Great Gifts for Mother's Day
"This is such a stylish bag," reports our mom-tester. "When I got pregnant I vowed never to be one of those moms toting around a bulky pink or blue bag, yet when Irealized how much I would actually have to carry, it was hard to find something big enough that didn't scream "diaper bag". This is a perfect solution. The Rebecca Denny bag totally fits the bill: it comes in beautiful patterns and fabrics that are soft to the touch, the inside (as well as outside pockets) are waterproof, which is great for clean-up, and there is enough room to store diapers, wipes, two bottles, a cell phone, your wallet, sunglasses, etc. It is perfect for everyday use and even better for short trips because the convenient outside pockets make it easy to reach for crayons or a book without rifling through everything else. All this without looking like a baby bag! What more could a hip mommy ask for?" $119.99

Sticks 'n Stones Stick Figures (Sticks n' Stones) We gave a T-Shirt with these two stick figures to a brand new second-time mom.

Mothership Diaper Backpack (Fleurville) Our new mom tester just raved about this bag. She had this to say, "I love the look of the bag. Itís so trendy looking that Iíd take this along anywhere as my only bag. Itís got plenty of pockets to put mom stuff in there too. Definitely could double as a travel bag for longer trips. The bottle pocket is very useful. Comes with portable changing pad, dirty diaper pouch and baby wipes box. I like the sleeve to store the changing pad it keeps the bag organized.
