Everyone is having babies in Hollywood these days! Jennifer Garner is welcoming her third baby with husband Ben Affleck in the New Year. Hip-Hop royalty Beyonce and Jay-Z are welcoming a daughter (as accidentally leaked by former Destiny's Child bandmate Kelly Rowland), teen queen Hilary Duff and her hockey hubby Mike Comrie are welcoming a son, and singer and fashion mogul Jessica Simpson and fiancee Eric Johnson are also expecting.
I love planning baby showers for my celebrity and VIP clients. In Los Angeles, baby showers can be as extravagant as some people's weddings, with the parents to be spending hundreds of thousands of dollars on a fabulous party to celebrate their new arrival.
I'm always asked by my clients for great baby shower gift ideas and so I'm going to share with you some of my favorites that are extremely popular in the L.A. baby shower circuit. These Mommy and baby products are all top quality and sure to be appreciated by the soon to be parents.
In L.A. it is fashionable to drive a nice car, so it should come as no surprise that Angelenos want their lil cuties to be seen in a hot ride too. The Bumbleride Indie stroller is not just flashy, it happens to be one of the safest strollers on the market and at just 20 pounds, also the most lightweight and compact. I couldn't move two feet, without being stopped at The Grove by Mommies inquiring about my son's cool Bumbleride stroller.
Angeleno women love to dress to thrill and so what better baby shower gift than something that Mommy and baby can use. Timi & Leslie's chic line of diaper bags double as gorgeous hand bags and travel bags long after diaper duty is over. The Mommy to be will love you for getting her one of their enviable bags.
Nothing is more important than knowing your baby is safe and snuggly in their crib. For Angelenos who have tons of red carpet events and charity benefits to attend, they have peace of mind that their baby is resting easy with the The First Years Home & Away Portable Video Monitor. Parents can check in on their baby via Skype for free from their phones or computers and can even talk to their baby. This is a must have item for new parents!
Finally, one of my all time favorite baby brands, Baby Bjorn makes an amazing baby carrier that is organic. The Baby Bjorn baby carriers allow you to transport your little one safely and comfortably. Babies love to rest on your chest where they can feel the soothing beat of your heart. These stylish and good for the planet carriers enable you to be hands free and to walk around L.A. on a beautiful day with your baby in tow. Pink's adorable little Willow has been seen all over Malibu in her Baby Bjorn carrier.
Baby showers are so much fun. They are one of my favorite events to both plan and attend. You won't go wrong with any of my reccommended gifts and you are sure to be adored by the new Mommy if you gift her with any of these fabulous products at her upcoming L.A. baby shower.
