1. Obaby Stamford Classic Sleigh Cot Bed 3 Piece Nursery Set

Obaby Stamford Classic Sleigh Cot Bed 3 Piece Nursery Set in White

Arriving without the 9 reindeer, the Obaby Stamford Classic Sleigh Cot Bed 3 Piece Nursery Set would be perfect for your winter baby!

Including an adjustable cot bed with under-bed drawer and teething rails, a double wardrobe with open and closed storage, and a baby changing unit/chest of drawers – both with recessed handles and soft close doors and drawers – your furniture wishlist is covered!

Beautifully crafted with traditional scroll details throughout, the sleigh cot bed is suitable from birth up to the age of 4. Transforming into a toddler bed, when the time comes; just imagine their first stocking hanging at the end of their bed! It’s enough to make your heart melt!

Shown in snowy white; Warm Grey and Taupe Grey finishes are available too, so your nursery colour palette isn’t limited!

2. Obaby Stamford Mini Sleigh Cot Bed

Obaby Stamford Mini Sleigh Cot Bed in White

If you don’t have the space for a full-sized sleigh cot bed with matching storage, the Obaby Stamford Mini Sleigh Cot Bed offers the same benefits, just in a smaller package! Including protective teething rails, under-bed storage and an adjustable design – you’ll have all the same features but be saving on floor space!

It even transforms into a toddler bed, with or without guard rail side panels, seeing them through their first few Christmas’s/birthdays!

Finished in coordinating colours to the rest of the Stamford range, pick the pieces you think you’ll need most. We’d recommend the Stamford Space-saving Cot Top Changer. A compact alternative to a complete changing unit, simply secure onto the mini cot bed when it’s time for a cleanup! That’s your cue to hand over the reins to your co-parent… Baby has a ‘present’!

3. Obaby Savannah Swivel Glider Reclining Nursery Chair

Obaby Savannah Swivel Glider Reclining Nursery Chair

Another must-have from Obaby – the Savannah Swivel Glider Reclining Nursery Chair! Somewhere to nurse, bond, read bedtime stories or simply a spot to cuddle up together on wintery evenings (and in the early hours); both you and your newborn get to enjoy the gentle gliding motions.

With supportive foam cushions, a high seat back, a 360-degree swivel and recline function – you can put your feet up and find the most comfortable position.

Choose from Pebble Grey or Oatmeal upholstery to fit your final nursery colour scheme and style with cute cushions to complete the look!

4. Vox Concept Nursery Dresser

Vox Concept Nursery Dresser

Fitting into any nursery theme, whether that’s a winter wonderland or not, the Vox Concept Nursery Dresser comes available in 6 colour options so you’re free to pick your scheme.

Including recessed handles, three drawers, an open shelf and a closed cupboard, there are options for all of your essentials. We’d recommend keeping your most-used products on the shelf so they’re quick and easy to grab and everything else can be neatly hidden away.

Add the removable changing top to create a baby changing station. With everything on hand, you’ll quickly become a nappy-changing, cloth-wrapping whizz!

Recreate the look with alpine forest wallpaper, star soft accessories and the Kids Concept Neo Rocking Mammoth as the final finishing touch! It’ll feel festive, but can easily be restyled when your little one gets older!

6. Snuzpod 4 Starter Pack

Snuzpod 4 Starter Pack in Dove Grey
Snuzpod 4 Bedside Crib in Natural

A bedside crib is the perfect first bed for a Christmas baby! As it’s recommended that your newborn sleep close by for the first few months, a co-sleeper crib offers added reassurance to help you and your baby get a better night’s sleep.

Much more than just a bedside crib, offering the option to use as a standalone crib, a removable bassinet, or a co-sleeper cot – the SnuzPod 4’s clever and stylish 3-in-1 design has been made with you and your baby in mind. If your baby needs soothing in the early hours, you needn’t leave your warm and comfortable bed to comfort or feed them. Simply lower the mesh side panel and you’re an arm’s length away from one another or gently rock them to sleep with the specially designed stand!

Including a breathable mattress, a waterproof mattress protector, SnuzCloud sleep aid and two fitted sheets, we’ve bundled in extra bedtime essentials, so you’ll all be sleeping like babies! We give you the gift of a good night’s rest this Christmas!

7. SnuzPouch Sleeping Bag 2.5 Tog in Cloud Nine​

SnuzPouch Sleeping Bag 2.5 Tog in Cloud Nine

Baby sleep specialists recommend keeping cots, cribs and moses baskets fuss-free to ensure little sleepyheads are safe while they’re snoozing. This can make regulating your baby’s temperature trickier in the colder months.

The cotton SnuzPouch Sleeping Bag 2.5 Tog is a safe alternative to traditional bedding. Designed with poppers and zips, keeping arms free, the SnuzPouch promotes your baby’s natural movements. And if a night-time nappy change is needed, no need to disturb your baby too much, simply unzip the side panel for a quick and easy cleanup.

You might not be tucked up in bed, but your baby will be warm and snuggly at least!

8. Festive Accessories

Bloomingville Bankuan Grass Penguin Storage Basket

It’s time for the Christmas Nursery styling! If your due date is this December, why not lean into the festive theme with just the accessories? This way, you don’t have to completely re-decorate once the nursery has been outgrown. Simply incorporate the nursery décor and toys into a new theme or change them out once your little one is ready for an update!

If winter wonderland is what you’re after, we’d pick out the Kids Polar Bear Coat Hook, Kids Concept Pull Along Train and Little Bird Told Me Mishka Push Along Toy to style around your chosen nursery furniture and bring the whole look to life! Despite not belonging to the North Pole, the Bloomingville Penguin Storage Basket could be used as a toy box or laundry basket.

These accessories don’t scream Christmas, so you can easily get away with keeping them later down the line!
