Do you have loved ones you want to shower with gifts but you don’t want to contribute to the environmental fall-out of our culture’s annual Christmas spurge? Or maybe you want to give gifts that don’t contain toxic chemicals to a special little person in your life?
If you’ve landed on the Natracare website, it’s likely that you’re a green-minded person, so we’ve come up with a few guides to eco-friendly gift giving which we hope you find useful.
Whether you’re a new mum, have a new family member, or thinking about a new addition to your friends family, it’s always nice to buy babies gifts for Christmas.

Toys are a great way for newborns to learn and interact with the world, providing sensory stimulation to develop their fine motor skills, logic and spatial awareness. When buying new toys, remember to keep their bodies safe from toxic materials! The toys we’ve chosen are from ethical brands that have carefully chosen the kinds of materials they use to make their products.
