What is the best time to get a baby footprint or handprint made?
The first few months is the best time for a first foot or handprint. New parents are always surprised at just how fast babies grow – and before you know it, you’ve missed the chance to get a footprint from those teeny tiny feet and hands.
The other benefit of this age is that babies will generally sleep and aren’t as active as wriggling toddlers who want to squeeze, grab and explore everything in sight.
What are the best gifts for newborn babies?
The ‘best’ gift can be a bit subjective, and it goes without saying that you can never have too many wraps, bibs, nappies or changes of clothes – making them pretty high on the list of good gifts to buy.
If this is the first baby in the family, look for gifts in neutral colours, such as our delightful range of soft cotton and muslin wraps, play mats or quilts that can be reused for siblings of different genders. Or why not be the one to give them their first blankie or soft toy that will be loved and appreciated for years to come?
Practical gifts or keepsakes – what makes the best newborn baby and shower gift?
Tough choice! New mums will often splurge on practical items for themselves, which makes giving keepsake gifts such as a photography session, handprints or baby books for a newborn a great newborn baby gift idea.
On the other hand, gifts that include a range of practical items like nappies, change mats, cotton wraps and teethers will be loved and appreciated every time they’re used throughout the day.
If you’re stuck for ideas, why not create your own newborn baby hamper and include a mix of practical and sentimental, with our easy-to-coordinate colour schemes in bright, neutrals and dreamy pastel shades.
