For our little squidges I've made two lists.
This first one is for expecting friends and family and those with tiny babies.
Practical, items that grow with your baby that are just gorgeous!
Newborn and up
Rosa & Bo
I love these nesting babies with chiming bo bunny inspired by traditional Russian dolls.
The nesters are recognised as being the first nursery toy to be completely safe for children under 3 years old – they are actually tested and credited as safe from birth, but we’d recommend them for 12 months and over. Plus, they are even water-safe - making them suitable for the bath as well as the beach!

This has been a show favourite from the start. We love the recent editions of re-useable straws and the slightly larger snack bags. You'll find a new range for older children and adults too!
Perfect for carrying and storing snacks, baby lead weaning, smoothies and puree food storage.
I've picked this Christmas gift box because it has all you need to wean and beyond in one box! Super value too!

I love these trousers designed by a mum!
They're practical, go with everything, perfect for baby wearing, for comfort and safety with the specially designed built in socks Non-slip grips on the soles. Ideal for hard floors and keeping tiny feet warm!
Available in sizes from 3-6 months up to 4 years. They're on the roomy side so you get great value for money. Use the colour co-ordinated ties for a good fit.

I love space saving play mats. I really love these bespoke ones from Favour. . Laid out it has a diameter of approx 1 metre (plenty of space for a baby or toddler). Pull the draw strings and it closes up into a nice little bundle that is completely flexible (throw it under the sofa or in a cupboard) and it encompasses all the toys that were on the mat! Hello super speedy tidy up time! You can even throw under the buggy or in the car to take it with you on an outing/ time away

Lilith Loves Henry
Another show favourite. I met the couple behind this business through NomNom Kids.
They make delightful and safe teething jewellery. They have more recently expanded the range to dummies, teething toys and some gorgeous stacking cups. You'll be spoilt for choice for yourself of gift buying.

Jo & Nic's Crinkly Cloth Books
This is my favourite find of 2020! A newspaper for babies. Such a cute idea! There are two types, comics or nursery times.
They are safe, sensory, tactile and washable. This is definitely a lovely gift that will grow with your child. You can even have your very own personalised nursery times!!

Raum and wide
I love all things Scandi. You can see the influence in my home. Now we have so much more than Ikea bring us clean, clutter free style.
I'm in love with most of the Danish prints available at Raum and Wide. Check out the section for 'littlies'. I have put a picture here of a gorgeous lion print. Perfect to grace a newborn nursery right through to a toddlers playroom and beyond.
