Creative and Fun Nursery Gift Ideas

Posted by Anna Greene on July 13, 2018

It doesn't get much more exciting than planning what your nursery will look like for your new baby. If you’re anything like me, you’ve been working on your nursery inspo Pinterest board since your 3 month scan!... But finding something that feels in keeping with your own style can be tricky. That’s why we launched Milk and Poop.

Gone are the sickly pinks and teddy bear motifs in favour of cool contemporary colour palettes and bold designs. With a heavy Scandinavian influence and a touch of British quirkiness, we want to help you create a distinctive and playful space for your little one. Because being a new parent isn’t all cute and cuddles. It's messy, funny, tiring and everything in between. We want our designs to reflect that. We want designs that little people and parents will love in equal measure.

Nursery colours and themes

We launched with three colour coordinated collections to suit every style.

The Electric Youth collection is designed for monochrome lovers and features sassy slogans, graphic prints and pops of yellow.

Peppermint Sugar creates a calm backdrop to any nursery with cool pastels and greys, delicate geometric shapes and hand-drawn illustrations.

Monster Squiggles mixes a rich palette of reds, blues and yellows with graphic patterns and mischievous monster characters.

A lot of care and attention has been put into colour matching all of our products to help you achieve the complete look with ease. We've even partnered with Crown Paints to colour match all of our products with a special discount of 20% off Crown Paints with every order. Your unique voucher code will come with your order and is redeemable on all of their products.
