I wasn't home for 10 minutes before (1) I was addicted and (2) I had purchased two beautiful hats from Cloo Gifts... two different shades of pink, duh! :p
Since then, I have bought at least 8 hats from Ching (the creator/seller). They are all beautiful, so well made (her winter hat lasted all winter and I packed it up for use on the next rugrat - if it's a girl, obviously). I got SO many compliments on it too... most people asking if I made it myself and talking about how talented I am as a Mommy! :p ha ha ha, of course, I mentioned Ching and Etsy and, hopefully, spread the addiction a little myself!
Recently, I bought a few gorgeous hats with ears from Ching for a few girlfriends who are pregnant and Ching was fabulous and sent along a few hats for me to giveaway on MOmMy bRaIn! Honestly, this is my new favourite shower gift. They are so unique, look good on every baby and are pretty gender neutral! You know you're not going to be stuck in that "crap, I got her another hooded towel, or another set of blue jammies. Not that Moms don't love that, and trust me, the duplicates are fab. But, it's nice to get something you wouldn't have gotten for yourself - non?
If you/your pregnant friend knows the sex, I highly recommend the hat with earflaps... Jane has four. They are so gorgeous and you can pretty much get ching to make one for you in any colour or size.
Chings hat range from $10-$13 which is INSANE as I've paid as much for a hat from the grocery store that I saw fifteen other kids wearing on my way out.
Here are the details of our Cloo For You Giveaway:
Ching sent TWO gorgeous "little bear" hats (that's what I call 'um) but they are technically hats with ears and ear flaps... one nutmeg and one off-white. Both are gender neutral and could be used for a sweet boy or girl!
How do you get 'um?
