If you’re new around here — first WELCOMEEEEE! Second, get ready to party because as some of you know, every year I do a Black Friday guide for my favorite small shops. And I always do so with exclusive deals, coupons and all the info! So I won’t talk much, but rather just dive right in.
In no particular order…
Seriously the cutest baby books you’ve ever friggin’ seen. I got my first baby book from them when Blake was about one years old and I literally, went back and did a baby book for her from them. They’re just unlike any other book I’ve every found. They have spots for notes, ask questions and of course pictures. I love them so much. We are currently in the middle of her toddler one and it’s my favorite thing to just take a few minutes every couple of weeks and write. They also have books for pregnancy, adoption, baby and all the things.
THE DEAL: Starting Friday morning, she will be releasing a limited amount of coupon uses for 25%-50% off!! She will be doing so on Instagram and in her newsletter. So make sure you’re subscribed to her newsletter, here (scroll to the bottom), and following @polkadotprintshop on Instagram.
So Blake has had a saranoni blanket since she was a teeny, tiny baby and has ALWAYS been obsessed. It’s the only blanket she will sleep with, it comes anywhere and everywhere with us and it’s the softest thing ever — even after all the washes. It holds up so well and guess what?! They even make ADULT SIZES. They come in tons of colors, textures, sizes and options. We are obsessed! I can’t recommend them enough, they’re the perfect gift for anyone.
THE DEAL: Starts Friday (tomorrow, first thing at 12ET). Select items will be up to 45% off and free shipping will be happenin’ on orders over $50.
Honestly, I can’t rave enough about Ubbi. Not only is their team absolutely incredible and do they have the best customer service, but their products are on point. They have everything from the must have bath toys to the cutest little lovies to the hands down best diaper pail ever. It’s the perfect place to hit for a gift for your own babe, your nieces, nephews, grandkids, the new Mom, seriously whoever with kids. You really can’t go wrong. Their little blanket buddy is the cutest, the blanket folds up into it and makes a little “buddy” and Blake thinks it’s the funniest thing ever when you stuff it inside.
THE DEAL: Check their site out to see what they’ve got going on 😉
You know that one toy that you’re like, holy cow, why didn’t I invest in this forever ago because well my kid plays with it forever and I can actually sit for 10 minutes without an interruption? Yeah? These are that toy. They’re little magnetic shapes that allow your babe to build, be creative and use their fine motor skills. They come in different color options and sets and Blake is seriously the biggest fan!
THE DEAL: Use the code “HOLIDAY15” for 15% off your purchase!
Y’all know I’m a big fan of Rubyclaire, seriously BIG fan. It’s the most incredible company, ran by some serious boss lady sisters and they have the cutest clothing at affordable prices. I’ve been a huge fan of theirs for years and they’ve been my biggest supporter which I am forever grateful for. A huge chunk of my closet is from their boutique and I just can’t stop — they’re so good. Plus they have some seriously good deals for Black Friday so read up and get shoppin’.

Okay, so I think this is just the cutest friggin’, greatest little present EVER. I actually got it for my cute little “niece” last year for a Christmas present and am probably going to do so again this year. I said “niece” in parenthesis because technically she’s my friend’s daughter, but same thing 😉 SO for those not familiar, BookRoo is the cutest subscription for books for your babes. You can put it in your little one’s name so they get mail every month and it comes in the sweetest little box, with each book individually wrapped for them to open!! Blake has had it forever too and I just love it so much.
THE DEAL: 25% off 3, 6 and 12 month subscriptions with the code “POBF2017”
You know that one piece in your house that you’re just totally obsessed with and so happy you purchased? This is White Loft for me. I actually, legit had three at one time. I finally gave one to my sister-in-law and now just have two, but I love them so dang much. They’re wooden growth chart rulers (and she makes canvas and burlap ones too) and they’re a MUST have staple in your home in my opinion. I use one as strictly decor (because the freak in me) and the other to actually track Blake’s little growth progress and I love it. **PS. She has a new font available for them now as an add on and it’s SO good.
THE DEAL: Now, she doesn’t do deals like this so take advantage of this one people! Grab 25% off site-wide.
When I found out that I was pregnant with Blake, after years of heartache and trying, one of the first things I ordered was a little rattle with the words “Baby Oakes” engraved on it from Bannor Toys. It’s seriously one of my most cherished things because it represents one of the happiest moments of our lives, a miracle and end of trial and hardship. It sits in Blake’s room now and I love looking at it. Their toys are timeless, incredibly well made and perfect for the modern babe.

For all of you ladies who have asked what in the world to get your guys — here it is people. I think these are just the greatest things. Marcus keeps one at his desk at work and has told me time and time again that he loves it because it has a “manly twist” compared to the pink one he had before 😉 Oak + Ink is a modern man’s stationary line and honestly, I use it too. I love to write my grocery lists on it and keep a pad in my car as well. Seriously — get your hands on one of these, it’s a perfect stocking stuffer or little gift for the guy in your life.
THE DEAL: Use the code “OAKESGIFT” for 15% off your total purchase.
Again, a shop that has supported me from the beginning and that I fall in love with over and over again. Think memories, keepsakes and all the feels for your babe, wedding, pregnancy and all the life events in between. Pearhead makes beautiful frames, books, albums, chalkboards and stickers to help create, lasting memories.
THE DEAL: Check their site out to see what they’ve got going on — there are some GOODIES!
Zoli makes one of my favorite sippy cups for Blake. They actually have a little ball in the bottom that helps get out ALL of the juice without all the tipping and she loves that it has a straw. They make all sorts of cool stuff like this for babes; snack containers, gummy teething stick (which was Blake’s FAVORITE as a baby), the cutest lunch boxes, backpacks and everything in between.
THE DEAL: I’ve got SUCH a good deal for y’all, grab 25% off your total purchase with the code “OAKESGG20”
I remember when Gathre mats first came out, it was under a different name and I had one of their first mats with Love Taza, it was yellow plaid and looked like a picnic mat — still has it and I love it. Anyways, from day one I thought it was such a brilliant idea!! It’s a mat you can literally wipe clean, spray off, whatever, perfect for all the baby activities, picnics, diaper changes and everything in between. It’s seriously brilliant and we use ours 3-4 times a week, so worth every penny!
THE DEAL: 25% off ALL items, no code needed, excluding the Studio McGee Collection.
Blake has a “lovie”, AKA: a slumberkin. It’s not really white anymore, still just as soft as before and well — it goes EVERYWHERE with us. It’s been to Doctor’s appointments with her, naps, trips, car rides, the park and just about every place you can imagine. It’s her little comfort thing and she loves it so much. I can’t rave about Slumberkins enough, again we’ve been with them since day one and I think they’re the most incredible company. Not to mention, to see how far they’ve come is amazing! They have tons of options, colors and even books with their Slumberkins now!
THE DEAL: 15% off your total purchase Friday-Monday OR if you sign up for their newsletter, STAT – you can get a code for 20% off Friday morning.
