Papucci was launched to fill a niche to provide a trusted high quality personalised baby gift service with one-of-a-kind gifts.

Being a mum of 5 wonderful (sometimes) children I have received many baby gifts over the years and it struck me that the gifts that the children treasure the most are those with their names on. I began buying personalised gifts on-line but, because I wasn’t able to touch and feel the product before I purchased, I was often disappointed with the quality of the item when it arrived. It seemed to me that to buy a unique personalised baby gift you had to compromise on quality.

We set out to change all that by offering luxury personalised baby gifts of exceptional quality from brands that parents already know and trust. We wanted to provide personalised gifts that people would be proud to give and delighted to receive. With that thought, Papucci was born!

And the name?

Papucci is named after my Italian great grandmother Francesca Papucci. Born in Florence in 1892, it is said in my family that Francesca had an eye for stylish design and a love of quality that stayed with her all her life. It seemed fitting then to name a company specialising in high quality, classic yet stylish goods after this remarkable lady.

I hope she would approve!
