Unique personalized baby gifts from Silly Phillie

Unique Personalized Baby Gifts Impress

Unique personalized baby gifts make a memorable impression. After all, new parents love seeing their baby’s name or monogram on a gift, especially if it’s a gift of quality.

Moreover, unique personalized baby gifts create more than immediate excitement. Usually they become treasured keepsakes that parents hold onto long after their baby grows.

Consider Giving these Unique Personalized Baby Gifts

As expected, there’s no shortage of personalized baby gifts to choose from. The list ranges from simple items like a personalized onsie, to more elaborate gifts such as a personalized rocking horse gift set.

The following are some of my favorite unique personalized baby gifts:

Unique Personalized Baby Gifts-premium terry bathrobes & hooded towels

Ultimate Terry Personalized Bathrobes

  1. Personalized Rocking Chair. Parents love receiving a rocking chair gift for their newborn. A rocking chair looks great in the nursery and baby will love it too once he or she is ready to sit in it.
  2. Sterling Silver Engraved Gifts from Tiffany. Nothing impresses new parents more than a gift from the company with that iconic blue box. Tiffany has many unique personalized baby gifts to choose from. Sure they’re expensive. But that’s the price you pay for a keepsake quality baby gift.
  3. 7-Piece Personalized Layette. This is one of my favorite personalized baby gifts. It includes 7 premium quality layette items, all made in the USA by Silly Phillie®. Each comes tastefully embroidered with baby’s 3-letter monogram to create a unique personalized baby gift.
  4. Personalized Wooden Name Puzzle.   This gift new parents will treasure forever. I know because I still have the ones I received when my sons were born quite some time ago. I found a shop on Etsy that seems to be making beautiful ones today.
  5. Personalized Bathrobes from Silly Phillie®.  When in doubt, you never can go wrong gifting one of these beauties. For starters, they’re made from a luxurious ultimate terry velour fabric. In addition, they’re made in the USA by Silly Phillie® so you know the workmanship quality is superb. Finally,  you can choose from a wide assortment of adorable designs.

One note of caution. Make sure you have the correct spelling of baby’s name before ordering a personalized gift. New parents today are coming up with uncommon ways of spelling names. Once a gift is personalized you own it!

Celebrity Baby Gift Made for Hoda Kotb

It’s always a source of excitement whenever Silly Phillie® is asked to make a celebrity baby gift. Hoda Kotb is the latest celebrity to receive a Silly Phillie baby gift.  As many of you know, Hoda Kotb is a noted newscaster and co-hosts NBC’S Today Show.

Ms. Kotb recently revealed that she adopted a baby girl and named her Haley Joy. It was an emotional event to say the least. Ms. Kotb battled cancer more than 10 years ago, leaving her unable to conceive a child.  She is experiencing the joy of motherhood for the first time at the age of 52.

But there ‘s more good news for Hoda Kotb.  Soon after adopting Haley Joy she announced plans to marry her boy friend, Joel Schiffman. Mr. Schiffman, 58 years of age, is Vice President & Director, Financial Institutions at Janus Capital Group. The two have been dating for 5 years and living together for over a year.

Celebrity Baby Gift – nothing new for Silly Phillie®

Celebrity Baby Gift for Haley Joy

Personalized Rocking Horse for Haley Joy

Few manufacturers make more baby gifts for celebrities than Silly Phillie®. Sometimes orders are placed directly on www.sillyphillie.com and sometimes we receive a call from the gift giver. Hoda Kotb’s gift was actually sold by All About Gifts & Baskets, one of our valued re-sellers.

In either case, the gift is designed and made to order by Silly Phillie®.  Our most popular celebrity baby gift is either a Personalized Rocking Horse-like the one we did for Haley Joy- or a Deluxe Welcome Wagon. Both are fabulous high quality gifts that will impress even a celebrity!

Unique Baby Gifts for Girl are Special

Unique Baby Gifts for Girl that Impress

Unique baby gifts for girl surprisingly are not that easy to find. Not because there’s a lack of choices. Quite the contrary.  The market is inundated with baby girl gifts making it difficult to sort through the clutter.

Another factor is that most baby gifts for girl look too much alike.  Unfortunately, many product designers/manufacturers are content to offer “me to” products rather than coming up with original design ideas. This a pet peeve of mine as a designer,  but that’s a subject for another day.

5 Unique Baby Gifts for Girl

Unique Baby Gift for Girl-Pretty in Pink Welcome Wagon

Pretty in Pink Welcome Wagon

  1. Pretty in Pink Deluxe Welcome Wagon. Every little girl should have her own special welcome wagon pull toy.  This limited edition one from Silly Phillie® is pretty in pink, filled with gorgeous layette and can be personalized too!
  2. Triple Layer Grand Baby Cake.  Baby girl gifts don’t come tastier than this diaper cake from 1800flowers.  Three layers tall and made with premium ingredients, this one will satisfy anyone’s craving for a unique baby girl gift.
  3. Baby Girl Rocking Hose and Layette.  A classic baby gift if there ever was one. However, you won’t find solid wood rocking horse gift sets everywhere these days. Check it out at storkbabygifts.com.
  4. Owl Character Hooded Towel. There’s lots of hooded towels for baby girls but only one you’ll give a “hoot” about. Precious design and top quality too. Check it out at buybuybuy.com.

