Our Story

Hi, I’m Martina, founder of The Essential Baby Box and Mummy to one. When I had my son I was surprised to find there were no quality baby hampers in Sydney packed with essential baby items. I attended mummies groups and heard numerous stories of disappointment over the impractical gifts parents had received from well-meaning friends and family. During the late nights, early mornings and long days I sat feeding my son, I realised I needed to do something about the gap in the market and that I needed to make life a little easier for expectant parents, so I started The Essential Baby Box.

My vision for baby hampers in Australia

I had a clear vision of the ideal newborn baby gift hamper, a style of baby hampers Australia had not yet seen. More than just a basket packed full of impractical or low-cost gifts, I knew mums wanted a show-stopping box filled with quality essential items that would wow them as soon as they opened the lid. I knew mums wanted top quality products for their babies that felt soft, wore and washed well and that were trusted brands. I spoke to many expectant mothers and learnt they didn’t want off the shelf clothing, they wanted boutique style clothing that would capture their baby’s uniqueness; this is why we create unique baby hampers containing clothing you’ll rarely see anywhere else.

A celebration in a box

At The Essential Baby Box, the team and I strive to create and deliver a celebration in a box; a celebration of new life and parenthood. We have all experienced the joy of a new baby and want to be able to pass on that joy through each and every piece we have carefully selected, right down to the ribbon around the box. We’ve designed shopping with The Essential Baby Box to be easy and streamlined; just shop our baby hampers online by viewing each box and photographs of each included item, select your box of choice, and follow the easy checkout process. We deliver baby hampers to Sydney, Australia and the world over. I’m so glad to have you visiting The Essential Baby Box and am sure you will be able to find something special for your own baby or as a gift for a loved one. We love babies at The Essential Baby Box.
