Sugar Roux.While we love the monogrammed and personalized everything for kids these days, we’re always on the prowl for something that says "my mom thinks out of the box." We may have stumbled upon just that over at
A stay-at-home-mom to two under three, Monica has created cool silhouette applique tees that combine the old art of silhouettes with a new funky flair. All you have to do is pick your fabric and t-shirtstyle, send her a profile picture of your child, and she does the rest. What you get is a cool one-of-a-kind t-shirt that is fun to wear as well as a cool keepsake for you sentimental types (count me in on that one).
And we love that Monica is donating 10% of her profits to Doernbecher Children’s Hospital in Portland, Oregon. Hooray for creative moms who give back!So if you’re looking for somethingpersonalized, fun, and alittle different, we suggest grabbing one of these Sugar Roux tees. Thinking outside the box never looked so cute. -Kristen
Hi! We’re Kristen + Liz!
We started Cool Mom Picks in 2006 to help make life cooler, easier, more organized, more meaningful, and more fun for parents of all kinds.
Trivia: It was called Cool Mom Sh*t for the first two days. (Yeah, we rethought that.)
We had no idea our site would grow to become a major lifestyle network, that we'd end up sharing our finds with the TODAY Show and Martha Stewart, that we'd be able to make a real difference for so many small businesses and women-run companies, or that we'd end up with an incredible community of the coolest readers on the planet. (If we do say so ourselves).
But we did.
And we still love what we do every single day.
We're so glad you're here.
