When it comes to buying gifts for a baby, it’s definitely a case of you’ve got to have one to know one! Unless of course you’ve been surrounded by babies of friends and family for a number of years and you’re a seasoned baby gift buyer.
I for one didn’t have a clue before I had a child of my own and definitely bought gifts that were completely impractical or undesirable for my sister and sister-in-law when they each had babies. I remember scouring the baby aisles, overwhelmed by the sheer number of products you can buy for babies and clueless about what they’re all used for! And don’t even get me started on online shopping, which can be overwhelming at the best of times – especially when you’re not entirely sure what you’re looking for.
Enter Mamas & Papas who have created a handy gift finder especially for those of us buying for babies. The gift finder helps you narrow in on the perfect presents by asking you a few simple questions such as the age of the baby/due date, how much you want to spend, and your relationship to the baby (friend/family/parent to be…). It will then suggest a select number of gifts based on your criteria, taking away the need to spend hours trawling through numerous, irrelevant search results.
There are a number of gifts perfect for Christmas including practical and stylish sets for ‘My First Christmas’, and there are also a number of suggestions ideal for birthday celebrations, christenings or a new arrival. I personally love the idea of the Bundle of Joy sets – they have varying ones, for example for feeding or bathing, and include everything a new parent could need. They also contain Mamas & Papas gift cards in varying amounts, so the parents can buy anything else they need after the gifts stop coming!
