Belle & Boys Review & {GIVEAWAY}

If I have to search for a baby gift I immediately turn to Etsy. I honestly think it is the best place to turn to. Not only do I get to support some super awesome mom's like Emily of Belle & Boys, I get the chance to buy some of the cutest of cutest of things.

Seriously, who doesn't love receiving gorgeous boutique style items. Not to mention that many of them are monogrammed & we all know how I love my monogrammed things.

I always love hearing the background stories of the shops I come across. Because many of them are mom's just like me...

A little about Emily of Belle & Boys:

"I started embroidering about two years ago because I am completely in love with anything monogrammed! She sounds like me!:) I made things for my kids and all of my friend's kids. Then friends of friends started asking me to make things for them. I love anything handmade, so I was familiar with Etsy. I decided to try and sell some things and see how they did. I am a stay at home mom to 3 kids, so any extra money is helpful! :) I named my shop Belle & Boys after my daughter (whose nickname is Belle) and my two sons. They are 5 and 4, inseparable, and we always refer to them as "the boys"! I love the process of what I do. Its so cool to take a piece of fabric and some thread and turn it into something that will be well used and loved!"

And that's exactly why I LOVE Etsy, I get the chance to support other women just like myself. Not to mention the cuteness...and in just two years Emily has made some of the most adorable things.

Let me just show you some of my fav's...

How awesome of a gift would this be!?!?
Personalized diaper and wipes case and changing pad
 I'm also a firm believe that EVERY child needs a
monogrammed blanket & this one is just perfect...

 How adorable is this little stuffed elephant

And oh how I would love this on my keychain! So simple yet so elegant & cute!
Monogrammed diaper bag tag, key chain, luggage tag
 But what I love most about her shop is that it doesn't just focus on girls...because hey we all know most shops are only about girls.

Love this set!

 And because every child needs a monogram blanket....

Emily was so kind to send me an absolutely adorable bib & a wipes case in my absolutely FAVORITE fabric. And of course it was monogrammed which means  DOUBLE LOVE!

Seriously, look at that fabric and DOUBLE SQUEAL because it's monogrammed.

And TRIPLE SQUEAL because they're awesomely made. The bib quickly became one of my absolute favorites because not only is it adorable (and monogrammed) but the back side is terry cloth and it snaps at the neck. And oh yeah, we're definitely at the stage where we pull our bib off...but not with the snaps. The great thing about the terry cloth back is that I can simply wet the backside of the bib and wipe her face. No dirtying a washcloth or wasting a paper towel..

And my oh my how I love the wipes case...this is will most definitely be something that Emma Lou continues to use. I can just see her carrying it to church with a little note pad and crayons. Or putting snacks in it. Oh yes, I'm totally thinking of ways she can use it FOREVER. Because I LOVE IT! Perhaps she can carry it to college with her makeup inside (I joke or do I)  . But in all seriousness I love her things!

I know where this Momma will be turning for baby gifts...Belle & Boys!

And now she's offered to give
the chance

I'd either choose something for my girls, those minty blankets are darling...otherwise, I have some friends that are expecting babies, soon. Anything in her shop would be a fabulous gift for a mom-to-be.
