Shanade Tallentire Charity Auction

"Her name is Shanade Tallentire and she is 7 years old. She has a brain tumor, called a diffuse intrinsic glioma. It's growing in the part of the brain that controls the central nervous system." Shanade has been given six months to live - that was almost two months ago.

We were hugely touched by this story when approached to donate a few weeks ago. Watching the television interviews is just heartbreaking, and sad.
Jess, from Exquisite Baby, is the main organiser of a massive campaign to raise money for Shanade and her family, so they may enjoy the next few precious months as much as possible.
Starting Monday 5 October, 51 charity auctions have begun, to raise money for Shanade and her family. has donated a Kids Personalised Waffle Fleece Blanky to be auctioned. Bidding has already begun, so be sure to check out the auction here.

We wish Shanade and her family a happy and joyful stay in Auckland, and hope the next few months are as comfortable and happy as possible. xo

Personalised Baby Blankys half price?!

When someone you know has a baby, you can't help but want to give them something special - something that says "What you cradle in your arms is the most special thing you may ever experience!" Something that symbolizes just how special their bundle of joy is.

That's where our personalised baby blankys make a great gift to give to that special bundle. Not only are they made from ultra soft waffle fleece (much softer than normal fleece), but the parents won't be able to help but gush as they unwrap and see their baby's name spread across the blanky in large letters - a gift that will be treasured for many years to come.

Our baby blankys are not just for the cot - due to their ultra soft touch and bright coloured ribbons they are also wonderful to use during baby's 'tummy time' on the floor.
They are perfect for the car and pram/stroller too, making sure baby is snug and warm during transit.

Why not make Baby Blankys your signature gift when someone has a baby?

For three days only we are having a Crazy Half Price Sale on all waffle fleece baby blankys.

Lay-By is welcome - so take advantage now!
If you are a GOLD MEMBER you also recieve your GOLD MEMBER discount as well!

HURRY! Our Crazy Half Price Sale ends Monday 5 October!
