Congratulations Meghan & Tom!

As I mentioned previously my good friend Meghan is having a baby girl next month. Last weekend I attended her baby shower and I have to say I agonized over what to get her. I knew she would receive oodles of pretty pastel clothes, blankets, and toys so my goal was to find gifts for her that were unique, functional, and hopefully memorable. In the end I decided on the following items:

Baby Shower Gift Ideas

I fell in love with these adorable MooMe bibs, packaged to resemble baby food jars, and had such a hard time deciding between the fruit and veggie versions that I ended up just buying both. In addition to being so darn cute the bibs also made of 100% organic cotton.

Future foodie babies need to start young so I couldn’t resist stocking baby Emily’s bookshelf with two timeless food filled storybooks: Cloudy With a Chance of Meatballs and Pickles to Pittsburgh.

Feeding Meghan’s baby is obviously my ultimate goal, and until she’s old enough to enjoy ice cream sandwiches and Pistachio Rocket Pops, her mom will be able to whip up healthy and wholesome meals for her with the assistance of the So Easy Baby Food kit and the First Meals cookbook. All of this undoubtedly delicious food can than be served on a whimsical La Mer ocean themed dinnerware set. Finally, just for fun, I included this ingenious Baby Owner’s Starter Kit, which comes with: The Baby Owner’s Manual, a growth chart with stickers for marking baby’s progress, a diaper changing Instructional poster (I could use this since I’ve honestly never changed a diaper in my life), a babysitter’s memo pad, and a decorative magnet.

Now we just have to wait for Baby Emily to make her grand debut so we can all begin her foodie education.

I just needed to tell you that I’ve just spent my entire Sunday afternoon on your site developing a serious girl crush on you 😉

Seriously, I went through all 40 pages and still want more. This site is absolutely wonderful and I’m SO happy I got to you through foodgawker. I love that you’re a Boston girl too! Yay!

very cool! i love the bibs especially! and i think the food stuff might be especially good because it’s for when baby’s a little older. i was talking to a mom the other day and she was saying how everyone buys stuff for newborns and then when your baby’s about a year old, they have nothing to wear! so this is not really clothes, but still things for a little older baby that mom and dad might not have time to shop for.

Your friend is lucky to have you! Those are all adorable. I’ve read those books to my boys and they are so cute. Good choice!

OK I usually just buy a couple things from the registry which now makes me feel like a bum. you really outdid yourself this time! Please give my love to Meghan at the shower and give Emily a squeeze for me (when she gets here) 🙂
