We’ve been waiting for our selection of baby and girl winter tights to arrive, and we’re now excited to announce they’re finally available in our shop and online. This year, we have a selection of six colours–cream, nude beige, pale pink, dusky pink, french navy and dark plum.
The shades go beautifully with all of our Liberty print dresses and our merino cashmere knitwear. Since the colours match the rest of the collection so well, many of our customers choose to add a pair of our ribbed tights in a Christmas gift box to give a complete outfit.
Some also choose to do little gift boxes with, for example, a hair band and a pair of tights. Top quality tights make excellent additions to Christmas gift sets!
All colours are available in both baby and girls sizes (from 3 months to 8 years)–but these brilliant tights are always very popular, so order now to avoid disappointment!
With streets being lit for Christmas this week and Christmas Day only being 7 weeks away, it’s time to get in the spirit of the holiday season and start finding the perfect presents.

An ideal present and outfit for any little princess!
The countdown to Christmas has started, and Spirit of Christmas at Olympia London is now open.
We’ve had a busy first day at the show, and we were excited to see visitors even queuing to get in before the opening this morning. The show, which was buzzing all day, has so much to offer to help everyone get ready for Christmas.
Our own stand, which is easy to locate as it’s close to the main entrance, is packed with gorgeous knitwear, adorable baby gifts, sweet shoes, pretty dresses and stylish coats.
On the first day, we’ve had great fun helping customers shop for Christmas presents and baby presents, and there were also many mums who picked out stunning Christmas Day outfits for their little ones today.

Look out for all these fabulous new outfits on our website next week!
Although many have the option to find out if they’re having a boy or a girl before the arrival of their new baby, there are a number of couples who choose to keep it a surprise – or at least keep it a surprise for friends and family. It might make it seem tricky to buy the perfect baby present when you don’t want to go for blue or pink, but we have a number of adorable pieces in creams and greys that make for brilliant presents for both boys and girls.
Here are three stunning baby gift ideas from our unisex collection:
Picot Edge Cot Bed Blanket (£129)
Our cot-bed sized baby blankets are always popular among new parents, as they’re so practical for keeping baby warm in the cot or on the go. The merino/cashmere blend picot edge baby blanket is available in grey with cream contrasting crochet picot edging, making it an amazing gift to both baby boys and girls.
Bumblebee Flaphat & Mittens Set (£58) A hat and mittens are essential for keeping baby warm during the colder months, and this cream merino/cashmere blend flaphat and mittens set means baby can be snug in style. The adorable set with hand-embroidered bumblebees on both hat and mittens makes a perfect present and is ideal for photo opportunities.
Cashmere Teddy Hooded Jacket (£85) The new cashmere hooded jacket with teddy embroidery on the pockets is beautiful and luxurious. The super soft jacket is knitted in Loro Piana cashmere in pale silver grey with a contrast cream colour on the borders, cuffs and hood tassel and it makes a lovely baby gift for both little boys and girls.
