Quirky and Fun Gifts For the New or Expectant Arrival (Gift Guide)

If you know someone who is expecting this year and planning their child’s nursery or who recently welcomed a new arrival, and you want to gift that person something special for the Holidays, we’ve curated our pick of gifts all under $25 for you to consider.

1.  A personalized framed piece of wall art bearing the child’s name will be a sentimental surprise. There are a lot of small sellers on Etsy who will create one for you and ship  it off within days from order like this Custom baby nursery wall art Tiger nursery print which sells for only  $13.95

2. Keeping with that theme but going bigger, you can get an actual wooden sign from 8 to 24 inches tall in the baby’s name. It can be hung up in the baby’s nursery above the crib and it too is just  $13.95.

3. There are a lot of lamps on the market but this cotton elephant night light or lamp is perfect. It is not too bright and is whimsical and would stand out in any room. The company that sells this, Lily’s Lights, also makes multiple animals and colors. It’s just $24.95.

4. Music is great for babies. It’s wonderful for developing their inner outer ear development and balance. Also it is soothing. The Ocean Wave Projector night light comes with a built-in Music Player  and has 7 color changing modes. Baby will be mesmerized by the lights and lulled by the music. It costs $23.99.

5. When time comes to take the baby’s first portrait, mom and dad do not necessarily need to rush out and pay a professional photographer (or they can). AiXiAng  makes this adorable newborn photography handmade crochet knitted costume to wear to the shoot, at home or a photography studio. It’s a Christmas lion cap and pants set! Sooo cute! It’s only $12.85. Love it!

6. Help mom and dad save for their new baby with an adorable piggie bank! $24

7. This stars and moon night sky vinyl wall art decal sticker mural is adorable. It’ s white so you’d need to place it on a dark background. It’s 22 x 49 inches, which covers a wide area, and goes for $19.99

8. The trendy thing to do is take photos of the baby’s first month. These monthly stickers in a gender neutral color can be placed on the baby’s onesie or t-shirt before being snapped. The parents will be grateful for such a thoughtful gift. It is  $12.95.

9. Finally, I love Yi!’s monitors and the Wireless IP Video monitor with Night Vision would be awesome to be used as a nursery monitor and it is modestly priced at $24.50. 

Hope you love these ideas but even if you don’t perhaps they inspired you to get something similar, interesting or unique !


Eco-Friday: Alternative Holiday Gift Guide #GiftsWithACause

This holiday gift giving season as you are out and about shopping for commercial goods to give to family and friends, consider also gifting some alternative charitable goodies that can benefit impoverished people in America or other parts of the world.
Since 1996, the World Vision Gift Catalog has been offered to shoppers a selection of hand-crafted objects made in or inspired by the areas of the world the organization services. Last year, World Vision helped 822,000 people thought its catalog. 
In exchange for a specific donation, shoppers receive a gift for themselves or to give to someone else for the holidays, a birthday or some other occasion. 
The 64-year old old organization started out in 1950 aimed at helping orphans worldwide and now it focuses on poverty and injustice issues with 83% of its operating expenses going for programs to benefit children, families and communities in need. Only 5% of its 2013 expenses went to operational costs and 12% to fundraising…. 
…like for sending Bloggers like me a sample of an item from its catalog in exchange for sharing with our audiences about this option. 
The lovely African Soapstone Box I received is perfect for storing earrings.  Coated in light blue with an image of a giraffe, this ornate box features pretty details that will complement nearly any decor. Donations go toward the Kenyan artisans who crafted the box to help provide medical care for their families.  It is free with a donation of $85 to the organization. 

In addition, there are options in the gift registry that will be multiplied by matching government, corporate and foundation partners.  For example, perhaps in the name of a friend for Hanukkah, a donation gift of $25 will go towards $200 worth of supplies to help a poor family in America or a disaster relief victim. 
For those who are expecting and new parents and are grateful for being blessed with excellent healthcare and want to help mothers around the world get it too, there are options of donating towards Maternal Health in Afghanistan or a New Mother and Baby Kit
Consider checking out the catalog and donating on behalf of that person in your life who has everything! Thanks!
