We’re helping cut the hours of internet scrolling and high street shopping to find the perfect gift for the littlest eco-warriors in your life. Our handy roundup has organic baby gifts (and a few to help out new parents too!) for whatever the occasion.
Babies famously have sensitive and delicate skin. Skin that can be easily irritated by chemicals such as the residues of pesticides that may be lurking in non-organic products. As organic materials are grown without the use of pesticides and insecticides, there is far less chance of chemical residue in organic products.
This lack of chemicals helps to protect babies’ skin and avoid exposure to chemicals that could have an adverse impact on a child’s overall health.

However, there are some products that need to be bought for each new arrival. Items such as nappies, nappy rash cream, as well as clothing such as socks (which always seem to go missing) are some of the things that every parent will appreciate.
What can be gifted to a newborn?
As seen in our handy guide, there are lots of gorgeous gifts out there for newborns. Blankets and swaddles, clothing, carriers and soft rattles all make great newborn gifts.
When shopping for a newborn baby, be sure to avoid toys and other items with small parts such as buttons that may come off and cause a choking hazard. Also, avoid products that have been exposed to harsh chemicals that may irritate young skin. Oeko-Tex labelled products have no unsafe chemicals in them.
With the baby market being such a huge sector, supporting sustainable products and brands is essential. By buying organic baby gifts for UK tiny tots, you are not only giving an adorable gift that is safer for little ones, you are supporting a more eco-friendly tomorrow.
