Holiday Gift Guide: Sweet Ideas for Babies
Sweet baby’s first (or second) holiday? One thing is clear, you want the cleanest, purest products for them, without sacrificing style. Our list keeps them chic and clean:
Traveling in style: Keep baby close, comfortable and ergonomic with the Rose Harmony Organic Collection Ergobaby carrier made with Oeko-Tex certified 100% Organic Cotton fabric, sure to be gentle on baby’s skin. With soft pink tones, an all-over tonal print and striped lining, this new carrier is as delicate and sweet as the passenger onboard. From Ergobaby – $130 USD.
That Sweet Baby Smell: Earth Mama products are hospital recommended, certified, herbal and effective and meant to be as Safe as Mama’s Arms.™ Organic body wash, shampoo, lotion and bottom balm, you’ll find something wonderful made with love and Mother Nature’s gifts from the earth to keep baby smelling sweet and clean. From Earth Mama Angel Baby – gifts from $19.99 USD.
Let them Sleep: Mamas swear by this hammock for newborns. The Okoa (meaning save or redeem in Kiswahili) takes the beauty of bassinet/hammock to a whole new level. Manufactured from sustainable European beech wood and detailed with aluminum castings, this stand will accentuate any room with its graceful curves and unique design. From Baby Earth – $349.00 USD.
Early Artisan Appreciation: Artisans in Kyrgyzstan hand make these Handmade Zebra Slippers from locally-sourced sheep’s wool. The slippers are made in small batches, with the natural wool that is dyed, spun, and felted before getting cut and stitched into soft shoes that resemble this bold, black-and-white animal. Handmade in Kyrgyzstan. From Uncommon Goods – $38.00 USD.
Everyday Organic: All PACT apparel is sweatshop free, ethically produced, and part of a movement transforming the way apparel is made. Baby basics include short and long sleeve snappers, pollen pants, beanies and socks from 0-18 months (maybe grab some organic basics for mom while you are there!) Available at Whole Foods, on the PACT site, or through Amazon – starts at $11.99.
Baby in Black: Hip NYC boutique Goat Milk Kidware never lets us down and is one of the few places to find pieces that are both organic but in a ‘New York palette’. This 100% organic lightweight cotton romper is a collaboration with Sarah Muenchrath, acclaimed kids clothing designer. From Goat Milk Kidware – $45.00 USD.
For Baby and Mama: Teething babies always want to put stuff in their mouths (and you don’t want to know nasties can be in costume jewelry). Give mama a piece of modern, fashionable silicone teething jewelry that baby will also enjoy. Made from food grade silicone, the collection of necklaces and bracelets are not only non-toxic, BPA and phthalate-free, but also dishwasher safe. From Mama & Little – $25.00 USD.
