When looking at the top of your child’s Christmas wishlist you will most likely only see toys (and possibly a pet here or there) but most (grand)parents like to include some practical gifts too. A cool lunchbox for school, some clothes and new pyjamas are big favourites every year so make sure you add them to your shopping list for the upcoming weeks. For classic, durable, Australian designed sleepwear take a look at the latest collection by Four in the Bed:

Charlotte nightie

If your daughter is anything like my little girl who loves everything pretty and girly, she will be thrilled to find the gorgeous Charlotte nightie ($39.95) under the Christmas tree. This 100% cotton nightie features a lovely light blue stripe, button detail at the front and a beautiful broderie hem. Even though longer in length this nightie is lovely and cool.  I think the blue is very cute but if your little lady prefers white or pink there are some very cute girls nighties in other colours/styles available too.

For the boys there is also plenty of choice this summer. Those who prefer a traditional look will appreciate the stylish Classic PJ Set: a short sleeve button-up shirt and matching shorts, with choice of three timeless prints. My favourite is the Charlie Blue Check ($44.95), but if your son is crazy about ‘things that go’ he might be more excited about the bike or plane themed set instead.

A bit more casual and most definitely a bit hit with the boys are the Freddy Blue Ute and Freddy Red Tractor pyjama sets ($39.95). You can’t go wrong with a comfy pair of striped shorts teamed up with a ute or tractor t-shirt! All Four in the Bed designs are available in sizes 2 to 12, and owner and designer Ellie recently told us that the size range will go up to size 14 next year. It is obvious that kids of all ages love Four in the Bed!

Sunday Coffee with Four in the Bed

 Uncategorized  Comments Off on Sunday Coffee with Four in the Bed

This week was the first really warm here in Adelaide and it was definitely a hot one, hot during the day and still very sweaty at nighttime too. Time to get out the cool Summer pyjamas, something Ellie at Four in the Bed knows all about. Ellie has designed her own range of lovely, cotton childrens sleepwear that looks fabulous and will keep your little ones at the right temperature this Summer. Here’s a super quick catch up with Ellie and stay tuned for a fantastic Four in the Bed giveaway this week!

What does your ideal Sunday look like?
No pitter patter of feet down our hallway to our door until 9am – a cuddle and chat about what we dreamt about and then a leisurely breakfast on our front verandah (bacon, eggs, tomato with fresh basil) and a chance to flick through a magazine or two. Time to reply to personal emails and a solid hour’s natter on the phone with one of my girlfriends, uninterrupted. Then BBQ lunch in the paddock on one of our friends property’s that late into the afternoon and watching the sunset across the Hay Plains in the car on the way home.

Why did you start Four in the Bed?
Out of frustration of not being able to find classic cotton sleepwear for my own girls.

Where do you draw your inspiration from?
My own childhood.

What is currently your favourite Four in the Bed design?
Oh definitely the Olivia Camisole Set – I just love the broderie analgise scalloped hemline and the cool crisp cotton fabric.

What can we expect of Four in the Bed in the near future?
A bigger size range we will be up to size 14 for Autumn Winter next year. There is so much demand from customers wanting bigger sizes.

Easter is often a cue for the weather to take a colder turn, which is why a new pair of winter PJ’s is always a popular Easter gift. If you are looking for beautiful Australian designed sleepwear that is classic, enchanting, a little bit nostalgic and of course super comfortable you can’t go past Four in the Bed.

At the latest trade shows Four in the Bed was a big hit, with retailers and mums from all over the country loving this fabulous Australian label. Four in the Bed was created by mum Ellie, who struggled to find high quality sleepwear that looked great and was durable enough to be handed down. The gorgeous new Winter range features timeless gingham prints and petite florals, PJ sets, nighties and super cuddly robes for boys and girls aged 2 to 10.

I love the classic look of Four in the Bed, truly decent and proper sleepwear that looks as if it comes straight out of an enchanting picture book. I can just picture Goldilocks stepping around in a Four in the Bed nightie. My favourite design is the Miranda PJ set ($39.95), the combination of sweet florals and cute polka dots is just lovely and the little details add a beautiful finish to a high quality product.

As sleepwear is worn directly onto the skin it is more important than ever to choose natural materials that are soft, comfortable and breathable, synthetic fibres on the other hand can be itchy and sweaty which can interfere with your child’s sleep. Four in the Bed garments are generally of made of 100% cotton and comply with Australian Safety Standards for sleepwear.

At the start of the colder season Four in the Bed is setting one lucky boy or girl up with a cosy warm Four in the Bed Winter prize pack valued at $89.90. Our lucky winner gets to pick either a girls pack, containing a pair of Georgia Petite Floral Brushed Cotton PJ’s and Girls Super Soft Fleecy Robe or a boys pack, containing a pair of Max Stone Gingham PJ’s and a Boys Super Soft Fleecy Robe. Bring on the cold nights I’d say!
