One of the things that was indispensable to me when I was pregnant was the things that were given to me by my parent friends. Not typical shower items, but things that were thoughtful, practical and most of all, tried and true favorites of theirs. Being a new parent is overwhelming and there are so many little things you don’t think about. Now that I’ve got a little more handle on things and infant-hood is behind me, I like to try and pay it forward and get something that are things that I can’t live without, along with essentials. And while I try not to push my greener lifestyle on people, I can’t in good conscience give someone something that I wouldn’t use on my own child. Which means that most of the stuff I do give has to be greener. And while there’s no doubt that the buzz phrase of 2008 will most likely be eco-friendly, a lot of people still turn to conventional baby products, because organic is either too expensive or hard to find, necessitating several trips or online purchases.
Enter Greenbaby Gifts. Oh how I wish I would have known about this even just a few short months ago when I was on the hunt for a more natural and organic gift basket. Owner Cynthia McGregor just wanted what was best for her baby and much like myself, found herself frustrated when she couldn’t find something affordable all in one spot.
Green baby gifts has incredible looking gift baskets for any budget and all of the items are either organic or made from sustainable eco-friendly fabrics. All items are hand picked and thoroughly researched and then packaged in a beautiful reusable recycled box that is perfect for keeping baby momentos. These boxes are gorgeous and the products inside are equally as gorgeous and well made. When I first opened the box I was awestruck. I’m definitely keeping these on my list of SafeMama approved products.
