Valentine’s Day Gift Guide for Mom and Baby

 

Ready to shower love on someone near and dear to you for Valentine’s Day? We asked our friend Larissa, from Living in Color, to help us gather a collection of her favorite heart themed items that are perfect gifting on Valentine’s Day! Check out her top picks and read why she is all heart eyes for these goodies! Share your favorite Valentine’s Day items in the comments below 🙂

It’s no secret – I’m a fan of all things hearts. Therefore, Valentine’s Day is extra special, in my book! I’ve put together a Valentine’s Day Gift Guide for Mom and Baby. These items are sure to wow you with their practicality, colorful vibes, and chic monochrome tones. I personally own several and plan to utilize them to spread the Valentine’s Day cheer!

I started with sharing two of my favorite carriers from Baby Tula. One of them is ‘Love Sucre’, a wrap conversion carrier, and the other is ‘Wild Hearts’ a fully printed canvas! These make great, and long-lasting gifts and come with baby snuggles and sleepy dust! Along with the adorable carriers I included a darling sweetheart headband from Little Lilla Boutique, and an adorable white and gold heart mug for all of that mom fuel that’s needed!

All mamas need a stylish and functional (and heart-printed) bag, right? A Tula Torba helps stylishly store all of the gear moms (and babies) need, and some chic heart-shaped sunglasses! Lastly, a gift guide isn’t complete without some snuggly blanket options. I mean who doesn’t love a soft and cozy Tula blanket? Speaking of feeling snuggly…wouldn’t it be nice if the Tula blankets came in adult sizes? A little birdie may have told me about a special surprise coming soon! Be sure follow Baby Tula on Facebook for updates on that special surprise. 😉

Just in case you still aren’t sure what to buy your loved ones for Valentine’s Day, don’t forget that a Tula gift card is always the right answer! I hope you enjoyed this list of items, and hope you have a blast shopping for those special loved ones in your life.

Tula Style: Monochrome and Distressed Looks

When we are exploring what styles we want to include in our various collections of Tula products, we often look to current fashion for mom and baby. The distressed monochromatic look is one of our favorite for all seasons and we see it popping in different variations including clothing, accessories, nursery items and more. We put together some tips for perfecting a simple distressed look with your baby carriers, that will have you and baby looking super chic!

1. Choose One Distressed Item…

and work your outfit around it. For instance, if you have some amazing distressed jeans you’re looking to wear, pick a sophisticated monochrome Tula like Twiggy, Arbol or Love Noir Ring Sling to finish out the look.

2. Choose a Distressed Carrier…

… and do the opposite! A carrier like Wild Hearts or Jet with some distressing and texture will look great with a solid, dark denim chambray and a pair of black skinnies!

3. Add a pop of color!

All distressed monochromes will look great with a bright pop of color! Match your Jet carrier with a bright red lipstick, your Wild Hearts with a royal blue top, wear your Asteria with a bold red, or your blanket with a bright yellow jumpsuit for baby. Anything goes!

4. Or don’t, and keep it a cool monochrome.

The all black, white and gray look is the easiest way to look cool. Keep your shirt a neutral solid, throw on Jet, and let the print do all the talking.

5. Accessorize!

 

Pull the look together with accessories! Add in a matte black diaper bag, a little sparkle with a simple earring , and a solid black shoe. Don’t forget your coordinating Splatter Jet Blanket, and you’ve mastered your distressed look.
