It is not uncommon for people to keep the soft toys they are bought as babies for their entire lives, so well-chosen cuddlies and plush toys can make wonderfully special baby girl gifts.
High-quality soft toys needn’t break the bank either, with best-selling items like plush, super-soft cuddly bunnies and bears available in the £10-£20 price bracket.
If you’re up for spending a bit more than that, you can find soft toys as part of hampers, especially tailored to welcome newborn baby girls, featuring cuddly friends alongside flowers and useful bathroom products for parent and baby.

Newborns are exhausting, and your friends or family members will be tired and in need of a helping hand as they welcome their precious cargo into the world. You can give them a boost by buying a gift they will find useful every day.
Designer changing mats, bibs, and swaddle blankets can make wonderfully unique baby girl gifts that give parents a real pick-me-up, and you can even find items like baby car seat covers made of stretchy, designer fabric for the parents who have everything.
As with clothing and linen, look out for quality and safety marks that indicate the products you buy have been adequately tested before being put on sale. For example, some practical items such as teething sets for newborn babies use food grade paint to ensure they are safe for little ones to play with.
