Feeling special with Peter Jackson The Jeweller and Links of London

And sometimes it can be tricky to know what to buy a newborn baby that’s a little bit different or a little bit special. Clothes can be great, but you don’t know what the parents have already bought or how big the baby will be (or the sex in some instances!) and toys have to be age appropriate.
