Christmas gift ideas for Call the Midwife fans

From vintage tea sets and red cardigans, to series DVDs and official Call the Midwife merchandise, thrill the period drama fan in your life this Christmas

Do you know a Call the Midwife devotee? Does your housemate constantly hang around the phone in case a local woman goes into labour? Perhaps your mum’s started saying things like shilly-shally and golly-gosh? 


Make their Christmas brighter than Fred’s fairy lights with our top ten gifts for Call the Midwife fans…  

Cute cardi 

Channel the prim and proper style of the East End’s nurses with this classic cardigan. Perfect for rushing about on cobbles. 

M&S cardigan, from £18. Buy here

British brew

Nothing solves problems like a good cup of English Breakfast tea – and don’t the Nonnatus midwives know it. Pop a brew on in veritable vintage style with this classic Cornishware set. It’ll even match your cardi. 

Cornishware tea set, from £50. Buy here

Bonny baby 

They might not be CTM connoisseurs themselves, but babies deserve to be stylish too. Get your little one kitted up in a pretty, pastel print that wouldn’t look out of place in Poplar. 

Cath Kidston sleep suit, from £18. Buy here

Stiff upper lip(salve)

Battle winter winds and chapped lips with this frightfully British balm. It’ll also keep your mouth as kissable as Trixie’s. You know, just in case you catch a dishy vicar’s eye under the mistletoe…

M&S lipbalm, from £3.50. Buy here

Proper plasters

A Nonnatus gal wouldn’t be seen dead without her delivery kit. But dragging around clamps, catheters and forceps just isn’t that practical. The next best thing? This retro first aid kit.

Retro ringtone

Call the midwife, or your mum/boss/dentist, on this super-retro red telephone. Who needs a smart phone or a tablet thingy when you’ve got one of these cool contraptions to help you keep in contact?

Time for tea 

Keep your sponges, pies and home-baked goods safe from sneaky hands, greedy piglets and Sister Monica Joan until teatime…

Traditional toys 

Eschew internet-savvy speaking dolls, interactive baby monsters and colour-change bags (yes, these are all things) this Christmas and go back to basics, sixties-style. 

Egg and Spoon Race, from £12.95. Buy here

Call the catch up 

Relive the ups and downs of series three again. And again. And again. Or for as long as you can before someone forcibly stops you.

Little luxe

Feeling rather flush? Treat your tot to a state-of-the-art vintage-style pram, complete with a daisy chain print from John Lewis’ historic archive. Period perfection.
