Christmas Gift Ideas for a Newborn Baby on any Budget | MORI
Created by potrace 1.16, written by Peter Selinger 2001-2019
Christmas is just around the corner which means you’re probably going to start thinking about gift ideas for loved ones in the coming weeks. Purchasing suitable gifts is never easy and many dread the thought of going on the hunt for gifts for a newborn — especially if they’ve had no prior experience of baby shopping.
If you’re currently confused on what to buy for a baby, here are some great festive gift ideas we have on our very own website to suit any budget:
Gifts Under £20
Animal Family Book: Books are always a cute gift option for a baby. Although they may not be reading them just yet, it’s always good to think ahead to their future. Books are great for developing a baby’s cognitive skills and creating a bond between the parent and the baby. We worked with Design university, Central Saint Martins, on developing this specialised baby book, entitled the ‘Animal Family Book’.
Milk Bib Set: Purchasing a set of bibs would be a convenient gift option for when the baby starts to consume foods other than milk. Why not choose a design that’s printed with fun graphics and prints? The Dotty Bib Set is made from pure cotton to ensure their comfort and absorbs spillages instantly to prevent any mess.
Baby Booties: A baby can never have enough socks and booties to keep their little tootsies warm in the biting chill of the winter months. It’s extremely easy for pairs to become separated and go missing, so purchasing these must-have accessories will ensure the baby’s essentials drawer is topped up. Made from comfortable cotton and bamboo fabric to keep the warmth in, our very own Baby Booties are an adorable choice.
Gifts £50 — £70
Personalised gifts: We offer a wide selection of adorable personalised gifts which can be embroidered with the baby’s name. One of the cutest personalised gift ideas for this season would be the Clever Sleeping Bag. Coming in a range of patterns, they are made from soft organic cotton and have been proven to be one of the safest comforters for the baby to sleep soundly as a replacement for a blanket.
Festive Sleep Set: Get the little one in your life really into the Christmas spirit with the Festive Sleep Set. Crafted from a blend of organic cotton and bamboo, this set features a cute printed sleepsuit, a bear hat complete with ears and a blanket showcasing an all-over reindeer print. What an adorable stocking filler!
Gifts Over £100
MORI Starter Set: Any new mum would be thankful for the MORI Starter Set. If you’re looking to spend a little more on a baby gift; this would be a smart choice. Branded as the ‘peace of mind in a box’, this set offers 12 of the most loved essentials to ensure the newborn has the best start to life. All the products are made from a blend of soft cotton and bamboo for supreme comfort. What’s more, if you choose to purchase this set, you’re saving £100 than if you were to purchase each item individually!
The Supreme Set: If you don’t really have a strict budget and are looking to purchase a gift that is sure to wow – the Supreme Set will certainly do the trick. The set contains every single essential your baby is going to need in their early life. Featuring 32 cotton and bamboo blended garments, the little one will be covered for day-to-day wear, night time and bath time. Whether you’re looking to treat your very own baby or to gift a very special newborn close to you, this set is the perfect Christmas gift.

Christmas gifts: interesting ideas
Popular wisdom says: prepare a sleigh in summer and a cart in winter. If you want to celebrate Christmas and New Year without stress and avoid exorbitant spending, you need to start thinking about gifts for your loved ones and family as early as October.
Because stress and haste are not the best advisers in money matters. In addition, from a purely mathematical point of view, it is much more profitable to spread the upcoming spending on Christmas gifts over three months — October, November and December, so as not to end up in a financial hole, buying everything you need in December, when you will already have to wait for additional expenses for festive table and entertainment.
Buying gifts in advance also has practical aspects — as a rule, it is in October that shopping centers, online stores and publishers offer good discounts. In turn, if you decide to order Christmas gifts in one of the foreign online stores, for example, at amazon.com or aliexpress.com , then the free delivery time to the nearest post office is usually two months. That is how much time is left to receive the package before Christmas.
Gifts on order
In order to have time to receive them before Christmas, you can still order individual gifts from the best Latvian and foreign craftsmen. In addition, you are mistaken if you think that local craftsmen offer only wooden handicrafts or knitted woolen socks. In addition to them, there are exquisite jewelry, and stylish clothes, and a variety of accessories. See for yourself: https://www.facebook.com/groups/LatvijasMeistari/

