The Art Of Gift Wrapping

The Art Of Gift Wrapping

If you’re planning on giving the new mommy in your life a luxury gift, the presentation must be just as beautiful as the gift inside.

This can be especially difficult if you’re struggling to wrap plush cashmere baby gifts or a soft baby blanket set. 

Here are some essential tips to make your gift wrapping — almost — as good as the present inside.

Choose great wrapping paper

Your premium baby gifts deserve the best wrapping paper on the market. Thin wrapping paper is prone to creasing or

wrinkling in unexpected places, or even tearing. This often ruins the entire presentation of your gift. 

Thick wrapping paper with a beautiful design is the best option to present your baby blanket gift. It’s easier to control creases

during the wrapping process and won’t tear like other flimsy gift wraps. On top of that, the thick paper will feel rich and

luxurious to the touch when she opens her present. Just be sure to place your baby blanket gift on the paper before you cut —

this will give you the perfect amount of paper to cover the present. Using too much wrapping paper is a common beginner’s mistake.

When in doubt, use a box

If you’re wrapping a difficult object like a cashmere wrap for babies or a breastfeeding cover, you might want to put it

in a box before you wrap it. Loose gifts made from cashmere are more prone to tearing and puncturing the wrapping paper.

This can be a huge detriment to both the overall look of your gift and the surprise gift inside!

Avoid the potential for punctures by placing flexible or fragile items in a rigid box. Not only will this give you a clean crease

when you wrap your present, but it will also be easier to transport if you have to travel for the holidays.

If wrapping a box is still beyond your gift wrapping capabilities, then use the Internet to your advantage. Video sharing sites

like Youtube have thousands of video tutorials with easy-to-understand, step-by-step instructions.

…Or use a bag!

Bags are a wonderful gift option because you can play with different colors and patterns. They’re easy to carry and you can fill

a bag with just about anything. This makes them a great option for last-minute gifts or multiple items for twins. While twins

only occur in four out of every 1,000 live births, this is still a great option for any new mom. Try experimenting with different

paper tissue to create a fun look for the holidays.

The new mom in your life will love it when she opens her new premium baby gifts. When you have trouble with the art of gift

wrapping, try these tips to improve your presentation.

Great Gift Ideas To Keep Mom And Baby Warm This Winter

Great Gift Ideas To Keep Mom And Baby Warm This Winter

As the cold sets in, new moms and their babies might need a little extra warmth to keep them cozy all

winter long. Whether you’re looking for great baby shower gifts, the perfect holiday present, or just

want to treat the new mom to something special, one of the best ways to do that is through the soft

luxury of cashmere.

 

Here are some of the best items to give the new mom and baby pair in your life.

A cashmere baby blanket

As mom bonds with her new bundle of joy, the best way to do so is by cozying up with a cuddly

blanket to keep both of them warm. A cashmere baby blanket is the perfect gift for the sensitive skin

of a newborn.

Whether you’re looking for the perfect stretch cashmere blanket for swaddling or a blanket that will

last your baby for years to come, cashmere for babies offers the utmost comfort and longevity.

A breastfeeding wrap for mommies

A cashmere wrap for breastfeeding will give the new mother in your life the ultimate in style, comfort,

and function. First-time moms may struggle to pack a nursing cover every time they leave the house,

especially when it’s cold outside. The best breastfeeding wrap is soft, warm, and stylish for the new

mom on the go without sacrificing wear ability.

Warm cashmere baby shoes

It might seem strange to buy shoes for a newborn, but their little limbs will be most susceptible to the

cold during frigid winter months. Keep their fingers and toes warm and cozy with plush mittens and

baby cashmere shoes.

Look for options with adjustable straps to get the perfect fit every time.

A cozy gift set

Can’t make up your mind? Then you don’t have to settle for just one gift. A baby blanket set and toy

provide the perfect combination. If you want to go the extra mile, include a breastfeeding mommy

wrap for a gift that will last. You can put all of these items together in gift basket to surprise the new

mom.

There’s no better first-time mother gifts than the luxury feel of cashmere. Because some women

might be hesitant to purchase cashmere for themselves, it’s the perfect winter gift. When babies start

crying between two and three weeks old, it’s up to mom to give them the best in comfort and

warmth. Soft and warm, these cashmere options will ensure mom and baby stay cozy all winter long.

Best Gifts for First Time Moms

There are not many things more intimidating than being a first time mommy. It can seem like the only way to learn what to do is to pretend like you actually know what you’re doing for the sake of your baby and the sake of your own sense of personal balance. Fake it ’till you make it, right?

