Most of my favourite clothes and gifts for both Lara and Holly when they were babies were always the most simple, natural items. Natures Purest asked us to review some of their beautiful organically grown, natural cotton baby gifts and we weren't disappointed.
While I love to choose organic and natural clothing, bedding and blankets for my girls, I will admit that the first time I visited the Natures Purest website, I was a little taken aback by the prices. However, as soon as I received the items, I totally understood why Natures Purest consistently win awards for their new baby gifts and that the quality and origin of their products justifies the costs.
I think my favourite items from the range are all clothing (there are some beautiful natural cotton dresses on the website. The cute baby booties are stretchy and soft and they come presented in a recycled cardboard box with a heart-shaped aperture which they recommend turning into a photo-keepsake box after use.
This gorgeous stretchy cable knit blanket also is beautifully presented to make a lovely gift and yet it is totally practical. I love the simplicity and the fact that as a real knit, it is warm yet breathable so it is perfect for a newborn. Actually, i quite fancy one for myself.
Holly has been very taken with this Natures Natalie Ragdoll. At £25 she would make a very special gift for any little girl. Natures Natalie is suitable from birth and she fits right in with Holly's nursery. Holly likes to snuggle her soft velour face and arms whereas her older sister enjoys taking her cardigan and dress on and off! Natalie gets a lot of attention in our house - she is pushed in the pram, fed food and offered milk!
One of the most popular products on the Natures Purest site is this ballerina bunny which is made from a really light coloured fabric and looks almost angelic! I'm saving this for a very special niece due to make their appearance in 2014 as I think she will make a fabulous natural and organic newborn gift.
Do take a look at Natures Purest - their baby gifts are absolutely stunning. All natural fabrics, natural colours and with quality in every single detail.
