April showers bring May flowers, so the story goes, and we've been happy to see a little rainfall already this month. But April tends to bring with it showers of a different kind, too; springtime always sends us ramping up for a slew of baby showers. Which brings us to two great Etsy finds that make lovely gifts for moms-to-be and their bundles of love.
Ohdeedoh spotlighted Dooce.com and the makeover of her daughter's bedroom; recently on her site, she mentioned the organic hippo teether from Etsy seller Little Alouette. Since that mention, the shop's orders are backed up for a couple of weeks--but the handmade products are so beautiful and sustainably produced, and we think they'd be a wonderful gift that's worth the wait. They have different shapes to check out; the butterfly is pictured above.
To complement that gift, we'd bundle up a few of these upcycled bibs from Etsy seller Allie Craft. They're made from vintage fabrics and backed with bamboo and organic cotton blend. Pictured: Mod Flower Bib and the Classic Car Bib.
