Here you can find our Christmas gift guide with wonderful Oscha items chosen by our team members.
"I just think Starry Night Auric Baby Wrap would make the best gift for parents of a newborn. It is sooo soft and snuggly and it feels luxurious - new parents could really do with being pampered! It’s monochrome too, so easy for anyone to wear and to match with any outfit.".
Oscha co-founder, Zoe, oversees all the departments within Oscha, she takes a key part in designing new products and her favourite part of Oscha is seeing the new fabrics arrive!
Ecommerce Marketing Manager
"The Bairn carrier would make a great gift as it’s so quick and easy to use, it would be wonderful for a new parent as it allows little ones to be held close - I’d choose the Starry Night Nebula colourway as I just love the Starry Night pattern and the blue tone goes with everything. This carrier looks stylish and would be enjoyed by mum and dad!".
You might know Hannah from our Facebook Live videos - she loves introducing our customers to new products and educating them on the products' features.

Baby Carrying Consultant and Acting Customer Care Manager
"Since my little ones are not so little anymore, I’ve adored short wraps and shawls, and often wear size 2 wraps as huge scarfs to keep me warm, knowing that if they need carrying I can do that too! I love the versatility of using the rings to make a no sew ring sling, or a really pretty scarf. I think it would be an amazing gift for a parent of a toddler. I’d choose Rei River because the contrast in colours is stunning, and I love combed cotton - but also because I adore all blues!".
If you have been in touch with our Customer Care, you have probably spoken to Jess. She is a certified Baby Carrying Consultant and our Acting Customer Care Manager while Marta is on maternity leave.
"Okinami Haar will make a wonderful Christmas present as it's the perfect cold weather sling! I love the neutral colourway of this sling as it means that it'll be really easy to style with any outfit. Did you know that Okinami has remained our top 5 most popular pattern for years? All the more reason to gift someone a cosy Okinami wrap."
Have you ever taken part in our Secret Stash events in Clan Oscha? Every week Adel carefully plans the next Secret Stash event so that it can be as fun as possible. She is also responsible for listing new products and keeping an eye on the website.
"I just love the deep red tones of the Sekai Claret scarf at this time of year and the snuggly soft wool is perfect for cosying into. I think this makes the perfect Christmas gift as it can be worn however you want – draped over the body as a shawl, fastened tightly as a scarf or loosely wrapped around your shoulders and neck. And this scarf is also made from recycled plastic bottles – making me love it even more!".

Woven Textile Designer
"I’m a big fan of accessorising with some bright colours when our northern hemisphere days get shorter and darker, and these jewel tones combined with the burnt orange weft are ideal for some cosy brightness that will last all year round! Our lovely soft Superwash Wool means this fabric would also make a great shawl to give as a non-babywearing gift".
Towera is one of our Woven Textile Designers and her main responsibilities include designing and creating beautiful fabrics. Towera is passionate about choosing the best yarns for babywearing, after all she has a little one of her own whom she loves wrapping in Oscha slings.
Woven Textile Designer
"I think this shawl would make the most perfect Christmas gift this winter. With many of us spending a lot more time outdoors this year, I feel it would be lovely to gift a loved one something that will help them stay that little bit warmer when out and about. The deep midnight blue goes with almost anything and this shawl will look just as amazing dressed up as it does dressed down."
As one of our Woven Textile Designers, Carmen's main role is using her textile knowledge to help create and design our beautiful fabric.
