Christmas Gift Guide - For Infants

Christmas is just around the corner and for the past couple of weeks I've been publishing my annual gift guides, they're a great way to get a little bit of inspiration before the big day. I've already published my gift guide for men, one for us ladies, one for the kids and today brings me to my final one for the year, aimed at the little ones in our lives. Having a baby myself I've included a lot of items that I'd personally love to receive for Ava, especially the essentials which are listed towards the top of the guide. I hope my suggestions give you a couple of gift inspiration and ideas for Christmas and beyond.

Ewan the Dream Sheep - £29.99
Ewan the Dream Sheep plays soothing sounds on a low and slow base frequency and emits a calming pink glow, designed to help babies drift off to sleep. There are three white noise sound options, the vacuum cleaner, rain falling and womb sounds and gentle harp music, all of which play for 20 minutes giving your baby plenty of time to doze off to sleep gently. Ewan is number one on my list for a reason, there are so many parents who swear by this little fluffy sheep, myself included. Both Noah and Ava have one each, Noah has the purple original Ewan and Ava has the new grey version. The perfect gift for any new baby.

Winnie The Pooh Baby Eeyore Soft Toy - £12.99
Rainbow Designs have collaborated with The Walt Disney Company to launch a stunning new collection of infant soft toys. The new Hundred Acre Wood Signature Collection features one of the world’s most famous bears, Winnie the Pooh and some of his most lovable friends. We received Eeyore from the collection and I think he would make a lovely first teddy to a new baby on their very first Christmas.

Twinkle Twinkle Grobag - from £38.99
Grobag's are another of my baby essentials, I swear by them! When a friend is pregnant or when someone is thinking of buying a gift for a baby, a Grobag is always the first thing I recommend. In case you didn't know, a Grobag Baby Sleep Bag is a wearable blanket that will keep your baby at a comfortable temperature all night long. There are different togs for different temperatures and more details about togs and temperatures can be found on their website. Grobags are so much safer than using loose cot blankets as nothing can ride upon their face whilst they are sleeping, this of course is great for peace of mind. We are currently using the Twinkle Twinkle Grobag which is a 3.5 tog and comes in three different sizes, from 0-6 months through to 18-36 months. This is a great option for the winter months, especially if the bedroom your baby sleeps in a cool room like Ava does. The dark blue velour material is absolutely heavenly and I kind of wish they did them in adult sizes too!  

aden + anais Classic Dream Blanket - £44.95
aden + anais are another of my all-time favourite baby brands, they are famous for their multi-functional muslin cloths but their classic dream blankets are amongst my favourite products that they produce. These blankets feature four layers of 100% cotton muslin for the softest, most plush baby blanket ever! It uses go beyond keeping your baby warm but it also makes a comfortable surface to lay your little one on no matter where the day takes you, to the park, the beach or just playing around on the floor. They come in an array of different colours and patterns and they usually have matching muslin cloths and musy cloths too!
Rudolph Chirstmas Bibetta Bib - £7.50
When it comes to babies and Christmas you have to go all out with Christmas themed gifts and this festive bib is the perfect attire for when they are at the table, eating their Christmas dinner! Made from flexible and waterproof neoprene, with a soft pocket that folds out to catch any dropped food. This makes this bib perfect for baby-led weaning because not only does it catch any dropped food but they can easily retrieve the food themselves and carry on eating. Ava will be wearing hers on Christmas day, that's for sure! 

Tots Bots Easyfit Star - £17.99
Reusable nappies are a great gift idea for those environment-conscious parents out there and Tots Bots are the best of the best, in my humble opinion! Their award-winning Easyfit Star is the ultimate one-piece reusable nappy for absorbency, fit & comfort, with an out of this world performance. Their super absorbent bamboo core is so soft and gentle next to babies' bum. They have stayed dry buffer zones to keep liquid locked into core, making sure the baby is comfortable and dry. One size fits most, from birth through to potty training! Using cloth nappies can save parents hundreds of pounds and buying all the different prints and patterns can become quite addictive, don't say I didn't warn you!

Hape Teddy and Friends Bath Squirts - £9.99
If bath time with your little ones is more hassle than enjoyment then look no further than Hape’s Little Splashes range.

It’s soft and pliable material can be squished, stretched and manipulated in so many different ways. It's great for stretching, twisting and grasping too.
