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

Personalized Baby Gifts-Make it Special


A newborn baby is one of the most exciting life changing experiences in life. Celebrating the occasion calls for a  baby gift that’s every bit as unique and special as the new arrival. That’s why so many people turn to personalized baby gifts as their way to say welcome to the world.

So many Personalized Baby Gifts, so many Baby Names!

Silly Phillie® has sold over 150,000 personalized baby gifts over the past 20 years. While that fact is not surprising –  Silly Phillie®, after all, is a leading baby gift company – what is surprising is how many distinct names we’ve personalized on our baby gifts.

We have a total of 7500 different baby names in our database so far. That’s an enormous amount of names when you stop to think about it. This is especially astonishing when you consider that not too long ago new parents were selecting names from a very short list of popular names.

Baby Names-Trendier the Better

Trends come and go when it comes to naming a baby.  But one thing is paramount today. New parents want to give their baby a name that is different.  Sometimes that means choosing a conventional name but spelling it differently.  Two names with several spelling options are: Carlee, Carleigh, Carley, Carlie, Karlee, Karlie for girls;  or Casen, Cason, Cayson, Kasen, Kayson for boys.

An even bigger trend is choosing unconventional names inspired by a host of different influences. Here is what we see trending now:

Nouns: Rainbow, Snow, Ocean, Pine, Love, etc

Celestial objects: Moon, Nova, Luna Jupiter, Skye, etc.

Colors: Indigo, Blues, Red, Violet, Amber, Jade, etc

Another trend fueled by social changes is the redefining of gendered names.  Girls are being given names traditionally reserved for boys such as Max.  And boys are being given names more closely identified with girls such as Indigo. This clearly reflects the shifting values in our society toward the definition of gender.

Silly Phillie® offers a full collection of beautiful personalized baby gifts at Each one is made to order in Brooklyn, NY. and you can count it to be as special as the baby you are sending it to!

5 Best Baby Boy Gifts


Finding a gift for a baby boy has never been easier. Thousands of online retailers sell baby boy gifts today so finding one is as simple as doing a Google search.

But with the increase in the number of retailers selling baby gifts, there also has been an explosion in the variety of different products available, including baby gift baskets, diaper cakes, & Welcome Wagons™ to name a few.  So while finding a baby boy gift is easier, choosing the right one has become harder.

So how do you go about selecting that “perfect” baby boy gift? For starters, it’s important to consider whether the baby is a first born or not. If it’s a first child you can safely assume practically everything is needed.  I advise customers to check to see if a gift registry was setup. Choosing a gift from a registry is simple and ensures your gift will be needed and appreciated.

If he’s not a first born baby gear such as strollers, bouncers, car seats & slings can be eliminated from consideration. It’s safe to assume the parents already have this equipment to hand down. So the focus should turn to finding a unique baby boy gift. Here’s so help:

Sports Themed Baby Gift Basket.  New parents love baby gift baskets with a sports theme for their new baby boy.  If the parents are wild about a particular team, look for gifts with that team’s logo.

Four of the bibs feature a different holiday theme, while the fifth is a My First Birthday Bib. This gift therefore lasts baby’s entire first year, and offers the parents five opportunities to take a cute keepsake photo of baby on special occasions. It doesn’t get sweeter than that,  unless you’re Reid parents this Valentine’s day!

By the Way, the Diaper Cake shown in this post was custom made by Silly Phillie®. The plush bear sitting on top has a surfer theme because the proud father is a surfer dude from San Diego. Looks like Reid is already practicing his surfer moves!
