A Silly Phillie® baby gift welcomes Mario Lopez’s new baby

September 13, 2013 :: Posted by - admin :: Category - Baby First’s, Baby Gift Baskets, Baby Gift Ideas, Baby Gifts, Baby Gifts Personalized, Customized Baby Gifts, Personalized Baby Gifts, Sibling Gifts, Unique Baby Gifts

Courtney & Mario Lopez were blessed this week with their second child, a beautiful baby boy named Dominic. So what did a dear friend choose to give the Lopez’s to celebrate the arrival of their son? A super deluxe, custom made Silly Phillie® Welcome Wagon™ of course!

Silly Phillie® Personalized Baby Gift for Dominic Lopez

My staff and I always get excited when we receive a request to make a gift for a celebrity baby.  After all, we’re fans too, and making a gift for a high profile couple really gets our creative juices flowing.  I believe the reason why we are asked to create so many baby gifts for celebrities is because unlike most other companies, Silly Phillie® has the capabilities domestically to custom  make beautiful, high quality gifts that impress even the most discerning of new parents.

For the Lopez’s we took our Deluxe Welcome Wagon® baby gift and made it even more special by adding additional items for baby, including a Signature Forever Baby Book® Photo Album,  and personalizing two of the layette items with Dominic’s name. The result is a fabulous sports themed personalized baby boy gift.

All of us here at Silly Phillie ® are excited to help welcome little Dominic Lopez into the world. We wish him and his mommy and daddy,  Courtney & Mario Lopez, the best of health,happiness & high ratings too!

My best baby gift!

Alessandra, Mommy & Daddy

There was no mistaking the birthday girl at her first birthday party this weekend.  Alessandra was spotted wearing a fashionable “I’m 1 Year Old” bib by Silly Phillie®, along with no less than three outfit changes from a variety of other designers.

Allie’s parents Kristina & Jonathan hosted a fabulous Hawaiian themed Luau party outdoors at the home of Ya-Ya & G-Pa. The guest list included a who’s who of family and friends on a glorious late spring sunny day. Festivities included fun games and entertainment for the kids,  along with a fantastic steel band, tasty barbecue, and  refreshments for adults from an authentic Tiki Bar.   The featured drink of the day was an Allie Capri,  named appropriately for the birthday girl.

On a personal note, Allie’s birthday party was the perfect way to cap off a remarkable first year.  She is a sweet delightful little girl and I am truly blessed to be part of her life. I treasure every moment I spend with her,  even those times when she’s being less than cooperative.  I  look forward to travelling down the road with Alessandra as she develops into the person she is destined to become.

I guess you might say Allie is the best baby gift of all!

Introducing Pride & Joy…a new baby gift for twins!

May 23, 2013 :: Posted by - admin :: Category - Baby Blankets, Baby Gift Ideas, Baby Gifts, Birth, Unique Baby Gifts

Pride & Joy Personalized Changing Pads for Twins

According to the National Center for Health Statistics  the number of twins being born has skyrocketed, more than doubling since 1980.  Greater than 3% of all births today are producing twins. Fertility drugs and older women having babies are the primary reasons for this increase.

With significantly more twin births there’s a need for more unique baby gifts for twins. Our newest gift is called Pride & Joy Twins Baby Gift. We call it that partly because pride and joy is how parents often refer to their two new babies, and partly because it plays off the lion character design of this gift. Lions as you know live in prides.

Pride & Joy Gift for Twins consists of two adorable lion character changing pads, each embroidered with the first name and first initial of one of the twins. These highly practical changing pads are 100% made in the USA by Silly Phillie® from domestic fabrics. The changing pads can be ordered in any combination of blue & pink depending on the gender of the babies.

I personally love this baby gift and think anyone would be “prideful”  to make it their gift for twins!

Child prodigy reads Safety 1st manual at 10 months!

April 24, 2013 :: Posted by - admin :: Category - Baby First’s, Baby Gift Baskets, Baby Gifts, Baby safety, Baby Shower Gifts, Sibling Gifts
 

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…

During the course of a day we ship out baby gifts to expectant and recent new parents.

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

Baby’s 1st Year…. a year to remember!

Alessandra at 9 months

It’s been a year to remember with  Allie so far.   I’m truly blessed to be able to spend quality time with her,  including days when I take her to work with me.  Each new day brings another first or moment to treasure.  Just yesterday Richard and I took Allie to the playground and put her on a swing.  She’s nine months and a big  girl now so we’re able to swing her higher.  The higher Allie went the more she laughed with wide-eyed excitement.  The joy on her face is something we’ll never forget.

My precious time with Allie inspired the creation of yet another unique baby gift from Silly Phillie®.   It’s called  “A Year to Remember”.   This beautiful new baby gift includes 12 baby bibs,  each one featuring a different month in baby’s  first year,  and a keepsake Forever Baby Book Photo Album.   The idea is for parents to use the bibs as “props” to take a photo each month on baby’s birthday.  At the end of the year the parents will have 12 fantastic photos of their baby celebrating a birth month,  plus a fabulous album to display these and other photos from baby’s first year.  Now how’s that for a great baby gift idea!

A Year to Remember Keepsake Baby Gift

Wishing all our friends and family a  Happy Passover and Easter!

The gift of curiosity at 7-months of age

January 16, 2013 :: Posted by - admin :: Category - Baby First’s, Baby Gift Baskets, Baby Gift Ideas, Baby Photo Contest, Baby’s Development, Capturing the Memories, Unique Baby Gifts

Alessandra @ 7 months

Our little monkey Allie just celebrated another mini birthday.  At 7 months she grows more curious and animated each day.  She loves being silly,  she loves to sing in the morning,  she loves to dance all day, she loves Barney but she loves mommy time best of all.  Allie displays tremendous  curiosity for all things around her and fights sleep just so she doesn’t miss anything.  Sweet as sugar all day long,  she melts daddy’s heart when she sings out repeatedly … da, da, da, da…her first ( and only) words to date.   “Itsy, Bitsy Spider” is Allie’s favorite song,  but “No more Monkey’s Jumping on the Bed”  is growing on her as you might imagine!

Ali is 6 months old!

I can’t believe  Alessandra is already half way through her first year.  Wow, time is really flying by but I’m having so much fun with this child!  That’s Ali below celebrating her 6-month birthday this week wearing what else…a Silly Phillie® birthday bib, outfit, and headband.

6 month milestones

Alessandra is hitting all her 6-month milestones right on schedule.  She’s beginning to sit up by herself, she’s eating  solid foods and loving it, she’s growing quickly,  she communicates with laughter and making sounds (no words yet) and just earlier today I found that she is cutting her first tooth!

Update-Time for a Change™ Changing Pads

I mentioned in my last post that Ali inspired me to design a new line of animal character changing pads, called Time for a Change ™ .  The thought was that changing pads, however practical they may be,  lacked personality and could benefit from exciting new designs.  The response so far has been fantastic.  Everyone loves the way they look and is thrilled to hear that we make them in the USA.  Looks like Ali has a bright future in our  baby gift business!
