A patriotic T-shirt that reminds us of what makes America wonderful.

Though I’ve heard a lot of people joke that they’ll be shipping themselves over the Canadian border if this year’s presidential election doesn’t go the way they hope, I know that for the vast majority of us, there’s no place like home. Especially the home we’ve created for our kids; you know, the one that promotes the best qualities our country was built upon like freedom, acceptance, and diversity. So if you too want your kids and others to remember why we think America is already great, thankyouverymuch, here’s a wonderfully patriotic T-shirt from Seattle’s Free to be Kids. Their ethically...

Super rad Father’s Day T-shirts? Check.

Whether the special father in your life goes by Dad, Pop, or Daddy-O, you can celebrate the year he earned that title with one of Branded’s personalized cotton tees. We love this idea for the coolest Father’s Day T-shirts, which, by the way, we also included in our 2016 Baby Shower Gift Guide. They have just about every naming option I can think of for both dads and grandfathers or other important father figures in your life, or you can customize a shirt with the moniker that will fit him just right. I love the distressed vintage lettering that gives the shirt a well-worn look right...

Our favorite gifts inspired by our favorite Children’s Book Week posters

I hate to admit it, but every once in a while I find myself fussing at my kids, “Put that book down and come on!” But, I have to say, I truly love when they’re nose-deep in a book. And I’m on a lifetime quest to forever encourage my kids’ love of reading. So, in honor of Children’s Book Week this week, we think everyone should grab a copy of the 2016 Children’s Book Week poster created by illustrator Brian Won. It’s free, while supplies last, from Book Week Online. Whoo! Related: The ultimate list of the best kids’ books of 2015 And if you’re feeling a wee bit nostalgic for...

Book cover tees that promote smarts over sass

RJ Palacio’s Wonder is one of those rare books that simply stays with you for a long time. At least for me and for my daughters, who often bring up this phenomenal YA novel in the course of everyday conversation, and refer back to it  when we have those hard talks about injustice or social dynamics or the politics of friendship. So when I saw our friends at Litographs had added a new Wonder tee to their collection of graphic tees all designed from the words of novels, I knew I had a new favorite. Big news all around for Litographs t-shirt...

Behind every product is a person: Excellent reminder from Krochet Kids.

We first featured Krochet Kids a few years back, and immediately loved this non-profit’s mission of creating gifts that give back, to help provide job training and a sustainable income source in impoverished communities around the globe. While they have big hearts, they have great taste too; their items are really stylish and wearable, something I also look for when we find fantastic fair trade companies to share here. Related: To the Market: Fashionable gifts and accessories that reinvent women’s lives. Now the organization has added one more cool item to their catalog: A t-shirt created in collaboration with Jeff Sheldon, who you might better know as Ugmonk. The...

The ABCs of Game of Thrones: A is for Arya

Hi, my name is Liz and I’m obsessed with Game of Thrones. So I’m cheering that the show has earned 24 well-deserved Emmy nominations — though oddly, no nods for comedy after that really bizarre Sandsnake fight scene in Dorne. In any case, while our children may be too young to watch the show (I told mine that 30 was an appropriate age), they’re not too young to know that W is for Winterfell. Or White Walker. Or, WHAT THE $&*!-ING  $&^%! which is pretty much what I screamed as the closing credits rolled after every episode this past season. Okay, maybe kids are a little young for that...

An Elements of Style t-shirt for those who don’t have to ask what that is.

As a bona fide (oh look, I used a fancy Latin word!) word nerd, I have a particular fondness for gifts that we’ve featured here like the grammar police mugs or fun books for kids that play with language. But then, alas, I am imperfect. I spell occasionally wrong the first three times, every time; and I can never remember the difference between toward and towards. So I thank the heavens for Mr. Strunk and Mr. White, whose dogeared Elements of Style I bought in college—yes, the actual paperback book–still remains within arms-reach of my computer. So of course I’m happy to see that our friends at...

Home T shirts : When you’re proud to be…well, from wherever you’re from.

I smiled right away when I discovered Home T shirts, and you probably will too. Because hey, Texans aren’t the only ones happy to show a little state pride. These super soft, US-made adult tees, kids tees, and baby onesies cover all 50 states, plus Puerto Rico, Cuba, the UK, and even the entire continents of Australia and Africa, simply featuring the word Home over a screen-printed state silhouette. And in a thorough nod to democracy, even DC gets representation here. I support that.   I only feel bad for Colorado Home T wearers, because it just looks like the word Colorado over a big...

Wait wait, don’t tell me: Awesome gifts from NPR

Working in the independent music world, I have a high esteem for non-commercial radio and of course the mother of it all, NPR. Supporting public radio is so important to me, as they rely heavily on listener funding to stay afloat. So if you find yourself still looking for that clever gift for the in-tune intellectual on your list, I’ve got some ideas for awesome NPR gifts from their incredibly smart and hip shop. You know, should you already have an Ira Glass finger puppet.   We love reusable grocery bags and naturally a bag is a great place to proclaim your love for public...

Oh 80’s movies, how we love you in a single sentence.

I am so losing myself in this awesome collection of t-shirts on Fab.com from Stereotype Design. Each one describes a popular movie in a single sentence–like if you were a screenwriter, only you had to pitch the screenplay it just took you 12 years to write on Twitter in 140 characters. Of course first place goes to the boombox reference.  (I just can’t quit you, Lloyd Dobler.) The geek in me loves the War Games tee and the Star Wars tee too. But you have to give a nod to A Christmas Story for the holiday season, right? It’s too fun to...
