Christmas Gift Guide – monochrome finds for baby

Welcome to Day 8 of our Christmas Gift Guide series. Today we have the lovely Lil HipStar with her funky Monochrome discoveries for baby. What a great selection of goodies for the nursery.

1- Fitted Cot Sheet from Pappiyon

2- Star Mobile from Stef Collections

3- Baby Crib Quilt from Alphabet Monkey

4- I love you to the Moon and back Wall Print from Mint Imprint

 These products are perfect to complete any modern baby/toddler room.  I love the neutrality of the current trend of the black and white baby scheme making it usable for a boy or girl or even a second child.

Laura launched her label Lil Hipstar in September 2013 as a creative outlet to pursue while caring my my first child Oliver.“When Oliver was born I just couldn’t find the funky, hip baby blanket that I was looking for. I wanted something a little different. Before having my son Oliver, I was a full time architect. When Oliver was born with a congenial skull condition called craniosynostosis, I knew that returning to the corporate work would probably not be possible with a lot of doctors appointments to attend.” This was a turning point and a great opportunity to have the best of both worlds: caring for Oliver, and designing and creating fun exciting things for other babies that just weren’t available for us!

Laura chose her business name after considering lists and lists of names, and discussing them with neighbours, friends and family. She chose Lil Hipstar to portray the spirit of Melbourne, the funky little generation of kids. Laura lists her creative inspiration as “a constant passion for wanting to make, create and design”. She says, “For me, designing and making things has been an integral part of my life for as long as I can remember. The next step in Lil HipStar’s life is to start designing and printing our all of our own fabric designs. I think this will add an extra special touch to our product range.”
Laura works with all kinds of fabrics, but “My favourite colours and style combinations at the moment are geometric black and white. I love the simplicity of monochrome and the gender neutrality”.

2- Messenger Bag from Button Hole Designs - Whenever I go out, my children want to take one or 2 small items with them, why not teach them some independence and responsibilility with their own bag?  These messenger bags have adjustable straps and are perfect for a small person to carry their precious things!

Did you see Day 6– super cute gift ideas?

Christmas Gift Guide- super cute finds

Welcome to Day 6 of our Christmas Gift Guide series. Today we have the lovely Robintail with her selection of super cute gift ideas for a special Christmas. 

1- Je T’aime Dress Baby Doll Dress from Pretty Parcel – Perhaps a gift for yourself, Shannon’s gorgeous work always makes for a very Pretty Parcel. Her pieces are high quality, well made and just plain fun! I love this one because there is an air of the Nutcracker about it however in warmer places this season, her Watermelon Wednesday skirts would also be an ideal Christmas day outfit.

2- Inspiration Necklace from Dear Delilah - “She took a leap of faith and found her wings on the way down” is one of my favourite inspirational quotes! The necklaces Katie lovingly creates are typed on her vintage typewriter meaning each piece is as special as the recipient. This one would be great for girls and women of all ages.

3- Pretty Posie Earrings in Peach from Megsy-Jane – These are a favourite of mine so I just had to add them to the list! The feminine charm is delightful and the who doesn’t love a bit of rose, sparkle and gold?  A great gift for women of all ages, they also come in a beautiful gift box so the hard work is all done!

4- Panda Felt Toy from Plushka’s Craft -  Katia’s pieces are stitched by hand, which I think is pretty special! Her designs are also unique and oh so cute – I’m certain this Panda in black and white would be suitable for both boys and girls..and not necessarily restricted to being a child-only gift..he would also be a delightful addition to any modern decor!

5- Pink Deer Christmas Card by Mulberry Muse-  I absolutely love Wendy’s amazing designs. Her gorgeous illustrations and quality of work are the reason her cards, gift tags and prints bring so much joy to the heart – this lovely deer card would be perfect for someone special and will remain a keepsake they can frame later – a gift & card all in one!

6- Gold Rush Ballet Moccs from Hubble and Duke- These teeny tiny ballet moccs would be an ideal Christmas gift for a baby girl, the stunning gold has a luxe look and will go with almost any outfit. A perfect size for slipping into baby’s first Christmas stocking.
