect marine life. They’re also offered in a variety of colors, like Sea Glass and Clay. With so many options to choose from, every parent(s) can rest assured they’re getting the right one!
Chamomile and Calendula Baby Balm
The perfect add-on to any diaper bag or stroller is the Chamomile and Calendula Baby Balm from Badger. It’s made with extra virgin olive oil and chamomile oil which makes it perfect for sensitive skin that needs a little extra loving (baby or parent!). And since you’re supporting a Certified B Corp, you know you’re doing good caring for the planet and people. You’ll probably be so impressed with this formulation, you’ll want to get yourself one (or two!).
Frolicking Lambs Recycled Gift Paper
If you need a little help in the packaging department, look no further than the Frolicking Lambs Recycled Gift Paper from Wrappily! Designed with lovely prancing lambs and light green foliage (it’s reversible!), this wrapping paper is perfect for a baby shower. Plus, it’s reusable and printed on recycled newspaper and uses soy-based ink, so you can feel good about all aspects of gifting.
