baby month card giveaway!

One of our most popular products is our Baby Month cards. The idea is to photograph your baby each month with the card. Each set contains cards for months 1-12 – it's an excellent way to see your baby's growth in the first year
and you end up with a lovely sequence of photos that can be framed in a grid.

To continue our baby-themed week, we are giving away a set of Baby Month cards in your color choice: pale pink, poppy orange (not shown), pool blue or sage green. The cards retail for $18 + $7 shipping = $25. If you would like to purchase a set, email us at info@blonde-designs.com.

To enter this giveaway, please respond to this post telling us what your favorite children's gift is to give or receive.

We will announce the winner on Monday, October 26th.

While I love it when my daughter is given a new book, I really, really loving giving big receiving blankets to new parents. Not the tiny, not even worth it as a burp cloth kind, but giant squares that swaddle tightly then transition into play mats or even capes.

my favorite gift to give is when baby is a wee bit older, baby food maker with recipe book, gift card to whole foods for fresh fruits and veggies for baby, sippy cups, plates, spoons, forks, bibs, etc. i wrap it all up in a big basket :)

I liked receiving personalized gifts....so sweet. I also like giving them.....to see something with your baby's name on it, ....just makes you feel good :)

I like receiving handmade gifts - my girlfriend makes amazing dolls (little big pants) and I love knitting baby hats - they are tiny so they knit up fast and are so cozy!

I love these cards...definitely a must-do with baby #2! The miracle blanket was probably our most used and appreciated gift. I enjoy giving something from a registry...as I know it is something the expecting parents need and want.

I like giving receiving blankets that I make with crochet around the edges. My favorite gift I have received was a handmade nursing cover.

I love to give and receive anything that is homemade. A personal gift is so much for meaningful than something you can find in the store. Although, I would make an exception for these. We are due in April and I LOVE this idea!

I come from a family of readers, and therefore love to give books - my favorites from when I was little and the books my daughter has enjoyed the most. We always try to give one baby book and a few chapter books for the child to enjoy as they grow!

What a Fabulous product! I'd love to win a set for my new nephew...

My favorite baby gift to give is a baby book... sometimes it's a fancy store-bought book for record-keeping and sometimes its an amazing handmade book for scrapbooking. Hopefully it's a gift that my sweet friends and family members have enjoyed receiving and using!

Definitely books!

I love giving AND receiving children's books. Especially for the first child... they need help starting up their library.

I love giving Baby Month Cards as shower gifts. They're something every mom can use!

10.20 | Unregistered CommenterKrissy

I love giving Sophie the Giraffe as a shower gift. And books. Anything by Mo Willams.

10.20 | Unregistered CommenterCarrie

Bubble wrap :) Sheer joy for 75 cents a yard!

10.20 | Unregistered Commentermackenzie

this idea is ADORABLE. really. really.

soffie le giraffe is the best baby item ever. both my kids adored her.

my favorite baby gift is blankets... i am such a sucker for all things super soft and cuddly.

We love to receive new books. And I think the month cards are genius!

I love giving and receiving books- I don't think you can ever have enough of them in your home.

I love giving the little sleeper gowns (with the open bottom). They make late night diaper changes much quicker!

10.20 | Unregistered CommenterAngie T.

I love giving baby Red Sox hats, children's books, or something I made (smock, quilt, etc.).

The best gift I received was a pack of cloth diapers. We are using disposable because I am not that ambitious but the cloth diapers are the best burp cloths, and they are always so soft and quickly become a cuddly blankie :)

My new favorite baby gift is swaddling blankets by Aden and Anais. The are gauzy and oh-so-huge, so you can wrap baby up tight.

10.20 | Unregistered CommenterJess

I love giving handmade board books - you can get white blank board books and really personalize it for the child or baby. They're always a big hit. Like everyone else, I love getting new books. Reading the same ones over and over and over again can drive you crazy!

If I know the nursery theme, I like to make mobiles out of embroidery hoops, inspired by a kit I got once upon a time from marthabymail. I've made jungle, transportation, bugs, under the sea, and sparkly flower mobiles.

Like many others, I always give a children's book with a little handmade bib. It's great because I can always keep a stock on hand. Love these cards!
