Sesame Street + Tattly = Best stocking stuffer ever. For the kids, too.

I have a longstanding love affair with Sesame Street, so you can imagine my excitement when I discovered that our friends at Tattly recently teamed up with the Sesame Workshop to create a Sesame Street character set of temporary tattoos. Yes, I understand that they’re for kids, and don’t get me wrong, I know a few kids who will be finding these in their stockings this year. But I’m digging them for myself, too, which is why I’m excited they’ve got a Sesame Street Nostalgia set for us old people. I can’t be the only one who secretly wanted a Grover tattoo. Or…...

20 awesome stocking stuffer ideas under $20 all from The Container Store. Convenience FTW!

As the holiday season gets kicking into high gear, we’re reminding ourselves to simplify as much as possible so that we can really enjoy the holidays with our families. That means cutting down the time we spend running — or clicking — from store to store to get everything we need. Doesn’t that sound wonderful? Which is why we’re excited to welcome our newest sponsor The Container Store, who we happen to love. (Seriously, has anyone in history ever walked out of that store with only one thing? Exactly.) They are far more than bins and organizational needs, if you...

Fresh Prince nail decals? Parents just don’t understand.

The team at Cool Mom Picks always makes fun of me because of my strange aversion to nail art. (Seriously, do you see any nail art on our Pinterest boards? Exactly.) The way some people hate feet, I’m a little weird about close-up photos of nails. And yet I’ve finally come around — something I never thought I’d do — if only because I can’t stop laughing at the awesome assortment of pop culture nail decals from our friends at indie shop Shana Logic, illustrated by That Jane Designs. When I was a kid, I never in a million years thought there would...

Toyboarders: Little green army men like, totally transformed, dude.

I know a lot of parents have a fondness for those little green army men toys of their youth (and the Toy Story franchise) but not everyone wants their kids playing around with guns. So I have to give props to Toyboarders which transformed the idea into a kinder, gentler, and more rad toy option. The sets of 24 little 2″ tall men — and women and kids  — can include skaters, snowboarders, or surfers. And these guys clearly know their stuff, considering actual skaters and boarders will recognize the 8 different poses. but whether your kid knows a tube ride...

Shwings make old kids’ shoes new. With extra super powers.

A few years back we discovered the brilliance of Smallfly on Etsy, which made cool lightning bolts and wings to lace onto the sides of your sneakers. And our readers went crazy for them–because you are all highly discerning shoppers with excellent taste, of course. But as often happens, small shops like that disappear (sniff) and we find similar products elsewhere, like in the shop Shwings. From wings, lightning bolts and flames to moustaches, butterfly wings and edgy studded Shwings that look awesome on black high-tops or leather engineer boots, they just make last year’s shoes a little more exciting for kids...

O LEGO tree, O LEGO tree…

If all your kids want for Christmas is more LEGO pieces to add to their never big enough collection, they’ll be thrilled to discover that you can even cover the Christmas tree with those beloved bricks in the form of LEGO ornaments. Here are three great shops to start to help them on their quest for LEGO domination of the world! Or okay, maybe just Christmas tree domination.   If your LEGO fanatics like the building part of LEGO most of all, they’ll be thrilled to receive one of LEGO building master Chris McVeigh’s LEGO ornament kits. I absolutely love the modern designs and cool...

This woodland cookie cutter set takes the cake.

I won’t pretend to understand why my son’s sandwiches, pancakes, and cheese slices taste better when they’re cut into animal shapes, but if using cookie cutters means he’ll eat more than a few nibbles of food, I’m happy to oblige. I like my shapes to be seasonal (yes, I admit this), so I’m all about this Woodland cookie cutter set, which is perfect for the holidays and beyond. If you’ve got a picky eater of your own or a child who loves to bake with you, the set of six cookie cutters would make an awesome gift for a kid, and they’re conveniently packaged in a pink...

Mitscoots: Stylish socks on a mission

When I first moved to New York City I quickly realized that good shoes and socks are a must in this town of walking, walking, walking.  Since then I have become something of a sock connoisseur. Seriously. I need socks that are stylish, comfortable and, of course, warm. Our newest find, Mitscoots socks give me all that, and then they give more. US-made Mitscoots socks (who does that anymore?) were conceived from the founders’ time volunteering with the homeless in Austin. They created a company that’s more than the buy one/donate one model we love–they added the idea of employment to the equation. Which means they...

Mitten stockings: creative stocking idea in a pinch

Every so often, we end up with an unexpected visitor on Christmas who would of course need his or her own stocking. Once it was a friend’s child, once it was our dog who we forgot to hang a stocking for–who knew my kids would be so adamant about that one. So I think this mitten stocking idea at Martha Stewart is super clever. No, you don’t have to scramble for knitting supplies right now; even a leftover pair or an inexpensive pair at a local discount store could do the trick, unless you want the mittens themselves to...
