Gifts for the littles: nesting favourites + A giveaway

Shopping for baby gear has come a long way since I was out to here with my first child 10 years ago. (Ten years ago?! How is that possible?!) I mean yes, you still have those crappy cookie-cutter megastores where you have as much chance of finding a staff member as you do laying an egg, but now you also have places like The Baby Cubby that go the extra mile to give shoppers exceptional selection and service. The Utah-based company reached out to me recently to introduce themselves in hopes that I might introduce them to you, and ‘tho I couldn’t visit the store because Utah, I was pleasantly surprised by their online shop and think you will be too. 

The store is a one-stop shop for all things baby with everything from feeding to play. My favourite top-quality name brands are all there — Oeuf, Petunia Pickle Bottom, Aden + Anais, Petit Pehr and so many more — and The Baby Cubby price matches with stores US-wide, including (That’s huge!) They’re also active on social media and offer support to parents through their cubby community blog

In store, they offer a stroller testing track, a rest and play area and drive-up ordering (brilliant!).

I love their on-trend nursery decor and rounded up a few of my favorites for nesting below.


Lorena Canals washable rug Machine washable and made of 100% cotton and non-toxic dyes. I love this diamond pattern, but they have several others that would look just as good in the nursery as they will in other parts of the house.

Fiona Walker England fauxidermy flamingo head I want one of these for me! And maybe the elephant, antelope, bunny and lion, plus all of the accessories to dress them up. They’re made of felt and handcrafted.

Aden + Anais silky soft bamboo swaddle blankets Super soft and breathable, and I am in lurve with the Indigo pattern!

Petit Pehr pom pom pint storage bin Grab a bunch in different sizes to stash toys and gear in style.
