Unique and Gorgeous Gifts to Welcome a Newborn


Finding unique gifts for newborns can be challenging. While most parents can never have enough of the basics like swaddles, onesies and nappies, to help you find something unique, we’ve put together a list of gorgeous baby gifts from Metro Baby.

Stacking Ring Tower

Stacking toys play an important role in helping develop both the body and the brain of a newborn starting around six months. Designed and manufactured in Denmark, the stacking ring tower from the Mushie Danish Hygge collection helps babies learn basic skills from stacking that create a foundation for more complex tasks like using an instrument. The stacking ring tower is made from 100% non-toxic BPA, making it safe for babies to put in their mouth as they become curious about the world. The stacking ring set is also a whimsical design with sophisticated colours making for a stylish addition to the home.

Classic Stuffed Teddy

The Miffy Plush, created by Dutch artist Dick Bruna in 1955, is an iconic bunny character with her instantly recognisable minimalist features. Bruna would tell his son bedtime stories about a little white bunny that scampered around the garden of their holiday home. Miffy Plush, the toy teddy, is now known by children worldwide and instils a sense of safety as she has a positive attitude and is always up for new adventures. A classic toy that children will love for years, this baby-soft toy is made from 100% recycled PET bottles and is the perfect gift for newborns.


The swaddle is an everyday essential for newborns and babies. Parents can use swaddles as a change mat, a light blanket, a privacy blanket for breastfeeding, swaddling and tummy time. Metro Baby has an extensive collection of swaddles, including the Peacock Rattle and Light Swaddle gift box made from 100% organic cotton by Cam Cam Copenhagen or the limited edition Carousel Swaddle by Atelier Choux. The carousel swaddle is 100% organic cotton and printed using baby-safe water-based ink.

Activity Mat

Activity mats are great for tummy time and offer various stimuli for your baby. The Done by Deer activity mat is a modern Scandinavian design with fun and playful features for babies. With two activity bars and five toys, each can be moved and provides a simple yet elegant playmat that keeps little ones entertained. Each toy can also be removed and attached to a pram or car seat.

Night Light

The Winston night light by Liewood lets young children feel safe during the night with its friendly animal shape. The night light is rechargeable and offers a modern design that can remain a piece of decor in the bedroom as children grow older.

Baby plate, spoon and fork set

The adorable Baby Bjorn baby plate, spoon and fork set is designed for little hands, making self-feeding easier for babies. The plate design makes it easy for babies to scoop food onto cutlery, and the utensils have handles that make it easy to hold. The set is sturdy, making it hard to tip over, and the fork and spook won’t slide down into the plate. The entire set is easy to clear, dishwasher safe and is made with BPA-free plastic, making for easy cleanup and safe for babies to enjoy every meal.

Welcoming a newborn is exciting, and giving gifts that can grow with them is the gift that keeps on giving. For more unique baby gifts that offer stimulating experiences for newborns and essentials that every parent needs, check out Metro Baby online.
