Angelic Baby Shower Gifts for Mom & Baby

Mama & Baby Care Basket

Even if they are not planning on using cloth diapers, I usually give them just a little touch of cloth in their gift.  I always give them a copy of Changing Diapers book by Kelly Wels and I usually highlight a few of my favorite sections.  With the book I usually try to give them just one cloth diaper so they can touch it, feel it, and maybe even use it for one of their new baby photos (because they are just so much cuter in pictures than disposables).  Yes, I have friends who have never used their cloth diaper, but I hope that it will find it's way to a mom who will show it some love.

ecocentric mom subscription box

I really do enjoy receiving mail from (aff link--->) ecocentric mom; it's one time of the month when I actually look forward to opening the mailbox.  Each month I receive a small box packed full of eco-friendly products just for me! The November box arrived last week and did not disappoint.  Tonight I made myself a nice cup of White Goji Blossom tea from Miss Tea (certified organic loose leaf tea) and nibbled on a Rugers Gluten Free/Wheat Free/GMO Free Chocolate Wafer bar.  While they have mom-to-be and mom & baby boxes I really, truly love my mom box!  I even save the treats for after the kids are in bed so I don't have to share. What other surprises are hidden inside the ecocentric mom boxes?  This month there are 2 sample size pouches of Rockin' Green Soap laundry detergent (sweet) which is perfect for any stinky laundry; including cloth diapers!  There was one little item that I'll share with the kids; a new book by Unboxed Art, "The Earth, the Alphabet and Me."  Want ...

  Have I mentioned how much I love my monthly subscription box from ecocentric mom?  Each month I get a little box full of eco-friendly goodies for me (and sometimes a few to share with friends, family, and the kids).  For August I decided to try something different, instead of the mom box I got the mom & baby discovery box.  I have a few friends who are pregnant and the little baby items will make cute gifts. Some of my favorite goodies from the August box include: gao.  A natural wooden fish teether from Liku Gao on Etsy. Nature's Baby Organics.  Shampoo, Body Wash, Conditioner, Detangler, and aromatherapy calming spray.  The light scents of vanilla tangerine and lovely lavender are so sweet and calming.

Truebar by Bakery on Main.  The ecocentric mom box would not be complete ... [ Read More ]