Luckily, there are some new items at 10 to 12 Baby Lounge that can make the first time mommy life a little bit easier and a whole lot cozier for the loving new mommies and babies in your life. Our timeless cashmere pieces for mommy and baby make the best gifts for first time moms, perfect gifts for baby showers or for no occasion at all! In fact, go ahead and indulge yourself in them as well. Once you give one as a gift, no doubt you will want to covet them for yourself and your own little one too. From the ultimate baby security blankets to heartwarming gift sets with unique pieces like cashmere baby booties, here are a few of our favorite best gifts for first time moms!

Swaddle Blankets

Swaddling is one of the most important things to master as a new mama. There are countless reasons to swaddle your baby, and do it correctly. It stimulates sleep continuity, which is a major goal for a new mom. When swaddled the right way, your baby will likely sleep better and longer. Because they will be all bundled up, they won’t be able to startle themselves awake with a flailing arm or the twitch of a leg. It is also a very effective soothing technique. While they may fuss a bit initially, research has shown a large reduction in crying when babies are swaddled properly. The most important reason for swaddling is that it reduces the chance of Sudden Infant Death Syndrome. When swaddled, a baby has much smaller chance of somehow covering their heads with a pillow or blankets, or rolling over onto their stomach, both of which can potentially be fatal.

10 to 12’s new ‘Stretch Me’ Blanket Set includes the perfect swaddle blanket for little ones. It is made of the highest quality cashmere, silk, and wool, creating the ideal stretchiness, warmth, and comfort that a baby should get from a swaddle blanket. The vast benefits of the Stretch Me blanket are actually in its name! The majority of swaddle blankets are restrictive and reinforce sleeping in an unusual position, which can put an infant at risk for hip dysplasia and impeded breathing. The Stretch Me blanket stays secure while allowing for natural joint mobility, meaning that baby gets all the benefits of swaddling without the potential hazards of most swaddle blankets. Not only that, but the set also comes with a cashmere plush Gavin or Kiwi toy that can accompany a little one on all sleeping endeavors. This is by far one of the best gifts for first time moms. Her baby will literally be a bundle of joy!

Security Blankets

Baby security blankets are of large importance of their own. They are the ultimate transitional objects for babies to grow their independence, meant to mimic the effects of a mother’s womb for the baby. Particularly during the “fourth trimester,” what we call months 10 to 12, a baby can start to feel confused and overwhelmed by the stimulus outside mommy’s belly, deeming baby security blankets ideal gifts for first time moms to comfort their little ones.

You may know of 10 to 12 Baby Lounge’s Gavin the Goat and Kiwi the Cat timeless cashmere baby blankets, but 10 to 12 Baby Lounge has recently introduced two more friends to the family! Meet Liam the Lion and Penelope the Poodle. These are the same beautiful, 100% machine-washable, non-toxic cashmere blankets, with exciting new friends to choose from to match each little one’s personality. These baby blankets include unique personal touches; each comes with a story booklet about the character on the blanket, hand embroidery and bright pom poms that promote sensory play, so baby can learn about their new friend as they grow up together!

Cashmere Baby Booties

New mamas are naturally protective and careful about their babies, and therefore want them to be as warm and protected as possible when going out into the big, new world. 10 to 12 Baby Lounge’s new Stepping Out Deluxe Cashmere Gift Set has everything little ones need to be cozy and comfy, and it comes in both Foggy grey and Ivory white. This too-cute-to-be-true set for newborns includes a Baby Wrap, Baby Hat, Baby Mittens and 10 to 12 Baby Lounge’s NEW gold or silver bottomed cashmere shoes. Our cashmere shoes are lined with butter-soft genuine leather with an adjustable strap, and all shoes are made in Portugal still following 10 to 12 Baby Lounge’s strict standard for eco-friendly production. All of these clothing items are a blend of the finest cashmere and cotton, ensuring the most comfort and lounge-chic style for little ones. These all-inclusive sets have everything a new baby will need for their first adventures out into the world, making them genius gifts for first time moms. Can you think of a more keepsake first pair of shoes to gift?!

And with that, we hope you feel more prepared to provide your friends and loved ones with the best gifts for first time moms. The options don’t stop here, though. 10 to 12 Baby Lounge’s new fall line is full of luxurious new products for mommies and babies alike!

