Do you know a new Mama and want to give her a gift that is a little different, super stylish and full of goodness that every new mum needs? Heading to a Baby Shower and need the best gift in town? Far away but still want to send a gift full of love? Well then. Hello Mama has just what you are after.
Unique, modern gifts for Mums and Babes. No boring baby gifts. Nothing old school. Just beautifully packaged, super fun gift boxes. We adore them and will be gifting them to every new mum from this day on. Heck yes.
We had a chat to Kelly, the beauty behind the brand and Mama to Tex with another baby due in February. She shares where it all began, how she manages the juggle, her best business advice and more.
Hello Mama. Celebrating the baking of tiny humans.
TELL US A LITTLE ABOUT YOUR BUSINESS AND WHERE IT ALL BEGAN.
Hello Mama began when my best friend and I were pregnant at exactly the same time (pure coincidence is what we tell our husbands). She was living in the remote town of Broome, WA and I wanted to send her a little gift box to say congrats and help her get through the First Trimester. There were options out there, but nothing had exactly what I wanted.
So I created my own gift box for her, full of high quality and beautiful products. No daggy baby items here.
And Hello Mama just grew from there, offering gift boxes for Pregnant Mamas, New Mamas and our recent addition, Seasoned Mamas (you know the extra tired ones who have toddlers and spend their days preparing snacks?).
HOW DO YOU MANAGE THE MUM LIFE WORK LIFE BALANCE.
The eternal quest for balance! Allocating particular time slots in my day dedicated to Hello Mama/my son helped me to seperate family and business and focus on both parts of my life with my full attention instead of spreading myself thinly across all areas. It’s always a work in progress.
THROUGHOUT YOUR BUSINESS JOURNEY, WHAT IS THE BIGGEST LESSON YOU HAVE LEARNT IT.
Create a brand that is you and just stick to your guns. If you try to be someone you are not, the brand will feel inauthentic and customers can sense that from a mile away.
WHAT HAS BEEN YOUR BIGGEST BUSINESS HURDLE.
Packing orders and replying to emails within the very short nap time of one particular toddler.
WHAT ADVICE WOULD YOU GIVE SOMEONE STARTING A SMALL BUSINESS.
Don’t be afraid of your competition; they are helping to carve a space in the market for your products and should be warmly embraced/ stalked on Insta.
AND WHAT IS PLANNED FOR HELLO MAMA'S FUTURE.
A new baby so probably a lot of vomit and not much sleep. But after that little phase? Lots of new and exciting products we can’t wait to add to our gift box range.
