When looking for the perfect gift for a new baby, many people want to select a gift that is both unique and that will be useful, and appreciated. These three gifts fit the bill and when buying from these sellers, you'll be supporting small women-run businesses here in Spain!
Crinkle-books are a favorite among the baby crowd. This one is full of bright colors, iconic places from around Madrid and it's got a utility strap to hang it on a backpack, diaper bag, or stroller while out and about.
Carmen, creator of Noox City Kids Madrid, realized the amount of quality Madrid-themed items for babies was severely lacking and she decided to take charge of fixing that!
Whether you're visiting Madrid and want to take home a souvenir, live here as an expat, or have lived here all your life, now you can get a little soft, crinkle book full of Madrid's most famous locations.
This book features images of:
Puerta de Alcalá
El Oso y El Madroño
El Palacio de Cristal
El Mercado de San Miguel
A skyline view of the city!
In addition to soft baby books, Noox City Kids Madrid sells baby onesies with a cat dressed as a chulapo (the historical traditional dress of Madrileños) which are a fun play on how Madrileños are called "gatos" or cat. There's also a cute little pigeon squeaky soft toy that can go with the soft book and can also hang on the stroller!
If you're looking for a stuffed animal or rattle that is adorable and full of character - take a look at TiniWini designs on Instagram. She sells directly on IG so you can get in touch with her there and if you don't see what you like on any of the images, she might still be able to help you with a made-to-order crochet animal.
Valentina is a Spanish woman who took up crochet one day and never put it down! She makes these lovely little (and big!) amigurimis with plenty of love and talent. Since these are all made to order, keep in mind delivery time may be a couple weeks, but having something so unique and special is worth the wait!
Many babies use soothers (pacifiers/dummies) so if that's the case for the baby you want to give a personalized gift to - this soother clip is a fantastic option!
You can choose the colors and the name that will come on this gorgeous paci clip comprised of silicon, wooden, and fabric non-toxic beads.
This is an especially useful option for babies who might not have a traditional Spanish name which makes it difficult to find anything with a name like this in a physical shop.
Charlie's Footsteps is full of practical, elegant items for new mothers and babies. Clarissa founded Charlie's Footsteps to create a space for women to find their people and easily get baby and motherhood products that might not be popular yet in Spain.
In addition to a gift for the new baby, including something for the new parents like a gift card for a meal delivery service or a postpartum doula may be much appreciated as well!

Giving birth is one of the most vulnerable moments in a person's life. There are many factors to consider at all times. The support of a doula from home to hospital adds an additional layer of support for both the birthing person and partner. Continuous care and individualized support both increase the likelihood of satisfaction with one's birth experience, regardless of the birth outcome.
