The Holidays are Here...And so are great gifts!

Yes, the stores were playing Christmas music since before Halloween, but finally, tis the season when I can actually enjoy the music. It's always a challenge to find a really great gift - something unique, special, and perfect. For a preschooler, I just can't say enough about Books to Bed. Books to Bed offers a great pajama and book set, with matching illustrations on the pajamas to coordinate with the book. My two daughters love this idea, and they wear their Ella the Elephant pajamas every single night. And subsequently, I then have to read the book every single night. Time to invest in a new set so we can move onto a new book! Thank goodness that they also offer How Do Dinosaurs Say Goodnight, which is also an all time favorite. For smaller babies, I simply adore the shearling lined booties by Little E.D.A. Just looking at them, I know that my littlest daughter's toes are toasty and warm in these fabulous booties. My only complaint is that I wish that they made them in adult sizes!

This week's hot bestseller....

The Kimono Robe by Tea Collection. It's cute, stylish, and perfect for the fall, which explains why this beautiful sweater by Tea Collection has been flying off the shelves. It's just a great piece. Moms will love it because of its versatility - it can be worn with a skirt or over jeans - and kids will love it because it is soft and comfortable. Tea Collection once again comes through wtih a great signature piece. In a few more weeks, I am sure this sweater will be very hard to find, since it is being snatched up at an amazing speed.

Wes and Willy - Active Clothes for the Active Little Boy!

I am the mom of three little girls, but most my friends seem to have little boys. They are also telling me how difficult it can be to find adorable boy's clothing. I must admit, buying clothes for my daughter's is a lot of fun, but when I discovered Wes and Willy for boys, I felt a tad bit jealous that none of my children would be able to wear these great pieces. Wes and Willy has a wonderful collection of boy's clothing that is hip and trendy, while being designed to withstand rough and tumble playing. They make everything from jackets (the camouflage jacket is my favorite!) to graphic long sleeved tees to fleece pants. Every piece has some kind of funky detail to make it unique, but the quality is what I really love. Each piece just feels well made, and the fact that it is so cute is an added bonus. I adore my daughters, but with Wes and Willy, I kind of find myself wishing I had a little guy to dress up!

Shearling Booties - Sure to Keep Little One's Feet Toast

With the cold weather coming soon, I am always looking for great ways to keep my littlest daughter's feet warm because sometimes socks just don't do the trick! At two months, I think she is really too small to invest in a pair of real shoes, but she is just the perfect age for these cozy and snug shearling baby booties by Little E.D.A. Not only are they just too adorable, but the 100% genuine sheepskin, along with the shearling insides, will definitely keep her tootsies toasty on cold days. They are so cute and different that I just had to let other mommies know about them. I also think they would make a perfect gift. Even if Gwyenth Paltrow and Kate Hudson did discover Little E.D.A first, I consider them one of my greatest finds. What little one wouldn't love to have their feet wrapped in shearling baby booties - I just wish they made them for adults!

Room Seven - A Fabulous Fall Collection

Calling all little girls! The Fall 07' Room Seven line has arrived, and it is simply wonderful. As usual, Room Seven has created a collection of dresses, skirts, and tops that are colorful, original, stylish - all sure to make little girls feel like a princess. I am always impressed with the quality of Room Seven clothing. It really has to be seen and felt to be fully appreciated. All of the clothing from Room Seven is created with the finest of fabrics, but it is the attention paid to small details that really make this one of my very favorite lines. You'll find lots of beautiful embroidered accents, as well as strategically placed pleats, ruffles, and bows. All of the finishing touches are subtle and classy, but they really make Room Seven stand out above the rest of the crowd. I really do love every piece, but to choose a few favorites, I would have to start with their signature Saffran Patchwork Skirt. Whether you like the blue or crimson version, it is truly gorgeous and has quickly become my daughter's favorite. She can't wait for the cooler weather so she can actually wear it! We also love the cocoa Doress dress - perfect for the holidays, we have already put this one away for Thanksgiving. I can't end until I mention the stunning Doy Dress. Everything about this dress is amazing - from the fabric, to the style, to the little details. I will have a hard time getting this dress off of my daughter this season!

Handpainted Knobs - The perfect finishing touch!

Just when I thought I couldn't make my daughter's room any more girlie, I discovered these beautiful handpainted knobs and knew that I had found the perfect finishing touch. When I put them onto my newest little one's changing table, it made the room absolutely complete. Each knob is custom made to order, and they are gorgeous. The detailing is fabulous and they can be designed to match any color scheme or room theme. Handpainted knobs would make a wonderful baby gift as well! As a mom myself, I know I would have loved to have someone buy this for me. I know that I plan to buy some for soon-to-be mommy friends of mine - they make perfect room decor for babies and children of all ages. What a great idea!

Tea Collection's Fall 07' Line

It's no wonder that Tea Collection has consistently remained one of my very favorite designers. Both stylish and functional, each piece is made of the finest quality materials, and the new fall line surpasses all of my expectations - which I admit were quite high! Tea Collection has designed their lines to mix and match, so all of the pieces coordinate with each other, which makes it very easy to put together many great outfits with just a few pieces of clothing. I particularly love the fall collection, with its vibrant colors and great styles. For boys clothing, Tea offers a great assortment of jeans, pants, button downs, and casual tops. The girls clothing is also simply fabulous - with a great mix of skirts, leggings, pants, and tops. What's not to love about Tea Collection! My only complaint is that it's hard to choose just a few pieces from such a great selection of clothing.
