Devastated!!

This is going to be quick because I am actually right in the middle of something, but I had to get this out. I am right in the middle of planning Leila Jane's first birthday party. I always do the first one up in KC, since they don't really have a whole lot of friends at that age and it is mostly for family anyway :) Invitations are done, The tutu birthday outfit has been ordered, I have almost perfected the huge 3D "cupcake" cake! All that was left to do was the gift. Malakai got the potterybarn anywhere chair for his first birthday which would be perfect to get for Leila, however, she got it for Christmas. So, I logged on to babystyle.com (one of my top 3 online stores, this is where I got Leila's ADORABLE peacock Halloween costume) to purchase her the pink cruiser that matches Malakai's. What happens when I get there??!!
I get this...
"We're sorry but we have suspended Internet sales from our site. babystyle is sad to announce that we have filed for Chapter 11 bankruptcy protection. At this time, we will no longer accept online orders. Any pending orders that have not yet shipped have been cancelled and your credit card will not be charged."
WHAT??!! All I have to say is it is a sad, sad, day in the Miller house!
If you have ANY suggestions for a first birthday gift it would be greatly appreciated. I'm not really looking for something "commercial." While I LOVE those toys she gets, I personally like to get her something more original. Those of you that know me know I like to be "different" or "boutiquish". PLEASE!! Bring in the suggestions!
XOXO,
Miller

That is so sad! I agree about getting her something special. Have you looked into any other web sites... I will do some research and hopefully we can find her that special little gift that she will appreciate when she is our age :)

Get her a fancy china set from Tiffany's! Always a fun gift! My kids each got one for their baptism, and while neither have used them, they are in their closet for when I think they are responsible enough!
