Can you say baby boom? Everywhere i look are preggie bellies – i’m so happy for my friends who will soon have little pink or blue babies in their arms – some of them will have two – talk about double happiness!! My little niece has just turned one and there are lots of I Want That’s when it comes to her too.
If you’re looking for goodies for your own little poppet or something special to spoil someone who is expecting, then hopefully you’ll spot a couple of things that fit the bill.
These pretties are from Heart and Home, an online emporium with a distinctive vintage edge. The bunny nightlight is a bargain – less than R100 – definitely worth ordering a couple to keep in the cupboard for that next baby shower.
I am such a Mungo fan – from their linen to their tableware and blankets that you just know will last a lifetime, their handmade woven wares are a testament to the talent and quality available right here on South African shores. You can shop for their beautiful baby linen and blankets online and how cute is is the teddy?
For clothing and accessories straight off the European shelves, head for My Friend Lily where you’ll find everyday essentials and must haves infused with a classic charm – like the pink Breton style jumper – too cute!
I’m sure you are no stranger to the My Wall Tattoos brand – i love their offerings for every room in the home and especially for kids. We have Wall Tattoos in both the girls’ bedrooms and it’s the first things their friends who haven’t seen their rooms comment on.
The Naartjie brand is such an incredible South African success story – is it any surprise that it’s a hit overseas? Tough, quality and comfy garments that are on-trend without being obnoxious. I love their offerings – these are from the brand spanking new spring range which you can buy online.
Kids mean clutter which is why Nest is such a fantastic solution for parents trying to ensure they don’t lose their kids under a sea of toys and stuff…check out their latest new products available online and have a look at the bedroom furniture, they have such great choices for everyone from babies to teens – all available online. Isn’t that rug the business?
I hadn’t heard of the Sticky Fudge brand until i received a mail from the Smitten girls – i’m sorry, how cute is that beautiful baba all in grey?! Too cute. Of course, Smitten has loads of other lovelies for littlies – Tracey and Charlene have an excellent eye for clothing and accessories for babies and kids and i highly recommend you visit their pretty shop in Constantia.
Were i to have a little person, i would go for one of these lovely baby bags from Tamelia Trading! So good looking, lots of space and it can be side strapped or used over the shoulder. Plus this baby bag has those compartments for the things you’d rather not know about until you get home.
Have you visited the Kinderelo site? They have everything from furniture to maternity wear, bottles, linen and books – truly a one-stop online shop – so convenient if the last thing you feel like doing is shlepping for prams or daily essentials. I hadn’t seen their Peter Rabbit range either – love that!
Hope you saw a something for a little person in your life! V x
