An Organic Holiday: Eco Friendly Baby Gifts Without the Guilt

Giving eco-friendly baby gifts allows you to ditch lingering concerns about the purity of your products. When you go organic, you don't have to worry about BPA, PVC, or other chemicals, which sometimes show up in baby toys and accessories. Hatched specializes in organic presents for baby showers and birthdays. You can find sustainable Christmas gifts and must-have tokens for other holidays, too. Here are a few of our favorites.

A Little Something for Mom and Baby

Some eco-friendly baby gifts benefit the parents, as well. Skin-to-skin contact is an essential way to bond with the baby. Help out mom—or dad—with a hand-picked selection of all-natural, organic skincare products that are soothing to the skin and safe for baby. A nursing balm that features organic, sustainable ingredients is a must-have gift for little bundles who are breastfed. Mom will love this gift, too. Her baby can breastfeed safely, but mom can hydrate her dry, painful skin. Cocoa butter, beeswax, and various essential oils and plant extracts are ideal for mommy’s skin.

A Gift That Encourages Cuddles

Most parents are always happy to receive gifts that allow them to cuddle their babies. The babies appreciate these kinds of gifts, as well, although they might not be too vocal about it. We kid, we kid! Seriously, if you're searching for sustainable Christmas presents, you can't go wrong with a swaddle. The secret is to go a step further and pick out a handcrafted organic option.

Cotton is the go-to material for natural, sustainable swaddles. Keep an eye out for cozy organic cotton or a lightweight muslin gauze. Not only can mom swaddle her baby to keep him or her close while she goes about her day, but she can also use it as a makeshift blanket or a nursing cover.

The Perfect Baby Blanket

In the same vein, baby blankets are excellent presents on special occasions. Because you're looking for eco-friendly baby gifts, you have to pay close attention to the material. Once again, cotton is the way to go. You have to be careful with babies and their blankets. You never want the little bundles to get overheated. A lightweight cotton blanket is the answer. Organic cotton is soft but durable. Baby's blanket can easily become a keepsake.

All-Natural Baby Products

Bath time goodies and skincare products are can't-miss ideas for sustainable Christmas gifts. Baby needs skincare options just as much as mom. Since babies have soft, delicate skin, it's crucial to select gentle products that won't cause irritation.

All-natural ingredients are the way to go. Organic skincare for babies relies on plant extracts, natural oils, and other ingredients that are certified organic. The parents will love you for gifting their baby with lotions, washes, and shampoos that are gentle enough for baby's sensitive skin.

Playtime, Sustainable-Style

You can't go wrong with toys. Ever. Fortunately, it's easy to find eco-friendly baby gifts that will entertain the baby. It's always better to err on the side of caution, so we recommend toys that are hypoallergenic as well as sustainable. Not surprisingly, cuddly cotton toys are perfect. The baby will have something to snuggle, but it's 100% safe. Needless to say, the parents will love that, too.

Hatched Boutique has a wide-ranging collection of eco-friendly baby gifts to give at birthdays and Christmas. Choose something functional, practical, and fun, be it baby lotion or a cute new toy.
