There's nothing quite as entrancing as a newborn. That scent… their jerky little movements...the endless cuddles. So it's understandable you'll want to buy the new person in your life something special at Christmas. Whether you're shopping small for a first visit pressie, or getting a bigger gift as a group purchase, here are some top picks for festive gifts for newborns.

It's understandable you'll want to buy the new person in your life something special at Christmas

1. MUSLINS

You. Can. Not. Have. Too. Many. Muslins. This is the first law of babycraft. So any new parent will be delighted with some quality muslins and the good news is we have a wonderful array to choose from, in multi-packs of tonal plain colours or cool modern prints.

2. AN HEIRLOOM BLANKET

Mama Designs Blanket

Whether one day old or 100 years old, a cosy blanket is a thing of joy, so they make a great gift idea for a new bundle. From nostalgic, illustrative designs to block colour, cellular baby blankets we have gorgeous choices to suit different budgets and tastes.

3. ORGANIC GOODIES

They've been tucked up in the womb for nine months, and then boom….life on planet 🌍 commences. Organic products make great gift ideas, because you know brands have baby's wellbeing at the heart of the design. An Organic Zip Sleepsuit from KIDLY Label makes a wonderful Christmas Day outfit and everything from Danish brand Fabelab - whether it's delightful dolls, magical muslins or brilliant bibs and bathmitts - it's all organic and gorge.

4. SOME BATHTIME LUXURY

Eating, sleeping and washing - that's pretty much the order of the day for the first few months. So hooded towels and robes make for great pressies and we stock a wide range to cater to various budgets - plus you can doll them up post-dip as a bunny, lion, dinosaur or even a hippo!

5. FIRST TOYS

Petit Collage Soft Book

Monochrome items with high-contrast designs encourage brand new babies to focus, so the black and white Wee Gallery Art Cards are always a popular gift pick and any kind of soft baby book can be stimulating to little ones from very early days.

A rattle or squeaker for a newborn won't ever go out of fashion and we have loads to choose from in all shapes and sizes that will stimulate their senses - and look darn cute in their little hands too!

6. INVESTMENT ITEMS

Babies grow and change so quickly that it can feel like you aren’t getting your money’s worth with all of their gear. Thankfully, there are now plenty of products emerging into the market, which evolve to accommodate their changing needs and these make wonderful big ticket gift ideas.

The Basket Room

The Moses Basket by The Basket Room is a brilliant group gift. Ethically made in Northern Ghana, each basket is woven by hand, from veta vera grass and leather, with every one a little different from the other. Made with love and ideal for little snoozes and big sleeps too, it comes with a foam mattress and cotton sheet. When it is outgrown, it makes a lovely storage for toys and teddies.

A play gym is a great joint present and there are plenty of models with removable toys that can also be used in the car. We stock lots of playmats in stylish colours that can be used for many years - first as a safe spot for tummy time, thereafter for a reading nook or as a bedroom rug.
