Well, the weather outside is frightful, but inside with baby it is ever so delightful!
This past year we found ourselves gravitating to luxury gifts that displayed steadfast design. We felt the pull of old faithfuls like neutrals and pure materials to welcome 2017’s babies into the lap of comfort. Which is not to say we didn’t have fun playing with the classics, quite the opposite, in fact.
Take a look at our best sellers of 2017:
1) Romper by Buho Barcelona 2) Rattle Toy by Moulin Roty 3) Adventure sweater by Rylee and Cru 4) Set of 3 kimono onesies by Petit Bateau 5) Warm knitted hat by Buho Barcelona 6) Set of 3 kimono onesies by Petit Bateau 7) Bubble onesie by Rylee and Cru 8) Long ears bunny by Maileg 9) Romper and sweater by Buho Barcelona
A repeat favourite, Petite Bateau
, known for their premium high-comfort cotton, offered up baby kimono cut pieces that are easy, durable, and oh-so-very chic. Parents enjoy putting on these fuss-free pieces nearly as much as baby loves snuggling in them. The ever unique Rylee and Cru
collection had an easy but cool vibe owing to their hand dyed garments in soft colours and vintage prints. Even the established fashion houses from Fendi to Karl Lagerfeld
produced sweet patterns in muted pallets. While it might have been something in the air, Canuck company Minimoc
, did not disappoint in keeping baby’s feet well grounded. Their offerings of premium leather baby moccasins ranged from solid colours to a touch of baby bling with golden confetti Mocs. These are but a few of this year’s hits, which we included in our range of baskets for their fluidity across seasons and styles.
We sought out durable pieces with a timeless quality for clothing, but the focus of our search for everything else (toys, skin care, blankets, towels, and bedding) was finding clean design. From materials like wood, organic cotton, and food grade silicone, the name of the game was culling beautiful purposeful objects devoid of nasty chemicals. We hunted for the cutest and purest for 2017’s exclusive baby baskets.
We are busily working ahead to bring beauty and creativity to the earliest stages of life, from the trendies pieces for baby, to toys and accessories that inspire play. Though winter is right outside our window, indoors preparation for the coming promise of spring and summer with fun nautical and beach themes is underway. If this past year was about getting back to the basics to steady us in un unsteady world, this next year brings a full colour palate to embolden us all as we build a loving better tomorrow for the babies of 2018.
From our family to yours, we wish you a Happy New Year!
