Today is THE day! Today will bring the christening of the year’s most anticipated baby, Prince George, son of HRH’s William and Catherine. As any grandparent, godparent or friend of the family knows, this occasion calls for a gift. Yes. Another one! So we have put together a list that is sure to please this growing Royal family or, for that matter, any little boy and his proud parents.
Being royal means being dapper. One can’t be seen in just any off the rack onesie now can one? So we recommend a set of Father and Son Bow Ties from Homespun Vintage. These sets, made in the US of A, make looking like a stylish modern Royal easy for pop and son. And they are a charming salute from America to it’s original Pop!
Princes William and Harry have both been passionate supporters of various charities across Africa. Dad William is known to have first gotten this vibrant continent under his skin during a trip to Kenya at age 17. So why not make sure George is clothed in some of the best Kenya has to offer, from Toto Knits, a company supporting female entrepreneurs with a living wage. We heartily recommend a wise owl hoodie!
Mom Kate is clearly already a fan of this gorgeous line, an enormously popular adaptation of classic muslin swaddlers from Australia. Founded by an Aussie mom who was surprised not to find her country’s baby staple in the US, the company’s swaddlers won the coveted honor of snuggling new baby George on his way home from the hospital. As he grows, George will appreciate the same softness in the form of one of Aden and Anais’s Musy Mate Loveys. May we suggest an Elephant Lovey in honor of Mom and Dad’s work with the Tusk Foundation?
Will and Kate are known to be happy home-bodies. So why not consider a gift that helps the growing family spend some quality time at home with baby using a Zoobean Children’s book subscription. With Zoobean, any parent can customize a list of preferences and receive a book every month that perfectly suits their child’s age and interests. Though a special request to Zoobean to add a field for “Royalty” under the profile page might be in order!
George’s Parents are very active in charitable endeavors. Naturally patronage comes with the gig, but they seem to take their work for various non-profits both seriously and to heart. When gift giving to parents such as these, consider just plain giving. Many charitable organizations are geared specifically to maternal and infant care in the name of a newborn, like Kangu or CultureBaby’s own Baby For Baby campaign. Or you can select to donate to any of charities under the patronage of the Duke and Duchess.
