Christmas gifts for new babies
If there has been a recent new arrival in your family or you are expecting a new baby before Christmas, then you might not have much time to shop for presents, so here are a few excellent ideas for new baby gifts:
For something to wear and keep the little one warm, why not try these Fresk Organic Cotton Hats? Available in white, baby blue and duck egg, these simple and sweet cotton hats from Dutch brand Fresk are ideal for keeping delicate heads cosy this winter.
Or, for an adorable addition to the nursery why not try this enchanting Grey Cloud Baby Mobile? Featuring a soft cloud that sparkles when it catches the light and multicoloured pom poms, it’s the perfect adornment to hang in the nursery for baby to marvel at.
For an animal themed nursery there’s the Elephant Parade Nursery Mobile from Petit Pehr. This mobile features a felted wool elephant and pom poms in a charming hanging circle and is presented in a cute box, making it perfect for a new baby gift this Christmas.
Christmas gifts for babies under 6 months
If you’ve already got over the excitement of a new baby in the family, but are wondering what to get for a little one who will still be under 6 months at Christmas, then here are a few ideas from our latest collections:
Snuffy Miffy Dog is the latest addition to the Miffy soft toy collection and is perfect for nap time snuggles. Suitable from birth and in a cute cream corduroy design, Snuffy Miffy Dog is sure to be a popular gift this Christmas.
If shopping for ethical products is high on your list or is important to the family you’re buying for, then you’ll love our range of Albetta babygrows. For Christmas we particularly like this cotton candy striped Crochet Gingerbread Man Babygrow which is certain to help everyone get in the festive spirit.
Parents will thank you for buying anything that makes their lives easier and bibs are one of those baby accessories that you just can’t have too many of. This Noah’s Ark Baby Bib Set from Petit Pehr features fully reversible bibs with cute animal patterns that will make mealtimes a cinch!
Christmas gifts for babies 6 -12 months
For babies that are shuffling around, crawling and sitting, there are so many more options for Christmas gifts that will engage them. Here are just a few ideas from our collection:
Stimulate the senses and get ready for reading with this Good Night Me, Good Night You Soft Book from Wee Gallery. Perfect for tiny hands, this soft book will attach to a stroller or cot to engage little ones and help develop their language and visual skills.
If you are looking for Christmas gifts for babies from 6 - 12 months you still can’t go far wrong with a baby grow or pyjama set, but if you’re looking for something a little extra special why not consider some first baby shoes from Inch Blue? These adorable little shoes are made using the softest leather and have an elasticated ankle, making them easy to put on and stay on!
This Christmas why not give the gift of a good night’s sleep? New parents will thank you for anything that helps their baby have a comfortable night and a baby sleeping bag is the ideal gift for fidgety babies that kick off their blankets in the night. Bed time might feel like a circus, but hopefully with this Petit Pehr 2.5 tog Circus Print Sleeping Bag the only acrobatics will be in the charming bright print of the sleeping bag itself.
