Choosing a new baby gift online? We're Here to Help

Buying a baby gift online opens up a lot more choice, and makes it easy for the gift to be sent directly to the new parents, but how do you make sure that you buy the right baby gift online?

There are many reasons to buy a baby gift online. Choice is definitely one of them. No one shop however good could possibly stock the sheer quantity of baby gifts that you can now find online. In addition many online gift shops will also add a gift message and send the gift directly to the new parents which is a definite plus, especially now!
But if you don’t get to see the baby gift before its delivered how do you choose the right one?

On average people in the UK spend just over £17 on new baby gifts or baby shower gifts. Unsurprisingly Londoners spend the most with an average spend per gift of just under £29. A baby born in the UK receives approx. £179 of baby gifts to welcome it in to this world. Our Top Tips to buying a baby gift they’ll love

  1. Go Neutral
    If you don’t know the parents that well, or if you haven’t seen them much during pregnancy it’s always best to go neutral. Whether the parents prefer pinks/blues or gender neutral colours you will never cause offence by giving a white, cream or grey baby gift. There are a significant percentage of parents who only like to have their babies in white for the first 3 months of their lives which is why so many baby clothes are white.
    If you want to buy a white baby gift our organic baby comforters come in a range of colours including white and grey, and we also have a very popular organic knitted white bunny rattle, and a gorgeous range of organic scandi style toys too.

 

  1. Go with their interests.
    It’s always good if you can give a baby gift which relates back to the parent’s lives. So if they live in London then our London bus or London pigeon rattles would be popular, or if they have a thing about dinosaurs then obviously our dinosaur rattle would be a good choice. We have many vegan baby gifts for parents who follow a vegan or vegetarian lifestyle, and of course we have dog baby rattles for parents who already have a fur baby.

 

  1. Go useful
    Baby clothes are a popular choice for baby gifts but the problem is that babies grow very quickly so your gift could have been outgrown in just a matter of weeks.
    If you are looking for a baby gift which is both useful and long lasting then our natural rubber toys are perfect both as a teether and a bath toy guaranteeing loads of use. Or a wooden rainbow toy looks great as a nursery decoration until they are old enough to start playing with it, and will be a great toy through nursery, pre-school and key stage 1.
