Stuck for newborn gift ideas this new year? Don't stress, you're not the only one...

It has become apparent to me recently that I am at that age where all my friends are having babies. Now, this suits me fine - I adore babies - I can have lots of cute cuddle time and then hand baby back when it's nappy changing time! However, as someone whose closest thing to having babies is her kitty cats, I do sometimes find it difficult to choose newborn gifts. Do I get something practical? Do I get something for them to wear that they will grow out of in two weeks time? I really hate to buy presents that aren't usable, or enjoyable, so sometimes the prospect of purchasing for a newborn can be rather daunting.

I am sure I am not the only baby-free (not yet crazy) cat lady around who is in this boat, and for that reason I decided it would be a good idea to share a few of my favourites...

 

My favourites

 

Girls at play

For lovely little ladies, I absolutely adore this vintage inspired "Girls at play" baby grow currently on sale in our Totnes and Looe stores (this will also be available online very soon).





Although cute and girly, I find that this is not "overly" girly, as I know some of my friends are overwhelmed with the number of pink outfits given to their little ones! The baby grow is size 0 - 6 months, which means depending on the individual, gives baby a chance to grow in to it and hopefully get lots of wear from it.

 

 Ahoy there matey! Get yerself the best rattle in town!

For a more interactive gift, I love this Soft Pirate Rattle

After all, you can't really go wrong with pirates, and this rattly little fella even comes with an eye patch - plus, currently selling at just £6.99, for those of us on a budget he won't break the bank.

Most adorable baby blanket ever

I love it! I love Mr Snuggly Patches Panda Blanket so much! If only they did an adult sized blankie....

Until they make one my size, I will be buying this for every baby I know, as I just can't resist the super soft adorable snugglyness! 

Other ideas....


Of course, these are just my personal favourites....we have many other options available depending on personal taste. Please feel free to take your time looking over the "from birth" section on our website for many other ideas. I promise it can be fun and does not have to be stressful - happy gift giving everyone!
