We started off 2019 doing what we enjoy most.... supporting Charities. We have provided our Baby Boxes to Alternatives Watford for some time now and feel incredibly proud to make such a difference. The community support Angela Such and her team provide in Watford is amazing and we always feel proud to talk about their achievements. We provide a brand new Baby Box, with a luxury mattress and 100% organic cotton sheet. Alternatives Watford then fill the Baby Boxes with everything a new parent needs. Most importantly, they also provide support and counselling. This support is so valuable as we believe all babies deserve the best start in life! Here is a photo of when we visited in May and spent the day helping the volunteers fill the Baby Boxes. We had a great day.
In February, we launched our very own clothing range. We felt the time was right and with feedback from our customers, we launched our bespoke British Baby Box organic clothing range. Pure white with a hand embroidered silver star, the feedback we received has been wonderful. We also introduced three clothing sets, perfect for gifts as they come in magnetic keepsake boxes.
Throughout the next few months, we continued to support Charities like 'It Takes A Village', 'The Baby Guru' and had the pleasure of visiting Little Village in London. Little Village is a Charity set up to provide all the essentials baby and parent needs. Their work is inspirational and they have been rewarded for their hard work by being supported by Prince Harry and Megan.
We also started a Linked In marketing campaign to encourage companies to provide their employees with a Bespoke Baby Box when they leave for maternity/paternity leave. Every company has a different budget, so can chose what they would like to spend, then the process is simple. Let us know who the employee is and their Baby Box is sent. What a lovely gift! We both wish this exsisted when we left the corporate world to become Mums! This initiative is proving really popular, so if you think your company maybe interested, contact us firstname.lastname@example.org or call me on 07850220661 to discuss your companies requirements.
With 2019 flying past, we managed to find time to exhibit at The Essex Baby Show in November. We love this show, as we see many of our existing customers who come along to say hello and also enjoy meeting new customers who may never have seen a Baby Box before. We also showcased our clothing range and sold out of our gift sets!! They were proving to be adorable Christmas gifts!!
We haven't slowed down in December as our contract with the Scottish Government continues, work on the BSI Baby Box standard is building momentum and we are also speaking to various Baby Banks around the country.
2020 is going to be the busiest ever, so thank you again for your support and lets continue to give all babies the best start in life.....
