So much coolness. Where to start…

The Muse of Children’s Fashion

The Muse of Children’s Fashion

Some people you just want to hate. For example, a former model-turned-mom who still looks like a model. But when you get to know her a bit and find out she’s also nice and cool and smart and has a great kid, AND designs unbelievably awesome childrens clothes, well dammit, you just can’t be a hatah.

Pour Some Sugar on Me

Pour Some Sugar on Me

While we love the monogrammed and personalized everything for kids these days, we’re always on the prowl for something that says "my mom thinks out of the box." We may have stumbled upon just that over at Sugar Roux.

Who Said Leather Was Out?

Who Said Leather Was Out?

Bibs are a funny thing. You swear you never want to use them, but after a few soaking wet shirts (thanks to the drool machine known as your child), you get over it. And fast. I'm pretty sure I washed way more bibs than I thought ever existed. And then I threw half of...

Pick Your Man a PacMan

Pick Your Man a PacMan

Ever struggle over what to get your husband for Father’s Day because he just won’t tell you? Fear not, adventurers: If your baby’s daddy was a child of the 80’s, he’ll love receiving a video game from his misspent youth, one at which he can actually beat the kids of today.

Summer Essentials for the Dad in Your Life

Like most men, this entails digging out those flip flops from storage, loading up on some steaks, firing up the BBQ grill and enjoying some cool alcoholic beverages with friends.

Build Your Own Blocks

Build Your Own Blocks

We come across quite a few personalized products at CMP. Apparently if you put someone’s kid’s name on something no matter how useless or inane (monogrammed bottle sterilizer, anyone?) it’s a surefire hit.

Do You Remember Rock ‘n’ Roll?

Do You Remember Rock ‘n’ Roll?

Remember when you were both younger and would go see bands play at the local club? If you’re like me, your kids came along and put an end to that. Is it really worth forking over seventy bucks for a sitter to see your nephew’s garage band fumble its way though Sweet Home Alabama?

One Less Thing for Dads to Freak Out About

One Less Thing for Dads to Freak Out About

You know what about impending fatherhood freaks me out more than anything else? That my nice little sleek-and-minimal- with-a-side-of-organic-cotton aesthetic will be buried under the inevitable onslaught of pastel plaid ruffles and battery-powered, light-flashing, muzak-emitting "baby crack".

I Stand Here Ironing (And Looking Fabulous)

I Stand Here Ironing (And Looking Fabulous)

Ironing, cooking, cleaning, scrubbing: Hardly my description of a day well-spent. But we may have discovered one way to overcome your reluctance to plow through your chore list on a sunny Sunday. BlipShop, the online boutique of British mum and designer Emma Carey,...

Say it With Your Necklace

Say it With Your Necklace
