I was told that if it's marked gift, then you won't have to pay anything.
It could be grandma sending you something for the baby, so they won't charge you for it.
Not sure if the value (above CHF 100) would change the rule.
you can find the regulations on Swiss post website.

Generally up to 66 fr is tax free, in case of books 209 and in case of presents 100. If the item is more expensive, you will have to pay the taxes even if it was a present.
