If you’re stuck for creative baby gift ideas, fear not. Here at Woodland Wonder, we have lots of unique baby gifts to inspire you.
Our baby gifts bring that extra touch of magic and creativity to help the bub you have in mind grow into a curious, adventurous little human being. You might even win brownie points from mum and dad for thinking of something truly useful and imaginative that they overlooked!
Here’s our guide to help you buy the perfect newborn baby gift when a loved one is expecting.
Gifts for the New Arrival
For extra kudos from the mum and dad to be, think beyond the usual newborn baby presents to what will be infinitely useful over the next 12 months as the baby grows older. Thinking ahead ensures that the parents won’t be left with an overload of baby clothes and toys suitable for newborns, with nothing to suit a 6-12 month old!
Here are four special newborn baby gifts that are sure to impress both the parents and baby as you help welcome their little one into the world.
Sophie Mealtime Set – Kiwi by Vulli
This gorgeous, dishwasher-safe mealtime set, themed with Sophie the Giraffe, makes mealtimes fun for baby and super simple for mum and dad. The set contains everything you could need in a starter set, including one shallow dish, one bowl, one cup and a fork and spoon set.
If your little one can’t get enough of the adorable Sophie, you can always follow up the gift with a Sophie-themed non-spill cup.
Pirate Pig Organic Rattle
Looking for a mischievous, fun take on a newborn essential that’s also eco-friendly? Rattles come in all shapes and forms, but this fun pirate-themed pig is one of our favourites.
