Bye Bye Blankie

sweet news

What an AMAZING idea from the Co-Founders of The Irish Fairy Door Company!!!

Bye Bye Blankee, the multi-use baby blanket, comforter and keepsake, has won three awards in this year’s Loved by Parents Awards.

The product, which provides a solution to weaning a child from their attachment to their Blankie by shrinking as the child grows, won Platinum for Best Baby Gift in the Creative category

Innovative baby blanket proved a hit in the Loved by Parents Awards 2019

It also won Gold for Best baby Keepsake and Gold for Best Baby Shower Gift. Finally, Bye Bye Blankie also received a Tried, Tested and Recommended Award.

Commenting on the accolades is brand co-founder, Aoife Lawler. “When we create something, we ask ourselves, ‘How will this help?’ We are very passionate about making products that we feel will help parents; products we would use ourselves. We call it conscientious commerce.

“Bye Bye Blankie is the only blanket on the worldwide market that can offer a solution to weaning if it is needed. If not, it is still a bright, non-fade, washable and luxurious blanket to wrap your little person it for endless snuggles.”

Leave your blanket just the way it is, its perfect in full size but if your little person is having trouble with their attachment than your blankie can be reduced in size, gradually over time, without the design looking any different or any seams coming undone!


Elie Beaumont Watches

sweet news

Elie Beaumont watches were born out of a desire to find watches bearing the hallmark of quintessential Style - watches that represent this generation’s desire for distinctive and fun creations.

Elie's background in fashion design, taking inspiration from vintage and haute couture collections helped her create a range of watches that represent this generation’s style. She felt it important to make the watches classic, thin and elegant with clean designs, uncomplicated by too many features, but still showing the attention to detail and craftsmanship of a bygone age, appealing to everyone with a sense for classic and timeless design.

Elie knew that it was important that she loved the watches personally, or she knew that she could never sell them and be proud of them; with her obsessive attention to detail, we at SweetNews believe she's succeeded...after all she and all of us just don't want to stop wearing our own and greet each new style with a smile on our faces.

We hope "your Elie" watch will put a smile on yours.

They have become a bloggers favourite on Social Media, and recommended in all the leading Fashion Magazines, making them an instantly recognised Brand and a must have accessory.

Suitable from Teenage up and now that they’ve added the jaw dropping Mr Beaumont , everyone is catered for.

Thai Buddhas

sweet news

One of our best sellers in store in our Home & Gift section is the Thai Buddha Figurines, They now seem to be the go to gift for new home, engagement, wedding, Anniversary  & Birthday.

Placing a Buddha in your home can attract calmness, wisdom and prosperity. There seems to be numerous rules but a common theme seems to be:

Place in an important room in your home, (not the bathoom or Kitchen)

At least thirty inches high(preferably eye level if possible)

Opposite the Main Front Door

If you have a student, place on their desk, he will love energising their brain

If a business owner < place on your reception desk, to bring great prosperity to your company}

This works with all types of Buddhas, a laughing Buddha will  take great pleasure  in coming into your home and smiling away all your troubles,

Whichever one you pick will bring great joy, if even just to admire, I have one in my own home, sure whats there to lose, 

Angels & Feathers

sweet news

Feathers appear when Angels are near

Finding a white Feather, to a lot of people, this is a spiritual sign from a loved one who has passed on from this world, it can bring a great sense of peace and comfort to the mourner, knowing their loved one is still with them,and watching over them

Its especially meaningful when found in an unusual location, ie in your home,

Angels place feathers to give hope and encouragement, they are showing you that are helping and guiding you, on finding a feather, one can either pick it up or simply acknowledge and thank your Angel. 

Anything that brings you comfort, hope and peace in this crazy world can only be a good positive thing.

 I also firmly believe that our spirits send Robin red Breasts to say hello.

Embrace your Angels

New In

Delighted to Introduce a new collection to SweetNews, in Handbags & Accessories

Earth Squared started some 13 years ago after founder, Alison Henderson, returned from two years’ volunteering in social projects in Guatemala. Passionate about social justice and with a head for business, Alison wanted to start a fair trade business with an emphasis very much on design and quality.

Scouring the globe for potential suppliers, Alison decided to focus on Vietnam which, at the time, was struggling to export overseas, and after some trial and error, Alison was delighted to forge a relationship with a supplier who shared Alison’s vision for distinctive, ethical products to appeal to mainstream consumers. As a result Alison was able to combine her contemporary designs with their fantastic craftsmanship
