  1. Do you love Sloths? We do, I mean I do...I haven't asked Mr F if he does, it's not really a topic that comes up often around the dinner table! Munchkin likes all things cute so I guess he does too! Anyway, back to Sloths, I love them, they are fast becoming one of my favourite animals on the planet, if not the favourite. They are so adorable, and cuddly, and they look so friendly and docile. They live life on the slow lane, and that is where I'm comfortable too. One of the reasons we went self-employed was to get out of the rat-race and calm down a bit!

    I was talking to a lovely lady on Facebook called Verity who makes fab buttons that can be added to anything from paperclips to hair bobbles and she has agreed to collaborate with me on a Sloth Gift Set. So please do keep your eyes peeled for this awesome Sloth Collaboration with Verity's page  Man Made by George.

    To wet your appetite, Verity has also made a very special Sloth necklace (matches one of our Sloth mugs pictured below), priced at £3.50 plus £2 postage. And this adorable Sloth keyring is priced at £2.90 plus £2 postage. Head over to Man Made by George if you'd like to nab them and let them know that Daffodili sent you!

    Verity has also agreed to be one of Daffodili's creative partners and will be creating Welsh vibe gifts for the shop. Watch this space on that front, it's going to be amazing. If any of you are artisans who create items that could be sold in our 'coming soon' Welsh vibe / language section (commission-based) please do get in touch to discuss.

    Again, back to Sloths! We have access to so many sloth gifts, it's unbelievable. If you are interested in any of the sloth gifts mentioned in this blog post and you can't find it on the website, please do get in touch either by emailing [email protected] or get in touch via our facebook page Daffodili Gifts.

    Let's start with Mugs. We all start our day with a mug of something so it seems a good place to get started on our Sloth extravaganza!

    We also have cute sloth money boxes too. If you're thinking of giving someone a monetary gift, put it in a funky money box, so much cuter and practical than just in an envelope!

    And how about some cute little sloth keyrings?! Our boy is nearly 4 and he loves keyrings, that is what he collects, and I don't think he's the only keyring collector in the World! Fb gifts for collectors, children stocking fillers, party bag fillers, adults who like sloths and / or cute things!

    We can't forget the sloth cushions! They lend themselves so well to being cushions, I can just imagine a little (or big!) one resting their heads so snuggly on one of these.

  2. Some of you may know that Daffodili's business used to be baby gifts, for many many years, it was always baby gifts and we loved it. But as with every business, we needed to adapt, and give new types of gifts a go. When I found my quirky gifts supplier, I intented to cater for children, but then I saw the novelty toilet brushes and the beautiful dragon ashcatcher, and the awesome funky shaped handle mugs and I just had to branch out to adults too. We never forgot about our baby gifts though. Mr F carried on selling them on our Amazon shop, also called Daffodili, so we still sell our snug baby blankets, cute baby towels, special shawls (fab as Christening gifts) and some adorable baby clothes too.

    I am slowly adding more baby gifts to the shop that can be personalised in either English or Welsh, so keep your eyes peeled. But in the meantime, please do check out our Amazon shop, you might just find that perfect gift!

    I asked on my Facebook page for quotes about the best gift you have given or received and the wonderful Sonya from The Stag & The Unicorn replied with the most precious of responses "The best gift I ever gave to someone who had a new baby was love and support". This is hands down the best gift anyone can give, and the best gift you can receive.

    When our nearly 4-year old was born, we were blown away by the most fabulous gifts. Our lovely friends actually prepared a meal for us, a tub full of chilli con carne cooked from scratch and a couple of pouches of microwave rice...we were living on something silly like one sandwich a day in those first couple of months, especially as Eifion had undiagnosed silent reflux (exhausting!) so we really appreciated having a proper meal.

    My sister-in-law gave us a hamper full of snacks and some little bottles of wine and beers, and even added in a couple of plastic wine glasses, so practical with little ones around! We absolutely valued the personalised gifts he had, it was so magical to see his name on things, made it all very real. My Auntie and Uncle gave us a pack of nappies, which was an awesome gift!! My sisters gave me a special ring with Eifion's birth stone on it, I value it just as much as my engagement and wedding rings.

    My Mother is a very good knitter and she knitted him a gorgeous green blanket, this was his indoors blanket. We had a stripey, funky blanket from my in-laws neighbours, and this became his outdoors blanket! We were given so much more than we could have ever imagined, way too many to list! But they are all still so special to us, and we love that we still play a part in someone's gift to a new baby, it makes us feel all warm and fuzzy! 

    I once wrote a poem to one of my best friend's new baby as if it were from our son, I enjoyed giving that, a truly unique gift. But I do enjoy giving baby blankets as gifts, they are always so handy, and I love seeing the babies out and about in their prams with one of our blankets keeping them nice and warm!

    What was the best gift you were given when you had a baby? And what do you feel is the best gift you have given? 

    Thank you
