'Tis the season to give presents, and when you do, don't forget the littlest ones on your list! The Baby Bunch has a beautiful gift idea for new parents this winter -- the Winter Bunch, an adorable bouquet of baby clothes for 0-6 months. The Baby Bunch sent me one of these gorgeous gifts so I could see for myself how beautifully a set of baby clothes can be presented, and how practical a bunch of "flowers" can be.
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 a brief description of what you get inside the Winter Bunch:
Baby its cold outside! Keep warm with the Winter Bunch, a Classic Baby Bunch filled with snowy white garments designed to keep a baby girl or boy toasty and warm. The Winter Bunch includes one white bib, one white long sleeve one-piece, one white hat, one pair of white mitts, one white long sleeve romper suit, and two pairs of white socks, all gathered into a festive bouquet of baby clothes.
What new mom doesn't love flowers? And what new mom can't use baby clothes? With the Winter Bunch, you can give both. This gift is really perfect for any type of new mom -- or any type of gift giver. If you're the type who likes to give flowers, the Winter Bunch is perfect -- the new mom will admire it just like any beautiful bouquet, and she'll display it just as proudly, and she'll be able to use it long after any real bouquet has wilted. If you're a practical gift giver, the Winter Bunch works just as well because you're giving the new mom a set of ultra-soft cotton baby clothes, which is just what she needs -- and you're giving it with style.
As with all Baby Bunch products, I love the unique, whimsical presentation; just because a present is practical doesn't mean it has to look boring! They've packed it full, so it's lush and bursting with happiness. Or baby clothes. Well, both. And the winter-themed colors (white, deep red and green) make it even more festive:
While the idea of snowy white baby clothes is appealing -- think sweet, innocent little lambs -- the reality is that white isn't the most practical baby color choice. After one or two uses, they always seem to be permanently stained with spit, juice and milk. I think it would have been better to make the baby clothes deep red, then embellish them with white rosebuds, instead of the other way around. I think it's more likely that new moms will want to show their babies off in a deep red outfit than a stained white one!
The Bottom Line
Despite my misgivings on the practicality of white, I still think the Winter Bunch is a gorgeous, festive way to welcome a new baby. It will definitely be the standout baby shower present or new mom present this holiday season!
