Looking for the perfect unique gift? Tanja Peters’ online boutique might just have what you are looking for…
What is Coochy Coo?
Coochy Coo offers handmade baby gifts, accessories and home furnishings in beautiful textiles and colours. All materials are 100 percent cotton and imported from Europe, but made and personalised in Dubai. They come in limited quantities making them a very unique present.
How did it start?
When founder Tanja Peters had her first child in 2007, she realised there was a gap in the market for unique handmade clothing and accessories for babies, and that’s when her brand for little angels was born. Fast-forward eight years later and Coochy Coo has expanded into jewellery and accessories for women and men, as well as home furnishings, wedding, anniversary and baby shower gifts.
What kinds of things do you sell?
We sell many items, from newborn gifts to back to school items, wedding gifts, and home furnishings. Our personalised newborn baby basket contains a linen pillow, soft toy, bath towel, and onesie, which can all be embroidered with baby’s name. We sell keepsake gifts for the babies and kids’ rooms include Memo frames (babies first onesie, hat, hospital ID bracelet, etc), as well as wooden toys, funky armchairs and sofa beds. Children love having their names on their belongings!
For school, we’ve got kindergarten bags, Beatrix backpacks, lunch boxes and water bottles. Bags can all be personalised. Last but not least, we’ve got home furnishings like Mr&Mrs pillows and cushions, bathrobes, linen napkins and Louis XVI chairs. Again, these items can all be personalised with name, date or initial.
What is your most popular item?
Our personalised newborn baskets are a huge hit with expats and the Emirati community alike, as it’s a great way to welcome a new baby to the world. We deliver directly to hospitals, homes, and even hotels. The baskets makes a great gift for baby showers too – personalisation can be done after baby is born.
What’s the philosophy behind Coochy Coo?
To provide contemporary trends with classic materials such as pure cotton and linen. In a fast-paced city like Dubai, Coochy Coo offers its discerning customers a welcome alternative to Dubai’s ‘big brand’ retail world — where it’s hard to find unique and trendy presents.
