What do I buy my friends for their new baby?

Posted on

Choosing a baby shower or newborn baby gift can be a bit of a headache if it is not something you do frequently. Here are some useful tips to help you in choosing your special gift.


Essential Baby Items

You can never have enough sleepsuits, vests, bibs, hats and blankets, but choose the 0-3 months size or bigger rather than the newborn size, as newborn babies can grow out of the newborn size in a matter of weeks. These items are especially helpful to new parents that are welcoming their first baby and are used all year round.

A baby blanket is an ideal choice, you can never have enough blankets as they are so useful and the excellent quality and unique designs of our blankets, will set your gift apart from the rest. Shop Now

Choose Cotton Clothing Where Possible

Cotton is an absorbent breathable natural fabric that stops moisture building up between the skin and clothing. The cotton fibres in clothing hold the fabric away from the skin further allowing more air to be trapped between the skin and fabric which helps with insulation and comfort. Cotton fabric rarely causes allergic reactions.

Neutral gifts

If you don’t know the gender of the baby choose white, cream or yellow, colours that would be suitable for either a boy or a girl. Simple designs ensure the gift will be suitable for either gender. Shop Neutral Gifts

Practical & Fun

Incorporating something practical like a baby towel with some fun bath toys makes a useful but cute/fun present. A clothing gift set which is practical but also includes a cute soft toy or rattle makes a lovely gift. Shop Now


Thoughtful keepsake gifts such as a Classic baby keepsake book to record baby’s milestones, or photo frames make a special gift that can be cherished forever. Classic baby books are educational and can also make a fantastic gift for new parents and parents to be.
