Are you in the thick of the December rush, running all over the place in search of gifts so you can cross them off your never-ending Wishlist? It’s not exactly the magic of Christmas, isit? Yet, what could be more exciting than getting ready for the holiday season and finding a gift that will touch your loved ones’ hearts? Here are a few ideas for getting back to what’s important and saving your energy for Christmas eve!
Spoil them with simplicity
Simplicity is the watchwordat Studio Romeo. It’s even what inspired our baby carrier: no ties or straps, a practical alternative to hard-to-tie slings and cumbersome baby carriers. So, for Christmas,we recommend you do the same: buy a beautiful book rather than several gadgets, give them a cashmere jumper that will last, rather than fashionable clothing that will soon be out of style...
A present with meaning
Does your sister have a green heart and green fingers? Surprise her with a plant gift, like a lovely succulent in a stylish pot, or a seed kit she can grow! Is your best friend vegan? Opt for a present that means something to her and respects her values, like our weekender changing bag:beige, vegan and leather-free, made from canvas and cotton. Was your little nephew born in 2018? Then it’s likely he won’t be able to open any presents yet, so why not buy him a bottle of this year’s vintage wine for his future wine cellar?
Give the gift of slowing down
Rather than giving your loved ones an object, you can also give them the gift of your time. A cosy girly afternoon, a family hike, a lover’s stroll somewhere you both hold dear...when we live our lives at high speed, a gift of time is truly precious! Why not offer the young parents in your group a few hours of childcare so they can spend some time together?
A homemade gift
If you have a particular talent, there’s nothing better than a homemade gift, made with love. A knitted scarf, a hand-designed poster, customised furniture or even golden baked biscuits, think outside the box and give your loved ones something you’ve made personally. Even if you’re not the artistic kind, wrapping your presents yourself can be a nice little touch.
We wish you a very Merry Christmas, with all the important things ☆
Our baby carriers are currently available in two sizes : T1 and T2. The fabric is stretchy enough to adapt as best as possible to both the wearer's and the baby's bodies.
Generally, T1 suits sizes from S to M and T2 suits larger sizes.
Important: The fabric will soften and relax during use and as the baby grows. It’s normal that the baby carrier feel a little snug during the first use.
And since each body is unique, you can try it quietly at home to see if it suits you and if not, you can send it back for a refund ;)
You may experience a feeling of tightness but the goal is ultimately that the baby is held firmly against you and does not move, just like with a classic carrier. For the newborn position, depending on the morphology of both the baby and the wearer, it can quickly become restrictive. You can therefore place them into the sitting position early by respecting their physiological position and the natural spacing of their hips. The seating position will feel less snug as the legs will be out.
Also, do not hesitate to flatten the fabric on your back to leave more on the front.
Important: The fabric will soften and relax during use and as the baby grows.
Indeed your child should not be too low, or at least the position should remain as comfortable for them as it is for you and your baby should remain within reach for kisses. If this is not the case, you can make a loop with the fabric on each shoulder. You can make a loop by twisting the side of the scarf and reversing the hems so that the fabric is shortened and the baby is slightly lifted (see video section).
You can also wash your sling (30° or Warm setting in the washing machine) so that the fabric shrinks back to the original size (the product cannot be reimbursed once washed).
