So far i'd say our wooden changing station, although not technically a gift as it was given to us.
When OH said his dad was fetching a changing station for us i was sooo sceptical as i was happy just changing him on a mat/towel on the sofa or bed, plus i was thinking where the hell we'd put it (our house is only small and full of junk!) but it's been an absolute lifesaver.
We have it downstairs and use it for changing all the time now as Toby has a habit of peeing when his nappy is off, like most little boys so this way we save the sofa cushions! Lol. I also use it to store clothes on so if Toby needs a full change i don't have to trek upstairs and hunt for clean clothes that fit him, and we use it to bath him on too which saves our backs and keeps him high up out of the way of our nosy (and hairy!) dog and cat during bath-time
oh yeah and the tiny love playmat! an amazing playmat my baby loves it and you can interchange the dangly bits as there are loads of extra rivet holes........mine has plastic car keys, soft books and allsorts hanging from it! they never get bored that way!
Instead of having to get her all wrapped up, spending 20 mins getting her ready with cardis and coats, gloves, hats blankets or wrestling her into a snow suit , to put her in her car seat for a 5 minute trip to get some milk.
I pop a cardi and a hat on her, stick her in and zip her up. It also means I can just unzip her if we're inside. And it fits perfectly in her carry cot as a liner and cover. Also the top buttons up into a 'hood' so protects her from any wind.
