Baby gift business booming for Woodborough mumtrepreneur


Baby gift business booming for Woodborough mumtrepreneur

A mumtrepeneur is expecting her unique baby gift business to go from strength-to-strength after teaming up with one of the country’s biggest baby brands.

Secret Stork, which is run by mum-of-one Julie Hunkin, from Woodborough, recently announced they are to go into partnership with Early Years’ Boutique – one of the UK’s biggest baby gift businesses.

It’s a great achievement for Julie, who only launched her business last year after giving birth to her son, Toby.

Secret Stork, which sends out gifts to parents throughout their child’s first year, is now expecting to gain hundreds of extra customers after their products began featuring on the hugely popular Early Years’ Boutique website and online store.

Julie, who runs the business from her home in the village, said: “This tops off an already successful first year for Secret Stork.

“The business was born not long after my first child. While at home and on maternity leave it was so exciting to receive surprise gifts in the mail from all the baby companies I’d signed up to.

“This gave me the inspiration to provide a service for new mums to receive luxury personalised gifts tailored just for them and their baby.”

She added: “The business is really gathering momentum and we even reached the finals in the ‘Best Product’ category at the national Mumpreneur UK awards last year.”

Emma Smyth, from The Early Years Boutique, told Gedling Eye she was delighted to be teaming up with Julie.

She said: “We are so excited to be working with Secret Stork, they are the next big thing to hit the baby gifts market. Watch this space”.
