With a new royal baby on his or her way very soon we have been thinking about all things new baby. When it comes to gifting a new arrival you are really trying to impress the parents, as little one is not yet at the stage where they’ll be playing or remotely interested in what they’re wearing – so you’ll want to ensure you gift a truly special and unique present. It might be worth asking the parents if they’re still needing anything and if they’re covered on the essentials you’ll want to send out a beautiful keepsake gift. Of course, we believe that a personalised present is always the best – it shows affirmation that you adore the parent’s choice in name and isn’t an off the shelf, no effort required gift. So with the new baby next on our gift list we thought we would share our most beautiful gifts fit for a brand new royal baby.
Gifts for a new baby: The Perfect Blanket
Blankets make a great gift for new babies, they’re always useful and not something that is an issue if duplicated as they’re an item that will be used on a daily basis. Personalised blankets are an extra special gift as they’re unique to the baby and a great way for Mum and Dad to show off their new little one’s name. For Prince William and Kate, we would chose one of our luxury cashmere blankets, available in pink, blue and white they’re a dream gift for any newborns. We have a huge selection of blankets ranging from £20 – £150, so whatever your budget you can find a personalised treat, they’ll adore!
Gifts for a new baby: Footwear Fit For Royalty
Little shoes are the most adorable gift to receive as a new parent, well let’s face it baby shoes are the cutest thing full stop. They may not be the most practical accessory for a tiny baby, but they’re one of the things that Mum and Dad will want to keep forever. We know that the royals are huge fans of t-bar shoes so we think our navy canvas shoes or super cute pink scallop detail ones will be a perfect addition to the new Prince or Princesses wardrobe. If this traditional style isn’t your thing, we have a whole range of baby footwear including Summer shoes and stylish sneakers.
Gifts for a new baby: Royal Robes
Here at My 1st years our number one gift for a new baby is of course… robes. Towelling robes are great for after bath time while fleece robes are perfect for chilly evenings. Our dressing gowns all come personalised and look super cute teamed with a set of classic pyjamas. Of course, we had to pick our new limited edition grey robe for the new arrival, with the royals already being a fan of our classic gingham robe (remember when Prince George wore our Blue Gingham Trim Robe?) we thought they might love our new updated version.
Gifts for a new baby: Cute Comforters
Little ones love something to fiddle with, as they become more aware they love using their hands to discover new textures and shapes. Baby’s are always gifted soft toys but a comforter is something they’ll get to use earlier and they’ll find comfort in as they grow older. All of our comforters come with a adorable animal feature or playful loops in different textures, ideal for inquisitive tots. We thought our classic bunny comforter would be perfect for the royals new arrival, in a super soft fleece fabric it’s sure to be a much-loved gift by the Royals.
