Our latest gift collection, Always Love You, is proving very popular with new parents. A beautifully designed collection of keepsakes and soft toys perfect for newborns. How did panellist, Emma, get on with some of the range’s stunning pieces?
Everything apart from the My First Elephant is from the Always Love You collection. This is Mamas & Papas brand new gift range, and the idea is all about friendship and finding a little soulmate or first friend for your baby; how sweet!
First off, we have the Ellery Elephant Nightlight. It’s all ceramic, with a little switch underneath and it takes two triple-A batteries. The nightlight gives off just enough light to comfort your baby; without disturbing them. It has ‘Always Love You’ across the front and I love that the ‘Love You” is the part that glows. This would make a perfect gift for any young children and easily fits in with whatever decor they have in their room too.
Next, we have the Cuddle Book and Comforter. This comes as a set and is so soft! There’s a lovely story inside and it also comes with a little “if lost please return to” label, for you to fill in your child’s information. This is perfect to read to your baby or for them to explore on their own too. The Chickadee comforter is perfect for little hands and has a beautiful heart print all over.
We were also kindly sent the Always Love You All in One. It has “I will always love you” across the front, concealed poppers and the fancy collar makes it look a little more special to a standard all in one. This is a lovely gender neutral piece and a nice change from white; perfect for coming home from the hospital!
We also had a ‘Baby on Board’ Sign. The suction cup means it’s easy to move around if needed, it has a beautiful illustration on both sides and a little hanging star even, so something for your baby to look at too!
My favourite item is the Always Love You Book. I’m a sucker for a good book and this story is so lovely. It’s beautifully illustrated and makes the best bedtime story. I love the idea of reading this to Zac’s children one day as it’d make a really lovely hand me down.
The last piece from the Always Love You collection is the 1st Year Frame. This would make the best first birthday gift! There are twelve spaces for photos from each month of your baby’s first year, so you can see them change and grow. The grey frame makes it easy to fit in with any decor and again, it has the cutest illustrations and a lovely message printed in the middle.
Lastly, we had the My First Elephant toy; this is sooo soft! Zac has taken a particular liking to this and it’s now his bedtime pal. He rubs the comforter on his face when he’s tired and I love how the eyes are stitched in rather than glued on, so it’s safe for him.
Any of the items from the Always Love You collection and the wider gift range too, would also make a gorgeous bundle gift for someone special; whether that’s for a new baby, a first birthday, a christening, a baby shower or even just to buy for your own children.
Most of the items in the Mamas & Papas gift range can be personalised, to add that extra little touch. If you’re looking for a gift or just something special for your own baby, you’ll easily find something here. The only hard part will be choosing between all the beautiful options!
It seems our Always Love You range is popular with Emma, and we’re glad that baby Zac has found a new friend in his little elephant pal. As Emma says, it’s a great collection if you’re buying a gift for that new little one in your life – whether you’re a parent, grandparent or family friend, it’s a collection made up of perfect gift options.
