independent brands for kids

Even though the world around us has stopped, your kids are still growing, experiencing firsts, and growing out of their clothes. For that, they need the right clothes, toys, and books along for that journey with them. On the other hand, some of you may not be parents; but, you may have nieces, nephews, and other kids in your lives. And maybe wondering what to gift them for their upcoming birthday, big milestone, or just because. So, we’ve compiled a list of independent brands for kids and parents for all your shopping needs during social distancing.


Our Story Paper Co.

Our Story Paper Co. creates modern keepsakes & baby books. They use recycled fibres in their keepsake albums and print with vegetable ink. With an eye for details, they carefully handcraft every book themselves. Each book contains photo-inserts between giggles and burps, alongside insightful prompts in colourful shades for those first few steps and words. Making it the perfect way to document all your baby’s precious moments. So, keep your most treasured memories safe with these handmade books and get free shipping within Canada for orders over $75 with the code STAYSAFE.
