Crochet Open Circle Pendant
By Elwyn Estlin

So delicate and original. Great for those times you want to wear the color gold, but maybe not so much actual gold.

Organic Baby Quilt
By SewnNatural

Now that everyone is having fun with modern colored strollers, it’s smart to keep the blanket to a neutral. This one is not only beautiful and eco-friendly, it’s low-maintenance.

Tumbur Baby Rattle
By Timbur

It’s never too early to introduce babies to good design. (Ha.) Such a lovely keepsake alternative to silver.

Donut Wool Felt Coaster Set
By Moufelt

We love the pop-y shapes and the bold red color just makes you feel happy. Much prettier than rings on the coffee table.

Gold Vines Pop-out Earrings
By Melissa Borrell

We’re long-time fans of Melissa Borrell. Her jewelry is original, affordable, and always generates compliments.

*Panda Baby T-shirt

The quirky panda graphic from this Netherlands designer is so much cuter than the ubiquitous duck motif.

Chain Letterpress Set
By OrangeBeautiful

The design is so stylish and versatile. Use it for everything from interview thank you notes to letters to your Grandma. (Write your Grandma! She misses you!)

Laptop Sleeve- White Leather with Wool Felt
By Charbonize

We’re always looking for cool gadget cases for Cool Mom Tech. The crowning touch on this beautiful one is having your monogram or name added right to the sewing tag.

Organic Newborn Noonie
By Lalas Pequenos

We love how she’s reinvented the sleepsac with the Noonie—so perfect for spring walks while the baby naps in the bassinet.

Personalized Paris Print
By Ruka-Ruka

What a special gift for the brand new baby of a stylish mama. Guaranteed they won’t have one yet.
