Gifts for the new addition

Posted by Miss B On April - 12 - 2010

I am at that age where everyone I know is having babies and I am keen to discover unique gifts that I can get for them. As my sister-in-law pointed out to me after the birth of my gorgeous nephew, she didn’t have to buy any clothes, toys or books for him for over a year – the gifts just kept coming. So how do you make your gift standout from the crowd, especially when time is short?

Shopping online is a great way to get inimitable items for the new bub.

Clothes are the main thing that people tend to buy a new born and with some lovely quirky outfits out there these days, you can really match the outfit to the parents.

The dresses for little girls at Crème Anglaise ( are adorable – think of mini Mary Quant. Their personalised bunting is also a great present to welcome the new arrival.

Another great baby shop online is No Added Sugar ( The trend for stripes this season isn’t just for adults, they have a great range of playsuits for the trendy tot. And they come with great tongue-in-cheek motives such as ‘menace, and ‘Mummy’s arm candy’.

Nothing says luxury like cashmere and Bonnie Baby ( has a beautiful range of blankets, romper suits and cardigans that have the luxurious feel of cashmere but are mixed with just enough cotton to make them machine washable on a gentle cycle – what new mother has time to hand wash!

I love the range of crocheted toys by Anne Claire Petit (available at Childrensalon Treasure is also a great place to pick up designer clothes and toys such as the gorgeously desirable Dior Rag Doll for up-and-coming fashionistas or the Chloé silk ivory pinafore dress.

Don’t forget the new mum who may feel a little overwhelmed. Products by Mamma Mio ( are designed specifically for the mum-to-be and are gentle, luxurious and smell great too but most importantly of all they are safe to use with your new baby, which is important.

A gift certificate for a treatment to be used when dad is looking after the baby is a great idea too. Wahanda ( allows you to buy great deals often at discounted prices. If you subscribe to their Mobdeals you will get daily offers of deals that can be as much as 80 per cent off. Best of all the gift certificate will only put the value of what you have purchased and not what you paid for it!
