A favourite newborn present when one of our little ones was born was a personalised baby dressing gown. Another was a string of bunting with our baby’s initials on it. In fact, in our view, there’s nothing that says “welcome to the world” better, so we were delighted to discover My 1st Years, a specialist in charming personalised presents for babies.
Since launching five years ago with a pair of personalised baby shoes, founders Jonny and Dan (yes, this is a dad business!) have expanded to build a range that now includes teddies and toys, blankets, clothing, items for the bedroom and bath time, as well as home accessories and nursery kit. Unlike so many other brands, the prices are affordable and we love the luxury gift box that comes free with every order for that extra special feel.

We have a weakness for these things, and all babies in them. This one is as soft and snuggly as can be with two large patch pockets and an adorable eared hood. Have the front embroidered with a little one’s name for a charming extra touch.
Dressing babies up in Christmas kit is hard for most parents to resist, and this Fairisle jumper super-soft version in white and grey makes a fantastic under-the-tree or stocking filler for Christmas. Buy it plain or have baby’s name embroidered on the front for free.
The rate at which children accumulate toys, books and “stuff” is quite remarkable, and, as a parent, you will want somewhere to store everything. This storage box is a lovely addition a nursery or bedroom and has the advantage of being completely collapsible. Don’t forget to personalise the lid.
A fitting shoe for those all important first steps, these adorable trainers can be personalised in your choice of font and colour for that charming extra touch.
This personalised wooden chair makes a wonderful Christening gift for a girl or boy. Put in their nursery or bedroom and before you know it, they’ll be sitting there reading books on their own. They grow up too quickly, these bubbas!
