Gifts for Mom & Baby (WAHM Review + Giveaway) *CLOSED*

I am always looking for unique gifts.  When it comes to weddings and baby showers (and the like), I tend to get something small off the registry and then get something else that is super fun and creative.  In the coming months, as I do reviews, I'm hoping to also include a "gift guide" in the process.  I'll have gift ideas for babies, kids, moms, and dads.  And today I'm about to introduce you to a really neat Work-at-Home-Mom (WAHM) shop that has fantastic gifts for mom and baby!
I was given free product(s) in exchange for an open & honest review.  No other compensation was given.  All opinions are my own.
When I stumbled across Marley's Monsters, I knew she had to be a part of the WAHM series!  Her branding and products are absolutely phenomenal.  The quality and marketing are to such a caliber that I wouldn't be surprised to find it on the shelves at a fancy boutique.  Sarah specializes in reuseables (cloth wipes, facial pads, nursing pads, etc.) as well as fun things for baby (adorable bibs, crinkle paper, & more).

The story behind Marley's Monsters is a cute one!  While Sarah was on maternity leave with her baby girl (Marley), she started this shop.  What she didn't expect was that she would love it so much that she would leave her job to pursue this hands on experience full-time! 
  
Adorable little family right!?!
Here is what I was sent to review:

And I LOVE all of it!

1. The Spray Bottle.
Love this pattern....so much!

She sells these for use with cloth wipes.  (Yes, she also sells cloth wipes and even soap bits to make a solution!)  You get to pick which fabric covers the bottle and there are a ton of options!  When we were talking about the review, using the sprayer for cloth wipes was what I had originally intended.  However, I love it so much, that I think I'm going to be greedy and keep it for myself.  I'm just about out of hair spray and I've been planning on making my own.  This sprayer would be absolutely perfect for that!  I'll keep my boring sprayer with the diaper stuff.  :P

 2. Facial Rounds....or....squares......
I think her branding is phenomenal.

I love using flannel facial rounds instead of cotton.  They don't leave bits of cotton on my face and I don't have to worry about running out or buying more.  Plus, the facial rounds from Marley's Monsters are just downright adorable and fun!  Here is a size comparison to a typical cotton round:
A little bigger = not a bag thing.
Each round has 2 different patterns.

Here are the rounds Sarah sent me...

...and the second side.

Foxes are a huge hit right now!

Now for my absolute favorite item!!

3. Crinkle Paper!!!

This was such a cute idea!  It would make the BEST baby gift!!  I can't wait until I have another baby shower to go to!  This will definitely make the gift bag!!  And you can create so many different combinations of patterns since it is two-sided.  The possibilities are endless with the amount of fabric options Sarah has!
You know you want to just grab it and crinkle it all up.  The noise is pretty satisfying.

....only louder.  ;)

My Little Lady absolutely loves this fabulous invention!  She is just figuring out how to grab things...and when she gets a hold of this she grins from ear to ear.  It is definitely one of her favorites right now!



This was the best video I could get....but definitely not the best moment.  I just have a horrible habit of leaving my phone where I'm not.  haha.  Can any other mom relate??

Here is a sneak peek at a few other things Marley's Monsters carries:

    1. I loved the pandas!! But when I was picking prints for our crinkle paper, I was trying to stay gender neutral. Hubby said the hearts weren't boy friendly. haha. Not that a baby would care much....
