Welcome to our 2022 edition of the MyBump2Baby Christmas Gift Guide!
This year, we are featuring many brilliant businesses to help you find the perfect Christmas gift for your loved ones.
‘Hi, I am Jo, owner of and photographer at JForster Photography based in Horsham, West Sussex. Specializing in Newborn to Reception years.
Not a fan of four walls, I am primarily an outdoor and on-location photographer.
Since having my two boys I have come to love their little and unique characteristics, their lack of adult like inhibitions and ability to find joy and pleasure in the smallest of things.
I want to capture these special young years for you. The outdoors is unrestrained, informal and gives a real feeling of freedom which is perfect to bring out the best in our little humans; and that is what I strive for.
If, however, you have a Newborn I will pack all my gear up and bring it to you and in the comfort of your home will capture some images of your gorgeous babe in the place they feel most relaxed. I even have a handy welcome guide to help you prepare and maybe alay any anxieties you may have.
I look forward to the opportunity of Photographing your little one.
Gift vouchers available. Mention Mybump2baby when you contact us between 1st December’22 and 31st January’23 to learn about our limited time discounts.’
Gifts Instead of Flowers
A new way to browse, get ideas and find the perfect gift for under £80 with purchases made directly with the Artist. Think of it like an online craft fair: we cherry-pick artists from all over Britain with amazing businesses and host them on our site.
Gifts Instead of Flowers takes no commission from Artists when purchases are made via the site. That means that by shopping via Gifts Instead of Flowers the people you pay keep 100% of the profit.
The idea of giving gifts, instead of flowers, came from Jan, founder of Gifts Instead of Flowers, when she was gifted bunches of beautiful flowers during an illness – a lovely gesture that was greatly appreciated. But as days went by, the flowers fade and die and she was left with just stems and a few note cards to remind her of the kind thoughts from the person who gave the flowers. So, the idea arose that it would be lovely to give a small gift that could leave a lasting memento for all kinds of occasions
As well as supporting businesses in the art industry, Gifts Instead of Flowers also supports ‘William’s Fund’, a charity set up by the Dodd family after tragically losing their son to childhood cancer at just four years old. Mother, Johanna Dodd, has raised over £1,000,000 so far and has recently pledged to raise a further £1,000,000.
Kelly the Poet
These Rhyming In Education card packs have been created to help children learn in a simple and fun way. Kelly The Poet has ADHD and struggled to retain information what at university. She came up with this rhyming method which helped her study for her degree. After becoming a mum and a full time carer to her autistic son she knew this rhyming method would help him learn too. So she decided to use her knowledge and experience to create a product that would help children in ways other books and card packs couldn’t.

Looking for the ideal gift this festive season? Why not ask a loved one for Water Babies vouchers to help with your lessons in 2023. These can be bought in the office and if you don’t want to use them towards lessons, they can also be redeemed against products from our shop and photography.
Maybe you know someone who would like to bring their little one to our classes, we have classes across Buckinghamshire and Bedfordshire, 7 days a week for 0–6 year-olds. Our nurturing and gentle classes provide the perfect environment for your child to learn water confidence and vital safety skills, which are key to developing their swimming ability.
You’ll be amazed to see that within a few sessions they’ll be moving freely under the water. As they progress through the classes, they’ll move from the early days of enjoying freedom and fun (floating, kicking and splashing) to learning to swim independently. Most of our toddlers can swim short distances by around the age of 2 years and have mastered vital skills including how to turn around, hold on and where possible, how to climb out.
