Getting Nursery Ready with Petit-Fernand – Review

Getting Nursery Ready with Petit-Fernand – Review

This week has been bitter-sweet for us. We’ve been visiting the schools and nurseries in our local area, in an attempt to find the perfect environment for our girls to be educated in. It’s bitter because as a mother, I don’t think I’ll ever be fully ready to let our girls out into the big wide world. It’s sweet because I’m so excited for them to experience the next stage of their lives!

There’s so much to think about when choosing the right school. Hubs and I have exhausted every option, finally finding what we feel is the perfect place. Now it’s time to get ourselves nursery ready! There’s uniform to buy, as well as everything else they’ll need to get them through the day. So this week I’ve teamed up with Petit-Fernand, to bring you a selection of their personalised labels, lunch boxes and water bottles. Perfect for making sure our girls start their nursery days right!

I’m sure all parents of school age children know, that personalising property that will be used at school is a good idea. There’s every opportunity for items to get mixed up, lost and left behind. Having unique products without children’s names on them can save a whole lot of bother!


Unique & Personalised


The great thing about Petit-Fernand is that you can personalise their products ’til your heart’s content. You can even get the kids involved! From colours, designs, fonts and text, you can make each product completely unique. When my eldest daughter starts nursery she’ll be staying for lunch with her friends, so I thought their customised lunch boxes were a great place to start!

We had lots of fun creating different designs for each of our girls, opting for a cute woodland theme for one and a pretty unicorn theme for the other. I added their names using a funky font, in a colour that complemented each design. We then went on to design our girls an isothermal water bottle each, matching their lunch boxes in pattern and colour. There’s also the option to choose cute lunch box bags, making it the perfect set!



As well as the lunch box sets, Petit-Fernand also offer personalised stickers for objects and school supplies. These are a great idea for all of the extra bits and bobs that our girls will need to take with them! These too can be personalised with colours, images and fonts. I ordered a two sets of stickers, including an image of our girls favourite animal on each!



Quality Products & Excellent Service


On ordering our products I had a confirmation email almost immediately, which also stated that our items would be dispatched within 48 hours. They were absolutely spot on and everything arrived in super quick time! I was immediately impressed with the look of each of the items I ordered, the designs on each look amazing – our girls adore them!



The quality of each product really stands out. The lunch boxes have clips around the edge to keep them secure, as well as a built-in ice pack and compartments for different foods. The water bottles are very impressive too. They’re able to keep things cool or warm, which isn’t something you get with your everyday water bottles. The labels arrived packed in a compact booklet, ideal for keeping them neat and tidy and ready for use. They’re pretty and colourful, I’m certain our girls nursery kits will be easily recognisable!



Overall, I’m super impressed with each and every item we received from Petit-Fernand. I highly recommend their products and their customer service. As our girls go through school, we’ll definitely be back!

I’m a huge fan of spending time outdoors and so when the Summer months appear I love to spruce up our outdoor space.

These pieces are the perfect gift for she who likes to relax in her tranquil outdoor space – when the kids are in bed that is!

I particularly love the family signpost, which can be personalised to your requirements!

For Her: Decoration

As a blogger and a writer I work from a desk at home.  The trouble with sitting at a desk for long periods of time is that the space can become dull and boring.

When I came across these pieces I knew that I needed them to brighten up my workspace.  I absolutely love what I do, even more so with an inspirational area to work from!

For Her: Comfort

I absolutely adore this throw, as a Jane Austen lover it immediately caught my eye.  What better way to relax and unwind than wrapped in a classic!

This super cute pillow would bring a touch of artistic flare to any living space too!
