Uniquely Natural Baby Gift Essentials

New parents are becoming increasingly environmentally conscious, with a preference for more organic and eco-friendly baby products, décor, and furniture. There has also been a noticeable trend in parents wanting to keep the baby’s gender a surprise until the baby is born. This means that in addition to opting for more organic baby products, the baby gift registry will also demand more gender-neutral baby shower gifts.

This makes it a somewhat tricky to shop for unique baby shower gifts that are not only made from safe, natural, and sustainable materials, but that are also neutral in appearance. When shopping for organic baby gifts, it is important to remember that baby furniture or gifts should not only be environmentally friendly, but should also be beautiful, safe, and functional.

Natural Baby Essentials Checklist

To make it a little easier to plan for an eco-friendly baby shower, we have put together a list of baby essentials that will also be perfectly suited as gender-neutral baby shower gifts.


Eco-friendly Baby Furniture Ideas

Environmentally friendly baby furniture made from natural sustainable materials – such as Rattan Wood, Cane, Wicker and Bamboo – is the perfect choice. Rattan baby furniture is not only 100% biodegradable, lightweight and sturdy, but its natural appearance will also beautifully compliment any baby nursery design or colour-scheme.

Due to its versatility and natural appearance, Rattan wood works well in any gender-neutral bedroom. Eco-friendly wooden furniture is usually made from renewable materials (such as cane, bamboo, or rattan), making it the perfect choice for children’s wooden furniture as they are completely environmentally friendly. We have suggested a few stylish rattan baby nursery furniture pieces from Tobbie & Co to add to the baby registry.
