Sustainable gifts every cloth nappy user will adore


Here at Real Nappies for London we love celebrating the Winter Festivities with gifts that friends, family (and let’s be honest, sometimes ourselves!) will find useful and beautiful. We scour local charity shops, local give and take events and social media groups for preloved goodies and we also love supporting small businesses like our wonderful, partnered suppliers who stock gorgeous sustainable gifts.   

If you have used our voucher scheme to get started with reusable nappies or know someone else who has, you might have found that there are accessories that can make your experience with them even more convenient.  We’ve had a little look online to see what lovely things we will be putting on our shopping list! 

Wet Bags

Wet bags are a great way to store used nappies either at home or when you’re out and about. Double pockets are brilliant for storing clean & dirty nappies or cloth wipes. Try: Baba + Boo Medium Nappy Bag (Robins), as part of their “Winter Cosy Collection” [via Babipur]

Reusable Wet Wipes

You can never have enough reusable wipes and the rainbow colour set would brighten anyone’s December. Try: Cheeky Wipes Reusable Wipes Organic Cotton Rainbow [via The Nappy Lady]

Mother-ease AirFlow Wraps

These wraps are a popular choice for their magic containment ability whilst providing an airy fit. Shop Mother-ease AirFlow Wraps [via Lizzie’s Real Nappies]

Extra Nappy Inserts

Having a few extra inserts is always useful, especially over the colder months when they may take a little longer to dry. Hemp inserts are very absorbent and slim, these Thirsties inserts are a game changer!

Little Lamb bamboo inserts are an indispensable part of any nappy kit, great for when they are teeny and for adding that little local boost to perfect containment when they are bigger too.

Swim Nappy

Reusable swim nappies are an essential accessory for getting babies in the pool for a dip. Try: Tots Bots Swim Nappy (get them before they’re all gone!) [via Natural Baby Shower]

Nappy Laundry Service

Why not gift a few weeks of a washable nappy laundry service and save a busy parent some washing! Try either: Nappy Ever After or Number One for Nappies

Nappy Pod Bag

These cuboid shape wet bags are so useful for any of your reusable accessories and have countless other uses well beyond potty training. Try: Bells Bumz Nappy Pod [via The Nappy Gurus]

Bedwetter Pants

For older toddlers who are practicing their night-time training these bedtime pants can come in really handy. Try: Mother-ease Bedwetter Pants [via The Washable Nappy Company]

Terra Gaia Aleppo Olive Oil Soap

This is a stunning natural soap amazing for getting your skin, nappies and other delicates sparkling. [via B-eco-me]
