Will it be a girl or a boy? Kate is keeping us waiting but if you know an expectant mum and want to be super organised, here are some lovely gifts which would suit the most regal of babies (and their mums and dads). A great gift would have been some lovely Disney based jewellery pieces from DiamondTreats but unfortunately they are not for sale. I’ve lots of gorgeous ideas below instead.

I think these make a change from the usual flowers and chocolates, don’t you? And if mum is going to breastfeed, champagne is a no-no! You might also want to get a little something for a soon-to-be-sibling too. Caitlin was fascinated by Ieuan’s arrival and had a cuddly toy to assuage any pique at being temporarily eclipsed in the attention stakes!
If budget is an issue, probably the most welcome gift of all is an offer to babysit, even if it is just to let the new parents have a coffee out together, or why not offer to help with something like the ironing while the new mum takes a well-deserved nap?
For a new mum, sleep is the best gift of all!
