Need a unique and thoughtful gift for a Baby Shower or a loved one who’s just had a new baby? At thebabybox.com, we sell a wide range of beautiful Finnish Baby Boxes and other luxurious Gift Boxes for newborns.
The Baby Box concept originated in Finland in the 1930s, where it was introduced to tackle the country’s high infant mortality rate. The original baby box was designed to be used as an infant’s first crib, with a mattress, basic clothing and essential supplies to promote safe sleeping. The programme is still going strong today, and Finland’s Infant Mortality rate is now the 5th lowest in the world.
At thebabybox.com we are passionate about child safety and health. The simple, effective design of the box coupled with its firm mattress helps promote safe sleeping as recommended by the American Academy of Paediatrics, the National Institute of Child Health and Human Development and others.
Every one of our products undergoes rigorous safety testing. The Baby Box conforms to BS EN 1130, the International Gold Standard for Crib & Cradle Safety. The Baby Box is the only Finnish Baby Box on the market that meets this standard. Our mattresses conform to BS EN 1877 for Safety and BS EN 7177 for flammability.
As well as being a safe place to sleep, our Baby Boxes come with lots of luxurious newborn clothing & accessories as well as those practical necessities for the first few months. They really are the perfect gift for a Baby Shower or for any new parents! To shop our full range of Baby Boxes and Newborn Gifts please click here.

What’s more, thebabybox.com is more than just a commercial enterprise. We believe that every child deserves an equal start in life regardless of where they’re born. That’s why we are proud to be working with UNICEF to help protect children in developing countries against life threatening diseases like measles, polio and tetanus.
Ten Vaccination Kits will be donated for every Baby Box sold through the website. Each of these Kits will protect a child in the Developing World from Measles, Polio and Tetanus. For more information on our Charity Work, please click here.
