About Baby Keepsakes

Baby Keepsakes was officially born in September 2017 but has been in the making for around 9 months prior (we know it’s cliché but the domain was purchased in December 2016, so it’s more a coincidence!).

We bring together the most talented small, creative businesses from across the UK that make beautiful and unique baby keepsakes and thoughtful personalised gifts just for you.

Mark each of your baby’s milestones with one of the many products our sellers expertly make. From baby shower gifts to birth announcements, beautiful keepsake jewellery and artwork for the nursery. You will be truly spoilt for choice.

Use the wish list to build a gift list to share with relatives so you are left with gifts you truly love.

A note from our founder Lisa

“Around 4 years ago I set up my own creative business, Beanstalk Keepsakes. I wanted to bring beautiful, bespoke keepsakes and gifts to the Mums in my local area.

Having babies impacts our lives in so many ways but I wanted to give the Mums I met something special, that they can look at in years to come and think “Wow, was my baby really that little?” and reminisce about the first years. As I only know too well that they just whizz by so fast.

Since I started, I have had a tremendous success in the local area and online, being nominated for a Muddy Stilletto award in May 2017 and being a featured business for Quickbooks UK in March 2017.

Whilst I loved making each item I have quickly realised that marketing is my passion. I came a bit stuck at one point and thought, “how do other businesses manage to market as well as work on making?” I tell you now it’s no easy feat when you are a one person band and I know there are so many creative businesses out there that are just waiting for their first big break and I wanted to help them.

And that’s where I dreamt up Baby Keepsakes, an online marketplace for creative businesses to sell their baby keepsakes and personalised gifts.

There are other marketplaces out there of course, but there is nothing as niche as this website. We bring small businesses that are struggling to meet their target customers together with Mums, Dads and their families who I know will love their beautiful, unique products to mark their baby’s milestones all on one online boutique if you like.

I hope you love shopping on our website as much as I have loved putting it together.
