Bunnies by the Bay

Created by two sisters, this isn’t just a brand – Bunnies by the Bay is a product that literally came to be out of tragedy (read their full story here) and is a true example of what magic can lie behind a product if people put love and passion into it. 
 
Bunnies by the Bay provides timeless baby gifts with a soft bunny touch just in time for the holidays. From lovies and buddy blankets to adorable stuffed animals, their gifts will be cherished “hareloom” possessions (parents may wish to get multiples in case a lovie gets lost!). An added touch of personalization with an embroidered name makes the gifts even more special.

Why we love it?

Oh my goodness these products are the sweetest and truly capture all of the comfy and cozy “feels” that new babies bring. I love giving baby gifts, and these are the sweetest and best gift ideas for new babies that I’ve seen. They’ll be treasured by both mama and baby, I promise you! The story behind this brand makes me love it even more – I’ve even added a trip to “Cricket Island” to my travel bucket-list as it must be truly magical to have inspired these amazing products.
