Celeb Babies We Can’t Wait to Meet in 2015 – Part 2

For those celebrities who have daughters and are expecting another child, we thought it would be fun to select some big sister shirts and onesies we think would make really thoughtful baby shower gifts (here). And for expecting celebs with sons, these are the big brother shirts and onesies we think would be ideal gifts.

Celebs2_Personalized_Tees1

Bets are on whether or not Prince George will get a little sister or a little brother, as well as what the new royal’s name will be. We’re still partial to Diana if it’s a girl! (Shown: Modern Fun Big Brother T shirt and matching little brother onesie; Charming Castle little sister onesie)

Celebs2_Personalized_Tees

Ashlee Simpson will be giving Bronx Mowgli a sibling this year and since both kids come from musical backgrounds, we think the Rock On Big Brother T shirt and coordinating onesie would be ideal.

Celebs2_Personalized_Tees3

Columbian born Shakira and her Spanish husband will be welcoming another baby soon and we think these world travelers would appreciate the multilingual Around the World Big Brother T shirt for Milan and matching onesie for his soon-to-be sibling.

Celebs2_Personalized_Tees4

Molly Sims recently revealed she’s giving her son Brooks a baby sister so we think the former model would love the stylish Bold & Bright Big Brother T shirt and matching little sister onesie for her wee ones.

Celebs2_Personalized_Tees5

Tamera Mowry used Twitter to announce she’d be giving her son Aden a sibling (or possibly two since mama is a twin herself?). As a comedic actress, we think she’d appreciate the whimsical nature of the Playful Doodles Big Brother T shirt and matching onesie for a little brother or sister.

Are these the personalized onesies and big brother shirts you’d choose for these celeb babies or do you think another design would be better? Let us know your thoughts!

DIY Valentine’s Day Felt Envelopes + Free Card Download

We’ve got a great Valentine’s project to work on this weekend with the kids and have some DIY fun! Our amazing Creative Director Hillary is at it again! In addition to creating personalized growth chartsbig sister shirtsbig brother shirts, and 1st birthday shirts for our line of personalized baby gifts, she’s come up with this fabulous — and free — DIY Valentine’s Day Felt Envelopes that includes some super adorable cards to print and give to friends.

Val_Felt_Envelopes1 Val_Felt_Envelopes2 Val_Felt_Envelopes3

You’ll Need:

• 9″ x 12″ felt sheets
• scissors
• thread or glue (you don’t need to sew these envelopes, you could use a fabric glue)
• 8.5″ x 11″ paper (for printing the fun, free and fabulous Valentine cards)

 

Steps:

1- Download the 2 page PDF of our adorable Valentine cards here. Included is a colorful version and a Valentine’s color themed version.
2- Our felt sheets are 9″ x 12″. Cut the felt sheet so you have 2 rectangles 9″ x 4.5″. Then you will have a little leftover piece that you can use for heart “stamps”.
3- Adhere one of your hearts to the upper right corner of one of your 9″ x 4.5″ rectangles. Leave about 2″ at the top for the flap of your envelope.
4- Fold your rectangle so you have the flap and stitch up the sides. Then stitch a button on & cut a hole for the button to go through.
5- Print and cut the Valentine cards.
6- Use the cards and envelopes over and over again for endless hours of play.

We hope you enjoy this project! Thank you again Hillary for all that you do to make the best personalized baby gifts and fun freebies for our customers! And don’t forget to share your pics with us on Instagram #petitelemon. Cheers!

Celeb Babies We Can’t Wait to Meet in 2015 – Part 1

We spend so much of our time designing personalized baby gifts so we’re always super excited when we hear someone is expecting a baby. And it’s no different when it comes to celebrities. Even if we don’t know them personally, we still look forward to hearing how they announce their pregnancies, what they name their children, etc. In 2015, there are quite a few of our favorite celebrities that are expecting their first children, as well as some who are adding to their brood.

So far we haven’t received any invitations, but if we were invited to baby showers for Jessica Biel, Carrie Underwood, or Zooey Deschanel of course we’d love to gift them with our personalized baby gifts. And for those expecting their second (or third), we would gift personalized onesies with big sister shirts and big brother shirts, because it’s always thoughtful to gift a sibling-to-be too.

Here are the big sister shirts and onesies we’d choose for these celebs.

Celebs1_Personalized_Tees5

Celebs1_Personalized_Tees1

Emily Maynard’s daughter Ricki wore her Colorful Name tee when she was on ABC’s The Bachelorette, so we’d love to see her in the Color It Up big sister tshirt and have her new little in the coordinating onesie.

Celebs1_Personalized_Tees2

We gifted Jennifer Love Hewitt’s daughter Autumn the Happy Hearts onesie, so we’d give JLove’s new little one the same onesie to have matching keepsakes and give Autumn the Taped Up big sister tshirt.

