The Duke and Duchess of Cambridge's third child is due any day now. As per Prince George and Princess Charlotte's births, the royal couple is being showered with gifts. What would you give the royal baby?

It’s safe to say Prince William and Kate Middleton’s third child will have everything it could possibly need – but nevertheless, well-wishers will want to give the baby a gift. But what do you get a royal baby – and a royal baby whose father will one day be King, at that?

Here are just a few likely options, judging from past royal baby births:

A soft toy: a good soft toy is hard to beat and something that can be loved for years to come. Whether it’s a classic teddy bear, a bunny rabbit or a zoo animal, a new baby is going to love their first soft toy.

A blanket: Prince George received an embroidered blanket from Spain as a gift from Former Deputy Prime Minister Nick Clegg – practical and stylish. Former New Zealand Prime Minister John Key gifted Princess Charlotte a blanket made from local Stansborough wool.

A flowering plant: while not a traditional gift, a beautiful flowering plant is a wonderful way to acknowledge a child’s birth and track their growth – as the plant grows, so will the child. With any luck, the plant will thrive and the child can learn to care for it when they are older.

A rattle: Prince Charles gave granddaughter Princess Charlotte a willow rattle woven by Irish basket maker Ciaran Hogan. The young royal also received a silver rattle from Mexican President Enrique Peña Nieto and a jewel-encrusted rattle worth $44,000 from the Natural Sapphire Company.

A name train: who doesn’t love toy trains? A wooden name train will provide a child with plenty of fun – and help them learn to spell their own name.

Picture books: classic picture books are a great gift that children can treasure as they grow up and put aside for their future family. Former British Prime Minister David Cameron gifted Prince George a collection of Roald Dahl books upon his birth. For Princess Charlotte, Cameron gifted a copy of Hans Christian Andersen’s Fairy Tales. 

An embroidered bib: royal or not, there’s no denying that babies can be very messy eaters. A luxury bib embroidered with cute animal pictures will be useful to any young child.
