Because of the unique ways rings can be customized now they make ideal baby presents for the new little bundle of joy in your life. Baby rings have been a traditional gift, usually they are a simple gold band that the baby will wear only on special occasions. Then as they grow the ring can be worn on a chain when it no longer fits. The tiny baby rings becomes a charm. As a spin on baby rings many jewelers are now customizing them. The world of jewelry customization has really opened up and the methods used have improved a great deal.
Custom designed rings are limited only by the imagination. Fingerprints are a new trend used for customization, the fingerprint is taken and “imprinted” either on the inside of the ring or as the design for the outside. Birth stones can be added to bring color and signify the child, siblings, or parents. A special verse from the bible or a meaningful quote are also nice as a remembrance. The special child who is presented with a baby ring can have it all their life and pass it on to their own child.
Ok, since my last post with the Johnny’s Socks, I have found more socks that I just had to share. When I had my kids I was often gifted shoes that served as no purpose, other than a waste of money. I loved a good pair of fun socks however, socks are a useful gift that is good all year around. I found some fun baby girl and boy socks that are Baby Shower worthy.
Check out this great selection of boys and girls socks that I found. Sock choices are Baby Tube Socks, Tillys Sandal Socks, Baby Boy Oxford Socks, Skater Jenny Infant Socks, Infant Shoe Sock for Boys and Girls, Mary Jane Infant Socks, Infant Cowboy Socks, and the adorable Jitterbug Jenny Socks. Each pair is unique, I bought the Infant Cowboy socks for my god son who is from a farming family. His mom loves them and they go perfectly with his John Deere Outfit and baby cowboy hat.
I found a couple of fun uncommon baby gifts that are sure to be a hit. Check out these baby fortune cookie booties, they are absolutely adorable. Now that your new bundle of joy is here, take a look inside this fortune cookie, the fortunes read “From small beginnings come great things” on one bootie and “An amazing adventure awaits you” on the other. If you are headed to a baby shower soon, these would make a great gift!
Lets face it dressing up babies is fun, but not always do they get dressed in things that are practical. Take shoes for instance, there is no need for them, they can’t walk, and they make their feet sweaty and hot. I love the idea of these Johnny’s Infant Socks. They have the look of tennis shoes, without the bulk! I just bought these a couple weeks ago for a baby shower that I have to go to next week. I am sure that they will be a big hit!
I would like to think that I spend a lot of time at home, however there are several times I can look back and remember we were on the go a lot. I have hand picked some items that are convenient, for eating out, shopping, snacking and more. The first one is the Toddler No Spill Snack Cup, we all know how hungry toddlers can be. Usually when they want something they want it now, on their time. This genius cup won’t spill, it is super easy for kids use and hold. The top is soft, always-gentle, and easy to reach-in lid, makes it easy for those little fingers to use.
My next on the go item is The Sit Seat Baby Travel Harness. With this sit folded up in its convenient carrying case, you can stick it in the trunk of your car, glove compartment, or even in your diaper bag or purse. There were many occasions that I got to a restaurant with my child and there were no high chairs left or even available. This Sit Seat Baby Travel Harness works great on chairs, and has a dual purpose as well, attaching your child to you while flying in an airplane. This is a great gift for those busy traveling parents!
I am constantly on the go, running kids to and from school, dance, and taekwondo classes. I try to stay organized even when I am on the run with a Munchkin Backseat Organizer, that way I can keep snacks, drinks and books off the ground. This organizer keeps all those things accessible and up off the floor of the car, plus when your child is old enough he or she can reach forward and get things all by themselves.
We have a muchkin backseat organizer on the backs of both seats, driver side and passenger, as well as one on the back of our captains chairs for my daughter who sits in the back. I try to refill them weekly, since we do an after school snacks two days a week in the car when we are headed to classes. The pockets are a nice size and will hold just about anything that will fit in there.
