Gap has always been one of my main “go to” shops for Richmond Toddler’s clothes, pretty much since birth. So I was particularly excited to be invited to a bloggers breakfast last week to view the exclusive new babyGap collection inspired by Beatrix Potter’s Peter Rabbit™. The limited-edition collection, in stores and online now, presents a range of clothes and gifts for girls and boys from newborn to 24 months and if you have children in that age range, or are looking for a gorgeous present for a friend with kids, I urge you to take a look because there are SO many beautiful beautiful things!
As Allegra is now pretty much firmly wearing age 2-3 year old clothes, I decided I would browse the collection with the new baby in mind: particularly because, as I mentioned recently, I haven’t actually bought anything new for baby number two as we have so so many clothes from Allegra to hand down to her that it’s seemed crazy to buy anything new. But, I figured a few little treats, just for her, were probably in order, if not least for her first days in the world!
Well, there are so many beautiful things to chose from, it was hard to pick out my favourites. An assortment of soft knit graphic bodysuits, brightly coloured denim, whimsical one-pieces and patterned dresses. For baby girls, highlights include coloured and printed denim (£14.95), cable knit cardigans (£16.95), and billowing dresses in chambray eyelet and pink bunny print designs (£17.95):
For boys, key items include Peter’s Jacket (£16.95), a navy chunky knit cardigan and one-pieces in chambray and plaid (£16.95):
There are some super special pieces for newborns too, with adorable Peter Rabbit illustrated bodysuits that are sold separately or as sets, which would make for perfect new baby gifts (prices range from £8.95 – £27.95).
I was really impressed by the collection and not just because of the gorgeous designs and variety within the range, both for girls and boys (lots of my mummy friends with boys are always telling me that they struggle to find interesting boy clothes, well if your boy is under 24 months, then here they are!), but also because the fabrics are really soft and good quality too: I think they’d most likely wash really well also, which as we know is a particularly important quality!
I was very generously gifted a £50 voucher as a thank-you for coming along to the blogger breakfast, to spend at Gap, and I wasted no time in using it to stock up on some adorable new baby items for Richmond Baby number two. Here’s my haul and my top picks:
Anything I bought that falls into the 0-3 months age range will be packed into my hospital bag ready for baby to be dressed in as part of her first few days wardrobe: so keep an eye out for the pics of baby modelling the new range soon!

A big thank you to Gap for inviting me along and for the generous gift voucher, I’m delighted with my new baby goodies
