Premium nursery accessories and children’s lifestyle brand Five of Us is delighted to launch a limited-edition collection in partnership with TV personality, baker extraordinaire and social media sensation Manon Lagrève. A five-piece capsule collection inspired by Manon’s own experience as a mother, the range includes handcrafted pram and pushchair footmuffs, a stroller organiser, a changing mat and a set of mini muslins, all in stylish twin-faced burgundy and blush check and floral prints with a chic olive trim.
The partnership began after Manon discovered and used Five of Us’ handmade nursery items for her baby daughter Fleur. She soon fell in love with the brand, adoring its charming designs, artisan quality and commitment to sustainability. After meeting with Five of Us Creative Director and Co-Founder Queralt Ferrer, the two embarked on designing a limited-edition collection that would combine Manon’s individual taste with the handcrafted quality and style for which Five of Us has come to be known. The collection also introduces two new designs: a set of mini muslins in twin-faced cotton and terry cloth – ideal for cleaning sticky hands and faces on the go – and a changing mat with a handy interior pocket.
The Manon Lagrève x Five of Us collection is available to purchase online at Five Of Us.

This Christmas, women’s health charity Wellbeing of Women are supporting vulnerable pregnant women. Through the Big Give Christmas Challenge they are raising money to fund vital research focused on improving outcomes for vulnerable pregnant women who have experienced trauma such as domestic abuse, childhood trauma, sexual violence or who are experiencing homelessness.
Lifestyle and environmental factors have a huge effect on the health and wellbeing of women during pregnancy, and vulnerable and disadvantaged women are particularly at risk of birth complications and the development of mental health issues after birth.
Receiving the right maternity care and support can hugely impact the health of mothers and their babies. Thousands of women and babies across the UK need support to get the best start in life.
Wellbeing of Women is funding several projects to support vulnerable and disadvantaged women, such as midwife Joanne Cull’s study into how maternity services can support the 250,000 pregnant women in the UK each year who have experienced trauma. The findings could help these women receive more tailored support, improve pregnancy outcomes and start the baby’s life on a positive trajectory.
From 29th November to 6th December all donations will be matched so your support will have twice the impact.
