Bedtime basics baby shower gifts
New parents, we salute you! Here at Leif and Lillie, we understand that bedtime can be just as stressful as it is sacred. After a long day of working, feeding and cleaning, all you want is for your baby to fall asleep (and stay asleep), right? (Is that really too much to ask?!)
Now, while we can’t guarantee they’ll sleep through the night, we know that investing in the right products can make your bedtime routine a little smoother.
So go ahead and sing, swaddle or cradle your little one off to sleep with some of our favourite time-for-bed items.
Cam Cam Copenhagen Muslin Blanket
This signature staple is an absolute must-have for every new parent. Made from breathable and lightweight organic cotton, the blanket can be used as a swaddle, light cover or even as a decorative touch in baby’s new nursery. Wrap it up, and get ready to receive your Godmother of the Year Award!
The Tartine et Chocolate Bunny
Do you remember your first soft toy? What it looked like, felt like, smelt like even? That first stuffed animal is – and will remain – special, so it has got to stand the test of time. Our fluffy, floppy-eared bunny is an adorable bedtime companion for any infant and makes for a timelessly chic baby shower gift that everyone will remember.
Here is the promise of the perfect ambience to lull baby off to dreamland. Whimsical and charming, it also makes for a gorgeous nursery feature.
Get your hands on a super cute pram accessory to decorate baby’s new ride. This chain features a beautifully embroidered leaf, starfish and seashell in warm blush tones. And it comes packaged in a sweet little box, making it the perfect baby shower gift.

As philanthropist Rose Kennedy once said, “Life isn’t a matter of milestones, but of moments”… which is why you’ve got to savour every one. This classic memory box helps new parents to store their baby’s cherished moments in a safe place. (And trust us, sentimental gifts always go down a treat.)
Konges Slojd Umami Carrier Swaddle
The Umami swaddle is suitable for babies and toddlers up to two years of age, and it is the ultimate baby shower gift if you’re looking to spend that little bit extra.
The carrier is super soft and comfy for parent and child alike. The waistband is padded to evenly distribute baby’s weight, and the ergonomic knee-to-knee function is specially designed to support the positioning of a child’s knees and hips.
Finally, the sling can be adjusted into three different positions to keep baby snug at all times. Comfortable and convenient – we told you it was a good one!
