2011 Holiday Gift Guide – Baby & Toddler Suggestions

(Be sure to check out all the other great Gift Guide items and giveaways here.

If you wrote “adorable shirts” this year on your shopping list for babies and toddlers you’re going to be able to cross off a name or two. Puppy & Bean was started as a way to help caregivers remember the humor that comes with the job – humor that can sometimes be lost in the daily challenges of parenting or care-giving.  The shirts are a fun way to embrace the moments that show us what complex little beings toddlers can be, and the ways they like to demonstrate it.

I had the pleasure of meeting Laurel at the ABC Kids Expo this year and she is just as sweet as her clothing line!  If you’d like to “meet” her, too, watch the short video below.

The toddler shirts are 100% preshrunk combed ringspun cotton and the onesies and youth shirts are 100% organic combed ringspun cotton.  They also carry a few other branded items, like tote bags, water bottles, mugs, and a signature shirt for women and men.  I love a number of their designs, but the “Catch Me”, “love @ first sight” and “Silly Bean” are a few of my favorite.  We received an adorable Snuggly Bean shirt which fits Baby C.’s personality perfectly.  I love how soft the shirts are and how well they fit.

Puppy & Bean Shirts and Onesies

I’m not the only one who loves Puppy & Bean.  Jewel had her baby shower sponsored by Puppy & Bean (the “love @ first sight” shirt above was designed especially for Jewel’s boy Kase).  A number of other celebrities (Rachel Zoe, Nicole Sullivan) also love them.  Google also just profiled them as a successful small business.

You can stay up-to-date with Puppy & Bean by liking them on Facebook and following them on Twitter

Where to Buy:

Visit Puppy & Bean and shop their online store.  Onesies are $24 and toddler shirts are $20.

Do you prefer tees or onesies for your little one?

I received a shirt in order to facilitate my review. No other compensation was received and all opinions are 100% mine and my family’s.
