Unicorns, lions, and Yoda? Adorable animal winter hats for babies

If you’re a parent of a new baby, you’ll soon find that many experienced moms and grandmothers on the street will stop and tell you: You have to put a hat on your baby during cold winter weather! Some will even suggest you dress your babies this way in spring and fall, and on cooler summer nights too. And this season, I am loving the animal-themed winter hats for babies that’ll make them look stylish and keep them warm all winter. Or, anytime, really. From unicorns horns to long bunny ears, here are some adorable animal winter hats for babies you won’t want to...

Freshly Picked Marketplace: The new indie marketplace you need to bookmark for your holiday shopping

When Kristen and Liz started Cool Mom Picks, their desire was to highlight cool, indie shops that make innovative products with fresh ideas for kids and families. A decade later, that’s still our driving passion, and the chic handmade baby moccasins at Freshly Picked is one of our favorite indie shops to recommend for baby gifts. We’ve always loved Susan Petersen’s eye for style, and now she’s using that to highlight other small businesses too, with the Freshly Picked Marketplace. This online community is a hub of small shops curated by Susan, and when I browsed through the site I immediately added gifts from each one to my holiday shopping...

George and Georgette’s cool kids shoes have an even cooler social mission

There are a lot of things I want to do as a mom, but a big one is to raise the kinds of kids (and eventually, adults) who think about others’ needs before their own. It’s something we talk about a lot in our house — especially around the holidays — whether it’s finding the time to volunteer, donating items to those in need, or even buying for ourselves from companies that are finding ways to give back in a big way. So when I find companies that are doing really cool things that can broaden my kids’ sense of compassion, I’m...

Dragon Gloves: The edgy new trend we’re loving for Halloween.

From the new kids’ movie Pete’s Dragon to Game of Thrones, dragons are getting a good rep these days. Our kids are even talking about being dragons or dragon trainers for Halloween, so when we saw that these dark, edgy dragon gloves at The Scale Maiden were trending on Etsy, we knew we had to share them. Because chances are, someone in your house is obsessed with dragons too. Related: Putting the BOO in Halloween boots for kids. Of course, it’s not just dragons we love supporting, but small businesses too, so I was really excited to find these in an Etsy shop. Each pair is hand-knit in...

Pico Kid jewelry line for girls and boys inspires mini makers

Cool jewelry for both girls and boys that inspires the makers of tomorrow? Found it. Pico Kid, a line of jewelry for girls and boys (or the young at heart), is the latest collection by Pico Design. We’ve featured Andrea Panico’s architectural inspired jewelry collection before when we included it as a Cool Mom Picks Pick of The Year for being one of the Coolest jewelry & accessory brands in 2015. Pico’s latest launch solidifies its spot as a cool brand. Full disclosure: Andrea is my friend and neighbor (Shout out to Montclair!), but it was my love for her jewelry that started our friendship and the rest is history. Andrea was inspired to create...

3 cool no-lace gadgets that make school mornings easier

My youngest child is still learning to tie his shoes. He can get it right about 50% of the time — just enough to be absolutely confident he can do it himself with no help from me thankyouverymuch. As you can imagine, this makes it hard to get out the door on time on school mornings. And his older brother’s teacher isn’t accepting his “my brother can’t tie his shoes” excuse for his tardiness. So, I caved and bought some of those no-tie shoelaces I’ve been seeing advertised all over Facebook — and, honestly, I love them. I’m thrilled to have found...

What makes back-to-school gifts more special? We’re gonna go with llamas.

If you’ve done any back-to-school shopping lately, you may have noticed, like we have, that llamas are taking over the world. Quietly.

The takeover may be inevitable at this point, so I’ve rounded up some of the most adorable llama-themed back-to-school items from around the web that I’ve found. Isn’t it nice when trends are stuff we can say we liked “before they were cool?” Yeah, foxes are kind of 2015. Don’t even get us started on owls.
