La Redoute Baby Knitted Cardigan (1 month-2 years)
This is such a gorgeous little cardigan. Lovely and cosy, and looks expensive. I particularly love the colour, and the handmade feel. And it’s a multi-tasker! It can be a cardigan or a chic little jacket (does that make it a ‘jardigan’?), depending on the weather. And is it just me, or could you see Harper Beckham wearing this?

Gap Chambray Bubble Romper (0-24 months)
I love any kind of all-in-one/playsuit/romper for baby girls. They always look super-cute, but are always super-practical too. They keep your little one ‘together’, so that they can crawl/run around without losing bits of their outfit as they go. And I always love anything in chambray because it feels/looks a bit more special than regular denim, but still has the same casual, laid-back feel. This one has poppers around the legs, so nappy changes are quick and easy. I love the oversized bows on the shoulders and the pretty embroidery at the neck. Just pop a Breton striped long sleeved t-shirt underneath if it feels a bit bare and breezy. It would look great with sandals, such as the John Lewis white cut-out ones or the Jo Jo Maman Bebe floral ones that I have featured in previous posts.

Vilac Red Piano
This is one of the best presents that the twins have even been given. It was a gift from their nanny, and it has been a huge hit. They love it because it’s fun to play and they are obsessed with music and all musical instruments (they can sit and ‘play’ it at the same time). I love it for all the same reasons, but also because it looks really cute and stylish, and actually sounds quite tuneful too. So it’s a win-win! It is made from lovely laquered wood, is very solid and sturdy, and has 18 keys. So if you’re looking for a beautiful, stylish present for a toddler that will appeal to kids and their parents, you’ve found it.

Tootsa MacGinty CND Sweatshirt (3 months-5 years)
Love this! I always love a CND/peace symbol and I am slightly obsessed with grey sweatshirts, so this was a no-brainer post for me. Such a cool item to have in any little boy’s wardrobe. Would look great with jeans or shorts. It’s also 100% cotton, which is always a big tick in my book too. Would make a really fab present.

Zara Crochet Dress (2-10 years)
I want this dress for me! How cute is it? The perfect Summer dress. I can definitely see both Tabitha and my gorgeous niece, Holly wearing this. I love the pretty crochet, simple shape, and the cool zip at the back. All you need is some simple flat sandals and some sun!

M&S 2 Pack Cotton Sun Hat (6 months-6 years)
I don’t know about you, but I am constantly losing my kids’ sun hats. I got through no less than three of the John Lewis striped one last Summer! It’s so annoying having to keep buying the same one over and over, so here is the solution – buy a pack of two. These are great because they are completely plain, and made from lovely cotton. They will go with everything, and the price is fantastic for two hats! I might still need to buy two (packs of two) though. Just in case.
