jonathan adler juniorI remember when I first heard out about Jonathan Adler Junior. I pretty much foamed at the mouth in anticipation of his pint-sized happy chic design. I knew almost every item would fall into the category of “lust” and not “must,” but if you’re looking for a baby gift for a design-savvy friend, every item will impress.

Just imagine opening up a baby gift and instead of the usual Boppy
cover or layette, it’s a needlepoint pillow with your baby’s initial. Or a kissing giraffe pillow? Or
how about the fabulous elephant clock? Or adorable dachsund bookends in pink or blue? Or the pop-y piggy bank?

I could go on and on and on. And maybe I will.

Jonathan Adler Junior gifts are meant to be displayed and enjoyed for a long time.
I could see that hot pink, dot-ed piggy on my very own dresser, in fact, sometime after my girls have decided they’re over pink. (It could happen.)

Cool Mom Picks Pick of the Year 2010If you want something a little splurgey, it can be nice to give a gift that you know your friend
wouldn’t buy for herself. It might not be as practical as a nursing pillow or a diaper gift certificate, but you do know she will absolutely love it. -Elizabeth
