Find the perfect baby gift
The wonderful news of a baby's birth have reached you, and now you're trying to find the perfect gift for the new arrival. Maybe you are looking for something a bit more exciting than a babygrow or a pack of muslin squares. Especially when you are looking for a gift that lasts the child a little longer than 2 weeks and also gets the new parent's approval, this can be a little challenge. As newborns don't really have much of an opinion (yet), let's focus on what parents value: High quality is a must for their precious bundle, so your gift has to be of the very best materials, durable, of course washable and last but not least it also has to look pretty. Therefore we'll be looking at wooden baby toys as well as some high quality soft toys. At Spotty Giraffe all our products have to be of high quality, well designed, fun and loveable. Wooden baby toys are a classic and we love the wooden baby gym by German toy makers Heimess. Even tiny babies love being entertained by the dangling figures and the sound of the little bell. The height adjustable baby gym grows with baby and lasts even into the toddler age as it can be used as a standing aid. Should you wish to give something a little smaller, why not choose a wooden pram toy, wooden mobile or rattle? Pram toys keep little ones happy whilst out and about and can also be used on car seats or cots. Like the baby gyms, pram chains stimulate hand/eye coordination and are perfect for grabbing and exploring. Colourful wooden rattles double as teething rings and are easy to hold even with little hands. So what alternative gift ideas are there to a wooden baby toy? Why not choose a high quality comforter by Sigikid or Käthe Kruse? The incredibly soft and often even organic fabric makes them perfect for baby's delicate skin and they are a friendly companion throughout the day. There are also matching fabric rattles and squeakers, beautifully designed and washable. Always popular are musical boxes - a soft toy that plays a soothing lullaby. The musical boxes can even be used by expectant mothers - babies recognise familiar sounds once they are born. Why not have a look at our truly wonderful baby gifts and give something different? Don't forget - we offer FREE gift wrapping, too!
