70% off the cool gifts you know you want anyway

We’re always sad when we see the small businesses we love come and go, but the one silver lining are the sales for their customers. And this one happens to be a great shop with a really great sale.     For years, Spoon Sisters, has been one of our favorite destination for clever little gifts, stocking stuffers (stock up now!), and fun doodads, from alphabet cookie cutters to tattoos for your Converse shoes. And now, everything in the shop is 70% off. Just a few of my favorite picks right now: Scrabble Letter mugs, from $11 to $3.30 Kids’ birthday tees,...

Especially from some of our favorite indie brands. If you’re a Sanrio fan, say hello to some super cute new Hello Kitty gifts we’ve seen lately.

Spring sweetness: mint sandals for little feet

Spring is coming any day now (well, at least the Weather Channel thinks so). I always like to be prepared well ahead of time with my kids’ new spring wardrobe–especially shoes. Out with the galoshes, and in with all the fun, happy new shoes. If I had a girl, then I would so be getting her these adorably chic mint sandals from See Kai Run. I love the hot pink soles (think mini Louboutins in training, ha), which are soft, durable and flexible–perfect for summer camp and ice cream jaunts. Adjustable closures make them an easy-on/easy-off spring to summer shoe....

Drool-worthy kids’ clothing inspiration from across the pond

I love Caramel Baby and Child. It’s total eye candy for me as I drool over all these adorable kids’ outfits from London. Now, if you (like me) can’t afford it, or don’t have a generous UK aunt who will send you a care package, you can still find inspiration in some of these happy, gorgeous, springtime looks they’ve put together. Socks with sandals? Who knew it wasn’t just for tourists. (Ha.) If you style it right, in a contrasty color with a bold dress, it looks surprisingly cool to me. Bright yellow sandals make everything pop including a neutral...

Attention, stylish girls: your spring sneakers have arrived

I always like the fashion-sneaker hybrid for kids, because they are super versatile. In other words, I know that if a slightly dressy birthday party turns into a giant game of Chase Everyone Around the House Like Crazy People And Scream Your Heads Off, that my daughters can keep up with the boys. So I’m really happy to see that Umi, one of my longtime favorite shoe brands for kids, is totally rocking the stylish sneakers this year.   The colorful, mary jane style Halina Shoes are also pretty awesome–and those grommets across the strap are a sweet touch....

Cool kids’ belts crafted from fire hoses (plus proceeds help firefighters)

When I first discovered the cool gifts at Gallo en Fuego, I was definitely intrigued. And not just because there were hot firefighters all over their website. HOT. As it turns out, Gallo en Fuego offers more than just eye candy. Their kids’ belts are made from decommissioned fire hoses, most of which are from New York. They are just plain awesome: bright, sturdy, and perfect for any little kid, boy or girl, especially if he (or she) is a firefighter fan. Each belt (the belts come in adult sizes too, by the way) is made in Gallo en Fuego’s custom...

Sorbet for spring, please

It’s becoming clear that sorbet colors have replaced pastels as the new, soft shades of baby clothing this spring. (And hello? It’s spring! Yay!)  While it may be tough for the untrained eye to see the difference between “pastel pink” and “persimmon,” eh, all we know is that this new line from a favorite baby label is pretty darn cute. PAIGELAUREN Baby has been making luxurious 100% organic cotton baby layette basics that we’ve loved since their launch. They evolved into candy colored baby clothes, and now they’re delighting us with a yummy, sorbet collection. (Or sherbet? Your choice. We...

Oppan Euro Style: bold, bright kids’ accessories with real zing

Pink and baby blue? Bunnies and choo-choos? Not today. We’ve got a hankering for cozy, slouchy hats, slippers, and newborn mittens with vibrant, European style that we’ve just found.   The owner of Rattle Tat goes straight to Sweden for the sort of bright, iconic fabrics it’s hard to find over here in the States. Clouds, stars, buses, monkeys, mushrooms and more, work for both genders in a stretchy mix of 100% cotton and Lycra. Each piece is designed and handmade by a Swede living in England, which means prices are in pounds and shipping is a bit high....

Serious scooter style with South African flair

I am obsessed with Vespa scooters. I mean, seriously, what could be better than hopping onto a scooter and zipping off into the sunset in some gorgeous foreign land? But what do you do if (like me) you can’t afford your scooter fix? Well, you dress your kids in adorable scooter tees. Okay, it’s not exactly like owning this sweet piece of machinery, but this cool kids’ t-shirt does it justice. I’m digging the vintage look on my little guy — it’s got South African flavor without us ever leaving the house, and he loves the bold graphics. If...

Celebrate World Down Syndrome Day on March 21 with Lots of Socks

This Thursday, March 21st, we’d like you to help raise awareness about World Down Syndrome Day, not by making a donation to research (although that’s always nice), or signing a petition, or running a 5K. Instead, we ask that you and the kids find the craziest socks you’ve got, and pile them on.  Yup, really. Join us and wear Lots of Socks on March 21st.   This could be perhaps my favorite awareness campaign ever, since I groove on having toasty toes. Plus, it’s so easy to do! Just find the brightest, loudest socks you can, throwing them on...
