Gift Ideas for a New Baby Girl

If someone you love is expecting a lovely baby girl, we’ve come up with some great ideas of gifts you can buy for her (or mum) to welcome her into the world and to show her just how much she’s loved already. There’s something for all budgets and tastes too, to prove you don’t have to spend a fortune to put a smile on mum’s face.

An expanding bangle
Getting a new baby girl obsessed with jewellery early on is a great idea, and the best way to do this is to buy her a baby bangle that expands and grows as she does! We love this one as you can get it engraved which adds a really lovely personal touch to an already lovely gift idea.

A knitted baby blanket
Baby blankets always come in really useful and if you want a really special gift, you could opt for a really luxurious, frivolous one that mum and dad are unlikely to buy for themselves. John Lewis does some for all budgets and for both genders as well as some neutral ones too which is handy if you don’t know the sex of the baby yet. You could even look into options that allow you to get them personalised with their name embroidered on which is a nice idea.
A fancy dress outfit
One of the best parts of having a little girl is of course being able to dress her up in adorable outfits! Start off mum’s obsession by purchasing a really sweet or funny little fancy dress outfit that she’ll love to put baby in. There are loads of great options around, and I especially love the pink elephant ones that will look ridiculously cute on the new arrival.

A special teddy bear
You definitely can’t go wrong with a lovely first teddy bear, and there are so many options out there nowadays that this doesn’t have to be just your standard newborn gift. Some stores like Build a Bear even allow you to print out birth certificates for the bears and dress them up which is really sweet and will make that first teddy bear that bit more special, too.

Useful (but cute!) girly accessories
You can’t really go wrong with Cath Kidston stuff when it comes to finding something pretty and girly, and they even have useful things that mum will really appreciate (as well as fall head over heels in love with). We love the bib and teddy bear sets, but there are lots of other things available to take a look at, too.

...Or how about something for mum?
You can get flowers for new baby girl and gift sets with bottles of bubbly in them and a teddy online which makes a lovely gift that mum will love and will show her how much she’s appreciated too. Some luxurious toiletries to help her get some much-needed pamper time is a nice idea too, for when she gets a rare five minutes to herself!

Until next time,
