A New Baby

As many of you know, for the last nine months we have anxiously been awaiting a new addition to our Picket Fence family.  Today we are pleased to announce that he has finally arrived!  In honor of little Camden's arrival, we thought we'd feature some of our favorite baby products.  Some are new lines we recently discovered, some are tried-and-true favorites, but they all make great gifts for mom and baby.

Chewbeads are one of the hottest baby gifts on the market.  This fashionable teething jewelry is made from 100% silicone (similar to pacifiers) and is soft on baby's gums.  Available in necklaces and bracelets, they make the perfect accessory for moms who love wearing jewelry but don't want their little ones pulling or chewing on delicate metal chains.  They also recently introduced teething rings specifically for baby.  We love pairing a teether with a necklace for a gift both mom and baby can enjoy!

We couldn't resist when we stumbled across these stuffed animals.  Besides being soft and cuddly, these little guys come bearing gifts.  The croc and octopus are carrying four pairs of socks, while the turtle is topped with a knit hat making them two gifts in one!

Every baby needs a soft blanket and these definitely fit the bill.  Whether you choose the large crib blanket or the smaller taggie square, you're sure to give a gift baby will love.  The large blankets are great for tummy time or covering baby on walks in the stroller, while the taggies are small enough for baby to hold onto and are surrounded with silky tags to promote tactile development.  As an added bonus, they are all handmade in California.

We've had many requests for organic baby items, so we were thrilled to discover these organic farm buddies.  They are all made with organic cotton and even contain a natural corn fiber filling.  Each character is available as a rattle, blankie or stuffed toy.

Of course no list of baby gifts would be complete without Jellycat.  From stuffed animals to cloth and board books, Jellycat products are among our most popular baby items.  Pair one of the many stuffed animals with a corresponding book for an easy gift.

This is just a fraction of what our baby corner holds.  Next time you're in the market for a baby gift, we hope you'll stop by and check it out.  And of course we can't resist sharing a shot of our newest arrival -
