Christmas Gift Guide for Babies

It's Christmas, and new additions to the gang can often be difficult to buy for, because you're not sure what they might already have, or what will be the most useful for baby. Check in with the recipient, especially if you're considering buying something big! If in doubt, a babysitting voucher is always appreciated! Books are always a great option: we've included Bathe The Cat, a riotous adventure of a family trying to get everyday chores done, but any favourite children's book will be a perfect gift that is not only useful, but has sentimental value.
We think any of these ideas would make a great gift, including snuggly hats (courtesy of us here at LHW!), play mats for tummy time, and a super cool Keith Haring sensory panel from Etta Loves!

Emma Watson, Owner, Little Hotdog Watson

After growing up in the North-west of England, Emma’s love of travel and style saw her career move to London with a fashion + business degree,  first working as a trend researcher then menswear buyer for some of the most famous stores in the UK. 

In 2015, having had her first baby, she moved to Norwich to explore a family life closer to beaches and the countryside. Becoming a parent she found herself in a world of kidswear that didn’t look good or perform for the type of fresh air fun as a family so she set about creating her own brand. Little Hotdog Watson was born in 2016. The summer and winter hats for kids and adults, jam-packed with innovative protective technology have gone on to win awards, grace the pages of magazines, like Vogue, Grazia, Independent, Mother and Baby and celebrities alike. 

Emma had another daughter in 2019 and became a lecturer in Fashion and Business at Norwich University of the Arts.  She continues to design hats at her dining room table and share her passion to help families get outside more and explore the world. Here is one of her favourite outside blogs; 15 games adults will love playing with kids
