10 Must Haves for your Buffalo Plaid Nursery

Going plaid could NEVER be bad!

Oh boy. (Insert eye roll here) There are so many bad rhymes I could have made with the word "Plaid", but I spared you. Kind of... you're welcome! As you may have noticed, Buffalo Plaid has been a trend this past year. It all started with lumberjack themed birthday parties, baby showers, on clothing, then holiday decor, and now it is all up in the baby and nursery business! 

In fact, the very first design I created for My Treasured Gifts was a buffalo plaid themed milestone blanket. It's been one of my top sellers, and that is NO mistake! Since this theme doesn't seem to be going away anytime soon, I thought I'd highlight some awesome nursery must-haves and baby accessories that you can use to make your little one's room and wardrobe that much more amazing! I sourced these products from a handful of super talented peeps on Etsy, so make sure you check out their products and shops!  

As you may see from the products below, this trend does not discriminate when it comes to gender. Both boys and girls can enjoy a little buffalo plaid action. I've seen this design in all combinations of red, black, pink, white, green and even mint green!

Item #1 - The Milestone Blanket

Buffalo Plaid Milestone Blanket Like I said earlier, this blanket is one of my top sellers. It features my original woodland animal characters and illustrations. Aren't they sweet? You can get this blanket in 2 sizes and 3 materials and all of them are super soft! Order a small blanket for swaddling or a large blanket for something that will grow with your child. You really can't go wrong! Made by yours truly of My Treasured Gifts and I currently have this design available in red and black, hunter green and pink and black. I do accept custom requests, so there really is NO excuse to not have this in your favorite color combo!


Item #2 - Custom Room Signs

These super adorable signs are made by the uber talented Jeannette of TrendeeTotsInteriors on Etsy. She has so many designs to match a large array of nursery themes. Here are a couple examples of her woodland themed name signs. They would go perfectly in any boy or girl's room. Each sign is 3D and hand made just for you from real high quality wood to give you a long lasting and durable product that your child will cherish for years to come!

Now this is one of the items that the Mom-to-Be agonizes over. We want something cute, but functional. We want it to hold everything we need, but we don't want to feel like we're lugging around a gigantic suitcase. I know I had the HARDEST time finding something I liked when I was expecting my first son. I window shopped for months until I decided to finally buy one. Well, with these bags made by Terry from louloubags on Etsy, you should have NO problem picking something out. Her gorgeous totes are made with an array of materials, include all kinds of pockets for your stashing pleasure and her attention to detail is top notch! I wish I had discovered Terry's shop back then, because I would have bought one right away!
