Gift Inspiration for New Babies 

Have you had the wonderful news that your best friend is expecting? Looking for a gift for your sister's baby shower or looking to treat a new arrival in your life to something beautiful?

We have curated our top bought gifts into one handy section so you can find the perfect gift for newborn boys and girls. 

Baby Swaddle Blanket

Swaddling babies is a practice as old as time when it comes to new babies. This method of wrapping a baby securely, usually with a stretchy, light-weight blanket, is thought to help to protect them against their natural startling reflex, reduces anxiety and aids sleep. Many believe restricting the movement of their arms and legs helps to mimic life inside the womb.

Here at L&L one of our most popular newborn gift items is our Chamomile Rose Swaddle Blanket & Donut Headwrap Set and it's not hard to see why. This beautiful print has a wonderfully vintage charm to it. Our swaddle blankets also make stunning backdrops for those special milestone photographs; moses basket bottom sheets, or as a light-weight stroller blanket in the Summer. Available with a choice of co-ordinating accessories including the headwrap, hat & headband you can create the perfect gift for a newborn baby girl.

Looking for a swaddle for a new baby boy? Don't worry we have you covered. Our swaddle and hat sets can be made out of any of our jersey fabrics - all you need to know is the name of the print you would like. You can use the same item listing and simply need to pop the name of your desired print in the customisation section. That means there are over 50 prints for you to choose from! For baby boys Paper Planes is giving us all the heart eyes.

Welcome to the World New Baby Gift Set

Monochrome baby clothing is a great choice for parents who are expecting a surprise and don't want to stick to the classic lemon of gender neutral babywear. This exclusive print features a 'Welcome to the World' slogan with cute, tiny footprints. Designed in house you won't find this print anywhere else and it makes THE PERFECT coming home outfit. Many of our customers have chosen to purchase this new baby gift set alongside 2 plain hats; one baby pink and one baby blue to announce their babies arrival in style.

This gift set comes with a choice of accessories including a Popper Romper (with or without those all important integrated scratch mitts), hat, headband, bib and blanket or swaddle. 

Already know what you are having? Don't worry! On this listing you even have the option to choose from adding baby pink or blue trims for some extra flare.

Personalised Dungarees

These cute customisable, personalised dungaree rompers are great for new babies, birthdays and baby showers. Available in a choice of colours up to 6 years these funky little rompers can feature a little one's name, nickname or even cute 'Hello' Slogan. One of my favourite customs so far has been 'Little Sister' 'Big Sister' twinning dungas!

The choice is completely yours; just pop your chosen text in the customisation field and we'll do the rest. Available with a choice of accessories including cute knotted baby hats, headbands and bibs.

Rainbow Baby Romper & Hat Set

Celebrating the arrival of a special rainbow baby? You are not alone. In fact, one of our most searched for terms is 'Rainbow Baby Clothes'. We wanted to create a Rainbow print that was a little different from the rest and this is what we came up with. Rainbow baby but with a little bit of L&L zest thrown in for good measure to really make those first photographs pop. As always these cute Rainbow Babygros come in sizes newborn to 6 years and have a range of coordinating accessories to really complete the look.

We hope you like our top picks for new baby gifts and outfits. Still not sure? Why not gift Mum & Dad a Lottie & Lysh gift voucher so they can cruise by at their leisure to select some goodies for their new arrival. Ensure you provide a full disclaimer and take no responsibility for their resulting L&L addiction though ;) That is a well documented thing!
