Have no fear, with Teething Bling you will have the security of knowing your jewelry is intact and the baby can safely chew away on the durable pendant. They even have colors that are peach, strawberry and Vanilla Bean scented.

The price ranges from $19.99-$21.99 for the necklace/pendant set sold online.

Moms that are sentimental and take tons of pictures of their little ones will cherish the I Love Mommy Because book.

Simply read the line “I love mommy because she…” and there’s a space for their favorite photo that best describes the line. Priced right under $20 this book is a perfect gift for the new mom to treasure for a lifetime.
