Had you asked me in 2007 when I graduated from University where I thought I would be at 35, I would have told you working for one of the biggest talent agents in Canada representing Canadian artists. That or being Catherine’s manager on her sold out world tour as my favourite vocalist. Thankfully life kept Catherine & I together, but the universe had other plans for me when it came to my career path. Over the last eleven years, I have held a lot of different jobs. Being an entrepreneur is amazing and I love it, but it doesn’t always offer the financial stability that a “9-5” does, and so it’s why this year I’ve really started to take my finances more seriously. From purchasing life insurance (see that post here), to saving for a baby, I really want to make the steps I need towards the things I want most in life.

Dinning out is something that a lot of us can take for granted, especially when we eventually start a family and come to realize that having our little ones with us can make it more challenging to enjoy a delicious meal in Toronto.

For those of you who follow along on social media (@DoTheDaniel btw), you’ll have noticed that I recently became an uncle. My baby brother & his beautiful wife gave birth to their first born and the whole family couldn’t be happier to welcome baby Rebecca! I of course immediately started planning for baby gifts that would be both practical for first time parents but also beautiful for my niece. There are so many choices out there, from toys, booties, even a baby casting voucher which would have let them make a mold of the baby’s feet to keep forever. Although this would have been really cute, from what I’ve heard, the baby is quite fussy and probably would enjoy having to stay still for the mold. I decided to keep looking. I wanted to find items that would be useful but lovely for the new baby to have, so I checked out a list of the best baby products online to see what I could get and where I could get them from, I was in need of a lot of help in that department because you never know just what they like, but reviews from actual parents who have tried and tested them have helped so much.
When faced with buying baby essentials, be they for your own little ones or the additions via family and friends, I asked myself… did I have to settle on going to the big box baby stores? The answer is no. Thanks to Etsy Canada, I was able to create a parcel of baby must haves that are not only unique, but also support local businesses.
