In 2020 we’ve been fortunate to have a new baby in our immediate family and also we’re expecting a new baby ourselves in Spring 2021! I’ve put together a selection of Christmas gift ideas for new parents and babies that I love, and think new parents will too!
Having a small baby often means having significantly less time for yourself. I remember struggling to have a warm drink most days, as the moment it was ready Daisy would need be and I’d be busy until it went cold! The Ohelo coffee tumblers are perfect for keeping drinks hot (or cold).
100% leakproof sip lids that you can drink from any angle means they’re ideal for those early morning feeds, or nights when you are struggling to stay awake and need a hot drink to keep you going. I especially love that these are UK made!
The fantastic Mama’s Moments Maternity Kit gift set is ideal for expectant parents. A range of delightful naturally derived products including a cooling spray, perineal massage oil, soothing compress and breastfeeding oil alongside two luxurious organic cotton flannels make for a lovely gift for pre and post birth.
Having a new baby can feel a little daunting, especially if it is your first time. There are so many milestones and watching your child develop is so important. Little ones can shake, rattle and roll with the *My First Baby Band from Halilit!
This lovely set contains a maraca, texture rattle, cage bell, tube shaker and egg shaker too. These instruments help to help little ones explore their different senses, and strengthen their motor skills too.
A stacker is a great toy for little ones. The Hunny Bunny Stacker, from Taf Toys, is bright and colourful. The stacker rings have little patterns, bright colours and handles too making these easy for little ones to play with.
There are little swirling beads within one of the rings and this toy is fantastic for gross motor skills as well as cognitive development.
Having a new baby is such a joyous time. The Snuggle Pod from Nuby UK is perfect for supervised naps and great for tummy time too.
The Snuggle Pod is a breathable sleepy nest that is portable, so ideal for busy parents to move around home while their baby has a nap. Working parents can complete a few jobs, while baby has a nap alongside them.
The outside cover is easy to remove, to wash, and the 100% super soft cotton outer and polyester filling make for an extremely comfortable place for your little one to sleep.
Textured Pop Blocks are a series of ten interlinking and tactile cubes that are suitable for use from birth. Soft form, with 3D textures, these blocks are great for little ones to touch, and play with.
The protruding shapes ensure that these blocks interlock with ease and offer lots of fun play opportunities. These blocks are ideal to help little ones begin to recognise shapes, counting, animals and colours too.
If you’re purchasing gifts for several small babies, or just wanting something super fun to open for your new baby this Christmas the Santa Surprise box from Nuby is so fun! Please note contents vary per box!
For £25 you will receive £50 of items from the current range. The value of the items in the box I received was almost £55! You can choose from 0-12 month boxes or 12m+ boxes.
I absolutely love these ideas, as it is a great way to enjoy a mystery box to unpack with your little one and all of the items we received were appropriate for the 0-12 month age range we chose.
Some were suitable from birth, and some from 6 months which is great as if you have a newborn you’ll have toys for them to grow into and if you have a child nearer to the upper age range then they’ll be able to enjoy all the toys right away.
When our first baby was born in 2016 Muslins were a real must have item for us. We were actually surprised by just how much we used them! Muslins are ideal for a swaddle, to provide a cover when breastfeeding if you want privacy, or to drape over your shoulder when winding your little one.
