New Holiday Toys from Design Within Reach

I believe that one timeless, spectacular gift beats a pile of presents that will be forgotten and discarded within months. So if you’re looking for one really special gift that can be treasured for years to come, you can shop at DWR this holiday season. I love their collection of holiday gifts for the kids or kid at heart. Of course, for me, you could just buy anything from DWR and you’ll be my favorite.

Gifts and Goodies from Gap

These holiday stripes remind me of a blanket I got from Gap for my first niece before she was born more than 13 years ago! I loved the bright, bold colors for baby and am so excited they’ve got this colorful pattern out this season!  So fun.

While the striped Brannan teddy bear is my favorite (paired with the Holiday stripe blanket), all the simple solid and patterned bears from the Gap this winter make great holiday or shower gifts. Really cute.

These rattle toy cushions are also really sweet as stocking stuffers. $8

Interactive Playsets from Corby Tindersticks

I take pride in being familiar with the products in most nurseries and being able to find them quickly online, but I admit that I had trouble finding the items on Gabriel’s rug

Gabriel's Rug

I recognized the doll as being from Corby Tindersticks and assumed the orange pieces were as well, but couldn’t find them anywhere… until today! I happened to be browsing Milk Moostache, of one of our lovely advertisers, and BAM! There it was!

It’s the Interactive Road Atlas from Corby Tindersticks! $60

And if this cute little set isn’t enough, how about the Interactive World Weather Map?

And the Interactive Clock too! It’s not too soon to start shopping for the holidays- hint, hint.

Fun, right?

Limited Edition Holiday Gifts from The Land of Nod

I’m giving you the heads up on these limited edition gift items from The Land of Nod. These are the grand finales for your holiday gift giving, but be sure to order soon because there are only a few of each.

My favorite is this Bungalow Play Home. It’s for indoor use only, but this modern playhouse will be the highlight of the playroom. $700

Nearly as dramatic is the Grandest Prix Plush Speedster. It’s both fun to play with as well as an exciting decor statement. $250

grandest-prix-plush-speedster-limited-edition

Finally these three giant limited edition plushies can be your child’s new best friend and plaything. They’ve got Paleo Plush (aka Spike), Sugar Plum Hippo and Giant Plush-Bot. If nothing else, they’re more unique than the ubiquitous giant giraffe.  $250 each.

Hope it’s not too early to start talking “holidays,” but forgive me! These are limited editions and I don’t want you to miss out.

Go-To Baby Shower Gifts 2014

As readers of Buy Modern Baby, you’re not just looking for the most exceptional products for your own kids, I know you love to share the best baby products with your friends and loved ones.  When it comes to giving baby shower gifts, you’ve got a secret weapon here since my eyes are open looking for this type of thing all year long.  These are my picks for the best go-to baby shower gifts that will wow moms-to-be this year.

It’s the best gift that they didn’t even know that they wanted.  The Puj Splash Bath Set includes the Flyte compact infant bath that fits in the sink, a Hug hands-free hooded infant towel, 3 Puj Nubs and 3 washcloths all packed in a beautiful gift box.  $75

Puj Splash Baby Shower Gift Set

A smaller but equally lovely gift is the Baby Grooming Kit from Rhoost.  This includes a hairbrush, comb, nail clipper and washcloth in an easy to wrap box.   Everything is 100% natural and organic. $35

Rhoost Baby Grooming Kit

Personalized baby blankets are always a popular gift.  We loved the one we got, but we would have been so much more excited to get one of the incredibly cool personalized baby blankets from Jennifer Ann.  Anything with your baby’s name on it is an instant treasure, and these are a perfect modern option.  $56-$84

fisherblanketwithguitarleggingsforwebsite_zps0433a155

If you don’t have time for the custom options, a pack of aden + anais muslin swaddle blankets ($40-$50) is a can’t-miss idea.  Even if someone else gifts a set, you can never have too many.  I’ve even been planning to get an aden + anais blanket for my biggest baby, aka my husband!  The Classic Daydream Blanket will be perfect for HIS naps, but don’t tell him I said that.

The super practical shower gift is diapers and wipes, so unless you know they’re going to be using cloth diapers, a diapers and wipes bundle from The Honest Co. is the most stylish, modern, eco-friendly version.  Diapers are stylish?  Yeah, these kinda are.  Start with The Honest New Baby Arrival Kit ($50) or step up to a month of Honest diapers and wipes ($80).

Some additional reader suggestions from Facebook included Boon grass, books (which I love to give), a gift certificate from Chloe Marty and a sound machine.

Giantsuper Stuns with High-Design Animal Alphabet Flashcards

A quick search for alphabet-related items on our blog reveals that we absolutely love seeking out cleverly illustrated, modern designs for you. Today we feature alphabet flashcards which could easily double as gorgeous artwork for your nursery and child’s room.

giantsuper_top

Giantsuper was founded by father-of-two, Paul Lee. Paul originally illustrated the super-deluxe set of flashcards for his son when he was learning the alphabet. The cards feature modern, iconic animal designs enclosed in a beautiful, premium box.

giantsuper_slant

I’m not sure that I have ever used the word ‘gorgeous’ to describe flashcards before, but I am pretty certain that these qualify for that use. They are gorgeous!

giantsuper_ex

Each card has a detailed animal image in the center, with corresponding capital letter in the top left corner and animal name on the bottom right. The animals look as if they are created in origami form and they seem to hold motion on each card.

giantsuper_indiv

They really are incredible. Also incredible is the affordable price point.

For more detailed images, you can check out the full alphabet here, and you can purchase a set of these beautiful flashcards on Amazon.
