{Gifts for New Babies}

My sister gave us the most gorgeous bespoke cake stand from Corn Kist Ceramics when my daughter was born. The cake stand had the text 'sugar and spice and all things nice, that's what little girls are made of' and 'snips and snails and puppy dog tails, that's what little boys are made of' round the edge and in the middle is a heart with my son's name and date of birth along with my daughter's details too. On the stand is has a personalised message with details of who the gift is from. I'll get photos asap (we used the stand at my son's birthday party and I'm waiting on my sister getting photos to me!).

Another gift we were given for my daughter was a gorgeous personalised fleece baby blanket from Bundles of Joy. The blanket is embroidered with her name and date of birth. It's washed well and is still lovely and soft.

My friend Becky and I also came across some fabulous socks for baby girls in a local gift shop Nuala Ashe. The socks are by Trumpette and have the most adorable little satin bows on them... Becky is going to buy a pair for my daughter's Christmas present :-)

A gift that I have purchased for a few new babies is personalised wooden letter blocks from Hush Baby Sleeping at Not On The High Street.  They would look lovely on a nursery shelf, and they come in a variety of colours so can be personalised to suit colour schemes. Perfect!

My neighbour has just opened a card & gift shop in Glasgow called Velvet Moon. I was able to pop into town to have a browse the other week when she opened, although my visit was rushed as I had two screaming babies in tow! She has some lovely items in the shop and I purchased a few bits & pieces, including a very cute Jelly Cat cow that I haven't seen before. It will make an ideal new baby gift for one of my many pregnant friends!

Something I came across fairly recently is The Food Stork.  It's such a great idea - they deliver freshly prepared food gifts for new parents. As a new parent, life is exhausting, so to have a few healthy meals delivered to your door would be lovely! (Are you still classed as a new parent when your baby is 4 months because I would still love to have some meals delivered to me!!!).


  1. It seems more and more, more mature males from the late 20s for the mid 40s
    are receiving involved with girls ranging from 16-20.
    Just in a basic social observation, both the ladies and males appear to want these types of interactions, and it frequently finishes in a short time and
    is emotionally harming.
