Nana Clair’s Gifts is a gorgeous online store full of fun, unique and beautiful gifts for kids of all ages, there is something there for everyone. We have already taken a closer look at the Tapikid Playmat range (enter the Nana Clair’s Gifts giveaway for your chance to win one!) but there is so much more cool stuff to look at. Every single item in store is carefully chosen by owner and mum Kelly, meet Kelly in today’s Sunday Coffee:
What does your ideal Sunday look like?
An ideal Sunday to me is waking up at our favourite family camping spot, Lake Cullulleraine (in northern victoria), where we have a hut. The sun would be shining, the birds chirping and the water in the lake looking very inviting (even better now the weather is warming up). Breakfast of course would be bacon and eggs cooked on the BBQ. The kids have a ball when we go camping, keeping busy swimming, fishing, cruising around on their bikes- it’s a great way to spend time as a family
Why did you start Nana Clair’s Gifts?
I started Nana Clair’s Gifts when I was on maternity leave with my second child (Our 3rd is only a couple of weeks away!). I knew I wanted, and needed to, return to work but also liked the idea of being a work from home Mum. I had always wanted to own my own shop, so I took the idea of selling gifts for kids and opened my own online shop- this provides the best of both worlds; I get to have my shop and spend more time at home with the kids. I liked the idea of providing a service particularly for other Mum’s, by providing great priced, quality items and offering free gift wrapping- making buying a present such an easy experience!
What do you like most about running your own store?
One advantage of owning my own on-line store is the fact that I get to spend more time at home with the family while still working. I also get great enjoyment out of gift wrapping the items people have purchased, wrapping them in beautiful paper and packaging the present up knowing it is going to an excited child out there for their birthday or another occasion. I get a lot of emails or Facebook comments from my customers letting me know that the presents were opened with great excitement and loved by their new owners. This feedback is always exciting to receive, and makes all the hard work worth it.
What is your favourite product at Nana Clair’s Gifts (at the moment)?
My favourite item at Nana Clair’s Gifts at the moment is the Wheely Bugs. My 2 yr old has the ‘Pig’ and is getting hours of fun cruising around the house- they really should make them for adults too!! Of course I cannot go past the range of Missi Missi Bean Bags we stock, these are just beautiful, so comfortable and soft and a real hit with the kids.
What can we expect of Nana Clair’s Gifts in the near future?
Hopefully the future will bring a lot more of the same at Nana Clair’s Gifts. As strange as that sounds, the aim is to keep offering a beautiful range of gifts for sale, providing the bonus offer of free gift wrapping, and excellent customer service. With Christmas just around the corner, there will be plenty of specials coming up. I personally love Christmas, it’s such fun time, and I look forward to sharing this special occasion with my customers.
