Having left a project management City career to start a family, I found it increasingly challenging to find something a little bit different every time I had to buy a birthday present for my daughter’s school friends. I was tired of browsing the high street and wanted to find something special and unique to give. Following conversations with several of my parent friends, it seemed I was not alone. After the arrival of my son, Oscar, it also became apparent that original and unusual gifts for boys were even harder to find than those for girls and so ‘Oscar & B’ was born.
For those of you interested, the ‘B’ in our name is derived from my young son’s inability to say his sister’s name and thus his abbreviation of Isabella to ‘B’ for Bella.
Oscar & B’s offices are based in leafy Winchmore Hill in North London. We have recently appeared at a number of the local schools and community fairs so that a face can be attached to our brand. Attending these events helps us to keep in touch with our local community and ensure our products remain relevant and unique.
At the moment, our team is small but we feel this gives us an edge in being able to provide you with a personal service. You will always be able to reach a person rather than an automated email and we are always here to help. You can also follow us on Instagram @Oscarandbgifts for further ideas.
We are so proud of Oscar & B and hope you enjoy finding the perfect gift that you, your child or their friends will cherish. Every item offered by Oscar & B has been carefully handpicked because it is wonderful to play with, beautiful to display in a child’s surroundings or because we fell in love with it. Whether you prefer bright, bold colours, soft, muted tones or glittery metallics, we hope we have a special gift or toy that you love.
To everyone that has supported Oscar & B so far – thank you so much! We would not have been able to set up this business without you.
