In 2012, I commissioned my sweet friend and Italy amica, Emma Weisman, for the best baby shower gift ever. I asked Emma to create this beautiful, custom drawing for Alexandria’s nursery. I cannot brag on Emma enough – she did a fantastic job on this! The colors are so beautiful and so vibrant; I don’t think my explanation can do it justice.
Naturally, when Kristin found out she was pregnant, I commissioned a sketch for her sweet baby, too! I’ve seen the sketch, and I CANNOT wait to see how it turns out. I love that Emma personalizes the whole thing to things and experiences that are relevant to each family. I think it’s a great way to teach little ones about their ABCs, too!
And now, I have her doing one for Elizabeth. Yep, I’m a repeat customer and a BIG TIME believer. The best part? She’ll even frame and mail them across the country for me…
Emma and I go way, way back. Like 10 years back. OH MY GOD. I’ve known Emma for TEN YEARS?! Ten years ago, we were two American students studying in Florence, Italy… and over a shared love of Chinese food for Thanksgiving, we were bonded for life. Because there’s some things that only sharing life in a foreign country can do.
If you’re in the market for the most unique and best baby shower gift, Emma is the best recommendation I can give you! I always like to have a special and unique gift to celebrate certain milestones, and this is now my go-to baby gift!
Tell Emma I sent you! 😉
