Holiday Gifts - Shop Small This Holiday Season

I was out and about shopping yesterday in the small town that I live in.  I was so happy to see so many people out supporting local businesses.  I love that American Express created Small Business Saturday. While they changed their rules so online only businesses like mine can't participate, I still love to promote it and get out there and shop local!

While Maisey Mae products have been given at baby showers for years, we would love for you to think of us at other times of the year!  We have expanded our product line to include new gifts.  Prices range from $5.00 on up.

This year we have added some fun new holiday products.  Take a look at these adorable bibs!
For the entire holiday line up - click here!

We have also added a new blanket to our line.  Take a look at these great stroller blankets!  Perfect to keep little ones warm and cozy.

Did I mention that these gifts are all made in the USA?  

If you don't see exactly what you would like, just ask!  We can make you a custom blanket with any of the bib fabrics.

Hope you have a wonderful holiday season!

Holiday Season

It's hard to believe that Thanksgiving is next week.  Not sure where the time went!  We are so thankful because we are also going to be celebrating our son's 6th birthday.  He was born on Thanksgiving so it is always an extra special holiday for us.

As we gear up for the holiday shopping season, I wanted to share some fun new holiday items that we have this year.  We have lots of festive bibs and burp cloths to help celebrate the season.

Another great holiday gift this year are our great little fleece hats.  Perfect to keep little heads warm as the cold winter approaches.

Enjoy this holiday season!

All the best,

Thank You to Our Veterans

Today on Veterans Day I would like to take a moment to honor our veterans. I am especially grateful to those that paid the ultimate sacrifice protecting our country and keeping us safe. In addition, I would like to thank all of the hard working members of military - past and present.   As the daughter of a career Naval officer, Veterans Day has a special meaning to me.  While my dad didn't lose his life in battle, he did die of causes related to his service. Today I think of all of the families that have lost loved ones because of their service.  Here is one of my favorite pictures of my father.

Why Are Burp Cloths Such a Great Gift?

My best selling products are burp cloths.  Why are they such a great gift for new parents?  First of all, you can never have too many burp cloths with a newborn. Maisey Mae burp cloths are extra thick and made from six layers of 100% cotton cloth diapers for super absorbency.  Our soft, luxurious burp cloths measure 14.5"x21" and have proven to hold up to hundreds of washings.  They can be machine washed and tumble dried - easy for the busy parent.

Our burp cloths can be personalized to make them extra special.  As a new mom, my favorite gift was monogrammed burp cloths.  Did you know that you can also use them as hand towels? Here in our downstairs bathroom, I use some of my Maisey Mae burp cloths.

What else can you use burp cloths for as your kids get older?  Lots of things - diaper changing pad, dish towels, cleaning rags and even golf towels!  The best part is you never have to worry about sending a duplicate gift - there are so many options on our site and as I said before, you can never have too many burp cloths!

The Story Behind Maisey Mae

For my first blog post, I thought I would give you a little insight into the background of Maisey Mae. Maisey Mae was started back in 2002 by Michelle Whitney in Cape Elizabeth, ME.  In 2012 a mutual friend of ours connected us and I purchased the business from her.  While Michelle was ready for a change - I was ready for a new challenge.  A few months after I bought the business I left my full time marketing job so I could dive right in.  

A couple of months after I bought the business, I was diagnosed with breast cancer.  Fortunately it was caught very early and after surgery and a year of preventative treatments, I am doing very well.  I am looking forward to having that challenge behind me and to moving forward and growing Maisey Mae.

My husband Tyler and I live in New London, NH along with our two kids Colby(5) and Grayson(3).  

In addition to information about my products, I am also going to share some fun articles about kids, parenting, and activities.  I welcome feedback at any time about my products or things that you would like to see from Maisey Mae.  You can call me at (603)440-9662 or email me at

All the best,
