Perfect for Your Favorite Prince or Princess

30 Apr

april-royal-robe One of the most traditional gifts for children is something incredibly simple and has been a mainstay gift for generations.  Yes, it’s a little monogrammed bathrobe.  There’s nothing cuter than a child in a robe, is there? Robes can easily become a child’s favorite clothing item as they are perfect on a cold night when snuggling on the couch, fun to wear on Christmas morning, great for stepping out of a bath or out of a pool and cozy just to hang out in.

The bathrobe for kids has certainly made a resurgence – in a huge way – this week!  Perhaps you’ve seen the press?  The adorable Prince George was photographed in his little robe when he met visiting U.S. President Barack Obama. It was reported that the prince was able to stay up 15 minutes past his bedtime in order to meet the President.  Wearing pajamas, slippers and his little white monogrammed bathrobe, it was the robe that was the hit of the night!

The robe featured blue piping and the embroidered name George and it really instantly became a sensation.  Prince George is a little fashion trendsetter! The robe sold out right away and it’s no wonder as the prince stole the show that night at Kensington Palace.

At The Stationery Studio, we have been selling wonderful velour hooded bathrobes for children for over 20 years.  The robes look very similar to the one Prince George was photographed wearing.  Our robes are white with your choice of trim, thread, size and a script or block embroidered personalization.  They are an adorable robe to make bath time or beach time a special time.   Made in the U.S.A. from the finest 100% Turkish cotton terry velour, our fabric is more durable and softer than any other cotton terry and the kids love it.

A great gift for new babies and kids of all ages, this little bathrobe is indeed fit for your favorite prince or princess!

Best wishes,

Renee

Winter Fun in the Kitchen

26 Jan

jan-cooking-001aI just love a cold weekend day when I’m home and can spend some time in the kitchen. It’s the perfect time to cook pots of soups, stew, spaghetti sauce and chili. I often cook large pots of these warm treats and freeze them in containers for quick lunches on cold days.

I also remember when my kids, now both in their 20’s, were home and would love to spend the day in the kitchen with me. They’d be right there, asking what they could do to help, being my official mixers, my rubber spatula lickers, my egg crackers and my buddies for the days.  And my two poodles were right there waiting for their treats too, never leaving our side!  The kids would especially love when we’d bake.  Over the years we’ve made endless batches of chocolate chip cookies, brownies and banana breads.

jan-cooking-002For younger moms, just starting to enjoy these precious times with their little cooks, we have some really fun gear that your kids will love to wear.  They will instantly will become your official chefs in training.  And the outfits will certainly make some wonderful memories, and great pictures!

Now that my kids are older, once the soups, sauces and treats are done, I package them up, freeze most of it, and send them off to college for my younger son or when he returns to school after break and I hand the treats off to my older son when we meet for dinner and he returns to his apartment in Chicago.  They still love to enjoy homemade soups and baked treats.

So enjoy these cold winter days.  Find some time to spend in the kitchen cooking your favorites and smelling the warm treats in the oven or on the stove.  Start your own traditions and find the recipes you and your family will love to enjoy.  The memories will be precious.

Happy Winter!
