Our story

childrens drawing gifts

Welcome to the joyful world of Olive & Pip!

We specialise in making playful clothing and gifts from your little ones artwork.

You don’t need me to tell you about the joy that kids artwork brings! Every parent knows that feeling when their little one presents them with a crumpled up love letter or hilarious portrait of grandad with a giant nose. But our mission is to take those moments and make something that not only looks great but makes you feel great too! We make clothing you and your kids will want to wear every day, and gifts for the proud grandparents that they will want to show everyone who comes around.

Our signature metallic print makes their gorgeous doodles and love notes really pop!

Why do we love working with your love notes? Because everyone deserves to feel LOVED. And we know that by printing these teeny little notes somewhere visible, you will get the warm fuzzy feels every time you look at them. Keepsakes don’t always need to be locked away somewhere safe, we create really special gifts that can be treasured forever but also enjoyed every day.

We know you don’t want to forget a single moment of your kids growing up.

The journey…

Hi! I am Lucy,  mum of two, and Olive & Pip is inspired by children Ella and Jake (or “Olive and Pip” when they were being baked in my tummy!). I made my first drawing gift from one of Ella’s doodles. She is a creative soul who loves to draw! There is honestly nothing I love more than seeing all of her creations, especially since she learnt to spell my name- my heart melts when she comes home from school with little love letters for me.

In fact, the kisses on my logo were taken directly from one of these notes which was also one of the first drawings I transformed into a little bag for myself (this is when I knew every parent should own one of these!). I still use this bag, and it still makes me smile every day.

These little “I love it” proud-mum moments prompted me to design beautiful, usable products that would make other parents feel the same way every day. My mission is to spread love and joy through your children's creations.

 You may have been following my journey for a little while (if so, thank you for being here!) and noticed a change in name on my website- my Little Things by Lucy personalised gifts can still be found here too!

 Established in 2016, the business might have grown from the early days of making tokens for friends but our purpose remains the same: to live with fun, joy and kindness - and cherish every minute.
