With only 4 weeks to go until my new arrival is here I thought perhaps it was time to buy a few new baby essentials. It's so different from last time when we needed to get what seemed like absolutely everything! A never ending list of "essentials", many of which you don't really need at all. We spent ages researching the things we would definitely need like the best pram, car seat & nursery furniture and stocked up on bed clothes, baby clothes, nappies & toys.
This time we haven't done as much, apart from decorating the nursery in our new house and ordering Rowan his "big boy bed" so the baby can eventually have his cot. We already have the majority of stuff we're going to need from the first time round, although that may change once we find out if we're having a boy or a girl. I did, however, want to get the baby some new vests, baby grows and an outfit for coming home in and so had great fun picking some tiny little outfits out. I can't remember Rowan ever being so small when I look at the things I got!
As you may know one of the gift ranges we offer here at BasketsGalore are Baby Gift Baskets, so I've also been enjoying cooing over all the cute clothes, booties and teddies.
Getting us in the mood for summer are these cute "Beach Ball" babygrows from Olive & Moss.
They are now featuring in a number of our baby gift baskets for the summer months, such as one of our bestsellers: Little Monkey Boy/Girl.
We tend to include a larger size of clothes in our baby baskets (3-6 months), as the newborn size might be too small for a lot of babies by the time someone arranges a gift to arrive and as birth weights have increased. Some of our range do come in sizes 0-3 months however, and some 0-6 or 6-12 months depending on your preference.
If you wish to make a special request or check clothes sizes please just drop us an email or live chat with us.
