“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!

Alessandra reaches another milestone

November 16, 2012 :: Posted by - admin :: Category - Baby First’s, Baby Gift Baskets, Baby Gift Ideas, Baby Gifts, Baby Gifts Personalized, Baby’s Development, Unique Baby Gifts

I'm 5 Months already!

Babies grow so, so fast.  It seems every time you turn around during that magical first year another milestone is reached, another development stage kicks in.  That’s why it’s so important for new parents to make a record of each.  For our beautiful and delicious  Alessandra,  her parents  have chosen to take a unique photo each month on her birthday.  What a wonderful way to capture  how she looked from one month to another and to preserve the changes that a single month brings in the life of their baby.  These are memories easily forgotten unless you capture them in a photo.   That’s our “Ali-girl” celebrating the fifth month of her birth wearing what else…a Silly Phillie®  bib!

Excellent  baby gift ideas are ones that make it easy for parents to capture and preserve their baby’s milestones. Keepsake gifts like our Forever Baby Book Photo Albums,  Hand & Foot Print Kits, and Growth Charts are always great choices when deciding on what to give new parents.  I am delighted to report that a new and exciting keepsake baby gift inspired by my granddaughter Alessandra  will be introduced in the coming weeks on www.babygiftcreations.com.   Stay tuned.

Kristina’s Baby Shower Centerpieces

April 05, 2012 :: Posted by - admin :: Category - Baby First’s, Baby Gift Baskets, Baby Gift Ideas, Baby Gifts, Baby Shower, Baby Shower Centerpiece, Baby Shower Gifts, Unique Baby Gifts

Kristina’s baby shower centerpieces are  done!  Even though the baby shower is not for another couple of weeks,  I wanted to make sure they were designed, assembled,  packed and ready to go.  They came out looking absolutely adorable, even if I must say so myself!

The design theme for the shower is  “pink & blue” because we don’t know what Kristina is having.   I choose to use white rocking chairs, plush bears, yellow flowers, and chocolate covered sunflower seeds (yummy!).  Boy,  it helps to have a baby gift business at your disposal when making baby shower centerpieces.

The main baby shower centerpiece  needed to be extra special,  partly because it’s the first thing guests will see as they enter the room,   and partly because this will be Kristina’s  keepsake.   For this one I used a larger child sized Rocking Chair and large plush bear with “Kristina’s Baby Shower” embroidered on the bear’s t-shirt.

Kristina's Baby Shower Centerpiece

Each  guest table will be decorated with a  similar but smaller looking  baby shower centerpiece.  As you can see from the photo below,  I  embroidered the word “baby” on the bear’s t-shirt instead of “Kristina’s Baby Shower”.  Since these cuties will be given away as  prizes to winners of planned baby shower games  I thought the generic “baby” worked best all things considered.

Kristina's Baby Shower Gifts

I had so much fun designing Kristina’s baby shower centerpieces and I hope she likes them as much as I do.  I also would love to know what you think about them.  Remember, babygiftcreations.com can help design your baby shower centerpieces, too!  Just give us a call and we’ll be happy to work with you on planning a fabulous looking baby shower.   Our toll free number is 877.347.5128.

Readers of this blog already know that my lovely daughter-in-law Kristina is expecting in June.  But you may not know  that I’ve been asked to plan the baby shower.  Wow, what an awesome responsibly, even for one who designs baby gifts for a living!  Nothing like a little pressure to get my creative juices flowing,  so from that burst of energy several exciting new products have been born,  so to speak.  Today I’d like to share our new Stork Delivers Baby Diaper Cake.  This exciting new product basically combines two iconic baby shower themes,  a stork and a baby diaper cake,  into one sensational baby shower gift or baby shower centerpiece.  The gender neutral version is shown below,  but be assured that  Stork Delivers Diaper Cake is also available in boy and girl versions.  Want to wow them at the baby shower or need an appropriate baby gift,  check out  Stork Delivers Baby Diaper Cakes at www.babygiftcreations.com.

Photo Contest Winner-Feb. "12

March has arrived (bye, bye winter), so it’s time for me to announce the results of  February’s  Babies R Gifts™ Photo Contest.   João Pedro, a delightfully expressive baby boy, won with a total of 221 votes,  beating all other contestants by a fairly large margin.

And who could argue with this outcome?  As you can see from his photo,  João Pedro is overflowing with personality and charm.  The submitted tweet about João Pedro is:  “his expression makes everyone laugh”, and that seems to be an appropriate description for this bundle of joy.

As the winner with more than 150 votes,  João Pedro will be receiving a valuable personalized baby gift from us free of cost, consisting of a gorgeous wood rocking chair personalized with his name,   baby blanket,  plush bear,  and other layette accessories.  This  keepsake baby gift  will be treasured for years to come.

Kristina's sonogram at 5 months

Several months ago my husband and I received the best gift ever …after our two beautiful sons of course.  It was this little box with a ribbon on top.   Jonathan & Kristina said that it was just a little something. Well, that  “JUST A LITTLE SOMETHING”  turned out to be a sonogram photo showing the beginnings of our first grandchild!!

Kristina looking good!

Here’s a photo of Kristina at five months.  She’s doing great, looking fabulous, and getting bigger. We don’t know what we’re having yet because we all love surprises. More exciting news to come….

February 02, 2012 :: Posted by - admin :: Category - Baby Photo Contest

With much delight I am pleased to announce that Riley Brooke has won the first ever Babies R Gifts™ Photo Contest . This adorable and precocious baby girl received a total of 285 votes during the month of  January 2012. Riley’s mother tweeted about Riley: “As the first baby on both sides of the family, Riley Brooke is one spoiled baby. Known as the beef chief (self explanatory), she brings nothing but fun, laughter, and chaos to our lives!”

A photo of Riley Brooke and the Personalized Rocking Chair prize she won is below.

Just a reminder that February’s Babies R Gifts™ Photo Contest just began.  This would be a great time for you to spread the word about this exciting photo contest to everyone you know with a new baby. Who knows, maybe someone close to you will win a personalized rocking chair baby gift and I’ll be writing about them next month!
