Unique Gifts For Babies
Babies are always inundated with new clothes, sleepsuits, and soft toys during their first year, so you may be thinking, "What more could they possibly need?" Splash About has lots of gorgeous answers to this question, from snuggly, warm baby swimwear to reusable swim nappies and cute pool and bath toys. See below for our top suggestions:
Happy Nappy Duo
The Happy Nappy Duo is a great gift for eco-conscious parents. The only swim nappy a baby will need, it is fully reusable and proven to stop embarrassing leaks into the pool. With the Duo you are giving a world exclusive gift, the only swim nappy to be lined with silver! The inner nappy within the Duo is made with silver ion technology that effectively kills germs and bacteria, thereby protecting the baby and the other swimmers in the pool, whilst the outer nappy is the Happy Nappy we all know and love, effective at keeping solids contained. The Duo is available in a beautiful range of designs that match or complement our baby swimming range, so you could even add a changing mat or Baby Wrap to your gift to make it extra special.
Warm In One Wetsuit
Gift a Warm in One wetsuit and you are gifting a hug in a suit. The Warm in One is designed for babies from birth to 2 years old. Lined in cosy fleece which will keep babies warm, both in and out of the water, the Warm In One is a full coverage wetsuit which has been proven to extend the amount of time a baby can spend happily in the water. This means less stress for mum and dad and a happier experience for all involved. New parents will really thank you for this one! Available in a range of sizes and designs to suit all baby boys and girls. Pair with a matching Happy Nappy for a complete gift.
Happy Nappy Wetsuit
A Splash About bestseller, the Happy Nappy Wetsuit is bound to raise smiles around the tree. A thoughtful and practical present, the Happy Nappy Wetsuit is designed to provide a fantastic experience for both children and parents. Made from 1mm neoprene and incorporating the Happy Nappy, it will keep babies warm and leak protected, whilst parents and carers can relax knowing their baby is warm and protected from inconvenient leaks into the pool. While it's the perfect Christmas gift, the Happy Nappy Wetsuit is versatile enough for year-round use. It's not just for the holiday season; it's a gift that keeps on giving throughout the year.
After Swim Waterproof Onesie
The cutest, most practical gift, the Waterproof Onesie is guaranteed to receive the “aww” response on Christmas morning. Whilst originally designed to help with the changing room routine after swimming, it can also be worn on a day-to-day basis as a cosy all in one raincoat. Fully lined from hood to ankle in luxurious fleece, it is super cosy and keeps children toastie and warm. The outer material protects against the rain and wind and a large hood helps keep little heads warm and dry.
The After Swim Waterproof Onesie is versatile, practical and adorable and makes a truly special gift for babies and toddlers.
Bath & Pool Mirror
These super cute mirrors are a unique gift idea for babies who already have everything! Although they are designed for use in the bath or pool, they can also be used to entertain babies during tummy time or during nappy changing time.
Made from super lightweight foam, they are shaped specifically for little hands to hold. We all know babies love to look at themselves in mirrors, so these portable bath and pool mirrors are ideal for throwing in a changing bag and taking anywhere to distract an unhappy baby. This is particularly useful for swimming lessons, especially if they are reluctant swimmers. Lay baby back and show them their own face, they will soon be splashing and joining in the fun.
Our Pufferfish Bath Toys make perfect stocking fillers for babies and younger children. Designed with no holes that would cause mould build up inside and painted with food grade paint, they are safe for little hands and mouths.
The Pufferfish Flip & Float toys bob along on the surface of the water, encouraging babies to reach out and move towards them in the water. Bright and colourful, they keep baby’s attention during swimming sessions. Available as a pack of 3.
Our Pufferfish Sensory Swim Toys are available individually or as a pack of 3. Their sensory design appeals to young babies who love to grab and chew them. Perfect for bath time as well as in the swimming pool, they will light up little faces at Christmas and beyond.
Gifts For Toddlers and Older Children
Splash About caters for all ages and we have some lovely stocking filler ideas for toddlers and older children too. Here are some of our top picks:
Go Splash Swim Vest
The Go Splash Swim Vest makes a thoughtful yet practical gift for children who are not yet swimming independently. Designed to aid children on their learn to swim journey, the Swim Vest holds them in the correct swimming position, whilst providing buoyancy support. It is an ideal gift for families about to head off for some winter sun as it is lightweight and packs flat, leaving plenty of room for all the other holiday essentials. Available from ages 1 to 6, in a variety of bright and fun designs to help children stand out from the crowd.
Encourage children to practice their swimming technique with our Shark Kickboard. Suitable for children aged 2 to 6 years, the shark design will delight youngsters on Christmas morning! A perfect gift for the child who has everything!
Splash About Pool and Dive Toys offer an exciting way to encourage play and water skills development. Surprise your loved ones with these colourful toys at Christmas and watch them enjoy hours of fun in the water well into the new year.
Toddlers will love the cute neoprene Pufferfish Splash Balls, a cuddly toy you can get wet! Available in 3 colours, they are shaped for easy throwing and catching but can also act as a comforter whilst in the water.
Our Pufferfish Dive Sticks are a great gift idea for those who enjoy trips to the pool. Bright and easily seen underwater, children love to play throw and retrieve with these cute pufferfish friends.
