The Tot Guide to Luxury Baby Gifts
Still looking for the perfect baby gift?
We’ve got 11 luxury brands that have rethought and reimagined classics like the rocking horse, toy car and name necklace and made them out of all natural and non-toxic materials. This ensures your gift won’t be an eyesore in the house, and can be passed down from sibling to sibling,generation to generation.
Shopping for new moms and kids birthdays can be frustrating, especially when so many products on the market are made from cheap plastics and fall apart after one use. It’s rather annoying when a toy, that has massive benefits to your child’s physical and cognitive development, is designed in a thoughtless way that dampens your décor.
Luckily, the brands we love are blowing us away with their contemporary designs that clearly have longevity (and your style) in mind. By buying high quality items made from all natural materials such as solid woods, wools and organic cottons, you can rest assured knowing that your purchase is not only kind to the earth, but also safe for families to use.
Below we’ve put together a list of some of the best luxury gifts for babies, new moms, and toddlers that are useful, stylish and help with developmental skills.
