our story

Hi, I’m Kate.

Owner of Kate Inglish Designs. Mother, keeper of memories, baby hamper fanatic and accidental counsellor.

It All Started With A Baby Hamper

Baby Hampers are everything. The deep thinking behind choosing every precious item. The creativity they inspire when arranging their contents. The keepsakes and future memories they’ll become.

I love how personalised baby hampers are and I love imagining the joy mums feel as they excitedly unwrap their hamper.

It’s my desire to spark joy and to cherish memories that inspired me to create Kate Inglish Designs in 2010. My husband was in the Navy, and I started by creating baby hampers for new mums in the Navy community.

My business has since gone through many iterations and evolutions. It offers so much more than baby hampers. But I still get excited every time I create a new box.

An Entirely New Direction

Back then, few businesses were offering wooden toys and as a mum with a child who not only needed them, but loved them, I saw an opportunity.

I shifted my focus solely to wooden toys, mostly selling them at local markets. I loved those markets so much, and given few people were selling wooden toys, people would wait a month to get my toys.

I built up a huge following. So when I finally opened my Kate Inglish Designs retail store in 2015, I had customers keen to buy from me.

More Than A Store

Kate Inglish Designs now stocks hundreds of products across baby clothing, feeding, toys and more.

But my store is so much more than a beautiful place to shop for unique baby gifts. It’s a place for mums to connect. It’s a place for customers to tell stories and it’s a place for older people in our community to feel nostalgic.

It brings meaning to people. People love that they can come in and have a chat. I love seeing women go through their pregnancies, from first to second and beyond.

Grandparents love showing their brag books and love that I take time to listen, and let them talk. I’ve had women in tears, because they just needed to unload the stress of motherhood
