Unique Gifts for Mother's Day 2021 - Love and Bub Artworks

Unique Gifts for Mother's Day 2021

If you had to choose just one person out of billions in the world who deserves to be spoiled to their heart’s content, it’s certainly mom. Moms are superheroes, breathing life into tiny human beings, and endless sacrifices every day. Moms deserve so much more but at least once a year; they should kick back, relax, and just feel special all day long.

 

Every year, when Mother’s Day is coming up, everyone frantically searches online for some unique gift ideas they haven’t already given their moms in the past. It can be a real challenge to select the right gift that screams "I love you, mom" without being cliché.

 

The thing with moms is that they’re fonder of things that hold sentimental value and those that they can keep around for a long time. Here are the top unique gifts for mother’s day 2021 to give the most special woman in your life.

 

1. Preserved flowers

Instead of spending hundreds on a fresh bouquet that will wilt the very next day, invest in something that can last for a much longer time. Preserved flowers are either encased in a dainty glass dome, preserved in resin or dried and framed in beautiful wall décor.

 

Not only will your mom feel special on Mother’s Day, but she can also reminisce that precious moment for years to come.

 

2. DIY art pieces

Moms support their children’s passions and talents unlike anyone else. It always fills them with so much pride when they receive a piece of art made by their children. Mothers appreciate more than the actual outcome of the art. It is the time and dedication they know their children spent on crafting the piece just for them.

 

So when thinking about unique gifts for mother’s day 2021, keep in mind that personalized gifts like that are priceless and irreplaceable in a mom’s heart.

 

3. Custom portraits

There is nothing moms love more than memories frozen in time through photos. But because it’s Mother’s Day, give her something more special than just a regular photo of her kids.

 

Love and Bub customize kids’ portraits without the hassle. Simply send a photo of who you want the subject of the portrait to be, select a background, and leave it to them to customize a special portrait just for mom. Here are their top portrait designs:

 

 

Mothers appreciate unique gifts for mother’s day 2021 as long as they can feel the love and thoughtfulness that echo from it. But on a very special day dedicated just for her, a beautiful, personalized portrait of her most prized treasures — her children, is a gift she will hold close to her heart forever.

Top 5 Best Gifts For 1-Year Olds - Love and Bub Artworks

Top 5 Best Gifts For 1-Year Olds

At one point or another, every parent has experienced a difficult time in choosing the perfect toy to give their little ones. We've selected the 5 best gifts for 1 year old children on this article.

Gund Plushed Toys for boys and girls

Gund Plushed Toys for boys and girls

It’s no secret that little ones love their cuddly pals. After all, what’s not to love? But dig a little deeper and you’ll find that these imaginary companions play a more vital role in child development than you may think. A stuffed toy or plushed toy is a toy doll with an outer fabric sewn from a textile and stuffed with flexible material.

These toy dolls in different size play a vital role in the day to day activities of our little ones from the day they start to see, walk, and even up until they grow old as adults.

Why??? It's simple.
• They provide much-needed comfort
• They help develop social skills
• They foster language development
• They encourage compassion and empathy
• They help build confidence
• They help manage emotions


Magic Cube

Magic Cube

This educational toy teaches how sounds combine. Being a parent means keeping little bottoms dry and clean but theres more to that.

Introduce your little one to inspiring music and interactive play with the fun Mozart Magic Cube. Perfect for all ages, the Mozart Magic Cube inspires creativity and interactive play while teaching how sounds combine to create eight classical music masterpieces by the master composer. With a touch of a button, this interactive cube lets your child add or subtract from any combination of five different instruments.


Learning Walker

VTech Sit-to-Stand Learning Walker (Frustration Free Packaging)

Have you ever heard of the saying "Big things come from small beginnings"? Well, that is true. Before we learned how to run, we learned how to walk. But before walking, we learned how to stand and before that, crawl.

From baby steps to big steps, the Sit-to-Stand Learning Walker by VTech helps your baby develop from a crawler to a walker through adaptive technology. It offers endless fun that will stimulate your baby’s learning and develop their motor skills. It keeps your baby on track teaching shapes, colors, animals, music and more!


Baby Stroller

Gund Plushed Toys for boys and girls

We all know what a stroller is but do you really need one?

The stroller is ultimately for YOU (the parent), not the baby. Parents use strollers so they can take a walk around the neighborhood without needing to carry their 21 lb child in their arms. At home around the house, you don't need to carry the little one around a lot. And for outgoing families, the stroller is their savior! When moving, it distracts the little ones and prevents them from being fussy and even make them fall asleep.


Custom Baby Portrait
Looking for a unique gift? Have a baby photo transformed into custom modern canvas portrait. The birth of your baby is the most memorable day of your life, and now your most prized baby photographs can be transformed into a eye catching, show-stopping canvas portraits. Love and Bub will transform your photograph into a stunning artwork which you can cherish for life!

Top 10 Must-Have Essentials for Newborn Nursery for 2021 - Love and Bub Artworks

Top 10 Must-Have Essentials for Newborn Nursery for 2021


What do I need for a newborn baby? We hear this question asked a lot. So I'm are sharing a simple list to help you prepare for a new baby.

I've listed 2 lists below that covers the traditional and non-traditional must-haves for parents with newborns. The first list are the things that parents have traditionally used and are still using up to today. And the second list contains must-have list for parents who wants to bring their parenting to the next level. (These lists below are in random order of importance or price)

TRADITIONAL MUST-HAVES

Diapers
Scratch-Proof Mittens
Onesies
Healing Ointment
Breast Milk Storage Bags
Stroller
Pacifiers
Baby Bottles
Car Seat
Sleep Sack


NON-TRADITIONAL MUST-HAVES

DRYING RACK

Bottle Dry Rack
A lot of your time as a parent of a newborn baby up to 2 years will be spent cleaning and sterilizing bottles, breast pump parts, and more. To remain sterilized after cleaning, they’ll have to air dry.

