One of the most common questions we are asked is ‘do you have anything for boys?” So we have compiled some baby boy gift ideas of our most popular and unique baby boy presents below.
Some of these are handmade by ourselves while others are a complementary addition to our online store.
We have a large selection of baby boy gift ideas which we handmake here in Australia. Below is our complete range which is ideal for any newborn baby boy.
Bibs For boys
Our baby boy bibs are the perfect presents for newborn baby boy. Both practical and stylish this makes for the ultimate gift for baby boy. With a choice of four styles to choose from you have a selection for anyone’s styles. We hand make each one and we love that this will be gifted to a baby at the start of their life
The styles of boys bibs are;
- Boys newborn baby bibs – are the perfect present for any baby boy. With two adjustable snap fasteners, you can make them larger as the baby grows.
- Boys bandana bibs – When style counts, or they are an excessive drooler you can’t go pst our bandana bibs for boys. The layer between the front and the back captures excess drool while keeping the babies clothes and skin dryer for longer.
- Boys Larger bibs – Designed for those messy eaters, our larger bib has greater coverage to keep their clothes as clean as possible.
- One year boys bib– Be prepared to celebrate the little guys first birthday in style with our grey boys first birthday bib. This is the same style as the larger bib however screen printed in Australia with the word “one” to let everyone know who’s the birthday boy. These one bibs make for the perfect presents for 1 year old boy.
All of our boys’ bibs have the bamboo cotton mix backing for softness and it’s ability to absorb moisture and drool. Coupled with the cool and on-trend stylish prints these bibs make for the best baby boy presents.

Another stylish and practical presents for newborn baby boy is our boys burp cloths are a hit with new parents. These are also hand made in Australia with the cotton bamboo backing. This is especially important as the parents will be wiping little spit away from the babies mouth regularly. These boys burp cloths are extremely practical and are primarily designed as burping cloths, however, in desperate times we have heard people use these as a changing mat and a small towel.
Teething is such a difficult time as a parent, especially a first-time parent. You want to do everything possible to reduce the amount of pain the little boy is in. We, therefore, make a selection of natural wooden teething rings so they can chew and start their teething development. The two styles we make are;
- Bunny Teether – The bunny teething ring is a natural alternative for when your baby boy is teething. The bunny ears are designed for him to hold on to while he chews on the wooden hardwood ring.
- Love Heart Teether – Show how much you love your little guy with this heart-shaped teether. Our very own design has the pattern on both sides so your baby boy can teeth in style.
We love that they are made with natural materials. The front of the boys’ teethers is a cotton fabric while the back is a bamboo cotton mix on the bunny style and cotton print for the Love Heart style. The ring itself is made from a hardwood which is ideal for teething.
We take safety very seriously and have had both our teethers for boys independently tested and approved to Australian standards.
