Baby Gift Ideas
Every new baby gets inundated with booties, mittens and blankets—more than they will ever be able to use! When it comes to buying unique gifts for new babies, it may seem like things are limited. A sustainable, living gift is an excellent way to mark the birth of a child.
For decades, parents have measured their child’s growth on doorframes, marking with a pencil how much the child has grown. We think this tradition would be even better if the child can actually watch something grow over time.
Our Welcome to the World gift pack contains everything you need to start a new tradition. Each pack contains a baby tree gift (chosen by you, in honour of the baby), a personalised pewter plaque and plinth, a tree protector tube and a greeting card.
A tree gift can open up many avenues for teaching children about science and botany in an engaging way. The bond between a kid and their tree is one that could last for their whole life.
A fruit-bearing tree can be used to teach a little one about where food comes from. Imagine the joy on their faces when they pick fruit from their very own tree for making into a dessert or snack. Alternatively, the sturdier oak tree can be used generations down the line and become the haven for a cool tree house.
The best thing about a tree gift is that it won’t be outgrown quickly; it will stay with the child all the way to adulthood. It can be repotted or replanted and can one day grace the garden of the child’s first owned home, bringing with it a lifetime of memories.
