The perfect baby gift: bamboo dishes, baby bowls & more.
The search for the ideal gift for a baby usually brings great joy - but also great stress! The smaller the gifted child is, the greater the uncertainty. Criteria such as individuality, sustainability, meaningfulness and longevity play a huge role, especially when it comes to gifts for the very youngest. Luckily, there's an enormous supply of affordable, high-quality baby and toddler gifts that meet these needs. From the first book to the baby plate made of natural bamboo, there is something suitable for everyone. In the following article by Kleiner Fuchs you will find out what is important when choosing the ideal gift for babies and toddlers up to the age of two.
Original gifts for babies & toddlers
Birth, baptism, first birthday, Christmas, Easter, name day and so on: From January to December there are a multitude of gift occasions, especially in the first years of a child's life. And baby gifts, unlike gifts for older children or adults, are a real tough nut to crack. After all, the person receiving the gift cannot formulate any wishes themselves. As a rule, babies are happy and content without any presents. Nevertheless, as donors, we want to give parents and children a little joy. Our demands on gifts for babies and toddlers are therefore high. Ideally, it should be something that the gifted baby and their parents will enjoy for a long time. Regardless of the occasion, children under 24 months may receive the following types of gifts:
- Gifts with a high play value that will be fun for the child receiving the gift for a long time
- Gifts with practical uses that parents benefit from in everyday life
- High quality and durable gifts that will not be replaced immediately
- Unusual gifts that bring a bit of variety to the diaper monotony
A good baby or toddler gift ideally combines several of these characteristics. No matter which gift you choose: Ultimately, of course, it's all about the gesture. As long as it comes from the heart, you will make the gifted child - or his parents - really happy.
Baby plates & baby bowls made from natural bamboo
The perfect gift must therefore be sustainable, practical, educationally valuable and as unusual as possible. In no way should it be mass-produced. Our tip for every occasion: crockery for babies and toddlers with original motifs. It has a high practical use and creates a relaxed atmosphere at the kitchen table. In this way, the family is optimally prepared for their first experiences with complementary food. In addition, crockery is needed and used for a long time. However, it is not given away every day. Whether you decide on a baby plate, a children's bowl or another piece of tableware - you will definitely hit the bull's eye with your gift.
In the past, crockery for toddlers and babies was mostly made of plastic. Many parents are now attaching more importance to the aspects of sustainability and environmental friendliness. That is why they are increasingly turning to baby dishes made from natural bamboo. This can be cleaned just as easily and is just as "unbreakable" as plastic dishes. However, bamboo bowls and bamboo plates do not contain BPA or formaldehyde. Bamboo children's bowls have another advantage over plastic plates and bowls: the pretty motifs don't fade when washed, but remain intact.
Baby gifts for every occasion
The best thing about smart baby dishes is that they are actually suitable for every occasion. With a children's plate or a baby bowl you are guaranteed to be right. Babies usually discover their interest in solid foods at an early age. They eat together with the family at the kitchen table from about the ninth month of life. And they like to do that with their own little children's plate.
The absolute insider tip from Kleiner Fuchs: Give children's crockery as a gift even if it is perhaps not even needed! Many parents introduce their children to complementary foods at a very early age. And most babies are allowed to sit at the family table as soon as they sit up. In fact, it's never too early to give away baby dishes. It is even suitable as a birthday gift. The parents of many newborns hardly expect how soon they will need the first children's bowl. For this reason, most families often do not have their own tableware sets for the little ones at this time. With your gift you ensure that the parents will be prepared accordingly. Of course, older children are also happy to have their own crockery. Many parents use the extravagant children's plates and boards regularly, even after their offspring have been two years old. After all, fruit, vegetables and other foods can be arranged in an appealing and creative way.
