Glowing mothers-to-be are everywhere right now, or is it just us? Kate Middleton is, of course, about to give birth to the future king or queen of England, and it seems she has set a trend for 2013 babies. Stuck on what gift to get someone you know with their looming baby shower? We’ve got a selection of items they’ll surely love…
Let’s start with all things royal baby. Ladybird are offering fantastic products like the Ladybird Baby Girls Royal Sleepsuits (3 Pack) for little girls or the Ladybird Baby Boys Royal Sleepsuit Pyjamas (3 Pack) for bouncing baby boys – both come with three funky designs that say ‘Born in 2013’, ‘Very Important Person’ and ‘Future Queen’ or ‘Future King’. Alternatively, you could opt for our Classic Pooh – A Little Royal Baby 2013 Mug, which is too cute for words.
We’ve also got wonderful items from two brands worth shouting about: Chicco, and Mamas and Papas. The former have adorable items that would work well as gifts. How about providing the little one with a cuddly companion like the Chicco Sweatheart Sheep? Gently press the heart on its tummy to activate the Brahms’ lullaby and soft light effects that help relax and reassure baby to sleep. Something else that works in this way is the Chicco Goodnight Stars Projector. Available in pink or blue, this device plays melodies of Bach and Rossini, the sounds of nature or New Age music as they drift off to sleep in the gentle glow of a warm, sparkling light. You can even detach the cute Goodnight Stars character from the side and it becomes a soft toy!
Nothing quite beats sentimental gifts, so you’d have no worries ordering our Mamas & Papas Made With Love Record Box. This keepsake is home to an imprint kit tin, tooth and curl boxes, and a double-sided concertina record book and height chart. For something rather luxurious, opt for the Mamas & Papas Once Upon A Time Silver Rattle; a must-have for any baby, and something that can be treasured for a lifetime.
