Letting go of outgrown baby clothing might be hard, but we might be hanging on a bit too hard. With a massive 183 million items of outgrown baby clothing tucked away in UK homes and 1/3 of parents admitting to throwing clothing in the bin because they didn't know what else to do with themit’s time to #GiftABundle.

In the run up to Mother’s Day, we’re collaborating with mothercare to make it easy for parents to #GiftABundle of outgrown baby clothing and support local families.

Up until Mother's Day on 11th March, you can gift bundles of six - ten items of good quality, outgrown baby clothing for ages between premature to three years, in 42 selected mothercare stores across the UK.

How to #GiftABundle

  1. Pick up a bundle bag from one of 42 Mothercare stores. Click here to find your nearest participating store.
  2. Fill it with six - ten pieces of good quality, outgrown clothing for an age group between premature to three years, and fill in the gift tag.
  3. Share a picture of your bundle with hashtag #GiftABundle.
  4. Drop off your bundle at collection points in one of the same selected mothercare stores by 11th March and they’ll be gifted to local families via community groups from Mother’s Day.

What can I gift in my bundle?

All good quality baby clothing for ages premature to three years will be warmly welcomed, including shoes, hats and socks. Unfortunately we can’t accept toys, blankets, bedding or batches of clothing not made into the small bundle gifts.

If you have lots of good quality clothing in a range of sizes, you're welcome to gift more than once. Please split the ages so that the gifts are ready to be passed on to a family.

If you have larger batches of clothing, or clothing that is stained or too worn to wear, there are lots of other options for making good use of them instead of throwing them away. Find out more here.

There are loads of other ways to get involved:

Who will receive the gifts?

All gifts will be passed on for free to families across the UK. Each participating mothercare store will be selecting community groups and organisations local to them, to gift the bundles on to. If you'd like to receive some of the collected gifts this year, please get in touch with your local participating store - see below.

Any clothing gifted that is not suitable to gift on, will be recycled.
