A pregnancy announcement or the arrival of a new baby is something to be cherished and celebrated. Many mums receive plenty of gifts for her baby but never really anything for herself. At Arlou & Rose, we believe that mums should be celebrated in pregnancy and in birth too, after all, she’s the one bringing a new life into the world.

Based in Singapore, Arlou & Rose curates gifts specially for expectant mums, new mums and babies. Whether you want a box to pamper mum, comfort her post delivery, aid with breastfeeding, a baby shower present or to welcome a new baby, Arlou & Rose has just the box for you.
