I had only just found out about one of my favourite stores, Mamas and Papas, offering a personal shopping experience for mums and dads that need a little guidance with their baby & nursery shopping.
I had always thought there would be a minimum spend or a hefty fee to book in for personal shopping – This is not the case at Mamas and Papas.
At the store, they offer a complimentary personal shopping appointment with no obligation to buy anything. All you need to do is sit and enjoy the personalised service!
I decided to book in for an appointment at The Dubai Mall branch for 10am.
This was the first mall outing with my new little boy so I was a little nervous but upon arrival into the store, the staff welcomed me and were so sweet (even when my little boy was crying his eyes out!)
I was shown to a private room at the back of the store where I was greeted by Marwa, our personal shopping assistant.
Marwa welcomed us and offered tea, coffee, juice & water – the attentiveness was so pleasant and comforting I immediately felt relaxed after feeling stressed about our first mall outing.
Lovely Marwa had a chat to us about what we were after in terms of style, preference and products. She showed us the current catalogue and answered our queries and questions with detail.
I’m a power shopper so very quickly I knew I wanted to go ahead and see the store. Marwa showed us to the nursery and bedding section. She put together a colour co-ordinated bedding and nursery accessory package for me that I could never have done myself!
She chose lovely linen and bedding as well as a crib mobile to match and some cute decorative cushions and a sweet money box for the shelves.
The personal shopping experience was extremely seamless and really helped me find my way. I am typically a very indecisive person when it comes to choosing between too many options!
To top the whole thing off, we were presented a beautiful (complimentary!) gift from the store – and yes, all personalised shopping purchases get a gift!
It was these intricate and extra details that really made the morning worth while.

For the next big ticket items, i’ll definitely be going back – and i’m advising all of my pregnant friends to head in aswell!
