The Ultimate Baby Shower Gift

November 6, 2023
The ultimate baby shower gift - the money savvy pig

I’m at that point of my life where Saturday weddings are now replaced by Sunday baby showers, and I’m loving it. Whoever decided mimosas and snacks were the perfect pregame to opening tiny shoes and tiny hats was right. Who doesn’t love tiny adorable tiny things?

But as much as I love a good stroller accessory, I can’t help but think I want to do more. Go above and beyond. 

I want to be the friend known for the epic gift at the shower. The showstopper, if you will.

And so whenever it’s time for me to pick up another gift for my future niece or nephew to be, I get them a Money Savvy Pig.

The Money Savvy Pig is a piggy bank. But not just any piggy bank, it’s a bank with four slots instead of one. Instead of one choice for your money, it suggests four: Save, Spend, Donate and Invest.

WAIT – I can hear you now. You’re thinking, Allison this high-end piggy bank is for a baby?

YES. This piggy bank, which looks ever so cute on top of their dresser when baby is young, is especially for them. It’s ready and waiting, holding onto 1st year birthday cash from relatives, until one day baby is a curious toddler, ready to see what the fuss is about.

This piggy bank is there to be an afternoon activity where mom and dad can show their curious toddler that money has choices. 

And when said toddler has questions about money, the Money Savvy Pig is there to answer them. To teach long and short-term goals, to remind them that these goals are not one and done options. Achieve a goal, remove the funds from the functioning feet and start again. Keep setting goals.

I love the idea that this piggy bank will grow up with baby. That it isn’t just a cute onesie that only lasts a season. This piggy bank can grow with baby. Did you know that money habits are set by age six? With the Money Savvy Pig, your child’s financial literacy isn’t daunting. It’s been growing with them since birth.

And because we all love options, know that I never give the same Money Savvy Pig twice. There are so many colors, including the cutest platinum option, which give me Tiffany vibes. Or should the parents of baby happen to be football or soccer fans, there’ a Money Savvy bank for that as well. Pigs not your style? They’ve got a cow guys, named Moolah. Tell me you didn’t just giggle.

So, if you’re looking for the ULTIMATE baby shower gift, the one that gets the cute “awwws” from the girls, the approving smiles from mom, and all-knowing nods from grandma, this is IT!

Interested in being the VIP at the baby shower? You can purchase the Money Savvy Pig here or on Amazon here!

Need a book to stock the baby’s book nook? Look no further than these Money Savvy Kids Club Books. Because we love an award winning themed gift!
