I’ve been MIA for a month because of our sucky broadband connection. We should really change it soon, since their team was supposed to come in today to change our modem but after waiting for ONE WHOLE DAY, nobody came. As it is, I’m still using a prepaid internet connection, which isn’t really suitable for my online work. Oh well, what a way to start the year!
For 2013, I plan to fill out my Life List as suggested by Martine. I’ll be sharing it with you guys soon so watch out for it!
There are giveaways lined up for this month so better to follow me on Twitter and Facebook.
This shirt from Googoo and Gaga is so soft to the skin! I will order some more! We also received the Learning Years Memory Book which will be useful when Z starts schooling. And another miracle item is the Indigo Baby Jar of Hope. Z has really sensitive skin which turns red with the slightest touch. The Jar of Hope removes the redness within minutes of application!
Rone, the cool mom-preneur behind Mothering Earthlings, is very accommodating in having a gift registry in her online shop. Setting it up is pretty easy: browse through the site, list down the items that you want then email it to Rone, then a link will be given to you to share with your guests! It’ll be easy for your guests as there are several payment methods and an option to ship the gift directly to you!
By the way, Mothering Earthlings can help you beat the Holidaze with their Christmas sale! Shop now!
We also had a registry at Rustan’s Baby and Beyond. There are two types of registry with them: general and specific. With a general registry, you’ll just give a list of items that you want then your guests will just be the one to choose which brand to get. A specific registry means having to go around the store and choose the items you want to be included in your list. This type calls for an appointment, since a personnel will have to go around with you.
My only issue with Rustan’s is the fact that the guests will already be given a list of the items listed and yet, there would still be cases on similar gifts. I hope they can update the list when an item has already been bought. It was such a hassle to bring back all the gifts and exchange it.
And guests, the registries were announced beforehand so there’s no excuse not to get from our listed items. Please take note of the gender, age and interest of the child when buying a gift. We’ve received gifts that are meant for younger babies (and one for a girl!!!).
What were your favorite gifts during your child’s 1st birthday? Do share!
