First Impressions Baby Apparel: Review and Giveaway

This coming weekend, we are throwing a baby shower in honor of my sister-in-law (don’t worry, it’s not a surprise!).  Looking through her registry, there are so many cute items for my soon to be niece that I had a hard time selecting a gift that would be  beautiful, functional and unique.   I know that my niece will need clothes (as her closest sibling is almost 6 years old), so I was delighted to try out the sets from First Impressions.  About the brand:

First Impressions is a collection of classic clothing for newborns and infants featuring sweet, traditional designs, fine fabrics and time-honored details, with an emphasis on special occasion dressing. The charm and refinement of First Impressions clothing and matching accessories make it a favorite gift choice.  First Impressions collections are available exclusively at over 800 Macy’s stores nationwide and online at

The gift set I had the opportunity to sample included an outfit from the Satin Hanger Collection, a five-piece layette set from the Everyday Value Collection and an adorable plush animal.  When I opened the box, my eye immediately went to the outfit in the Satin Hanger Collection (which obviously hangs on a sating hanger, ha!).  It is the most adorable gray dress with embellishments and white cotton capri pants.  The layette set is so incredibly soft and the plush doll finishes off the gift with a cuddly touch!

Combining the outfits and doll will make a cute and memorable baby shower gift!  I can’t wait for this weekend!
