Did you hear? Baby fever around Will and Kate's little one could give the British economy an almost $400 million boost. So how can Brits and Anglophiles alike show their thanks? With a gift that is the perfect fit for a royal who is born to rule
Inglesina Classica Pram
Can’t you just picture the little prince or princess getting strolled around Buckingham Palace in this charming pram? Inspired by 19th-century British aristocracy, these beautiful strollers are handcrafted in Italy, using only the finest materials. A timeless and classic choice.
Baby's First Curl Box
This is almost too precious! Will and Kate can’t just tape Baby’s first lock of hair into their baby book—a true heir to the throne needs a proper place to store that cute little curl forever. Enter Tiffany’s Limoges porcelain box, hand painted in Paris. Serious ooh-la-la.
Prince Rocking Horse
Let the little knight ride away into his imagination on this regal rocking horse. Handcrafted and hand-decorated, this proud pony has heirloom written all over it. The silky satin mane and ears are begging to be touched, while the banner with gold tassels gives it that extra panache.
Charmeuse Silk Baby Blanket
If this came in an adult size, we’d be in it—right now. Made of 100 percent silk charmeuse by a company aptly named Kookoon (’cause Baby is going to want to be cocooned in it, all the time.) Made with a natural fiber interior, this beautiful blanket is hypoallergenic, and comes in three colors. Pure luxury.
Sleeping Beauty Princess Wagon
No ordinary set of wheels will do for afternoon walks through Keningston Gardens. This custom made wooden wagon can hold up to three children (a princess and her two favorite maidens?), and is made of non-toxic materials. Available in a variety of pretty pastels such as powder blue and soft pink, it also includes safety belts to keep passengers secure. All CPSC safety standards have been met.
Empire Sterling Silver Round Teething Ring/Rattle
A teething ring and rattle that’s perfect for little fingers to grasp and shake, and for little gums to drool on. Royal drool, of course. Available in pink, blue and white.
Elsa Peretti Padova Baby Set
Ever heard the expression “Born with a silver spoon in her mouth”? This grand three-piece gift set is a must-have for every prince and princess. Comes with a sterling silver cup, fork and spoon, and can (and should!) be engraved with Baby’s initials. This will surely be passed down for generations to enjoy.
An ordinary dollhouse for the future heir? Pssh! This wooden castle is perfect for boys and girls. Imaginations will certainly run wild in and out of this fortress, exploring towers, a drawbridge and more. Made in Belgium, it can easily be assembled, requiring no screws or nails.
Krysaliis Sterling Silver Baby Extensible Bangle
A gift for the little girl who has it all. This beautiful bangle is made of sterling silver, presented in a premium gift box. A perfect accessory for the princess to wear in her first official family photo.
Radish Moon Crown Princess Dish
Every princess needs an heirloom-quality dish in order to enjoy her all-natural, organic meals. (Only the best!) Although porcelain may not be the most practical, it is dishwasher and microwave safe. And who can resist this sweet scene of two bunnies holding hands and gazing at a dove? Making mealtime magical.
The Little Prince
A beloved story that has stood the test of time. This 70th anniversary edition comes as a hardcover book/CD set—perfect for bedtime reading, listening… and cuddling, of course. “One sees only with the heart. Anything essential is invisible to the eyes.” Need we say more?
