It shouldn’t just be the children that have all the fun at Christmas! We think all those hardworking parents deserve a little festive treat too. Whilst we have been working hard going on the hunt for all those perfect present for little ones, we have also been keeping an eye out for gifts for parents too.

Here are we have picked some of our favourite parent products, and also those essentials we just simply couldn't live without which make the perfect gift for every parent.

Muslin Squares

As well as chocolate, musy’s are a parents best friend. They are so useful for a long list of daily tasks that they are always at the top of our gift list to those special parents we know. Trust us, they will love this useful gift idea. We have so many beautiful designs of muslin squares made from super soft sustainable materials for you to pick from.

CuddleDry Apron Towel

This Cuddledry Apron Towel is the perfectly practical gift that every parent didn’t know they even needed until they have it and it completely transforms bath time. This clever innovative design will make bath time a breeze and so much more enjoyable for both parent and baby. It simply attaches around the parent’s neck allowing both their hands free to scoop the little one out of the bath.

Changing Bag

Every parent needs a clever changing bag that is going to fit everything they need, plus all the “just in case” bits too. We love a changing bag that is super practical with lots of compartments and loads of space, but that also looks stylish too. That is why we always recommend Jem + Bea, their bags are fashionable but also functional. Plus, they have great unisex styles to tick both boxes and a sustainable range made from recycled materials. An absolute Christmas gift winner in our books.

Baby Carrier

Give that hardworking parent in your life a little helping hand by gifting them a baby carrier. We love baby wearing as it has so many benefits to both parent and baby, but it also helps parents go about their day with their hands free whilst keeping their little one close. Ergobaby are great for those parents who you think would prefer a more structured buckle carrier, plus they have so many designs and colours you can find the perfect one for your loved ones.

We also love gifting our friends the FreeRider baby wraps. Their sustainable and super soft wraps are made from 100% Tencel from the pulp of the Eucalyptus tree. Tencel fibres are strong yet stretchy, warm yet breathable and lightweight yet exceptionally strong, making it the perfect fabric for a baby carrier. Trust us, they will love this one.

Mama shack

Who say’s parent essentials have to be boring? Mama Shack has put a stylish twist on those bits that parents use everyday so they can use them with pride. They do everything from changing mats, muslins and splash mats. But we have a little soft spot for their changing bag pouches and we think they make such a great little gift. They’re perfect for keeping all those smaller bit and bobs in one place either at home or in their changing bag. We can’t think of anyone who wouldn’t full in love with the gorgeous prints and love using their stylish pouch.
