Last weekend myself and some close girlfriends got together for a pre-baby get together with lots of cake and they were sweet enough to get me some lovely things for myself and the baby. As the chatter went around the table there was lots of mention about how hard it is this time around to buy gifts because we all have so much already from our first baby’s.
It got me thinking, what do you get for an expectant mother, of baby number 2, or 3! So many of the essentials are already owned, and even nice outfits can be handed down. So I thought I’d put together a list of ideas for anyone looking for baby shower gifts, or presents for baby number 2 which are more luxurious than they are essential!
Nothing says luxury like designer labels for children! House Of Fraser stock so many amazing goodies under one roof and more affordably than you may think! I came across these cute boy’s bibs whilst browsing through their vast children’s section, the girls ones are super sweet too!
These 100% cotton muslin sleeping bags are seriously soft and help aid a comfortable, fuss free nights sleep. We are still using a sleeping bag with Henry 2 years on as he spins around in circles throughout the night, and wish I had splashed out on these in the first place as the quality is so high and the trademark Aden & Anais prints are just lovely!
3. Gabe & Grace custom liners – From £43
Merino wool keeps your baby cool in summer and warm in winter and is pure luxury with its deep, soft fleece pile as well as being super hygienic and kind to the newest of skin. These stunning car seat or pram liners are suitable for a wide range of prams and car seats and come in a variety of sumptuous colours.
4. Organic Babies skin care for children – From £7.95
For when only the kindest of products will do for new baby skin, these totally organic skin care sets make a really thoughtful gift as they are so gentle to baby’s skin and they are available in a variety of collections.
Who says only the baby should be showered with gifts?! Clarins do a perfect range of skin care designed for new mums and mums to be and this pure indulgent set includes some of their top pregnancy products. The amazing thing is with this set is that you’re paying for the super effective Stretch Mark Minimiser product and getting the rest of it free!!
I’d love to hear what special baby shower gifts you were given!
