Welcoming a new baby into the family is such a joyous occasion. Tiny hands, little toes, that newborn baby smell, and the size of them? Wow! I had forgotten just how small and lovely new babies are until our daughter Aurora was born in April 2021.
We love to spoil our nieces and nephews, and our own daughters too, so I’ve put together this new baby gift guide, designed to give you a few ideas of some more practical, and fun, gifts to celebrate Christmas with.
