Once upon a time…
there was a woman with a dream. She liked to shop for gifts for friends, family and co-workers, but found that finding the time and the right product was a challenge. So she decided to make it easier for others by simplifying the process. And in 1996 Babybox.com was born.
Now this woman wasn’t content to just sell a bib here or a mass-produced toy there. Oh no, she wanted to sell only the highest quality baby products that she could find. She also wanted the process to be easy, as she knew how precious time could be. Who has the time to shop umpteen numbers of stores to find the right product that you desire? Some do, but enough other people struggle with time management during the day and just want to go home to relax at the end of it. Hence online shopping was key to Babybox.com‘s mission. Shopping from your own home simplifies any shopping experience, especially when helpful customer service representatives are just a quick phone call away to help you with your shopping needs.
Sometimes the magic of a gift is in the packaging of it though. Who doesn’t recall the excitement of staring at an unopened present, wondering what could possibly be inside? What would Christmas and birthdays be like without that thrill? That’s why Babybox.com also makes the effort to present all of our orders in beautiful packaging. Sometimes the surprise is just as important as the gift itself and we know that.
Ultimately, the vision was all about babies though. They are a wonderful addition to any family and Babybox.com celebrates that. We offer personalized gifts, custom-made furniture, unique on-of-a-kind items, and products that are just plain perfect for kids. Because not only did Katherine Styne Type want all of this for her customers, but she has a family of her own that deserve only the best as well. So if you are wondering where to find a great baby gift, try Babybox.com. Katherine had a vision 17 years ago, and it has only grown bigger through the years.
See why she stands out in the e-commerce marketplace today!

So is everyone back to school now? How has the transition gone from summer fun with few schedules and routines, to full-blown back to the grind running been? Yeah, it is rough for many of us. Not only do you have to fit in school, homework, and extracurricular activities, but it is a good idea to work on going to bed earlier, so that you can get up and get going for those busy days. It might take a few weeks, but you’ll get back into the swing of things soon enough.
In the meantime, why not sweeten the bedtime routine with some new pajamas to encourage slipping between the sheets at night.
First up, make sure baby is snug and warm this fall. How sweet is this hand-embroidered pima cotton footie! The sweetest ruffle detailing at the collar, lends such a classic look. Super soft and cozy, you will love your baby in this.

Perfect for a day at the pool, a post bath cover up or just before bedtime. After a dip in the pool, ocean or tub, wrap your little one in the super soft warmth of the hooded Barefoot Dreams Kids Cover Up Robe. The greatest feature of Barefoot Dreams is that it gets softer and cozier with each washing!
It doesn’t hurt for Mom to have some new pjs too. This pink fall flower nightshirt is as comfortable as it is flattering! Made of a very cute and very cozy flannel fabric with pink piping detailing.

The first bell has rung. School has begun. Once all you parents have finished your happy dances, you can get back into routines again yourself. Did you think that you would get away scot free? Sorry about that! It’s time for PTA meetings, running kids to after-school activities, and maybe even a trip to the gym (if you can fit back into your sweats after a long lazy summer). Up and at em. Let’s get the adults back into shape today.
Ok, PTA meetings are something that just has to get scheduled in.No questions asked. And unless your kids are already old enough to stay home on their own, that means a babysitter for you. That’s where this handy little journal comes in. This is the perfect gift for a new mom. Instead of scrawling instructions on the kitchen notepad every time you hire a sitter, jot them down once and for all in “A Parent’s Journal for the Babysitter”. An extremely well-organized diary of all your baby’s routines, special likes, dislikes, and important phone numbers. Works well for older kids too! Comes equipped with tabbed sections and categories. There’s even a separate pad for contact information and schedules. It’s so simple, stylish and useful, this will be one of the most valuable gifts you can give. No more worries about leaving your child to new caregivers or visiting relatives.
Before you hit the first PTA meeting, you might want to hit the gym. Grab your sweats, runners and a water bottle. It is time to work off all those summer cocktails ladies! Everything that you need for the gym will fit into the new Captain Louis tote by Henry Brown. It is a must have in every household. This large stylish canvas bag is an ideal choice whenever you need a bag to carry a lot of stuff; beach towels, ski jackets, weekend toys, riding boots, tennis or gym clothes. With a bit more style than a LL Bean tote, this bag is a nice alternative. The Captain Louis is made of durable all canvas exterior, finished out with handles and a bottom in bourbon barrel brown. Inside is finished with a brown and white stripe and is trimmed with a coordinating velvet ribbon. Each Captain Louis Tote Bag measures an oversized 26 x 17. It is available in 7 colors each with cream colored top stitching. Features a single interior zipper pocket; an easy top tabbed closure.
Along with resuming your trips to the gym, how about getting back into other healthier habits. Drinking water now and again wouldn’t hurt. Make a statement at the gym, park or beach with our Clairebella personalized water bottles. Apart from being stylish and comfortable, they are Eco-friendly as well. Take it any place from gym, park, office or even for shopping girls! It comes in 8”t x 3”w size with 20 oz. The bottle is extremely handy with two lids and a carabiner key clip for attaching it easily. It is BPA free as well. The maximum characters that can be written are 7.
The only thing left is to organize routines for the entire family. Easy, right? Not when Jimmy’s got football practice at 6pm, 3 night a week, Jenna’s got piano twice a week, and Nathan takes both karate and Scouts to fit in. The Wall Calendar from MomAgenda is a brilliant new addition for every busy family. This Wall Calendar’s unique format separates planning space for mom and up to four children so you can manage multiple schedules without multiple headaches. This new design has new colors and more space!
Now the whole family is ready to swing back into routine!

