Personalised nursery cushion (£49)
For a lovely memory for baby, our personalised nursery cushions make a sweet and long-lasting gift. The cushions, which are hand knitted in merino, are hand embroidered with soldiers for boys or flowers for girls and baby’s name and date of birth. They are very popular since they make really special gifts, and when ordering it is best to plan early, as delivery time is around 10-14 days.


Name sweater (from £65)
Whether you’re buying for a baby or older child this Christmas, a name sweater makes a truly unique present. Our cozy name sweaters, which have the child’s name knitted across the chest, are hand knitted in a merino cashmere blend, making them incredibly soft. The sweaters have become extremely popular, and due to high demand it is best to order in November to ensure delivery in time for Christmas.

3 ideas for planning a special christening

When organising a christening it is easy to feel overwhelmed with opinions on how it should be done, and for new parents it is natural to want to make the christening feel like a truly special family event to welcome the new arrival

Create a link to your wedding
For married parents, it might be possible to have the christening in the same place as where the wedding took place. Having baby christened in the same church can make the day feel even more special for the parents, and if it’s even possible to celebrate the christening in the same venue as the wedding took place, it can bring back wonderful memories for parents, family and guests.

Personalise the christening outfit
One way to personalise a christening is by adding monogramming or a name to a new gown, which can become a family heirloom and handed down to future generations. Our stunning silk Marlborough christening gown, for example, can be personalised with machine-embroidered monogramming, and for boys it’s also popular to choose a romper set, which can be personalised with name or initials on the bodice.

Marlborough Christening Gown

Prepare a speech
On the day of the christening many parents choose to prepare a short speech or read a poem for baby. To make it truly special, the speech or poem can be framed and used as wall art in baby’s nursery, or stored in a memory box for baby to have when growing up.
