babies & blocks

Every time I turn around, another friend of mine is pregnant. At least, that’s what it seems like. In preparation for the windfall of baby showers in my near future, I’ve been on the lookout for some hip items to give to my equally hip friends. I was most excited when I came across the awesome wood alphabet blocks from Delaware type foundry House Industries.

Check out these Neutraface Slab blocks. Neutraface is one of my favorite fonts of late… so how can I possibly resist?

These PLINC blocks are equally awesome.

And last but certainly not least are these Alexander Girard blocks. Gorgeous, no?

What hip baby gifts have you seen around the internet lately?

  1. Wow gorgeous! I don't think I've ever seen such cool baby blocks. I agree Melissa & Doug have nice, high quality products for kids.

  2. Maybe it's just my wedding-obsession, but I see these blocks and think "Wouldn't those make fantastic wedding decor?!" Like … table letters? or something?

  3. Thanks for the awesome ideas – I just purchased 4 baby gifts the other day and am in need of new ideas!
