The Pippa & Ike Show is an independant online shop with a fresh range of colourful and illustrated gifts, toys and homeware for kids & grown-ups.
The collection is diverse and eclectic. I love products you would like to treasure and keep forever. Items with personality, that excite and inspire. Things that are a bit quirky, funny, tell a story, have a soul and make you smile and wonder.
There are so many incredibly talented artists and illustrators whose work I admire...I love to share them with you, by selling their products and/or telling you about them on the blog or via social media.
A bit about the family
Pleased to meet you! My name is Lianne, I'm a colour, pattern and illustration loving mama of two. Just over 6 foot tall (1.84 m) and Dutch. And yes I love liquorice, apple pie, weak tea, strong beer and speaking my mind, but I don't wear clogs (unless they're Swedish).
One of my favourite words in the Dutch language is 'gezellig'... it means something like cozy, nice, fun, comfortable, homey, lovely, warm, snug, welcoming all together and is used to describe a great atmosphere. There is no English translation for it I'm afraid...
Before moving to Bristol (UK) in 2009 with my English husband Ben (art-director and co-founder of the world's coolest motorbike mag Sideburn Magazine
) I worked as a baby and kidswear designer in Amsterdam for nearly 18 years. Here in Bristol I launched The Pippa & Ike Show in 2011....Do what you love, love what you do!
The shop is named after our children, Pippa and Ike, who like entertaining us with a good show, the hilarious things they come up with and a never ending amount of energy, curiosity, loveliness, creativity and imagination.
Our family home is an eclectic, fresh, colourful reflection of who we are. Filled with things we collected, made, found in the street or saved up for. It is a mix of styles, colours, patterns and periods...we don't follow rules other than our own ;)
We love (wrapping your) gifts!
You can shop by category, brand or artist. If you are looking for a gift, please check out the ‘gift ideas’ category where you’ll find gift inspiration for Valentine or Christmas as well as for newborn babies, kids and grown-ups in different price categories.
We offer lovely free gift wrap and a hand-written gift tag, just let us know at check-out. We can send it to you, or straight to the lucky recipient. If you are a bit indecisive what to buy, why not select one of the gift vouchers?
If you still can't find what you're looking for, please do get in touch.... I might know where you can find it, or inspire you with something else I spotted on the web.
Nice to meet you...
Thanks so much for popping in, I hope my selection will inspire you and you’ll find something you really love...for yourself or as a gift to someone special.
Have a wonderful day,
