Baby Bundle

Two weeks ago I had the pleasure of visiting a beautiful one-day-old baby in hospital. She was just gorgeous and tiny and I brought some lovely gifts along that I think the mum really liked. It is not always easy to find the right gift and there is nothing worse than giving a present that the new parents don’t like or need. Of course they still appreciate the thought behind but it is much nicer to be able to give something unique they will love. Australian mum Anna felt the same way so she decided to help you with your gift shopping by opening her own little online store called Baby Bundle.

In store you’ll find a great selection of gifts for babies and mums, handpicked by Anna herself. Pick one item, a premade gift set or even have Baby Bundle put together a custom made bundle to suit your budget. Orders are delivered within 48 hours of receiving payment and they can be sent directly to the lucky receiver to make it easy (even to the hospital). I spotted some very cute new arrivals in store like the cheeky Little Owl Pillow Pal (24.95), he has a twin sister too.

If you like the very hip owl trend you will probably love this sweet carry case gift set by Annabel Trends ($39.95), a lovely reusable carry case filled with a gorgeous owl-print t-shirt and two pairs of matching owl socks. Designed for babies aged 6-12 months it will last a little longer than the tiny newborn clothes they grown out of so quickly. The carry case will make a lovely storage box for in the baby room.

Of course it is not just about owls at Baby Bundle, you can choose from all kinds of products that will come in handy with a new baby from skin care products to clothing, toys to baby shoes, baby wraps to feeding pillows, even nappy bags and mummy journals. With prices starting at just $7.99 up to $250 there is a perfect gift or gift bundle for every budget. All purchases include free gift wrapping and a gift card, gift shopping doesn’t get much easier than this.
