It seems like everyone and her mother is becoming, well, a mother these days. But instead of opting for the usual layette package, consider the Newmama and Newborn gift set from Eileen Shields. Every box comes with one pair of Shields-tested and mother-approved ballet slippers (she herself is the proud parent of two kiddies) and a pair of cute-as-a-button newborn shoes from Helen James. So mom gets what she wants, the perfect pair of go-anywhere (or -nowhere) shoes, but baby also gets a nod. Talk about a bundle of joy.
