A Mamapicks Favourite: JIAE Boutique

My all-time best go-to for gifts for little girls is JIAE Boutique (pronounced Jiya), where everything is personalized with bling.  Little girls are always thrilled to see their name on something…and the more sparkle, the better.  I love the hairbands, tutu skirts, tanks and other accessories.  I also love making my order online/by phone and picking up my gift in Thornhill.  So easy!  Check out the website for gift options for the whole family (boys too…).

PeachyBuy is now offering a special  coupon for JIAE  goodies.  You have until the end of the day to take advantage of that.  Mamapicks is also excited to have one personalized hairband with gorgeous flower to  GIVE AWAY!  All you have to do is go to JIAE’s Facebook page and click Like…and drop me a note with the name you would like on your hairband.  The 5th person to write in will be the lucky winner!
