Since we are all about personalization at Babybox.com, planning and anticipation are natural bedfellows. If you want to personalize a gift, you need to think about what you want, how you want an item personalized, and what that message should say. That can take time and much thought in creating that perfect gift for the one you love. It also means that it takes time for us to make the item you want to your specifications. The process only begins once your order is in. Sometimes it can be a short turnover, but other times it may take longer to create the perfect item for you. Craftsmanship is something we take seriously. It equals quality and that is what we want for you, the customer.
So before time gets away on you, why not put some thought into the upcoming holidays. Christmas is less than three months away. Hanukkah is two months and counting. It just so happens that Thanksgiving is on the same day as Hanukkah this year. And of course Halloween will be here in four weeks. All of these celebrations are exciting. And Babybox.com has items that can be personalized for all of these celebrations. It just takes a little planning on your part to ensure that you order your special gifts in time to receive your personalized items before the celebration arrive.

Is there some principal of nature which states that we never know the quality of what we have until it is gone? ~ Herman Melville
An undeniably true quote that many can relate to, especially after facing adversity. Melville, a New York City native, would have every right to expound this theory again in more recent times, in light of New York’s recent tussle with Hurricane Sandy. Perhaps that nearness to the ocean got into his skin and soul, as even after moving away from it, he was drawn back to the sea again and again. In fact, an 18-month voyage on the whaling ship Acushnet, started in 1841, turned into four years spent abroad. The experiences on this whaler and subsequent other ships certainly left their mark, as they are said to have inspired Melville’s most famous work – “Moby Dick”. This Great American Novel was published today, November 14th, way back in 1851. It is hard to believe that the story of Ishmael and Captain Ahab’s adventures aboard the Pequod, as they pursued the Great White Whale, is 161 years old. The novel’s status as a classic tale of good and evil, as well as examining our place in the universe, sparked a love affair with the innocuous whale that lives on today.
Would you call this whale fearsome? Hardly! In fact, this Oopsy Daisy “Whale” nightlight instead brings a cute and lovable whale into your little one’s room. This nightlight can be easily wiped clean with a soft, dry cloth and is ideal for your child’s room as it does not have a glass surface to break. You can personalize the nightlight with your child’s name or any other word or phrase like “Good Night”. This nightlight is designed by Jill McDonald, whose biography is included with each unit.
This whale is even less intimidating, especially when worn by your little girl. The personalized whale pattern baseball tee shirt will look adorable on your little girl. Designed with hot pink and sage green whale print, it is classic and unique. This fun baseball style shirt is one of our favorites. Available in three colors; white with blue sleeves, white with black sleeves or white with pink sleeves, it works on any child. Made from 100% cotton and easy to care for. You can also order this design in short and long sleeved lap tees, capsleeves, short and long sleeve tees and tank tops. Too cute!
Before you take your whale infatuation too far and move out to sea like Melville did for years, why not satisfy your whale interest with this beautiful daybed. Perfect for older children or an additional bed in your nautical theme nursery, Seabrook Classics give you the opportunity to furnish your little one’s place with this cute and appealing Whale Daybed. Fine edge-cuttings and vibrant color finishing. Designed to prevent little ones from falling due to its tall headboard and foot board made of high-quality wood.
And last, but not least, with Christmas coming, Babybox.com can’t resist showing off our whale Christmas ornaments for the whale-lovers among us. This charming Christmas ornament features a hand painted whale on a white picture frame. Hang the ornament on the tree and share your favorite photo with friends and family. To make it extra special personalize the ornament with your names, the year or a couples monogram to make it truly one of a kind. Enjoy on your own tree or give as a gift!
Thar she blows cap’ain!
