think pink (and blue and green and purple and yellow...)

so it seems like everywhere i go, i'm surrounded by babies these days. perhaps it's my age and the fact that now that most of my friends are married, that's what's next. or you could go with my mother-in-law's theory, that the universe is telling me something. and then she yells "THINK PINK."

subtle.

well, we still have a couple years before that stage, but while i have babies on the brain, i wanted to share one of my all-time favorite baby gifts -- trumpette baby socks (they make toddler ones too, but to me, they're a spot-on baby gift). they come six to a perfect little gift-box package and come in several styles. every once in a while i find a store that carries these, but i find it's most reliable to just order from the company directly through their website.

here are my favorites...

maryjanes - black with all white, all pink (new), or assorted pastel or bright "socks" and brown (new)...


jonny's and jenny's...



t-straps...

argyles...

ballerinas...

cowboy and cowgirl boots...


and skaters, among many other styles.
these are all timeless, though i do love how they keep up with trends, and at under $30 a box, these are reasonable yet work as a stand-alone gift because of the cuteness factor and the presentation. in a situation where you want to give a slightly larger gift, i would start with a box of these in whatever color/style you prefer, and then add other pieces that match (a dress or other outfit, etc).

i just love these because i feel like they're a good way to give an affordable, useful and memorable welcome gift to the newest little person you know, regardless of what color their future grandmother chants.

what are some of your favorite baby gifts to give (or receive)?

These are absolutely adorable! I've seen socks like the mary janes before, but never the other ones.
