Finding the Right UK Baby PresentWhen a friend or member of your family has a baby, you want to make sure you can give them a thoughtful present that will show them that you are thinking of them. By choosing one of our unique and personalised items you can do just that and you can even pick up a greeting card to go with it. We are specialists at delivering presents for newborns and when you choose to have your order sent directly to the recipient, we will make sure the parcel looks and feels like a gift from the moment it is delivered and obviously we will not include an invoice! We will also package everything securely and double check the order before we send it so you can benefit from peace of mind. We know how busy you are which is why we have designed our website so that finding and ordering the perfect pressie takes only a few simple clicks of the mouse. You can browse by occasion, by gender or by style. Once you reach the category pages you can further filter the results by selecting options from the left hand menu. This allows you to refine the product selections by age group, price bracket, gender and more. Online shopping has never been so easy! We also cater for older kids and you can pick up some really nice birthday presents via the appropriate section of the store.
What Makes Our Products SpecialOur products are designed with parents in mind as we know through experience what mums and dads find most useful. We offer a range of goods; from functional products that serve a purpose to expensive items that carry a designer label and a high price tag but that ultimately may only be used a handful of times! We also stock traditional items such as silver photo frames, wooden trains and engraved keepsake trinkets. A great deal of thought goes into our products. For example, our wicker baskets are packed with organic cotton clothes, toys, toiletries and gift-items that look stunning but come in very handy in the first few months. However, the layette sets also include several choice items of clothing in larger sizes too to increase the longevity of the gift-sets.
International Orders WelcomeWe specialise in delivering unique, personalised gift baskets to new parents around the world. Wherever you are in the world, if you have a baby to buy for in the UK or abroad, you can count on us to fulfill the order beyond your expectations. If your order is being delivered within the UK, it will arrive the very next day if you choose our the next day delivery service during checkout. We also offer a standard UK service and gifts sent via this method usually arrive within one day. European delivery takes around 3-5 working days and the rest of the world takes around 7 working days. We deliver to all European countries including France, Ireland, Spain, Italy, Germany, Netherlands, Sweden, Denmark, Czech Republic and Belgium and the following destinations outside the EU: Australia, Canada, Hong Kong, Japan, New Zealand, USA and South Africa. There are a significant amount of variables that affect international postage. Please be aware that any delivery times for international shipping that are listed on our website are estimations only and we cannot guarantee how long it will take our prezzies to arrive by Airmail.
Free Parenting ResourcesAs well as offering a range of luxurious products, we also give all our visitors free access to our blog pages. These pages contain a wide range of free information for new parents and you can access this resource whenever you desire via the top menu. As well baby-related news and celebrity gossip, the blog focusses on educating you about the options that are available to in order to help your baby to sleep through the night. We aim to provide impartial, objective information so you can make your own decisions about what is right for your family - we'll never lecture you on the best way to raise your children.
We also use the blog and forum to keep you up to date about special offers, new product lines and company news. Did you know for example that we carefully hand-pick every one of our products from major brands around the globe? Every now and then we will also come across a small boutique store we like and if they produce items that are extremely high quality, unique and good value for money then we won't let their modest size prevent them from becoming one of our suppliers. Our main priority is finding the best possible goods to fill our online shelves and we have some lovely, great selling lines that are supplied by small family-run companies. However, for the majority of our products come from established brands. This is not just because they carry a label that people trust but because they utilise economies of scale and can often manufacture items at a higher quality and lower price than smaller competitors.
Our Music CompanyAs well as being leading online retailer of exquisite products carefully sourced from around the globe, we also offer our customers a range of audio products for children which are record in-house at our recording studios in York, UK. Please click here to find out more about our children's music publishing arm. Our growing catalogue comprises numerous titles which are available on CD and mp3 download via this site as well as via selected retail partners such as iTunes and Amazon. The titles currently in our collection include an award winning acoustic lullaby album 'Acoustic Lullabies to Soothe the Soul', a collection of original fairy tales entitled 'Snoozy's Adventures in Lullaby Land', a contemporary nursery rhyme album 'Dance and Dream' and a selection of personalised lullabies that are consistently one of our best selling and most popular product lines. 2013 is set to be a big year for Lullaby Babies and we plan to expand our catalogue significantly over the coming months. We ship our personalised lullabies all over the globe as people from all walks of life are touched by the immensely personal nature of the CDs and their ability to capture the magic of a new life being brought into the world. We plan to extend our range in the next few months and are in the process of acquiring a licence to record a number of albums from famous artists and bands in a variety of styles and genres. The feedback we have had from these has been incredible and we can't wait until they're ready for general release.
