Ladies and gentlemen, drumroll please! I introduce to you the most stylish baby gift ever…
Big words to live up to, I admit, but I think you’ll agree that these Orla Kiely baby books tick all of these boxes:
- Brilliant at helping the baby’s development
- Sturdy enough to survive being thrown across the room or dropped (repeatedly) from a great height
- Aesthetically pleasing for Mum to read to baby
- Look so very beautiful sitting on your coffee table at home
They are very welcome in a world where our homes that we took great pains in decorating and accessorising pre-baby (my living room is a pretty good advert for M&S, Laura Ashley and John Lewis) are now covered in bright, colourful plastic toys.
I’m lucky that a close friend bought both as a gift for Perry Junior. She knows about my love for Orla. Just walk into my guest bedroom and you’ll be smacked with the print everywhere. In fact, I love it so much that I nearly bought this fab t-shirt solely based on the fact the child model is posing in front of some beautiful Orla wallpaper. Hmm. Worrying, considering my child is a girl…
