Unisex gifts for kids & babies 👶

Your baby's bedding should be as good as, or better than, your own, and we have the perfect option: the charcoal melange cot duvet set, made by Lola&Peach. Luxurious, soft, jersey knit. And at only R510 this one's a real winner if you're stuck for a gift. Also available in pink.

On Hello Pretty you'll find a boat-load of quality, unique options suitable for any baby or child,  so prepare yourself for an exciting browse-athon!

25 ways to avoid the mall this Christmas

We all hate it. And we all do it. Last-minute Christmas shopping! It is the worst, and people are the worst. We are the worst.

But, I'm going to share some sage words from my sister a few weeks ago:

It's  a no-brainer, people. Look no further for your Christmas shopping. There are beautiful things for every taste and budget, right on this website. But don't believe me - go see for yourself.

So yes. Today is Tuesday, which means it's newsletter day! As we mentioned before, subscribing to our newsletter is a good way to stay ontop of sales, giveaways, freebies and special discount codes! Here's a little 40%-er from this week's newsletter:

Today we mostly featured things with a general Christmassey and gifting vibe, and some holiday goodness. I've put up a taster below.

Listed up at the top is my personal favourite from Lovilee :-)

There were literally dozens and dozens more things I wanted to include (but didn't, because gmail chops off content that is too long).

Be sure to sign up, if you haven't already.



Spooks and spiders

This week we've embraced the halloween spirit in our weekly mailer, Pretty Cool. As you can see from our little sampling, we actually have a decent selecion of snakes, spooks and spiders for you to enjoy (or be disturbed by - to each their own). We even finished it off with a halloween version of our logo, the Hello(ween) Pretty.

You should get in on the action using the signup form below. Sometimes there are surprise giveaways and freebies. Just last week we gave R50 to all of our subscribers. Pretty rad, imo - there is such thing as a free lunch, as it turns out.

Here's a snapshot of some of the things in this week's edition. Sign up down at the bottom of this page so you can get these curated, hand-picked favourites from the Hello Pretty team each week.
