5 Organic & Eco-Friendly Gift Ideas for Baby

Posted on

Looking for the perfect baby shower gift? We’ve curated a collection of our best eco-friendly & organic baby gift ideas. Give your new little bundle of joy something unique, safe and eco-friendly. 

Every new mom wants the best for their baby. We spend months researching the best products, baby-proofing small spaces and making our home as safe as possible for this new bundle of joy. However, most moms don’t realize that all baby clothes are not organic. In fact, most children’s clothing is not organic, which means it can be made out of cotton that has been treated with harmful chemicals that can’t always be washed away. This can be particularly scary since clothing is in constant contact with a baby's delicate and sensitive skin.

Choosing items made of organic cotton and non-toxic dyes can ensure that your baby’s skin is safe from harmful chemical, thus making organic baby products the safest and most natural choice for a healthy baby.

All of the the cotton at Under the Nile is grown on a biodynamic farm without the use of pesticides or insecticides. We do not use any chemical finishes on our fabrics, only natural starches, whitening our fabric using an oxygen-based whitening process and using metal free color dyes, containing no harmful chemicals like AZO agents. Under the Nile is also one of a handful of companies that not only make, but stuff their toys with certified organic cotton. We do all of this to ensure that every one of our products is safe for your baby and good for the world.

Here, we have curated a collection of our 5 most popular organic & eco-friendly gifts for new babies.

1. Adorable Plush Veggies

These adorable veggies are one of our all-time best sellers. All of our Fruit and Veggie Toys are made (and stuffed) with 100% organic Egyptian cotton. They are also the focus of The 13 Village Project,  an initiative that brings certified Fair Trade work to women in rural villages in Egypt. They are provided safe, steady work with fair wages without having to leave their homes. Each of the 13 fruits and veggies are made by women of a different village.

2. Jungle Jubilee Gift Set

The Jungle Jubilee Gift Set is the perfect starter set for babies, and includes our organic Egyptian cotton convertible, a sleeping doll and skull hat in a cute unisex print.

    I need Baby’s clothes. Do you have any Catalog for Baby Girl? Have needs for ages 6 to 9 months but may consider also up to a year old. Upper clothes like blouse & the like, long & short pants and all must be safe for Baby’s use that are fire retardant, organics and the like. Thanks
