Buying a present for parents that have just welcomed a new bundle into their lives can be quite a daunting task. This is especially so if you haven’t had children yourselves or you’re looking for something a little bit special.
But don’t worry I’m hoping my helpful little guide will give you some ideas of unique, thoughtful gifts which will suit all kinds of different parents!
The London Gift
For the London Parents why not book their tiny tot into the Mandara Spa.
Yep you read that right, the Mandara Spa at Park Plaza Westminster Bridge have a specialist treatment course for babies. Named ‘Loving Touch Baby Massage’ you can book their precious darling in for a 5 course treatment for £85.00, where they will also be taught how to continue the treatment at home using some complimentary organic baby products from Tiddley Pom.
Massage has a number of health benefits for babies. It can help reduce colic symptoms, relieve constipation and aide trapped wind- all newborn crying matters. Facial massage helps with teething and also with clearing blocked sinuses. And overall massaging has shown to have a really positive effect on a babies regulatory, digestive and respiratory systems.
The Family Gift
When a new baby comes into the world it can be nice to treat the whole family and not just the baby (especially so if there are older siblings). Baby Blooms allow you to pick and choose what you want to put into a beautiful box that is delivered to the door of the new parents. Seriously you won’t see packaging like this anywhere else!
But if you think the packaging is impressive wait until the new parents unearth your chosen goodies!
A bouquet of clothes for the new arrival will be much appreciated, especially as a new Mum can never have enough of the basic essentials.
And if you’re up for treating the lady who pushed said child out, she will be grateful for the wonderful collection of organic face and body goodies.
But if there is an older sibling in the family you can also pop in a personalised Bertie Bear or a personalised t-shirt saying ‘Big Brother‘ (or ‘Big sister’), and just to reinforce that new older Brother/Sister title, why not also pop in the relevant book!
Baby Blooms literally has everything to make sure every member of the family is suitably spoilt, including Dad. I’ve only scratched the surface with the few items I have mentioned, so this is definitely a company you’ll want to spend your time carefully looking though for the perfect gift.
The Personal Gift
As a child I absolutely loved Enid Blyton and wanted to incorporate her stories and characters into the nursery somehow. So I commissioned Little Tinker Gifts to custom make a personalised framed name picture.
The Faraway Tree by Enid Blyton, symbolised childhood dreams and fantasies for me, and therefore became my literary reference for the picture. The picture included all of my Son’s birth stats and it surpassed expectations, especially as I couldn’t remember all the characters when I commissioned the piece. The artist had to go away and research everything himself to make sure the final product matched up to the characters in the book.
For a truly beautiful gift I would highly recommend the services of Little Tinker Gifts. Just wait until after the birth and the couple are certain over their child’s name before ordering!
The designs can be anything not just literary, so if you know the couple have a favoured character or love certain animals you can feel free that you can request pretty much anything!
