The cutest personalized baby shoes from top to bottom

We’ve always been big on recommending personalized gifts for people asking us for great baby gift ideas. Personalization makes any gift extra thoughtful, turns nearly anything into a keepsake, and it doesn’t even have to cost a fortune. So my latest find to add to the recommendation list are the personalized baby shoes from UK Etsy shop Born Bespoke. Samantha Gillan’s sweet, entirely handmade leather baby booties are fit for a royal prince or princess, but priced for many of us commoners, which I like. The styles range from not-at-all-scary dinosaurs to the cutest birds and woodland creatures, birth signs and classically simple monograms, hearts, and stars. I...

Freshly Picked Moccasins for kids and babies get funky for spring

When we I first met Susan Petersen four years ago and discovered her start-up Freshly Picked Moccasins — well, wow. We knew her totally handmade in the US moccasins were truly special. What we didn’t know is that her brand would grow into a major empire with oh, like a hundred zillion Instagram fans and a whole catalog of styles and accessories, thanks in part to a successful appearance on Shark Tank. We also didn’t know that we would end up with so many pitches from brands completely knocking off Susan’s designs so closely, they get an instant delete from me. (You know who you are, ahem.)...

The hottest shoes for babies this spring? Lizard, dahling.

It isn’t quite what you might imagine when you think of lizard shoes, of course. But when I stumbled on the leather lizard baby moccasins from Little House in the Orchard, I couldn’t help but smile. They’re beautifully handmade from ankle to uh, claws? I love the bright green, and details like the contrasting inner fabric and comfy elastic bands to keep them on. The leather soles makes them great for both indoor play and scampering around outside as the weather warms up.

Goumikids newborn hats, mittens and booties: Designed to actually stay on.

Let’s be real, parents. Amid the cry-fests and all-night burp-a-thons, it would be tough to remember a single thing about those early months, if it weren’t for the photos we take and look back on later. (“Oh right! We went to Florida for a week…totally forgot.”). That’s why ridiculously cute baby accessories have a special place in my heart, and hey, they can even give us sleep-deprived parents that squee when we need it most. From Goumikids, the same geniuses who brought us those soft, stay-put baby mitts and baby booties that have become a Cool Mom Picks favorite, they’ve just launched adorable Goumikids hats that, like their other accessories, are more...

New monogrammed baby shoes from Robeez. This time it’s personal.

They say it’s all in a name and the name here is your own kid’s. Well, that plus Robeez. As long time fans of the baby shoe brand that rose from start-up to Stride-Rite, it’s no surprise that we are all ogling over their perfectly adorable new monogrammed Robeez soft sole baby shoes. It was early on with my first child that I discovered and fell hard for Robeez.  First because they were the only shoes that would fit over her rather plump tootsies (got to love that elastic ankle). And second, for the huge array of fun styles. I find this...

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...

The baby will be along for the ride...

Don’t hate the cold. Love Winter.

The hardest person to keep warm in winter always seems to be the baby–they’re just too small to layer too much, and I hate trying to wrangle them into a coat. So other than layers of baby blankets, I turn to hats, booties, and mittens. This year I’m already obsessing about the Love Winter line of warm winter accessories for toddlers I just discovered from Elks & Angels.     The Love Winter hats, booties, and mittens are each available in almond, pink, or grey Australian sheepskin leather, accented with shearling wool, and they are sooooo soft. Seriously, this is pure luxury for your smallest family members....

Zooties are animal baby booties for your wild little cutie-patootie

Zooties animal baby booties are adorable, if you couldn’t tell. Even more adorable? They have a great story that involves providing work, medical assistance, and education to women in Kyrgyzstan, who hand-craft each pair from sheep wool. And we’re not lion! No matter which critter you select for a toe-tally awesome pair of booties, you’ll know that each pair of sweet critter feet is handmade in small batches, with the wool dyed, spun, felted, and stitched by a women-run collective. Zooties fit babies up to one year old and can be cleaned with a damp cloth. That’s a better deal...

After what seemed to be the winter that would never end, we’re all ready for warmer climes and adorable spring clothes for kids and babies. Which is one of the reasons we love partnering with Jacadi–they make it so easy to find  that very thing. (Well, maybe not the weather. But definitely the clothes.)  We could browse their website for hours, fantasizing about the classic, sophisticated styles, all designed with a lovely French flair. But right now, you might not have to dream, since they’re giving away a $200 gift card as part of their spring photo contest. Yeah, we’d...

These blingy baby booties are made for walking

We’re head over smoochable, pudgy heels for these soft and sweet heirloom leather baby moccasins that will make tiny toes look like blingy candy. And our pals at Freshly Picked make baby moccasins in suede and metallics, too, in case you’re a little more low-key. When I was a kid, heirloom meant “your grandmother will kill me if I throw this ugly thing away.”  As applied to these amazing, butter-soft moccasins, it means “built to last and look beautiful doing it.” Each pair of baby booties is handmade of durable leather, and made to stay on the sweet feet of...

The cutest baby clothes: Editors’ Best of 2013

We’re so excited to present our Editors Best of 2013 series. As always, no voting, no vote-begging, no entrance fees. Just the stuff we really really loved this year–starting with the cutest baby clothes of the year in 0-12mo. This is always one of the hardest for us–not necessarily because there are thousands of great ones, though there are lots, but because every single one makes us miss those little toes and little fingers and sweet little baby heads. (Though not so much the diapers.) Nununu (at top) It’s always refreshing to find cool clothes for baby that go beyond...

It’s booties season, baby

Just because I don’t have a baby anymore doesn’t mean I can’t drool over cute felt booties like these handmade beauties. Each pair of these adorable baby booties is made by hand, using felt and soft wool to keep those sweet little toes warm all winter long. It’s tough to pick favorites from the vast collection, but I have to say, I’m in love with the slightly unfinished feel of the applique and seam stitching on all of them. Moms of boys: I’m definitely seeing more girl-ish options, but that’s the beauty of Etsy. Just convo the artisan and see...

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...

Adorable baby booties that actually stay on. It’s real! We swear!

There is some unknown force that prevents socks from staying on babies’ feet. Probably the same one that makes socks magically disappear from dryers. Luckily, a new line from guava kids, guavaboots, is an answer to this ongoing conundrum and will be the solution for all those one-socked babies in the world. The new baby footwear from guava kids (we love their guavamitts!), are adorable bamboo-derived, organic cotton sock-booties that miraculously stay on through all those little baby kicks and wiggles. Thanks to Velcro enclosures which are completely adjustable, the guavabooties will stay on babies’ feet, regardless of how...
