My niece recently had her first child making me a great Aunt (and making me feel old!) so I spent a lot of time online looking for a perfect gift for the baby. Here are my suggestions for a gift ideas for a new muslim baby.
When I had my children I wasn’t aware of many gifts that could be termed as ‘Islamic’. However there is now quite a variety, with more products being added to the selection.
Desi Doll Company
One of the items they have is the Moon and Stars Quran Cot Mobile with Light Projection.
The colours and design are perfect for any style of nursery and what better way for your child to be soothed to sleep than with the sounds of the Quran?
My other favourite product from Desi Doll is the Dua Pillow and also suitable for the younger children is the Soft Cloth Book – Arabic Alphabet. You can find more information on these products at Desi Doll Company.
Etsy is a great place to find some unique gifts for newborns and their parents. And at the same time by purchasing from there you are likely to be helping small businesses. From personalised frames to personalised dummy clips, there is sure to be something that appeals to you.
Another website I came across is Personalised Sketch. If you are looking for personalised clothing then they stock a range of items including gift sets with some including personalised blankets and sleepsuits.
Little Wings Creative
Little Wings Creative have a section for Islamic Baby Gifts and my particular favourites are the Muslim Baby Milestone Cards. I never realised that Milestone Cards were a thing (maybe they weren’t when my children were babies) but have seem some adorable pictures of babies next to their milestone cards. If I could go back in time I would use them with my girls! To find out more and to see their other baby gifts check out their website: Little Wings Creative.
Aside from the usual gifts of perhaps money and clothes, what I personally love are personalised products like soft toys.
In addition to blankets and comforters which can be personalised with all the baby’s birth details you can also get personalised dolls. I am a fan of these rag dolls from The Little Embroidery Studio. They are perfect to gift as they are something the little ones can keep and cherish as they get older.
If you are looking for more unique gifts then another website that has a variety is Not on the High Street. From clothes, books, teethers and name trains…you are likely to find a gift from there that you may want to purchase for the new arrival!
