When Clara from Lucy and Belle got in contact about collaborating I was more than excited. I have admired her chic online baby boutique for quite some time. Unfortunately I had only discovered the shop when Freddie was a bit older so we kind of missed the boat for pretty outfits and fabulous accessories for being the pastel Queen/Prince on the block!!!Baby number two is now in on its way, so I’m most excited to be back at the baby stage. With a plethora of finely picked baby brands and a wonderful online system it’s hard not to have everything in your online shopping basket ready to go.
As we are expecting a little surprise I thought I would share some things from the shop which I think are perfect for a gender neutral baby. These are perfect to purchase yourself or even for a baby shower gift.
To begin with this Doudou et Compagnie little Rabbit is a must have. You got to start your toy collection early, right! This is something I will pack in my hospital bag, a midwife once told me to sleep with a small stuffed animal or comforter to get your scent on it. At some point you will have to put your baby down so the idea is to set it close to them so they can smell you that way they are more settled. I have to admit I’m not sure if this worked or if Freddie was a laid back baby but I’m not taking any risks!Next on my selection is this beautiful little star hooded towel (kindly modelled by Freddie below.) When we were in the hospital last time…I forgot TOWELS! So when Freddie was used for the bathing demonstration I didn’t have anything for the midwife to wrap him up in….so she used the hospital towels ! Whoops…I will not make the same mistake again. I mean hospital towels where fine for me but not my brand new tiny newborn, only the best for them.
Now something to store all the necessities in-Isn’t this vanity case so pretty? Perfect size to fit all the bits and bobs required for those cute little button noses and tiny tooshes too. In contrast to Freddie I had baskets in every room filled with items to change nappies and the likes. Now we have a roaming, climbing toddler-I’m not so sure that’s a good idea. This cute Vanity case is perfect to move room to room, what’s better is it has a zip. So less tempting to those mischievous toddler eyes!Finally, some tiny baby clothes. Obviously we have bags of clothes vacuum packed in the attic but you definitely have to get something new for the newest family addition. I chose this Newborn Pasito A Pasito Neutral gift set. Perfect for coming home in- A luxurious embroidered babygrow, a adorable cotton jacket and a beautiful blanket with scalloped edging. There are loads of Unisex gift ideas on the Lucy and Belle Website.
So there we are…I could spend all day picking items but that would turn into a very long blog post. I have linked some of my favourite items for Gender specific gifts below.
In the meantime, thanks for reading! 💕
