Giraffe Obsessions

We had dinner with JD's college roommate and his wife tonight. They are expecting their first baby - a little boy due in June! We had a wonderful dinner and Trey was an absolute angel! We all just had the best time!

When they saw Sophie they mentioned how much they both love giraffes because they are both tall and thin. This got JD and I thinking that we will order them a bunch of great baby things with a giraffe theme.

Here are some ideas that we came up with (besides Sophie, she is obviously first on the list):

I love this personalized Ceramic plate from Pottery Barn Kids.

I think these giraffe note cards would be such a sweet and unexpected gift - from Minted.

I literally melted when I saw this sweet little hat on Etsy

I am obsessed with all of the Cordy Jellycat animals and this giraffe is no exception. These are by far my favorite stuffed animals!
And I had bought this Wubbanub for Trey (along with the puppy dog one) and while Trey never took a paci - if he had liked them I'm sure he would have loved these!

I had such a hard time finding a Baby Book for Trey, I really like everything Pearhead makes and I think this book would be a great present as well!

What is your favorite gift for parents-to-be?
Have you seen any cute giraffes anywhere lately?

I’m glad you had a nice dinner with friends! Ever since you posted about Sophie, I’ve seen it everywhere. That little giraffe is a big hit.

I love that precious hat from Etsy and also the ceramic plate from Pottery Barn Kids.

I haven’t seen any cute giraffes, but I’ll be on the lookout. I always think that handmade and personalized gifts make the best gifts for new parents.
