When I gave birth to my first son, I left the hospital not only with my gorgeous baby in hand, but with seven (yes, seven) pairs of baby shoes...
My generous and well-meaning visitors all seemed to receive the same memo, and sadly, not even one pair ever made it onto Isaac’s feet (blame the January heat and his 2-year-old sized feet at birth).
While I was obviously completely overjoyed with their generosity (and the complete gorgeousness), I did return home without ever having considered buying more than one muslin wrap, and with a true hankering for a glass of champagne.
It seems that Kathryn Cumming – the founder of June July – must have had a similar experience, because upon receiving her delightful gift boxes for new mothers, I was floored by their practicality and their beauty. They’d clearly been prepared by a mother who had done this before.
Unsurprisingly, June July was born out of Kathryn’s own frustration in finding appropriate – yet beautiful – gifts for new mothers. Now, with her selection of perfectly curated gift boxes, we can rest assured that the new mothers in our lives can be gifted with a completely usable, entirely adorable package that will contain a little something for the baby (hello, lovely Alimrose bibs and bunnies) and importantly, something for mama (Moet and chocolate, anyone?).
We spoke to Kathryn about the launch of June July, straight after we added the site to our Bookmarks, to have a cart ready to go for every expecting woman in our lives.
