Best place for unisex baby clothes?

I have been browsing the local shops in the smallish town where I live, literally everything is pink blue or white!!

Where can I find new baby clothes, that are not pink or blue and will be nice for either sex? I'm just into the second trimester but want to buy a couple of things.

Next have lovely unisex babygrows and some vests.

Mothercare has some nice things.

Pumpkin Patch (online only) has some nice stuff in brighter colours.

Sainsburys have a small amount of white and grey babygrows and vests.

GAP has some nice but expensive things.

The White Company has plain but expensive items.

Ha I read that as 'un-sexy'!

I second next

Boots do some lovely ones

Thanks, I think I need to venture further afield. Have looked in Next, Boots, M & S, debenhams, Sainsbury.....nothing much in any of them, possibly because they are small branches.

H&M have some good stuff that's not all pink/blue. have a look online, you can order online if you're not near a shop. smile

Tbh I found the best was online.

What I did what buy all plain white babygrows ( can then wash all together easily and cheap), then spend more on nice cardigans/ hats/ booties/ blankets.

- lana bambini
- polarn o pyret ( some stuff)

I like H&M best for unisex - lots of bright colours. John Lewis also have nice sets of 3 sleepsuits, many of which are in green, yellow, orange etc. I do get sick of just blue blue blue for DS.

Yeah second Boots and H&M.

Slightly more expensive but Jojomaman have some lovely unisex baby clothes. Very good quality (which matters if you want it to do two or more babies!)

Not cheap but Boden have lovely stuff

Polarn O. Pyret and Vertbaudet are two websites I found some good unisex things on, and I've also bought from Next and H&M as people have suggested above. Tesco too. I'm 'team yellow' and baby's wardrobe includes green, orange, grey, white, and bright patterns - I've not found it too tricky to buy an interesting range of unisex stuff. Having said that, I've bought some blue stuff (mostly navy blue rather than baby blue) as I'm happy putting a girl in some blue. But I've avoided pink smile

Jojo Maman Bebe have lovely unisex stuff. We didn't find out the sex of our second child so I bought lots of unisex stuff from there.

I second Next. Ordered some sweet star print babygros on there last week and am really happy with them.
I also like a PP's idea of buying cheap plain white babygros (I think babies look really sweet in just white + makes washing easier) and then spendig a bit more on cardigans/booties/hats. La coqueta has some lovey bonnets especially, in the sale at the moment.

Lots in Asda if you have a bigger Asda near you. Most unisex things I've seen are white or similar but you could just get the basics and then see what happens after.

h and m have some lovely grows on three for two. some that they currently have are red, navy, white, mustard, black, asortment of stripes, dark purple with stars, they also have two packs of sleepers in tiger print and some with stripes as well abd plain white and a few others. also have sets the a grow with an animal on and matching trousers.

Boots
Next

John Lewis

All online, never much instore.

I have some lovely sleepsuits with little ducks and one with elephants on from JoJo £16 each, I found them on ebay for £2. They still look brand new and wash fantastically.

Fabulous thank you!! I am making a note and will look online. I really like the idea of browsing in store but seems unlikely where i am.

I had boy girl twins, so ALL my baby stuff was unisex until they got a bit older. I got nearly all of it from Next, Mothercare and H&M. The Mothercare stuff was dreadful quality though (poppers not lining up with each other etc) but I was very, very pleased with the Next stuff.

Rhoda77 Sun 25-Jan-15 15:36:08

John Lewis have lots of items in other colours. I too despair of all girls clothes being in pink. Message to the high street from me - some imagination please!

Artandco Sun 25-Jan-15 17:57:15

Also I would recommend buying unisex for certain items as they grow also, even if you want girly/ boyish for most. The amount of people I know with a girl first bought everything pink, then 18 months later had a boy. Then continued buying pink everything so can pass little down.

Things like Wellington boots, snowsuit, winter coat, raincoat, pjamas etc can be expensive to replace in different colour/ style if still good quality. So navy/ yellow/ red are much better choices that pink glitter or dinosaur prints.
