I was on Hike those likes Ireland on facebook and came across a really cool little site. Its called coolbaby.ie and does the most adorable baby clothes. Not your frou frou skirts and hand made moccasins but great quality rompers, bibs, socks and more.
Its main focus seems to be sports references which are adorable. My OH Mic is a Dublin born “Banner Man” so he’d turn to mush looking at that stuff. For anyone not au fait with Irish sport, a banner man is a someone from County Clare. Clare has a history of carrying banners to political meetings and can even be traced back to the battle of Clontarf in 1014, Hence the Name. Now I’m a Dub born and bred so true blue would be my choice. Lucky enough they also stock Leinster Rugby themes so we can both be lept happy!
A typical Hat and babygro set cost €24.99 so perfect price point for a gift set. You can buy everything separately if you just want a hat or socks. They even have a personalised service to add names to the rompers.
Its irish without being Oirish and even the farming references are kitsch instead of cliche, and as luck would have it my friends just had a baby so I’m off to buy a gift set. Hence why I’m trawling baby sites, (don’t get your hope up folks)Now which county do I order? Leitrim for the Dad, Offaly for the Mum or Dublin for Her birthplace….
Its an Irish company so delivery should be in time for christmas too, If you’ve bought from here before please leave me your thoughts in comments!
