Compliments of Baby Heist

We started with our Regular boutique items at, we found unique items that we knew would help out the every day mom. We struggled to convince our online customers to test boutique products that were new or redesigned and moving into the market, being an retailer you don’t get the touch and feel for a product so we knew that a promotional discount site was the key answer. Moms know best and the best advertising is getting your product out there to be tested and loved.

Some great must haves for baby showers are DK Baby Designs Minky Blankets, and the DK Minky Grande for the mommies and daddies. We never forget the dads – Moms love to buy the Dads matching shirts and ties with the kids.
