13 Brands that have inspired ‘name day’ gifts from #DotToDotLondon

Today the 1st February is Chance Maximillian’s name day. What is that I hear you say? A name day is a tradition that is held in countries such as Sweden, where one celebrates a day of the year associated with their given name...very similar to a birthday. My little king is celebrating his first name day today (1st February Max, Maximillian) and at nearly 8 weeks old, I reverted to Dot to Dot London to find original presents to gift him.

Dot to Dot London a biannual design led children’s brand tradeshow that started yesterday 31st of January until today; if like me you have missed this month’s show, there will be another one, thank goodness!
I have shortlisted my favourite brands and products, and as they are all so beautiful I am finding it hard to pick just one gift and may end up buying them all. Have a look below and let me know your thoughts.
1.My Baby Name Is ‘Gabriel’ this grey ECO certified cotton sleeping bag for 0-6 months

2. Organic Zoo Navy Blue HI Sweatshirt made from 100% organic cotton and designed in the UK


3. Tiba + Marl ELWOOD black faux leather unisex changing backpack, perfect when carrying baby on the front, and extremely stylish.

10. Dandy Star pack of 6 greeting cards; we are meant to celebrate a ‘namnsdag’ after all and Chance Maximillian can keep these as a memento of his first name day


11. Jax & Hedley black pocket onesie made from 100% cotton and handmade. I remember searching for black onesies when I was pregnant that would fit with our monochrome theme at home, but settled on white as I couldn’t find black, so I am incredibly pleased with this onesie.

12. Mainio motif bodysuit in off white (currently sold out!) made from 95% organic cotton.
13. Moobles and Toobles ‘hi’ baby bodysuit with lime trimming…I mean how cute is this?!
