Sustainable Gift Ideas For A New Baby

One of our favourite things about life in Venner is helping our customers find the right gift for celebrating the arrival of a new baby. It’s a time when gifts are given in abundance, and with increasing awareness of the importance of shopping responsibly, it's great that there are an increasing number of ethical and sustainable gifts to choose from. From plastic-free practical and useful items to beautifully designed toys that are made to last and be cherished, we've rounded up some of our favourite new baby gifts.
1. Fabelab Snoozy Bear Cuddle - Cute snoozy bear cuddle in a joyful, sunshine yellow from wonderful Danish Brand Fabelab. Made from the softest organic cotton, filled with recycled polyester and machine washable, a wonderful eco-friendly gift that looks great in the nursery. 
 
2. Main Sauvage Knitted Toys - made to last and be loved for a lifetime, these adorably dressed critters are made from 100% alpaca wool and are a really special gift.
 
3. Nathalie Bond Gentle Baby Balm - This 100% natural, nourishing baby balm was developed in Sheffield by Nathalie Bond when pregnant with her first child. This unscented balm is useful for the whole family! Protecting against nappy rash, a nipple balm for breastfeeding and a soothing moisturiser for face and body.  
 
4. Mustard Elephant New Baby Gift Set -  Curated by us, it's a perfect parcel of useful cuteness! One super handy organic cotton muslin cloth, and a very sweet and soft elephant toy made from organic cotton off cuts. All wrapped and ready to go in a gorgeous gift box, we can hand write a note from you to the recipient if needed. 

We hand pick everything on our shelves and are meticulous in our choices, making sure that toys have that all important cute factor and that they’re made ethically from sustainable materials. We buy from a whole host of wonderful independent brands and makers. When they don't make their products themselves, they ensure that the workshops and factories they work with treat people and the environment fairly and respectfully.
We offer free gift wrapping online and can hand write a gift message too. Please get in touch if you need any help choosing, we're always happy to assist! Email hello@venner-store.co.uk or come and visit us in the shop!
Thanks for reading! Lots of love, Tiff & Lucie xx
