Gifts for newborns: how to choose them?

When it comes to choosing the perfect gift for a newborn, there are several crucial aspects to consider to make sure the gift is as much appreciated as useful, especially when it comes to bedding and other textile accessories. Here are some important elements to consider:

  • quality of materials: the skin of newborns is extremely sensitive. Materials such as cotton or other natural fibers are hypoallergenic and gentle on the baby's skin, so they are most suitable for newborns. This does not only apply to fabrics: in general, try to choose articles designed specifically for children, made of materials free of BPA and other toxic substances;
  • security: make sure that the gift complies with all safety regulations. This also means reading labels and checking that products comply with European or international safety regulations and that they do not contain potentially dangerous elements, such as decorations or easily detachable applications;
  • ​​utility: a gift should be practical and functional as well as aesthetically pleasing. It is therefore not only about buying something that can be used immediately, but also to consider the actual possibility of use and duration;
  • breathability: for bed linen, and in general for all textile products designed for newborns, the breathability of materials is essential to ensure a good level of comfort and avoid possible irritation or redness of the skin. Also in this case the fabrics in 100% cotton are the most recommended because they ensure a good circulation of the air, keeping the skin of children fresh and dry;
  • easy washing: both for bed linen and accessories, such as bibs and towels, it is also important to consider the ease of washing. Try to opt for materials that can be easily washed in the washing machine and that ensure good resistance to frequent washing;
  • design and aesthetics: practicality and functionality are very important to choose the gift for a newborn, but also the aesthetic appearance has its weight. A nice design and funny and colorful prints on the bed linen can add a touch of elegance and originality to the bedroom of children;
  • compatibility with other items: if parents have already purchased some specific items, such as a certain type of cot, crib or stroller, choose bed linen and accessories that perfectly fit the baby's crib or cot;
  • coordinated sets: a coordinated bed linen set, which includes sheets, pillowcases and covers can not only simplify the life of parents, but also add a touch of elegance and extra personality to the baby's bedroom.