Announcing Mommy Appreciation Sundays: Weekly Instagram Giveaways

Being a mom is hard work. It’s nonstop. It’s a full-time job without the salary and benefits. You can’t clock out at 5 o’clock, and forget about the work until 9 o’clock the next morning. You’re constantly on call, and you have to be ready to handle anything that’s thrown your way (including, but not limited to, dirty diapers, mashed bananas, and sippy cups). We understand. That’s part of the reason we started posting the mom blogs on our website, and created our community on Pinterest. Being a mom is a job you love, one you wouldn’t trade for anything, but let’s be honest…you often feel underappreciated and underpaid.

 

We at 10 to 12 Baby Lounge feel like moms deserve more than just one day a year to show how much we love them. I mean, what would we do without them?!? After talking about our own moms and the moms in our community that inspire us over the recent Mother’s Day holiday, we decided we needed to do more to show mom we care.

 

That’s why, starting THIS weekend, we are introducing Mommy Appreciation Sundays!  Mommy Appreciation Sundays is an 8-week Mother appreciation campaign centered around the message that “Mothers deserve more love and recognition than just one Mother’s Day.” Beyond our usual monthly mom blogs, our social media pages will be flooded with stories to inspire, thank and educate mothers. We want you to know that we appreciate you, and that we think you deserve something special! In addition to all the words of love and admiration, we will also be featuring great Instagram giveaways and unbeatable deals for mommy.

 

To say thank you for all that mothers do, 10 to 12 Baby Lounge will be doing an 8-week giveaway of some of our various mommy cashmere (as featured this month in Mom.me) and baby cashmere products. Each Sunday morning from 10am to 12pm, the first three customers who arrive to our website to claim the Instagram giveaway will be rewarded with one of our signature mommy cashmere or baby cashmere products.

 

Not one of the first three for the Instagram giveaway? Have no fear!  A special discount on all 10 to 12 mommy cashmere and baby cashmere will also be offered to the rest of our customers who make a purchase every Sunday from June 3rd until July 22nd. These are some deals for mommy that you can’t pass up! Shop for yourself, or for another special mommy in your life.

 

The first week Instagram giveaway will be one of our Baby Cashmere Wraps in multiple colors. This cozy set is made of some of the softest cashmere on the planet, for a versatile and stylish addition to any baby’s wardrobe. So, don’t forget to visit our website THIS Sunday for your chance to enter to win this incredible giveaway! And while you’re there, don’t forget to check out our mom blogs for more stories to inspire and educate. Also, check in on social media (especially Instagram) each week to find out what will be given away next!

 

The entire Mommy Appreciation Sundays event will culminate on July 22nd with a live event hosted at the new Baby Lounge @ American Rag Cie store in Hollywood which will feature the new fall 10 to 12 line of products, host mommy bloggers and influencers, and will include a raffle for a Bentley Stroller and other luxurious goodies for Mommy, like full sized products from Indermica Skincare and special deals with Volvo Cars of Santa Monica. Just another way for us to give a big THANK YOU to all our mommies out there!

The Journey of a Prenatal Specific Chiropractor

When I got pregnant with my first child, I began seeing a prenatal chiropractor. Being a child gymnast, I had always seen a chiropractor to keep me balanced and on top of my sport, but I was amazed at the different approach my prenatal specific chiropractor had. Her approach was geared exclusively toward my prenatal issues and toward making sure I had an easy, natural birth process.

 

We all know that pregnancy involves physiological and endocrinological changes in the body. Some of these changes, like a more protuding abdomen, an increased back curve, pelvic adjustments and postural adaptations, can often result in a misaligned spine or joints. This can lead to a whole variety of pains and issues that not only affect an expectant mother but can critically influence the birth process too. I didn’t realize just how many prenatal health issues could be addressed through prenatal chiropractic care.

 

I remember my prenatal chiropractor telling me that all the “normal” prenatal aches and pains, reflux, foot swelling, etc. are actually not “normal” at all and that she had solutions for all of them through gentle chiropractic adjustments, pregnancy-specific massage techniques and natural home remedies. She even treated breech presentation, helping moms avoid non-elective C-sections with an 85% success rate using a gentle technique called the Webster Technique.

 

Because of my prenatal specific chiropractor, I was able to enjoy the unfolding of pregnancy and had a natural and beautiful birth. I was so inspired by how much she helped me and how much I witnessed her helping other pregnant mom’s during one of the most important times of life, that I BECAME A PRENATAL CHIROPRACTOR myself.

 

Now, years later I have a vibrantly healthy 17 year old daughter along with a Doctor of Chiropractic degree with a Fellowship in Prenatal Chiropractic Care, and I couldn’t be happier. I’ve spent the past 15 years treating pregnant patients and their families in my busy little Wellness Center in Glendale. I’ve built a team of prenatal chiropractors, acupuncturists and massage therapists, and together we deliver the same quality of care to our patients that I was so blessed to receive when I was pregnant.