What Makes Our Products Unique?At Lullaby Babies we understand that finding luxury, affordable items for children is a difficult challenge. You want to find something that will demonstrate the thought and effort that you have put into the present-buying process but you don't want to spend hours of your time searching aimlessly. High-street products tend to be of high quality which is why this is still the most common approach. A major disadvantage of this approach is that even if you find some great gifting ideas, you may find someone else buys the same thing. Finding beautiful products online is not without its share of problems either. The standard of product quality and customer service varies immensely from store to store and this can often lead to disappointment. Therefore, our mission statement is to provide the quality of product and service to rival a leading high-street retailer, coupled with the uniqueness of unusual offerings that only internet web-stores can offer. We offer a one day dispatch time, a quick & efficient response to any queries you may have and a full, no-quibble, money-back guarantee in the unlikely event you are dissatisfied.
Gifting OccasionsOur presents are ideal for giving to commemorate a New Birth, a Christening, a Naming Ceremony, a First Christmas, a Birthday or a Baby Shower (to name a few!) Many items in our range are suitable for boys and girls as we use neutral colours which we find more modern and elegant than the traditional pink and blue colours anyway.
Special OffersWe often run promotions, discounts and free giveaways to our loyal customers and to attract new mums and dads to our site. If you enter you email address in the box in the top right hand corner of the web page you will instantly receive a 5% discount code that you can spend on any product in the store. We will also let you know of any competitions, prizes, freebies and coupons as soon as they are available so it's well worth signing up. By opening an account with us you will be able to track deliveries, print invoices, view past orders and more. You will also be able to read the content in our forum and blog and you'll be able to comment and contribute to the discussion as little or as much as you like.
Postage & PackagingWe find it frustrating when websites advertise their gift-items at low prices but add a disproportionate amount on for p&p at the checkout stage. By shopping with us, you do not have to suffer this annoyance. Your order is guaranteed to be dispatched within one working day of ordering. Unfortunately, it isn't possible to absolutely guarantee a delivery date with Royal Mail First Class, however, the vast majority of orders will arrive within one or two working days. If you order a gift-basket, it will be sent via Special Delivery and if you order before 2pm it will be with you the next working day. You have the option of receiving our other products urgently as well. You can choose special (next-day) delivery at the checkout stage for any product. Royal Mail charges start at £4.95 for this service but guarantee the package will be delivered the next working day (some postcode exceptions apply).
A Word From Our Managing DirectorThere are so many products designed for babies these days. Some of these are wonderful items that are produced ethically from natural and organic materials. Unfortunately, there is also a great deal of low quality product on the market today. As consumers, we have to be careful about what chemicals are in the products we buy, especially when shopping for a baby. Many dangerous substances have thankfully been identified and banned from the production process in the UK but the long-term effects of many legal chemicals remain unknown. Fortunately, this has caused a strong shift in consumer demands recently. The value of buying natural products has been increasingly publicised over the last decade and the message is finally affecting our spending habits. In the baby market especially, consumers are happy to pay a little bit more for organic products, especially luxurious presents, clothes, toys, christening keepsakes and toiletries. This has put real pressure on retailers and manufacturers to increase the quality of their products dramatically and to change the way they do business in general. However, some manufacturers are using clever packaging and marketing to disguise their true colours. Consumers can easily buy a product that they have been lead to believe is natural and green, only to discover a concoction of questionable items on the ingredients list."
"I started this boutique so customers could have a place to come where they could trust every product that was on sale. I spent months researching and sourcing special presents from around the world. I consider the products on sale here to offer exceptional value for money. For example, I had heard that natural sea sponges were unbeatable for delicately cleansing a baby’s skin. I discovered a range of suppliers that sold authentic sponges at a retail price from anywhere between two pounds and fifteen pounds! These sponges came in a variety of types and sizes. The most expensive type was the large honeycombe sponges and these were advertised as the top of the range. However, further research lead me to discover that although these were the best for an adult’s exfoliation skincare routine, they were not necessarily the best for babies. I went on to find that the Natural Silk Sponges were the best type for a child’s skin because of their luxuriously soft quality. I found a company that imported these directly from the bed of the Mediterranean Sea and went to great lengths to ensure that this was done sound environmental practices. These outstanding quality sponges are included in our hampers or available individually for four pounds each." R Jenkinson, Managing Director.
