Looking for the best luxury baby gifts? We have a bunch of ideas we think you will love!
If you are in the mood to spoil that special little one, you can’t go wrong with these best luxury baby gifts.
Shopping for baby gifts can be a fun experience.
However, it can be trickier than it seems. There is always that pressure you feel as the gift giver to choose a gift that not only carries the cute factor, but also one that will be enjoyed by the baby – or useful for the parents.
The good thing about baby presents is that there is no shortage of ideas to bounce around. The question is, what will you end up getting?
If well thought out, it can be hard to miss the mark with luxury baby gifts. That’s because expensive baby gear tends to be somewhat exclusive (as with all things luxury).
The best luxury baby gifts are particularly ideal for those who want to give nothing but the best to that little new arrival and are fine with spending just that little bit more – grandpa, grandma, aunts, uncles and other closer relatives, and of course, close friends.
If your budget allows you some wriggle room to splurge on a luxury baby gift, we’ve got some cool ideas for you.
Best Luxury Baby Gifts
While this listing may feature some expensive baby gift products, we have tried to avoid items that are over the top price-wise. Let’s leave those for celebrities and royalty.
That said, here are our top picks for best luxury baby gifts.
Speaking of royals…
Silver Cross is a renowned British brand whose origins go as far back as 1877. Yes, babies still lived the life back then, although that was for a select few.
Today, the premium baby brand is perhaps most famous for its connections to the British Royal Family after the Duchess of Cambridge chose the Sleepover Elegance, a two-in-one pram and pushchair for Prince George.
The Wayfarer Pushchair and Carrycot blends the traditional with the contemporary, and we will tell you why we say this.
You see, back in the 70s, Silver Cross had a Wayfarer pushchair which proved a massive hit at the time. It is from this product that the current pram and buggy borrows from, although the new version is a truly modern stroller for the modern parent.
The new model comes in 5 colourways and fabrics, with a matte silver aluminium chassis that gives it an elegant and modern look. The handlebars are soft and enhance the look even more with the trendy faux-leather covering which gives the buggy a premium feel.
The hood features a pop-out sun visor that should come in handy in making the baby comfortable, as well as a mesh ventilation system.
The Silver Cross Wayfarer Pushchair and Carrycot is easy to fold, although it is a bit large and bulky when folded. But understandably so. However, it only comes in at 6.5kg in weight, which is very light for a full feature pram and pushchair.
This makes it suitable for not just home use, but travel as well.
It is easy to push and steer even in tight areas like crowded supermarket aisles. The suspension is very responsive even on grass, gravel and cobbled surfaces, meaning the baby will not be jerked around when it’s taken out.
As far as accommodation goes, the Wayfarer can hold new-borns and children of up to 25kg. That is a good allowance as it means the baby should be able to use it for a few years before they outgrow it.
Besides, so comfortable is the carrycot that it can be used for overnight sleeping without the baby tiring or getting uneasy. Bonus points. The lie-flat carrycot is detachable.
As far as luxury baby gifts go, the lucky recipient of the Silver Cross Wayfarer Pushchair and Carrycot will sing your praises for decades to come. It doesn’t get better than this.
If you need options, the Stokke Xplory 6 Stroller is a great alternative.
We have covered luxury strollers in more detail in this article which outlines more alternatives.
For a baby gift that fetches in the region of £500, that’s quite expensive. But these cute fellows are really worth it, if you are in the market for a luxury baby gift.
They are a product of Steiff, a famous German brand known the world over for its plush toys that are big on quality and boast beautiful designs.
Since its inception in 1880, Steiff’s stuffed animal toys have become an extremely popular choice – you probably grew up on one or know someone who was raised with one of these.
This popularity has been fueled not just by their unassuming quality, but also the sentimental value they carry for most people through years of creating memories with the toy.
This nostalgic love has seen them grow into more than just a toy: they have become a collector’s item. That’s how far-reaching the impact of this gift would be for the baby you plan to gift it to.
The toys began as elephants, but the line now comprises a lion, tiger, pony, bear and a cute unicorn (Links leading to Amazon). We think the lion in particular would make for an excellent choice for a baby born under the star sign of Leo!
Weighing 7kg, the golden blond riding lion is recommended for children aged 3 years and above. Steiff’s riding toys are soft and huggable so they are kid-friendly.
So, why pay more while there are riding toys going for less?
Well, the big-name brand aside, Steiff’s riding toys are extremely durable and can be passed on down the generations. Think about that – a toy that an entire family can remember you by.
