I know you all love scoring a great bargain, especially around Christmas time when the budget can be a little stretched, but I also know you don’t want to give in on style and still want to buy something unique and beautiful. If you have cute little bundles on your list of people to shop for this December I have got an awesome sale for you:

During the month of November La Mami is clearing the shelves at ridiculously cheap prices. All stock is reduced by up to 70% and every order receives FREE shipping Australia wide! Be quick though, offer is valid this month only and these bargains will sell out fast.

ColorStories Milky Way PeachOver the past months I have introduced you to quite a few of the brands you’ll find at La Mami and I didn’t want to keep the gorgeous ColorStories range from you. European label ColorStories has created a lovely collection of bed linen and blankets for babies and toddlers that is sure to compliment anu nursery beautifully. I myself am particularly taken by the wonderful Story About Courage Bedding (was $99, now $45), if only I had a baby boy to shop for!

ColorStories Story about Courage

ColorStories Story about Courage bed linen

The delightful illustrations on the ColorStories Story About Courage (boys) and Story about Love (girls) bed linen are designed by talented artist Agata Raczynska. These sweet images are meant to inspire children and their parents to create their very own bedtime stories so that bedtime becomes an exciting, fun, special time and beautiful memories are made. Such a welcome change from the mass produced licensed linen you see in big department stores.

ColorStories Knitted BlanketsThe ColorStories Knitted Blankets (were $99, now $45) make a classic, timeless gift that will be treasured for years to come. These soft cotton blankets are simple but that exactly what makes them so charming, a lovely heirloom gift with many uses. The classic knit allows for lots of movement and breathability, we use this blanket in the pram and car as it so easy to tuck in on the sides. There are six stylish colours to choose from to suit both boys and girls with gender neutral options available too.

Many children have a ‘favourite’ soft toy, the one they drag around wherever they go and the one they sleep with at night time. Unfortunately when she was a baby none of the beautiful toys I showed my oldest daughter tickled her fancy, instead she set her heart on a fluffy rabbit named Duncan. Duncan is a sweet little number but he is hard to get in Australia and over the last 3 years I have needed a few replacements and spares that had to come from overseas. I wish I had known about the very hip knitted Huglees toys back then, they are designed right here in Australia so they are much easier to get and definitely much cuter too!

My personal favourite is Squeaks the Mouse, at 30cm tall he is very generously sized for a mouse and his arms, legs and tail are perfect for little hands to grab on to. Thanks to his multi coloured spots this friendly mouse is suitable for both boys and girls and a perfect gender neutral gift for an unborn baby too. The Huglees toys comply with Australian and New Zealand safety standards so they are safe from birth onwards.

Huglees are designed by Australian mum Renae and like all mums she knows that favourite toys get lots of cuddles and are a part of everything kids do (even the messy things) so they do need a bit of a clean sometimes which is why Huglees are hand washable. If your little one can’t handle the wait whilst his Huglees friend is being washed and dried, or worse if he gets lost or broken, you should have no trouble getting a doppelganger (a big benefit of buying Australian designs).

You can find the Huglees ($24.95-$29.95) at La Stork, to order visit
