We particularly like the rose gold or  hot pink and red acrylic name and monogram necklaces for holiday gifts and even for Valentine's Day and Mother's Day.

Best Personalized Jewelry

I am especially partial to the children's name necklaces since my own wonderful mom gave all her daughters a name necklace for our birthdays many moons ago.  They were particularly helpful for my sisters since their friends often had difficulty knowing which name went to which twin.  🙂 — Happy birthday Caryn & Carole!

Check out Adele wearing a personalized name necklace – still hard to read the name but the buzz is it is the name of her baby!  Since this necklace is right on trend, we wouldn't be at all surprised if we see Princess Kate wearing a George name necklace this Mother's Day.

Planning a wedding?  Personalized name jewelry make great bridesmaid gifts too!

African Inspired Safari Theme Nursery Ideas

Our obsession with the royal family continues! Prince William just announced that Prince George's bedroom will be decorated with jungle safari theme nursery decor, in deference to his family’s love of Africa. “I’ll have toy elephants and rhinos around the room … “We’ll cover it in, you know, lots of bushes and things like that. [We'll] make him grow up as if he’s in the bush,” the new dad said in CNN’s one-hour special, “Prince William’s Passion: New Father, New Hope.”

So knowing that so many mom's-to-be look to the young royals for style ideas, whether it be their choice of strollers or baby names,  we have put together an inspiration board with lots of adorable safari theme nursery decor ideas.  Any of these nursery essentials would all be much appreciated gifts at any African inspired safari theme baby shower or even an elephant or giraffe theme baby shower.

Royal Family Home Photos | Aden & Anais Baby Blanket

How sweet is this picture!  Kate's dad, Michael Middleton snapped this photo of the young royals holding Prince George and posed with their cocker spaniel, Lupo.  Would this not make the cutest holiday card ever!  The Royal family looks relaxed and happy and both the baby and the puppy are simply adorable.

Although it is difficult to tell, it appears as if the young prince is wrapped in a fresh, crisp white blanket much like the one he came home from the hospital in.  It seems as if the Duchess taste leans toward clean simplicty. We love these all white Aden & Anais Dreamer Swaddling Blankets 

Aden Anais Dreamer Swaddling Blankets

Eco-friendly Aden + Anais sources organic muslin to create the ultimate in soft and durable baby essentials. Featuring colorful and unique prints, Aden and Anais’swaddling wraps, sleep sacks, bedding and blankets envelop babies in warm comfort, while bibs, changing pad covers, towels, washcloths and skin care accessories ensure all needs are met with quality products. Cozy and lasting, Aden and Anais products make the perfect baby gift for new moms and baby showers

The swaddling blankets allow for maxium breathability and airflow with soft, open weave bamboo rayon fabric. Blankets come in sets of four and each set features different patterns and prints. They can be used for traditional swaddling or as a burp cloth, nursing shield or stroller cover. Machine washable swaddles get softer after each laundering.  

Haven’t learned or can’t quite remember the ins and outs and folds and tucks of swaddling. Check out these How to Swaddle Instructions.

Prince George Comes Home from the Hospital Swaddled in Aden + Anais

Aden + Anais Swaddling Blanket

As His Royal Highness Prince George of Cambridge heads home in this adorable soft and cozy Aden + Anais Jungle Jam Bird Swaddle Wrap swaddling blanket, I can't help but reminisce about my first swaddling adventure.

Daniel, my first born, developed jaundice soon after he was born.  The doctor suggested we put him in the window to expose him to sunlight. The problem is the nurses also drilled into my husband and me the importance of swaddling newborns. Being the new and inexperienced parents we were, Matt and I obediently followed both instructions at the same time.  When Matt's dad, an renowned New York OB/GYN discovered his 2nd born grandson cooking in the window, he lost it.  He truly thought I had to be the most inept mother on earth .  Ever since I have been absolutely mortified by my complete lack of common sense during those first few days as a new mom.  This is why I once again implore everyone to give the Duke and Duchess of Cambridge a modicum of  privacy to allow them to make the mistakes every new parent inevitably makes without broadcasting each personal embarrassment to the world.

Enough reminiscing. Why are Aden + Anais swaddling blankets fit for a royal baby?

Great Gift for New Moms – Beautiful Custom Journals

Do you have a new mom on your holiday shopping list? These beautiful, customizable notebooks make perfect holiday gifts.  While mother and child are busy making memories during the day, mom can spend her few quiet hours memorializing them in her new custom journal. I know, I know – no one thinks they will forget these moments but as time goes by, most of us need a bit of refreshing on some of the little details.  I never thought I would admit this but even though the visions are seared in my memory forever, for the life of me I cannot remember the exact days my children first smiled, or sat up, or spoke their first words.  Today I sure wish I had taken the time to write down the details in a beautiful custom journal.
