2. SUPER Fast (almost) Instant Drying Top CoatSo apparently Oxblood Nail Polish is the color for the season. But if you’re a new mom you know that trying to paint your nails during nap time is risky. The moment the polish goes on, the little one cries and how do you pick up a baby with wet nails? My mom got me these: Duri: Drop N Go Drying Drops and it is the only way I can attempt to paint my nails with a little one around. It really works, trust me. Wouldn’t it be a cute little stocking stuffer with a your favorite color polish and a new nail file?
For the coffee or tea drinker in your life, these are a mom’s best friend because they are throw-it-in-your-purse-diaper-bag-or-car spill proof. No joke. No leaks. Nada. They’re made for hot drinks, but if you’re nursing and trying to stay hydrated you can just fill it with water and take it wherever you go. I usually buy a two pack. One for mom and one for the husband.
This one and this one are on my wishlist.
Let’s be honest though, as soon as your little one can grab and pull you can say good-bye to hanging necklaces. Except for this chic-baby-friendly-chewable necklace! I am eyeing this one and this one from Lady Lee and Drew Jones etsy shop.
We received one of these as a gift for our little girl and it is absolutely thee softest, best cuddle blanket we have. My only complaint…is that it’s not bigger. Well, The Little Giraffe does make adult size blankets! They are ridiculously over priced, but if you’re in the mood to splurge you won’t be disappointed. (Although I bet you could find something similar at Costco ☺)
Let’s be honest most moms have grand plans of starting a baby book for their new little bundle of joy…but if you’re like me, that bundle of joy takes up a lot more time that you expected and the baby book you purchased remains empty. I love this company because they combine quality printing with super easy and efficient ordering. (read: you can click and order off your phone!) You can finally use the hundreds of photos that have been sitting on your iPhone and have an adorable photo booked shipped to your house for $16.99. How cute would it be to do one for each month? Baby-book guilt be gone!
At about 6-8 weeks after the birth of a little one, most moms are ready for a little break. They are also usually ready for a haircut! My sister was here right at the 8-week mark and she watched my daughter so I could spend an hour getting my haircut. It was a godsend. What a great gift to get a new mom a gift card for her to get her hair cut and offer to watch the baby?
Ok, these books are really for mama and baby, but they are two of my favorites:
If I Could Keep You Little and You Are My I Love You! And for any Spanish speaking families, this one you can get as a bilingual English/Spanish book, Tu Eres MI Te Quiero.
