We’ve endured biblical style hail and rain in May, so I’m calling it a fickle spring. Worry not, my dears, the mercury will rise and now is the time to prepare for little one’s first Spring/Summer needs. We’ve compiled pointers to help you get the best baby gifts and high-end baby gift baskets to excite and delight giver and receiver, alike.
Quality v.s. Price:
I am a firm believer that you get what you pay for. Baby’s stuff takes a beating - milk and formula, first diapers, and multiple weekly washes. When a product is cheaply made, seams fray, pilling and uncomfortable fasteners render a piece less soft and gentle on baby’s delicate skin. Quality products mean better design, which translate to more comfort for baby and frequent usage for mom. On a smaller budget? A BYOB (Build Your Own Basket) consisting of one luxurious organic newborn sleeper and a beautifully crafted wooden rattle, will always win out over ten fussy fast fashion baby outfits that fall apart upon a second wash. Check out our New Arrivals tab for choice pieces.
Know your brands, know your sources:
Order our corporate baby baskets and rest assured you are gifting to the highest standards. We have built a business on developing relationships with designers and producers from around the world who work with some of the oldest looms, and design with baby’s movements and mom’s discerning eye in mind. From established lines to cool new indie brands we look for transparency, innovation, and tasteful aesthetics. What the established producers know about slow fashion, the newbies have learned through up-to-date sustainable practices. Be it a classic like Paz Rodriguez or the newer Petit Indy, we vet for quality and take pride in curating our exclusive baby baskets.
No matter the style we’ve got you covered. If your colleague is a minimalist, peruse our Neutrals section for gentle colours and gender non-specific selections. Similarly, our Girls and Boys tabs offer choice for every kind of taste from bright florals to classic mariner stripes, there’s something for everyone. Under Collections, offerings are divided by season and size should you wish to treat the parents ahead of season or age.
And finally, not sure what they might like? Our Gift Card allows mom and dad to select just the right outfit for their first in-house baby photo session or Zoom reveal.
Please stay safe and healthy!
