A new baby gift set that gets around

We love the whole premise of Lately Lily, who teaches kids the joy of travel and worldliness–a little like our generation’s Eloise, but without the bad attitude. And now kids can start joining her on journeys from birth, with these cute new gift sets for baby boys and girls.    Poking around Land of Nod, I happened to catch these brand new Lately Lily baby gift sets featuring the trademark vintage picture book style that I fell in love with last year. The designs are all printed on three baby onesies and packaged in a reusable suitcase gift box which will...

Zippy nighttime diaper changes? We’re in.

As excited as I am about the impending arrival of Baby #3, one thing I am not particularly looking forward to is the sleep deprivation that arrives on the scene with a newborn. I recall with vague familiarity the middle of the night feedings and changings–and realizing in the morning that all the snaps on the baby’s PJs are mismatched. That will no longer be an issue with this adorable onesie.   The ZIPaboo is a revelation for all those weary-eyed parents fumbling with diapers and fiddling with snaps in the middle of the night. With a single zipper...

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...

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.

Personalized baby gifts guaranteed to bring the squees

If you’re looking for a baby gift that’s going to stand out from the other baby gifts–in more ways than one–we think we’ve found one that’s perfect. And perfectly adorable. The personalized name baby leggings from Jennifer Ann are so beautifully designed. We’ve seen similar and they always look a little…wonky. But these? Wow. Made from 100% organic cotton right in the USA, each pair is entirely handsewn to order. The printing quality is really beautiful, and I love both the script and the block type fonts–and the number of color choices. You can even get a matching personalized¬†baby...

FEED plus Target: a collaboration we can get behind.

I’m a big fan of the FEED mission, which sells products to directly feed schoolchildren both at home through Feeding America and abroad via the UN’s World Food Program. Whenever I carry my FEED bag, I’m reminded of the good it did. So I’m excited about their collaboration with Target–but it’s ending soon. So if you haven’t checked it out, now is a great time.        The FEED + Target collaboration includes so many kinds of products; check the Target website and there’s surely something in there that you want, especially considering it supports Feeding America.

Miki Miette, a small Los Angeles boutique, offers a cute but limited online selection of clothing for newborns to 24 months. Created by a Japanese designer with a fab eye, the clothes offer a mix of both traditional and urban styles. They offer the usual adorable baby wear–like this sweet lavender ruffled outfit...

aden + anais just made summer a little cooler. Babies everywhere say thank you.

My daughter was born smack in the middle of the summer, so it was a constant battle to find fabrics that kept her comfortably swaddled but not too hot. Luckily, a new line of baby blankets and sleepwear from one of our favorite indie labels, aden+anais, makes it simpler to navigate the heat when baby #3 comes along. We love everything at aden+anais (they have Hello Kitty muslin!). We have included their swaddles in our Baby Shower Gift Guide, and the new line of bamboo baby swaddles and bamboo sleep bags make us love them even more. It’s so...

Geek-tastic babies, your wardrobe awaits.

We discovered the awesome pop culture baby tees and onesies from Austin artist Kayo Master over a year ago, and loved them so much (zomg, that Princess Leia onesie?) that we featured them in our Baby Shower Gift Guide. Since then she’s expanded her line, with some awesome new designs and even some baby gift sets than any geeky mama will swoon for. With Dr. Spock, Captain America, Mr. T, and a huge host of baby Star Wars characters in training (sorry…Star Wars inspired characters) you can find lots of these cool handmade Kayo Master baby clothes at BRIKA...

If there’s a special baby Star Wars geek in your life, this sweet onesie is a great way to induct her–hold the cinnamon-bun Leia knitted hat. The My Star Wars At-At Pet Onesie from EngramClothing on Etsy is everything we love: unique, geeky, and high quality. The onesie is availble in sizes 6m to 18m in super soft 100% cotton with soft printing designed and done by hand in Calgary. And the design is such a marvelous take on “Star Wars is...

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...
