Uniqe Baby Gifts and Baby Shower Favors Coming Attractions

Happy New Year! I hope everyone had a wonderful holiday season. I am looking forward to an exciting year here at Alexander's Playroom. There will be quite a few new unique baby gifts and baby shower favors that will be added to the site over the next few weeks. I have another giveaway planned for February also, so make sure you stop by regularly.

I'm really excited about these adorable cloth diapers from Trend Lab Baby. What I love about these cloth diapers is they are gender specific with 3 liner options providing protection where it's needed most - blue up front for boys, pink in the middle for girls, or the white liner with equal padding for either a boy or girl. The outer cover is waterproof which keeps wetness in and has a soft fleece lining that keeps moisture away from baby.

The Ultimate Diaper Bag, also from Trend Lab, is a hobo style diaper bag that is great for everyday use. It's not too girly looking, so even a dad won't mind carrying it! This spacious tote bag has built-in, insulated bottle pockets on either side to keep bottles and snacks hot or cold, an adjustable strap makes it easy to carry or hang across stroller handles, three magnetic pockets on the exterior of bag can be opened with one hand making it convenient when holding a baby, and durable nylon fabric easily wipes clean. It also includes a changing pad and transparent dirty duds zippered pouch that can be clipped onto the bag.

The Night Owl 5 Piece Baby Gift Set is too adorable! This enchanting owl-themed gift set includes a large, plush owl rattle, plush "crinkle" tree toy, canvas door hanger, and a matching owl applique satin trimmed lovie blanket embroidered with "Hoot! Hoot!" in a keepsake wicker basket with canvas lining. Plus you can get the door hanger personalized with baby's name.

If you are planning a baby shower, there are going to be a ton of new favors added over the next few weeks. Here a just a few of my favorites:
