Having a new baby is one of the greatest miracles of life. After what seems like nine of the longest months, meeting that little bundle of joy can be such a blessing to all around. It’s been over five years since I gave birth to Hugo, my youngest and at the time, I shared some of the gifts we received. That post is still so popular, and with many friends about to give birth, it felt like the perfect time to refresh it.

The Glow Travel Sleep Easy

With a new baby comes a lot of disruption to sleep. This is entirely normal and expected; however, this difficult disruption, unfortunately, continues for some, and sleep aids can be really useful. Getting a baby to sleep is hard at the best of times but can be especially difficult whilst travelling. Well, Glow Dreaming have the perfect solution. The NEW Glow Travel Sleep Easy really is a game-changer for parents seeking peaceful nights, even while on the move. The Glow Travel Sleep Easy utilises a 3-in-1 sleep aid system: 

  • A soft red LED light gently encourages melatonin production, promoting sleepiness. 
  • Pink Noise covers ambient noises, ensuring uninterrupted slumber.
  • The built-in Scent Nebuliser brings comforting aromas to unfamiliar settings.

What’s more, the long-life, rechargeable battery is great for those day naps or a whole night’s sleep! This really is the perfect travel accessory for parents and is a gift that would come with a lot of gratitude! Priced at £99.95; find out more and purchase here.

The Glow Perfect Sleep Sensor

For the perfect night’s sleep when it comes to a baby, there are a number of different factors that need to be taken into consideration. If this feels remotely overwhelming, then the Glow Perfect Sleep Sensor by Glow Dreaming is your new best friend. This clever sensor takes parenting support to a whole new level, remotely monitoring the temperature and humidity of the room and then suggesting suitable clothing choices. The remote sensor will alert you if the room becomes too hot or dry without the need for you to disturb your sleeping baby. Not only will this help aid a good and restful sleep for baby, but it also adds peace of mind and reassurance to parents! This would make a great gift for any new parent. £99.95; you can find out more and purchase here.


It really can be difficult to find a gift for a new parent or baby with such a vast range of choices on the market. Without knowing what a parent really needs at that moment, it can be quite an overwhelming experience. You want to purchase a useful gift the parent actually wants and will use, but without being the actual parent, this can be quite a task. Well, Prezzee takes all of that stress out of the moment. This personalised gift card allows a multitude of choices, redeemable across renowned brands like John Lewis, Boots, and many, many more. 

Customise with a heartfelt message or video, and let new parents choose their perfect gift – whether it’s adorable baby attire, essential equipment for the nursery, or even a well-deserved takeaway during those early and very demanding days. Not only is this the perfect personal gift but great for maternity collections in the workplace or with a group of friends or family, and it’s completely digital too!

BabyBjörn Baby Carrier Mini

With both my children, I was a huge advocate for baby-wearing. When I gave birth to Hugo, I had an almost seven-year-old already, so I had to be quite mobile and on the go.

Its Scandinavian-inspired print is a beautiful and stylish touch making it the perfect accessory.
