When I was pregnant with Mia, my Mum got together a basket of goodies for me I think she started collecting when I was 12 weeks. Baby grows, muslins, cream, baby wipes, baby nail scissors were all very helpful and well used. Mia’s Nonna also put together a basket for her with baby towels, clothes and baby bed linen. The baskets are still very useful 16 years on for storage! My Sister-in-Law, Auntie Wanna, gave us a baby book when I was pregnant with Rosie which in which I have all her scan photos in, keepsakes and have written down all her ‘firsts’ in.
The Lion and The Bear shop has a beautiful new store in Lion & Lamb Yard, Farnham. Stocking a large range of baby clothes, toys and essentials. Steph says ” All our products are wrapped beautifully, free of charge with or without a gift box and we can also add a handwritten beautiful card if you’d like us to. “
