Gifts For The Urban Baby~ Tuesday, Jun 3 2008 

Urban Babies Wear Black - Click Image to Close

Urban babies arrive on earth just like all babies. It is how they live that makes them different…….or Urban. They live in a major city such as New York, LA, Chicago, San Francisco. Their parents are ad executives, producers, International bankers, or entrepreneurs. They prefer Miro over Monet, and sushi to sausage. Dad wears Armani and Mom shops at Barney’s. The Urban Baby learns to ride a bike on Michigan Avenue, applies for private school at birth, and the doorman’s name is one of the first words he or she learns. Urban Baby homes are sans plaid, unless it is a Burberry plaid. There is no toile or a lazy boy to be found. This type of baby needs a different kind of gift. Perhaps something a bit edgy, certainly trendy, always In Style, must be fine quality, and Carters just won’t do. If you know an Urban Baby that has just been born, take a peek a boo at the following gift suggestions.
