Unique Eco Friendly Baby Shower Gifts

 

Eco Friendly Baby Gifts from Petal & Post

Thank you to Petal & Post for sponsoring this blog post.

Those tiny toes, those extra wide eyes, those special happy baby sounds…..I’m always so excited when a new baby arrives in the life of someone I know. Holding a newborn is one of my favorite things ever! Plus it’s an excuse to go shopping for that perfect baby gift. I always want my gifts to be unique – something that you won’t find on the baby registry at Babies R Us.

Petal & Post has a lovely assortment of stylish baby gifts that are completely safe for babies and good for the planet too.  I’ve highlighted a few of my favorites here, but be sure to browse around the baby section for more. And remember – as part of my partnership with Petal & Post, Mindful Momma readers get 15% off using code MINDFULmomma15-summer at checkout (good through 9/30/15).
