For Her: Flowers for Her Hair

Welcome to the Valentine’s Day Gift Guide on Traveling with Baby.  From now until February 14th, you’ll find great Valentine’s gift ideas for the whole family.  You’ll even have the opportunity to win some of the products featured on the Gift Guide–isn’t that lovely?


We don’t yet have a daughter, but the cute hair accessories from Florida-based company Lady Bugs n’ Butterflies certainly makes me wish that I had a little princess whose hair I could brush and braid.

Look at these adorable clips they sent me!  My nieces are going to look so stinkin’ cute with these pretty clips in their hair.

You can pick any style you like (from crocheted fruit and critters to delicate flowers from gauzy ribbon), and then customize the accessory based on the girl’s age or hair type.

They have a Big Girl pony O (the type of ponytail holders that I use in my hair), toddler pony O, a 1 3/4″ alligator clips, a 1 1/2″ toddler snappy clip, a 1 1/4″ infant snappy clip, and a 2″ french barrette.  Most styles are available in different colors–so you can design one for that princess dress for a special occasion.

I love this one.  It’s the Christine Diane in aqua, also available in 8 other colors.

And, here’s the back in an alligator pinch clip.  The ribbon conceals all the visible parts of the metallic clip.

It’s soooo cute and petite.  Perfect for a little lady, or a big lady who likes dainty little hair accessories.  I can see these becoming all the rage among the 20-something crowd.

This is the lovely Florence Eileen in white, among 5 other color options.  This dainty dragonfly clip has hand sewn beads on the eyes, tail, and sequined wings (also covered in sheer gauzy fabric).  As delicate as it looks, the stitching is strong, and it looks like it would hold up to the most fidgety little girl.

The Florence Eileen is featured in the 1 and 1/4 inch infant snappy clip.  Although the white ribbon covers up the metal, I think the delicate detail of the dragonfly would have shown up better  if they’d simply covered the clip in a clear or opaque white silicone to prevent slipping in the hair.  Even so, I really love this design!

If you know of any brides who are wedding planning, Lady Bugs n’ Butterflies has some great options for little flower girls.

Hair clips are $7 with the headbands ranging up to $16.  They have styles ranging from a spotted cow to pink ballerina slippers and a goldfish.

YOUR TURN: What would be your ideal accessory for a little girls’ hair?


One (1) winner will receive a hair  accessory of choice from Lady Bugs n’ Butterflies (retail value $16).

  11. These are so adorable and I love the petite size.

  12. Paige has a whole lot of hair. Since her bangs are pretty much grown out now, I like chunkier hair clips, I’ve found some clips that have a piece of velcro on the underside and that really acts as a no slip.

    Ladybugs N Butterflies has some adorable clips. I love the crocheted clippies. Then I see the Nicole Rochelle and it’s so sweet and precious. I really like that this site gives you the option for the clippy type. Smart!

    BTW, great photos!
