Bon Tot x Golden Hare Books! Newborn baby gift.
We are super excited to share a project we've been planning with our neighbours on St Stephen Street; the wonderful Golden Hare Books! Hello Baby is a baby gift box with a difference; carefully curated by 2 of Scotland's best independent businesses, it includes items that are beautiful and also essential for a newborn.
1 x board book (The Game of Red, Yellow and Blue by Herve Tullet)
1 x French muslin (100% cotton, in either milk or ink)
1 x hardback book (The Little Prince by Antoine de Saint-Exupery)
1 x natural wood rattle/teether
Designed to be the perfect baby gift for newborns and very little ones, it’s a thoughtfully curated selection of the most useful, beautiful items picked for longevity. Contains a board book full of vibrant colours to delight, a muslin of the softest cotton to care, a wood rattle/teether to play and a timeless classic to grow up with. Each item is ungendered and hand-packaged in a magnetic keepsake box, with a bespoke paper wrap and postcard designed by Edinburgh graphic designer Esther Clayton, printed in Edinburgh.
Julie (the driving force behind Golden Hare) and I are such good pals, and big champions and fans of the other's business, we really wanted to do something together. We love Golden Hare so much, that rather than stock books ourselves, we send people to Julie. And likewise, if one of Julie's customers is looking for a baby gift, Julie sends them a few doors down the street to us. After a while, we realised that a great baby gift would be a combination of our 2 shops, and our 2 brands... and so. Here we go!
Golden Hare was recently voted Best Independent Bookshop in the UK at the British Book Awards, and Bon Tot one of the best 50 boutiques in the UK by Stella Magazine, so this is gift for all discerning new mums and dads out there!

Available online and in both stores now, we're so excited by this project and really happy to be able to work with Julie and her team to bring beautiful books and keepsake gifts to a whole new world of little readers.
