Say hello! Willow & Wolfe

Say hello!  Willow & Wolfe

I AM IN AWE OF THE MANY INCREDIBLE MUMS OUT THERE, DOING A FAB JOB OF RUNNING THEIR OWN SUCCESSFUL BUSINESSES WHILST SIMULTANEOUSLY HOLDING DOWN THE FORT AT HOME. I’M FORTUNATE ENOUGH TO HAVE ‘MET’ MANY OF THESE LADIES ONLINE AND CAN’T WAIT TO INTRODUCE YOU TO SOME NEW FACES AND THEIR AWESOME ENTREPRENEURIAL ENDEAVOURS.  IF YOU WOULD LIKE TO GET INVOLVED AND HAVE YOUR BUSINESS FEATURED, PLEASE SAY HELLO!  [email protected]


Some brands take luxe to a whole new level but in a quiet, understated way that leaves you wanting ALL the things.  Willow & Wolfe is name to remember, offering a carefully curated gift basket service that combines the innate pleasure of gifting with lustworthy goods and presentation that is second-to-none.  With some of my favorite brands on offer, think The Aromatherapy Co, Aden & Anais, Man O’ War wines, Schott Zwiesel glassware, Veuve Clicquot and Wellington Chocolate Factory, the selection is a veritable tour de force of the very best and most indulgent items to appeal to every taste and occasion.

Understanding that not every recipient has similar requirements, the Willow & Wolfe website also provides a very easy to navigate bespoke service, allowing you to carefully select each item, ensuring your gift is perfectly matched to the lucky recipient.

Before her 21 month old son Hunter was born, Willow & Wolfe owner Anna was a commercial litigator, working previously in both London and Auckland.  The desire to move on from the legal world took precedence after she and husband Brendan welcomed Hunter into the world, and Anna’s goal of running her own business came to fruition with the inception of Willow & Wolfe.  

Anna in her own words;
  1.  How do you make family life and managing your business work?

I try my best to stick to (rough) set periods of time for work and non-work life. Otherwise, with working from home, it can get tempting for everything to merge into one and to not get out and do fun things with my little boy, Hunter.

My Father-in-law is great at coming over to take Hunter for an outing during the week as well so that I can set up work meetings etc in that time.

  1.  When you’ve stepped into the SAHM role, it can be hard to shift gears and have your business goals recognised as worthy, viable and in tandem with the special work we do raising the babes. You’ve got to put what you want out there and dream big right?

Yeah definitely. Our friends and family have all been really supportive and have taken my Willow & Wolfe vision and work seriously. I think once people see how many hours, and how much love you put into your own business they really get behind you and do everything they can to encourage you.

  1.  If someone was gifting YOU a Willow & Wolfe basket, which one would you choose? – I know which one I’m coveting!

Oooh, that’s tough. My husband refers to me as the ultimate consumer as I LOVE cool brands, good food, and sifting around markets etc. Choosing the products stocked by Willow & Wolfe is such fun and always feels a bit like I am shopping for myself. At the moment I would probably go for “Put Your Feet Up” for a bit of  winter pampering.

  1.  At the end of a tough day how do you regroup?

Sit down for dinner with my husband and catch up on each other’s day. We are currently addicted to “Orange is the New Black” and we love to sneak in an episode of that where we can to switch off.

  1.  What’s ahead for Willow & Wolfe?

We are blown away with how W&W is going but with being a new business the focus is definitely on continuing to grow our repeat customer base. It is exciting to see where things will head in the next 12 months.

Willow & Wolfe have such a special prize for one reader this week, head over to our Facebook page and comment on this week’s Say hello! post before Sunday 28th June at 10pm for the chance to win the gorgeous Put Your feet Up hamper featured in this post.