Thank Goodness forLittle Boys Baby Gift Basket

Silly Phillie Introduces New Baby Boy Gift Basket

I’ve been thinking a lot lately about Baby Gift Baskets.  It began with the article I posted last week in Silly Phillie News titled “New Parents Love Unique Baby Gift Baskets“. It got my creative juices flowing and inspired me to design a new baby boy gift basket.

“Thank Goodness” Baby Boy Gift Basket

Anyone in the market for a baby boy gift should love this new gift basket.  For starters, it features an attractive & functional linen storage basket.  The basket itself can be monogrammed with baby’s first or last initial to create a personalized baby gift.

Next, the basket is filled with cool things for baby. The signature piece is a premium quality 100% cotton interlock sleep gown & hat set.  The gown is embroidered with a charming “Thank Goodness for Little Boys” design .

Finally, this handsome baby boy gift basket is beautifully presented and elegantly wrapped in tulle to impress the new parents.

Baby Gift Baskets make choosing a baby gift simple

Many people surprisingly have a hard time choosing a baby gift. Partly because purchasing one is not an everyday occurrence and partly because some find it difficult deciding on items for a newborn baby.

A gift basket therefore takes the hassle out of making a decision. One caveat. Don’t be fooled by looks alone. Make sure the basket is filled with premium contents the new parents will appreciate using for their baby. One such example is the Snuggle Bunny Gift Baskets made by Silly Phillie® for BuyBuyBaby.

Unique Baby Gift Baskets from Silly Phillie

New Parents Love Unique Baby Gift Baskets with Premium Quality layette

New parents receive lots of baby gifts. The avalanche begins at the baby shower, and continues well after baby is born. Moreover, unique baby gift baskets are among the gifts that make the biggest impression.

Unique baby gift baskets are special

Froggie & Friends Unique Baby Gift Baskets

Everyone loves a gift basket. In fact, gift baskets make an excellent choice not only as a baby  gift, but also to celebrate just about any other special occasion. Here’s why: 1) they make choosing a gift easy; 2) they usually come filled with lots of cool stuff; and 3) they look impressive.  An example of a fantastic baby gift basket is the Froggie & Friends New Baby Gift Baskets  made by Silly Phillie® for 1800Baskets.com.

But don’t be fooled by looks alone. Many gift baskets look good but are filled with inferior merchandise. The old saying “don’t be fooled by the wrapping paper” makes sense when choosing a gift basket.

unique baby shower diaper cakes for twins

New from Silly Phillie®-Unique Baby Shower Diaper Cakes

Unique Baby Shower Diaper Cakes are always a big hit at a baby shower.  In fact,  you’ll often see one used as a baby shower centerpiece to decorate the table of the mother-to-be.  Sometimes, mini diaper cakes will be placed on each table at the shower to create a festive baby mood.

Traditional Baby Shower Diaper Cakes

Tasty Baby Shower Diaper Cakes made by Silly Phillie

Traditional diaper cakes are designed to look just like a cake.  Most often they come in two, three, and four layer configurations. Really good ones look fabulous and are made with diapers plus quality layette items for baby. The above photo, for example,  shows multi layer diaper cakes in pink and blue made by Silly Phillie® for 1800flowers.

Unique Baby Shower Diaper Cakes don’t have to look like a Cake

Who says all diaper cakes must look like a cake? Today, you’ll find many less traditional “diaper cakes” designed to look like something other than a cake. Some examples Include baby carriages, bassinets, strollers, sailboats, and lots of different animals.

In fact, Silly Phillie® just introduced two new animal inspired variations of a diaper cake. The first is an Elephant Diaper Cake for Twins.  It includes diapers and layette items for both babies! In addition, the gift can be customized to match the gender of the new arrivals. Gifts for twins are hard to find. Check out

Unique Baby Shoer Diaper Cakes-Caterpillar Gift Set

The second is the Caterpillar Baby Shower Centerpiece Gift Set.

Postpartum Depression hits Chrisssy Teigen

Chrissey Teigen announces she suffers from Postpartum Depression

Postpartum Depression or PPD is not a subject we’ve talked about before on this Silly Phillie® blog. Our focus as a baby gift company is on celebrating pregnancy and birth. However, Postpartum Depression along with the less severe condition of Baby Blues unfortunately is a bi-product of birth for many women.

Just this morning as I was dressing for work I heard Chrissey Teigen being interviewed on a morning news show.  She was talking in great detail about her painful bout with Postpartum Depression and Anxiety following the birth of her daughter Luna Simone. In fact, the April edition of Glamour Magazine  has a cover story on Chrissey’s experience with this painful condition.

Even Celebrities are not immune to Postpartum Depression

Chrissey Teigen leads a charmed life by most standards.  She is absolutely gorgeous, she is a successful model and author, she’s married to John Legend the very talented musician, and she delivered a healthy baby girl. So why did Chrissey become depressed after giving birth?

