So what do you do if you are friends with the royal family and the Duke and Duchess of Cambridge have their first baby and you want to get them a gift? What on earth do you buy the new baby who potentially already even before he/she is born has everything?
Here are a few ideas:
Ultimate Deluxe Baby Girl Gift Hamper from www.babybuntings.co.uk contains champagne, rattles, hats and all sorts for the new arrival and priced at £245.99 it seems a princely sum for the new arrival.
www.My1styears.com have a 100% cashmere gift set which can be personalised. Priced at £120 this lovely collection is a gorgeous gift for the royal baby.
www.babyblooms.co.uk offer a bouquet of silk flowers and baby items such as sleepsuits, bibs and socks. The Ultimate bouquet is priced at £70 and had a lot of the basics needed for the newborn.
www.notonthehighstreet.com has a range of personalised gifts from wooden trains and framed posters to this gorgeous wooden personalised keepsake box. Priced at £40 for the size shown we think this is a lovely different idea for the royal couple.
A rocking horse – is surely a must have for the royal newborn? Gorgeous wooden rocking horses are available from www.rockinghorse.co.uk This black beauty is priced at £4,000.
www.selfriges.co.uk have this Armani change bag to help the Duchesscarry the baby essentials but still look fabulous. Priced at £185 this could be a great gift and a dark colour will go with any buggy!
As Prince William asked if they could fit a baby seat in the Batmobile on his recent tour of Warner Brother Studios, we thoughts these little booties would be a hit with the royals, priced at £16.99 from www.truffleshuffle.co.uk
The parents and family usually have the bigger items already organised before baby comes, but accessories for these can be a great gift, such as a mobile for the cot? This is the Fisher-Price Precious Planet 2-in-1 Projection Cot Mobile and is priced at £59.99
So what classic items can the Royal couple get:
www.sophielagirafe.co.uk I think every new born has had a Sophie Giraffe – so the new royal shouldn’t miss out!
Bibs, vests, sleepsuits, body suits – galore! Usually you get hundreds for newborn and 0-3 months – so if you are ever struggling for a gift, why not get the next size up, as everyone forgets how quickly they grow and how useful those bigger sizes can be!
A Jelly cat cuddly toy, from rabbits to monkeys, Jelly Cat do a great range of gorgeous small pastel coloured creatures to brightly coloured noisy creatures.
Blankets from knitted to quilted and super soft to fleece, there are blankets in all materials, colours and patterns they are sure to receive a few, but they come in so handy!
We had great fun looking for gift ideas! We wish the Royal couple lots of happiness with their new bundle of joy and we can’t wait to see all the pictures and finally learn if it is a boy or girl and what the name will be.