This weekend is all about MOM!
It is Mother’s Day this coming Sunday, May 12th. What better time to celebrate all things MUMMY? Babybox.com knows a thing or two about Mamas. I bet you do too. Can you relate to these sentiments about your own dear Mum?
Happy Mother’s Day
market sling from serena & lily – flax/sky blue
- Mummies bring babies into the world
- Moms kiss booboos after their little ones fall down
- Mamas give the best goodnight hugs and chase away any nightmares when they threaten
- Mothers teach children Right from wrong
- Mommies reward their kiddos with dessert after feats like saving the world from dastardly blanket invasions
Plus, they have been known to perform a few other actions that aren’t always understood right away, despite maybe being good for you;
personalized plate diamond pattern
- Mothers aren’t afraid to scold kids when run they into the street before looking
- Mums have been known to give evil eyes after dinner is eaten with fingers instead of forks
- Mammas send their babies to bed when they are too tired to function anymore, despite adamant denials otherwise
- Mommas make children try all kinds of food before they are allowed to pass judgement on whether it is liked or not
- Ma forces kiddos to get dressed before heading out to school every day
For all that they are, we love them and want them to know it. So we do whatever we can to show it, like;
crayola crayon apron – pink stripe
- Make our beds the best we can (lumps notwithstanding)
- Give big wet, sloppy kisses, just because
- Create artwork to fill a multitude of fridges
- Pick flowers to present to her, whether they be your prize petunias or simple dandelions
- Surprise you with breakfast in bed on Mother’s Day morning (we love burnt toast and coffee with grinds in it!)
And for our part at Babybox.com, we’d like to add a few more suggestions of what Mom might really want this Mother’s Day. She wants;
personalized baby announcement frame
- To sleep in
- To not have to do laundry
- To have a meal made for her
- That homemade card from her precious children (and maybe a bought treat or two!)
- To receive a million and one hugs and kisses from the people she loves best in the world – her KIDS
Happy Mother’s Day ladies! Hope it’s a special day for you.

There’s no denying it. This time of year many of us prefer skirts to pants. It is still warm enough to get away without long pants, but a mite cool in the mornings for shorts. Skirts are the perfect answer. If its cool, you can add nylons or knee highs. If its warmer, let your legs be bare and free! They are great for grocery shopping, dinner parties or just puttering around the house. Babybox.com appreciates that and has skirts for all the girls, big and small. Which ones do you like?
If you have been living in your Mom-jeans and board shorts, then take a look at this pretty skirt to make you feel feminine again. Here is the soire skirt giant pink and green roses.

Stylish yet comfortable, the classic pink wool plaid skirt is a nice Fall wardrobe staple for any girl. It has soft colors that match many outfits. A must have for Thanksgiving. The best part is that the sizing is available for ages 2-12 years.
It’s not just older girls that like to be pretty though. Little girls have been known to sport a skirt or seven as well. Of course, more often than not little girls have a penchance for getting a little messy. Good quality clothing that can stand up to the washer can be a life-saver for any busy mom. That’s why you need to consider this pretty skirt. Classic A-Line styling for every day and very comfortable, the new button skirt will be a wardrobe staple this Fall Season for back to school. Available in 4 corduroy color combinations perfect for Fall. With sizing from ages 2-12 year, both your big and little girls can enjoy this pretty skirt.
What about the youngest girls though? The selection is all yours as far as outfits are concerned. And which mother out there hasn’t dreamed of their baby girl all dressed up in ribbons and bows in the cutest outfit going? You know there will be plenty of skirts in your baby’s wardrobe. You know what you need underneath it though; a bloomer to make the outfit shine. These pique diaper covers are a wardrobe staple that will also make a memorable gift.

