We’ve put together a selection of the most beautiful baby gifts and present them to you here in this article.

Sustainable gifts for a newborn: ‘Welcome to the World’

A classic gift for a newborn is something personalized. A unique and environmentally friendly gift for a newborn for example could be our book “Welcome to the World”. 


This moving story welcomes a child to our wonderful planet. At the same time, it inspires parents to rediscover the little wonders around them. You can choose the name and appearance of the child yourself with the configurator via the Librio online store. A personal dedication can also be printed on the first page.

The book is available in 16 different languages, including German, Spanish, Albanian or Turkish. If you order two or more books, you can easily save 15% by simply entering the code HURRA15 upon checkout. The adorable baby book is a personal gift and perfect for newborns. The question remains whether these picture books are actually sustainable gifts for childbirth.

Are Librio’s picture books actually sustainable gifts for a newborn though?

Social and environmental responsibility is a top priority at Librio. As parents and uncles, the founders continue to run the children’s book publisher, remaining true to their motto: “We have not inherited the earth from our parents – but borrowed it from our children”. 


As part of the “More than Book” campaign, Librio donates 1% of its turnover to social and ecological projects. They help Room to Read to build libraries in developing countries and help support Trees for the Future to  plant trees as well. 


At the same time, all products are printed as sustainably as possible on 100% high-quality recycled paper. The children’s book publisher also produces its products locally to the shipment country. You can find out more about Librio’s commitment here

A beautiful congratulatory card

Welcoming a newborn is an extraordinary moment. In addition to gifts, a greeting card is a very nice touch. It’s a way in which you can congratulate the parents and wish the little one all the best as well. You can’t go wrong with a personalized greeting card – especially if it’s printed locally and environmentally friendly on 100% recycled paper like the personalized cards from Librio.
