The Perfect Gifts for Christmas – Shop New Orleans!

www.nolababybump.comBY LEANNE

It’s never been easier to find the perfect Christmas present for a good price with online shopping and mega-chain stores, but I personally don’t see the fun and excitement in that at all.  When shopping for my loved ones, the hunt is what makes it so special in the end.  Then, you have a story to tell after they’ve opened it, “You’ll never believe how I found this...”  Sure there’s some pride in ordering exactly what someone wants for a sweet deal, but isn’t there just as much joy if not more in walking into a local shop and being drawn to one item on the shelf because it reminds you so much of the person you were shopping for.  It may or may not be what they asked for, but it’s a gift and it’s unique!

That experience is exactly what you’ll find at Baby Bump Maternity and some other local stores that we think you’ll love!  Get your loved ones a gift that’s truly New Orleans and give back to our wonderful city by shopping at a locally owned store.  Consider getting someone on your list a little treasure from one of these great spots!
