Buying gifts for babies and children can be quite difficult, especially if they’re not your kids! There’s so much choice and sometimes it’s hard to be creative. Babies get bought a lot. You might want to find something they may not already have; something unique.
What about a pregnant woman? What do they want for Christmas? Do you buy them something maternity related, something baby related, or something to make them feel a little less pregnant and just like ‘them’.
Mamas & Papas have just launched their new Gift Finder so I thought I’d give it a try and tell you about it!
The gift finder allows you to say whether you’re the parent, a family member, or friend. You then give the birthday of who you’re buying for, their gender and what the occasion is. Once the finder has this information it will suggest three gifts ideas for you.
My first search was for BB for Christmas. The gift finder suggested 3 very christmassy items, which personally I wouldn’t buy as a gift, but would buy in general. I’d rather it showed me toys or clothing. A stocking or santa sack would be something I buy for my child anyway. However, if I was searching as a family member, I would probably choose to buy something like this for a baby’s first christmas gift.
I then changed my search to a birthday gift and it gave me the 3 options above. Lovely suggestions! We had a rocker similar for Lamb and they really are fab. The bouncer is absolutely gorgeous. However, BB is 7 months old and this is suitable for up to 6 months, so not something I’d buy BB at this age. But if he was a newborn it would be the perfect gift!
One of the hardest gifts to buy is for a pregnant/new mum. I think the suggestions above are great. If I was actually buying for someone, I would be happy to purchase one of the above. I think they would be very well received. I certainly would of been happy with them the 2 Christmas’s I’ve been pregnant!
I’ve played around with the finder and overall I think it’s a great tool to point you in the right directions with buying gifts from Mamas and Papas.
Why not give it a try?
