Since Honor’s arrival, I have received endless support and love from everyone around me, and it’s absolutely touching to see so many people reach out. Whether it’s from my own family members, my close friends, or even my followers on social media, every little bit of it counts – and I appreciate every single one of you that’s taken time out of their day to make sure Honor and I are doing well.
If you’ve been following my Instagram stories, I’m sure you’ve seen many of the cute baby gear for Honor that we’ve received, and sometimes even little treats for mum :). But it doesn’t stop there – Honor also received some super cute and chic toys and accessories, like this sweet cat blanket with colorful pom poms from 10 to 12 Baby Lounge.
With Mother’s Day close at hand, I’ve curated a newborn gift shopping guide, with some of my favorite gifts that Honor has received so far. And who knows, maybe some of these items could be a great gift idea for one of your mum or mama-to-be friends! Now, prepare yourselves for a lot of baby goodies, as I’m about to deep dive into my ultimate guide to baby clothing and accessories. Happy shopping!
Though a lot of people have mentioned Honor looks like Mackenzie, in terms of her clothes (and ever-expanding closet I might add), she’s already becoming a little English fashionista like her mama. Hopefully fashion is something we’ll bond over in the future, but for now I’m just having so much fun dressing her up in all the adorable pieces that we’ve been given. Honestly, some of these dresses from Elizabeth on Jones, Coco-Belle, Patachou, Belle Enfant, Mini-A-Ture and Seraphine are amazing and wish that I could wear them myself, especially the floral ones.
Last, but certainly not least, Honor is so fortunate to have such amazing outerwear to rock (even though it doesn’t get all that chilly in LA, babies get cold easily, and we’ll be making a visit to UK later in the year!). My dear friend Anine Bing sent over the world’s cutest mini leather jacket for Honor to match with her mummy. And of course, let’s not neglect this little one’s British heritage by bringing out the trendy cardigans and coats from Wild & Gorgeous, Caramel, Mini Boden, Tierno Portugal (matching cardigan AND bonnet, no kidding!), and this stylish kaftan from Melissa Odabash in case she wants to catch some sun rays.
I don’t know about you guys, but baby shoes are probably one of the cutest things in the world to look at, let alone shop for! They perfectly encapsulate how sweet, cuddly, and teeny every baby is out there. Some of my favorites so far are these red Mary-Jane slippers from Rachel Riley, or these gorgeous pink ones from Amaia. And of course, like mother like daughter, Honor’s got a lot of choices at hand now with these trendy, sequin boots from AKID and adorable slippers from Marks and Spencer.
Toys & Accessories
When I was younger, I remember I had a “special” blanket that I always carried with me (who else did that!?) and it’s so great to know that Honor has a few choices at hand when she’s old enough to have a preference. But no blanket will go unloved! These extremely plush and soft blankets from Madeleine Thompson for Blue Almonds and Pappe are perfect to accompany Honor in her crib. Also, can we talk about this divine and charming swan rocker from Monique Lhuillier?!
