Choosing a gift fit for Princes and Princesses everywhere!

The birth of the new Royal baby Prince Louis has got everyone feeling happy and perhaps a little bit broody and to mark the occasion the lucky little prince will be getting a bespoke gift from Antique Rose.

All babies are princes and princesses for us; precious new additions to families and friend’s families. Choosing the perfect gift can, however, be tricky as you want to show your love and thoughtfulness beyond a pack of vests or baby grows and if it’s baby number 2, 3 or 4, you want to give that little new born something different from its other siblings.

We’ve put together a guide to help you choose that perfect gift. To help you think outside of the box and equate how precious and loved they are.

Twinkle, twinkle, little star

We all know the rhyme and each little baby is a shining star in our lives, so why not use the phrase to show your love with a thoughtful gift? Choose from bibs, vests, muslins, cards and hanging tokens to gift a sentiment that will be treasured forever. These gifts can also be personalised with baby’s name and come in a choice of blue, pink and grey, complementing the baby’s gender and your style and décor.

Rufus Rabbit

The stunning Rufus Rabbit range, designed in Derby by Anna Danielle, comes in beautiful packaging, creating a gift worthy to place at the feet of a new arrival. Available in pink or blue, choose from soft and delicate bibs in a gorgeous envelope, squishy and squidgy comfort rabbits hiding in a little box or bag, or rattling and cuddly rabbits with matching jingly shoes! Many of our customers love to opt for this range because of the beautiful design and presentation.

A picture says a thousand words

We all want to capture that first new born moment, that first smile, that first yawn, that first giggle and keep it forever. What better way to preserve it than in a beautiful frame adorned with baby related images or subtle sparkles. We have an extensive range, including ones with writing to convey the perfect message, or we can create a bespoke frame in-house.

What’s in a name?

We often recommend bunting to our customers because it really is a unique and stunning way to say ‘welcome’ to a new baby. Choose from ceramic hearts, red and blue style bunting, pink florals or neutral hessian browns. Bunting is also a wonderful way to add colour and personalise the nursery and don’t forget the educational element! As baby grows, you can teach him or her the letters in their name! Personalised bunting is an excellent way to give a bespoke gift that is available immediately, great if it’s a last-minute purchase as baby has made an unexpected early arrival! It’s also a great opportunity to spell out other sentiments – love, joy, baby, nursery… The list is as endless as your love.

Precious and personal

A personalised hanging decoration or sign made exclusively for the new baby is a completely unique way to show your love and will be a forever treasured gift. Our expert team can make a bespoke sign or you can write a personal message on the back of one of our chalk board painted hanging decorations. A little star has been born and needs treasuring and celebrating. We also have a range of ceramic hanging decorations with beautiful sentiments that speak straight from the heart.
