Want, Need, Wear, Read // Jenny Mitchell

Hello friends! Shopping for the kid’s is so much fun, but I have to admit it’s tough to just keep it to four things. Here are four really sweet items I know my little girl Dorothy would just love to find under our tree!

want: I can totally see my Dotty girl zipping around the neighborhood in this awesome Radio Flyer Bike!

need: When the weather dips, she’ll be super cozy, cute and colorful in this Girl’s Powder Puffer in Yellow!

wear: We love Studio Ghibli movies around our house and this Totoro Hat is sure to bring big smiles!

read:  We love storytime and Now I Am Big &  I Can Do It Myself by Stephen Krensky would be a great addition to our growing library.

So there you have it friends! My Fab Four. What would you get your kiddo? xoxo, Jenny

Be sure to pop on over to Jenny’s fantastic vintage shop, Frecklewonder. It’s always filled with her gorgeous finds and at terrific prices. THANK YOU SO MUCH miss Jenny!!

Want, Need, Wear, Read // Ilana Wiless

want: Bespoke Personalized Quilt from Cheeky Handmades

I had this quilt made for my first daughter to mark her side of the room since she will soon be sharing it with her new baby sister. As soon as I hung it up, I realized it was only a matter of time before the baby asked for one too.

need: Kinderwagon Hop

It’s a lightweight collapsible double stroller! Currently on back order, because what urban-dwelling mother of two wouldn’t want one of those??

wear: I {Pretzel} NY onesie from Piccolini

The cutest onesie for New York City’s littlest residents.

read: Chloe, Instead

This book is the perfect ‘big sister’ gift. It’s about learning to love your little sister even though it’s tough to share your space and your stuff.

Hop on over to Mommy Shorts and be prepared to laugh, cry and stare amazement at Ilana’s witty, fun style! With cute little girl Mazzy AND a new baby, this groovy mommy does it all. THANKS ILANA!

Want, Need, Wear, Read // Arianne Segerman

After three boys this is my first Christmas really shopping for my baby girl. Last year she was just a newborn, and this year she is fully embracing her girly girl self, and I love it! Here is my River’s wish list:
want // River is is obsessed with strollers and carts and anything she can push babies in. This wooden doll pram fits that category, and is the kind of item that can become an heirloom piece.
need // As baby girl’s toy collection grows, she is starting to need a stylish piece to contain and coral all her lovely things. I love the creative way the lid comes off this modern toy box.
wear // My daughter just grew out of her first pair of Freshly Picked moccasins, so it’s time for her next pair. The price might seem higher than your usual budget, but these are built to last and might become your baby’s main shoe. She is partial to the brown suede in a size 4, just in case you’re wondering…
read // I’m obsessed with these wooden storybooks. Plain and simple. And no little fragile pages for my baby to demolish. Love!
Are you shopping for a baby girl this season? I’d love to hear your favorites too!
