You can of course go down the cutesy route. There’s no shortage of sweet cuddly toys on the market (this Jellycat whale is a nice change from standard teddy), and is there anything in the world cuter than a tiny pair of baby booties?
Well, when you see this adorable personalised fleece with tiny ears, you might beg to differ.
Or you can go full-on practical, which is always a good idea if you know other friends or family members have the cute stuff sorted already. While the parents-to-be have probably got things like the high chair, cot and pram sorted (you hope so, at least), they may not have not yet thought about a changing bag, a bath support or even a breast pump (this one from Evie is the world’s first silent wearable breast pump).
Another totally failsafe open is a gift hamper, and the Babyblooms Bertie Bear’s New Baby Gift Basket – including baby socks, baby hat, mittens, muslins, baby bib, pyjamas and a teddy in a pretty white basket – ticks all the boxes. Or if you want something a little more affordable, look no further than this personalised gift box from Not On The High Street.
