We’re mega fans of online lifestyle boutique Lula Sapphire, not least because it’s the store that convinced Bambino Goodies founder to start the blog so that she could celebrate finding somewhere full of utterly wonderful delights. An all round store featuring clothing, books, toys, gifts, furniture, decor accessories, parenting gear, essentials and equipment and more, it’s a melting pot of cool brands from around the world.
Why we love it: It’s like a little department store for little people and one of the loveliest looking sites we know designed by design duo Showler and Showler. It’s a visual pleasure and even though you’re not in a bricks and mortar store, the look and feel make it one of those rare just as pleasurable experiences. Never disappointing, it’s full of well priced cool treats in a variety of prices, and they have fast delivery and excellent customer service.
What are they great for buying: Their toy section is exceptional and they always have amazing buys that make them a goto at birthdays and christmas time. Most of their toys are eco friendly and they’re all toys that last – excellent for unusual wooden toys with high play value. They also give good blanket, divine felt hair accessories, and a robust collection of mega US designers DwellStudio. But really, all of their sections are great and they’re brilliant for buying gifts with a handy under a tenner section.
What brands do they sell: Ann-Claire Petit, Bloom, Boob, Boon, Brio, Brother Max, Danefae, Djeco, DwellStudio, ej sikke lej, Eric Carle, Glug Baby, Green Baby, Green Cotton, Hippy Chick, Kuster, Katvig, Latitude Enfant, Paperpod, Petit Bateau, Olive and Moss, Skibz, Skip Hop, Vilac, and Wall Candy Arts.
