Celebrating Baby’s First V-Day? Consider These Thoughtful and Memorable Gifts/Activities

Celebrating Baby’s First V-Day? Consider These Thoughtful and Memorable Gifts/Activities

Postpartum depression — feelings of worry, sadness, and depression after childbirth — occurs in almost 15% of births. That being said, helping out a new mother by planning an adorable and thoughtful event for baby’s first Valentine’s Day can make for some truly unforgettable memories. With a few premium baby gifts and some good friends, you can create the perfect event for baby’s first Valentine’s Day. Here are just a few gifts and activities to consider for a baby’s first Valentine’s Day celebration.

Gift Idea: Cashmere Baby Blanket

Some of the best baby gifts are those that will last for years, and a cashmere baby blanket is at the top of the list for must-have premium baby gifts. A baby cashmere set will help the baby get to sleep and stay comfortable throughout the night, allowing the mother to do the same. Plus, baby blanket sets are available in a huge array of colors and patterns, so grab one today for the perfect V-day gift.

Activity Idea: Sending Cards

Sending Valentine’s Day cards from your baby is just one way to show friends and family members that you’re thinking of them. Pull this off by gifting the supplies to the mother and helping her to make beautiful and memorable cards. Stamping the baby’s handprint or footprint is always a classic idea, but it’s also ideal to include a photograph, if possible.

“If you haven’t sent a Valentine’s Day note since you were in grade school, here’s your chance to go old-school and surprise your friends and family with an old-fashioned letter of love. Since they’re likely baby’s (and your!) biggest fan, nothing will make them smile more than getting a heart-shaped note from your little love,” writes Lindsay Tigar on FitPregnancy.

Activity And Gift: Smash Cake

That’s right — it may sound odd, but it’s a growing trend among new mothers to celebrate any number of special occasions with their newborn. A smash cake, as its name implies, is a cake that’s given to the baby for them to ‘smash’ while they eat it. For V-Day, a heart-shaped cake is best. Make sure to remember the camera!

Ultimately, it’s easy to have a memorable ‘baby’s first Valentine’s Day’ celebration with these adorable ideas. For more information about baby gifts, contact 10 to 12 Baby Lounge.

How To Curate That Special Gift For First Time Moms

How To Curate That Special Gift For First Time Moms

Finding the perfect gift for first time moms may be easier than you think. If you have a first time mom in your life, let her personality do the talking. Here how you can curate that special gift to make the new mom in your life feel safe, appreciated, and loved.

For the practical new mother

Did you know that 35% of American women who have babies are over the age of 30? This means that the new mommy in your life will want first time mother gifts that are effective and built to last, such as breastfeeding wraps to use on the run. When you’re struggling to curate that special gift, give the practical new mother something that she can use for a long time.

Though cashmere has a reputation for being hard to manage, it’s actually one of the most durable and versatile fabrics on the market. Your baby’s soft skin won’t be irritated by the fabric and cleanup is a breeze as long as you dry the cashmere product on a towel. This makes it one of the best gifts for new parents who want a gift that grows with their child. When you’re looking at baby blankets or other cashmere baby gifts, you can rest assured that the new mom in your life will appreciate the thought and effort that went into choosing a practical, luxurious fabric.

For the mom who likes to relax

It’s essential that new moms spend quality time with their new baby. This means that she’ll spend hours on the couch or bed cuddling, playing, and bonding with her new child. As such, you want to be sure that your new mommy receives a gift to keep both her and baby comfortable as they build their relationship.

Think about investing in cashmere baby blankets for the little one and a cashmere mommy wrap for the new mom. Cashmere is soft but durable, light but warm. Cashmere breastfeeding wraps and baby blankets will ensure the two most important people in your life remain comfortable and safe.

It’s essential that you find a practical gift that the new mom in your life will love. After all, not just any gift will do. With the premium baby gifts from 10 To 12 Baby Lounge, you never need to worry about finding the perfect special gift. The new mom in your life will love the cashmere baby blanket set or breastfeeding wraps you give her this year.

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.

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!
