When a friend or loved one is expecting a baby, everyone is keen to choose the perfect gift. This special time should be commemorated with gifts that are both practical and beautiful.
Practical yet sustainable gifts
New parents are always happy with handy gifts that can make those early days a little easier. Gifts that are highly practical can even be made from beautiful and sustainable materials. Items made from natural materials such as wool or wood are especially popular with new parents keen to keep things natural and are thought to be better for the baby From wooden baby toys to woollen blankets, such gifts will be cherished by parents and babies alike.
Custom-made gifts such as trinkets and crockery are perfect for new babies. But if you’re looking for something truly unique, consider one of the crochet blanket kits available at sites such as https://www.woolcouturecompany. Using this kit you can either create the perfect homemade blanket yourself, or you can gift it as it comes for a crafty mum or dad-to-be.
A framed picture for the nursery is another fantastic and popular gift idea. Order a custom-made print or design inspired by the baby’s name, or a simple picture relating to a classic children’s story. In fact, any framed picture will brighten up the sleeping space and will be cherished for many years.
As every parent knows, you can never have too many baby clothes. This is a popular choice, however, so try to avoid getting the same as everybody else. Consider choosing bigger clothes, such as 6-9 or 9-12 month sizes. At this point, parents will find they are getting through more items each day (especially when the feeding and crawling starts) and will be grateful to have some clothes put away ready. Opt for natural materials such as cotton, and avoid anything that isn’t designed for everyday use. Durable, bright, quality children’s clothes will always be welcomed by new parents.
Whatever you buy, remember to keep it natural where possible. And opt for gifts that are practical but also beautiful.
