Choosing a newborn gift? Parents-to-be can be inundated with presents ahead of their new arrival, and too often they receive a mountain of clothing which is quickly outgrown. But there are plenty of options to buy something super stylish which will be loved, and used again and again. Here are six of our very best:
Baby play mats don't get much cuter than these animal face mats by Mister Fly Kids. The appliqué faces are adorable and the mats themselves are super padded and soft. Available in four different monochrome designs - bunny, panda, raccoon and lion - they will blend perfectly into a modern living room.
If monochrome isn't your style then these washable cotton velvet playmats by Kip & Co come in gorgeous animal print, as well as a watermelon and pink and white swan print.
For something original, an art print for the nursery is a great gift idea which will be appreciated for years to come. This sweet collection by Pete Cromer are perfect for stylish little rooms, and are a gorgeous keepsake.
If you want to give something that is both gorgeous and truly practical, you can't go too far wrong with bibs. And these Mister Fly animal bibs - with their cute ears and faces - are just adorable. They are made from a super-soft cotton and come in a lovely unisex grey colour.
3. Baby blanket
The exquisitely designed range of Kate & Kate baby blankets are a must for baby’s first few years. These 100% cotton blankets are gorgeously soft and come in a range of classic colours and stylish designs, perfect for the nursery or sofa.
New parents can never have too many muslins, and some of the nicest on the market are these gorgeous bamboo muslins by Kip & Co, with colourful unisex patterns which mums and babies will love. They are perfect for swaddling as well, as they are super breathable - meaning that they are cool in summer and warm in winter.
These lightweight, sustainable wood mobiles are perfect for gender-neutral nurseries, and are a sweet, handmade option that will last for years as they are just as appropriate for a child as for a new baby. Available in Australian and African animals, dinosaurs and sea creature designs.
