With the coronation of King Charles, what better way to celebrate than with a royal-themed baby gift. Marking such a milestone moment with a themed royal gift or memorabilia means they can treasure a piece of history for years to come. Plus, with a once in a lifetime event taking place, a coronation keepsake is the perfect way to mark the arrival of a baby during the coronation year.

You may choose to give the gift at a coronation street party or celebration, perhaps along with a coronation outfit so that your little one is dressed fit for royalty as well. Alternatively, you could give a royal themed coronation present as a baby shower gift or new baby gift once the little one arrives, marking the year of their arrival with the year of the King's Coronation.

In honour of King Charles III's coronation, this once in a lifetime history book for kids tells the story of a young prince who has been heir to the throne since he was just three years old. Going beyond just the basic facts, young readers will love learning compelling and lesser-known information, like before becoming King, Charles was a magician, plus information like what being king actaully involves.

If you're looking for something really special to welcome your new baby this coronation year, there's little else on the market more fitting than a royal silver baby rattle. Made by Royal Selangor, a company renowned for highly skilled craftsmanship, this beautiful rattle is elegantly sculpted based on a victorian design. It depicts teddy bears going into the woods and makes a lovely, muted rattle sound when shaken. To top it all off, the rattle comes in a dark wood hinged box, making it the perfect present for your little royal.

Is there anything more traditional than a mini rocking chair (aka throne) for your little royal? Decorated with an ornate gold crown for that extra special touch, this rocking chair from My 1st Year's is perfect for little princes and princesses.

Bring Spencer Bear into the royal celebrations with this decorative soft toy. Ready for the coronation, he wears a crown on his head and features a Union Jack design on his paws.

The special edition Happyland King and Queen Coronation Carriage Set from Early Learning Centre is a great way to celebrate the Coronation of Charles III and Camilla as King and Queen!

These lovely keepsake framed medals are made from Mirrored Acrylic with options of either Silver or Gold, measuring 80mm in diameter. Tied with a red or blue ribbons option, you can personalise the name, age and message for a thoughtful keepsake.

Other coronation baby gift ideas

Finding the perfect coronation keepsake for babies is not always easy, though hopefully you've been inspired by our list above. The great thing about a keepsake is that it is the sentiment that matters. You may choose to give a keepsake that has the coronation date on it, a gift with a royal theme, or simply a gift that plays homage to the UK or specifically London. If baby is still young you may also choose a toy which has a coronation theme, such as the carriage set and dress up crown - something that they'll enjoy using rather than having hanging in their nursery. Ultimately, it's up to you!
