Festive Business Mum Of The Month - Jennifer from Scamp Baby Gifts

This month we want to introduce you to another local mumpreneur who makes and sells absolutely beautiful things for children and babies. Jennifer, who lives in North London, wrote to us to introduce her business and we fell in love with it straight away and want to buy everything! So, we thought she was the perfect person to introduce to our readers at this time of year.....

Jennifer, Stacey and children (Jennifer is on the right)

Jennifer set up Scamp Baby Gifts with her sister Stacey when they had their own children.  They come from a crafty family themselves and love unusual and beautiful handmade things. When they found that these were hard to find, they decided to make them themsleves and Scamp was born.

The company, which launched in 2010, began with an exclusive hand made collection of embroidered and personalised appliqu├ęd pictures but the products proved so popular the range has quickly grown.  Now the Scamp studio produces everything from ‘Snuggle Up’ buggy blankets and Little People Pictures, personalised with a child’s name.  There are also funky baby grows, bibs and tote bags in the new Screen Print Collection as well as beautiful framed keepsakes and hand stamped new baby cards and gift tags.

We love these children's cushions shown below that would really brighten up a child's bedroom:

We also love the really great range of nursery wall art:

So we recommend that you visit www.scampbabygifts.co.uk and  take a look at the lovely things on offer.

We asked Jennifer what her words of advice for other mums setting up in business would be and she said:

Starting my own business has been at times a steep learning curve and challenge, but one I have no regrets taking on! My main advice would be to do your research to make sure your idea can fly in the first place. Assuming it can another very useful area I have worked on is social networking - it is worth investing time in following related organisations, mums doing similar things, other small companies etc on Twitter and Facebook - they are often very useful for help on issues, finding out about relevant events that might be going on and sometimes just nice to know you aren't the only one trying to do what you are doing!


If you like what you see and you would like to win a really great gift for a baby or little person in time for Christmas, Jennifer is offering one NLM reader the chance to win an initial picture (obviously with the initial of your choice). These are really lovely gifts and some examples are below:
