Gender Neutral Gift Ideas For a New Baby

Gender neutral gifts are becoming more and more popular. Whether the parents are keeping the babies gender a surprise or that they want gender neutral choices so they can be passed onto future babies or that they simply prefer a neutral colour palette. Here are some of our top picks for that all important new baby gift:

Muslins & Swaddles:

This is my go-to present for a new baby. In the early months you need an endless supply for wiping/covering/shading/swaddling the baby and they remain useful for years to come (We still use our bigger muslins for picnic blankets!).

A pack of high quality muslins is the perfect place to start for a new baby basket or for a gift by themselves. Here are some of our favourites:

  • Avery Row have a lovely range of gender neutral shades including Riverbank, Grasslands and woodland Walk.

  • Rosa & Blue’s muslin squares come with some lovely themes such as Brown Bear, Giraffe and Ocean.

  • We also love the Wee Gallery muslin swaddles for combining beautiful monochrome style with functionality.

Towels & Washcloths:

Another super practical gift that will never stop being useful. A snuggly towel to use after bath time and some soft playful washcloths are a lovely gift for a new family, and there are so many gender neutral options available:

  • You can't mention washcloths without talking about our favourite Sylvester 3 packs from Liewood. They are super soft and come in a range of playful characters.

Books are a lovely gift for new babies, whether they are musical books, soft cloth books or monochrome flash cards. Here at Soren's House we have a lovely range to suit all your needs, here are some of our top picks:

  • Wee Gallery Art Cards For Baby are fab for propping up around the edge of the play mat or laying down for tummy time, all to help develop baby’s visual perception.
