As our planet continues to populate and urbanize, our commitment to recycling and eco-friendly manufacturing has strengthened. Following this trend, many parents vow to choose organic products. When friends and family are shopping for that perfect shower gift for an eco-minded new mommy, whether it is “green” is more imperative than if it is pink or blue. Thankfully, there are more organic baby products available to consumers than ever before! The Giggle Guide® presents an array of fashionable, functional and affordable organic baby products from Becoming Baby, Happy Heinys, Wee BE Organic from Babe Ease, and baby chai by Lucky Jade.
Beyond the baby basics, the most desired shower gifts are functional products that showcase singular quality in design and style. “Cuteness” is also an essential element shoppers look for, hoping to induce plenty of jubilant “oohs!” and “ahhs!” during the gift opening occasion. When customers are in search of “the perfect gift,” steer them to baby shower must-haves from Itzy Ritzy, Wry Baby, Urban Smalls and Dara & Co. These innovative companies offer fresh, fun, exceptional products that are guaranteed to bring a downpour of fun-loving giggles and heart-warming memories to the party.

The footwear collection by Bear Feet Shoes is a superb, all-natural alternative to mainstream children’s shoes. In 1985, the company set out to create kids shoes that were soft, non-constricting, and stylish. Over 20 years later, Bear Feet Shoes is still motivated by its “bare is better” philosophy that helps kids not only look cuter, but walk better as well. The Giggle Guide® presents a footlocker full of affordable-priced new styles from Bear Feet Shoes for Spring 2011.
Everyone is busy these days. With that said, parents want their babies to be comfortable when playing at home, at a play-date, or even running errands… but parents also want their babies to be fashionable. Rock Me!, an American made infant and toddler fashion line debuting this spring, has combined those two requests and has even added the benefit of quick and easy changing.
Along with the joy and pride of welcoming a new little being into the world, expectant parents are also charged with the exciting task of designing an inviting nursery for their bundle of joy. Long departed are the days where choices for nursery décor were limited to fluffy bunnies or yellow ducks. The world of nursery décor has evolved to include a vast array of styles from modern to traditional, French country to shabby chic. In the world of nursery décor products, Martinek BéBé, The Rug Market, Kristaben, and New Arrivals, Inc. are some fantastic brands that stand out for their quality, attention to detail, and designer style.
Wanting only the best for their children, parents are always on the lookout for the finest products available to help their little ones grow up healthy and strong. Ranking high on the shopping list of must-haves are baby dental care products. Removing bacteria from a baby’s mouth is the single most important step parents can take to ensure that their baby grows healthy teeth. Fortunately, taking care of a baby’s gums and teeth doesn’t have to be difficult, time consuming, or cost a lot either. Thanks to MAM, Spiffies, Summer Infant Products, and Oh Plah!, oral hygiene can be simple and fun for both parents and baby!
