Whether you’re shopping for your own little bundle of joy, or you have a little one to buy for this year, we have three lovely brands you may want to consider.
Perfect for a baby shower or the arrival of a tiny tot, is a delightful British made bouquet of clothes from Born Gifted. The hand tied bouquet comes in three colours; pink, blue and white. Each is made up of 5 pairs of baby socks and two vests, wrapped delightfully with paper flowers and silk foliage. This will put a smile on any new mammy’s face!
Slugs and Snails puts a firm smile on our faces with their range of fun and colourful tights for both girls and boys! The brand is Oeko Tex 100 certified and they currently have 6 organic lines in their collection, with a hope to go all organic by next year. We received a pair of Storm tights for Isabella to try out and she loves them. The non-slip soles are perfect for her in the early days of walking and the pattern looks amazing with a denim dress.
The brand itself however was not designed for little girls, but indeed for little boys, when founder Kathleen spotted a gap in the market for keeping her son’s legs warm. Girl’s tights just didn’t make the mark with their patterns stopping around the knee. So, Kathleen created a range of fully patterned tights that enabled her little boy to be flexible and warm. And we’re ever so pleased she did!
Another delightful range of gifts comes from Natures Purest who boast a product range made from 100% organically grown cotton. A couple of our favourites are the Teddy and Ele activity stacking ring that looks delightful in the nursery and becomes a practical toy for your little one to play with as they grow. Perfect for a gift is the organic cotton cable knit blanket. As with all of the Natures Purest range, the neutral colours make this perfect for a little girl or boy to snuggle down for nap time with.
