Christmas Gifts for New Parents: Handpicked by our team

With the autumn leaves falling and the evenings growing dark, Christmas is suddenly in our sights and with it the biggest task of all - Christmas gifts. Whether you are an expecting mum to be, a new parent (congratulations to you) or looking for gifts for a new mum or gifts for a new dad, we have the perfect selection of gifts that any parent would be delighted with under the tree this Christmas. To make the daunting task of searching through the practicalities of each design, we have asked the Storksak team to tell us their favourite Storksak bag and the reasons why they would make a perfect gift for you or a loved one this Christmas.

Alyssa Stroller Bag

Mel, Co-Founder
“The Alyssa Stroller Bag has to be my go-to favourite of all time. It looks amazing on your stroller or wearing it cross body, and it's the perfect size. Amazing features; insulated bottle sleeve, room for all the necessary stuff for short trips, and the front zipped pocket is secure for my phone. This really is the handy bag all parents need and the perfect gifts for new parents this Christmas.”

St James Leather

Emma, Senior Designer & E-commerce
“For me, the best gifts are luxurious and something a bit special that you might not be able to justify treating yourself too. That’s why I think our leather changing bags are the perfect gift for any mum-to-be or new parent and our St James Leather is the ultimate choice. All our leather baby bags are designed for stylish mamas who want all the quality, all the function and of course, all the style. Made from durable leather, these bags will stand up to parent life and age beautifully - a real investment that will last for one, two or even more babies. The function is never compromised though, with convertible straps, a luxe cushioned changing mat, discreetly positioned insulated compartments for milk bottles and sooo many pockets. You’re sure to get compliments galore when carrying one of these, as well as amazed faces exclaiming “Wow - that’s a changing bag!?”

Alyssa Gunmetal

Lisa, Customer Service Manager
“I just love the Alyssa Gunmetal backpack, the bag is so comfortable to wear with the padded backpack straps. It looks sleek and classy with the matching accessories and the material is so soft to touch. My favourite part of the bag is just how much you can fit in, with lots of inside pockets and the outside pockets with zips, it is perfect for fitting in all the items I need for a day out. I’ve also used the bag on multiple occasions as an overnight bag as you can fit so much inside. The way the lid opens makes it easy to access all the items stored in the bag. This is by far a really worthwhile purchase and can be used time and again, even when your little ones grow and up and you just want a lovely looking, reliable bag.”

Alyssa 4-Wheel Cabin Carry-On

Lucy, Merchandising Manager
“I think the Alyssa Cabin Carry-On would make the most perfect Christmas present for a loved one, as not only is it great for a hospital bag but it can also be used for years to come. This wheeled carry-on has the most amazing internal organiser system and the luxurious leather makes it super stylish. Plus is matches quite a few of our Storksak bestselling styles, the perfect gift for the most fashionable mum to be!”

Stroller Organiser Luxe

Jemma, Social Media & Marketing Manager
“I think when it comes to finding gifts for mum you simply can’t go wrong with our stroller organiser. Whether you are looking for someone who is expecting or someone who is already a parent with little ones, every parent will benefit from having a stroller organiser readily attached to their pram. Not only does it provide extra space to the pram storage, it allows extra security for small items such as a phone, keys and can also house drinks in the upright position too. This is the perfect gift for mum for under £50.”

Eco Backpack Toffee

Frances, Merchandising Assistant
I think the Eco Backpack would make a fab gift for a new parent. Both colours are lovely, the bag itself is super spacious with lots of pockets that make the bag really handy. The backpack also comes with some helpful insulated pouches and a changing mat. It can be worn as a backpack and also put on a pushchair, the bag also comes with a luggage slip on the back, which means it can be placed securely on a suitcase making it the perfect bag for travelling. The backpack is a style that can be worn by anyone… and it’s made from recycled materials which will earn you extra brownie points from Father Christmas!”

St James Scuba

Suzi, Co-Founder
“I personally love the St James Scuba. It not only looks luxurious but ticks all the boxes for being a really practical changing bag. It is lightweight and you can wear it over the shoulder or as a backpack or just use the grab handle. I particularly love the secret pocket at the front, which is easily accessible for phones and keys. The matching accessories are also a bonus.”

Hero Quilt

Sherina, Senior Designer

 The Hero Quilt is a great versatile unisex style making it the perfect gift for new or seasoned dads. Everyone likes getting 2 for 1 and with this bag you get that and more. The clever convertible shelf allows you to turn the inside of the bag into 2 compartments, with a separate zipped opening for the lower section. Great for keeping items like snacks, toys, dirty clothes, gym and swimwear separate. Not only does it boast incredible organising features, but it also comes with a machine washable padded change mat and insulated FAB (food and bottle) bag, everything that you need for busy days with a newborn, toddler or multiples. What's not to love!”
