I know I may be a Mammy now three times over but with each new baby there are some basics and essentials you either can’t avoid buying, things that you run out of or things that simply need replacing due to the constant washing or staining a newborn creates. There’s nothing like a gift for a new baby to make you go weak at the knees with the cuteness and the sheer teeny size of all the items! And so when this Bosca Baby, the most beautifully packaged box filled with newborn essentials, arrived in our household while I was in the hospital, I was thrilled.
This is the sort of gift box that would make the PERFECT gift for that special friend, sister, cousin, neighbour, daughter that is expecting a baby. I think it’s probably especially nice for a first time Mum because god knows the sheer volume of items that need to be purchased can be daunting and overwhelming and this box will give a first time Mum breathing space and one less thing to worry about. And it doesn’t need to be a first baby, the bosca is packed (and I mean literally packed!) with all the essentials you need for a new baby regardless of where they come in the pecking order, like muslin cloths and a comforter.Bosca Baby is an Irish company bosca meaning box for those who aren’t fluent in the national language here! I got the Bosca Classic in neutral, you can get it in pink or blue of course, and it came packed with 10 perfectly picked items for a newborn and costs €59.95. There are a range of products to choose from in terms of budget and there are so many more boxes to come.This is the box when you first open it, a beautiful, good and heavy knitted blanket, I love this because honestly with kids you can’t have enough blankets for snuggling up in on cold days during the winter to lying on during the warm days of the summer. There is also a muslin cloth which is literally the most handy thing in the world with newborns for catching spit up! And there is a comforter which is so, so soft to touch and has different textures to keep small hands occupied when they first start exploring. You’ve probably heard me whither on about natural and organic products a million times before but never is it more important to use pure and safe products than on a newborn, their skin is so delicate. And to dry them off afterwards there is a 100% cotton hooded towel. There is also a full outfit for a little baby which is yellow in the neutral box, the babygro and vest of 0-3 months and the bib is brilliant because it’s big!
So if you’re after a really special, thoughtful and useful gift for any Mammy to be or new Mum out there I think this is the most stylish and elegant way to say ‘best of luck and here’s one less thing to worry about’!!
