We are totally crushing on sweet wee Kiwi brand, Pip Pottage designs right now.
Pip and her seamstress Mum hand make all of the beautiful Pip Pottage items in their sunny Nelson workshop. It’s such a joy to find people / brands who are making things themselves, using eco-friendly and organic materials and doing such a darn good job of it!
As well as an excellent baby range (hello gorgeous baby blankets, swaddles, cushions and NEW burp cloths!), Pip Pottage also has a great range of Happy Lunch Bags and Happy Buckets (super handy storage baskets) which are both made out of a polyester canvas that’s made from recycled plastic bags and bottles.
There’s lots of excellent (easy to ship) Christmas present options here to choose from! AND we have one of the perfect wee Happy Lunch Bags to GIVEAWAY!! YAY! – Scroll through to the bottom of the post for details on how to enter to win!

Open to NZ/AUS residents only. Drawn at random Friday 9th December 2016.
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!
Eeeeeeee!!! Our eyes have permanent hearts on them right now. Local favourites, Mushama & Me have just released some brand new Baby Rain Ponchos and Waterproof Playmats and we are in LOVE!
We’ve talked about New Zealand brand, Mushama & Me before but in case you missed it, these guys make incredible raincoats from pre-loved fabrics which have been water-proofed / wind-proofed. We just love their ethos and the incredibly unique products they make. These guys really are taking environmentally friendly products to the next level!
Form and function definitely combine with both the heart meltingly cute Baby Poncho and the perfectly practical Waterproof Playmat. The Poncho is super easy to get on baby without having to fight with arms / armholes and the hood is elasticated so it stays on! The playmats, available in 2 sizes are a must for any family with so many uses – Outdoor play, picnics, beach, park, water-play, playdough, indoor play, under a high chair. Each mat comes in a wee drawstring bag made from recycled cotton so it’s easy to take with you and always have on hand. Come browse with us!

We are so thrilled to introduce you to a super cool kiwi brand, O is for Olive! The very clever graphic designer, Melanie has just recently launched her line of bespoke typographic prints and we are smitten.
‘Personalised’ products can be a little hit and miss especially when it comes to kids things but O is for Olive is definitely a hit. You can personalise your print with Name / Date / Location / Weight etc, making a ridiculously stylish keepsake which would last for years to come. With a mid-century modern feel, you can see the prints don’t look out of place in a living room / hallway as well as fitting perfectly into a nursery or kids room. With free worldwide shipping on all prints, these are a really great buy for yourself or a beautiful gift!
We can’t get enough of the ridiculously cool spring / summer range from Baobab!
Art movements of Cubism, Futurism and Abstract Expressionism fused with the natural world have inspired this great collection. With a fun mixture of soft pastels and bright primary colours there are options for every kid and these well made pieces will definitely get a lot of wear! There’s a lot to love, and you even get them good feels when you realise they are all manufactured under a Fair Trade agreement with the majority of the items made from GOTS certified 100% organic cotton knit. Hoorah!
Browse with us! (You can see the full collection here – they have FREE shipping worldwide before Christmas!!)
