My friend Nici from suggested I do a blog. I've never done one before but felt quite excited about the prospect of sharing with others how I started up my business and how successful its become!

I'm a single mum and became a Grand Mother at the grand old age of 39!
When my daughter and her husband told me the news I was so excited!! and decided to move back from Spain.
It was actually 2 weeks before the baby was due to arrive when I moved back to England and 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... here's a photo of it.

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!

I like to offer my customers something a little different, as I mentioned I have just added a 'Hand Knitted by Nanny Murray"  range and the animal slippers are selling like hot cakes!!  My Grand Daughter Mylee has just sadly grown out of the biggest size I do, which is such a shame because they kept her feet so cozy warm and because they were so novel she loved wearing's a photo of them!

I sell a lot of gifts for Baby Showers! They started off as an American idea but have become so popular here in the last couple of years! The gift sets/baskets & Nappy Cakes I sell all came beautifully packaged and are my top sellers.
Purchasing a gift from the website also takes all the stress out of hunting for a gift around all the shops  .
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;

You can also follow!/lullabybabygift on twitter for offers etc or 'like' us on
