Showcase Winner & Special Guest – Lullaby Baby Gifts
Team Freddie Pig approached me and asked if I’d like to do a guest blog. I felt quite excited about the prospect of sharing with others how I started up my business and how successful its become!
I became a Grandmother at the grand old age of 39!
When my daughter and her husband told me they were expecting a baby I was so excited!!
I set about giving my daughter the best Baby Shower I could possibly give her!!
I looked on line for lots of ideas and decided to try my hand at making her a nappy cake. Everyone at the Shower wanted to know who did it & when I told them I did, my friends and family encouraged me to start a business and that’s how Lullaby Baby Gifts began in July of 2009!
I got my very first order within a couple a weeks and I haven’t looked back since!
Next step was to create a website to let more people know that there are affordable beautiful & unique baby gifts out there that can’t be bought on the high street. I also wanted to add a little something different for my customers and so decided to offer a free gift wrap service with the option of sending the gift direct to the recipient. This service has gone down a treat and all that’s needed from the customer is a personal message for the gift tag!
In March 2012 I took on board customers suggestions and thought it was time to upgrade the website offering customers a choice of British Handmade gifts including the ‘Hand Knitted by Nanny Murray” range and the animal slippers are selling like hot cakes!! Especially the Freddie Pig ones! They keep babies feet so cosy warm..here’s a photo of them!
I sell a lot of gifts for Baby Showers and so I also decided to add a Baby Shower Gift List. Customers organising a Baby Shower can register on the website, adding gifts that the ‘Mum to be’ will like/need. They’re given a registration number to give to guests, who can then purchase a gift from the list.
Purchasing a gift from the website also takes all the stress out of hunting for a gift on the high st.
So if you have a baby shower coming up to go to or a new arrival to buy for or quite simply want to buy something different for your own baby have a peek on our website;
