For Marie-Chantal of Greece, impeccable style is a must at any age. For more than 20 years, the London-born, New York–based entrepreneur’s eponymous boutique has been a beloved destination for luxury apparel, accessories and gifts for children and babies. (And haute moms, too!) This month, Marie-Chantal is bringing her playfully chic eye to the world of interiors with a brand-new collection of textiles, trims and wallpapers for Schumacher.

Pillows in Bear High Performance Print and Rabbit High Performance Print; walls and curtains in Bloomwind Performance Linen, all by Marie-Chantal for Schumacher, fschumacher.com.

To celebrate the collaboration’s release, we’ve asked Marie-Chantal to play favorites by curating her own list of personal must-haves and favorite gifts for little ones. From an indulgent facial serum and Liberty-print toiletry kit to the journal she uses to manage her busy life as a businesswoman and mother, these are the products she reaches for again and again.
