5 baby shower gifts worthy of Duchess Kate and Prince William
We can’t help it. We love a good fairy tale, and, seeing as following the royal romance of Duchess Kate and Prince William is our modern version of a classic love story, we’re following the couple’s baby news, maybe a little too closely.
The latest report is that the six-month pregnant Kate is due in mid-July, Today reports, and girl and boy names are still being bandied about.
With just a few months to go, we’re feeling a case of royal baby fever coming on, so we just have to share some fab baby shower finds worthy of an infant princess or prince (but, we really want it to be a princess!). And, yes, in case you were wondering, these make great gifts for non-heirs to the throne, as well.
Noodle & Boo Bashful Bunny Gift Set: Whether born to a princess or a pauper, don’t all babies deserve a little luxury? This adorbs shower gift, $36, includes cleansing cloths, the Essential Care Kit (travel-size lotion, gentle shampoo and body wash) and a soft cuddly stuffed bunny. (Click here to get cash back and free samples.)
BabyGap fish hats: Help Mama keep that infant head warm — and totally stylin’ — in a pink blowfish knitted cap, or yellow parrotfish version, both $16.95. Tuck in a couple bath toys and a Finding Nemo DVD, and you’re bound to receive a sea of praise. (And, we’ve got coupon codes and cash back deals, too!)
Keep calm and cuddle me onesie: The WWII-era British “Keep Calm and Carry On” poster has gone viral in 2013, with parodies abounding. We would ditch the calm and go crazy if we saw Kate and William’s baby sporting this au currant onesie, $12.99, from Jonny Cotton UK on Amazon.
Personalized ice cream gift set: An ice cream-themed baby shower gift for the little half-pint? Um, yes, please. Beau Coup offers this super sweet set in brown, lime or pink (or, make that chocolate, pistachio or strawberry), that includes a pajama onesie and a sprinkle-print night cap with a “cherry” on top — packaged in an ice cream carton container, $25.42. For $5 more, you can add three letters to the cap. Can you die of cuteness?
Lion bank: True, royal babies needn’t concern themselves with silly things like saving pennies, but a piggy — or in this case — a lion bank is a classic shower gift, nonetheless. We’re smitten with this take on the standard by Jonathan Adler from Giggle, $78, that will look at home not only in the nursery, but in a kid’s room, a teen’s room — heck, we want one for our room, too.
