This beautiful looking pillow can be used during pregnancy to provide relief to pressure points in the neck, back, and hips – all while supporting your growing bump. What’s more, after your baby is born, it transforms into an ultra-comfortable, protective cocoon perfect for breastfeeding/bonding with your baby. The Anti-Roll Fin and Anti-Roll Barrier are designed to keep baby protected, making it a truly safe space.
The super-smart zipper system creates a feeding pillow for upright breast or bottle-feeding which then also doubles up as a tummy time pillow and a baby lounger for chill-out time.
A pillow with so many amazing uses, it’s a great investment.
Check out this super-cool new designs from Contigo. The straw and spill-proof design of the Gizmo Flip bottle means no more tiresome spills on clothes or furniture, making them the perfect choice for younger kids.

If everything goes to plan, the kids will be back in school in September. By now, the chances are they’ll have grown out of their school shoes, and it’ll be time to invest in a new pair.
Kickers have been busy making school shoes for over 20 years, so they understand the impact the wrong shoes can have on the development of your child’s feet. They also appreciate the uncertainty around the issue of schools reopening, and that’s why they’ve extended their returns and exchange policy to 180 days to give you extra peace of mind. They also have a new online measuring tool and shoe selector so you can select the perfect pair of school shoes from the comfort of your own home.
These gorgeous Bridie Flutter T-Bar shoes are my favourite! Made from high-quality leather with a robust, durable 360 outsole, and finished with a cute butterfly design and hot pink flowers on the soles.
Time to take the playground by storm in a pair of Kickers!
These gift sets from Matcha and Beyond would make the perfect present. Each set includes a premium matcha tin 30g and bamboo whisk. Matcha is the result of stoneground tea leaves, which are unheated to preserve their nutrients and far less processed than regular green tea leaves.
