Etsy has officially convinced me, that handmade truly is the best. Where else would you be able to purchase cozy leg warmers like this?
Candace from Knotty Tots makes these incredibly warm and oh so soft leg warmers for babies and kids in a wide range of amazing colors. These accessories have become somewhat of a necessity for my daughter as she is always slightly chilly after her dance class. Since we’ve been using the leg warmers, she hasn’t been cold once!
Knotty Tots’ leg warmers come with two single or double layer flower clips that can be used as hair clips or to accessorize your warmers. We’ve also used these clips with my daughter’s Marili Jean Hat with success!
Price: 1 pair for $22 or 2 for $30 from Knotty Tots on Etsy.

Now that I have experienced a Britax car seat firsthand, I understand why they get top consumer reviews; the Britax Boulevard 65 CS is exquisite!
My husband was first in line to receive the box at the front door, and he was definitely surprised at how big it was and how much it weighed – which to be honest, I think is rather a good thing. Would you really want your child sitting in a light-weight flimsy car seat, relying on it to protect them from a high speed collision on the highway? A big contributor to the weight factor is the steel bars running along both sides of the car seat. They are in place to help make a stronger connection between the car seat and the vehicle and help reduce that forward momentum of the child seat in the event of a crash.
While we’re on the topic of safety, the Boulevard 65 CS, as noted on their website, offers 360 degree protection and revolutionary head safety technology. They perform twice as many tests as the highway traffic safety administration (US) requires, and have made it their goal to provide the ultimate in safety features. Another feature to support this safety claim is the Safe Cell technology located in the base of the seat. This helps to lower the center of gravity of your child during a collision, decreasing the forward momentum of the seat.
Yesterday, FAO Schwarz® announced the launch of The Baby Collection, an exclusive line of beautifully crafted gift-able merchandise ranging from theme-inspired nursery décor and matching bedding sets to classic keepsakes, luxury apparel for newborns to 12-months and cutting-edge gadgets to whip up fresh food for babies. The Silver-Plated Gifts are gorgeous and make a fabulous memento for parents looking to commemorate their new bundle of joy!
Moms and Dads are treated to a collection of diaper bags equipped with silver hardware accents, canvas fabrics and messenger and over-the-shouler designs. If you are the fly-by-your-seat kind of parent (aren’t we all), you’ll love the new matching travel kit sets that include a bottle bag, pacifier and wipe case and small and large zip pouches.
Because everything is packaged pristinely, no additional wrapping is required for most of these items, making The Baby Collection ideal for gifting this holiday season. Prices for the collection will range from $9.99 to $249.99.
