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.
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.
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?

P.S. This was the first time I tried snapping photos of products with a drop cloth and our family’s new Nikon D60 SLR. I had a BLAST!
