A Mindful Gift Giving Guide

A Mindful Gift Giving Guide

Something they want, Something they need, Something to wear, Something to read!

If you are looking for a little inspiration for the holiday season this is a great rule of thumb for gift giving. Following the philosophy of want, need, wear and read for choosing the best gift for children and babies will help you to choose meaningful gifts that don’t go to waste.

We like to think that Designer Bums products help you tick off all of your wants, wear, and needs at the same time! Whether you are shopping for your own family or someone else, the beautiful hand illustrated Designer Bums prints will bring joy to the receiver. 

Do Nan and Pop need some new sheets for sleepovers at their house? Do you want to gift a friend with their favourite design in a Wet Bag or Swaddle? Would the kids love an XL Wet Bag as a Santa sack?

No matter what you need this holiday season we have you covered. Below you will find tips on how to reduce waste this holiday season with some mindful and easy switches, as well as some of our top products for gifting to others.

Some of our top Holiday tips:

  1. There are endless uses for our XL Wet Bags and one of our  favourites at this time of year is to use them to hide holiday gifts from little eyes! 
  2. Instead of wrapping paper why not use a reusable option like a Wet Bag or Swaddle instead! Using a Wet Bag or Swaddle to wrap gifts can reduce your Holiday waste, and can be reused again and again. Our Swaddles make a gorgeous scarf once bubs is done with them.
  3. Your little one can pick out their favourite XL Wet Bag print and use it as a Santa Sack. (Just remember not to hang with the zipper open as this can strain the opening).
