Useful gifts for 1-year-olds
Looking for a practical baby gift idea? Teething is a tough time in any baby’s life, but it can be a real headache for parents. Help Baby stay comfortable with a special teething soother made just for them. A good one will be able to be clipped to the baby’s bib so it’s never out of sight, and it should always be BPA-free. I like this one because it has a variety of sizes and textures on the chain that will keep the baby entertained and occupied.

Sentimental gift idea for new parents
The first few months and years of a baby’s life are so important to their parents and families. If you’re looking for a sentimental gift idea for babies consider a customised keepsake box to help Mum and Dad keep all of their most special memories in one place! They’ll love looking back through the years at the photos and small keepsakes that they’ve collected to remind them of those special moments.
Custom luxury baby gift
If you want to impress with an extra-special personalised baby gift, consider a toy box or other piece of nursery furniture. A toy box, especially a quality wooden one, will be a staple in the baby’s nursery for years, so choose one in a neutral color like white to make sure that it looks great in Baby’s room as they grow.
Elegant personalised christening gift
Christenings are such a special time for a family, as they welcome a new life into their circle. A special moment like that deserves a quality keepsake baby gift.
