Swell Forever takes personalized baby blankets to a whole new level.

This spring, two of my friends have had kid number four which as we all know, makes it a little tougher in the gift-giving department. What baby gift do you give to the veteran mom who has three of everything already? Think heirlooms and personalized gifts. (Unless of course you are buying gifts for George Forman’s sons.) I just found the sweetly personalized baby blankets from Swell Forever and think they’re just perfect, since they take personalization way beyond monogramming. Send them your custom message, and they’ll print it on a tag sewn into the luxurious, made-in-the-US blanket. A sentimental message is so sweet, but you could also use a...

A sweetly affordable new layette collection from none other than Skip Hop. (What took them so long?)

There’s a reason why Skip Hop is a favorite brand of modern parents. Their ability to create playful and adorable items for babies that aren’t so, well, babyish is what made me a longtime fan, from their nursery decor and crib bedding to their ever popular diaper bags. That’s why I was super stoked to learn about the launch of the Skip Hop Modern Baby Basics layette collection. I wouldn’t call any of the pieces revolutionary, but I like everything I see — and feel. Sometimes the cutest baby outfits are like cardboard, but the new Skip Hop layette collection is made from the softest cotton, even though...

Beautiful new muslin baby blankets, for a new generation of peacefully sleeping babies

New moms now have more baby blankets to choose from than babies have reason to cry.  But the cool, mom-owned label, Lulujo that’s new to the US from Canada, has really caught my eye with gorgeous, affordable muslin baby blankets and other gift-worthy swaddling options. My favorites: a bold, double-layer muslin swaddler that I’m pretty sure I won’t be able to live without when new baby arrives, and a luxurious turkish towel I can use for almost anything. I know, I really shouldn’t be this excited about baby blankets. But I am. Related: Celebrity-designed baby blankets in a beautiful collaboration   Like the original swaddlers...

The Valentine’s gift for the baby who stole your heart

It’s coming up on Valentine’s Day, which means it’s the time we start looking for cute Valentine’s gifts for babies that don’t make our teeth hurt from the sweetness. One of my favorite fallback recommendations is the personalized heart tattoo onesie, and this one from Psychobaby is just perfect. Instead of arguing whether it should say mom or dad, it’s personalized with your own child’s name–or nickname. I think it would be pretty cool if his name was Bruiser or something. The shop also features blankets, hats and bibs with the same design in red or pink. All complete with the...

Trend alert: Snow Leopards. They’re everywhere.

This time last year, our kids were all about foxes, probably because The Song That Will Not Be Mentioned was playing on repeat in our homes. While woodland animals are still a favorite with my kids, I’m noticing one animal obsession rising above the rest—snow leopards. My kids see them as cuddly cats with cool fur, so I don’t blame them for ooh-ing at some of the fun snow leopard fashion we’re seeing around our local boutiques.     You’ll find the Schneelepoard Graphic Tee from Tea Collection in their boys department, but that’s not going to stop our girls from pairing it with black leggings and...

Heirloom cashmere for babies so gorgeous, you might never take it out of the box.

It’s no secret we’re fans of gorgeous cashmere, for ourselves and for our kids, even if we do tend to covet it from afar. So imagine our delight when we recently stumbled upon a new cashmere line–this time, just for babies. I know, low points for practicality, but super high points for the irresistible factor, right? Inspired by his love of grey and a couple of cuddly rabbits he discovered in his black & white photo collection, Bob Andrews, the NYC-based founder of Grey Rabbit Baby who has worked for the likes of Ralph Lauren, has created some gorgeous cashmere pieces for newborns that make special gifts for...
