13 Dec The Best Eco Friendly Baby Gifts 2019
The festive season is upon us, and with it, a shopping frenzy as we attempt to find the perfect gift for all the special people in our lives.
Gift-giving feels wonderful. But sometimes in the December rush, we can end up buying things without really considering the impact. Is the item truly needed? Is it made to last? And has it been made ethically and sustainably?
If you’re wanting to make a more mindful choice when selecting presents this Christmas, you’ll love our guide to the best eco-friendly baby gifts for the tiniest people on your list!
The Best Eco Friendly Christmas Gifts for Baby
It can be hard to know what to get a little person who’s only been on the planet for a short while. The truth is, babies don’t really need much – so putting a little thought into what you buy can make your present extra-special. There are so many eco friendly baby products on the market that are both useful, safe for baby and safe for the planet, too. And protecting our planet? Well, that might just be the greatest gift we can give to little ones!
We’ve rounded up a selection of eco friendly Christmas gift ideas for a sweet baby and their loving parents. Let’s take a look!
Organic baby skin care
If you’re looking for eco friendly baby gift ideas that are super-practical but feel luxurious to use, then Australian made organic baby skin care is a wonderful choice! Choose a brand committed to using 100% natural ingredients with no hidden synthetics or harsh fragrances. And of course, the products should be gentle, effective and safe to use from birth.
For a botanical blend that assists with calming and soothing during bath and bedtime, our Lavender & Chamomile range is ideal. For the Disney loving family, our Australian Goats Milk & Manuka Honey range offers deeply nourishing and naturally healing care – and features the adorable Winnie the Pooh on the packaging! For a stunningly presented present, a gift box is just the thing! Shop them here.
Eco friendly baby toys and teethers
Baby toys don’t have to be cheap and disposable. That’s why we love this Sophie La Girafe So Pure Senso Ball from the beloved and eco friendly Sophie brand. Made from 100% natural rubber and food grade paint, they’re safe for a teething bub to explore with their little gums. Bright colours, textures and holes keep a curious bubba entertained and help to develop their fine motor skills. Shop it here.
Organic cotton baby towels & wraps
Firstly, nobody can resist a baby with towel ears. Nobody! Secondly, this gorgeously snuggly towel from Dove & Dovelet is something new parents will use over and over – and bub will love the super-soft and wonderfully absorbent organic cotton fabric against their delicate skin. This is a lovely, luxe Christmas gift for a special little bubba that’s kind to the planet, too. Shop the Dove & Dovelet Organic Cotton Hooded Towel here.
Every new parent knows you can never have enough organic cotton baby wraps! The Bubba Organics Baby Snuggle Wrap is made from GOTS certified organic cotton to provide the softest, snuggliest experience for bubbas when it’s time to wrap and nap! The adorable logo pattern goes with everything, the sizing is super-generous for easy wrapping, and it’s available in four colour ways. Shop our organic baby wraps here.
Wooden baby toys
Treat an adored Aussie baby to the Noc Noc Wooden Toys Australian Animals Wooden Blocks – a gift to be treasured for years to come. Lovingly handcrafted in Australia, these wooden blocks feature six native animals including platypus, kangaroo, frilled neck lizard, koala, echidna and wombat. They’re light enough for little hands to grasp and make the best eco friendly baby gift, ensuring hours of creative play. Shop them here.
We also love the PlanToys Pastel Baby Rattle and Roll. Made to be safe, sustainable and stimulating for precious bubbas, this wooden baby toy is easy for babies to grasp, roll and shake to make interesting sounds. Shop it here.
A little eco friendly tip!
When you’re wrapping your baby gift, our eco friendly tip is to avoid paper that has any foil elements. Metallic sure looks pretty but unfortunately, it can’t be recycled. Why not go for brown butchers paper and adorn it with natural foliage found in the garden?
