Christmas Gift Guide For Babies {2018}

As you probably know by now, I'm expecting baby number 3 in just over a month! So I thought it'd be a nice idea to put together a sweet little gift guide for babies. Featuring a range of products from comforters, to toys and blankets. It can be hard to know what to buy for little monkeys, as there's nothing they want or need at such a young age! So that's why I decided to include a lovely range of items, some suitable for newborn and some more suitable for older babies. I'd love to hear what you think!

Water Babies Happy Nappy Wetsuit

This Happy Nappy Wetsuit from Water Babies is the perfect item for little ones just starting to swim. It's a gorgeous, vibrant coloured wetsuit with a built in happy nappy to prevent leaks in the pool. I've always put my little ones in wetsuits when they are babies, I mean they are only tiny after all, it's important to look after their skin and keep them warm too! This fantastic wetsuit is really great quality, with a super cute design and UPF 50+ meaning it will protect their little bodies from the sun too!
Splash Mirror
This fantastic, fun little Splash Mirror is perfect for bath time or swimming. Little ones will love playing with it, looking at their own reflections and helping to build their confidence in the water. It's made of high quality, strong foam making it bite proof too! I really love the style of this mirror and it's a great size for little ones to grab!

ergoPouch Joey Comforter
The ergoPouch Joey Trackable Comforter is an adorable pastel coloured joey toy. With sweet black ears and face, and chewable knotted arms and legs it's perfect for young babies. 

The really unique aspect of this toy is that it's trackable using an app, meaning it'll never get lost! No more spending hours crazily searching for that beloved toy! (I should know, my little boys favourite toy is this tiny little figure who gets lost on a regular basis!) 

The comforter from ergoPouch is really sweet, with a beautiful design and being made of natural bamboo and cotton, it's wonderfully soft to cuddle and friendly to little baby skin. 
I really love the concept of this cute little fellow, and I cannot wait to introduce him to my little one.




ergoPouch Cocoon
Another gorgeous product from ergoPouch to include now, the ergoCocoon Swaddle. Something I've always heard great things about, but always been unsuccessful with, is swaddling. I just couldn't get my head around it, so that's where the Cocoon Swaddle comes in! The no origami design is easy to use, with a simple zip to keep baby all wrapped and snuggly. 

The cloud design is absolutely adorable, and perfect for boys or girls! Made of organic cotton means it's really gentle on babies skin and different TOG ratings are available for the ever changing weather. It's antibacterial and with a two way zipper for nappy change time, it really is the ideal product for baby bedtime! Plus, when baby gets a bit bigger, you can unpop the arms holes so baby can stretch out a bit. I really, really love the design of this swaddle and will be upgrading to bigger sizes as baby grows!


Handmade Crochet Baby Shoes
I absolutely love handmade products, I feel they are much more special when you know they've been handcrafted. Plus crocheted and knitted baby items are always so adorable! These Handmade Crochet Baby Shoes from Jasmin's Handarbeiten are absolutely gorgeous. The quality of them is excellent, and you can really tell how much detail and care has been put into making them. I love them!

Not Your Standard Baby Hamper
The Baby Hamper Company have a huge selection of gorgeous baby hampers and gifts for little ones. From unisex, to twin or even personalised hampers, there's a delightful little gift perfect for every baby. The Not Your Standard Baby Box is a wonderful selection of bright coloured items, far away from the typical baby colours. The box contains a gorgeous Red & White Cotton Romper Suit in age 0-3 months. It's really excellent quality and would look adorable on any boy or girl (It reminds me of the baby on Labyrinth!). A lovely little toy, Lamaze Giggle Bunny Ball. With soft textures, bright colours and a cute, lightweight design makes it perfect for young babies. Also included in the box is a pure cotton white hat and a wonderful bandana bib. Each product is beautiful, high quality and expertly selected. 

What I really love about this baby hamper, aside from the absolutely beautiful products inside, is how wonderful the gifts are wrapped. Each box is handwrapped in tissue paper, with a lovely big red bow on top. It makes each box look that bit more special and every hamper would make an adorable gift for your little ones this Christmas.

HAPE Portable Baby Gym
I really love this gorgeous Portable Baby Gym from Hape. Wooden toys really are beautiful arent they? A great way to keep baby entertained on this soft play mat, with lovely little hanging toys to look at and play with. The play mat has a beautiful, minimalistic design and the toys arent too noisy, making the perfect little mat for babies from newborn.

The really amazing aspect of this play gym is, yes, it's portable! You can easily fold it into a super sweet tote bag, meaning it can be transported anywhere. Whether you are visiting relatives over Christmas or meeting up with friends, baby will be happy and entertained!


Whisbird
Whisbird is a gorgeous, unique cuddly toy with a calming pink noise device, that safely soothes babies. 

I used to rely on white noise when my eldest two were little, it's the only way I could get them to sleep at night, and I honestly had never heard of pink noise until now. Pink noise is a calmingly quiet sound that resembles a hum they recognise from their mother's womb. The Whisbird, from the Whisbear collection, is a beautiful sensory toy, with vibrant colours and rustling wings, plus a small hanging loop meaning it can be attached to pushchairs or carseats. 

The Whisbear is really excellent quality, and the material is super soft, plus the design itself is adorable! You can fully remove the pink noise device to wash the bird in your machine so you know it'll be kept nice and clean for baby too. Pink noise is supposed to help little ones get to sleep, and stay asleep but it also has calming benefits when it comes to teething or colic too. 
Mini Club Dress & Legging Set

I absolutely love children's clothing from Boots Mini Club, particularly baby clothes. They are always just so beautiful and amazing quality. This dress and leggings set is no exception. The long sleeved dress has the most beautiful floral design, but combined with the sweet soft pink gilet and tights it makes a really gorgeous outfit for little ones. Each item is really high quality, and nice thick material to keep baby cosy. This particular outfit is from the new Fearne by Fearne Cotton range at Boots Mini Club, I really recommend having a browse, every item in the range is gorgeous and affordable!
Restful Rabbit Baby Blanket
This absolutely beautiful fleece baby blanket is from Reroom, the blanket was created for them by a talented designer. The Restful Rabbit blanket is amazing quality, super soft and cuddly for babies to snuggle under. Hand stitched with thick polar fleece, perfect for this chilly winter weather, and providing an extra layer of comfort for your little one. 
One side of the blanket has the super sweet rabbit print, while on the reverse side is a wonderful woodland/hedgehog themed print.

Paper Bird Mobile

If you are looking for a sweet mobile for a new baby, look no further than this beautiful little Paper Bird Mobile. It's such a delicate but adorable little mobile, nothing too distracting or bright to prevent babies from falling asleep, but it provides a loving warm glow for baby's room. 

The mobile is lovingly handcrafted from paper, and it's really amazing quality for such a sweet little design. Each mobile is battery operated with three cute hanging birds. This unique light mobile would look adorable in any child's bedroom.

High Contrast Art Cards

For a really unique gift idea for babies, why not try these beautiful High Contrast Art Cards? The lovely cards are designed to be used from birth, to help promote brain growth and vision development. The cards, from Bebedou are durable and safe, but still require adult supervision as they are not toys. The sweet art cards are high quality, and can be used when you are both having a cuddle, during tummy time or you could even create a mobile for baby using the circular cards. {Amazon Link}
