Butterscotch Blankees: We’re huge fans of personalized gifts for baby’s first gifts – especially when they’re gorgeous blankies which they can keep for life. As always, we love to talk about investment when it comes to baby gifts, and Butterscotch Blankees are a must-have investment gift for your little one. Butterscotch Blankees are known for their gorgeous monogrammed blankets – which come in a huge variety of styles (seriously, there’s over 65 designs to browse through!). You’re sure to find the perfect blankie for the special baby in your life. They add such pizzaz to any nursery or living area. We think they’re also perfect backgrounds for monthly photos. When you go to the Butterscotch Blankees website, you chose a design first; then, you pick whether you want acrylic or cashmere (yes, please!), size of the blanket (3 to choose from), base color, accent color…and then customize your monogram – even down to the color and font! Have fun while shopping for baby’s first gift with Butterscotch Blankees – the blankie which will last a lifetime with your little one. Plus, they come wrapped up like a sweet butterscotch candy – can’t much cuter than that!
Whisbear: We are all about giving baby’s first gifts that are both functional and adorable – enter, Whisbear! Originally created in the UK by two mothers, the multi-award winning Whisbear, The Humming Bear, is an innovative product for babies. Knowing that many babies are soothed by the soothing whooshing sounds of the womb, Whisbear aims to help newborns have a smooth transition from prenatal to postnatal life. Whisbear emits Pink Noise; while white noise is often used for sleeping aids, Pink Noise is scientifically proven to most accurately represent the sounds familiar from a mother’s womb and have links to better night sleep for newborns. Pink Nose is less high-frequency noise as well as stimulating the pleasure sensors in the brain. Unlike other sleep devices, Whisbear plays for 40 minutes. After in gently turns off, it stays on standby and is re-activated once the baby starts to cry, pacifying the baby back to sleep. Whisbear is the first sleep aid created featuring the CRYsensor – this is an intelligent device which automatically actives calming white noise when your baby starts crying! Whisbear is so much more than a sleep aid, however. It is also an adorable sensory toy and playtime companion. For newborns, it is a great tummy time companion, and as babies grow, it becomes a sweet animal companion which promotes both fine motor and sensory development skills. If you’re looking for a useful and adorable gift for baby, the Whisbear is a perfect choice – as it is not just a gift for baby, but for the whole household!
Little Giraffe’s Little L Blanky: It’s no secret that we’re fans of Little Giraffe (Little Giraffe plush toys are a toddler diaper bag must have) and we think that Little Giraffe’s super soft Blanky Lovies are the ultimate baby’s first gifts. Downsize your diaper bag and maximize smiling baby time with Little Giraffe’s 2-in-1 travel pal and security blanky.
