Ethical baby gifts
Ethical gifts for babies
Buying consciously and ethically is something we should do in every area of our lives including buying gifts. We have a great range of ethical gifts that are perfect for all ages from newborns to grandparents.
Buying ethically is a choice we make and it’s not always easy, not least because it can be very difficult to determine whether or not the things you buy are ethical or not.
Respecting both people and the planet is something we are passionate about, which is why we only sell products from suppliers we consider to be ethical, making it easier for you to choose great gifts for your family and friends.
Reusable baby gifts
If you’re looking for a more eco-friendly alternative to traditional baby shower gifts how about considering reusable nappies or a baby carrier. You could make a far more beautiful nappy cake with reusables than you ever could with disposable nappies, and the gift of babywearing is such a wonderful present to give to new parents and their babies.
Reusable nappies can be a big expense for parents so clubbing together with friends and getting a starter kit makes a fantastic gift that could save them huge amounts of money as well as save thousands of disposable nappies from ending up in the landfill.
In the same vein as nappies we think reusable wipes make a great gift. Most baby wipes you buy in the shops are made of plastic. They don’t biodegrade and they cause massive issues when they are flushed down the toilet. Switching to reusable nappies might be a big commitment and not one you can make on someone else’s behalf, but switching to reuseable wipes, even if just when you are at home, can have a big impact. Plus the gorgeous colours make them a lovely gift.
Ethical baby gifts
Wooden toys make great ethical baby gifts that are perfect for baby showers, christenings or any other occasions. Wooden toys come in all shapes and sizes and you could either go for teethers and rattles that can be played with (almost) straight away, or more heirloom style toys that double as room decor.
Moulin Roty is a French company run as a cooperative that make the most amazing baby shower gifts. Their unique range of soft toys, comforters and rattles are ethical, high-quality and offer buckets of sensory stimulation for tiny tots.
We are also huge fans of Rubens Barn who make the most delicious soft dolls and empathy dolls. While many of their dolls are suitable from birth the mini eco-buds make a wonderful gift for a new baby. They are small and light making them easy for baby to hold and cuddle, plus they come with a fabric tie allowing you to attach them to the buggy, car seat or carrier when you are out and about.
Plus, Rubens Barn plant a tree for every mini eco-bud they sell.
If you are buying for older babies we also have a great range of ethical gifts for toddlers.
