Booties that will warm your baby’s toes (and your heart)

We’re always excited to find global nonprofits that empower women and their families rise to above poverty. Now we’re especially happy to find one that supports that mission in the form of adorable baby gifts that we’d buy even if they weren’t doing so much good. (But they are.)   So here’s a story we love: Kohl Crecelius was an avid snowboarder and surfer dude. But when his brother taught him an unlikely hobby–crocheting–Kohl was instantly hooked (heh). He immediately taught two of his buddies, who were also hooked. Now we’re hooked. Because when Kohl traveled to Uganda in college, he discovered unimaginable...

Actual stylish mommy and me aprons from one of the coolest designers? A fantastic excuse to bake

If you’re going to bake together, do it in style. But do it quickly! These gorgeous denim aprons from Oh Joy (yes, really) are going to disappear faster than a hot stack of chocolate chip cookies. We dig the beautifully curated goods on Brika, and while we’re not always into the whole coordinated mommy/daughter thing, this truly stylish and modern mother and child apron set is our kind of thing; and a great example of how Brika brings together small artisans with interesting stories. When Brika maker Ellen Bennett went to the Oh Joy! studio to meet Joy (one...

A sale on cute back to school clothes for boys before school even starts? We’ll take it.

For a while now, we’ve been fans of Little Dudes Only, one of the first online shops we’ve found that specializes just in cool clothes for boys. (So stop yer complainin’, mamas of boys–we’ve got you covered.) What’s better is when they have a sale, and right now it’s a pretty nice one. They’ve put together an nice selection of back-to-school clothes for boys, which happen to all be 20% off for a limited time, along with the rest of the shop. My picks include the super popular Madpax backpacks (shown here), the Mini Shatsu “On Tour” Keyboard Sweatshirt, ...

Ever notice how gorgeous kids’ clothes look even more gorgeous when they’re on sale?

Recently we wrote about the splurgey loveliness that is Caramel Baby + Child, a UK label specializing in the stuff a lot of us dream of dressing our children in, but not necessarily at retail prices. Well now, they’re less.   The Caramel Baby & Child sale is pretty awesome–up to 60% off on even the spring/summer items that you could use straight through fall. Some of my favorite picks for my own girls include the girls’ cardigan in five colors that’s now $44, down from $110; a brown checked girls’ skirt that’s $40 down from $101; and a...

H & M now lets you shop online. Can we get an amen?

Well parents, your retail desires have been granted. Or at least one of mine has. Because it’s official: H&M is now selling clothes online. Whoo! Following in the 2011 footsteps of Zara online, I am so happy to find H&M online now up and running starting today. It’s always been one of my favorite options for affordable, European-styled clothes and they happen to offer very cute kids wear too. Some of my kids’ favorite tees and little summer dresses are from H&M. The only problem is, not every store near me has a children’s department. And that’s New York...

We’ll have the sushi: onesies with wow factor

Let’s face it. Once our kids hit the age of 2 or 3, our days of choosing adorable outfits for them are pretty much over. So squeeze in all that clothing cuteness while you still can. We loved the Artoo onesies and buntings from The Wishing Elephant on Etsy, so it’s no surprise that we’ve fallen for their other cute baby clothes too. Sushi, anyone?   Yup, we’ve decided we love pretty much everything in the shop at The Wishing Elephant. Onesies are made of 100% cotton and embellished by hand with 100% eco-felt. They’re available for ages newborn through 24 months. We’re...

May the Force be with your kids’ feet

Can you feel it? There’s been a great disturbance in the world of footwear, as if millions of Ewok-sized voices had just cried out in excitement: “Mommy, those shoes breathe like Darth Vader!” The Star Wars by Stride Rite Vader Light & Sound shoe is the closest you’ll come to having the Dark Lord of the Sith over for meatloaf. Available in toddler sizes 8.5 to 12 and kid sizes 12.5 to 3, both in narrow or wide, each shoe is made of leather and mesh with an easy hook and loop closure under Vader’s mask. With the press...

The most gorgeous handmade birthday crowns and party hats. Oof.

We’ve always loved supporting the Etsy artists making handmade birthday crowns and hats for birthday parties and special days thereafter. (Like, Tuesdays. Or Fridays.) But here’s one, in honor of all the royal baby talk this week, that just may take the candle-covered cake. At Mosey on Etsy you’ll find a remarkable array of birthday decor, including some of the most exquisite and imaginative handmade party hats and birthday crowns I’ve ever seen.   Themes include space travel, woodland critters, and of course the traditional prince/princess for a day, complete with felt and ribbon adornments like butterflies, fairies and...

Snazzy handcrafted baby shoes that really steal the show

If the baby I’m having next month is anything like me, the kid will appreciate a really good pair of shoes. (I’ve already passed that gene onto my daughter, who clamors for any beautiful pair of heels she sees.) I find most people focus on the baby clothes, but adorable shoes really make the outfit. And in the case of this Etsy shop I discovered? That cute romper set from Grandma might go unnoticed if Baby is wearing these. Sorry, Grandma! Warning: Visiting the Ajalor shop on Etsy will either make you want to have another baby stat, or you’ll...
