I had so much fun finding gift items for little ones that I had to make this guide longer than others. We were in Boston for Thanksgiving, and I found so much inspiration wandering my favorite neighborhoods (the South End and Beacon Hill).Read More
One of our most-used items of baby paraphernalia when Blythe was born was our Solly Wrap, which we have in the Natural & Grey Stripe. I was skeptical of baby wraps because I was convinced there was no way I'd figure out how to wrap it such that I was certain Blythe wouldn't just fall out the bottom, but after watching this video (for how to carry a newborn) and practicing a few times, it was our favorite way to carry Blythe (Rob, in particular, used it regularly). Blythe was always so cozy in the wrap and it was particularly helpful for days when she was fussy and wanted to be held while she slept but we actually need to get something done around the house.
Solly Baby recently announced that they've partnered with Rifle Paper Co. to launch the cutest floral print wrap that will be available on September 14th. If you have a little one on the way or know someone who does, this would make a fantastic gift. Check out their fun video about the collaboration on the Solly blog.

Do you still use a regular notebook or planner? I rely on my iPhone calendar, but I keep my ever-growing to do list and jot notes in an old school, lined notebook (currently, a Moleskine Classic Notebook, one for work and one for personal use). Jotting down tasks and notes and crossing off items on my to do list gives me an immense amount of satisfaction (I have not idea what that says about me), and while I like the standard black notebook for work, I may need something more festive for personal use. Enter Appointed "Desktop Products." I'm obsessed with their incredibly classic and beautiful notebooks. Appointed launched in 2015 after a successful Kickstart campaign and makes American-made, thoughtfully-designed desktop products. I'm smitten and am coveting the monogrammed blossom pink notebook pictured above. And how about a weekly planner?
Or perhaps one in chambray?
Also, how fun are the sticky notes?
