Cue our new EXPERT GUEST BLOGGER SERIES!

That’s right: we found the best of the best and convinced them to contribute to the Makaboo blog! Looking to get some tips on planning for your new arrival? Baby won’t sleep? Seeking savvy nursery decorating advice? Those are only a handful of the topics that our experts will be covering! So be on the lookout for new articles and happy reading! (oh, and be sure to still check back in-between for more Makaboo-isms)

While you’re at it...check out what’s new to the Boo! We just added so many adorable new baby gifts and are super excited about it:

Personalized 3 Sprouts Storage Bins: Cutest. Gift. Ever.

Personalized 3 Sprouts Storage Bins Racoon & Zebra at Makaboo
Walt has received a number of raccoon inspired gifts, both from people who knew that my childhood lovie was a raccoon, and from folks who are aware of our more recent encounters with the critters. But my all-time favorite raccoon gift has to be a raccoon-adorned 3 Sprouts Storage Bin personalized with Walt's name. The little bandit just makes me smile, and almost makes me forgive his brethren for incurring 4 ER visits and $1200 in rabies-related charges on our 2010 insurance bill.

So I was SO excited when we decided to start carrying Personalized 3 Sprouts gear. Their Storage Bins are the ultimate in stylish nursery and playroom decor - they are durable, functional and adorable! How can you go wrong? And the best part is they're a gift that goes on giving - in fact, Makaboo's two packagers who are going off to college next month and have asked if they can have one for their dorm room as a parting gift. (And yes, Walt will be carting his to Yale in 2030!).

One of the most fun things about running Makaboo Personalized Gifts is that we are some of the first folks to spot trends in baby names. Here's what we're seeing so far for 2012:

Can I Buy A Vowel?
Alice, Emma, Ella, Olivia, Ethan, Elias, Eliot, Owen ... if it begins or ends with a vowel, it is hot right now. This trend started in 2010 but we're seeing it continue this year. Such great, classic names!

Boys' Names Are For Sissies! 
Jessica Simpson isn't the only new mom giving her little bundlette of joy a name traditionally considered a boys name. Parker, Emerson, Pearson, Hunter - we're sewing a lot of names that you'd think were for boys, but they're in hot pink or on a pair of our Kissy Kissy Fancy Pants! 

Old Names Are New Again
Some old classics are coming back in style: Pippa, Poppy, Esther and Hazel have all graced our sewing machines with more frequency, as have Oliver, Henry, Charlie and Jack. Just goes to show that, as with everything in life, names eventually come back in style - aren't you glad you didn't throw out those 80's neons?
