Top Personalized Baby Gifts

December 31, 2012 21:53

Top 10 Personalized Baby Gifts We *love* to see the sweet and oh so creative ways our customers design personalized gifts to welcome new babies, celebrate special events, or just plain spoil the adorable little ones in your lives. Cries of "that's so cute" are heard over and over again as we sew and gift wrap our Boo''d think we'd be immune to cuteness by now but no. Here are some of my favorite creative gifts from this past year (and yes, it was hard to choose!).

Makaboo Wins Totally Awesome Award Best Baby Shower Gifts

They Grow Up So Fast

December 3, 2012 14:00

Three years ago today, late on the evening of December 3rd, 2009, we "flipped the switch" and Makaboo went live.

In one sense it feels like millenia ago; in the 1000 or so days since then, my mother beat not one but two bouts of breast cancer, my father was diagnosed with dementia, and my husband's sister bravely survived a horrific accident at the hands of a drunk driver. During the same 1000 days, we welcomed three more nieces and nephews into our extended family, and learned that we were expecting a little one ourselves. In March of 2012, I both welcomed our son Walt into the world AND closed on Makaboo's first round of outside funding.

So, it's been a dizzingly busy few years.

To the thousands of people across the country and world who have chosen Makaboo to help mark a special occasion, and to the countless little ones who snuggle up to a Boo each night, thank you so much for letting us be a little part of your lives. We hope we're around for a long, long time, and that the next three years are as thrilling as the last! turns 3!

It may be Makaboo's Birthday but we have a gift for YOU! Use code HAPPYBDAYBOO and enjoy $10 off your order of $30+ at now thru 12/31/12. Yay!
