Be First to Shop’s Semi-Annual Stroll in Style Event!

Thursday, September 18th, 2014 is about to launch its Semi-Annual Stroll in Style event, and they’re giving Parents and American Baby readers an exclusive opportunity to get in the door before the event officially begins on Monday, September 22.

With steals on Stokke strollers, BabyBjörn baby carriers, Danzo diaper bags, and Aden + Anais swaddles, you’ll want to get in early! And for every purchase made in the Stroll in Style event, a portion of the proceeds will be donated to Children’s Health Fund.

Melissa Keswin, GILT Director of Baby and Kids, offers these shopping tips:

  • Two-Stroller Minimum “If you’re gearing up for baby, you’ll need two strollers: One for short trips or when you’re traveling, and one for strolling longer distances. The first should be super-light and easy to fold — Maclaren is a favorite here — and the second should be sturdy and easy to maneuver, like Stokke, with its taller frame and comfortable seat.”
  • The #1 Must-Have for Babies “Every baby needs an Aden + Anais blanket, and it will likely be your most utilized item. It’s perfect for swaddling, for tummy time, for shading your baby from the sun, and more. Plus, the beloved brand now makes even more essentials like bibs and buntings.”
  • The Baby Carrier “Having a carrier is super helpful when you’re out and about, especially when you have more than one child and need to be hands-free! One of my favorites — and of many celeb parents too – is by BabyBjörn. Their carriers are ergonomically correct, incredibly comfortable, inward and outward facing, and can be used from birth to age 3.”

Here’s an example of the discounts in the Stroll in Style event:

  • Danzo Hobo Diaper Bag- GILT Price: $150, Original Retail: $295
  • BabyBjorn Baby Carrier- GILT Price: $80, Original Retail: $100

  • Wifi Baby Camera- GILT Price: $205, Original Retail: $260

  • Britax USA Agile 2013 Stroller- GILT Price: $179, Original Retail: $250

  • JJ Cole Urban BundleMe Infant- GILT Price: $42, Original Retail: $59.95

Get Ready, Get Set, SHOP!

American Baby’s Baby Booty: Win a Easter Basket Worth Hundreds of Dollars!

Tuesday, February 26th, 2013

Easter is kind of a big deal in our house. Honestly? It’s our biggest party of the year. We have an open house for about 30 guests, including a fleet of kids, who pose for an annual Easter portrait on our stoop. (Like the one from last year, below!)

A coworker asked if I do an Easter-egg hunt and I had to admit, “only sometimes.” Mostly I mark the holiday with cute outfits for Grace, now 10, and Joe, now 7. And big Easter baskets for them as well. For that reason, I was pretty psyched to learn that there’s an entire Easter-specific sale. It went live this week and is filled with photo-ready clothes and stuff that any Easter Bunny would be happy to give! (And all at good discounts, since that’s the Gilt way!)

The sale stays up until Easter at the end of March. But if you want to try your luck at a most-fabulous giveaway, then leave a comment below, up to one a day between now and the end of the day on Wednesday, March 6. We’ll pick two random winners, and will give one lucky duck a girl-themed basket worth $561 (with Giddy Giddy hair clips, a tea set from Alex Toys, and much more), and another a boy-themed basket worth $425 (with a Tom and Drew bow tie, set of bunny masks from Mahalo, and much more). No complaining, moms of boys: We all know their stuff costs less than those frilly girl things. Both baskets have the cute “Hoppy Easter” banner, which sells on the site for $35. Which reminds me, maybe I will do more in the way of decorating and activities this year. Any suggestions for how to pull off an indoor Easter-egg hunt that doesn’t turn into a wild stampede? Or is chaos the point? Leave a comment and help me out, and also maybe win a glorious amount of Easter treats. To that end, also tell us whether you have a little girl, boy, or both.
