There is nothing like the joy and excitement you feel when you find out your friends or family members are expecting. Then, as quick as you find out the panic starts to set in. How do I find the perfect baby shower gift? If you need to find those one of a kind baby gifts check out our cute yet functional selection of handmade baby bibs. Baby bibs are one of the most important newborn essential items. They protect baby's skin and clothing from drool, spit-up, as well as those messy foods. Depending on the baby a family can run through 7 bibs for the week or 7 bibs in a day if they have a heavy drooler. So, being prepared is always essential and cuts down on a new parent’s laundry time.

Do you have an animal that you’re just obsessed with? Elephant, fox, owl, cat or dog we all have that one special animal that we just can’t get enough of. For me, it’s dogs even though I’m allergic to them. I still have a hard time trying to not pet a playful pooch I see coming down the street. While I may be obsessed with dogs, our 144 Collection model Jayme has a thing for rabbits. Her love for things cute, fluffy and long eared began innocently enough with a rabbit flash drive she purchased from Amazon. It continued to the point where she now owns a rabbit aptly named Benjen. While she continues to collect accessories, I think our rabbit coin purse would be the perfect accessory to add to her collection.

A baby bib is a garment worn by newborns or toddlers to protect their delicate skin and clothes from food, spit-up and drool. Every baby at some point will need to wear a bib. It could start right after they are born or later when parents begin weaning their baby. At some point, we all realize the universal truth that babies are not just cute but very messy. This is where a good durable baby bib comes in. A good bib should be absorbent, fit comfortably on your baby (not tight around the neck) and be able to withstand constant washing.

Did you know that almost fifty percent of babies’ spit-up regularly? Though this form of reflux is quite normal for infants, not having the proper garments can be devastating for both mo...
