A Father’s Day gift that’s worth its weight in sterling

You can tell a lot about a guy by the way he dresses, and in my mind, cufflinks say sophisticated, successful, and now, daddy. Give your kids’ dad these sterling silver Dada cufflinks by Tali Gillette for Father’s Day, so he can wear his love for his kids on his sleeve. Dapper, darling Dad. Awww, right? We found these back in the spring and think they are the perfect gift for any dad, including new dads, which is why we included them in our 2016 Baby Shower Gift Guide. At less than 1-inch long, they’re understated yet stylish enough for his power meetings at work. Plus, they’ll remind...

5 terrific book recommendations for summer reading, from 5 of our favorite people, like Ellie Kemper and David Sedaris

Celebrities! They’re just like us! They get coffee at Starbucks, they wear sweats to the grocery store, and… they read books. Of course, it’s not like we can just give every one of our favorite movie stars, authors, and television personalities a phone call and ask them what’s on their nightstand (our rolodexes aren’t that good) which is why we’re pretty excited to share our newest sponsor, Book of the Month Club  which pretty much does that very thing for you. – Don’t miss a huge limited time discount just for Cool Mom Picks readers below!  –  Instead of using algorithms, Book of the Month...

You don’t need to live in a galaxy far, far away to grab one of these cool inner-space worthy Star Wars kites from Think Geek on May the Fourth or any other day.

What are words for?

One of the coolest gift ideas I’ve ever seen for bibliophiles — besides another book, of course — is Litographs’ literary tees that beautifully transpose the text of your favorite novel and print it, in its entirety, across a cotton tee (trust us, it looks even prettier than it sounds). And now, through a very successful Kickstarter, Litographs is coming out with the ability to customize your text with (almost) anything you choose on one of their comfy tees or an infinity scarf. Litographs can reprint any text in the public domain, including song lyrics, famous speeches, plays, historical works, and even the list of endangered words for...

Tweed wolf: Gorgeous custom photo books with someone else taking care of the customizing.

Have you ever wished someone else would just take your camera roll and turn it into a gorgeous custom photo album? Me too. And, we’re in luck. The relatively new service, Tweed Wolf does it all and beautifully — and just in time for Mother’s Day gifts, too. Related: A comparison of our 11 favorite custom photo book services. Even though I have developed a pretty good habit of going through my camera roll every week or so to delete all those whoops-wrong-angle, child-scowling-not-smiling photos, I still have nearly a thousand keepers just from the last year alone. I presume I’m not the only one who gets...
