1. Man in The Moon Spoon

Prince George hasn't cornered the market in silver spoons and this would make a lovely – if lavish – gift for non-royal babies.

2. Sophie The Giraffe gift case

£24.99, sophielagirafe.co.uk

Sophie has been in the lives of newborns for more than 50 years. She's made from natural rubber so is soft and perfect for chewing.

Made in Sri Lanka using ethically sourced materials, this traditional ark feels lovely to the touch.

8. Children's wooden swing

What child (once it's started walkling) wouldn't love its very own swing in the garden?
