Top 5 Gifts for New Parents

Top 5 Gifts for New Parents
Here they are, our top five, chosen because we feel that, especially during a pandemic, presents should be both practical but still fun, that they will actually use and enjoy. Gift the sleep-deprived parents in your life with things that will make their lives easier!


1. Owlet Smart Sock Baby Monitor 3

Ahhh, the luxury of innovation! The Smart Sock is the first baby monitor to track a baby’s oxygen level and heart rate—the best indication of baby’s health—while they sleep. If the baby’s readings leave pre-set “safe” zones, they’ll receive a notification that lets them know their baby really needs them. Use the sleep history feature to see how long and how well your baby slept and use the data to create new routines as your baby grows.


£279 or £389 when combined with the Owlet cam.


2. Beaba Babycook® Neo

The latest Baby Food Steamer Blender from Beaba that Steam cooks, blends, defrosts and reheats in a jiffy. Made with respect for the environment and the nutritional quality of food. It is an eco-designed product using 48% less Carbon dioxide and 50% less water and energy consumption than the Babycook® Solo model so ideal for any green parents who want to cook quality food for their little ones.




3. Gus & Beau Playmat


Best for parents who like baby products to blend into their interior design. It’s so hard to find baby gear that compliments your pre-baby furnishings – but Gus & Beau playmats are designed to blend in rather than clash with beautiful minimal designs and muted colours. Practical, stylish, fun and functional at the same time!  


From £70 for 6 tiles (120cm x 180cm).



4. Cuddledry 'Hands-free' Baby Towel


Take the stress out of bath time with this amazing gift for frazzled parents! The Cuddledry is a baby towel that attaches to the parent like an apron, keeping them dry and allowing them to lift and wrap their baby quickly and easily. Just pop the hood over your baby's head, and simply cuddle them dry. Made with super soft bamboo and cotton, with TWO layers of towelling so baby is snug and warm.  Beautifully boxed and luxurious quality.


£34 plus £10 for personalisation if required.


5. Cook Gift Card

New parent or not, this is the perfect present for any parent who need a break from the kitchen. Often when a new baby comes along, cooking goes out of the window. It’s hard to find the time to get to the shops and it’s even harder to find time to make delicious and nutritious meals with your hands full. Cook meals are tasty hand-prepared meals you can keep in the freezer for those days when you just don’t have the energy.
New Parents 7 day (14 x one portion meals, for two) £63.50.  

We love these thoughtful but practical gifts and hope you do too but if you’re looking for something to create more last memories,  a beautiful bronze casting of their baby’s feet, a baby's first year journal or a baby or family photography sitting to capture those precious memories of their baby’s first Christmas would make a cherished gift.
