When a couple like George and Amal Clooney have twins it could well be difficult to know what to buy for the newborns. But, naturally, their friends and family have lavished wonderful gifts on Ella and Alexander, who were born earlier in June.
Hello! magazine has revealed some of the presents purchased for the new parents and their babies, revealing that Amal’s mother bought organic cotton sleepsuits for the twins.
While the twins’ grandmother opted for clothing, George Clooney’s business partner Rande Gerber and his wife Cindy Crawford reportedly sent an entirely practical gift - an enormous delivery of nappies.
Oprah Winfrey, a friend of the couple, recently told Entertainment Tonight what her choice of gift for the new arrivals was.
The magazine quoted her as saying: “My favourite baby gift to give is the baby’s own book club.” She explained that this involves getting the baby’s name, putting it on a range of baby books and sending them to the family.
When friends or family have a new baby, it can be hard to know where to begin with baby gifts, especially if you don’t have children of your own.
However, you could take some inspiration from a new baby box scheme that’s being launched in Scotland later this year. Every new baby born in the country from August will receive one of the boxes, which is packed with essential items like baby grows, a changing mat, a bath towel and reusable nappies and liners.
