5 creative ways to make personalized candy favors and gifts the coolest ever. Look what we made!

My kids believe they are the World’s Greatest Fans of Dylan’s Candy Bar. Which is hilarious, considering that every single one of the zillions of kids who visit their shops each year also believe that they are the World’s Greatest Fans of Dylan’s Candy Bar. So when they joined on as our newest sponsor (yay!), and asked us to take a look at their new selection of personalized candy favors and gifts at the Dylan’s Candy Bar online Design Shoppe (double yay!), you have no idea how quickly I raised my hand. (Sorry, CMP comrades — early bird gets the chocolate.)   -Special Offer:...

The most beautiful Disney invitations, and they happen to be online.

If you have a Disney crazy kid (do I need a pun in here about kids not being able to “let it go?”) you’re going to love this one: Paperless Post, our go-to site for high quality online invitations and stationery has just announced a new line of Paperless Post Disney ecards. Actually, calling them ecards almost does them a disservice; even as someone who isn’t always so keen on the licensed character stuff, I liken the whole series to beautifully designed digital stationery, right down to the typefaces. Hey, when’s the last time you found a Whinny the Pooh or Mickey...

Go Minted! It’s your birthday! And a special discount to celebrate.

We’ve all been huge fans and supporters of Minted long before they were a Cool Mom Picks sponsor, so it seems hard to believe that they are turning seven!

They really are some of the most beautifully designed options that we see anywhere. So in honor of the big Minted birthday celebration (aw, seven is such a fun year), they’re offering a special store-wide discount on everything. We’ve gone through and picked some of our own personal favorites on...

Minted birth announcements, invitations, and artwork for kids just got even more affordable.

We’ve had babies on the brain around here lately for some reason. Maybe it has a little something to do with spring coming–and how soon we’ll be seeing more of those cute little baby toes peeking out from their stroller blankets. So we had the best time checking out all the new Minted birth announcements, cards, artwork and baby gifts, seeing as how they’re one of our favorite stationers–and one of our favorite longtime sponsors. (Thanks, Minted!) It’s always so fun to see what designs their independent artists from around the world are coming up with next.  And the best part...

Cool baby shower invitations for parents not so into the traditional ones.

Cool baby shower invitations aren’t always easy so come by, what with showers tending to overflow with oohing and aahing and sweetness pink and blue everything. Nothing wrong with that at all. But if your parenting style is a bit more wry, I’ve put together some of my favorite cool baby shower invitations that make me smile for reasons more than “a baby’s coming!” Trust me, you’ll need to keep that sense of humor once that little guy or gal is here . If you’re still in shock over the news of your impending arrival–or you’re known for spending way too much...

Custom baby shower invites that make us giggle.

Your baby shower might be your last chance to party without a teddy bear under your arm and a spit-up cloth over your shoulder. If you’re not down with the pastels and fuzzy-wuzzies, here’s a cool and clever baby shower invite from one of our faves, Minted, that’s could be the alcohol-free toast of the town.  We love the personalized baby shower invites with this clever “toast” theme. Prices change depending on quantity, and you can add on extras like premium recycled or pearlescent paper or matching thank-you cards. I really like how clear the pricing structure is, as they show...

Paperless Post has saved my hide on more than one ocassion in the last 3 years since they launched. I’ve used this wonderful service to send digital kids’ party invitations, adult party invitations, thank you notes, and yeah, apology notes for not sending a thank you note sooner. We’re so excited that they’re now launching an extensive collection just for new parents starting today. And we get to be the first to tell you about it! Also? It’s gorgeous. The Paperless Post baby collection is as comprehensive as it is beautiful, with 250 (!!) designs that include shower invitations,...

Making the baby shower even sweeter

I always need another reason to eat cupcakes (well, I don’t need a reason) and now I have one. All I need is a baby shower invitation and I’m all set.

Announcing your excellent taste. Oh, and a baby, too.

We found (and squealed about) the delicious, inventive cards and invitations from Bird and Banner years ago, but it’s been a while since I stopped by to see what’s new. Let’s just say the selection hasn’t quite made me want to have another baby just for the shower invitations, but if I were to be asked to pick them out for you, I would jump at the chance. While Erin and Nicole made a name for themselves working with fabrics (check out the imaginative wedding invitations for Grace Bonney of design*sponge, printed on vintage handkerchiefs!) I love seeing what...
