COMB AND GET IT: Silversmith Mappin & Webb has held a royal warrant since 1897 — and the brand’s sterling silver brush and comb set, at £425, is a breathtaking gift.But to save a fortune, swap for the Bambino baby silver-plated brush and comb set from for £26.

Get the Peter Rabbit baby record book from Mothercare instead of Aspinal’s version

ONE FOR THE BOOKS: Aspinal of London Deluxe Baby Record Book, £105, is a beautiful way to document precious memories and milestones featuring the new addition.But you can avoid the hefty price tag by opting for the Peter Rabbit baby record book, £19.99 from Mothercare, instead.SAVING: £85.01
BABY SMELL: Baby perfumes are actually a thing. The new royal arrival may find himself spritzed with Creed Pour Enfants fragrance, £120, as the first Creed fragrance was commissioned by King George III in 1781 and the brand is still a royal favourite.But save by gifting the equally scent-sational alcohol-free and hypoallergenic Mustela Musti Eau de Soin, £11.96 for 50ml at Landys Chemist.SAVING: £108.04

Opt for the John Lewis version of a silver Asprey teddy bear money bank

BEAR-LY ANY DIFFERENCE: A silver Asprey teddy bear money bank for £2,575, may be a fit way for a royal tot to stash their pocket money — but its price is enough to drain most of our own piggy banks.So opt instead for the John Lewis version at £25.That’s a sterling swap if we ever saw one.SAVING: £2,550
