What is the best newborn baby gift?

What is the best newborn baby gift?

Well, apart from an extra set of hands and an unbroken 8 hours sleep the nest best thing is something that is beautiful and practical. Silver rattles? sounds lovely but in reality it is not going to be used and it is the gifts that are most used that become the most treasured, by both baby and parents. 

Striking the balance between essential, beautiful, quality and fun isn't easy and so I have rounded up the best selection of gifts from our site which I think make the best newborn baby gift.


1) The Bath Swan

This beautifully boxed gift ticks all the boxes; by far the most elegant and beautiful toy for a newborn. It is handmade in Denmark and is made from natural rubber and is both eco friendly and sustainable. It makes a great toy but is designed for the bath but looks just nestled on a nursery shelf to.

2) Miffy x Little Dutch Gift Set in Stripes or Flowers

Meet the three most adorable Miffy toys from Little Dutch, all wrapped in a beautiful gift box to make the perfect gift for a newborn or baby shower. Pair Miffy with Little Dutch and you get the best of both worlds: the cutest soft bunny available, in the most beautiful design of Vintage Sunny Stripes. We think these sets make the perfect newborn baby gift for 2023.

3) Striped Bunny Teddy

One of my favourite recommendations for newborn baby gifts it this super soft rabbit with his striped pyjamas and ruffle collar, the Main Sauvage striped bunny is the perfect companion for a baby. Made from 100% baby alpaca wool it is unbelievably soft and cuddle-friendly. 

Handknitted in a fair-trade workshop in Bolivia, it’s making supports an intelligent production, respectful of Earth and humans’ rights. Like all our knitted toys, this teddy bear is made in pure baby alpaca wool, which is antibacterial and perfectly adapted for sensitive skin.

4) Daisy Rattle

We love multi textured, neutral wooden rattle from Scandinavian brand Bezisa. Each one is lovingly made by by hand and features natural wooden beads of two different textures, a wooden teething ring as well as a delicate felt daisy meaning your baby will be kept busy by the textures & shapes of this beautiful rattle and teether.

What is the most treasured gift your newborn was gifted? we would love to know.
