The Growing Bedroom in a Box



Smart Kid by Adensen Furniture is quite simply a bedroom in a box. It starts life as a compact cot, complete with handy storage drawers at the side and bottom plus  a changing table on top. Great right? But then, voila, it transforms into a bed, table and felt board-cum-book rack for when your child is older.



Such a great idea and no worry about having to buy or store other furniture as your child grows. So it’s ecologically and economically friendly too as this will easily take them up to ten years old. It comes in plain wood for €325, or pay an extra €25  and have it painted. Shipping to Australia from Estonia is available, although Adensen tell us that they are looking for a stockist here in Oz. Watch this space! (via Inhabitots)

Baby Shower Gifts and Favours

Hosting a baby shower? Well, much like a wedding, a baby shower is a very special occasion for the mum-to-be and her family and friends, and it's a nice touch to provide the guests with a favour or gift to take home as a souvenir of the special day… Below are 6 too-cute baby shower favour ideas from Beau Coup

 
If you're looking for a sweet favour—and you happen to favour sweets—these charming mini candy jars are the answer! Each personalised baby shower candy jar can be filled with your choice of treats, nuts or teas. Or, set up a lolly bar at the baby shower and let the guests fill their jars with all their childhood favourites. 


Tick-tock, tick-tock… It’s the sound of this cheeky kitchen egg timer! Whether you’re oh-so-pregnant and ready to hatch or you’re hatching a plan to throw an unforgettable baby shower, these practical favours are the perfect choice. With just one twist, this egg-shaped timer counts down any number of minutes from one to 60. Each ingenious baby shower gift arrives in a clear round gift box with an “About to Hatch” themed design including a “Grade A” sticker. A white organza bow and egg-shaped “For you” tag completes the package. Measures approximately 2.25“W x 3”H. Box measures 2.75”L x 3.25”H.


Here comes baby! Let the world know with "New Baby on the Block" sticky notes. These baby blocks make unique baby announcements and practical baby shower favours. Plus, these sticky notes can be a distracted mum-to-be's best friend when she has baby on the brain! Designed to look like a baby's building block, each paper favour features pastel green, yellow, pink and blue letters and borders. The white sticky notes read "Take Note!" in lavender, while the block reads "New Baby on the Block!" A sheer, white organza bow and matching "For You" tag complete this darling baby favour. 


These darling crystal stroller keepsakes are irresistible and sure to garner delight. Each mini baby stroller keepsake is artfully crafted out of faceted crystal and finished with silver, metal details. Perfect for baby showers, christenings and baptisms. 


Sweet and fresh as the smell of a bitty baby, these baby shower egg soaps are truly delightful baby shower favours. Guests will marvel at how real each egg looks nestled in its nest. Scented soaps come in your choice of pink or blue with tiny brown speckles. Each cellophane-wrapped soap arrives in a nest made of shredded raffia, and is adorably packaged in an elegant little brown and white gift box.


It's a boy! It's a girl! Either way, it's time to celebrate. Shower mummy-to-be with gifts and in return she might give you a little treat herself. These baby bottle votive candles are fabulous baby shower favours. Adorable little "bottles" complete with bib tags that say "it's a boy" or "it's a girl". And the best part is, the top is removable so you can use the elegant candle underneath anywhere. Each baby bottle candle measures approximately 3.5" tall. Candles are white and unscented. Packaged in a clear gift box with a gift tag attached, these favours are ready to go for a no hassle baby shower idea everyone can love.
