Wishing you all the best in 2015!
I’m already prepping for Thanksgiving (because we’re having a party of 20-ish!) so I know it’s not too early to add some new titles to your holiday library. We’ve got a selection of turkey titles to get the little ones in the Thanksgiving spirit (or make them vegetarians– I’m not sure).

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
Here’s to 238 years of the U.S. of A!
Enjoy this festive day and stay safe!

The Jewish holiday of Purim begins Saturday night. As an Esther, I’ve always been partial to this celebration of Queen Esther’s heroism in saving the Jews of ancient Persia from destruction. It’s a fun holiday with food, drinking, storytelling, noise-making and parading in masks and costumes. The most popular costumes are of the characters in the story– mainly King Ahasuerus, Queen Esther and the villian of the tale, Haman.
I can’t believe I just realized that Oeuf’s collection of dress-up goodies has you covered for all three characters. There’s a crown for Esther, a beard for the king and a mustache for Haman! ($24-$40)