Happy Mother’s Day to all of you Mommies out there who deserve recognition for all that you do.
We allow our bodies to be stretched and kicked while our babies are in utero and again when our little angels come into the world. We shelter and nourish our children. We support and encourage all that they do. When bumps and scrapes occur, we hug and kiss those tears away while applying those magic bandages that make it all better. Mothers let our babies step into the world, testing, learning and growing, but also stay close enough to be there for security and encouragement along the way.
We all come from mothers and they all deserve a little extra love this weekend. Babybox.com has a few ideas of what you can do to show your mother that you love and appreciate all that she does. Why not get one of gifts for her?
Wrap Mom up in this cozy chic hoodie by Barefoot Dreams. It is a must have for any mother’s wardrobe. You may even want more than one once you feel one; one for home…one for travel…and one for work…you’ll never run out of excuses to wear it. This hoodie is available in 5 striking shades. These fitted, fashion conscious zip-up’s are made of famous BambooChic® making them just as irresistible as our Barefoot Dreams robes. This is sure to keep you cozy and warm all year long.
You know that Mom will always be available for you, no matter where you are. If that means that she is a phone call away, why not make sure her cell phone is pretty and safe from harm? Protect her phone while adding personalization! These new cell phone cases from Clairebella will fit your iPhone 3G/3GS, iPhone 4, Blackberry Bold 9700 and Blackberry Curve 8520. Choose from 12 patterns and 13 accent/font colors. Only monograms will be available on these, but boy, will your phone look fantastic! These cases are made by case-mate and will follow their warranty.
Select your case pattern, the font color, the monogram background color, and font style. Keep in mind that the Times NR is uppercase letters only and will all be the same size. It will read first, middle and then last initial and would be a great look for a men’s case (so keep that in mind for Father’s Day!). For the Script or Monogram fonts, the middle letter is larger than the two letters on the sides. It will read first, last and then middle or maiden initial. The Script is traditionally a feminine font and the Monogram font could certainly be used for a man or woman. You are the designer, let your imagination work!
This Amanda Necklace will be certain to bring her a smile as well. Shiny hammered rings link earthy shades of dyed white jade, coffee glass, gold sand glass, brown mother-of-pearl, and resin beads. Adjustable length. Wear long, or tie short with ribbon. Everyone will comment on her unique jewelry when she wears it and you can be proud to say that it came from you.
Wrap it all up with recycled personalized gift wrap – louisville. This beautiful letterpress personalized “Louisville” gift wrap is recycled and recyclable. This Eco friendly wrapping paper is the perfect way to gift wrap holiday gifts, birthday gifts and baby shower gifts. It is different from others as a unique nine step stamping process is used to produce each roll.
So now you can show how special the gift receiver is by personalizing this gift wrap. Choose your lettering style, imprint color and wording and we will create something special for you or your recipient.
Happy Mother’s Day!

Summer time is under way. While lazy days will come and go, you can be sure that there will be many a day where you will be running from the beach, to playdates, to the game and maybe even the cottage. If you want to make sure that you can fit in all of that, maybe it is time to grab that day planner you have been meaning to invest in. This snap closure, 3-ring day planner and personal agenda is perfect for every busy Mom. Introducing the most luxurious momAgenda ever: the Personal Portfolio is a gorgeous new momAgenda day planner featuring a brand new, bonded leather 3-ring binder!

There is space for writing in all your essentials, like important phone numbers, kids’ and adults’ medical information, birthdays, websites and passwords, addresses and more. With a “To Do” section, “Notes” section, and “Planning” section that includes space for party planning, vacation planning and more, you will be set for everything that comes your way. It even has colored tabs to keep each section separate for your ease and convenience. You can now plan your days, weeks and months easily.
Having your day planner is only half the battle though. It is one thing to have your plans laid out, but setting dates with others takes a little more organization.

Every mom this summer needs a sophisticated GG bag to carry to the beach, park, poolside or anywhere your days take you. A bit more refined than the classic LL Bean Canvas Tote, the GG Tote has rounded shape and complementing round handle. The unique GG design is on heavy, natural canvas with a choice of colored bindings. With your own personal 3-letter monogram or up to 8 letter word you will arrive to your date in style.
At the end of the day, when you are too pooped to move, it is finally time to unwind. You have worked hard all day and deserve a little something to relax. Why not fill up your new personalized lucite ice bucket with a tray of ice cubes and slide a nice bottle of wine, coolers or lemonade into it to cool off with. A great addition to your outside patio or poolside party, you will be glad you have it when you need a little refreshment. Choose from our stylish swatches + monograms to create your one-of-a-kind gift… or design one for yourself! Now sit back and relax after your day of planning and running around and let summer fun be your true guide.
