Take your cue from the animals: spring is the best time to have a baby. Signs of new life are everywhere: the grass is green again, flowers are starting to bloom, birds are starting to chirp. For those giving birth at this time of the year, I'm loving these Baby Egg Nests by The Baby Bunch. I did a review and giveaway for The Baby Bunch a couple of months ago, and like the last gift item they sent me (a Baby Bunch Bouquet), the originality and creativity of the Baby Egg Nests have blown me away.
The Baby Bunch sells baby gifts that are both practical and beautiful: soft, 100% cotton baby clothes arranged to look like a bunch of flowers or cupcakes or crayons or eggs. There are also organic cotton gift packages and gift packages for moms.
Here's how Baby Bunch describes their Baby Egg Nests:
Go green and help baby leave a tiny footprint with this clever organic baby sock bouquet. Each Baby Egg Nest contains three pairs of dusty pink 100% organic cotton baby socks cleverly rolled to look like eggs –so precious for baby, and a handcrafted lavender scented bird sachet - perfect for the new mom. The organic cotton socks are sized to fit infants 0-6 months or up to 16 lbs. The three pairs of sock “eggs” and the mother bird sachet arrive nestled in a natural nest - a unique spin on baby sock bouquets. Give a Baby Egg Nest and hatch compliments and thanks.
These Baby Bunch Egg Nests are adorable! Baby Bunch gets a perfect score for beautiful and creative presentation, guaranteed to elicit lots of, "Awwwww... how cute!" comments at baby showers. I received two egg nests, one with pink socks and one with blue socks. Each gift set came wrapped in cellophane, with a cute brown ribbon, dotted in either pink or blue, and a gift tag that looks just like the bird sachet inside. The nest is made of twigs sprayed with gold paint; it makes the perfect Easter centerpiece when you put a couple of dyed Easter eggs inside it.
The socks are extremely soft (they're made of organic cotton) , and they're actually large enough for babies to wear longer than a month! . I also think the sweet-smelling bird sachet is a nice touch, because it shows you're thinking of the new mother as well as the new baby. And at $19, it doesn't cost a fortune: you get a beautifully packaged gift set for a reasonable price!
I can't think of anything I'd change about this sweet little present.
The Bottom Line
Baby Bunch's Baby Egg Nests are the perfect present for Easter or spring babies -- but whichever Baby Bunch item you choose, the exquisite, unique packaging and practical items inside guarantee you'll be giving a standout baby shower present!
