Allie enjoying a Safety 1st manual

Leave it to Safety 1st.  to write manuals that even a 10 month old can understand.  Yes Alessandra is one smart little cookie-at least to this proud grandparent- but reading a car seat manual at 10 months admittedly is a stretch.  She needs at least another month for that!  (lol).

Nevertheless, Allie’s development curve has accelerated greatly just in the last two weeks. She’s crawling, mostly backwards at the moment, racing around in a walker, picking herself up to stand, eating practically everything, and throwing kisses to everyone she loves without prompting.  Allie enjoys going outside to feel the wind in her face, hearing the birds chirping, and laughing like crazy when being pushed on a swing in the park.   

By the way, I just changed to a Safety 1st. Air Infant Car Seat from a SnugRide infant car seat system.  It has double layered side impact protection, terrific padded support for the neck and head, and it looks sharp in my car. I have it stalled rear facing for now.  Installation was a snap once Allie read the instructions to me…just kidding!

Best Baby Gift Message

April 12, 2013 :: Posted by - admin :: Category - Baby First’s, Baby Gift Baskets, Baby Gift Ideas, Baby Gifts, Baby Shower Gifts, Personalized Baby Gifts

Yesterday I came across a gift card message that touched my heart. Among the many I see each day, this  particular gift message stood out for its warmth and creativity. It reads:

“Odene,

Kharyss is the baby you will carry inside you for nine months, in your arms for three years and in your heart til the day you die. Enjoy your child as it grows inside you and I wish you a safe delivery.

love always S.D.” (gift givers name left out for privacy)

I don’t know about you, but reading this message gives me goose bumps.  It reinforces something I always felt as a designer of baby gifts.  The gift card message attached to a baby gift is every bit as important and memorable as the gift itself.  However beautiful and unique a baby gift is, it is just a good looking product without a heartfelt message expressing your joy and good wishes for baby and the new parents. 

With that I decided to add a new feature to this blog called “The Best Baby Gift Messages”.    As a baby gift company shipping scores of gifts each day, we have the opportunity to read lots of gift messages.  My staff and I will select the very best ones and publish them here on a regular basis.  They will be presented in a “Top Ten” format,  borrowing from David Letterman’s popular nightly feature.

At a minimum,  the messages will give babygiftcreations customers ideas on what to say in their gift cards.  But My hunch is that everyone will love reading them, especially if they are as moving and interesting as the one above.

Until next time…

I am a fascinated by the creativity and warmth that people display when writing the message to accompany their baby gift. Each day we ship scores of our baby gifts