They are extremely sturdy and in the case of the lion, can support up to 150kg. That’s a lot, meaning they can be used by the toddler until he or she outgrows it.
At the same time, they are cuddly so there is no risk of injury to the child.
Steiff’s riding toys are unmatched in quality and will always be a cute addition to any child’s room. A real keepsake.
Cashmere is one of the most luxurious and softest fabrics you can lay your hands upon. Amazingly, despite being up to eight times warmer than sheep’s wool, it is lighter than majority of wool fabrics (with regard to weight).
With qualities like these, it is not surprising then the material can be quite pricey. Particularly when you consider the fibres that are woven into cashmere come from the soft undercoat of goats reared in some of Asia’s highest plateaus.
In other words, it is rare to source and manufacture.
While more expensive than your ordinary plush baby blanket, you can get an original cashmere baby blanket for roughly under 100 pounds.
Which is a reasonable price to fork out for a blanket that will not only attract plenty of oohs and aahs from the receiving parents, but also will be used and used to keep the baby warm for years to come.
There are several options available online that can make for a good buy.
The Moon and Stars Cashmere Baby Cot Blanket from Love Cashmere is one option.
So is the brand’s Unisex Luxury Cashmere Baby Blanket from the loved Scottish brand.
This particular one is unisex but if you want it specially tailored for a baby girl, consider the pink version of it.
Baby boy’s too is available in baby blue.
All blankets are made from 100% cashmere and crafted by hand.
Travelling with a baby or toddler can take a lot out of them, so the importance of a good travel bed cannot be emphasised enough.
If the family you are considering buying a baby gift for travels a lot, the travel crib from BabyBjorn would just be the thing to gift them.
It is perfect for when the whole family is vacationing or for the occasional night (or two) that the baby is left under the custody of grandma and grandpa.
Obviously, there are more affordable options on the market, but this offering from BabyBjorn makes for an expensive baby gift. You don’t have to worry about value with this baby cot as its overall quality is right up there.
If you are not familiar with BabyBjorn, this is a family-owned Swedish brand that has been creating childcare products since the ‘60s (1961 to be specific).
They are known for their high quality products that are safe for children, a track record that has been achieved through their close collaboration with an international network of paediatricians to develop their products.
The BabyBjorn Travel Crib Light weighs 6kg and boasts a lightweight construction that makes it easily portable. Setting up and bringing it down only takes a few seconds.
It comes with a crib mattress unlike many others, one constructed with soft, thick cotton designed to maximise comfort. It also features a removable waterproof mattress cover, so the parents won’t have to stress about leaking diapers.
Speaking of sleep, a quality crib bedding set is another luxury gift idea that should prove very useful.
Not only will it aid the baby in sleeping like, well – a baby – it will spruce up the nursery too.
A set that comes highly recommended is the 9-Piece Baby Bedding Set courtesy of Sweet Jojo Designs, a Florida-based startup operated by women who have a good understanding of the modern mom.
Indeed, you only need look at its extremely thoughtful design to know both parents and baby will appreciate this contemporary crib.
Another great example is the My Friend Pooh 4-Pc Baby Crib Bedding Set by Disney (yes, the Mickey Mouse Disney) That’s one luxury crib set you will never go wrong with.
It may not have as many bells and whistles as the Sweet Jojo Design offering, but this one allows you to gift a lavish gift that will not set you back by much.
A sterling silver picture frame makes perfect sense for those occasions you want to gift an expensive baby present but do not want to go overboard or simply prefer to keep things low-key.
Uncles and male friends (or even grandpa) can always resort to this one when they are short of gift ideas.
Available in unique designs, these stylish picture frames make cute baby photos even shinier.
Cunill makes great sterling silver frames crafted from environmentally sustainable wood, with a lacquer finish protecting the sterling silver for a lasting shine.
Another cute little item that can make for a thoughtful baby gift.
The Moneyphant and Moneyphant with twins are modern piggy savings banks made by Georg Jensen, a Danish designer company that deals in silverware.
These unisex piggy banks are made from polished stainless steel. The Moneyphant with Twins comes accompanied by little twin elephants made from oak wood which can slot in like a puzzle into the larger steel elephant.
This is one of those timeless gifts that the child can have on their shelf for ages (if not a lifetime) as they cultivate the habit of saving money from an early age.
But they uphold that cute factor which should make it easier for the child to cultivate a good relationship with the piggy bank. That can only be a good thing.
Moneyphant with Twins is also Available on Amazon.
The best luxury baby gifts may be expensive than your run-of-the-mill presents, but they are well worth the money, if you ask us!
