If you’re getting bored of your decor, an easy way to spruce up your home is with decorative cushions. You’ll find beautiful prints at Krftd (pronounced ‘crafted’), the locally based pillow and cushion specialist that uses fabrics from U.S. textile designers with customisable options. First starting out as a home and decor company, Krftd has expanded into babies and kids products, the latest one being the Snuggy pillow – made with 100% organic cotton and filled with natural bean sprout husks, it provides little ones with a sense of comfort and security by simulating the touch of a hand. Mamas are even recommended to sleep with the Snuggy pillow before introducing it to their babies to imprint their scent! Available in a variety of cute prints (we’re especially smitten over the Christmas collection!) these are great for mamas of newborns, or as baby shower gifts.

The newest 100% natural New Zealand skincare brand has just reached our shores! Using only unique plant-derived ingredients harvested on their own 3,000-acre farm located on one of the pollutant-free spots on the planet, Sven’s Island products came about after founder Sven spent 30 years making all-natural remedies for sensitive skin issues and body/skin problems. From face care to all-purpose ointments and treatments for babies, we’re particularly loving their Spot Less Face Cleanser that leaves skin fresh and moisturised without any tightness, and the award-winning Fresh Face Anti-Ageing Face Cream that leaves zero greasiness while boosting hydration.
