Media Week – Photos, Brochures and Videos

Sometimes activities are like buses, you don’t partake in one for ages and then they all come at once. This week we have been busy at FS HQ with photos, videos and new brochures.

Our commercial photographer Eleanor has been very busy photographing lots of little items of baby clothes and other gorgeous gifts for new imagery for our website and catalogue. I must say I am very excited to see the end results and to bring them to you online and in print. A job we have had planned for awhile and well the impending ‘maternity leave’ has a way of making you hit the ‘To Do List’ with a little more fervour. The problem with these shoots is Continue reading

The Hospital Bag – Week 35

Slight panic here when the 1st August rolled around and I realised we are having a baby NEXT month!

They recommend you have your hospital bag packed no later than 35 – 36 weeks. Although many babies arrive late, you are considered full-term at 37 weeks.

Gifts for Twins

We seem to be inundated with orders for twins at the moment. I’m not sure if there is a twin boom on or if customers just happen to come across our Bouquets of Baby Clothes for Twins and think what a great idea! You can never have enough baby clothing essentials, with one baby never mind two.

I have spared a thought for all those twins mummies during my own pregnancy. I have officially reached the moan phase. I feel big, tired and grumpy. It makes me wonder how much harder it must be for the multiple mummies. They definately deserve an extra special gift when their extra special arrivals arrive.

Gifts for the New Dad – Week 34

So I’ve sorted out the gifts for the ‘Big Sisters’, now it is time to spare some thought for the new dad. More shopping!

I clearly remember the first time around the impending father is quite revered. I am sorry to say the 3rd time around dad is the bottom rung on the ladder, although a very important one. He realises this too. As mum starts to slow down the girls certainly need him more but when it comes to most things, especially meals he gets last look in. No one gets between a pregnant women and her food and well children are best fed next too.

Last month while we were sourcing some new ranges for our New Sibling Gift Collection I came across this book called ‘Go the Fxxk to Sleep’. Well Continue reading
