The lovely guys at Snuggle Seat gifted me two Snuggle Seats in return for sharing them with you. I would have shared them anyway though as they look amazing!
What do you buy for a new baby? Clothes they will quickly grow out of? A wrist rattle or teddy that may be identical to one from someone else? Or perhaps you ask the parents what they need and buy something useful? Whatever you buy the gift it can be a hard choice.
We have friends who are expecting twins, how exciting, but what do you buy parents of twins? I was tempted to just buy them a bottle of wine as they will surely need it but the reality is you want to buy a useful gift and one that is a nice gift. No one wants to buy nappies or bottles however useful they are, do they? This is when I came across the Snuggle Seat.
What is the Snuggle Seat?
You would be forgiven for not knowing what a Snuggle Seat is as they are quite new. If like me you have a 13 year old a lot seems to have changed. It is basically a beanbag for babies and young children that lasts until they are around 8 years old or 30kg.
Carefully designed to keep your baby safe it comes with the harness attached however a replacement cover is also included without the harness for when they are bigger. It has won awards and I am not surprised it looks so stylish and feels comfortable for a baby/child too.
Why I love the Snuggle Seat
For our friends who are expecting twins I thought this would be the perfect gift. They have other children so don’t want a house full of unnecessary useless items but ones they can really benefit from.
I personally can not even begin to imagine how hard having twins is. However, I imagine these could be a total lifesaver! Once one baby is strapped safely in you can go ahead and feed or change the other.
I love that the designs are all the sort which could really look good in any house and for any age child. They are simple but effective. There is a huge variety of designs available you are sure to find one that is perfect for your baby or the family you are gifting it to.
The top of the Snuggle seat is not only soft and comfortable but also well padded with the zip well concealed so little legs don’t catch it. Whilst the base and sides are made from hard-wearing scuff-free materials and the base is slip-resistant so you really can’t ask for any more.
The perfect gift?
Personally, I think it is a great gift because not only is it useful but it is lovely too. It is something that will really help the parents out when they need to put the baby down safely and even if they have a bouncy chair, swing or similar this is different and has different uses. We all know babies take to some things more than others!
At less than £40 it will be a well-used gift. Our friends who are expecting twins will love them I am sure. The quick-release buckle can be undone with one hand too which I can only imagine will be handy when lifting and manoeuvring two wriggly babies!
