What a delightful treat to wake up to news of another royal baby. (Honeymoon baby?! #Nosy.) Why are we Americans so interested in the royal family though? I think it’s partly the externalized social order there (American society is just as stratified but not as explicit about it with titles, lineage, etc?) and partly the fairy tale of it all. A prince! A wedding! A baby! Mon dieu. (For fellow royalty admirers, consider the delicious novel The Royal We for a delightful way to pass a weekend, and be sure to follow the Instagram handle @garyjanetti for hilarious royal commentary.) Anyway, below, I shared some thoughts on gifts fit for Harry and Meghan’s prince or princess…(click images to access details or see links below!)
+Tiffany comb. An aunt gave this to mini and it is such a beautiful keepsake.
+Any of the Maileg mice toys are to die for. My mother-in-law and I swoon over the catalogs and have gone in together preemptively on a few gift sets for future celebrations with mini.
+Little Giraffe chenille blanket. We received so many blankets when mini was born, but this was our absolute favorite. It’s still the one mini sleeps with every night. (And it’s held up well in the wash!)
+Wicker doll pram. I mean…! Fairy godmother gift.
+Peep’s Paper Products baby book. The most elegant baby book I ever did see.
+De Buci Baby sleepsack. I wanted one of these badly for mini but never splurged! What an elegant and extravagant gift. I love their fabrics.
+Kissy Kissy jammies. In my opinion, the unrivaled pajama for newborns. The softest cotton, the sweetest patterns.
P.P.S. Gifts for friends.
P.P.P.S. My complete baby registry.
