I am proud to re-introduce you to our latest sponsor, Egg2Cake, a company I first discovered at the 2010 stationery show. Since Egg2Cake’s tagline is “playful paper goods for making merry memories,” it’s not surprising that I (a self-professed stationery and keepsake junkie) love its products. The company was started by two moms and best friends, Jamie Diersing and Kate Blackman, who wanted to celebrate the high (and low) moments of motherhood with fun, quirky products that use wordplay (the punny “Momglish” line), list-keeping/organizing (helpful sticky page markers), and keepsakes (“Mamento” Pregnancy Journal) all to help you celebrate and commemorate that unique time after you become a new parent. These are the kinds of products that work equally well whether you give them as a gift to an expectant or new mom, or as a gift to yourself. Let me show you some of my favorites.
One of Egg2Cake’s signature gifts (and a surefire hit at a baby shower) is its Momglish Pocket Dictionary ($12.95). This handy guide will explain a new mom needs to know for her “A.D.” (that’s After Delivery) life. I like this description of “Wrapture” (no, not the Rapture)–basically, that truth that dawns on every parent at some point that you really could have just given your kid an empty box and wrapping paper without any expensive toy inside.
Another great gift idea (perhaps for when you are visiting bleary-eyed new parents) is this set of Momglish door hangers ($12.95 for set of 4). Which one do you like best?
For memory-keeping, there are plenty of products to help even the most exhausted new mom jot down unforgettable moments (which would otherwise be forgotten in the haze of sleep deprivation). How about keeping this Mamentos Notepad ($7.95) on the kitchen table?
The fun doesn’t stop after infancy, though. Check out the entire range of Egg2Cake greeting cards that includes a Happy Half Birthday card ($3) for kids who can’t wait 6 more months (or for friends whose birthdays you forgot months ago!) as well as a Daylight Savings sympathy card (boy, can I relate to that one).
Check out all of the goodies–including an upcoming line of entertaining products called “Toast” at Egg2Cake.
