A Whole Lot of Love 2016 Christmas Gift Guide - Gift Inspiration to get your Christmas Shopping Sorted

Posted by


Babies don't know the difference between a rag and a cute soft toy, but Mum's do so a baby gift has got to be cute, and it’s got to last and perhaps be kept as a keepsake. What’s more, it’s going to go in bub’s mouth so as well as cute it’s got to be safe. Here are some lovely rattles, comforters and soft toys to put a smile on bub’s and Mum’s face. 

1. Organic Cotton Musical Monkey Soft Toy  2. My Natural-Teething Toy Elephant 3. Plan Toys- First Wooden Shape Shorter 4. Plush Mushroom Tumbler- Spiegelburg 5. Little Doggo Rattle Comforter- Keptin Jr 6. My Natural- Sleepytime Lovie Blanket Giraffe 7. Plan Toys- Wooden Car Grasping Toy 8. Plan Toys- Baby Phone with Magnetic Screen 9. Alice Musical Soft Toy Kangaroo.


If you are gifting to someone else's baby and you want a useful gift then why not a gorgeous blanket, portable change mat, play mat or organic bamboo teether. Mum can do with more than one of these items so no need to worry about double ups.

Baby will grow into a toddler and begin ‘learning through play’. At this time, you will need something more interactive. At A Whole Lot of Love, we believe that interactive doesn’t mean bells and whistles, it means structure, colour and the opportunity for open ended play. A child is born with a strong imagination and self-directed play is the key to keeping it alive. Here as some great gift suggestions for your growing toddler.
