My daughters laughter carrying over from seats 7A and 7B was the perfect beginning to our three day Montreal gateway. Seeing them spend quality time warmed my heart, especially given their busy lives adulting as parents and career gals. The smile on this mama’s face started on that take-off flight and didn’t let-up until the return landing. This was bound to be one epic ‘business’ trip.
Summer in the city and once that humidity hits the pavement 'We The North' can’t wait to hit the cottage. The lake, the air, the chilled out vibe and ... the baby! Worry not, first time moms, preparation will guarantee country bliss. In other words, we’ve got you covered:
Summer Solstice - the longest day of the year - arrived June 21 and marked the true beginning of summer and a farewell to spring. It also has some new moms concerned about changing sleep patterns and sun exposure but as The Beatles famously sang:
“Here comes the sun, here comes the sun, and I say it’s alright, little darling...”.
This Father’s Day we toast all the dads out there - the new ones for all the growing that awaits them alongside their babies, and the established dads for all the giving, teaching, protecting and sustained love they provide. We are so used to speaking openly about the challenges and triumphs of motherhood and so rarely speak of the same from the perspective of fatherhood.
This weekend we hope the conversation widens and relaxes to embrace all the amazing wins of parenting. Here’s to you dads and to your unique, enduring presence in all our lives.
Here at Bonjour Baby Baskets we celebrate the beauty of motherhood and the joy of babies. We also feel an added sense of urgency in celebrating the source of us all - Mother Nature. We want the items you purchase to withstand play and many washes and still not be disposable. We want to nurture a generation that gets quality over quantity thus producing less waste. We want natural over plastic. From this Earth Day and everyday thereafter, we need to practice these tenants so that we leave a better legacy for today’s little ones.
We have been waiting and waiting till just the right moment to drop our baby delights fit for warmer climates. This year’s offerings are all about impeccable style for your baby. Before laid back late summer vibes infiltrate baby’s wardrobe, we are profiling the layers and classic silhouettes for those first outdoor excursions.
Happy Birthday to...us.
This March 17th our online baby basket boutique turns 5, and what an amazing journey it has been. As a thank you, check out below our special promotions and birthday giveaway. With that we bid you - HIGH FIVE!
Every year we pick a charity to support, where we feel that our donation can make an impact. This year we are thrilled to support Mamas For Mamas — a national charitable organization that supports mothers in crisis.
A happy mama makes a happy baby. Parenting certainly has its struggles but when basic needs can not be met, those struggles are tenfold. An organization like this is needed everywhere to help young families in need find surer footing into a safer, happier, future. We support their mission and work wholeheartedly, and are glad to have Bonjour Baby Baskets' mamas join their wider family of mamas on a mission.
If you are lucky, some afternoons the sun bathes your face and just like that whispers of awakening and renewal begin. With Spring around the corner, our sneak peek is the little fix to get you going in celebration of anticipated births and rebirths:
