I have two sets of expecting Melbournian friends, and wanted to get a nice present for them. Something sweet, something uniquely Canadian (or Vancouver!), something not plastered in moose or maple leaves, and something not too outrageously expensive. Would you have any recommendations?
Yes, yes I do! These are a few of my conceived-in-Vancouver baby gifts, though I must say, I think a moose-shaped teether would be pretty cute too.
1. I first discovered Boske Kids clothes at Ella and Elliot and fell hard for them. They’re simple, beautiful pieces that feel a little vintage and a little European.
2. When I had my baby girl I got a care package filled with Vonbon blankets, bibs and hats. And, as I mentioned before, I love them.
3. The only thing I like about winter is the fact that I get to wear my Padraig Cottage slippers. My little one got a pair as a gift from my friend Sonja whose daughter also had a pair that she wore constantly. They’re not only cozy, but their suede soles provide ample traction for little ones learning to walk on hardwood floors.
4. Native Shoes’ kid’s gear is so cute. They’re from the west coast and now you can find them all over the place. I’m partial to the rain boots because they feel extra Vancouver-y.
Hope this helps, Sabrina! Happy gift-giving!
Great suggestions, Kelsey! Hope motherhood is treating you well.
