It’s always a difficult task buying unique newborn baby gifts. You don’t want to be that friend that gives nappies or Sudocream (Although both are extremely useful. We have even included them on our baby shopping list must haves)
You want to be the friend that has thought long and hard, looked on every forum and searches through hundreds of online stores to find the perfect gift for that special friend.
When people think of gift hampers they are thinking of items in a cane basket. However, as we consider ourselves as a small business that cares for the environment, we have gone for a more environmental route and supply our products in a 100% recycled cardboard box.
Below are further details on our hampers;
Recycled packaging and card
With all our packaging and promotional material, we try to be as environmentally friendly as possible. All our product tags, greeting cards and gift boxes are made with a 100% recycled card.
All of the fabric items are handmade in Australia. We have a small studio based in Perth where we cut, sew and finish each product by hand. We love that our products are Australian made and are pleased to be a licensee of the Australian Made campaign.
We also love to support other Australian businesses and we actively go out of our way to buy from Perth and Australian suppliers.
Organic and Environmental friendly Materials
When choosing materials to make our handmade products we were determined to keep it as environmentally friendly as possible. This includes sourcing a backing that is made with a bamboo and cotton mix. This enables our products to not only be sustainable but super absorbent. This bamboo mix is a great product to use as it is one of the quickest growing materials, is abundant and requires very little extra watering.
One of the favourite parts of my job is to source fabrics that are on trend which are suitable as a unisex print or for boys or girls.
On a number of occasions, we have even commissioned Perth graphic artists to design prints exclusively for us. These prints include the Flamingos, Birds Perch, Whales and Cactus designs. This ensures that the products in the hampers are unique and original as well as practical.
We also love anything Australiana and this seems to be a theme that is on trend right now. Our Australian themed prints include Eucalyptus, Kangaroos and the very popular Koala designs.
We have also sourced some prints which are specifically for boys. These prints include animals, black and white stripes, lambs and circles. While some of our popular girls’ prints are the victorian vintage, swans and pink blossom tallulah designs.
Quality and Practicality
We understand that giving a hamper is a very personal experience. This is why our hampers are designed using the highest quality products. Not only are the products of high quality, but they are also extremely useful and practical. Each item included in our various hampers will be useful and the recipient will be happy to receive.
We currently offer 4 styles of hampers to choose from. These are described in more detail below.
The newborn baby hamper is the smallest in size and contains a bandana bib, bunny teether and a choice of card. This is a simple, elegant gift that is not only practical but unique.
Boys and girls hampers
With a selection of prints for boys and girls, these hampers are designed for those that want to give a stylish and unique gift which is practical and thoughtful.
Hamper for the work colleagues
We recommend giving the deluxe gift set as this is designed as a joint present perfect for a baby shower or work colleague. So get your friends together to chip in a little money to give a hamper that is going to be practical and stylish.
This has a range of items ideal for new parents including a record baby book, dummy, bunny teether, burping cloth, bandana dribble bib and dummy chain. All coming with a greeting card and beautifully gift wrapped.
Build your own
Another alternative is to build your own hamper. You can make your own gift sets by combining products as you wish. At the online checkout mention that you would like this gift wrapped and we will take care of the rest.
We are a small boutique brand in Perth, Australia, however, we have the capabilities to deliver anywhere in the world. We are happy to deliver to residential and work addresses however our preference is to not deliver to hospitals. This is because our products are handmade and can take up to 7 days to make, meaning the new parents may have left the hospital already. For more information on our delivery times please refer our shipping policy.
We hope this has been useful and if you do have any questions please feel free to contact me.
