Welcome to the cutest of all the Holiday Gift Guides! We’ve covered presents for the Office Secret Santa, and now we’re tackling kids pressies. Read on for our top (and cutest) picks from our Premium member-owned businesses…
In 2013, Premium member Heather Rowland was tired. Really effing tired. With a 7-month-old baby who just wouldn’t sleep or nap for long periods of time, the sleep deprivation drove her to research and develop a range of sustainable and organic baby comforters. Fast forward to 2019, and Heather has sold tens of thousands Kippins comforters to parents around the world. Kippins has now expanded their offering to include sleepwear, clothes, books, play mats and swaddles, but we love the Aussie themed character blankies – they make great gifts to send overseas too.
How can you go past these super cute jelly sandals? That’s a rhetorical question, you can’t. Snap up these Hubble + Duke sandals from Premium member Rosie Flynn for the cutie in your life.
Mama Maya’s gorgeous muslin swaddles are a go-to for baby shower gifts in the Business Chicks office. Premium member Robyn Jones has a beautiful range of pastel through to monochrome prints to suit every mama-to-be or new baby.
Fashion illustrator Megan Hess is a long-time member and supporter of Business Chicks. Not only do her designs grace the windows and products of designers like Prada, Dior, Louis Vuitton, Tiffany & Co., and Yves Saint Laurent but her delightful children’s book Claris: The Chicest Mouse in Paris now comes in plate form too. Buy it for your fashionable friend whose daughter is fast following in her footsteps.
If one of your friends or colleagues are about to have a baby, surprise them with one of the most stylish and organised nappy bags out there. Designed by Premium member Sophie Doyle, Alf the Label’s Ari leather backpack cleverly converts into a tote, a satchel, a backpack and hooks onto your pram too.
After Premium member and founder of Munchkin & Bear, Alana Hands, had her second baby she felt like her home was beginning to look like a crèche. With her background in marketing and product development, she set out to design a practical, affordable baby play mat that her stylish friends would happily leave on display in their living rooms. We reckon she’s definitely succeeded (check out her website for the full range of colours and designs).
Beau Hudson’s newborn Bandit Beanies are buttery soft and perfect for the most sensitive newborn head. Their trademark slouch beanie will fit the smallest of babies (great for premmies) to wear from day one in the world.
Many of our member’s business ideas have come from experiencing a problem first-hand and discovering there was a gap in the market. Case in point: Premium member and entrepreneur Jen Harwood. She developed Happy Hair Brushes after battling with putting her daughter’s hair up every morning before pre-school. Jen’s brushes come in a range of colours and designs and are suitable for babies right through to your pets too.
Premium member Nicole Ray is the editor and founder of Minty, a magazine proudly printed in Australia which features children’s bedrooms and playrooms designed by Australia’s top interior designers. Know someone who’s ready to renovate or create a beautiful nursery? A subscription makes the perfect gift.
We couldn’t go past this plush version of Megan Hess’ gorgeous mouse Claris. Look at those tiny shoes! Divine.
