People & Products | Buying Unusual Gifts.

We’ve found some adorable products which we just had to share. Sometimes the power of Instagram & Twitter is just brilliant as it brings us to different brands that otherwise you wouldn’t have heard of. After years of buying presents for children it’s good to learn of new products, shops & online sellers. We’ve learnt that it’s worth paying for quality when toys are loved, so although these products aren’t cheap they wear well and are often handmade. We’ve not yet delved into the world of Etsy but we’ve heard there are lots of great products for babies and children there too.

Pinch toys
We discovered pinch toys via Instagram (they’re very good at Instagram)! You will find simple wooden toys /accessories and cotton products. Often monochrome or just wooden we think simple is the way forward and you can gain a very stylish nursery with just a couple of statement products. We’ve noticed a lot of their wooden products are made to order. : )

Little Maldod
We have previously featured Little Maldod’s Newborn Gift which you can read about here. Little Maldod has lots of pretty products – think cute babygrows, pretty partyware, home accessories and also prints. How cute are those wooden biscuits and personalised babygrows! Sometimes it’s just nice to find something that is a little more unusual. Especially if you get invited to lots of baby showers / have lots of friends who are expecting.

Great Little Trading Company
Great Little Trading Company have been around since 1996. They sell wonderful furniture for nurseries and playrooms but you can also find some great presents on their website too. We love this Convertible Fire Engine Book for example, (they also do tractor, princess carriage and train). Currently there is a Flash Sale with upto 30% off.*

The Great Little Trading Company have recently opened a London shop in Wandsworth where you can view and buy their products.

Toyella offers lots of toys which we haven’t seen before. We’ve found they sell lots of innovative toys. They also pride themselves on “gifts that promote ‘traditional’ play and interaction. No electronic games here!” Hooray for that! We are particularly intrigued by the Plui rain cloud and may just have to place an order pretty soon.
