March 1, 2020Gift Guides, Gift Inspiration

Knowing what to buy a second baby is never as easy as the first, but don’t worry the gifting experts at My 1st Years are here to help you pick the best gifts for baby number two. 


When a friend or family member announces they are pregnant it’s always an exciting occasion, and of course you want to treat them to the best gift. However, buying thoughtful yet useful gifts for a second baby is always far more difficult than the first one. It’s likely Mum and Dad got all the big essentials the first time around and already have a selection of hand-me-down clothes they can’t wait to pull out again, however no one wants to buy a boring or useless gift. Gifts for a second baby require a little extra thought, time and something a little more unique, just like the baby. That is why we think a beautifully personalised baby gift is the best present for the newest arrival and luckily for you, here at My 1st Years we are experts in personalising the most precious and thoughtful baby gifts. To make it even better we never charge you for our personalisation and have a FREE gift box meaning you don’t even have to wrap the gift, perfect for when you’re short of time. 

Discover our five best gifts for a second baby, we promise little ones and their parents will love you for them!
