Search our archives and past gift guides for Chronicle Books, and it's pretty obvious we've been big fans of many of their printed products,.
Can't find an "K is for Kunegunda" art print for your little one's nursery? We've got just the thing.
Ah, the poor humble placemat. Sure, placemats serve a noble purpose: to keep spills and mess (somewhat) contained. But have you ever fallen in love with a placemat?
We all know that personalized items make a baby's or kid's gift ten times more special. While many of the big catalog stores offer custom embroidery, they'll usually only personalize their own brand's items--which is kind of limiting. So I'm so happy to find a shop that features some of our own favorite small brands, and allows you to personalize their items with a name.
I'm so thrilled that one of our favorite Etsy artisans has started making personalized baby name gifts that are easy on the eyes and your wallet.
Scrapbooks as gifts are super sweet, even if they are a ton of work. It's the kind of present that really makes the receiver feel special. That is why I'm really interested in a new company that's putting a cool spin on a familiar concept.
Looking for a gift this holiday season that won't take up any more space in the playroom? How about some practical and functional items for your little ones to call all their own?
My kids love Sesame Street. Hey, I love Sesame Street. So we have a lot of Sesame Street decorations around our house--if by decorations we mean random books on the floor and half-dressed Muppet dolls.
We've long been fans of the beautiful handmade wooden baby toys from family-run Little Sapling, and now there's one more item that can make you the most awesome gift-giver ever.
I'm one of those diehards (or gluttons for punishment) who still orders hard copies of digital photos so that I can shove them into a photo album. I've used Snapfish for years for these prints, including last month's order of 1,370 prints. (No, that's not a typo).
I'm pretty sure there's nothing most kids love more than seeing their name or likeness in anything, hence the slew of personalized books that cram my daughter's bookshelves.
Ever since my daughter was pegged as The Budding Artist, she gets about 14 boxes of crayons at every gift-giving holiday. I only wish that one of my generous friends would stumble across the custom name crayons from Story Blox.
Self-obsessed much? Despite my best efforts, my daughter is. Thanks to our video camera, she's been watching movies of herself for years. And oh, they are her favorites.
If there's something I've noticed about tweens, other than their total obsession with Hannah What's-Her-Name, is that they really like stuff with their name on it.
Thanks to my husband the pilot, I'm definitely into planes as children's room decor; but that doesn't mean I'll just grab any old picture of an aircraft and slap it up on my son's wall.
While I'm grateful for all the lightweight summer blankets I've received for my new baby, I still wanted something warm and cuddly for those overly frigid stores, restaurants, and my grandmother's condo in Florida, a.k.a. The Air Conditioning Capital of the World.
