Why an organic baby gift? When buying a gift you certainly want to make sure that baby only gets the best. The best means that the product is safe and healthy. If you select a green gift for the little one you get that peace of mind because natural and organic products are eco-friendly, non-toxic and not harmful (as 'ordinary' products might be). Additionally, organic products make a difference to the future and protect the environment.
Babies are very sensitive and may react to toxic agents when these come in contact with their delicate skin. Allergic reactions, eczema and other risky side effects may be the result. By using organic cotton clothes this can be eliminated. They are gentler on the skin and healthier for baby.
And parents also need not worry when their baby plays with organic cotton toys or chews on organic teethers such as Sophie The Giraffe (pictured above, read more about this cute teething toy a bit further below).
While a few years ago organic items used to have a typical 'organic look', were uni-colored, dull and boring, they nowadays often are available in colorful and cute patterns and designs.
These organic newborn gift ideas are not only meant for people searching a gift, but also for parents who want to raise their kids the green way.
Producers have recognized that more and more consumers place great value on pure and natural products. Thus, there are many (online) shops emerging that carry organic items only. But also big retailers such as H&M, Walmart and GAP have started to introduce organic clothing or an organic (baby) line besides their 'regular' lines and items.
It all started with organic food and since then the organic movement has grown from its small beginnings into a large movement of people striving to lead a healthier lifestyle.
With a baby gift basket you never can go wrong. And with an organic gift basket for baby neither! You can order organic gift baskets online or make one yourself. See the instructions for a handmade baby gift basket here and use organic baby products such as organic baby lotion, organic cotton baby clothes, organic bibs, organic body care, organic diapers, green baby toys, etc. Of course you should also use an organic basket, for example one that's made of organic palm tree leaves. Maybe you would also like to include one of the organic baby books mentioned below. See also more ideas on natural and organic baby gift baskets in my specialty baby gift baskets section.
And, as nice as it is, do not use clear gift-foil wrap for your organic gift basket! It's not very environment-friendly and you can as well go without it. If you want your gift basket to be a bit more colorful, simple attach a few bows or some colorful raffia straw ribbon.

During the first year baby will spend a lot of time with the blanket, be it under the blanket, on the blanket or wrapped in the blanket. An organic cotton baby blanket ensures you of all natural materials - free of pesticides, herbicides, fertilisers and other harmful substances which can ruin baby's health. With organic materials you ensure baby's healthy and sound sleep and consequently the sleep of its parents, too!
Companies who manufacture organic cotton items purchase their materials from organic growers. This means that the cotton hasn't been treated with pesticides or other hazardous chemicals. Pure and natural are the two main goals of organic producers and growers. Thus, the production of an organic blanket is eco-friendly.
