Animal Nap Mats From Purple Pumpkin Gifts

When your little one is in preschool, he or she may find everything they could want: activities, art, imaginative play, new friends, and more. However, one thing that can be tricky for toddlers at preschool is naptime, which is often their first place to nap outside of their familiar crib at home. Luckily, you can help your little one with the transition by choosing a high-quality, cute and cuddly animal nap mat.

Preschools and daycares often provide foam mats, but these can be uncomfortable and are shared among the other children. We all want our kids to be comfortable and safe, which is why many parents prefer to supply their tot with their own trusted nap mat. And because your child will likely be using it for 5 days a week for the next couple of years, you’ll want something that will hold up through countless naps and washes. But these fun and cuddly mats aren’t just for daycare – they’re ideal for tummy time for the younger ones, and make a cute rug for the nursery!

At our boutique full of both cute and practical baby gifts in Philadelphia, we offer a wide variety of fun and comfortable animal nap mats. They’re a stuffed animal and soft rug or blanket combined in one! From elephants to butterflies to puppies, we’re sure to have a comfortable, safe and fun animal nap mat your tot will love.

Getting Organized for the New Baby – Pt. 2

framed birth announcementYour empty nest is about to become full, so there’s not much time left for prepping and organization! after your little one arrives.
Make sure to complete these to-do’s before life becomes more hectic after your little one arrives.

Spring Clean: Many of us postpone our spring cleaning, but now’s the time to tackle it (for the sake of you and your baby’s health and safety). Dust behind furniture, clean the floors, and vacuum under the couch and tables, etc. Remember to stay as close to the floor as possible, as this is where your baby will be! Now is also a great time to ditch clutter such as magazines, old clothes and unwanted gifts from the holidays. Some of these tasks can be exhausting, so ask your partner or friends for help.

Do Laundry: Washing everything that doesn’t make it to your weekly loads, such as throw rugs, towels, and pillow shams. Make sure to also stock up on detergent and stain remover, because you’re soon to be washing lots of onesies, pajamas and baby blankets.

Order Birth Announcements: You can order these online so they’re ready as soon as you know your baby’s final stats. Address the envelopes now so they’re ready to be mailed, and don’t forget a framed birth announcement for hanging in the nursery!

Make the Who-to-Call List: It’s best to set this list up now so your partner knows who to inform of your new arrival. You can even set up a call chain (i.e., enlist three people who will each call another three people).

Getting Organized for the New Baby – Pt. 1

hanging diaper stacker
“Nesting” is a soon-to-be parent’s instinct to prepare their “empty nest” to become full and busy; and with this generally comes organization, cleanliness and preparation. After all, you’ll need to make plenty of room for that new bundle of joy and all his/her necessities! If you’ve been hit with the nesting instinct, its best to make the most of it now before life becomes more hectic after the baby arrives.

Stock Up on Essentials: Although they’re tiny, babies go through endless diapers and other essentials. Load up on baby soap, bottles, bibs, baby powder, etc. Basically, pick up everything you won’t want to run out of during a busy day.

Load Up the Pantry: You likely won’t have much time for grocery shopping when the baby comes, so it’s best to stock up now on non-perishables. Load up on healthy, convenient foods such as trail mix, crackers, brown rice, healthy sauces and broths, etc. Make a space for baby food, cereal, formula, spoons, and bowls.


Prepare the Nursery: Keep the necessities you know you’ll need close at hand. This way, you can avoid having a naked, messy baby on the changing table when the clean diapers and wipes are across the room. We suggest investing in a handy hanging diaper stacker. Now’s also a great time to organize the closet and drawers.

The Rise of Personalized Gifts

personalized baby blanket
Whether it’s Christmas, a baby shower or a birthday, a personalized gift is a great way to show a new or expecting mom just how truly special she is. Personalized gifts from Purple Pumpkin are a perfect way to stand out in a crowd, and they can make an average present into something meaningful that is cherished forever. There is much truth to the saying ‘It’s the thought that counts”!

When a gift for a new mom or baby has been custom-made or personalized, there’s no doubt it will become a keepsake. Once the baby shower or baby’s first birthday party has ended, Mom will go home and sort through her large pile of new gifts. She will likely find items she already has plenty of, duplicate gifts, or gifts that don’t match her or her baby’s needs. It’s likely they will be returned to the store, be donated or even collect dust. However, a precious gift such as a personalized baby blanket or a personalized toy chest possesses more meaning, as it was tailored specifically for her.

The most important aspect about the art of gift-giving is showing that you know the recipient really well, and that you care about them. Practicality of the gift is important to consider as well, but it’s amazing what a little bit of customization can do to make a special day or event even more memorable.
