It is not often that I receive presents, considering the dimunitive social life that I lead. And, in all honesty, it’d never occur to me to get my stuff personalized. So, when I was sent an exquisite set comprising of a napkin and a bib, etched with Darling’s name on it, I can’t say I wasnt thrilled.
A personalised gift speaks volumes. It symbolises the effort you take to make someone feel special. And that’s just what I felt when I became the recipient of my baby’s first ever personalised baby essential ☺
✔ The napkin is made of terrycloth hence absorbs water nicely when Darling steps fresh out of his bath (usually in my arms, i.e.).
✔ I use the napkin as towel at the moment since it wraps well around Darling’s tiny body. Yes, its sizable.
✔ I love it’s relucent green hue, bordered with a xanthous periphery.
✔ Darling is a year old, which means that I have introduced solids and finger foods to him. This, of course, translates into messy mouth and hands. The bib is roomy enough to reach his belly button and I can thoroughly wipe his palms, fingers and lips clean. The bib, too, is of terrycloth fabric.
✔ The emblematic ‘dad’s lion’ etched on the bib does little to reduce hubster’s mollycoddling Darling 🙄. It’s adorable, actually!
✔ The sensible velcro at the ends of the bib are a relief since I’ve had enough trouble struggling with tying knots when my eldest two were younger.
❌ I suggest using a fabric softener after handwashing the bib and the napkin. They tend to become mildly harsh after normal wash.
Verdict: What gladdens me is that I can treasure Darling’s name on his bathing essentials forever. Even when he’s way ahead of his childhood phase, in sha Allah. This is why it also serves as a great gifting concept. Who wouldn’t be smitten with their names embossed on souvenirs?

I had resolved to write this blog post after children’s ongoing exams are done with. Notwithstanding the writer’s bug that bites me ever so often though, here I am with this review.
Do tell me if this review gets you interested and fascinated into buying personalised stuffs. Your feedbacks are what keeps me going.
Au revoir 💟
