Buying a gift for babies can be difficult, especially if they’re tiny. All they really need after all is cuddles and milk, and the last thing new parents want is any more clutter.
Still it is nice to buy something, especially something that will be truly appreciated. If you head over to Natural Connection you will lots of inspiration for gifts that are made to last.
Here are a few pointers to guide your search:
The Grimms Rainbow Collection
The Grimms Rainbow itself is a classic toy, but there is a whole range of colourful, ethically-made wooden forms that grow with the child, the play they inspire evolving with their imagination.
The caves and tents are especially cute – perfect for decorating the nursery as well as a gateway into imaginary worlds.
These wooden mobiles are handmade to an exceptional quality, with the real potential to become an heirloom piece as baby grows bigger.
There are so many gorgeous designs to choose from that it is hard to pick just one, but this globe mobile stands out for me. Not only is it just beautiful but it embodies a message of togetherness and perspective that our world sorely needs right now.
Sakura Bloom Ring Slings
Perhaps the best gift for any baby (and their parents) is a comfortable and luxurious sling. The Connecta is suitable from newborn, but many people like to have other options too – especially in the early days.
The Sakura Bloom range includes a range of beautiful fabrics like this stunning Essential Silk, reversible and available in several gorgeous colours. Best of all, whilst these ring slings are perfectly supportive for newborns they are strong enough to support a baby into toddler years – and beyond.
When my son was tiny, we all fell in love with his star projection light – it helped soothe him to sleep, and provided a magical backdrop for those late night feeds. Now he is almost four it is still a firm favourite: I like to think it gives his dreams a whole new dimension.
This star projector comes with music too, so you can add to the ambiance with gentle lullabies.
A special blanket
Another gift that’s good for parents and babies alike, a wonderfully soft blanket is perfect for those winter snuggles.
There are several to choose from at the Natural Connection shop, and these Goodnight Bear blankets from David Fussenegger are still on offer, so you might grab a bargain if you’re quick!
