These rulers are normally $74.95 but at the time of this post, Dear Lillie has a batch that are discounted to $49.95 due to imperfections. The great thing about the Dear Lillie rulers is that have a classic design so you aren't limited to using them in your child's room - they can also be used as wall decor in other spaces such as your family room or kitchen.
A similar Ruler Growth Chart ($70.00) is sold by Etsy shop One Little Belt, which offers personalization with your family or child's name for an extra $10:
For those of you who prefer a more modern design, there are several adorable growth chart options available through Etsy such as this Watch Me Grow Giraffes Modern Growth Chart ($35)

For a more traditional little girl design, Pottery Barn Kids' linen Tree Growth Chart ($39) is adorable:
Etsy is also loaded with shops selling growth chart decals such as this Growth Chart Giraffe Decal ($45) from Designed Beginnings that can be made in several color options:

I've also fallen in love with WhipperBerry's DIY Growth Chart Kit, which Heather created with inexpensive jute webbing. She cleverly uses decorative tags and safety pins to mark growth milestones (click here to see Heather's growth chart tutorial):
I wish that I had growth charts such as these when my girls were little - sadly, they're getting too close to the 5' mark to justify getting one now. At least I can have the fun of giving them as gifts :-) Thanks so much for stopping by and have a great weekend!
