This cute Etsy seller has a range of poems for boys and girls that can be personalised with a baby’s name. Not only are they great pieces of art for a nursery, but having the baby’s name within is a lot more of a meaningful gift and gives them something they can grow up reading.

This range of simple t-shirts for mums have a variety of humorous slogans on them. This is a small, local brand creating products that are affordable, creative and that wash well.

There are sets for boys and girls, and they range from standard age cards, to ones created to Mark other significant moments in a baby’s development – from crawling for the first time, to saying their first word.totes Ladies Novelty Reindeer Slippers*** – £22, totes
All mums need time to relax, and these cute reindeer slippers will keep their feet comfortable and warm whilst they do so. As usual from totes, these are great quality. They also have a whole host of more simple designs, if reindeers aren’t up your street.Large Knitted Orange Diplodocus Soft Toy – £29.99, My Best Years
This beautiful knitted dinosaur from a small, independent British brand is just delightful. It’s bright, fun, soft and cute; so is something that all young kids will love.
