If you’re bored of seeing the same old Christmas gifts for babies on the high street, you’ll be pleased to know we’ve scoured the internet for something a little different.

We’ve rounded up a selection of presents that new parents will welcome during their baby’s first year, all from independent boutiques and outlets, so its less likely they’ll end up with five of the same thing.

With everything from the essential (muslins) to the fun (dinosaur onesies), this guide will help you find something special for someone celebrating their first ever Christmas.
