It’s Friday night and what a better way to end off the week with a glass of wine and a soak in the tub!  To top it off the gorgeous Sohum Cosmetics products to make your skin feel gorgeous.  We just love Sohum, the fragrances, the creams and the candles for a bit of mood lighting….we stock their products in a lot of our baby hampers and more so in our something for mum boxes.  Love this image, gives the feeling of being nice and clean….happy weekend everyone!   L&J

There have been an abundance of twin boxes ordered lately…..we have had 3 lots of twin boys just this week.  We found over last year there were so many girls born but with orders going they way they have recently the boys are catching up.  This twins box is super popular….one way to make sure the new parents to twins have the coming home from hospital outfits sorted!

Baby Linen

Posted on by Uki

You know what it’s like, you have just had your new baby and you get home and if you didn’t find out the sex beforehand you get online and try and find stuff for your new little boy or girl.  It’s so exciting and probably the first thing you want to buy is clothes for the new baby then linen.  Baby Batches is looking into stocking cot linen (we do sell Bubba Blue cot sheets in our corporate baby hampers) but thinking of selling beautiful cot sets.   We love this set by Lullaby Linen (image via Lullaby Linen)

The Dummy!

{focus_keyword} The Dummy! pink dummy{focus_keyword} The Dummy! blue dummyWe are not going to get involved in the big dummy debate, we think you either love them or hate them. Our personal view is that we both used a dummy on our kids and for us it was a life saver at times.  We sell Lauren Hinkley “My First Dummy” as an add-on for all of our baby hampers and it’s such a nice little something to add to your baby gift (and reasonably priced too at $8.95)!

This hamper is a great idea for work colleagues and/or friends to all chip in to buy and takes the pain out of walking the shops to finding the perfect gift.  Here is the link to this beautiful and popular girl baby hamper –

We thought it was about time we let you get to know us.  As you know we are sisters and we are both mums, Jane has a 10 year old son, Dan and Liz has a 3 year old daughter, Abby – they love to hate each other but really do love eachother.  They spend so much time together they are practically brother and sister.
