When it comes to babies, we want them to have the very best. It is important for their little, growing bodies to have natural and organic products. Babies are more sensitive to chemicals and toxins than adults are.
New parents need all the help they can get, they are busy adjusting to life with a new baby. What a perfect time to buy them an all natural, organic baby gift.
I have listed some beautiful and practical organic baby gifts to help you in sorting through the hundreds of available options. I have linked the products to Amazon, because they are a trusted shopping source.
I have chosen gifts that every mother needs, regardless of her parenting style. These gifts are sure to be enjoyed and cherished.
I have looked at dozens of different products in each of the following categories and I have only chosen products I would buy myself.
To get on my list, the product:
- is high-quality
- has lots of positive reviews
- is all natural
- is something that every new mother needs
I tried to stay away from products made in China (hard to get away from, so some of them are made in China, but I went with the companies that have strict regulations to make sure the products are well made.)
Now Let’s Get to the Gift Ideas
The Ultimate Natural Gift
A lambskin has got to be one of the most luxurious and truly useful gifts you can get a baby. They are soooo plush and comfortable. My sister-in-law got one as a gift with her son and she absolutely loved it. She used it all the time, in the stroller and in the house.
I would have been so happy to receive this as a gift, because they such a luxury. They can be used for years and enjoyed by everyone. When your kids are older, you can use it on a chair as a nice place to sit.
I Recommend: Dessert Breeze Lambskin
All Natural Organic Skin Care Gifts
Skin care is important for babies. Many babies will experience diaper rash, cradle cap, or dry skin. Baby massage is popular. It is imperative that we only put natural products on our babies skin, as their growing bodies are so sensitive to toxic chemicals.
A good diaper cream is an essential item for a new baby. At some point, even the most diligent mothers will have to deal with a diaper rash. This also works as a preventative and can help soothe dry skin on the bottom.
When my children were babies, I always made sure I had diaper cream on hand, I didn’t have to use it much, but when I needed it, it was there. I didn’t have to do to the store and buy some.
I Recommend: Earth Mama Angel Baby Bottom Balm
I love this particular diaper cream because it is all natural, and can be used with cloth diapers. It has almost 1000 reviews on Amazon.
Baby Body Oil
I loved giving my son massages, I even took him to a baby massage class. He enjoyed the attention and I enjoyed the social time. A good body oil makes massage so much easier, and it makes a baby’s already soft skin even softer.
I Recommend: Earth Mama Angel Baby, Baby Oil
I am recommending another Earth Mama Angel Baby product (because they make some of the best organic baby skin care products).
A body oil is great for after a bath, and this unscented body oil is great for all babies, even those with eczema or extra sensitive skin. This oil is even safe enough to be used on babies in the Neonatal Intensive Care Unit.
All Natural Organic Fabric Gifts
I love to wear cotton, and I love to put my babies in cotton. I am not a fan of synthetic fabric on my skin, I find it scratchy and sweaty. Cotton, bamboo and hemp are the way to go, there is nothing better than what nature provides.
Did you know that cotton is one of the most pesticide-sprayed crops? Growing cotton is unfortunately a terribly polluting industry. This is why organic cotton, hemp, or bamboo are such a good investments, they are better for the planet and better for baby’s skin.
A practical gift every mother needs. A hooded towel is such a convenient way to dry a baby off after a bath. Organic cotton makes a bath towel so soft and cozy. The nice thing about a bath towel, is that the baby will not grow out of it as quickly as something like a sleeper or onesie.
I Recommend: Brooklyn Bamboo Baby Hooded Towel
A soft, thick and luxurious hooded towel made of 100% Bamboo. Bamboo is softer, more absorbent, and more durable than cotton.
Blankets are always a nice gift, as babies are often being wrapped up and carried around. When made with organic and natural fabric, a baby blanket can be a warm and cozy Eco-friendly gift.
There are a couple types of blankets:
- receiving blankets or swaddling blankets are thin, breathable blankets that are made to wrap baby up in a swaddle position.
- heavier blankets that are made for keeping baby warm and snug.
I Recommend: Kidolis Organic Muslin Swaddle Blanket
Muslin swaddle blankets are such a treat to have, they are thin and breathable, while being cozy and soft. I loved swaddling my baby’s, I found that they slept so much better when their little arms were held in place (less flailing around and accidentally whacking themselves in the face.)
I Recommend: Aden + Anais Organic Dream Blanket
Aden + Anais make high-quality and beautiful baby blankets. I love their dream blankets because they are made with 4 layers of organic cotton, they get softer after every wash, and they are large (no tiny fleece blankets here). This blanket would make such a lovely gift for a new baby.
All Natural Organic Toy Gifts
Babies will eventually put everything in to their mouths, so why would we want to give them plastic and painted toys? A natural wooden toy is much safer for a baby to chew on.
My children all had some natural toys and they loved them. I felt good knowing that they weren’t chewing on plastic all the time. Good-quality natural toys often last a long time, so they can be handed down to the next child.
A wooden teether is a practical for a baby. Chewing and sucking on something natural is so much better than slobbering on a piece of plastic (yuck). A Teether is a perfect gift for a newborn – 4 months.
I Recommend: Maple Teether Made in Vermont
This teether is made with 100 % maple wood shaped into a ring that is easy for baby to grasp and hold. This teether is made in the USA.
My kids loved to chew on their wooden teethers, it really helps them with their sore gums. I had bought my son Sophie Giraffe rubber teether, but he liked his wooden ring better.
For older babies, a teething ring is not going to be very exciting. A stacking toy is always a hit for boys and girls, plus they can chew on the rings when they need relief from their incoming teeth.
I Recommend: Plan Toys Stacking Tree
This toy says it is not for children under 3, as it has small parts, but I really do not see any small parts on this toy. My babies played with stacking toys when they were under 1 year and I had no problems with choking.
Babies under a year will not really stack this toy, they will more just chew on it, but they will grow into the toy and will eventually have fun stacking it.
I love Plan Toys, they make high quality and sustainable toys for children. I have a few of their toys, and they have lasted a long time.
Plan Toys uses wood from rubber trees that are no longer producing latex, making them a sustainable and Eco-friendly company.
Natural and organic gifts will be cherished by parents and baby’s alike. There is just something so wonderful about a natural item, I find them to be so much more meaningful than plastic, they have life in them, they are real, and we can sense that.
Yours In Beauty,
