If you're lucky enough to have a new baby to buy for this Christmas, we’re here to help! Whether it’s your babies first Christmas, a niece, nephew or grandchild, or your best friend’s baby, we have picked out some of our favourite baby gifts to leave under the tree for the tiniest Christmas guests this year.
Here at Kabode we love beautiful design and sustainability, so we’ve kept both of those things in mind when putting this list together. We hope it gives you some inspiration!
Kabode Wildlife Quilt
Designed to be the centrepiece of any nursery, our colourful quilts will be a gift that lasts as the child grows up and continues to use it. Perfectly sized to use in a cot or cot bed, it also makes a lovely playmat or travel mat. Sustainably made of 100% organic cotton.
Kidly Sensory Stacking Cups
We love the coastal colour palette of these cute stacking cups. A modern take on a classic early learning toy, these cups are made of tactile food-grade silicone in colours bright enough to engage a baby but muted to suit a stylish nursery. Each cup has different shapes and holes on the bottom, so they can be used to stamp into sand, or to pour bathwater through. They stack one on top of the other or turn them upside down and they neatly pack away inside each other.
Tree by Kerri Lee Menagerie Music Box
Simple and sweet these wooden music boxes are designed and artisan made to become lifelong keepsakes. A turn of the bear’s tail starts it playing “You Are My Sunshine” to softly soothe a baby to sleep.
Wee Gallery Cuddle Bunny
Everybody needs a little comfort now and then. This sleepy bunny is made from 100% GOTS certified cotton with a Oeko-Tex polyester filling. His taggy paws will be great for baby hands to play with and chew on, and his monochrome design will make him engaging to even tiny babies, who can’t interpret the full spectrum of colours yet but who can see high contrast black and white.
Janod Sweet Cocoon Cart with ABC Blocks
Give early walkers a racing start with this wooden cart. Cleverly designed not to tip, it helps them find their balance as they take their first steps and begin their own adventure around the living room. The cart is filled with alphabet building blocks for them to stack and knock down, and also has an abacus in the handle - it’s a three in one gift that will be a firm favourite from baby to toddler.
Sophie La Giraffe
Well known and loved by many babies, Sophie is the star of all teethers for a reason! Made of 100% natural rubber the surface is tactile and warm, and just right for gnawing with sore gums, Her unique shape provides lots of places for little hands to grab onto and little mouths to chew on, and she is easily cleaned. Suitable as a toy from newborn, she will really be an essential when baby starts teething and has to satiate the urge to chew on anything and everything.
Little Dutch Wooden Baby Gym
The timeless style of this wooden baby gym will sit beautifully in any calm nursery or living room. Made from plywood and finished with water-based paint it is safe and fun for your baby. Three soft toys hang from the bar, giving babies something to reach for and grab onto, stretching out their muscles and improving their hand-eye coordination.
Toddlekind Luxe Nappy Free Mat
Specially designed for nappy free playtime and tummy time this beautiful circular mat has outer layers made from 100% GOTS certified organic cotton, and a waterproof inner layer to protect from any accidents. It enables nappy free time without the worry of spills, as it can just be put in the washing machine whenever needed. Soft and comfy it’s a lovely spot for reading or baby massage before bed.
Organic Babies Silent Night Gift Set
Treat newborn skin with care by using only organic skincare for bathtime, bedtime and nappy changes. We like the Organic Babies range by Green People, it’s tried and tested and well loved by many families. This lovely gift set uses natural lavender essential oil to help relax and soothe babies and promote quality sleep while being gentle and kind to skin.
Amawrap Baby Sling Wrap
The very best gift you can give a baby is time and attention. A soft sling enables that, as baby can be close to their parent wherever they go. There are lots of proven benefits to babywearing, and this natural cotton wrap by Amawrap will support parents to comfortably wear their baby from the early days right through to when they find their independence as toddlers. It’s often said that slings come with a sprinkling of sleepy dust as babies tend to nod off when snuggled in there close to their parents chest, listening to their heartbeat and moving with them, so this gift will help baby to get quality daytime naps.
Pigeon Organic Snuggle Suit
Keep little ones warm with this snuggle suit made from 100% GOTS certified organic cotton and a cosy sherpa fleece lining. It’s printed with a jolly festive repeated pattern of winter animals all wrapped up for playing in the snow. The foldover cuffs on both the arms and legs will keep little fingers and toes toasty, while the poppered front allows for easy changes.
