Today's topic: Baby gifts. Do you buy from the registry or go off registry?
I actually do both with close friends. Before the baby is born, I always stick to the registry for the mom's sake. After all, parents legitimately need a stroller, a pack & play, car seat and high chair and the purpose of the shower is to help the families out by getting them what they need. When the baby arrives, I like to give a little something sentimental. Something monogrammed works great. Here's a picture frame idea by Kelley Eubanks. She's stamped the baby's monogram on the bottom of the frame using PSA Essentials black ink and her PSA Archive Peel & Stick stamps. The turquoise on the painted frame and the black and white ribbon are such a great contrast. She's used a really heavy weight ribbon and sturdy frame - this is a lasting gift.
When there's no time to make something or get a gift monogrammed , there's always flowers. Gorgeous ones like these suit me more than just fine.