Celebs1_Personalized_Tees3

Alec and Hilaria Baldwin announced their second pregnancy with an Instagram shot of them on the beach, then shared a picture of a pair of little boy shoes next to a pair of each of their own as a gender reveal. The Whale of Fun big sister tshirt and coordinating little brother onesie would be a sweet reminder of the ocean side pregnancy announcement.

Celebs1_Personalized_Tees4

Tiffani Thiessen also recently revealed she’ll be giving daughter Harper a sibling this year. Our gorgeous new Delightful Lettering Big Sister Tshirt and matching little sibling onesie would make a sweet gift pick.

Stay tuned for our choice of personalized baby gifts for celebs that already have a boy and are expecting baby number two.

Petite Lemon in Real Life: Brock’s 1st Birthday Party

For the first month of the year, it only makes sense to celebrate another first, so our newest Petite Lemon in Real Life post is another 1st birthday party. And we’re so thrilled that Brock’s mama chose to customize one of our 1st birthday shirts to make it as special as her boy’s big day. These magical moments are exactly why we design personalized baby gifts!

Screen Shot 2015-01-15 at 9.14.48 AM

What did you think about having a babe born on NYE?  It was amazing, we felt like the whole world was celebrating with us!

What were your favorite things about Brock’s 1st birthday party?  Seeing him walk around and play with the other kids.  I couldn’t believe how grown up he is!

What do you enjoy most about having a 1 year old, thus far?  He is the sweetest kid and I love that he is still so cuddly!

What are Brock’s biggest changes in the past few months? He climbs up on to everything!  He’s like a little mountain goat right now.

Tell us some of your favorite things about having two little ones? It’s fun to see them becoming friends and learning from each other.

Some challenges about having two close together? Weaning binkies and bottles for one but not the other.  Making it through one stage of teething, just in time to start it all up again.

What are you favorite Petite Lemon products?  The shirts are my favorite, although the kids would choose the growth charts….they love them in their rooms.

Thanks so much for sharing Brock’s party details with us, we’re so happy one of our 1st birthday shirts were a part of this momentous occasion in your lives.

P.S. If you have any of our personalized baby gifts, whether it’s big sister shirts or big brother shirts you’ve bought to get your little one excited to meet their new sibling, you’ve welcomed a baby with one of our personalized onesies, celebrated baby’s big day in one of our 1st Birthday shirts, or you’ve used our personalized growth charts to mark milestones in your child’s life, we want to hear about it! Please email us at buzz (at) petitelemon (dot) com.

Project Nursery’s Most Viewed Nurseries of 2014

We love Project Nursery, they always have the most adorable nursery designs to ooohh and ahhhh over, and we’re not alone in our adoration. Hundreds of thousands of parents go there for inspiration and each year Project Nursery shares their most viewed nurseries which are the cream of the crop. We chose a few of the most popular in 2014, then picked one of our personalized growth charts that we think would make a great addition to each room’s design.

Nursery_Personalized_Growth_Charts1

The Sprinkled Flowers personalized growth chart would make a nice addition to this warm and pretty nursery with coral, pink, and metallic accents.

Nursery_Personalized_Growth_Charts2

The Colorful Words personalized growth chart has the perfect pops of color to accent this ultra-stylish purple, teal, and pink nursery.

Nursery_Personalized_Growth_Charts3

Both the Soft Pink Preppy Pennant and the Gray Perfect Pennant personalized growth charts would go well in this elegant pink and gray nursery.

Nursery_Personalized_Growth_Charts4

The Woodland Fun personalized growth chart would nicely accent this cozy, sweet coral and white nursery.

Which of these popular nursery designs is your favorite? Did we choose your favorite personalized growth chart to go with it or would have chosen another design?

Personalized Baby Gifts:  Book & Onesie Gift Sets

Attending any baby showers soon and looking for ideal personalized baby gifts? We’ve got a great idea – pair personalized onesies with a sweet storybook. Last year we paired some 1st birthday shirts with Dr. Seuss books (here), as well as sets of a classic book with a big sister tshirt (here) and big brother t shirt (here), and this time we chose a couple of the top children’s books Parents Magazine named for 2014 to coordinate with personalized onesies.

Books_Personalized_Onesies1a

If you’ve seen I Can Do It Myself or Now I Am Big by Sara Gillingham, you won’t be surprised at how adorable Snuggle the Baby is. Wrap it up with a Happy Hearts onesie and you’ve got a gift the new parents will surely love.

Books_Personalized_Onesies2a

Babies will continue to enjoy The Mitten: A Classic Pop-Up Folktale, by Jessica Southwick, Pippa Cornick, and Yevgeniya Yeretskaya, even after they outgrow their Sweet Fox onesie, but both will become treasured keepsakes.

Books_Personalized_Onesies3a

It’s never too early to introduce numbers to wee ones with a gift set that includes a onesie with baby’s birth date, height and weight numbers, like Graphic Fun, and a counting focused book like Have You Seen My Dragon? by Steve Light.

Have you paired personalized onesies and books to create a custom gift set? If not, we hope this inspired you!
