Over here at NikkiDesigns we are relishing everything baby with the arrival of a new family member this past month. A new baby means having an excuse to peruse through those baby aisles in the guise of buying gifts and with an eco-conscious mother to buy for we had to be thoughtful in our selections. It’s not hard to find safe green choices for the mothers and babies out there but it does take a little bit of extra effort. But what new mother wouldn’t be impressed with the thoughtfulness that goes into buying an eco-friendly gift. To help you out with your next baby shower purchase, we’ve compiled a little collage of eco-friendly gifts for mother and baby to get you started. ecobaby
