The Road Block to Sentimentality

Seems like a baby boom is happening in my office. Smart, energetic women are waddling around doing a slamin' job with their work all while creating a human life. Women are incredible, aren't we? Anyway, one baby after another has been born, and there isn't enough time in my busy life to knit handmade gifts for all of them, as much as I would love to.

Luckily, there's The Little Things boutique. They just introduced the perfect new baby gift - a personalized soft block called the Buddy Block. Check out the image of the one created with Olivia's newborn picture and one-year birthday picture - how sweet is that? 

Each Buddy Block is custom made. Upon ordering, send a JPEG of the image you'd like printed on fabric and any specifications on colors. The Little Things boutique then makes your block out of complementary fabrics - two sides with a sweet, Laura Ashley-esq print and two sides with a soft, textured fabric. Each block is stuffed soft fiberfill and a rattle can be inserted at no additional charge. 

Dreamed up by one of CMM's favorite etsy store owners, the Buddy Block makes a great gift for new parents, grandparents, military families with deployed moms or dads, and an interactive gift to for toddlers to learn family members' faces. The Buddy Block retails for $20 and can be bought here

While browsing, be sure to check out The Little Things other great products - I love their baby bibs and boutique rattle ball toys
