February Finds Love and Presidents' B-Days
In February, we celebrate love on Valentine’s Day and our country’s leadership on Presidents’ Day. For retailers, it’s a season for fun gifts and personal presents that show affection in all degrees, from puppy love to lifelong commitment. Make the season a reason to find new gifts for your store. Here I present one handful of finds that I love…
Big Love from belle&beanzer
The soft, 100% pima cotton lovie, with two pockets, is useful for swaddling, nursing, strolling and naptime/tummy time. Big enough for two! I’d keep this Big Love long after baby is grown.
Available in contemporary shades of blue, pink, white cloud solids and micro stars or stripes.
“I Am Abraham Lincoln” Shows Kids Why We Celebrate Him
The book shares childhood adventures of Lincoln, with interesting facts and heroic traits such as Lincoln’s practice to always speak up for what he knew was right. The non-fiction account also shows Lincoln’s courage in protecting animals, standing up to bullies, and his love of reading and learning. Meltzer shows what children may have in common with this hero, and that the traits that made him a hero are still relevant today. As a parent, I too learned some interesting facts about Lincoln (such as he lost three times before he won the election to president.). At any age it’s a good reminder to stand up for what you know is right.
I Am Amelia Earhart is also available now, and I Am Rosa Parks will be released in Summer, 2014. I personally recommend this series, suggested for ages 4 to 8 (I enjoyed reading it myself, so it’s great for grandparents too! It may even inspire you to tell the young children in your life “about the time when you…”)
Love at First Sight from Kissy Kissy
The collection has been a central part of the Kissy Kissy line since the brand launched 16 years ago. Countless babies have made their first trip home from the hospital in the grouping’s pink hearts, yellow ducks, blue moons or green frogs! Due to the popularity of Homeward Bound, Kissy Kissy eventually added complementary gingham pieces to round out the selection. Homeward Bound is available year round, making the sweet heart print perfect for Valentine’s Day or any day you want to share some love!
