Gift IdeasSleeping Baby Inc is the home of the Zipadee-Zip Swaddle Transition solution! The Zipadee-Zip was originally created for a little girl who refused to sleep without being swaddled ๐Ÿ˜‰ It’s meant for babies 3 months and older and it provides a woomb-like environment, but with room to push up, roll over, and wiggle around safely. The slight resistance in the “wing-span” helps a baby self-soothe and sleep better than they would in a traditional sleep sack or PJs.

    Girls love anything as long as it is about Barbie. I can vouch for this as both my grandchildren and Greatgrandchildren(girls) love any thing connected to HER.

    I really like the DIY microwave bean bags

  15. WisteriaGirl says:

    I love the craft for teachers. I know that I spent a pretty penny on Sara’s teachers at year end and I actually think that handmade gifts are so much more appreciated.

  16. April Farley says:

    I love these gift ideas! Each are unique in their own right. I especially love the ideas for end of school year. Very sweet!

  17. Cheryl says:

    I love the Sugar Bush Fairies door for my tree!

  18. cole mckinnon says:

    I agree that teacher’s prefer hand-made gifts from their students. It’s so easy for a parent to purchase something, but it’s not all that meaningful. Like others, I like the Sugar Bush Fairies, all of them. Now that it is my granddaughters in school, rather than my child, I seem to take more care in supporting their teachers and making sure they feel appreciated. I think it’s because my life is not so hectic and I have more time to pay attention to the important things in life.

  19. cole mckinnon says:

    I love the idea of a fully illustrated book, a CD to sing along and an app that plays an animation on your computer. What a fantastic idea.

  20. Amy Lovell says:

    Thanks I love idea fpr new and expectant mom!

  29. Cheryl says:

    I really like the end of school gifts for the teacher!

  40. kathy downey says:

    Snappy Towels sell towels with snaps so they really cover-up when necessary-wonderful for the pool and/or the beach-such a simple yet wonderful idea for modest people.

  50. Elva Roberts says:

    Sleepy Owl products must be excellent products when you purchased them for your baby and are still using them for the family. That is a ringing endorsement.+

  51. Elva Roberts says:

    Kidspot features Unique gifts for children with a free personalized name on them. Isn’t this a wonderful gift for any child? I would think so because I think children love to see their name on their toys and Possessions.

  52. dixie says:

    So many good websites to choose from!

  53. Elva Roberts says:

    Posterjack is a Company that helps you to keep special moments frozen in time forever with their special posters. This is a wonderful thing to do for people.

  54. Elva Roberts says:

    ‘The Book with No Pictures’ seems to be an interesting and delightful book for young children. It has a curious name for starters. Just gets you interested at once.

  55. Elva Roberts says:

    Mommies First is a wonderful company that sends new mommies a box each month for the low price of $30. This new company includes items, as I understand it, for both Mom and Baby. This would be a relatively inexpensive gift to give to a young mother for a few months from a family member or special friend.

  56. elizamatt says:

    I do like the sound of the Sleepy Owl, natural skincare products for baby. These sound really nice ๐Ÿ™‚

  57. ElaineB2 says:

    I think that the Peapodmat is a great development in water proof pads.
