We’ve previously hunted out cheap-but-expensive-looking accents for your bedroom and your kitchen, and now it’s time to look at the nursery. For new parents wanting to personalise their little one’s space, or an auntie or uncle on the hunt for a gift, we’ve scoured Amazon to find the best cheap (but expensive-looking) accents. Below, everything from a delightful cheese-themed toy to a traditional dollhouse for a great price.
They’re never too young for a reading nook — and this one is half the price of others on the market.
This mouse-and-cheese puzzle, designed to develop hand-eye coordination, is also the kind of toy you’d love to leave lying around.
A friendly face for nighttime.
This yellow and grey geometric runner would be great in a hallway or bedroom, but we like the idea of it jazzing up a nursery.
A great way to show-off and stow away books.
Some floating shelves would be a nice way to display assorted objects without taking up floor space.
The bold colours and simple design give this a Tate-gift-shop feel.
This print would look nice against a white wall. (Note: it comes unframed.)
This watercolour print is also charming.
Or how about going full-on minimalism with this black-and-white bear?
The open shelving can be used for storage or display (also available in grey and antique brown).
This Nordic-inspired mobile is made of felt and will entertain little ones while looking stylish.
We also like this wood and felt mobile for its interesting shapes and textures.
This handmade pendant shade looks like it costs a lot more than £15.
A rope laundry basket in neutral, muted hues.
This hamper has extendable straps, so you can carry it with ease.
This large rope basket is easy to take from room to room, so it would make a useful washing basket.
A stool is essential for big and little guests. This rectangular one is simple but stylish.
This bin holds 30 nappies, and individually seals each one to prevent odours from spreading.
This plush avocado is ridiculous, and we love it.
Or how about some colour? We like these chalky-hued blocks.
This is a good price for a dollhouse, which can cost three times as much.
These would make an appropriate gift for new parents.
A giant polar bear is less sensible (but way more fun) than a teddy bear.
