Custom Silhouette Portraits

This is THE classiest and most original way to capture the sweetness of your child’s face. Pretty Faces on Etsy personalizes the silhouettes with your design preferences: border, background, colors, fonts, profile direction and any text you would like to include. All you have to do is send in your photos and Pretty Faces takes care of the rest.

Price: $45.00 for an 8 x 10.

The Kindle

Oh, glorious Kindle! The iPad is great and all, yes you can play games, surf the web and do a wide range of other things on Apple’s new tablet, but the one thing it doesn’t do is read like a Kindle. When reading a book on the iPad, it feels as though you are sitting in front of a computer screen, which I don’t care for personally. The Kindle reads like a newspaper and you can submerse yourself completely in the story without your eyes getting buggy. Buy this for mama and she’ll love you forever (ok she will no matter what, but you will definitely get extra brownie points, buying this baby).

Price: $189.00 from our affiliate Amazon.com

‘Keep Calm and Carry On’ Poster

Can I have one of these in every room of my house? Issued in 1939 by the British Ministry of Information as a means of keeping the British calm during World War 2, the original poster was used in times of extreme crisis. In other words, parents need this reminder, hourly.

Price: $29.51 from Keep Me Calm Gallery
