So just what do you put in a hamper for a newborn baby? Here at The Baby Hamper Company we have a section of out site called 'Create your Own', and it always amazes us some of the beautiful combinations of gifts that people put together for their loved ones. We often stand back in joy at the really thoughtful and complimentary selections of gifts presented in customers hamper boxes.
If you haven't a clue what your newborn babies parents would like, here's a guide on what you might want to include for a great gift -

Baby Clothes

It's always a great idea to include newborn clothes in a baby gift. You need so many and babies grown out of things so fast it costs new mums and dads a small fortune kitting out their little ones in a new wardrobe every three months! All our clothes are aged 0-3 months (most people will buy a newborn size) so they last just a little bit longer. If it's summertime, a rompersuits a great addition. We stock ones from Toby Tiger and they are great for boys or girls, 100% organic cotton so temperature regulating which is very important for babies.

Most of our products and clothing are unisex and parents will love that as they can then use all the gifts if another little one should come along. Why not go for the whole matching set for the rompersuit and add the matching hat....

Hats are a perfect little addition to a gift hamper as they are essential little items that are used year round. Our own brand hats come in three colours and are only £5.50 each.

There is also our matching range of own brand clothing, in unisex bright colours featuring hand drawn animal designs. These are a great wardrobe staple and perfect for everyday use. We stock bodysuits which are great in the summer just by themselves or for layering in the winter. We also have sleepsuits, particularly good in the colder weather these again are 100% cotton and have popper fixings at the bottom to make them easy to get on and off.

A popular addition to our product range is the Xplory box of socks. These look great in a hamper, and also good for bulking up the gifts to make them look more! Choose from bright stripes or stars design.

Being a new parent is a very intense and tiring time, so we've put together a range of products that we give new mummies a little treat and indulge in some much needed mummy time. Why not treat them to some of our Beefayre products... they really are fabulous! We always love packing the Beefayre products just because they smell so amazing, made from natural essential oils and beeswax. Beautifully packaged the bath milk and tea light trio would be a very well received gift.

We also have our own brand of bath truffles, perfect to drop into a soothing bath. A trio of pleasure for just £6.
