Having just stopped work last week I have been amazed at how generous and creative people are when it comes to baby presents. There are some really fun ideas that are beautiful to receive, whilst also being really practical.
The ones that really stand out are the baby bouquets (baby clothes wrapped to look at flower bouquets) from companies such as bouquetbouquet.co.uk (also do gifts for grown ups too!). Just type ‘baby clothes bouquet’ into Google and you’ll be amazed by the range of options available.
For my first child, I received a really lovely travel blanket with my child’s name and birth date on (very handy after the three day labour when memories of dates were a bit blurred!). It was also soft to touch, easy to clean and quick to dry – making it the perfect accessory. There are a number of companies that offer this style of gift for reasonable prices such as Born Gifted.
Considering how much is going on in people’s lives, it’s really lovely to receive something a little special for the birth of your child. If it can be practical too, what could be better?
Would love to hear any quirky presents you’ve received that have really helped you with your newborn.
