  1. Cash

In Singapore, it’s common for family and friends to give Ang Bao (red packet) for baby full month celebration. There is no hard and fast rule how much you need to give. It depends how close you are to the other person. Also depending if you are preparing another gift for the baby or parent – like a combination of both gift and ang bao. Giving cash is practical as the parents can choose how to utilize the money received from all the ang paos. Be it buying a suitable milk formula, diapers or to subsidize the recent hospitalization fees etc. Cash is definitely a flexible and highly desirable gift for baby shower.

  1. Vouchers

New parents have many items to buy for their newborn. You can consider getting vouchers from big department stores like Takashimaya (vouchers with no expiry date!) or Isetan. Singapore Moms share that gift vouchers are good because they can use them to buy whichever they need – even for themselves at times. Such as vouchers/gift cards from mother care stores like Mothercare, Motherworks, and Springmaternity. Based on the feedback received, 1010 sells more reasonable priced items as compared to the rest. Singapore Moms also recommend checking out lazada for bulky items. We advise you to check out respective stores and websites to determine which works best for you or your friend.

  1. Baby Gift Sets

There are so many choices to choose from: baby clothes, milk bottles and nipples, baby wipes, baby shampoo/body wash, baby teether, diapers, and so on. Singapore Moms get to try out all the different brands when they received the gift sets. Provided them opportunities to learn and try these items from respective brands with their baby and help them make a better choice in their own purchase the next time round.

Different motion and equipment depending on the age of the baby. For newborns, you can look at baby slider/swing. It creates a swinging/gliding motion to help comfort the baby. From sweet melodies and blinking lights to spinners (shapes of eg. adorable animals!) and swing timers settings. Most of them are easily fold for storage or travel.

 

  1. Gift for Nursing Mother

Nursing mothers need all sorts of support. You can consider getting supplements or tonics to assist in building her health back. Check out Eu Yan Sang as they sell confinement food and tonic. Surprise the mom with post-natal massage appointment/voucher! She deserves a good massage and break from the daily pumping and changing of diapers. A Boppy nursing pillow would be great as the pillow provides a comfy platform for her baby to rest during breastfeeding and the Mom doesn’t need to hunch over when she nurse.

  1. Diaper Bag

If you plan to buy a diaper bag for the Mom, I would suggest getting her a design that is suitable for both the Mom and Dad to carry. We wouldn’t want any excuses from the man saying it’s too girly to carry the bag and at the same time, a design that is hip, city style and great functionality.

  1. White Noise or Baby Shusher Sound Machine

You must be wondering what this machines does. It’s not commonly sold in Singapore. However, I have friends who purchased this sound machine online and it works miraculously for them! It creates the soothing sound of rushing air. This natural “white noise” sound has been proven to effectively block noises at a broad range of frequencies, so you can get deep, undisturbed sleep all night long.

  1. Hand Blenders

A hand blender will help the Mom, especially in her first year when her baby starts eating solid or puree food in the diet. Hand blender is easy to clean and use. The Mom simply needs to combine all ingredients in a pot or bowl and insert the blade at one end of the blender and blend! You can get a relatively good and simple hand blender (BOSCH ERGOMIX) from Courts at SGD 59 during sale.

  2. Milestone Baby Cardsbaby with milestone card

New parents love taking pictures of their babies, usually for their own keepsakes, but also to share them with relatives and friends. The Milestone Baby Cards are a great way for the new parent to remember the milestones of their baby, while making the pictures of their baby that much more memorable. The new parent can look back on the old photos when their baby has grown up, and reminisce how cute their baby was at 2 months old, or when they first sat up, or when they took their first steps.

Mother of a 1 year-old boy. As a new mom, I faced challenges from putting on multiple hats - as a wife, mother, career woman and slave of my baby. My life has never been so hectic and chaotic. On the bright side, my baby brings me so much joy and new perspectives in life. He made me realised I could do so much more. 😂
