Avoid the Obvious When Giving a New Baby Gift

When someone you care about is expecting or just brought a baby home, your first instinct, after congratulations and wanting to see their precious little bundle is going to be, “What gift can I give that will be different from all their other friends’ gifts?”

It’s absolutely legitimate and thoughtful to consider something they’re definitely going to need, like going in with other friends to buy a car seat or stroller. But, we’re here to tell you that unless the parents (or parents-to-be) are really financially challenged, they’re going to want to choose their own car seat, stroller, crib or better mobile décor. You could then buy a bunch of different sized diapers – but you don’t know if they’ll want to use cloth or paper. You might consider a diaper washing service. However, you just don’t know what their plans are.

When you’re looking for baby gifts (and who wants to give used or old gifts, anyway?), you want that practicality but also a lot of cuteness and better way to present something that will visually be impressive. You can shop online for some beautiful choices of new baby gifts.

In addition to the special and unique nature of beautifully presented box of baby gifts, you may want to supplement it with something very unusual. If you are particularly close to a family with a new baby, you’re likely going to want to gift them before the baby is born, likely at a baby shower (and for family members, you may even want to give them “a little something” when they share their big news). You’re also going to want to bring something when the baby arrives to congratulate the family. And, finally, if you’re this close to the parents, you may be invited to a christening or bris – and all these take place before the baby’s first birthday!

Here are some unique gifts:


While wood building blocks are a classic dating back generations, today building blocks are not only available in the traditional letters of the alphabet or barnyard animals. We’ve seen blocks in foreign languages (including, for example, in Spanish, Mandarin, Sign Language [we’ve seen them in ASL] and Hebrew). There are also building blocks with nursery rhyme quotes on them – you can read to your baby as you play. There are also building blocks featuring the 118 elements of the periodic table – and before you dismiss this as too “Tiger Mom” or “so Millennial,” they’re actually a great way to introduce the basics of chemistry. You may have a budding scientist who’ll take to the very brightly coloured blocks printed in non-toxic paint like a baby Pasteur.


In addition to baby-sized hand-knit version of trendy adult caps (think pink “kitty ears”), there are lots of fun items available. If you have someone you know well who also knits well, you can ask them to make you, for example, booties in the shape of and with the design of footballs, or with the earmarks of ballet slippers. Additionally, a fun way to swaddle a baby and hop on a trend is to buy or have one made: a mermaid or merman tail! Paired with a simple white onesie or “T,” it’s an adorable look.


One thing just about every parent is going to do with their baby is to read to them, before naps, and likely every single bedtime. Babies and toddler will develop favourites, and if you have a children’s author you particularly like or whose message resonates with you, consider getting a matching set (they are easy to help decorate a room and don’t look cluttered) of the hard cardboard baby books. Authors beloved by parents and children and who write positive empowering messages include: Margaret Wise Brown, Eric Carle, Dr. Seuss, Baby Einstein, Julia Donaldson and Axel Scheffler, Peter Rabbit, Winnie the Pooh, and of course, Sandra Boynton.
These are some unexpected baby gift ideas you may have never thought of. Stay unique by giving parents-to-be with these gifts.


Portable Loooqs Universal Smartphone LED Flash Light for Awesome Selfies

Let’s all admit it, the “selfie” fever has taken a bite on us whether we want to acknowledge it or not. I am not one to pose endlessly for selfies but I do engage in taking nice selfies to post in my social accounts, especially for my travel blog and channels. Of course, for my family and friends to be updated with what’s the latest happening in my life and how I look like currently.

I am not very good at selfie. I don’t take long thoughts on which pose is best or what to post amongst the many pictures I have taken just to look good. However, I am very particular with lighting and exposure since I usually post my selfies in my blogs and social channels that are related to my blogs.  So, the Loooqs Universal Smartphone LED Flash Light from MobileFun.com is something I am keen to have and take along on my travels.

Loooqs Universal Smartphone LED Flash Light is very compact, as in tiny enough to fit even your vest pocket. I can actually fit it in my small beauty pouch to carry with me everywhere I go. It is very lightweight too. I think my pressed powder is heavier than this cute flashlight for selfies.

This portable (and very cute!) LED flashlight is perfect for those precious selfies you need to have and post. It gives off right illumination to improve photos that are taken in darker environment. I like this gadget a lot because it is also easy to operate. It has a small switch to power on and off just by flicking it. It can also be charged using the USB cable that goes with the LED flashlight. Since it is a very tiny gadget which utilizes small power, it does not feed off power form your laptop or any source of charge.

(The four small LED lights are also perfect when illuminating a room!)



I know, most smartphones now have built in flash that can also be used to illuminate while taking photos. However, it can drain much of your phones battery too and this Loooqs Univeral Smartphone LED Flash Light does not eat much power. I also noticed that when I am taking a selfie using the front camera of my iPhone, the photo is a bit grainy even when there is suitable light around. Imagine a grainer snap with a darker surrounding. So, this LED flashlight really helps in improving the quality of my selfies.

This LED flashlight is usable to both iOS and Android phones. It has an universal jack that can fit the earphone socket.

Will I use this frequently? You bet! I know that this small and portable LED flashlight will be perfect for my travels as well especially when taking nice selfies in beautiful places even at dusk.

You can buy the Loooqs Univeral Smartphone LED Flash Light  at www.MobileFun.com.

Winter Vests

The cool breeze is blowing in this part of the world. Winter is fast approaching. Although the previous winter season was not as cold as it used to be many years ago, it is still good to have winter jackets in case you need to do a camping or an early morning jog near the beach.

A good wear for this winter season activities is the warm vest like the patagonia vest womens’ style. This is a great warm clothing to wear and when the sun is up and the temperature rises a bit, it can easily be removed leaving you with your long-sleeved casual wear which is ok for the weather.
