5 𝓷𝓮𝔀 𝓫𝓪𝓫𝔂 𝓰𝓲𝓯𝓽 𝓲𝓭𝓮𝓪𝓼 ❤️🧡💛💚💙💜
Did you know, the 2nd January is the most popular day for people to fall pregnant! Lots of people start trying for a baby in December/January and couple that with lockdown 3? 4? and some of the raunchier new series on Netflix meaning some lucky people might be in the mood; it’s likely those lovely baby announcement will be doing the rounds on insta and Facebook soon (fingers crossed, love and hope for those of you who might be trying, it can be so tough 🍍) 🤰🏼👶🏽🤱
Therefore, I thought I would share my top 5 frog and bear new baby gifts 🎁 I promise they will be much more loved than anything you can buy from Asda or Morrison’s quickly before you visit someone and I deliver pretty fast... plus I’m giving you plenty of warning that babies might be on the way so, you’ve got no excuse 😉
Coming in at number 5 it’s our lovely baby sensory bag 5️⃣
A classic example of things parents will possibly not thank you for at the time (thinking why have you bought me a space blanket 🧐?) but, they will definitely thank you later on when that crinkly foil, flashing ball & sensory ribbon gives them just enough time to drink a hot cup of tea ☕️! It also means they’re ready to join in all the baby zoom classes 🎉🎉🎉
A slightly off piste suggestion for number 4 with a FAB pocket nappy 4️⃣
It might just be the gift that takes them down the cloth nappy rabbit hole and if you’re a cloth bum parent yourself, it gives you a nice topic of conversation other than sore bits, boobs or tums 💜❤️🧡 Our FAB nappies are handmade in Uganda 🇺🇬so you’ll be helping to empower women through job creation when you buy them and they also come in the most ridiculously cute prints (if I do say so myself!)
Jumping in at number 3 is our under the Nile comforters 3️⃣
Made of 100% cotton from the scraps of baby rompers, they’re another eco and eczema friendly option, perfect for babies to snuggle and for mum to keep in her bra a few weeks before birth so baby has something that smells just like home straight away 💞
Dippy our gorgeous diplodocus comes in at number 2 2️⃣
I don’t need to write anything about Dippy really do I? He’s ridiculously cute, has the sweetest little face and you just know it’ll be a toy that the little one loves for a very long time! 🦕 available in a small rattle, medium and large and even a rubber version perfect the chewing and in the bath.
Finally, at number 1 we have one of my all time most important gifts for parents... 1️⃣
A listening ear, someone who offers practical time like doing washing, hoovering or washing up, brings a hot meal, is there for the long haul not just the initial cute snuggles and someone who respects boundaries and the parents decisions 🧡 It’s a really tough time at the minute for new parents so buy all the lovely gifts you can, but those phone calls, door stop hot food deliveries and adult conversations are definitely the number one thing you can give ❤️❤️❤️
Thank you for reading my first blog 🎉 If you got this far please leave me a little comment and share if you know anyone this might be useful for! I’ll also take this opportunity to say I will always be willing to put a bespoke gift package together for you. If you drop me a message with a budget and any ideas you might have I love putting gifts together 💞
