Finding a nice, personal, original and perhaps also sustainable maternity gift can be quite difficult. Especially if you're not a mother yourself. We lend you a hand with 6 sustainable maternity gifts for your girlfriend, colleague or sister.
Hard to find sustainable maternity gifts?
Nope, nowadays there are many webshops and shops that offer nice sustainable maternity gifts. Still, when you're looking for a nice maternity gift, it can sometimes be quite difficult to find something that is original and to buy something that not everyone comes up with at the baby's visit. So no, in this blog no rompers with ''i love mom'', socks in 9349 colors or a pacifier with a heart on it, but sustainable maternity gifts that you can really get on with.
1. Cloud light from Cre8
Cre8 is a gift shop in the heart of Amsterdam. You can go here for your business gifts, jewelry, clocks and therefore also for sustainable maternity gifts. Everything is made with special laser techniques, 3D printing, 3D scanning and vinyl cutting. They work together with young people who are at a distance from the labor market. Everything is made and produced in the heart of Amsterdam, no outsourcing to the Far East. So a double good goal.
“For my own daughter Emma I have a very nice cloud lamp made of wood with her own name in it. I think it's a real eye-catcher in her nursery. A sustainable maternity gift like this is therefore always original, and certainly personal.”
Tip: they also have very nice name puzzles.
Booklets also belong in this top 6 sustainable maternity gifts. Booklets are always a good idea, nice to have many and you can read and pass them on endlessly. My favorites:
- Where's the cake? An exciting and colorful quest through the mountains. The best part of this book is the beautiful illustrations by the Gouden Penseel winner Thé Tjong-Khing.
- We're going on a bear hunt. A true classic among Dutch picture books. We go on a bear hunt has been read to in the Netherlands for more than 30 years.
- Rhinos don't eat pancakes. A warmly funny story that is just long enough for bedtime.
3. Block set
Wooden toys are almost impossible to break, so you can be sure that they will last a long time and provide hours of fun. 's block set Lovevery is perhaps the most comprehensive block set ever. The set consists of 70 sturdy blocks and 18 shapes, which together provide playing and learning fun for toddlers and preschoolers. This cool sustainable maternity gift is made from sustainably obtained, FSC-certified wood and non-toxic lacquer.
4. Gift card van Gray Label RNTD
A gift card from Gray Label RNTD can really not be missed in the list of sustainable maternity gifts. At this cool company you can rent organic (GOTS certified) baby clothes for a fixed amount per month. This way you always have a good size at home and as soon as you no longer need it, you simply send it back. No clothing management afterwards and bulging boxes with clothes. Because let's face it, the first year they grow out of size and it is also difficult to use for a second due to seasons (you really have a completely different wish with a summer baby than with a winter baby).
5. Wee Gallery Jungle Viewing Cards
Also the jungle viewing cards from Wee Gallery Jungle cannot be missed in the list of sustainable maternity gifts. With these viewing cards, the baby has endless viewing pleasure. The contrasting colors stimulate vision. The cards have rounded corners so that the little one cannot get hurt and they are made from recycled cardboard. When your baby is older, the cards are also fun to teach the animals. A truly original and durable maternity gift that will last a long time.
6. Gift card
With our gift card, your colleague, friend or sister can, for example, rent a baby carrier, pram, breast pump or co-sleeper for a few months. A sustainable maternity gift where the recipient can choose what to spend the amount on. The gift cards are available from €25. Hopefully these 6 sustainable maternity gifts have inspired you for the sustainable maternity gift that will make someone very happy.