According to health care experts, Postpartum Depression hits 1 in 7 women following birth. Apparently it doesn’t discriminate and can effect anyone. PPD can happen anytime after childbirth but It often starts 1 to 3 weeks after having a baby. According to the March of Dimes, PPD is a medical condition that requires treatment to get better.

What causes Postpartum Depression?

Experts are not quite sure what brings on PPD. Changing levels of the hormones estrogen and progesterone following birth along with Low levels of thyroid hormones are thought to be contributing factors.  In addition, you my be of high risk if you are younger than 20, lead a stressful life, have a history of depression, and have negative thoughts about being a mom.

How does PPD differ from the Baby Blues?

Fit Pregnancy Magazine published an excellent article titled The Difference Between the Baby Blues and Postpartum Depression.  Baby Blues is basically a more common less severe version of PPD.  Some studies indicate that at least 70% of new moms suffer the baby blues following birth. But these feelings usually last for just a few weeks. PPD on the other has more intense emotions and lasts far longer.

Whether you have PPD or are going through a period of the the baby blues, it’s important to understand that these are normal feelings experienced by lots of new moms. You’re not alone and there are many resources to help you work through this emotional phase after giving birth. Postpartum Support International  is a great place to find information on all subjects related to PPD.

I hope this helps.

Corparate baby gifts make happy employees

Beautiful Corporate Baby Gifts Customized by Silly Phillie®

As companies strive to establish themselves as compelling places to work, corporate baby gifts are on the rise, along with other family oriented benefits. A happy employee after all is a productive employee.

It is not uncommon today for companies both large and small to offer perks such as extended paid maternity leave, valuable child care options and flexible work arrangements. All of these benefits lead to higher employee retention rates and greater workplace satisfaction.

Corporate Baby Gifts Make Sense 

Employees are keenly aware of the family oriented benefits their company offers. In fact, these perks help attract new hires in the first place.   The benefits are expected and counted on whenever the need arises.

A baby gift on the other hand is an unexpected surprise.  When new parents receive a beautiful gift from their company it is much more personal. It sends a message of warmth and caring that builds a stronger relationships between the two.

What to look for in Corporate Baby Gifts

Gone are the days when any baby gift will suffice.  Businesses these days want gifts that are unique, impressive and consistently high in quality.  More often than not, a company will have a baby gift customized for them.  For example, one large financial company we know sends a personalized baby gift with information on setting up a college fund. Another well known Healthcare company gives a gift whenever they learn that an employee is expecting a new baby. Their gift appropriately includes a helpful Pregnancy Handbook.

Where to find Quality Corporate Baby Gifts

Corporate Baby Gifts customized by Silly Phillie

Unique Baby Gifts By Silly Phillie

The best corporate baby gifts are found online. That’s because e-commerce baby boutiques are able to offer a much larger selection of unique baby gifts than traditional retail stores. Also, they are are much better able to customize gifts.

Most online boutiques do not actually design or manufacture the products they sell. Instead, they depend on manufacturers like Silly Phillie® to provide products and handle the fulfillment. In other words, they are not unlike a retail store that carries merchandise from various manufacturers.

Whether working with a re-seller or directly with a manufacturer, product quality is the top priority.  Consequently, make sure the business entrusted to handle your corporate baby gifts has a proven track record of excellence.  After all, a company’s reputation is on the line each time it sends a baby gift to a valued employee or client.

Finally, it pays to know the tax implications of gift giving.  LBMC, a full service accounting firm, published an informative article on the topic in November 2016. Please click here to read it.

Friendly Frog Ultimate Terry Bath Time gift set

Luxury Baby Gifts Made To Order By Silly Phillie

 

Silly Phillie® is known for making luxury baby gifts. Those gifts usually share common traits such as a distinctive style, upscale components for baby, plus a knockout gift presentation that never fails to impress even the most discerning of new parents.

Luxury Baby Gifts from Silly Phillie®

Many of the company’s luxury baby gifts are indeed large creations featuring a signature component. Examples include our beautiful wood rocking horses, rocking chairs, and  Deluxe Welcome Wagon™ toys.  These items usually come embellished with an abundance of quality layette items.

The latest luxury baby gifts from Silly Phillie® take a different path. Rather than basing the gift around a premium wood toy, these new gifts are luxurious based on the quality of the fabric and distinctiveness of the design.

That fabric is a super premium quality terry velour. It is meticulously woven from 14 oz 100% combed cotton yarn.  The result is a fabric so soft,  so absorbent  and so luxurious we had to call it “Ultimate Terry Velour”.  As a result, all of our hooded towels, bathrobes, bibs and burp pads are simply a cut above other quality terry items for baby.

Ultimate Terry Velour + Unique Designs = Luxury Baby Gifts

Friendly Frog Baby Bath time Ensemble is the latest luxury baby gift from Silly Phillie® featuring Ultimate Terry Velour fabric. The set includes a luxurious hooded bathrobe (18 mos.) and over-sized hooded towel (28″ x 44″). Both items feature an adorable frog design on the hood and are made to order in the USA by Silly Phillie®. The gift can also be ordered personalized as an option.
