Sophisticated Baby Gifts {Review & Giveaway}

{This giveaway is now closed. Thanks to those who entered!}

For me, selecting just the right baby gift for a new mom or mom-to-be is sometimes as difficult as taking the SATs. I'm always torn between wanting to be practical but also not wanting to neglect the extreme cuteness of so many items out there. I always spend forever trying to find the happy median and end up wishing that there was a site that would just start selling the perfect gifts.

And all of a sudden, there is. Combine sensible with adorable and you've got Sophisticated Baby Gifts. I really don't think there is a mom out there that wouldn't absolutely love to receive one of these for their little one:


I think the Baby Einstein Play Time Wagon and the Baby Einstein Space Adventure Gift Basket are amazing! They're educational, entertaining and can you imagine the wow factor of bringing one to a baby shower? Incredible.

However, if Baby Einstein isn't quite right, maybe the mom you are purchasing for would prefer something more decorative, a keepsake that can be cherished and displayed for years to come. Perhaps as gorgeous as this:


This Little Birdie Birth Announcement isn't a drawing or a painting, it's in fact a handmade embroidered piece that comes completely finished (framed and matted) and ready to stun the lucky recipient. What a striking and remarkable gift to give or receive.

A longtime dream of successful business owner, Barbara Gile, Sophisticated Baby Gifts carries just about everything you could want when looking to purchase a gift. I love that if you prefer organic, they have that. Sibling gifts so that the older brother or sister aren't left out? They have those in a variety of styles and characters, too.

How about bringing a present for Mom instead (or along with) something for baby? Sophisticated Baby Gifts not only has pretty gold jewelry for mom, but luxurious gift baskets for mom so that she can have a little extra pampering after all of her hard work of creating and bringing a new person into the world (or anytime, really). I sure wouldn't mind having the Double Chocolate Layered Towel Cake show up at my front door!

For unique and quality baby and shower gifts, Sophisticated Baby Gifts brings together a wonderful collection of blankets, clothing, gift baskets, keepsakes and so much more. When a good friend of mine from out of state had a baby a few months ago, I fretted about finding the right things to send to her as well as having to pack them up and ship them. Next time I'll just head to Sophisticated Baby Gifts and it will all be taken care of for me!

Plus, thanks to their generosity, one person will get all the wows at their next baby shower, because...

One lucky person will win a $40 gift certificate to Sophisticated Baby Gifts!
