Make your kids’ Easter baskets a hundred times more adorable by adding some playful chicks and bunnies to your list of Easter basket gift ideas for kids–of course along with some of our favorite Easter candy and Easter-themed gifts.

Featuring a bunny, dog, and cat, they may end up on the...

Adorable spring clothing for kids, because it’s almost warm. Really. It is.

Time to peel your child out of the seventeen layers of winter clothing and think about short-sleeved dresses, rompers and sunhats. No, seriously. All you have to do is look at that gorgeous kurta top in the Rikshaw Design line of spring clothing for kids to know why this small label one of our major faves.   With their hand block-printed florals and animals on the softest Indian cotton voile, these cap sleeve dresses, bubble rompers, and burp & bib sets just (gently) scream warmer temperatures and comfy lounging for babies and toddlers. Oh, and did we mention the perfect sunhat? If only we could get a...

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...

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....

Team Star Wars or Doctor Who? Crocheted hats for little geeks in training

What can we say? We heart these adorable crocheted hats, which are just as good for fighting crime in the playroom as they are for keeping little ears warm on Hoth. Our pals at Geekling have a new line for babies and kids: geeky crocheted hats. [Updated link] They’re beautifully handmade in soft, stretchy cotton yarn and available in four sizes from newborn up to XL (which supposedly fits ages 3 to 8). But here’s a secret: that Leia hat fits me just fine, and my head is by no means small. I know what I’m wearing on May the...

Baby hats that will make you squee. (We won’t tell, promise.)

It has always been a fight to persuade my children to keep their winter hats on their heads. Even when the sky is dumping snow, I find their hats behind the couch and stuffed in coat pockets–anywhere but on their poor freezing heads. Thankfully, I’m hopeful this scenario is about to change. I’m thinking they might fall in love with these hats, just like I did. (I have a hunch you might, too.) You might recall that Cate and Levi is a longtime favorite of ours. Now they’ve gone from upcycled dolls and handmade wall art to these adorable...

Modern baby blankets – I’ll take one of each, please

When giving a gift to an expecting mother, I prefer finding something that’s of very good quality, a reasonable price point and aesthetically pretty–but practical at the same time. Fortunately, those three thing are becoming easier to find all together. Especially at this amazing new shop. My first response when seeing Little Hip Squeaks was pure excitement. This new Etsy shop has the cutest products all made from soft organic jersey in a variety of patterns and colors from vivid chevrons to owls to marching elephants. Owner Amy Richardson designs all of the fabrics herself. Also everything from her...

The cutest baby beanies ever. Or maybe the second cutest…

As a mom, I remember my babies living in the classic white onesie, which is an easy piece to pair with pops of color. So I always appreciate finding beanies for babies that have lots of personality and vibrancy. These brand new handmade earflap baby beanies from get your craft on! SHOP are adorable! Just about as adorable as the mom tattoo baby beanie we love so much, that’s featured right up top in our baby shower gift guide this year.                                 The hats come in a variety of colors and sizes, with a great pop art sensibility, and...

Editors Best of 2011: The coolest baby clothes

Boy, baby clothes have come a long way from when your choices were pink onesies, blue onesies, or yellow onesies for “surprise” babies. Here, just a few of our favorite fabulous baby clothes picks of the year. Lucky babies. Fore!! Axel + Hudson Kristen: These awesome golf-inspired boys clothes (at top) are cool, not stuffy, and we love that they come in baby sizes too, right down to the hats.

You can leave your hat on

My son will pretty much live with a baseball cap attached to his head for the next few sunny months, since getting sunscreen applied to his mane of light-blonde hair is a messy disaster.  But, there are many times when his sports-logo’d baseball cap seems out of place, like wearing dirty sneakers with a spiffy suit. So I’m so happy to have found lids for kids that are way cool. {keep reading for a great discount and giveaway!} Made by the same people who brought us these too-cute argyle beanies, Born to Love’s lightweight kids’ fedoras have a sharp, grown-up look...

Jughead 2011

Our kids may never debate the merits of Betty vs. Veronica or laugh at Jughead’s ability to gulp down hamburgers. But you still have to admit that this crown-style hat hearkens back to the golden days of Archie, before all comic book characters either had creepy muscles or overly-huge eyes. And you have to admit that it rocks. Lovingly dubbed The Royal by Etsy seller TipsyToesKnits of Halifax, Canada, this adorable crown is available in a wide range of colors and would be the perfect topper for you favorite prince or princess. Simply choose a size from newborn to...

Elf hats! Elf hats!

I’m a little picky when it comes to winter hats on kids–although you’d hardly know it looking at our ridiculous hat collection. I like hats with ears but not horns. I like skull caps on girls but in more boyish colors. And I always like elf hats. The wool jersey elf hat fom Mabo Kids definitely satisfies all my criteria–cute, affordable, and with a playful shape but a sophisticated stripe. Knot it if you like that look better, but I love it long and as elf-like as possible. There’s even a cute little scarf to match. Sweet! –Liz [via...

New kids accessories from Appaman – Hot (or cold) for Fall

After all these years of crushing hard on the cool kid’s clothes from Appaman, it’s high time that they added an accessories line. And just in time for back to school time. I’m really digging their hats, like the pilot hat in a cool striped fabric and faux fur lining. The girl’s Igloo hat looks great too, and isn’t drenched in pink – a nice alternative to many of the girl’s caps out there. You’ll also find a small but stylish array of kids’ gloves, mittens, and scarves, all of which are a cute way to top off Appaman’s...

Mommy’s little gentleman

It always seems like girls get the pick of the litter when it comes to cool accessories and boys are relegated to fourteen varieties of baseball caps. So if you’ve got a little hat connoisseur of the male persuasion, I strongly suggest this adorable spade canvas child’s driver cap from My Baby Clothes Boutique. The canvas is super light and lined with a cute cotton plaid, and it’s constructed to fit a bit loosely so it won’t make those little brows sweaty. Golfer in the family or not, this timeless cap is such an unexpected way to top off...

Baby sunhats go bohemian

Finding a baby hat I loved was like…well, something that was really hard. For some reason they were always too floppy, too stiff, or too cutesie (seriously, enough with the huge bows at the chin). But Rikshaw Design just nails it with their adorable new baby sunhat. We first discovered this company’s lovely bohemian crib bedding and I’m so glad designer Catherine Fitzsimmons has taken the plunge into clothing and accessories. I love the simple, Indian-inspired unisex patterns like the booti, shown here. The cotton voile is machine washable (yay) and even the thin chin strap on the hat...

A baby cap with a little more to it

Over the past few years at Cool Mom Picks I’ve seen the reinvention of the high chair, the baby carrier, the baby bottle and the bouncy chair. The last newborn essential I thought needed any improvement was the baby hat. Well color me surprised, but Honeydumplings, which created the buckwheat toddler pillow I went mad for last year, has gone and done just that. Their new baby cap on first glance just looks like a simple, go-with-anything, creamy, gender-neutral cap. Soft as butter with that bamboo cotton jersey or organic sherpa, but you know – still a cap. When...
