I just received a lovely email from my friend in Canada who had a much longed for baby girl on Thursday. My friend is 40 and had trouble conceiving and I am just so happy for her. She sent me a couple of pictures of the baby at one day old and she is just adorable.
What can I send - and which are good websites for baby presents ? As I have two boys I just love buying pink stuff
Find a Canadian site if you can as the postage is less. I did this for a friend in NZ and postage was, in fact, free. I send a fleece blanket with a kiwi on it - friends were English and due to come home to England soon after the baby was born.
- it's like a babygro but it has no legs which makes it great for changing the baby in the middle of the night when you are too exhausted to fiddle with poppers and you don't want to wake the baby up too much.
I find Canadian baby clothes horrid. I think they have H+M there now, and they have Gap. They don't have Monsoon (who do lovely kids clothes), I don't think they have Benetton for kids, and of course they don't have Asda/Tesco. I think Mango do good kids clothes, although I've not tried them.
Alternatively, you can buy toys at amazon, I think, or toys'r'us, online.
I would send something from the White Company London. I received the baby bath set from a friend when my son was born and it made me very happy. No one else had thought of that and I needed it. The products have a fab smell/fragnance and the packaging is posh.
hope it helps.
