The Baby Bag Diary of Amber

The Baby Bag Diary of Amber

Welcome to the Baby Bag Diaries. A series where we share real stories from real mums exploring the transformational journey into motherhood, shining a spotlight on their favourite products and the pieces of advice they wish they had before having a baby. 

We sat down with Ben & Ellie Baby customer and new mum Amber to talk about appreciating the little things, having a baby during the lockdowns and why it’s important to pack your hospital bag!

7 newborn must haves you need to know about

The top baby items every parent needs. The last one is not what you think!

Welcoming your new baby into the world is one of the most exciting times of your life, yet it can also be one of the most daunting. 

As mums ourselves there are so many things we had to learn quickly in those first few months of our babies arriving earth side. Before having our own children, we had never even changed a nappy! There is a lot to learn and figure out so here is a list of a few things that we think are essential as new parents.

Christmas Gift Ideas 2022

It's that time of year again...

Less than 80 sleeps till Christmas. Fewer than 12 Fridays. The silly season is upon us.

They say there are two kinds of Xmas shoppers. The ones who have the Xmas shopping sorted in June and tree up by September and those of us who leave it till the mad rush of December or even Xmas eve.

I used to be the second kind of person. The one that left Christmas shopping until the last minute but since becoming a mum I've discovered I need to be far more organised. I want to be able to sit back and relax and enjoy the festivities with my little ones instead of being stressed out. 

Having decided to tick off my Christmas list in October this year, the next thing on my mind is gift ideas!

I love finding interesting and unique gift ideas, and the feeling of giving a gift that will be truly loved and appreciated, or at the very least something that will be used and won't end up in landfill. Giving the best gift just feels good. 

Here are some Christmas gift ideas for things you can get from Ben & Ellie based on who you're shopping for. From gifts to impress to stocking fillers, you can really get quite a bit of your shopping done here.
