Thirty-One Gifts Launches ‘Baby by Thirty-One’ and Baby Shower-Themed Events for Mothers with Children in NICU
(COLUMBUS, OH) April 2, 2018 – Today, Thirty-One Gifts announced the latest addition to its already-dynamic bag and accessory lines with the introduction of “Baby by Thirty-One,” an online-only collection of specially designed diaper bags, thermals, nursery décor and organizational favorites in adorable new prints. Simultaneously, Thirty-One will give back to the community through their Thirty-One Gives charitable initiative with 22 baby shower-themed events around Mother’s Day, coordinated together with Ronald McDonald House Charities® (RMHC®). These events are for families with children in the Neonatal Intensive Care Unit (NICU) at participating hospitals and will take place throughout the company’s 69-city 15th Anniversary Celebration Tour, currently underway.
With these baby shower events, Thirty-One Gifts aims to help mothers and families at a difficult time by providing them with much-needed necessities – some they potentially didn’t have time to get before their baby was born – in preparation for taking home their healthier newborn in the near future.
“The importance of community and giving back is central to who we are and the culture we foster among our employees and network of more than 63,000 consultants,” said Cindy Monroe, Thirty-One Gifts Founder and CEO. “We are proud of the work that’s gone in to creating the incredibly fun and functional Baby by Thirty-One line. It’s an honor to launch it during our 15th Anniversary Celebration Tour with the tour’s many community give-back events, planned together with nonprofit organizations we support.”

Baby by Thirty-One is a line of four diaper bags and four accessory bags and thermals, and seven nursery décor products in 13 prints, as well as eight new baby personalization options.

- Exterior zipper pockets
- Interior elastic pockets
- Magnetic snap closure
- Side cinch pockets
- Cell phone pocket
- Made of polyester, nylon, and rip-stop polyester fabric in modern prints that mix and match
- The Take Two Diaper Bag converts from a bag to a backpack with adaptable straps

Thirty-One’s new baby-friendly personalization options can also make these products a giftable keepsake for anyone attending a baby shower, celebrating a birth or customizing a nursery with one of many new designs.
Giving back is fundamental to Thirty-One and through its charitable initiative, Thirty-One Gives, the company works to empower girls, women and families to lead purposeful, thriving lives. Since 2012, Thirty-One Gives has donated $100 million in products and cash to charitable organizations that share their mission, including Ronald McDonald House Charities.
To date, families have received over 500,000 Thirty-One Gifts welcome bags at RMHC locations throughout the U.S. and Canada, and the company’s financial commitment has helped enable over 12,500 family nights. Employees at Thirty-One’s headquarters also volunteer at the local RMHC chapter in Columbus, OH on the last day of each month with 31 days. The company also created a beauty salon at the house, sponsored a guest room, and purchased an adjacent home for RMHC’s use. The Thirty-One sales force is also active volunteers at RMHC locations throughout the U.S. and Canada.
