Baby gifts can be a real 'mare to find. If you’re not a mother yourself, you usually forget until the last minute and then don’t have a clue what to get and if you are, you don’t have the time to go and trawl the chichi baby stores to find something to suit.
So, we’ve searched high and low for the best baby gifts the internet has to offer, making your baby shower or new baby meeting prep 100 times easier. All you have to do is peruse our range of presents, from personalised cushions and trinkets to day of the week bibs and rattles, and choose the one you (and they’ll) like best.
If you’re going down the sentimental route, Tales From The Earth have a genuinely un-naff selection of trinkets, from jewellery to keepsakes. We love the sterling silver pieces, particularly the zoo animals and the ‘World To Explore’ box with a tiny globe inside. Now, that’s our kind of sentimental.
Personalised baby gifts are always going to be appreciated. Not only does personalizing anything make it more desirable, whether it’s for a baby or not, but it shows you put time and effort into acquiring it. Leave enough time for the personalisation and delivery to avoid any of those ‘I bought a present but…’ kind of excuses.
Then there are the totally adorable clothes, shoes and toys which are fun to buy and which the parents probably wouldn’t splash out on as, let’s face it, they are pretty expensive for someone who won’t remember wearing it and who’ll grow out of it in a few months. This is why, though teeny gingham dresses get our vote, it makes more sense to go for faintly unisex pieces like these Petit Bateau dungarees. Think of the siblings.
