Baby, Baby, Baby Ohhhhh!

I’m having a Justin Bieber moment, forgive me. After yesterday’s winefest, I decided to brand this week ‘monogram week’ and showcase items you can customize to your heart’s content.

It seems these days, half of the available jobs on the market are there because young ladies across the nation are having babies and going on maternity leaves. Yay for them! Also, yay for you for the chance to pick out an extra special shower gift, and many more to birthday gifts to come whether you’re welcoming a new niece or nephew, a grandchild, or taking on the role of surrogate uncle or auntie to your besties’ baby.

Of all the age groups out there that appreciate stuff with their name on it, none is quite so prolific as the younger set. Amazingly enough, there is a Canadian eTailer out there that specializes in adorable, high-quality, one-of-a-kind gear for tots of all ages, and they are my pick of the day for THE place to go for an incredibly special, personalized gift for the little ones in your life.

You Name It Baby
has a massive range of products, many of which are 100% customizable – from blankets and bags to Christmas stockings and clothing, the site features plush fabrics and make-you-melt product lines that will set your gift apart at the next shower or birthday you attend. The best part is, they also offer a pretty solid range of price ranges. If it’s your boss’ baby-to-be, consider checking out the $25 or less category for  Sam’s first monogrammed towel, or Casey’s soon-to-be-favourite teddybear.

If it’s for your nearest and dearest, consider going in with a friend and scooping up the entire Dimple Dot line of products – including these oh so cute robes at $39+, as well as the matching blankies and crib blankets.

Or you can make your life easy as pie and take a peek at one of YNIB!’s super cute and ready to go gift sets in a range of prices from $25 to $70 – all firmly within the appropriate price range to spend on a proud mommy. Aside from the ability to customize things, I’m obviously a big supporter of this site as a Canadian retailer that provides quality items at a comparable price to anything you’d find in a baby boutique.

On that note, if you’re the expecting parents, you can also set up your own gift registry with You Name It Baby! So if you’re pining for a customized canvas to finish off your nursery or you know you son or daughter would flip for a Cubino chair or loveseat of their own, then head over there and set one up as a charming alternative to the Wal-Mart and Toys R Us registries of the world. Your friends and family will thank you when they log onto the site and squeal at the cuteness!

    Your website is fantastic – what a great idea, and one I intend on coming to for holiday shopping (and everything in between)!

    I would love to send some information on to you about a really great Vancouver-based kid’s product including holiday gifting ideas that I think would coincide perfectly with the coverage on your site. Is there an email address I can reach you for further correspondence?

    Thank you!
