So you’re looking for ideas for gifts for a newborn baby There is so much out there and so much choice, which is good but also not so good if, like me, you don’t have the time or interest in scrolling through pages and pages. In this article, we look at some cool gifts that we think are interesting and at the very least will give you some ideas on where you might jump off next to. We’ve been to this particular well a few times with our own children, children in our own family and of course friends, where are all these babies coming from! Hope you enjoy the suggestions. I’ve included links and insta follows for you to see more information. 


Baby hand / foot casts

Popular as gifts for a newborn baby, we had this done with our first child and it still sits proudly here in our home as a cherished gift. It’s basically taking a cast of your child’s foot/hand and this permanent print is a unique keepsake (they grow up so fast you’ll hear everyone saying!!) I can’t remember who we ordered from but https://wrightsonandplatt.com/portfolios/your-baby/ (@wrightsonandplatt) is a provider that I found that does this. If you feel like giving this a go yourself completely DIY, check out https://www.sheknows.com/parenting/articles/805968/how-to-make-a-plaster-casting-of-your-babys-footprint/ (@sheknows) would be a cool project!! 


Breast milk jewellery

This is another one that we bought and still cherish! It is a piece of jewellery created around your breast milk held safely in a vial. I’m probably not explaining it very well but check out https://www.breastmilkjewelry.com/ (@breastmilkjewelry) for what this is and how cool and unique it is as a gift!!


Tinkle Crinkle

The guys at https://gund.com/ (@gottagettagund) do really cool gifts and are mainly cuddly toys. We loved the ‘tinkle crinkle caterpillar’ as it brings in elements of discovery learning and sensory development which is a big tick in our box. We are big fans of these types of gifts and love to give them!


A gift box - a really nice gift box!

We’re all used to gift boxes and as a concept they are not big. Being in existence for so long, they have had time to settle and the really good ones now rise to the top. As baby gift ideas, we loved https://www.shophoneybug.com/ (@shophoneybug) as a really cool gift gift box. There is so much convenience to just having a box sent to someone with the ideal gift in there already, clothes, toys etc. https://www.my1styears.com/ (@my1styears) is another supplier in this space and they do some really cute boxes!
