Mummy Must Have Review | The Natural Gift Box Co

Have you ever been looking for the perfect baby shower gift, but have no idea where to start? Want to spoil a new mum, but don't know what she'll need? Perhaps you want to spoil your partner while she's pregnant, but have no idea what to get {no offence guys, but most men don't really know where to start}. Gift boxes are an awesome alternative when you need to find the perfect gift for a loved one, but can't think of anything. 

But what if you want to put together your own gift box, but don't want to source all the products from a million different shops? Or you have the perfect idea, but you want everything professionally wrapped and sent straight to your loved one? Well, I've discovered the perfect small business which can help in all of these situations.








The Natural Gift Box Co is an online business {based out of central Queensland} that specialises in purposeful gift boxes full of organic and natural products for mums and bubs to make pregnancy and new motherhood less stressful and more relaxing. Owner Kim has hand picked a selection of essential eco-conscious skincare, personal care and baby products from trusted Australian small businesses that she's tried and tested herself. She's put together various combinations of these gorgeous products to provide 13 different curated gift boxes for numerous occasions. In addition to this The Natural Gift Box Co also sells the majority of their product range individually and allows customers to design custom gift boxes or buy gift vouchers, making gift giving easy and convenient for everyone involved. I was lucky enough to put together my own custom gift box recently and this is what I thought of the process and the products. 

To be honest I normally wouldn't put together a gift box for myself, in fact I struggle to justify buying anything for myself {I'm sure most mum's can relate}. However, after being house bound for the last few months of this pregnancy, thanks to extremely painful pelvic pain, being able to put together a selection of beautiful products just for myself {without leaving my house} was fantastic. It's amazing how quickly I go stir crazy being stuck at home, but receiving a beautiful package in the mail definitely helped to lift my spirits. Having such gorgeous products arrive straight to my door was super convenient {and meant I could avoid the hassle of sending T out to get items for me that he had no idea about}

Personally, when I choose gifts for others I try to be super practical, so when I put together my own gift box I deliberately chose products for both when our new baby has arrived and some to help me relax and prepare for the birth. I chose a mix between necessary items that I knew would come in handy for my hospital stay {disposable breast pads and maternity pads} and luxury items like the pregnancy bath tea and also a healing mama bath soak for once everything is getting back to normal after birth. The bath tea has been an ah-mazing way to relax at the end of the day and all the other items are already safely packed in my hospital bag {which I've finally packed, thankgod}.
Putting together my gift box online was super easy as there's a simple drop down menu to choose from. I'm familiar with the majority of the products stocked by The Natural Gift Box Co so it didn't take me very long to pick what I wanted. One thing I really loved is that there's a product information page on the website which lists brand information and ingredient lists for each of the products stocked which made it really easy for me to make a choice between the products I wasn't familiar with. This information is also super helpful for those buying gifts for people with allergies.

As you can see from the photos above the products arrive beautifully packaged within a cardboard gift box. It felt like my birthday unwrapping it and I almost didn't want to open the individual products because they looked so pretty {almost}.

The Natural GiftBox Co is a great option for a baby shower gift, a push present {if you're lucky enough to have a partner who knows what they are} or as a lovely gift for a new mum once the baby has arrived. Without a doubt what sets them apart from other gift giving companies is the ability to design your own gift box and that it can include any combination of products you like {from the selection available} and there's no minimum $ spend when creating a custom gift box. I love that this allows the gift box to be truly tailored to the recipient. I also love that when you order any gift from The Natural Gift Box Co you know you're supporting a number of other Australian small businesses at the same time. If you have a special occasion coming up for a loved one in your life then I definitely recommend you browse through The Natural Gift Box Co website. You can also keep up to date with gift ideas and promotions by following them on Facebook and Instagram.

Have you ever been stuck trying to find the perfect gift for someone?

  5. So often when a new baby is born, all the presents are for the bub. I still remember a couple of lovely people who gave me something like this, to spoil me too!

  6. I love the concept that you can design your own custom gift box rather than having to select an already made up gift box.

    All the best with the arrival of your baby!
