Pamper your favorite mama, organically

If you counted the number of times my reviews have stated that moms love being pampered… well, it might start to sound like a cry for help.

With that in mind, here’s a delicious Mother’s Day Gift Set from one of our favorite organic bath companies that should make mom feel outrageously special.  [Don’t miss a BIG exclusive giveaway after the jump!] CMP favorite Zoe Organics has teamed up with Moksa Organics to...

Super cool boys’ accessories, because why should girls have all the fun?

Clothes might make the (little) man, but there’s something about cool hats, sunglasses and other accessories that can dial up the wardrobe a notch. Who says girls get to have all the fun? Browsing around at one of my favorite cool-kid indie clothing labels, Appaman, I was so happy to see another great brand that hasn’t forgotten the stylish little dudes in our lives. The future’s so bright…yeah, you know the rest.  Appaman’s sunglasses for kids are better made and longer lasting than thost $5 drugstore ones they’ll break in two seconds. There are some smart black glasses (at...

Healthy Child Parties: That’s not an oxymoron, mamas.

We’re all familiar with sugar-happy birthday parties and itchy-sad Chicken Pox parties. But we’re excited about the possibility of hosting a Healthy Child Party that makes the moms, the kids, and the doctors happy. If you’re not yet familiar with Healthy Child, Healthy World, it began when Nancy and Jim Chuda sought answers for their daughter Colette’s tragic death from a non-hereditary form of cancer and determined environmental toxins were to blame. The parents met with environmental groups, celebrities, and government officials to protect children from the devastating effects of toxic substances in the environment.  They’re responsible for tons...

Nine Naturals: Because once you go all natural while pregnant, it’s hard to go back to crappy shampoo

I still remember the day I learned about sulfates, parabens, and phthalates and what they can do to unborn babies. I waddled into my bathroom, read the ingredients of my favorite products, shook my fist at nasty chemicals and the companies that put them in shampoo, and ran out to buy beauty supplies that were healthy and safe for pregnancy.  [don’t miss a special discount after the jump]   We first covered Nine Naturals when they debuted in 2009, and we jumped at the chance to try their new formulations for hair and body. The entire idea behind the...

Birdhouse trailers = Home tweet home!

One of the cardinal rules around my house: birdwatching is better than television. My little chickadees love to sprinkle seed on the back porch and see who comes a-peckin’, especially when that family of wrens returns every year to nest in our grill. But if you can sparrow some change (ha), this fancy birdhouse might be the perfect home tweet home for your feathered friends. And unlike us, you can still use your grill. These adorable birdhouse trailers from birdhouse20 on Etsy are an unusual combination of fine craftsmanship, quirky style, and sneaky backyard biology lesson. Each one is...

Maurice Sendak prints. A.K.A. Where the wild things art. (Ha.)

It’s you! But tiny, wearable, and made of embroidery floss.

Mamas, this might be the most personalized necklace we’ve seen in a while. Whether you’re gift shopping for the mom, grandma, or bestie who has everything, we guarantee she doesn’t have your portrait together embroidered on a tiny custom wood hoop. Bonus: the artist can also do guinea pigs. It’s no surprise that we love embroidered gifts, especially embroidered necklaces and adorable wall hangings. But we’re just cooing over these sweet¬† hand-embroidered portrait necklaces based on your photos, then stretched on custom hand-made hoops. The artist is more than accommodating and will work with your suggestions and photos to...

Delicious chocolatey awesomeness that tastes way better than it might sound

Magic Chunks are delicious, all-natural, wheat-free, and sometimes dairy-free. And my kids and I love them. Pull up a chunk and let me tell you why. [Don’t miss an exclusive discount after the jump!]   Magic Chunks happened quite by accident, when Nutty Steph’s Vermont-made granola just wouldn’t get crunchy enough, thanks to an unusual batch of maple syrup. Now, each slightly more than bite-sized cube includes thick-rolled oats, Vermont maple syrup, rich dark Equadorian chocolate, nuts, and a mixture of seeds, spices, and oils–all locally sourced except for that chocolate. And hey, no one cares about the crunch...
