About Autumn Willow Newborn Gifts And Gift Boxes
Mother to seven daughters and grandmother (aka Mimi) to 2 granddaughters, founder Sharon realised, after her second daughter gave birth in a foreign country, that a small gesture of sending a pregnancy gift or a new mum gift/care package would have helped her daughter immensely in preparation for both pregnancy and birth.
As an interior designer with her own home and lifestyle store, Sharon decided to add a new side to the business that she felt could help and benefit expectant and new mum's, whether they were first time mothers or seventh time mothers! She set about re-branding and redesigning her company to also offer very considered and beautiful gift and care packages for expectant and new mum's and babies.
“I, of course, realise that nobody can prepare you for the birth of your first child however, now with hindsight (such a wonderful thing) it would have been great to have sent a “self-care package” to my daughter to enable her to realise that it was both okay and absolutely necessary for her to take some time for her own self-care. A book or a journal would have been another great way in helping her to navigate the journey that is motherhood!”
The quote from Kelly Rudolph says it all “Taking care of yourself makes you stronger for everyone in your life … including you” and it is the reason we have incorporated this quote into our complimentary gift card that can be included within our gift boxes.”
All the companies that we work with are ethical companies and are therefore cruelty free. All our skincare products and candles are vegan friendly, and we also have a selection of vegan friendly chocolates.
As many products as possible that we offer within our gift boxes and care packages are made organically and are free from parabens, sulphates, SLS’s, artificial colours and synthetic fragrances.
We want to support small, local businesses, and therefore as many of our products as possible have been sourced from within the UK. As well as sourcing products within the UK, and to maintain our sustainable values, all our packaging is eco-friendly so that our customers are provided with gift packaging that is not tainted by excessive amounts of non-recyclable plastics.
Our gift and care packages are the perfect gift for all mum's; we believe that all mum's deserve some self-care. They also help to support the care of pregnant women and newborn babies across the UK and worldwide.
It is with great pride that we will be donating £1 from every gift box/care package to Baby Lifeline. Baby Lifeline is a unique national charity supporting the care of pregnant women and newborn babies both nationally and worldwide.
