Need a gorgeous newborn gift? Look no further


Shopping for a newborn baby – is there anything more fun? Why is it that everything in miniature size is so darn cute.

But it’s hard to know where to start! What’s suitable and safe for newborns, what the parents will use or need, and what just ends up in a forgotten drawer?

So, we’re teamed up with our pals over in the Early Learning Centre at Mothercare to whittle down the ten perfect baby gifts you can get. We’ve chosen from a mix of the Blosson Farm and Loved So Much ranges which are designed specifically to be safe for newborns.

Mothercare has a Love Half Price Toys sale on until this Sunday 4th October. Click here for all the details.

Prepare for some oohs and ahhs.
