Best New Baby Present – aden & anais Swaddles

Baby showers may be a new phenomenon for the UK, but they’ve become a must-do amongst my best friends, and I’ve known girls to compete to throw the best event. I’m a huge fan – they’re a fantastic way to catch up with all your girlfriends before you disappear into the baby bubble for a few months, plus you get presents and cake – sooooooo much better than hen nights! But baby shower gifting can get quite competitive, as the expectant mother usually opens her presents in front of everyone, to much oohs and aahs. Luckily I’ve discovered the perfect buy – aden and anais Swaddles. Not only are they incredibly useful, they’ve got the royal seal of approval, after Prince George was spotted leaving hospital wrapped in his little bird swaddle. I use mine for everything – as a cosy cover-up {they fold down to a tiny portable roll}, mopping up dribble, and to shield Ivo from the sun on a recent holiday. The patterns are all adorable, and they have a real luxury feel, partly because they’re so huge! My favourite is the Night Sky four-pack, but if your budget’s a bit tighter, they come in pairs, and pretty singles as well.
