{Dimples Baby} Review & GIVEAWAY!


Dimples Baby is a fantastic one-stop shop for all haute accessories for a baby! From their hats, headbands, & hair clips to their designer socks, baby slings and blankets, you're sure to find an adorable, chic baby gift here! They are a company based out of Canada, but one that also services the whole world, as they are internet-based {although they do have a brick-and-mortar location in Rainbow Lake, Alberta, for those of you in the area!}, so be sure to swing in to their shop, no matter where you reside, and take a peek at what they have to offer.

Their website is set up with you, the shopper, in mind, as you can shop not only by category, but also by brand. And better yet, if you're going to be having a baby {and hence, baby shower}, you can also set up a gift registry there. And as a buyer of baby showers and birthdays myself, I, for one, appreciate gift registries, as they make my life as a buyer, oh-so-convenient!

So I recently had the chance to review one of their Pippalily baby slings (in "burgundy gothic rose," as shown at right) with our new baby girl. Pippalily products are made in Canada, 100% cotton and are machine-washable {Yay! for convenience!}. Among some of its most lovable traits are that it is easy to use, as it has no confusing snaps, buckles or D-rings, and that it fits quite easily into our diaper bag. Instead of having such confusing apparatus like most slings out there, the Pippalily slings are offered in 4 sizes (according to your own shirt size), and putting them on is easy as pie. You just slip over your head & shoulder, and "wah-lah," it's on! The fabric choices in which the Pippalily sling is available is also a huge bonus ~ they're all made from the highly lauded Amy Butler designer fabrics and very couture, which means you, as a modern & chic Mom, will love wearing them!

We were also sent a beautiful bath set from SwaddleDesigns, a brand that Dimples Baby carries, which included one of their hooded towels and matching wash cloth sets. The towel and wash cloths are made out of plush Turkish terry velour with chocolate satin trim. Doesn't that sound divine {when are they going to start making these for us Moms anyway!?}? The fabric pattern & colors {choices in green, blue or pink with the ever-popular chocolate brown} are completely modern, yet simple enough that I think every Mom, no matter her style, will love these! Yet beyond chic, the SwaddleDesigns towel & washcloths are abundantly soft & absorbant, not to mention an absolute everyday essential for baby. Quite frankly, they are beyond comparison to any other hooded towel I've come across regarding softness ~ and isn't that what we want cocooning our babies afterall? This all translates into a fabulous baby shower gift, if I do say so myself.

Dimples Baby is also affiliated with their exclusive toy store, "Play and Learn Toys." So once you're done shopping for your baby gift accessories, you can head on over there to find some must-have toys. Additionally, you can check out their blog here to see what they've been up to!

I would love to try the Jumbo Dots Sleep Sack because I've heard from friends that they are so much better than blankets. Babies stay alseep when they are warm and cozy and I think this would do the trick!

I'd love to get one of the Very Light Kiwi with Kiwi Mod Squares baby bib. It's so cute, and I'm going through bibs like crazy. I like the green b/c I can use it for my toddler son or my baby girl.

I love the bibs! They are such great, modern designs and obviously in high demand with a newborn!! I would love to add some ot my collection, and probably would say that the Organic Baby Bib - Kiwi Mod Circles on Ivory is my favorite style, particularly since we don't know the sex of our baby yet.

I love the Olive Acanthus Baby Sling because the fabric is so fancy! I didn't have a sling with my first baby (what was I thinking?) and have been shopping around. I'd really like to get something like the ones Dimples Baby offers.
