Whether you are a parent to be, or a grandma or relative looking for the perfect gift it can be hard to know what to give that will be a beautiful keepsake or a practical well-used gift. I asked some of our clients which were the best 3 baby gifts they received on or before their babies arrival and these are the just three of the gifts they raved about.
Claire mummy of 2 boys I've had the pleasure of photographing, said
"The Boy Who Lost His Name Book. was our favourite gift, it's a personalised gift so it makes a lovely keepsake. I've give one to all our family and friends since receiving"
You can see those here and even preview the book as you create it. You don't have a lot to do, all you put in is the child's name and their super duper software creates the book and previews it for you, how cool is that! You can order online from Wonderbly.com
Debra, recommended the Tommee Tippee travel bottle warmer flask. Again it's a simple thing. But it's perfectly sized and equips you with the hot water and container you need to perfectly fit babies bottle of either expressed milk or formula when out and about. I remember we had one of these too and I'd second that and it's quite inexpensive for the amount of use we got from it.
Debra said "I got a Tommee tippee flask. Perfect for when your out and about with the little one for a good few hours. Fits perfectly in my changing bag. And the water obviously stays hot very a very long time"
Clare said The best gift she received was a buggy organiser.
"My friend gave me a buggy organiser which I can put my keys, purse, wipes, tissues etc save me finding it in the bag. I give all my friends one now."
The one Clare has is just here but there are many on the market when you go looking such a small but practical thing can help such alot when you have so much to do and so much to keep eyes on with a newborn while out traveling or shopping.
