There's nothing quite like a brand new baby. That special scent… their jerky little movements...the endless cuddles. So it's understandable you'll want to buy them a special gift; and that’s where we come in 😉. Whether you are shopping small for a new addition or picking out a bigger baby shower gift, here is our guide for giving to newborns.
Newborn days come with all the feels. There’s the cuddles, lack of sleep and the raging hormones all coexisting. Yet, despite the challenging moments, they're really only teeny tiny for such a short time and you always end up looking back, desperate for one more sleepy cuddle. Amongst the sleepiness, it’s important to take loads of photos and track all the amazing milestones such as the first smile, so the Milestone Cards are ideal to put into a DIY baby shower hamper. They are the modern alternative to a baby book and the illustrative designs are just too cute.
An Heirloom Blanket
Whether one day old or 100 years old, being cosy under a blanket is the best and they make a great gift idea for a new bundle, which can be passed down through the generations too. From nostalgic, illustrative designs to block colour, cellular baby blankets there are gorgeous choices to suit different budgets and tastes.
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.
From lotions and towels to use after those first few baths, such as the Liewood Augusta Hooded Towel there’s some great ideas to cater to various budgets. Preparing for your own special arrival? The Organic Zoo collection makes a wonderful ‘going home’ outfit.
Introduction to toys
You probably won’t be giving a newborn a rattle the day they arrive into the world, but within a few weeks, you may like to introduce some newborn-friendly toys. Soft items with black and white patterns are sure winners, as the high-contrast designs encourage brand new babies to focus. The Wee Gallery Cuddle Comforter and Liewood Betty Fabric Book are both suitable from birth and encourage crucial, sensory development.
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.
Whether you are buying for your own bundle or grouping with others to get a more expensive baby shower gift, here’s a run-down of some perfect investment items, which can be used from day one.
The BabyBjorn Bouncer Bliss Mesh can be used from birth up to two years, with three recline positions as a babies needs change. Its natural bouncing mechanism means you don’t need to go hunting for batteries to get it rocking and the stylish design will fit in seamlessly into any modern home too.

The BabyBjorn Baby Carrier One can be used from birth, up until three years old, with an ergonomic design to accommodate growing babies in different carrying positions.
