Flat Out Frankie makes unique & inventive cardboard creations that allow children to construct, play, and imagine. You already know that we're all for anything that promotes imagination, but what we love most about Flat Out Frankie products is not only the simple beauty but also that each piece is basic enough for our four year old to look at the package instructions and figure out how to piece together the toy. It brings her a satisfaction and greater enjoyment than regular old toys do. It's exciting to watch the toy and her anticipation come to life and the toys are so well designed, we actually want them on display in our home. We love finding them in various nooks from room to room where they have been played with and kept. We also love the thought of gifting such a unique item and changing up the mundane gifting scene. Now if we can only get our little girl to agree, we'll use the unicorn head someday as a cool art piece in her room as well. Thanks Flat Out Frankie!

We were fellow vendors with Archie's Press at Renegade Craft Fair this year and spent a good amount of time admiring their work. The idea to break down a place into smaller & smaller units and execute it so artfully is genius in our book. Their prints are interesting and beautiful and we like to think, a great conversation starter. This is definitely one of those unique pieces you can be proud to hang in your home that will be sure to be admired by all who enter. Now if we can just get them to put Salt Lake City on their to make list! Thanks Archie's Press!

Is it odd to say that I've become a bit of a bib snob? When you spend most of your day taking a bib on & off and then cleaning up such bib and surrounding area, you get picky! Not to mention, it's nearly impossible to find plain old beautiful children's wear in your local grocery store/market. So cue Snap Bibs! The color range will have you at hello but then you experience the simplicity of clean up and you're sold. A quick wipe down and you're done. I love that I want to photograph my child in her highchair with her bib on and that the bib actually compliments the picture! You then move onto older children who don't want to/shouldn't wear a bib anymore and yet they've still got you covered, matching and equally durable place mats. And possibly the best part, you can roll up your placemat, you can roll up your bib, and take them on the go! But wait, the best part for my little girl is actually the sample pack of bibs that they offer, just in case you can't decide on a color, which you probably won't be able to. After we looked at all of the pretty colors, she quickly deemed them as her newest barbie doll accessory. Thanks Snap Bibs!

I can't quite get over how appropriate the name Hoodie Love is for this hoodie, it is SO lovable! You will think that you love it simply by looking at it - the well thought out design, the classic fabrics & patterns, the thumb hole, the large pockets, the perfect hood, BUT, you won't know love until you feel it. The softness of this fabric cannot be described, it is so luxurious you will wear it for 2 days straight like I did. The other thing to love about this hoodie is that it is complimenting for our varied body types. I love that it is roomy without being frumpy and it is long making sure to cover all that you want covered but still not too long on my short frame. The only thing that can compare is wrapping one of their equally wonderful scarves around your neck -- that I would never take off. Thanks Hoodie Love!

Several years ago we decided to learn more about natural products and how to simplify the numerous ingredients in various things we use. Some of those things were our facial products and home cleaning supplies. It's incredible the beautiful and delicious resources we have and how beneficial they can be to our health and use. However, we didn't want to make them on our own and that's why we love Handmade La Conner. The ingredients are in regular size print because they are so few and might I add, recognizable, the packaging is simple & beautiful, and the aroma of each product is absolutely delightful. We love that their products are soothing enough before bedtime and yet refreshing in the morning as well but most importantly great for use on mom, dad, and child.  Thanks Handmade La Conner!

Medium Control is joining us for a second year here in our gift guide because they are hands down our favorite t-shirt company! I've never been much of a t-shirt wearer but their t-shirts get worn weekly around here because the fit is spot on, the fabric is soft & durable and well the part that gets us every time, the design. Not too busy, not too crazy, just completely creative, unique, and perfect for design loving people like us. Also, they come in sizes for the whole family. Thanks Medium Control!
