It is celebrations all around for the team at Natural Baby Shower as we celebrate what a year 2019 has been. From the very beginning, we’ve made it our mission to provide parents with natural and sustainable products that are the very best for parents and babies, but also the planet all under one roof. What started as a small business running from Vic's kitchen table, has grown into the leading independent retailer - loved and trusted by families all around the world. We have stuck to our original promise and continue to go on the hunt for the most stylish, safest and sustainable baby and parenting products on the planet.

We believe it is our dedication to championing all things natural and organic to help parents approach parenting in a natural way that makes us unique and our commitment to bring parents only the highest quality, sustainable and safe products that makes us stand out and keeps all of our amazing customers coming back. So, we were thrilled to receive 2 special awards this year that helped recognise all of our efforts and we are so proud of both of them.

2019 has been an amazing year, keep reading to find out more about our newest awards that we’ve added to our trophy cabinet.

Natural Baby Shower wins “Best Online Retailer” Award 2019!

This award was a big one, and we were up against stiff competition so were thrilled when we our name was called out for winning “Best Online Retailer” at the Baby Awards 2019. This award is recognition that we have grown into a really valued and respected nursery retailer that people love.

“This award means so much to me and everyone at Natural Baby Shower. It is our passion for the planet that makes us unique and our commitment to bring parents only the highest quality, sustainable and safe products is at the heart of everything we do. After 12 years, to win such a prestigious award makes me so proud.” – Vics Hampson, Founder of Natural Baby Shower.

The Baby Awards 2019, featuring the Little London Awards, champion excellence in pregnancy, baby and children’s brands. Now in their fifth year, the Awards have swiftly become the most respected and relevant Awards in the industry. Their “Best Online Retailer” category celebrates online retailers in the industry known for their product range, online shopping experience and excellent service.

This award recognises Natural Baby Shower as the “Best Online Retailer” and supports our mission and promise to offer beautiful eco-friendly baby brands that are best for baby, best for parent and best for the environment.

But we didn't just stop there! We were also lucky enough to receive another award.

We won the "Positive Social Impact" award

We treasure and appreciate every award we are lucky enough to receive. But this one really meant a lot to everyone at Natural Baby Shower due to the fact it recognises the positive social impact our business is having. 

We were recently invited along to attend the Surrey Heath Business Awards which celebrates the best of local businesses and entrepreneurs.

Natural Baby Shower are proud to announce that we won the Positive Social Impact award for our on-going dedication to making a positive contribution to the local area and environment.

This award means so much to everyone at Natural Baby Shower. It recognises one of our core values 'We are responsible for our impact on the planet and the communities around us.' Natural Baby Shower is best for baby, best for parent + best for environment.

From hand picking only the best organic and environmentally friendly products for families, to our 100% recyclable packaging in store and online, Natural Baby Shower make it their mission to make this planet a little greener. It’s not just our packaging that makes us environmentally friendly, it’s the materials, the manufacturing process and supporting ethical businesses – there’s no competing on price, no nasty chemicals in our fabrics and absolutely no exploitation in any factories.

The Positive Social Impact award also recognises Natural Baby Shower’s on-going support with our charity partnerships. We support a number of different charities and causes that are close to our hearts. We have charity partnerships with Stripey Stork, Women's Aid and Shooting Star Children's Hospice. We work closely with these charities to help shine a light on the amazing work they do and their mission, but also to support them in any way we can with volunteering, donations and charity campaigns.

Our store was also recognised in the award for offering a beautiful space for parents to experience a bespoke shopping experience with expert advice and demonstrating a range of products to help Mums and Dads find the perfect products for them and baby. Our store also has a space for parent and baby classes called ‘The Hub’. The Hub is a destination for baby and parent classes, events and talks aiming to inspire the minds of little (and big!) people whilst encouraging parents to learn something new, make friends and develop an even stronger bond with their baby. Natural Baby Shower currently host 10 classes a week from Postnatal Fitness to Baby Ballet along with a variety of pop-up events/talks that we offer FOC to our customers in the local community.
