This next month is the royal wedding of Meghan Markle and Prince Harry. Not sure why, but I am obsessed when it comes to reading about them. Maybe it is because when I was on maternity leave I used to plop myself on the couch while my baby slept and binge watched Suits that Meghan starred in. (Good show by the way!) Or is it the little girl in me excited that someone is becoming a Princess? Either way, it is fun reading about the fame, royalty, drama, etc!
As you are probably aware, spring is the start of wedding season. Market on Oak has all your gift needs including several choices of cards!
When I got married I loved getting gifts that had my new name or “Mr. & Mrs”. I think I walked around in a tank top that said wifey and felt so “cool” those first few months. That is why I love these matching coffee mugs and pillow cases. How unique and cute!
One thing that would make a great gift to anyone planning a wedding is this card box. Plus, the bride and groom can leave mementos in it for the years after to look back on. Also, we have beautiful guest books, frames and signs as well!
Okay now that you have made it this far we need to set some things straight... Would you REALLY want to be a royal? I mean.. Meghan Markle "shocked" Britain when she didn't wear nylons with a skirt! And no more social media? So many rules and a ton of etiquette to follow. BUT, you have millions in the bank, people waiting on you, travel for free, and many other perks.
With every baby shower there is always a registry somewhere. It will include the new baby essentials; pacifiers, bottles, bouncer, pack n’ play, crib sheets, ETC. What about if you want to get something unique though? Something you won’t need to pack with a gift receipt “in case they get more than one”. That is where Market on Oak comes in! We have a newly added baby section that has the perfect shower gifts.
You can never have too many cute baby clothes! Plus we have various sizes. I noticed when we had our baby girl we got so many newborn and 0-3 month clothes. Then our baby would have a growth spurt and off to the store we went for more clothes. Mom’s will appreciate those 9-12 or even 24 month outfits! Here is just a sample of what we have in stock.
Belly and Milestone Stickers:
These are super popular right now and I don’t see that going anyway anytime soon! It is a great way to capture your baby growing in that first year. One thing I wish I had done more was the milestone stickers! They are a great idea! First tooth, First Smile, First laugh, etc!
The below frame was one of my favorite shower gifts! It is hanging in our baby’s room and I still look at it every night wondering HOW time has gone by this fast. In that first year, it is amazing how much a baby changes from month to month. This makes a wonderful gift! It also goes great with the belly stickers!
We also have many other cute frames to choose from!
Some moms are really picky when it comes to decorating the nursery so the best advice is to go for smaller signs. Luckily we have a great selection that would go perfect in any nursery! How adorable are these signs? More at the store! Come on in!
Gifts for the Mom
As expecting parents, you get SO many gifts for the new baby. Do not forget about the person who grew a human, gained stretch marks, endured mood swings, morning sickness and then had to push out a baby. All of that, followed by sleepless nights and walking around feeling like a deflated balloon! (If you have had a baby, you know this feeling!) That mama deserves a little something! We have perfect gifts for them too!
We have many options for lotions, hand creams and body washes by Thymes which is made here in Minneapolis. My absolute favorite fragrance at the moment is the Neroli Sol.
We also have high quality hand creams by our Capri Blue line. They smell amazing!
Cute but FUNCTIONAL shirts
What I mean by functional are cute longer shirts new moms can wear with leggings! Not only that, but shirts with buttons and zippers are also a plus! I lived in hoodies, button-up shirts and leggings those first few months. It is amazing how a cute outfit can change how you feel! "Hey I might look ragged tired, messy hair, haven't showered, BUT how adorable is this shirt from Market on Oak!? I actually feel cute!" - A new mom you gift with a shirt from our store. ;)
Coffee mugs and other "Mom attire"
Caffeine is a mom's best friend! And these mugs would go perfect in any moms' hand! Also, these hats sum up mom life perfectly!
Come check out Market on Oak and see what we can provide for that next baby shower you will be attending!
What better way to get the word out about Market on Oak than attend local events with other vendors? That is exactly what we did this past weekend! The Charthouse in Lakeville featured live music, local vendors and a chance for people to get their drink and shop on!
Set up was at 10:00am and the place started filling up. It was awesome seeing all the other businesses and what people carried. There were probably about thirty different businesses in attendance. By noon, everything was set and ready to go!
The weather wasn’t the greatest outside so it was nice for people to have the option to do something a little different like this on their Saturday indoors! There was even live music which was a nice touch! I know my daughter loved that when she came to see her momma for a little bit!
Could not keep up with this one. She was way too excited about all our stuff! ;)
Our most popular item was this gorgeous grey floral embroidered top. There was about a ten minute time span where they all sold out! We have ordered more for the store and even in red for a pop of color. Second to that, people loved our new Voluspa line of candles!
Overall, it was a great experience exhibiting our items at the Charthouse Sip n’ Shop! If you are near the area, I highly suggest going there for drinks and dinner. They have a great patio and great food!
