This blog post explores the topic of pregnancy and newborn babies. We acknowledge that this content may be difficult for some people and we encourage you to care for your well-being.

Celebrate September babies with a GiftRound new baby collection

It’s hard to imagine after the recent heatwave but September is just around the corner and its arrival will usher in a new season, the return to school, a refreshing chill in the air and the anticipation of lots of September babies!

In the UK, September is the most popular month to have a baby so for many it will mark the beginning of life as a family with a new bundle of joy!

The GiftRound team has lots of baby experience between us and we wanted to share some of our favourite baby gifts from GiftRound Store partner mamatot and how they can be used to bring a little ease to the arrival of a new baby.

No such thing as too many muslin cloths!

Muslin cloths are so versatile and mamatot’s stunning Avery Row cotton baby muslin squares are super soft, made from organic cotton and feature gorgeous prints. Perfect for wiping up any spills, doubling up as a bib or a blanket, or managing dribbles, they have an infinite number of uses - a new baby essential!

Make the most of multipurpose!

Although babies really need very little in terms of ‘equipment’ in the newborn stage, new parents frequently find their once carefully curated home is now overflowing with various baby items! Make the use of objects that have a multipurpose function such as the stunning Fabelab blanket from mamatot which doubles up as both a playmat for those first kicks and rolls and an excellent additional layer for when the nights get colder.

‘Are they teething?’

The newborn stage really does pass quickly and before long new parent’s find themselves asking this age-old question any time their little one is feeling a little restless. mamatot’s Mushie stacking rings are made from 100% non-toxic, BPA and phthalate free plastic - so they are super safe for little ones to mouth and have a little relief from teething. These beautiful stacking rings are also fun and engaging for your baby to look at and develop their motor skills while stacking and grasping the pieces.

Experience Economy Revolution

The GiftRound team is always on the look out for an inspiring podcast to challenge and broaden the way we think.

Listening to author James Wallman recently helped us deepen our understanding of the ‘Experience Economy Revolution’ which refers to the dominant trend of more money being spent on experiences than ever before.

Research from Barclaycard reveals over half of consumers would rather spend money on experiences rather than material items. GiftRound has witnessed significant growth in the demand from our customers to gift unique experiences to celebrate special life events of colleagues, friends and family members. We are proud of our partnership with SK Chase, specialists in the luxury hotel gift voucher market and the stunning experience opportunities we can offer to our customers.

Take a look at some of the incredible hotels featured in the GiftRound Store and give the gift of making a treasured memory to show someone you care.
