Mumpreneur News: Stork Gifts New Shop

Stork Gifts is bursting onto the High Street, Lymington with a range of high quality clothes, gifts and toys for children aged 0-4 years. Parents and Grandparents are going to love the fresh new store packed with original items for babies and toddlers.

Mum Natasha Rushbrook is the driving force behind Stork Gifts. With 5 children ranging in age from 6 months to 9 years and her busy website,, opening a new store represents a challenge for Natasha. But being a busy working mum also means that Natasha knows what parents in Lymington want. Kids are welcome to watch a DVD or get hands on with a range of toys in their very own ‘Toddler Garden’ play area. They can play and you can check out which toys and gifts really appeal. The store also features a breastfeeding chair and baby changing unit, perfect for new mums with little ones.

Natasha says, “I launched Stork Gifts online 4 years ago when I’d had my fourth child, Dion, and he has grown up with it. Having my fifth in December 2008 has meant that I’ve been looking after a new baby while doing all the activity involved in setting up the Stork Gifts shop. I’ve needed support and help from local people to make my vision of a stunning, friendly shop a reality. The local businesses we’ve used to refit the premises have been amazing. They have all rallied round: if something has gone wrong people have been there, even after hours, to make sure the shop can open on time. The encouragement and support we have received from the public has been fantastic which shows the community spirit here in Lymington.”

The business is an important part of Natasha’s family. She says, “I love running a business which fits in with family life. There is a flat above the shop where the baby can nap or the older kids can play, and I’ll be right on hand. My oldest, Thai, is learning all about running a business, customer service and the importance of working hard. The little ones watch and learn, and love the fact that mum runs a shop packed with toys! ”


Stork Gifts stocks beautiful ranges of toys, clothes and gifts from around the world. Lymington residents can buy some of the best quality baby products and experience a new style of store based on traditional values of customer care, honesty and quality, and anyone can get the same fab range from
