Spoil Your Valentine with Melitta!

You know the drill...wake up, take a shower, get dressed, go to work, come home, rinse and repeat. Thankfully, there is one thing to get you up and going, with a smile on your face...and that is coffee!! Not just any coffee will do for the early morning grind (coffe grind that is, lol), what really makes you happy if you're a coffee drinker is an amazing, delicious, aromatic coffee. You know, the kind that brings a smile to your face. Melitta is that coffee for me.

Melitta sells a wide array of freshly ground coffees, and they sell pods for the single cup brewers too! I recently tried their Vienna Dark Roast coffee. Truthfully, I'm usually a medium roast gal, but this was so so good, and it didn't have an acidic bitterness to it (the reason I usually don't like a dark roast). And smell good in the brewer??? Mmmhmmmhmmm, have no doubt, this coffee did bring that happy morning smile to my face.

Melitta has been brewing coffee since the early 1900's, They know about coffee... boy, do they.

Coffee isn't the only thing they sell. Melitta also has coffee pots,

and coffee grinders. I'm a big fan of grinding beans here lately. The smell alone gets me all fired up and ready to enjoy a hot cup of java.

There are other great coffee items for sale too. Percolaters, kettles, pour over coffee makers, espresso makers... I could go on. :)

My thought here is that coffee lovers REALLY love their coffee, so why not order a special appliance for them from Melitta that you know they're going to love, add a bag of coffee (they've got tons of flavors/roasts to choose from and rack up those cupid points!  Another big plus, every time your true love fires up their good morning coffee, they're going to think of you. :)

Record the First Time You Hear Baby's Precious Heartbeat!

It's hard to find the right gift for the baby shower if the expectant mom hasn't made a registry. It's even more difficult if the person you're buying for already has everything, Mmm hmm, we all know someone like that, don't we? The gal who says she wants something but then goes out and buys it before anyone else can. Well now I've found a great solution: The My Baby's Heartbeat plush is as cute as it can be, and it allows you to record those first baby heartbeats know, the ones that make your own heart skip a  beat when you first hear them. :)

The recording device is small, but it works like a charm. You can see it in the picture above. I think this is such a unique gift idea, and what mom and dad wouldn't love to have that happy moment when they first hear their child's heartbeat, recorded for prosterity? 

We selected the giraffe for the gift we are going to give, and he's a little beauty. There are other selections too, and you can see some of them in the photo above.

My Baby’s Heartbeat Bear Captures Milestone Pregnancy Moment

There’s nothing more awe-inspiring for expecting parents than the sound of their baby’s heartbeat, heard for the first time during an ultrasound appointment.  Now this milestone moment can be preserved forever thanks to the ultimate pregnancy keepsake: My Baby’s Heartbeat Bear.This innovative gift provides everything needed to capture that precious sound and create a permanent treasure.

The My Baby’s Heartbeat Bear kit comes with an adorable stuffed animal and a red “heart” recorder.   Simply take the recorder to your ultrasound appointment and easily switch it on to capture 20 seconds of baby’s heartbeat.  (If you have already recorded the heartbeat on your phone or on a CD, it can be transferred to the heart recorder.)Then, unfasten the Velcro closure on the back of the stuffed animal, insert the recorder into the interior drawstring pouch, knot the pouch, and finally re-fasten the Velcro.  To listen to the heartbeat, simply press on the animal.  To stop, press again, or simply wait 20 seconds.

Monkeys and hippos and bears…oh my!  There are more than 16 cute creatures to choose from, all of them crafted from the softest, highest quality fleece-like material and polyfill.My Baby’s Heartbeat Bear makes an excellent shower gift, not to mention a great addition to your nursery décor. Safe for children 3 and older, My Baby’s Heartbeat Bear will also become a source of fascination for growing kids who love to know what they were like as babies.

My Baby’s Heartbeat Bear is the brainchild of Purusha Rivera, a mom of 12-year-old twins and a two year old, who is passionate about her work as a registered diagnostic medical sonographer specialized in Ob/Gyn.She created the bears as part of her desire to make the ultrasound experience as special as it can be, and her patients loved the idea.  Many of them even purchased extras for the grandparents-to-be.   Some have older siblings record messages of welcome for the baby.  (Extra heart recorders can be purchased separately.)

My Baby’s Heartbeat Bear retails for $35 and is available at many 3D and 4D ultrasound studios across the country.  Locate one near you, or purchase online at
