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.

New Addition Liam the Lion to the Cashmere Baby Blanket Collection!

We are so excited to introduce the world to our playful young cub, Liam the Lion; the  newest face of your premium cashmere baby blankets. Don’t you love his sweet face?! Liam joins our stars Gavin the Goat and Kiwi the Cat, who are already making a name for themselves as some of the best baby gifts out there.

Meet Liam

Liam the Lion is not your average Lion, of average animal stories. No, Liam is quite special. Liam loves to travel! Liam seeks culture! He hails from the great Mozambique in Africa, where he likes to spend his days frolicking in the vast savanna and splashing in cool creeks. While enjoying his beautiful homeland one day, he came across some visitors who introduced him to a scrumptious treat: an oatmeal cookie! Eager for more, and always up for a new adventure, Liam boarded the next plane to New York City.

 

So busy! he thought, but still oh so pretty!

He followed his nose to a bakery shop

and ordered six cookies, he ate without stop!

 

Having satisfied his curiosity, and his appetite, Liam headed back home (but not without some more cookies for the long journey, of course!) As with many a weary traveller, Liam was happy to return home for some much needed rest. Rest that was best accompanied by his favorite cashmere baby blanket.

 

Liam’s Cashmere Baby Blanket

Liam the Lion comes in our signature premium machine-washable cashmere. The soft colors make this cashmere baby blanket as beautiful as it is snuggly. Never far from his new foodie obsession, Liam is seen with a stack of hearty oatmeal cookies by his side. Detailed hand-embroidery work makes Liam’s face come to life, with a bold, savanna-inspired red. And of course, colorful pom-poms dangle from Liam’s feet to encourage sensory play for baby (and something perfect to cuddle when dozing off to sleep).

 

Because we know Liam will be well-loved wherever he roams, the cashmere baby blanket comes in our unique baby keepsake box. Not only will this box provide a safe place for Liam to be kept long after blanket snuggling years, it also has a special place to keep other precious baby memories, like a lock of hair from baby’s first haircut or baby’s first photo. Buying a security blanket as a gift for a special new sweetie in your life? Our baby keepsake box needs no gift wrapping! A simple ribbon can make this box an elegant addition to any baby shower gift table.

 

Why Animal Stories?

As with every cashmere baby blanket in our collection, the story of Liam the Lion comes included as part of our unique baby keepsake box. Just like the babies in our lives, the faces on our blankets each have their own unique story. These sweet animal stories encourage imagination and exploration to the little ears that hear them. The faces on our blankets come to life and help establish a bond that can last a lifetime. Not only does baby enjoy the cuddliness of the softest cashmere in the world, they also get a friend who can go on great adventures with them. Because at 10to12 Baby Lounge, we believe that the best baby gifts are the ones that help make lasting memories.
