This week I got my first baby gift through the post from my lovely cousin, and it got me thinking about all the lovely gifts you receive from family and friends when you have a baby.
I have been so much more relaxed this time around with buying loads of things for Charlie’ s arrival next week because I know how much I was lucky enough to be given with Frankie.
Two weeks before Frankie was born I woke up one morning In a massive panic that I didn’t have enough, so dragged my partner Tom out the door to go shopping and buy everything I thought I needed. Let’s just say after all the gifts we received Frankie was a very spoilt boy and had a better wardrobe than Victoria Beckham!!
When I received my first gift for Charlie it got me thinking of all the wonderful small independant shops I have found through Instagram!
It is truly amazing how Instagram has opened my eyes up to how many talented ladies are out there.
So today I am going to be featuring some beautiful stores all through the world of Instagram.
I posted a post on my page a couple of days ago calling all small shops to help me out and show me all their lovely products. I am truly overwhelmed by the amount of people that took the time to enter my competition and it really was THE hardest decision picking out the winners of the feature. I had over two hundred entrys and really would have loved to write about every store.
I was initially going to be featuring 5 baby boy gifts and five baby girl gifts but I started driving myself mad and couldn’t choose so I am now doing 7 of each.
Frankie is OBSESSED with Toy story at the moment so I’ve got him all set up the sofa, obviously with woody in hand, Toy story on and now I’m able to start going through all the amazing shops that entered!
I hope you all enjoy looking through all these gorgeous newborn gifts!
