If you’re looking for a baby gift that’s not only fabulous but fair trade to boot, check out chic eco boutique Boudalu, where owner Sarah has put together some gorgeous gift boxes, featuring the cutest woollen toys by Kenana Knitters (a collective of women in rural Kenya), plus Alaffia ethical skincare products created from shea butter gathering projects in Togo.
The Mane Attraction, Â£32, might just be the perfect present, consisting of a distinctly unscary lion, Blissful Baby Balm for the new arrival, and Coco Butter for mum. However, if you’re anything like me, you won’t be able to resist the lambswool booties and smiley sheep of Sheep in Boots, Â£22.50, for your own little one. Call it guilt-free spending though as not only are you helping Third World community projects with your purchase, but all packaging is either recycled, recyclable or biodegradable. What’s not to love about that?
