All the planning that goes into welcoming a newborn sure can make the family-to-be busier than ever before. Especially in the days leading up to/ following the birth, making the time for a proper meal can be tough. Your team can help alleviate some of this stress by setting up a group gift for DoorDash or UberEats credit, or even a simple gift card to a favorite local joint. A few simple clicks will get the couple an extremely-deserved, comforting meal.

For parents that still love to cook but won’t have as much time as usual while caring for the little one, Gobble is a great gift option. Everything comes pre-diced, sliced, and prepared, and all you have to do is cook the fresh ingredients!

A fresh meal can’t be better paired with a quality glass of wine, especially after 9 months without it! Consider pairing a meal subscription service with a nice bottle to give the new parents time to relax and unwind.

Speaking of relaxing and unwinding, momma could definitely use something calming after the physical toll of bringing a new life into the world. If you’re a coworker of someone expecting, think about gifting a gift card to your local spa. Spafinder can help you find the best option for the mom-to-be. Or, bring the spa home with a Zeel massage right at home, a foot massager, or massage oils. For an all-around amazing pregnancy subscription box to gift, Bump and Oh Baby Boxes are filled with self-care goodies!

Parents want to know as much as they can to be the best parents they can be. Classic pregnancy books like What to Expect When You’re Expecting and Expecting Better: Why the Conventional Pregnancy Wisdom Is Wrong – and What You Really Need to Know can be of great help in giving them the knowledge they need before, during, and after the big day. You can also help build the baby’s bookshelf early by gifting any classics that your team members enjoy, or check out our pick of Eric Carle’s picture books. Everybody loves The Hungry Caterpillar!


Baby Must-Haves

You can’t go wrong with gifting the essentials! First, check your coworker’s baby registry to see if they have any preferred brands listed. If not, still be mindful if the color or scent you’ll choose is suitable for what they are looking for. If they have specific preferences, this is where an Amazon or Target gift card may come in handy.

If you are looking for sustainable baby clothing brands you can trust as baby shower gifts for coworker, check out MakeMakeOrganics and Pact. For anything bath-related, Babo Botanicals and Babyganics are great options! If their registry has any breastfeeding essentials listed, Medela is a great brand for evidence-based products.

For another great sustainable option, consider gifting the mom-to-be a cloth diaper bundle by either Esembly or Bungies. Your team can also organize a group gift for a diaper subscription from Hello Bello or Dyper to encourage eco-friendly parenting choices!
