Guess what?! My little family has a SUPER exciting announcement… my husband is GRADUATING!! Oh my heavens, I could NOT be more excited for him. He has worked SO hard going to school and providing for our family. You know I LOVE an excuse to have a party so you better believe we are going to be having a full blown celebration for this!


With graduation season right around the corner, it is my pleasure to introduce you ladies to my absolute FAVORITE place for little mini graduation outfits! Not only because they are DARLING and high quality, but because of the beautiful story behind Kinder Keepsakes.

Aly is the owner and creator of Kinder Keepsakes. Not only is she an amazing woman, but she is a miracle. Aly was born a NICU baby and weighed just 1 lb and 7 oz and was the size of a dollar bill. A DOLLAR BILL. But guess what?! She was a fighter and pulled through.

Because of this, Aly started her own company Kinder Keepsakes, where 15% of ALL product sales go towards their NICU Grad Program. It allows families with preemie babies to be able to be given a cap and gown for their baby to wear when they graduate from the NICU.  It also comes with a little diploma as well. Isn’t that the sweetest thing you have ever heard?!


These little graduation outfits aren’t just for graduating from the NICU though – they can be used for all types of graduations! You know I am ALL about the twinning… so of course I had to get a little matchy matchy for my girl and my man! It made for the CUTEST photos!


Aly also makes Luvi Blankets, which can be a playmate for newborns, are machine washable {hallelujah!} and can be rolled up to the size of a 10″ stuffed animal when not in use. My girl has NOT put it down since we received ours and officially can’t sleep without it! They are darling and THE softest little things!


I am SUPER excited that I was able to score all of us a coupon code to their cute store!! Use code: THEBESTDAY16  to receive 15% OFF your order! Expires May 30th.

Kinder Keepsakes is really trying to get their message out about their NICU Grad Program. So even if you don’t want to purchase anything, if you at least will share this with your friends so that they can make everyone aware of what they are doing, it would be so helpful!

#SmallBizSaturday: Founded in 2009, the Lexington, S.C.-based Kinder Keepsakes is not your average baby boutique. In December 2008, Aly Porter decided to make a baby graduation cap and gown so her three-month-old baby girl could participate in the celebration of her parents’ college graduation. Since that time, the company has expanded its offerings significantly. Also included in its line of hand-crafted products are blankets, bracelet sets, mittens and quilts.
