If I remember correctly, I have talked about the company Bookroo before. When Saylor was younger, I had gotten the Board Book Box which comes with 3 books. They were perfect for her when she was little, when she enjoyed looking at the bright colors and pictures. Now that she is older and starting to read a little bit, I wanted to get her some books geared towards older kids.
Each month Saylor gets a cute package of 2 wrapped books. And I mean literally, wrapped! She loves it so much because she feels like she is really getting something special. I love that their company takes the time to make things special for the kids. It also comes with a little card, telling a bit about the books of the month.
Hi! If you are like me, and still looking for gifts…look no further! I have rounded up a few of my FAVE things for littles. We’re talking 2 and under.
My first favorite things to gift are books. Who doesn’t love books?! Saylor has shown interest in them since she was tiny, and I love that. What is even better than books, is a book subscription! What I love about Bookroo is that your subscription is based on age. You pick 0-2 and 2-6. Pictured here is the 0-2 option, and they are board books which is great! You get 3 books each time for 0-2, and 2 books for 2-6. Use code ROBYMEAC for a surprise at checkout!
Does anyone feel like they are really good at giving baby shower gifts? I do! Haha, honestly though, being a mom has made me really aware of what to give for gifts. Before having Saylor, I was a big giver of clothes, which don’t get me wrong, clothes are amazing to get because, duh, our babies need clothes! But, now I give gifts based on a few things. First, necessary things that you will need for a long time (IE diapers, wipes, diaper bag!). And second, things that you wouldn’t necessarily buy for yourself, things that you wouldn’t think you need, or things that you may not have heard of (IE DockATot, Solly wrap, Milestone Cards).
Growing up, back to school shopping was always the best, right? Well now that I have a daughter that is in (pre)school, I get to do some back to school shopping! Not that you really “need” anything at 3 years old, but it is still so fun to get new things!
Have you guys heard of pediped? Back when Saylor was first starting to walk, I was introduced to them. They are known for being the best flexible, soft-soled infant shoes to learn to walk in. They have a wide range of different styles, and are exceptional quality. We love our “Silver Shoes” as Saylor calls them, and I love that I don’t worry about her little feet being uncomfortable. Be sure to check out my Instagram where you can win your own pair!
What mom doesn’t love books and reading? Saylor has always loved to “read” from the time she was just a little babe. Even though our babies may not be able to understand what we read to them, or read by themselves, science has proven that it is so important! It literally gets their little brains going, creates imagination and memories, and can increase their little vocabularies.
When I discovered Bookroo, I knew that it was something Saylor and I could enjoy together. It is a monthly book subscription, ran by actual mom’s! Who get it! Sometimes picking up books and going to the library can be inconvenient, so subscribing to Bookroo is a new brainer. I also immediately thought that this would be a great baby shower gift for someone who needs to grow their collection! Look at how cute the packaging is…you know I appreciate good packaging!
