Buying a gift for a baby can be tricky, especially if it’s that of a close friend or colleague. As a solution, we’ve hand picked five weird and wonderful gifts for babies and children of all ages and genders to help give you some inspiration this year.
Gap Reindeer Beanie
Admittedly, this is more of a gift for the parents than the baby. The incredibly cute design of this beanie is fun and festive, and the £9.95 price tag makes it a great gift for new parents. It’s also made from 100% cotton, meaning it is super soft and machine washable. Available in Gap stores nationwide or here on the website.
East of India Noah’s Ark
This intricately crafted wooden ark set makes a wonderful keepsake for your little ones first Christmas or birthday. Painted in mellow creams, pinks and blues, the simple and traditional design is timeless. Although it should be played with under supervision, it can become a fun and exciting way of teaching your kids about this Bible story. You can get this online on the Temptation Gifts website, with free UK delivery on orders over £49.99.
Willa & Bobbin Cloud Mobiles
Available on Etsy, these three mobiles caught our eye because of their unique design. Each one is made to order with Liberty of London Tana Lawn Cotton fabric.
With a whole collection of other equally interesting furnishings in their store, you can bring to life your babies bedroom or nursery this Christmas.
This kit contains everything your little monkeys will need to build their very own den. From a camouflage canvas bag to face paint, this set is great for getting the kids out of the house and keeping them out of trouble. It’s also made to last with waterproof and rot resistant qualities, plus the canvas bag can be machine washed. This is available at the Not on the High Street website, along with many other unique and individual gifts for children of all ages.
David Walliams The Bear Who Went Boo!
Finally, we have the best-selling Christmas picture book from David Walliams, ‘The Bear Who Went Boo!’. Although we’d recommend all of David Walliams’ books, this one in particular has a wonderful Christmassy feel to it. With many comparisons being made to Roald Dahl, you can’t go wrong any of these modern children’s classics. Available in Waterstones or on Amazon here.
