I received various samples and products for inclusion in this gift guide. All opinions are my own.
How do you celebrate Valentine’s Day at your house? At our house we always share the love! I love to get my kids a couple of little gifts to celebrate how lucky I am to have them in my life! Here is a little list of my favorite items this holiday season.
Nothing’s cuter on a baby then a cloth diaper themed for the holidays! Rock-a-Bums offers their diapers in bold red, clean white, and black with red snaps, all of which are perfect for Valentine’s Day! They have a unique 5-in-1 design where you can use this clot diaper as an AIO, AI2, Pocket, Hybrid insert, or as a shell. If you don’t know what that last line means, no worries – it means you can put the diaper together however you want and it’s easy to use. This diaper fits great on my little guy and I love the soft inserts that are topped with bamboo. It gives us a really great fit that is snug and secure to avoid any leaks. Best of all is that the rise can be adjusted so we will be able to get lots of use out of this diaper while my son grows. Rock-a-Bums cloth diapers are $16.95 and include two washable inserts.

Is your little girl a shoe fanatic? Mine is! You have to check out Bitsy Blossom handmade soft soled shoes for babies and toddlers. These shoes are to die for! You will swoon when you see their amazing selection! I was hesitant at first, because my little girl is so active, to go with a soft soled shoe but these are made with soling material that is waterproof, durable, abrasion resistant, slip resistant, and resistant to hot and cold surfaces. It is pretty heavy duty stuff. Wether you are looking for flats, mary janes, or even boots, Bitsy Blossom has the perfect pair for you. Their shoes range in price from $36-54 depending on which pair you choose. I was totally smitten the first time I saw my little girls first pair and will be grabbing her some more from their shop soon.
