Bump Smitten's 2010 Gift Guide for the Baby

Friday, December 17, 2010

Now that the expecting Mom-to-be has everything she would ever need and you have some great inspiration for gift wrapping, let's focus on the little bundle of joy. These toys and clothing/accessories would be perfect christmas, baby shower or "it was just so cute - I had to buy it" gifts. They are just a few of my favorite brands, such as Manhattan Toy, Melissa & Doug (which you can usually find at TJ Maxx for much cheaper, Ikea, Petit Bateau and Pediped. Enjoy!

1. As seen in our Baby Giraffe Baby Shower -- Sophie the Giraffe natural rubber teether baby toy. Growing Tree Toys $22 / 2. Whoozit Lights & Sounds Spiral plays “Twinkle, Twinkle Little Star” and features colorful blinking lights and engaging activities. Provided hours of entertainment for both of my kids. Manhattan Toy $28 / 3. Explore the animal kingdom with these exciting wooden nesting blocks. From a tiny sea horse to a great big elephant, discover charming animals from four animal habitats.

So somebody gave Sophie the Giraffe tor our 4-month old baby girl. I saw her playing with it and thought it was a dog toy (I mean, it's rubber and it squeaks, too).

Come to find out, Sophie's like SO HOT RIGHT NOW. I mean, it's not just a squeak toy, it's a $22 squeak toy. And it's French!! Who knew?

My son has that Mozart Musical Cube - got it last year for his first Christmas and I swear he's played with it every day since. We will dance to those songs at his wedding. ;)
