Personalized Gifts Galore - Part 1
Hello world! Ava James here, a.k.a. Kitten Meow, #avakittenmeow. This is my first guest post on Mommy's blog. I'm so excited to share with you all the cool things going on in my new little life.
In my almost 6 months of existence, Mommy and I have written out over 70 thank you cards to friends and family who have sent wonderful gifts in honor of my birth. That's not even counting all the thank you cards that went out for baby shower gifts before I was born. I have to say, I'm pretty darn lucky! #blessed
I can't deny I love anything with my name on it... Ava James Hildner (fun fact: Mom & Dad thought of the name back when they were only dating). Below, I'm sharing my Top 10 Personalized Gifts for little girl babes like me (in no particular order)! This will be a two part series though. Mommy says I need to go down for a napper soon.
1. Monogram Quilt
Mommy says some household items are to be used and others are to be displayed for decoration purposes only. This Monogram Baby Quilt from Southern SALT Boutique definitely falls into the latter category. It's proudly displayed on the opposite end of my crib, out of harms way. Once I start moving and shaking Mommy will probably find a new home for it to keep me safe.
Not pictured, but equally loved, is this beautiful minky blanket from BabyBoos on Etsy. This soft and cuddly blanket is my go to for car rides to keep my little leg rolls warm!
2. Hooded Unicorn Bath Towel
My favorite part of the day is by far BATH TIME. Sometimes Mommy will put me in the bath when I'm being a little crab apple just to put a smile on my face. This Unicorn Hooded Bath Towel from Pottery Barn is one of my most favorite and super duper stylish towels for bath time fun. Auntie Kristen even had my name embroidered on the back! After my bath I like to look at myself in the mirror and bask in all the unicorn cuteness.
Not pictured, but EQUALLY in love with, are these fantastic Boogie Baby Hooded Towels sold at Neiman Marcus. I love my Fairy Tale one and they come in lots of other colors and designs for boys and girls. They are generous in size and will last me forever. I'm definitely the coolest kid at the pool with this bad boy!
3. Orbit Labels
Don't want anyone trying to steal my milky! These customized Orbit Labels by inchbug are a really neat way to label my bottles and soon to be sippy cups! They come in a wide variety of colors, but pink and blue are really my jam...being a little DG legacy and all.
4. Nursery Birth Record Prints
It wouldn't be Mommy's blog without a shameless plug for her designs. A Kitty Meow Birth Record print is the perfect way to document your arrival into this great big world! They come in all different styles and colors to suit your fancy. All the cool kids have them in their nursery!
5. Custom Painted Letters
Auntie Olena surprised me with these AWESOME letters for my bedroom from Bella Baby Creationz. She was super sneaky and asked Mommy for some pics of the nursery. We were both so thrilled to have my name matching the sweet little animals displayed over my crib. Mom calls my nursery theme "Magical Fancy Forest", and these little critters are the perfect addition! It's pretty incredible how Gina from Bella Baby was able to paint them PERFECTLY!
Check back next week as I reveal the last 5 of my favorite Personalized Gifts. I have so many cool ideas it's going to be hard to keep my list to 10! What are some of your favorite personalized gifts for little babes? Please leave your feedback in the comments below!
