I’m a sucker for a beautiful baby journal (even though I haven’t yet managed to complete either of my children’s!) and this one, from German company Pleased to Meet, is certainly that. It has a pleasingly modern feel and features quirky twists, such as a family tree masquerading as a Parisian townhouse and giraffe height charts. A fantastic gift for new parents (although do tell them about quick-fix app Mementobox as well – we all know there’s no time for writing in books in those early weeks!), it costs Â£25 from The Kid Who, where you’ll also find Pleased to Meet cards, wrap, a perpetual calendar and a Friends Book for children to get their pals to sign when they leave infant school – fab idea.
