A photographic keepsake gift thats perfect for mamas-to-be from Mothercare

I love this frame. I think it’s the perfect gift for a new mama. It would make a super stylish baby shower gift too – as it lasts well beyond the new baby stage and plus it’s unisex (always a bonus.) This is definitely a gift that won’t get forgotten in the sea of double-up baby-grows, blankets and soft toys – and will be appreciated for many years to come. I particularly liked this one because it’s not too big…

They also helped when I had total ‘baby brain’ and couldn’t remember what day it was! What’s more they made a great photo opportunity… Easy to make too. Grab a pack of these and either embroider the…

Personalised name prints for kids bedrooms

I think nursery walls should be kept as minimal as possible – a few nice framed picts and some bookshelves are really all a little nursery needs. One picture we love is our Frame My Name print.
