Get Showered with Love! April 1-15

Welcome to the [3rd Annual] Showered With Love Event hosted by the Lindsey Blogs and Viva Veltoro! 

We all know that April Showers bring May Flowers, but did you know that some of your favorite bloggers have come together throw a huge Shower of our own – a virtual Baby Shower! The Showered with Love Event will run from April 1-15, giving you plenty of time to enter all of the great Baby Shower inspired giveaways, in the linky below, and don't miss the two amazing Grand Prizes from our hosts - a Combi Go and Grow Walker, Play Table and Chairs on Lindsey Blogs and an amazing New Baby Prize Package featuring products from Piyo Piyo, Lulujo, ZOOCCHINI, Poncho Baby, and Bitybean on Viva Veltoro

I have posted about baby essentials before, but really, these are some things that any soon-to-be-mommy should have. At this point, having been a mommy myself for over a year, I could add a couple of things to the list - like organic and 100% natural body washes and lotions to keep your little bundle healthy and happy, or - simply being practical here- diapers, because these cost a TON. 

So instead of just picking one thing, I'll let the winner decide for themselves what they need.

There will be two winners, each one will get $50 Gift Card to either Buy Buy Baby or Amazon (alternatively, if you would like to purchase organic clothing or something handmade from Etsy, we can make it $50 PayPal cash!)

a Rafflecopter giveaway

  71. I recently had triplets and I received some lovely and functional items for our babies. One item that has proven to me especially helpful for me were gift cards. With triplets diapers can be extremely expensive so I have been able to put these to good use. Clearly my friends who gave me gifts cards knew what they were doing. rene chartier (joan)
