What do you buy for the mama who already has everything? Whether they are your own children or as a gift, newborns can be tricky to buy for.

Having had my second baby boy recently, I discovered that not only do I have all the big stuff from my first like the car seat, cot, toys, I also have a wardrobe stuffed full of blue clothes. To give him something of his own that wasn’t a hand-me-down from his big brother, I turned to handcrafted items in Dubai.

Here, I share my top finds so you too can buy the mama and baby who has everything a beautiful gift.

Personalised Prints Collage

Personalised Print for the Nursery: Personalised Prints

Lisa is an extremely talented graphic designer who set up Personalised Prints earlier this year. An array of bold and colourful designs, all of which can be personalised with babies name, weight, date of birth. They’re a wonderful touch to any nursery and a step away from the generic pastel boy/girl prints you get.

Prices start at AED 260.

Sharky Knows Collage

Handmade Crochet Blanket: Sharky Knows

Every mama knows you can never have enough blankets for your baby. Sharky Knows was set up by a mama with a passion for crochet with love sewn into every stitch. These amazingly soft beautiful blankets are each one of a kind allowing you to choose your colours and design, making each one unique for mama and baby.

If a blanket isn’t your thing, and it might not be out in Dubai, then Sharky Knows also crochets animal loveys, super soft and super cute every baby will fall in love with these (and mamas too)

Prices for loveys start around AED 120 and blankets AED 300.

A nursing cover: Love by Jo

Strictly speaking not for the baby but a lovely present for the breast feeding mama who wants to get out and about again but is struggling with the draping of the muslins to cover up.

Love by Jo showcases beautiful gem coloured designs in soft jersey. Wider than the average cover with a curved neckline for you to see your baby, this cover combines functionality with style, a must have for any feeding mama’s.

Prices start at AED 180.


Breastfeeding and Babywearing necklace: Babylu Designs

A funky fashion accessory for mama whilst being a functioning safe toy for baby.  This necklace allows your baby to focus on their task in hand, whether that be feeding or watching the world go by, without grabbing your sunglasses and breaking them.  For the third time this month (true story, my husband has now stopped repairing my necklace until the boys are older).

Bold and beautiful designs by Babylu, handcrafted by this talented mama from all natural juniper and beech wooden beads hand tied with 100% crocheted cotton, you are sure to want one to match every outfit.

Prices start from AED 75.

Beautiful handmade clothes: Maddy & Eva

And if you wanted to head down the traditional route of giving clothes as gifts, why not shy away from the chain stores and browse around the beautiful Maddy and Eva.

Designed with the Dubai heat in mind, this twin mama has a whole range of boy and girl designs. Think less of your SpongeBob Square Pants and Frozen motifs, more towards the traditional button down shirts and adorable rompers in a range of fabrics from floral to polka dot. Clothes that are designed for children, with children in mind, hard wearing yet beautiful.

Prices start from AED 120.

All beautiful and all handcrafted in Dubai; what more could a mama ask for?

‘Being a new Mum definitely comes with its challenges. I have moments that I completely love it and think I've got this Mum stuff down then comes the dreaded nights and I have moments that I doubt my capability to get through all the crying and tiredness.’ 💕💕💕💕. via @gemma_cheung - we can so relate, that’s motherhood summed up perfectly, an emotional roller coaster!
