Newborn Baby Gift ListBy Thoroughly Modern Baby 19th February 2015
Do you know that way, when you’re pregnant you see pregnant women everywhere? Well, it seems that ever since we started a baby goods website ALL of our friends have decided to produce perfectly formed little customers for us!
As a result, we are in the midst of a Newborn Baby Fest here at #TMBaby, with some of our favourite people pregnant or sitting in that happy, tired daze that comes from an overflow of love and 25 minutes of sleep!
Our 2015 Baby Fest started with Lou’s oldest and bestest friend, Joanne, giving birth to Baby Boy Dunbar, a gorgeous wee brother for Ruby. Next up was Tracey who set the bar high with a boy and a girl; Jude and Eden are younger siblings for two year old Eli and already ruling the roost! Our very own Gorgeous Pregnancy blogger, Mrs M gave birth to Freya Elizabeth after 42 weeks and we’re only just into February.
It has literally been a wave of Cuddledry Towels and ergoPouch Swaddles!
We have yet to announce news from Martina in April, Looby Lou in June, Lynne with another set of twins in July and Lesley in August. As well as FOUR of Lou’s NCT friends - Agnese in March, Helen in April, Lizzie in June and Susie in August. Wow!
Anyhow, it got to us to thinking that a newborn gift list would be a perfect idea for everyone out there looking to purchase a gift for any new arrivals in their life. We’ve certainly had enough testers to give us their feedback and let us know some of their favourites.
Here’s our list – please let us know if you have any great ideas to add!
With much love to all of our new little favourites,
Nicki and Lou XX
