Best Gifts for Babies – in honour of the new Princess Charlotte!

We have often had discussions with friends and colleagues about the best gifts to buy for different occasions, from big birthdays to new house moves and more recently for new mums. Weddings are usually taken care of by a gift list so it’s the other events that tend to get everyone stumped. The last thing you want to do is be the friend who buys them another unimaginative voucher.

We’ve been experimenting with different gift combos for newborns depending on the price point. One of our new favourite things to do is to build a bespoke hamper (or Haute Box!) to put a few little things together. We’ve created our own suggestions for our three Haute Box options – £50, £100 and a couple of splurge ideas, depending on how much you want to spend. Let us know what you think, and if you need a hand sourcing other little extras to make the whole package look even more special.

P.s. it is really obvious that I don’t like “colour”?!
