the cutest shops & presents for your baby
Cute baby & children clothing / furniture boutiques are still a quite rare find in Switzerland. So I'm quite happy about every creative new label and boutique.
Here's already a selection of my current favourite local stores and online shops! Why I chose them? They care about the sources and quality of their products. We should all care about what our babies wear or eat/drink out of. It may cost us a little more, I know. But to me it's definitely worth it. I rather relinquish on a few new pieces for me and invest into our son!
In case you're still preggers> put those things onto your baby shower wish list!
And now go and visit all those pretty stores! Their websites are already great, but being inside the shops is so much better (and dangerous for you purse) ;) > don't blame me!
yolyo - concept store
It was love at first sight! The concept store is located in our new neighbourhood, perfect! All of their fabrics are organic. It's definitely worth the tram ride since the store offers a wide selection. I actually would want everything > not only the cute bath towel and changing mat from (Liewood) ;0)
Combine your trip to the store with coffee / lunch at the Brasserie Freilager right across from the shop (they offer a kids corner equipped by yolyo).
The cute things from anne-claire petit and the fashion pieces from Mondkind Berlin are still on my mind!
Yay Kids - online store
You know that people behind a store care, when already the packaging is super cute. The selection is just incredible. I think the owner and I have a few things in common when it comes to style the bubba. YAY - more of it please!
SNOWFLAKE - concept store
Cuteness overload!! And such a huge variety of everything. Toys, furniture, clothes... It's kind of paradise being inside the store. And the shop will be even bigger in a little while. Sara and her team are moving to a location not too far away from where the shop is right now. I'm already excited about it! Our boy sleeps in a sleeping bag (Aiden & Anais) which I got from Snowflake and he loves it. And while putting him to bed I play him the sound from the music mobile (Liedwood).
Check out the super cute dolls from Hazel Village Brooklyn. You can buy them at Snowflake. So pretty!
YIV - YOUR IDEAL VINTAGE
No plastic - it's fantastic!
There's plastic everywhere, and it's poisson! So why should our babies eat from it?
YIV is a very conscious business. They manufacture in Austria (handmade). The enamelled tableware is very durable, made out of natural material and 100% recyclable.
The new baby in their shop: an organic cotton blanket and cushion!
(GOTS standard > an ecological and social liable textile production, produced in Austria).
To me investing into a solid set of tableware was very important, Because good quality simply lasts longer.
TING - concept store
Welcome to Zurich TING. They just opened their doors in the centre of Zurich (15' by foot from Zurich-Hardbrücke / main station).
It's not exclusively a store for children clothing but they carry a cute selection for your babies / kids. My favourites labels at TING are: petit stellou (Swiss made), Bloomingville, Design Letters and ferm LIVING kiDs.
