We’ve got a selection of gifts for newborn boys you’ll absolutely love.

1. George the Dinosaur Knitted Soft Toy

George is a fearsome prehistoric creature. But not so fierce that he doesn't enjoy a hug or two. Made of 100% cotton with felt claws, he's softer than he looks, and he's a firm favourite with babies. They enjoy the bright colours and the tactile materials. George will be there year after year to provide comfort and cuddles when needed. Not to mention, this dino was handmade in Bangladesh, using organic cotton, providing women in rural areas with fair, paid employment.

2. Personalised Embroidered Grey Star Blanket

When it comes to gifts for baby boys or babies in general, one item high on the list is a gorgeous, soft baby blanket. Go one step further with this personalised star blanket, covered with tiny stars in a soft, neutral grey. If you know the baby’s name, this is a heartfelt and meaningful gift for a new baby.

What you'll love about this baby blanket is that it's double-sided. Where one side is starry, the other side is covered in stripes. What's more, it's made of 100% soft brushed cotton, which will help regulate the baby's temperature — ideal and necessary for those early days when baby can’t do that for themselves.

3. Pebble Fair Trade Crochet Octopus

Meet George the Dinosaur's aquatic brother — Pebble. Pebble is crochet with cool blue and green tones, and, like George, he's made of quality material — 100% cotton.

Pebble is perfect for little hands at fourteen centimetres. He's a tactile toy, and curious newborn fingers will love to play with his eight tentacles while cuddling up to him at night. You'll be happy to know that Pebble is machine washable — and we’ll let you in on one baby hack early on. Get two of the baby’s favourite cuddly toy. That way, when one is in the wash, his replacement can put in a shift with baby.
