Peter Rabbit Gifts for Baby

Updated on September 17, 2014

Beatrix Potter's Peter Rabbit gifts for Christenings and Baby Showers.

Beatrix Potter's Peter Rabbit is a much loved children's character, and a Peter Rabbit gift is perfect for a Christening gift or Baby shower gift. These gifts are also perfect for baby's first Birthday.

The Tale of Peter Rabbit has been read by generations of children all over the world. A Japanese friend tell me that Japanese children learn to read English with these books.

If you are looking for a Christening gift, or a baby shower gift, I think these are lovely gifts.

These gifts would also be good ideas for babies and children's birthdays.

Beatrix Potter's Peter Rabbit book was first published in 1902.The classic tale of Peter Rabbit. his mother and brothers, has enchanted children ever since. It is the basis of a really good gift idea for a baby.

My top choices would be the books themselves, or some of the collectibles associated with them. The china is something I love.

My children we given Peter Rabbit china sets for Christening gifts, and they still have them 30 years later!

There are, of course, the Peter Rabbit Books. The Tale of Peter Rabbit is the most famous of Beatrix Potter's books.

Here my top suggestions for Christening gifts and baby shower gifts.

Peter Rabbit china Christening gifts

These china gifts are very welcome gift ideas at Christenings and Baby showers

I still have the mugs, plates and egg cups that my sons were given 30 years ago. I'm now expecting my first grandchild, and have passed my son's mug on to him for the new baby.

They did also have a money box, but that hasn't lasted!

This Wedgwood china is top quality, and the designs use the original drawings by Beatrix Potter.

(the picture here is of the china available from amazon via the link below)

You may find other china, using adaptations of the original Beatrix Potter Peter Rabbit designs, but I prefer the originals for a Christening or baby gift.

There have been some amendments to the original china , but the basic design has stood the test of time.

Whichever you chose, the parents of the baby will treasure the gift. I would say, use the Peter Rabbit china - don't just keep it on a shelf! This china mug set is really is sturdy and practical. It can be a baby's favorite Christening gift.

Hill Top is 5 miles from my home

Although Beatrix Potter grew up in London, her family loved the Lake District and spent many holidays there. When Beatrix Potter began to earn money from her writing, she took the chance to buy her own home in the Lake District. She bought Hill Top in 1905.

The Tale of Peter Rabbit- the original Beatrix Potter Peter Rabbit Book - The Classic Peter Rabbit Book,a great gift idea for baby.

Lots of people have kept the books from their childhood.

Give the Original Tale of Peter Rabbit, a boxed set, or a modern version of the classic for your baby shower or Christening gift.

I still have the copy of the Tale of Peter Rabbit that I received as a Christening gift 60 years ago!

In fact, I have most of the Beatrix Potter books that were given to me as a child.I have just passed them on to my son and daughter in law to put in the nursery for our new grandchild.

Here is a photo of a collection of much loved Beatrix Potter books, that have been treasured over the years.

The Lake District, where I live was the home of Beatrix Potter. I used to read the Tales of Peter Rabbit to my children as a bedtime story. Children can use the books when they themselves are leaning to read. The stories are simple, amusing and clear. The characters are fascinating. Everyone loves the naughty animals.

The illustrations by the author are beautiful.

You simply can't go wrong giving a Beatrix Potter Peter Rabbit book as a Christening gift.


This is an excellent biography of Beatrix Potter

This biography by Linda Lear gets 5 stars from its readers. Beatrix Potter was an extraordinary woman. Holding out against those who told her that drawing and writing were not suitable occupations for a wealthy young woman, Beatrix went on to become a riich lady in her own right.

In her second home, the Lake District (where I live) her legacy of preservation of the coutryside, and of the local Herdiwcik sheep, still lives on today.

UK reader can buy the book via this link. (It has a different title in the UK version, but it is the same book) Beatrix Potter: The extraordinary life of a Victorian genius

A brilliant Biography of Beatrix Potter, author of Peter Rabbit

Beatrix Potter: A Life in Nature

This very highly rated biography would make an excellent gift for parents who have fond memories of Peter Rabbit from their own childhood.

      I always loved the movie/story but to be honest I never knew there were so many books. Guess it is time for me to start looking. (I have four kids that only know of one story)

      I have loved the stories about Peter Rabbit all my life. My grandmother was very good at doing animal cut-outs with paper free hand, she showed me how and I learned to do it by making rabbit cut out free hand. My grandkids think its fun and I hope they learn to make rabbits too. Nice lens, thumbs-up!

      You definitely have niche topics down to a science.... it is something that I really have to refine.
