Where do you shop if you have a baby on the way, want him/her to look stylish and want to incorporate travel? It’s a toughie, but after scouring the net over the last few months I’ve found some stellar brands and boutiques from around the world. I think you’re going to love them too.
It was a hard slog if I’m honest, so it’s only fair that I share them with you. If you’re not a mama (or daddy), or pregnant, bookmark this post for when that day comes round. Oh and if you’re looking for the perfect baby shower gift, you’ll undoubtedly find something from these faves.
This little brand was recommended to me by a few friends. Everything they sell is made in the UK and the designs are geared for people who want to break away from the clichés of blues and pinks. The focus is on bedding and clothes, with the printed leggings being my favourites. The elephant print ones remind me of my trip to Africa without being too cutesy and the Mr Bear leggings scream Canada to me.
This Australian company have a small selection of beautifully designed threads for little ones, with the prints changing regularly. They’re made with the softest, organic material and use non-toxic dyes. I bought the ‘Fiesta’ print babygrow and wrap because I loved the cool, Mexican design. My guy can also use the wrap as a muslin without feeling too girly. Two Tykes? Two thumbs up.
This quirky company is based in Spain and stocks the coolest accessories for your little one. You could easily lose a few hours browsing the novelty and arty designs on their website. However, it’s the tepees that I love. They’re perfect for a mini-explorer and I’ve already eyed up the mint one for my little bambino’s first birthday.
Based in London (obvs), these guys stock a variety of stylish baby brands. I guess the travel theme isn’t in your face so to speak and is open for interpretation, but I love the award-winning cocoon sleep bag as the blue, white and grey colours remind me of my trip to Iceland. They also stock a gorgeous high chair that is the epitome of Danish design.
Where, oh where to begin? I could easily buy everything on this website, but if I really, really had to pick it’d be the gum ball rugs. They’re handmade in Nepal using hundreds of felt balls and are fair-trade and ethically sourced. Olli Ella is also home to the well-loved belly baskets that are made in Vietnam. This coral dipped one is gorgeous, as are the rest of the beautiful designs.
I hate milk, so the name of this little boutique isn’t massively appealing to me. However, they have some adorable travel-inspired pieces in their collection so I won’t hold it against them! The tepee and arrow leggings are my fave, but the moose leggings that offer a subtle nod to Canada also look pretty sweet.
These guys are another Aussie brand. I ordered a few of their baby harems – so cute! Again, the designs frequently change so if you have your heart set on a particular print order quickly. I love the Aztec sloughy pants and poncho. So much travel style cuteness!