 

I love the quote from one of the founders of Chiropractic BJ Palmer, “You never know how far reaching something
you Think, Say or Do today will affect the lives of millions tomorrow.” It reminds me of how much my prenatal chiropractor changed the entire trajectory of my life, and now because of her excellence of care, passion in her craft and open hearted approach I am following in her footsteps.

 

I can only imagine that if we all look at our influence on others, especially as moms, we will see that
when we share our passions in an open hearted way and connect to others purely, we too are having a
far reaching impact. I hope this story inspires you to not only seek chiropractic care for yourselves but to
Find your Personal Passion and Share it!

 

Yours in health,

First Mother’s Day Gifts: Best Presents for New Moms

Mother’s Day is just around the corner, and for new moms this day is full of novelty and excitement. Their introduction to sleepless nights and compounding loads of laundry, mixed with the sweetness of bringing new life into the world is a drastic change in lifestyle for new mommies. Mother’s Day is the perfect time to show these admirable women extra appreciation. Whether you are stuck on finding a perfect luxurious first Mother’s Day gift to treat your friend, sister, wife or partner, here are a few unique and thoughtful ideas for first Mother’s Day presents from a first-hand mom herself.

Top First Mother’s Day Gifts

Poncho

If there’s anything a new mom needs, its a soft, warm cover when she feeds. With our 10 to 12 Mama Cashmere Ponchoshe’ll feel amazing and her baby will melt in her arms as they lounge peacefully on a cloud of luxurious, machine-washable cashmere. Our cashmere poncho can be easily slipped over the baby’s head, comes in a keepsake box to preserve all of baby’s special milestones, and functions as a soft baby blanket too, making the perfect first Mother’s Day gift.

The new momma in your life has just carried another human being inside her body for the past nine months. Not only has she gone through the pain of pregnancy, but she’s experienced weight gain, flux of hormones, stretch marks and little sleep in the process, which can be a huge confidence shaker. What she probably wants is something to help her feel beautiful again. What better first Mother’s Day gift than skincare?

Natural Oils: Beauty experts swear that oils are the best for skin hydration and renewal. Coconut oil and argan oil help to replenish the skin with nutrients and repair damage from sun, dehydration and exhaustion.

Anti-Aging Products: Finally we have been let into a little French skincare secret; start using anti-aging products before you see the signs of aging to preserve your healthy glow! The added benefit of a spa-like routine at home is a cherry on top. Ingredients like peptides, antioxidants and Retinol are some of the stars to look for when scouting the right products. Revision Skincare is one brand that is proven to be known and trusted for its quality, so you can be sure it is worth the investment. The Mom in your life will be thrilled as soon as she experiences the difference of its products. Our suggestion for an extra-special, pampering gift is Revision’s One of a Kind gift set. Included in the set is the silky-soft Intellishade Matte tinted moisturizer that will make putting on daily SPF feel like a luxury, and blends into most skin tones with anti-aging benefits.

Face Masks: Face masks are always a great Mother’s day present because not only do they replenish the skin, they provide the perfect excuse for your new mom to just take twenty minutes to sit back and relax after a long day.

Leggings

In the first year or so after giving birth, comfort is a huge priority for new moms when it comes to clothes. She’s not going to want to wear jeans around the house when she’s feeding or holding the baby — Leggings are THE go-to lounge wear. She also might be trying to shave off the last few pregnancy pounds and get back on track with her workout schedule. Leggings are one of the most practical first mother’s day gifts that you’ll be sure will be put to good use.

Personalized Jewelry

If you’re looking for something more meaningful or thoughtful, personalized jewelry is always a good idea. Getting her a custom engraved ring or necklace as a first mother’s day present is great because it’s something that will last, and something that really memorializes this big day. Etsy is a great resource for handmade personalized jewelry.

Tote Bag

Tote bags are both practical and cute and can make the best bonus Mother’s Day presents. First time moms will realize that with the new baby, they suddenly have so many things to carry around, be it bottles, handkerchiefs, or diapers. Getting her a light, roomy, machine-washable tote bag with a cute design is a perfect first mother’s day gift.

Lap Desk

New moms know that there’s nothing more convenient and comfortable than being able to journal or work while sitting in bed. Imagine being able to write a card or type an email while patting your newborn to sleep next to you! Rest assured, there’s no better Mother’s Day present than a nice, comfy lap desk.
