I love being a mom of boys, but I envy my mom-of-girls friends one wee thing: Barrettes. Especially when I see ones as cute as the felt barettes from Redhaven. Redhaven’s no-slip barrettes are handmade of 100% wool felt; each set of three includes two hearts and a mitten and is available in one of five shades. I love these barrettes because they’re super sweet but not overly frilly; the felt designs are funky and fun. They’re perfect for the holidays, but unlike Christmas tree or Santa designs, your little one can wear these all winter long. –SusanYou can...Read More
In our family, Christmas stockings have always been a really important aspect of our family tradition. Even on years we skip the tree for whatever reason, those stockings just make the house feel festive and fun. So I really love seeking out terrific Christmas stockings for our readers that their families will truly love. We’ve seen a lot of cool stockings over the years like the ones from Ahna Holder or the custom Kata Golda stockings on our holiday gift guide this year. But the Christmas Stockings from RikRak studios, made of eco-friendly fabric created out of recycled plastic...Read More
It’s no secret that mail is cool. I’ll bet I’m not the only person who still gets a little flutter of excitement when I come home to see envelopes poking out the top of my mailbox. In fact, I know I’m not the only person because my daughter usually races me to the porch to see what’s there. I can only imagine, then, the fun she would have with the new Letters to Grandma and Grandpa Mail Set which can be found at one of CMP’s favorite gift shops, What Every Baby Needs. This adorable wool felt set is an...Read More
Honestly, I think of felt and often I think “meh.” But I’ve just seen the light, because the light, apparently, comes in the form of felt cushion wall hangings featuring bunnies and Matryoshka dolls that would brighten up any nursery in the world. If you aren’t slain by the cuteness of the Starry Night and Walking in the Rain cushions offered by Enna Design Shop on Etsy and all the remarkable attention to detail, definitely check out her assortment of plushies, too. If none of those speak to you, consider the possibility that you have no soul. I’m not...Read More
When I was young, I loved playing house. Tea parties and market shopping were two of my favorite things. I had no idea I was practicing chores I would have to do the rest of my life. Aaaaanyway, felt food is always such a fantastic children’s toy, and the handmade play food sets we’ve featured here are just adorable. So realistic and beautifully made. The pancakes (above) made by BugNikDesigns look good enough to eat. She makes versions with strawberries or blueberries or two sunny side up eggs you can plop right on top. I love this felt play...Read More