That’s where a drying rack will be critical. The most important feature in a drying rack is space for lots of small parts.


BABY MONITOR
Infant Optics DXR-8 Video Baby Monitor with Interchangeable Optical Lens

As wonderful as it would be to sit and stare at your baby’s face all day, it’s really not practical.

So for those times that you need to actually get stuff done in another room and your baby is peacefully sleeping, you’ll need a baby monitor. There are tons of baby monitors out in the market that can do lots of cool tricks, but ultimately something simple and affordable will work.


NEWBORN LOUNGER
Boppy Newborn Lounger

There will be times when you don’t want to put your baby in his or her crib or bassinet. So, you may just want to sit your baby down on the couch beside you. Your baby can sit comfortably in the lounger and it can also be used for tummy time.


BABY CARRIER
BABYBJÖRN BABY CARRIER ONE AIR

You won't stay all day at home so for the times you'd stay out for more than 30 minutes, having a baby carrier or sling will become very handy. These things allow you to be handsfree while also getting some skin to skin time with the little one.


BEDSIDE BASSINET
Milliard Bedside Bassinet Side Sleeper/Portable Infant Crib

If you plan on sleeping with your baby, then you’re probably in the market for a bassinet. I like those bassinets that are made lower beds because it's safer to sleep beside your babies, so be sure to check out the height specifications.


PORTABLE CHANGING TABLE
Costzon Baby Changing Table, Folding Diaper Station Nursery Organizer for Infant (Black)

This is best for those babies who loves going out. Portable changing tables with its shelves, makes changing diapers anywhere possible. You'll be able to store diapers, clothes, burp cloths, and more to take care of her without leaving the room.

It’s also great for when you need to relocate to somewhere else in the house and have everything you need to be accessible.


FLANNEL BURP CLOTHS
Luvable Friends Unisex Baby Cotton Flannel Burp Cloths

It's important for babies to burp or else they might choke or have difficulty in breathing. Your baby will also spit up and you will want to have a great burp cloth to catch it.

They are tri-fold and can expand out to cover more surface area. This is important when you’re trying to prevent your clothes from getting spit up on.

 

FINAL THOUGHTS ON NEWBORN ESSENTIALS
There are so many things that you can buy for your newborn and many of that you’ll end up not using but nonetheless are important to have.

I hope that I’ve provided a list of items that will be useful to you as you journey through motherhood.

Now that you have your Must-have list for your baby, it's time to take a picture of your cute baby and turn it into a stunning artwork! With Love and Bub, it's hassle free with satisfaction guarantee! We offer a wide-range of themes for baby's and older children from Studio photography-like themes up to Fantasy themes in an every growing selection! You can take a look at our themes below.

Good Ways To Keep Baby Memories Organized This 2021 - Love and Bub Artworks

Good Ways To Keep Baby Memories Organized This 2021

We are in the generation that has grown up with smartphones in our pockets — even 2 year olds have tablets. We are living in a world that can document literally anything if we want to and so why not do it properly?

So far people mostly are used to documenting their lives for social media — weekend brunch or that great hike or being better at baking than our friends.

Why do you need to document my memories properly? What's in it for you?
It will benefit you, your family, and people you will never meet. By doing so, in the future you can show these raw, vulnerable moments to people that need to see them — whether a child, a friend, or even a complete stranger. It might even get you that dream job or a date with your crush! 😉

WARNING:
This article could help you in preserving yours and/or your family's memory only if you commit to it. Like any other goal like losing weight or getting an A+ at school requires a lot of effort, action, and commitment.

So after reading the article, ask yourself "AM I COMMITTED TO PRESERVING MY MEMORIES THE RIGHT WAY?"

1. Buy a Memory Box

Time can pass in the blink of an eye. These simple boxes keep the small important things in your life. It doesn't have to be anything fancy, but a plastic box works best. You and your child can decorate the box to make it extra personal. It's also good if the box is portable and has a lid, to make sure everything is contained and protected from the elements. There are many kinds of memory boxes out there, below are a few of them:

Wooden Type

Plastic Type

Cardboard Type

Solid Metal Type

If you think your child has created something worth keeping, it can go straight in the box, which can then be stored in a closet or somewhere else that's out of reach, lessening the chance that it will lose its purpose and become a junk box. You may need multiple boxes though. I've added below a couple of great memory boxes that you can buy and give as a gift.

2. Invest in a Photo Book

There's a difference between a photo album and a photo book.

A photo album

A photo book

For one, photo albums can lead to loose pictures all over the place. A neater and less expensive alternative is a photo book, where you can arrange all of your pictures printed on pages and bound in an actual hardcover. They take up less space and aren't as clunky.

Photo books are best for those people who wants to embrace the new way of preserving memories. It's not going to work for everyone but I recommend you try getting one. I've sourced the internet to find ideal places where you can buy quality photo books. Buy them below.

Pro Tip: You can create your personalized Photo Book using Canva and have them print it for you! This feature of Canva just makes it easier for everyone to print their memories! You can both post your Images edited in Canva and you can have them printed at the same time!

3. Buy Wall Frames for Pieces of Artwork

Why not? I mean you store all these images in your phone, in your laptop, in your social accounts, why not print your favorite ones, those with sentimental memory value, and immortalize them on a canvas print?

Yes, we recommend you turn your favorite photos into canvas portraits. We take more photos today than ever before. But when do we look at them? Whether you need large picture frames to put above the sofa or small ones for a gallery wall in the hall, having a portrait canvas saves memories from photos of your childhood up to your retirement age.
