Parents are willing to buy some items sight unseen, but most want to touch and examine the crib where their little one will rest its head. This can present a challenge for smaller storefronts that don’t have the space required for extensive display. While some boutiques can’t put together an entire nursery in their small spaces, they can set the scene by displaying a smart selection of eye-catching pieces that are sure to make the entire set a must-have. The Giggle Guide® starts you thinking about new ways to display and use furnishings with picks from Martinek BéBé, Arte M, and tinitikes.

Family traditions serve a couple of different purposes: first, they instill a pride and awareness of a person’s heritage, and secondly, they help keep precious memories alive of dearly departed family members. Traditions can range from naming a firstborn child after a grandparent to giving a specific gift on a certain birthday. Even families that have current traditions in place can start new ones, and The Giggle Guide® has a great suggestion: a Jubilee Keepsakes First Birthday Cake Knife. This novel gift is given to new parents for their baby’s first birthday, then used on every subsequent birthday, or saved for use at the child’s wedding.
