“Time for A Change”!

December 12, 2012 :: Posted by - admin :: Category - Baby Blankets, Baby Gifts, Baby Gifts Personalized, Baby safety, Baby Shower Gifts, Layette Needs, Unique Baby Gifts

I fondly remember spending lots of time  with my babies at the changing table. Did you know that a baby requires up to ten changes a day during the first several months!  Now with my granddaughter Alessandra I’m spending more time and enjoying it even more than I remembered.  Allie loves it too…smiling and playing the entire time.

Time for a Change Changing Pads

Alessandra's Owl Character Changing Pad

This inspired me…why should such a precious moment for baby and mom (grandma & even dad) be spent on a bland changing pad.  Let’s face it, changing pads are practical but borrring!  Not any longer.  I call our new line of changing pads Time for a Change.  The name of course is a clever play on words, which Silly Phillie® is noted for. But it also captures the fact that for the first time a changing pad is exciting and fun, too!

Time for a Change Personalized Changing Pads

Our animal character changing pads are available in four fantastic designs- Owl, Lion, Puppy & Monkey-for both girls and boys.  Any one of these makes a perfect and thoughtful baby gift,  especially personalized with baby’s name.  And like many of our products,  Time for a Change™ Changing Pads  are proudly made in the USA.

I hope you are as excited over these as Alessandra seems to be!

Introducing The Baby Shower Clothesline baby gift

June 24, 2010 :: Posted by - Silly Phillie :: Category - Baby Gifts, Baby Shower, Layette Needs

Want to wow them at your next baby shower or surprise the new parents with a unique baby gift? Then check out the new Baby Shower Clothesline gifts at The inspiration for this  exciting new product came from seeing home made clothesline gifts given at baby showers (bridal showers, too). Without exception these made a big impression on everyone.

My goal in designing a product for retail was to capture the home made qualities of a clothesline baby gift while making it easy to give as a gift or hang at a baby shower.  We accomplished all of this by attaching a beautiful, coordinated ensemble of layette items to sturdy ribbon via clothes pins and packaging the entire assembled clothesline in a gift box.

The Baby Shower Clothesline is available in a baby girl… baby boy… ,  and neutral…

And if you are planning a twins baby shower, what could be better than matching Baby Shower Clothesline gifts? I hope you love these  unique baby gifts as much as I do!

The 10 best baby gifts to welcome the new arrival

May 20, 2010 :: Posted by - admin :: Category - Baby Gifts, Baby Names, Baby Shower, Layette Needs

A baby shower show stopper!

After designing scores of best selling baby gifts over the last 25 years, I have a unique perspective on what makes a great baby gift. Here in our very first baby babble blog post I’ll  share my top ten baby gift ideas:

  1. Must have layette items. As a mother of two, I personally appreciated gifts that included quality, 100% cotton layette items. Our Moses Basket Deluxe is a perfect example of a wonderful layette gift combined with a comfy basket that provides a safe place for the newborn. (
  2. Personalized baby gifts. I absolutely love to personalize gifts because adding the baby’s name makes the gift so special. I find that parents really get excited seeing their baby’s name on a gift…it’s like  icing on the cake!   A favorite gift of mine is any one of our personalized Rocking Horse Gifts (
  3. A show stopper shower gift. Nothing is more exciting than walking into a baby shower with a gift that everyone flips over, especially the mom-to-be.  If you want to “wow” them at your next shower, consider our Baby Shower Deluxe (
  4. A gift that grows with baby. Babies grow quickly so a gift that includes a variety of sizes is  especially thoughtful.  Baby’s First Year gift set, which includes a layette item for each of the first 12 months, is one gift that is both unique and practical.
  5. A baby blanket. Every baby has a favorite blanket so gifting a baby blanket is an excellent choice.  My blanket of choice is one of our adorable, soft and cuddly Blankie Buddies

    My favorite Baby Blankets


  6. A gift for the baby on the go. New parents today need the right stuff  to help transport baby as part of their active lifestyles.  Strollers, car seats, baby carriers, and even joggers make wonderful baby gifts.  Make sure you choose products with the most up to date safety features and ones that have the highest ratings from independent sources.
  7. Keepsake toys. Nothing is remembered more fondly than a favorite toy. Rocking horses, plush animals and wagons all are great gift ideas. Combine essential layette items with one of these and you have a wonderful baby gift like our Deluxe Welcome Wagons (
  8. Something to capture baby’s precious moments. In the blink of an eye a baby becomes a toddler and those precious “firsts” become a memory.  That’s why I like gifts that help new parents capture those memories like a video camera (my personal favorite is the Flip), digital  cameras, photo albums, and scrapbooks.  In fact, I designed a whole group of adorable gifts around our exclusive Forever Baby Book
  9. Something from mom’s gift registry. Selecting your gift from the parents baby gift registry is always a prudent choice. There are many fine baby gift registries today, including ours
  10. Gift certificates. A gift certificate is also a good alternative. Parents appreciate them because they get to choose exactly what they need. I always suggest adding something small like a cute plush animal to make the gift a little more personal. Our baby bucks gift certificates are available in any denomination and they never expire.
