We’ve talked about the fabulous Franjo’s Kitchen before and their Tanker Topper Biscuits (for breast feeding) as well as their Belly Bump Biscuits (for pregnancy). They now also have a range of cleverly coined crackers for your cans and crackers for your cravings (for both breast feeding and pregnancy). Yum!! We are so impressed with the quality of Franjo’s products, a must for pregnancy and breastfeeding mamas. These would also make a beautiful baby shower gift!! (See their amazing Christmas GIFT BOXES on sale this week ONLY!)
With all of the recipes are naturopath/nutritionist created and approved, Franjo’s biscuits and crackers are full of goodness for Mums and Mums to be. Both pregnancy and breastfeeding demand a lot from your body. Not having the time to prepare healthy snacks while juggling babies and lacking in energy is exactly where Franjo’s comes in! The pregnancy crackers are specially made (vegan, gluten free, dairy free, egg free and sugar free!) to be an easy, nutrient dense snack that can be eaten alone, dipped in soup or topped with any range of things (avocado & tomato, cheese, pesto… check here for more ideas). The belly bump biscuits are equally great, filled with superfoods for those minerals and essential fats needed in pregnancy as well as calcium while remaining dairy free AND free from refined sugars!
The lactation (Tanker Topper) cookies and crackers are also made with Mums in mind and full of goodness to keep that milk flowing, reduce sugar cravings and give you that extra energy you need while breastfeeding. Also free from wheat, dairy, egg and refined sugar, these really are an all round PERFECT snack for mamas! It is a must, must, MUST to take care of YOURSELF during pregnancy and breastfeeding, and these tick all the boxes! Speaking of boxes, we’d definitely recommend taking advantage of the one week only Gift Boxes on sale now! (or grab a box for a friend!)
Holy Moly! I think we have just found the cutest merino baby wear in all of NZ! Mamoo & Lou have created a truly magical collection where fun shapes and patterns meet natural fibres and a muted palette.
Mamoo & Lou create their baby and toddler garments using 100% merino wool in gender neutral designs (perfect for gifting – we LOVE the Newborn Gift Set!) which is ideal for handing down garments to siblings/cousins/friends etc! We are always looking for garments to stand the test of time and Mamoo & Lou DEFINITELY tick that box.
Baby knitwear has a special place in my heart. Every time a knitted piece is unwrapped at a baby shower there are cheers and swoons and a lot of ohhs and ahhs. Scroll through with us and get your knitted fix of the most gorgeous rompers, cardis, jumpsuits, beanies and more. Right now we are hosting a GIVEAWAY of one of the Shadow jumpsuits on our Facebook and Instagram – Be sure to enter! ALSO.. Head to Mamoo & Lou’s Facebook and Instagram to keep up with their weekly Christmas specials (currently Buy one jumpsuit, get one free!!) as well as enter to win vouchers!
Our heads are swimming in the beautiful world of Kate & Kate. Luxurious natural fibres of linen and hand woven cotton mix with bright pops of colour, free-form hand drawn shapes and contrasting geometric designs. The new Eastern Point Summer range is on… point!
We’ve talked about Australian brand, Kate & Kate before and we’re overjoyed to see their range expand since we talked about them last (these guys are ones to follow!!). As well as GORGEOUS 100% cotton baby blankets (which are soft, breathable and a nice generous size perfect for babies AND kids! – Hooray!) we’re also totally crazy about the Linen throws! Linen is such a luxury fabric and these throws bring them into everyday life even for a busy family. You can use them not only as a blanket (for the couch or bed) but also a beach throw, wall hanging, table cloth or a picnic rug. Multi-purpose – Yeesss!
Cushions.. Cotton Blankets.. Tea Towels… Napkins.. Ahh they’re all so beautiful!! Have a scroll through with us and see their whole collection here

Adorable alert!! We have found SO much to love over at NZ brand, Goblin Babywear. Soo many lovely pieces for little ones AND even a grown up section! HOORAY!
We get excited when we find brands making stylish, unique pieces that aren’t simply ‘on trend’ and will last well (no fast fashion please!). Even with kids pieces (which get grown out of quickly) we love timeless, well made garments that can be handed down (to siblings, friends, cousins etc!).
So many great Christmas present ideas here (we’re especially fond of the mini leather purses and the Goblin x Burrow & Be range!), orders close 8th December for Christmas delivery – Get in there quick!
