We love posters for kids that function on two levels, they are educational as well as being beautiful art. Creating a home environment for our children that is beautiful and not garish aids in their upbringing, as it teaches them to also appreciate and value beauty.
Here’s a selection of our favourite posters. Check out the other products these great businesses create as well…

It was my mother-in-law’s birthday recently so I put this gift basket of self-care items together for her. It was easy to put together, the process was enjoyable and the end result, quite lovely.
The photos aren’t styled the best as I had to capture this quickly because three kids + had to head to the birthday dinner + trying to get ready + real life isn’t perfectly styled, BUT! it captures the process well enough.
So here goes…
What you need:
Medium/Large sized basket
Various gifts that the MIL will love. I chose self-care items that she could easily use, a baking book (because she loves baking), some beautiful V&A gardening gloves and a calendar/organiser for next year.
Two sheets of cellophane
How to put it together:
- Gather the contents to fill a medium-large sized basket. If you’re going to do this, go big or go home 😀 I got every single item from one store so that I didn’t have to run around curating them from various shops because let’s be real, ain’t nobody got time for that.
2. Grab basket. I got mine from Target.
3. Fill the bottom of the basket with newspaper.
4. Place cellophane in the basket. It was biodegradable folks, don’t shoot me for using plastic. Sometimes the plastic is necessary.
5. Arrange items in the basket with the biggest items at the back and work your way forward with the smallest items at the front. Throw in a faux flower for extra prettiness.
6. Place a second cellophane sheet over the top and secure to the basket by tying a ribbon around the front, like so. And voila! You have a beautiful gift basket, with hand-picked items especially for the MIL. It’s bound to earn you brownie points 🙂
Lately we have been loving these Instagram accounts…
Beautifully unique illustrations accompanied by profound reminders…
You know when you’ve just had a baby and people come to visit and expect you to be in a bubble of baby bliss but really you feel like crap, are aching all over, are terrified of being in charge of the survival of a baby and you want to be honest about this but can’t for fear of judgement so you just smile?
Well the geniuses over at @postpartumstress have created these brilliant cartoons that perfectly illustrate what mothers are really going through, and wish they could say but just can’t.
Full of important reminders about the fast fashion industry, peppered with ethical clothing options that can be bought from their site, Well Made Clothes is an IG account to follow if you’re trying to make the shift to purchasing clothing ethically.
