As the months go by in my pregnancy I realise now is probably around the right sort of time to start investing in the items we need for our little lady due in autumn. With my eldest I had a lot of items bought or gifted second hand to me and then with my daughter was born I didn’t need to purchase much as I already had most things we would need. Fast forward nearly 8 years and we are needing to start from scratch as neither myself or my partner has any of the baby items from when our kids were younger as our ex partners have the majority of items or we passed things along to friends when they were pregnant.
Money is quite tight and we have a list of essentials to purchase but we probably won’t be buying many of the novelty or luxury items that other parents may considering investing in. I was so excited when Arty Apple got in contact to see if we would like to have an item from their extensive shop of handmade items as this meant that would be able to have something personalised for our little girl that we would be able to keep as a memento as she grows older; something we didn’t think our tight budget would allow for.
We choose the soft white hooded baby towel and opted to personalise the hood with our daughters Surname as at the time we hadn’t chosen a name for our baby girl. The towel came packaged neatly folded in tissue paper in a sturdy gift box perfect for storing the towel in once it has been used plenty in the years to come.
The wording on the hood is impeccably stitched and the towel is super soft which will be perfect for our newborn. The towel retails at £14.50 including personalisation which I think is a really fair price and would be perfect as a gift for expectant parents.
I was sent the item for the purpose of this review but all opinions are my own.
