Organic Gifts for Babiez

Lolababiez OrganicsI can’t tell you how many times I’ve grappled over a gift for a new mom or mom-to-be because I wanted to give them something useful but also non-toxic/green/organic etc. Basically, I wanted to give them the same kinds of things I’d want for my own babies. The problem, however, is that we are a one income family and we have to live within certain budgetary constraints. Translation? I can’t always afford to buy the awesome new baby gifts I want to give. That’s why when I came across the baby gift sets at Lolababiez Organics, I had to share it with you. Not only do they come in a range of prices to suit every budget (starting at $25 and under) but the items in the sets are 1)cute/hip  2)useful (no stupid rhinestone-encrusted pacifiers!) 3)non-toxic/green/organic etc. and come in 100% recycled material boxes. Another item I HAVE to mention even though it’s not specifically green are the doorbell covers printed with messages to let guests know that your baby is sleeping so they don’t ring the bell or knock on the door. I wish I’d had one when my kids were babies. At this point, though, I just want to know why I didn’t think of these first because THEY ARE GENIUS. And lucky you! We’ve partnered with Lolababiez to give you a chance to win not only one of those genius doorbell covers but ALSO a Personalized Gift Set from Lolababiez containing one personalized embroidered organic tee and an organic doll of your choice. See details below!

Warm That Tushy!

9001_big.jpgI admit that I’ve never owned a wipe warmer. But I also admit that there were many, many times when I wished I did, such as when my little newborn baby would let out  painful howls of protest when touched by a cold, wet wipe *hangs head in shame*  Yes, I used disposable wipes back when being green meant you were probably going to yack all over someone’s shoes. These days, however, I know about all sorts of groovy green things, including reusable, chemical-free wipes made from non-toxic fibers like organic cotton and bamboo. And that cold, wet part? Not so much of an issue with a Warmies Wipe Warmer made especially for reusable wipes. And by using those reusable wipes, you’ll keep all those chemicals they use in conventional wipes away from your baby’s delicate skin AND avoid the painful howls of protest that come from putting an ice cold wipe on your baby’s tush. Sounds like a win-win to me.

What in the World is a Mermapillar?

ladybugs.pngEvery now and then, we come across some kind of organic clothing that we think is really special or unique. These organic cotton onesies by Mermapillar are one such example. As you probably know by now, organic cotton is mega-soft and is grown without the heavy pesticide load and processing chemicals associated with conventional cotton so two thumbs up for organic cotton, right? But the Mermapillar organic cotton onesies are special because you get to choose from 21 different little super-charming “merma-critter” appliques to be sewn on your item in the color of your choice so you essentially get a totally custom product. You can choose from hats, t-shirts, bibs, onesies and thermals to customize. Be warned, though…they’re so cute, you might be hard-pressed to choose just one!

When I Grow Up I Will….

tree_shirt01.jpgAaahh, it’s not often you get to ask yourself this question as a grown-up… and that’s exactly what makes these yummy, soft t-shirts so utterly inspiring to us of the older set, ahem. The natural-colored Value Statement™ tees from When I Grow Up are soft, comfortable and a great fit in 100% certified organic cotton and printed with water-based ink in the U.S.A. The “When I Grow up” clothing line is designed for 2T -8 year olds…but I’m secretly hoping that they expand to adult sizes because who wouldn’t want a “wear it, teach it, live it”…value statement tee shirt such as these: I will… plant a tree, I will… walk in someone elses shoes, I will… eat my vegetables, I will…give. They’re just the thing that Santa would bring <stocking stuffer alert!> since he has never really grown up himself!

Supercharged Sleeping

bbsheetcar.jpgWho says that organic cotton bedding has to be plain and boring? This supercharged sheet set by Pixel Organics is anything BUT boring and the retro red, white and blue print is “really cool!” as my son would say. This set is made in the U.S.A. of super soft organic sateen cotton with low-impact dyes, which we love, and they have actually enticed my son to get to bed on time which is no small feat. I think it’s safe to say these sheets totally RULE.
