Anyone who has ever shopped for baby shower and new baby gifts knows that the choices are infinitesimal. Each outfit is cuter than the next. Each stuffed animal is imagined in small hugging arms. But every once in a while a company or product comes along that not only elicits oohs and aahs but truly stands out from the rest. For us, Little Giraffe is that company with those products. It offers the most luxurious baby blankets, crib bedding sets, and more. Their soft security blankets and hooded towels make great baby shower gifts and are a particular favorite of celebrity moms including Angelina Jolie, Katie Holmes, Nicole Richie, and Gwen Stefani. All items are machine washable and made in the USA. So stock up on baby shower gifts or find a special something for your own little bundle. – Enjoy!
Update! The latest in the Little Giraffe line up, Bella feels more like a cloud than a fabric with a fluffier texture than classic chenille. Its palette of gentle muted color options soothes sophisticated tastes trimmed in smooth satin or a gorgeous brocade print. Count mom among its most loyal fans as Bella remains soft and cozy with machine washing. Best of all, little Giraffe's highly acclaimed hooded towels are now available for your “little giraffe” with a softer, quieter personality (the Fernando of giraffes 🙂 ).
Not quite Little Giraffe (the company) but definitely for your own little giraffe …

Finally — we have put together a party package devoted exclusively to zebra prints! Check it out here:
Zebra Theme Party Planning, Ideas, & Supplies
Come on ladies, get your wild on! This zebra theme party package features the best of the best in zebra theme party planning, ideas, and supplies. PartyIdeaPros.com will walk you through every step of your event planning from choosing your zebra theme invitations, zebra party decor, and zebra party favors to making sure the night lasts a lifetime. This is a chic and fun theme for birthday parties of all ages including quinceanera, sweet sixteen, Bat Mitzvah, and 21st birthday celebrations. Also think zebra as you are planning your bridal shower and bachelorette party, baby showers, any ladies night out celebration, and even your retirement party. It is definitely time to party hearty!
Retro Paper straws are all the rage. They not only add a fun vibe to your table decor, they add color and a dash of whimsy. As you can see we have featured them individually displayed in mason jars in our patriotic theme parties. Sometimes we even add an antenna ball on top. For my own son's Bar Mitzvah we topped MLB antenna balls on coordinating straws and used them as place cards at the entrance to party. Just yesterday, my sister threw a handful of striped paper straws in a paper cup – just the right touch for her Labor Day barbecue.
Both Swoozies and Amazon has a nice collection of retro paper straws. Consider using the pink and blue polka dot straws for your next baby shower. We love the mini bat straws and orange and black stripe straws for Halloween parties. The red and green stripe straws are a must have for your cookie baking holiday parties. The yellow stars straws would be an adorable adder to a Twinkle Twinkle Little Star Party. And we believe the yellow & grey stripe straws are elegant enough to use at a chic, vintage chalkboard chic wedding reception. Another idea — choose your sorority colors for your next house party.
One more idea for children's birthday parties … choose a variety of straws and cut them into 1 – 2 inch strips. Now string them together to create cute paper necklaces. The leftovers can be used for every day, at lunch and dinnertime.
