One of the obvious—and awesome—perks of writing for Cool Mom Picks is that I get to scope out the newest, coolest products for moms. And sometimes, those products fall into the I-can-only-dream, outrageously chic, over-the-top gorgeous category. Then again, sometimes we get emails make us ask, are these for real? Here are ten seriously splurgy baby gifts I’ve seen lately, in no particular order.
If you’re a 90201-er or $4500 for a crib doesn’t blow your mind, have fun. My wish list can be your shopping list.
1. Silver Cross Kensington Pram Stroller, $2,750
Feel like Kate Middleton when you stroll your baby around town; she has one too.
2. Babyhome Dream Premium Bassinet in leather, $1200
Leather may not be the most practical for a baby, but this is truly gorgeous. And will stay that way provided he never spits up.
3. Carkoon Infant car seat, about $750
If you get in a car accident, a protective bubble in this futuristic car seat immediately covers over baby to protect from the impact and even heat.
4. Nursery Works Vetro Crib in clear lucite, $4500
Ultra modern chic, this lucite crib is the same one that Beyonce and Jay Z picked for their baby. You know, since that’s how we make all our home decor decisions.
5. Tiffany Loop Fork and Spoon set, $325
This keepsake baby set is so gorgeous, surely it will get babies to eat their strained spinach. Right?
6. Jimmy Choo Blare Black Biker Leather Tote Bag, $1895
With moms using tote bags as diaper bags more and more these days, this ultra-cool biker tote from one of our favorite designers is a seriously luxurious option. It definitely says, “yeah, I have three nannies. So what?”
7. Bawa Play Table, $650
Is it a play table or a work of art? Hard to tell with this stunning handmade piece from Poland. It’s not really a super splurge as far as beautifully hand-crafted furniture goes, but considering some kid will probably scribble all over it with your Sharpie…yeah.
8. Personalized Ralph Lauren cashmere Baby Blanket, $295
Incredibly soft cable knit cashmere that you can just toss in the washer and dryer every day when it gets dirty like all your other baby blankets. Kidding.
9. Bloom Fresco Chrome high chair, $650
This happens to be one of our favorite high chairs, splurge or not. The design is gorgeous and it adjusts to three different positions so your child can use it until they’re almost 80 lbs., though by my count that’s somewhere around fifth grade.
10. Nursery Works Halo Crib, $6,900
This crib, made from hand-selected American black walnut, floats on a 24-karat gold base. And in case you need to justify the price, it converts to a toddler bed too. Though I’m still having trouble justifying the real gold.
