The perfect baby gift hamper


When you're selecting a gift for new parents, it can be easy to get overwhelmed. Do you get them something practical or indulgent? Would they prefer sweet mementos or useful, everyday items? Welcoming a baby into the world is a time full of unique joys and challenges. You want to equip the parents and bub for all the glorious firsts, as well as the sleepless nights. Here are the three must-have items that will make your baby hamper unforgettable.


Nurturing baby skincare


When sourcing baby skincare to gift to a newborn, it's important to find products designed specifically for babies. That may seem obvious, but you'd be surprised! Many products on the market are advertised as being suitable for both baby and adult skin. This isn't ideal, as both need vastly different care! Ensure you're giving bub the care and attention they need by choosing products that don't irritate or dehydrate their precious skin.


At The Hamper Emporium, we only select baby products that:


  • Use hypoallergenic ingredients

  • Maintain the pH balance of a baby's skin

  • Are free of parabens, dyes and phthalates

  • Do not have alcohol or harsh chemicals in them

This well-known French skincare company has produced the delightful Shea skincare range for babies. Used as a cosmetic ingredient for many years, Shea butter is the fat extracted from the nuts of the Shea tree. It has a lovely creamy texture and is suitable for even the most delicate of baby skin.


The Shea tree is one of the world's most sustainable products. Found in the Western Africa savannah, they are native to the area and grow freely, not in dense plantations. Shea butter also contributes to the local economy and habitats.