Family calendar or photo book
In the digital age, few people print photos, preferring to store them on modern media. But sometimes you really want to look through the good old photo album, look at the original photo book or hang a personalized calendar on the wall. Especially older people and children will be delighted with such gifts. But not only! For example, picturehappy.lv until October 31 offers a 30% discount on all wall calendars and a 20% discount on photo books.
Printed magazines are becoming more and more exclusive, but that’s exactly what a real gift should be. In October, the subscription for the next year opens, and until about October 16-20, the largest Latvian publishing houses usually hold the so-called “happy weeks”, offering a subscription to almost all magazines at the best price.
Traveling around Latvia
Horse-drawn carriage rides, meeting with huskies or a safari in a deer park — all this is available here in Latvia. On collective shopping portals perkamkopa.lv, gudriem. lv, kolosali.lv and others, you can find many interesting and profitable offers for active recreation, which can be simply and conveniently issued in the form of a gift card. Just pay attention to the dates on which this gift can be used. In addition, we are not always talking about a purchased gift card. Grandma, girlfriend, kids, and most likely your significant other won’t mind if you give them a hand-drawn postcard, like «Weekend trip to Kuldiga» or «Trains to the go-kart track».
Theater subscriptions and gift cards for theater lovers are still available. In addition, as it turns out, there is not only the Night Market, but also the Night Ticket Office, which is open from 24.00 to 06.00 and where you can buy tickets for all the performances of the Dailes Theater on the website www.bilesuparadize.lv with a 20% discount.
At the box office Biļešu paradīze you can also buy tickets and season tickets for the performances of the Latvian National Theatre, while you can find tickets for the performances of the New Riga Theater at biletes. jrt.lv .
Discounts in stores
In October, various promotions with decent discounts and «hot» prices are also held in bookstores. It is not always worth trying to keep up with fashion and buying a book that was published just yesterday as a gift. An equally valuable gift will be a book by some Latvian or foreign author, published, for example, last year. In addition, now it, most likely, can already be bought at a discount.
Large seasonal sales in clothing and household goods stores will also start very soon. Here, too, you can find some kind of warm and pleasant gift, for example, a cozy scarf, a blanket or a thermos mug.
It is doubly pleasant to receive a handmade gift. There are plenty of DIY gifts out there, and many of them aren’t that hard — hand-painted mugs, hand-made jewelry, accessories, soaps, photo frames, and more. Usually such gifts require more time, but they are also cheaper. If you are planning to please your family and friends with handmade gifts, it’s time to start acting! And ideas can be gleaned at pinterest.com keywords: home made presents and home made gifts .

The first card for a child
when they write letters to Santa Claus, and he knows that gifts are actually brought by mom and dad, then perhaps it is time to give him the first payment card. Put a small amount of money on it and let the child choose his own gift. This will be a great gift to his self-consciousness!
An older child will also evaluate a savings account by the age of majority (savings for the child’s future). Your child will be warmed by the idea that he has his own savings account, in which money is being accumulated for some large purchase.

Peeking into Santa’s bag
Children are like children, but their gifts are different: a little American will get an expensive toy, and a Mexican will get a papier-mâché piñata to beat with a bat. What else is given to children in different countries and why — we tell in this material and get inspired by the holiday.

In the US, it is customary to give expensive gifts, as family gatherings are rare. Christmas is the most important occasion for Americans to gather in one place and give each other something valuable and practical.
Every gift in the US is accompanied by a purchase receipt, but not to brag about the value, but so that the gift can be exchanged or returned to the store — suddenly it won’t work. Such a tradition differs from the Russian one — in our country it is considered bad form to show the price. If you have ever washed the glue from the price tag or painted over it with a black marker, you definitely understand what it is about.

The opposite is true here: the British are not used to spending large sums on Christmas gifts — instead they buy inexpensive souvenirs.
In some families, gifts are distributed by lot right at the celebration. At the same time, it is not so much the price of the gift that is important, but the attention to the person. Therefore, children mainly receive key rings, figurines, tea cups, toys and all kinds of accessories for Christmas.
In Mexico they love the New Year as much as in Russia: for nine days everyone forgets about work and school and organizes folk festivals. Most often, children are given Piñata is a large Mexican papier-mâché toy that resembles an animal, a star, or a simple geometric figure. Inside the gift is a surprise in the form of sweets, cookies or crackers. The child is blindfolded and blindly hits a piñata suspended above the floor with a bat. This toy symbolizes the sins that can be got rid of only by breaking it.
Despite the absence of snow and other usual Christmas and New Year attributes, Indians are happy to celebrate the New Year in their own way: with lush and long garlands of flowers, paper lanterns in houses and on the streets, generous distribution of sweets to friends and unfamiliar, presenting small homemade gifts: talismans of the year, postcards, caskets and other pleasant little things.
«Akhali Tseli» — New Year in Georgian — an incredible variety of national traditions. This is the Georgian Santa Claus — Tovlis Babua, the Georgian New Year tree — chichilaki, as well as a symbolic step through the threshold of your Mekvle house — a person who promises you happiness in the new year, and, of course, a rich Georgian New Year’s table. The holiday is not complete without dancing and wine, which flows like a river and is drunk from a wide variety of glasses, horns and earthenware vessels. But the most sacred thing is the singing on New Year’s Eve «Mravalzhamier» — a traditional Georgian drinking song, which is performed in polyphony.
Tovlis Babua (“Snow Grandfather”) brings gifts to children in a large bag decorated with bells, which is always full of churchkhela, gozinaki, sweets and various dried fruits. The Georgian Santa Claus does not have a granddaughter.
Traditional Christmas tree — chichilaki — a small snow-white tree made of hazel branches, decorated with sweets and berries. After the holidays, the tree is burned and the ashes are scattered to the wind to get rid of the troubles and hardships of the past year.
At midnight, church bells and chiming clocks announce the arrival of the New Year. Celebrations on the streets start as early as 9 pm, so that even the youngest children can enjoy the fireworks and the atmosphere of magic before their parents send them to bed.
In Australia, there is a Santa who appears in a very original way: on a surfboard, dressed in a bathing suit, but with a beard and in a hat that is familiar to everyone. He has a colleague named Sveg Men — a funny little man who moves in a chariot, accompanied by a Dingo dog. It is customary for both to leave sweets and milk for the night.
Australians give their loved ones what they see fit, and a receipt is usually attached to the gift so that the person can return the gift to the store if they do not like it.
