Klean Kanteen Stainless Steel ...

Klean Kanteen Stainless Steel Sippy Cup

Food-grade stainless steel is the material of choice in the brewing, food and winemaking industries because it doesn't retain or impart flavors--which means your kid's apple juice tastes like apple juice.  Nothing more, nothing less.  Kids feel big drinking out of a water bottle just like mom and dad's, while you rest easy knowing it's hygienic and safe.  Designed for small hands so it's easy to hold, with a large mouth for easy cleaning and a spillproof cap.  Klean Kanteen bottles are designed to last a lifetime--even when the 'lifetime' is just getting started!--and come with a lifetime guarantee.

Smartwool Baby Booties

Shoes, bike wheels, Twix bars...good things come in twos.  Like this adorable package of two warm, cozy smartwool baby booties!  The colourful patterns are sure to be a hit, and since they're made of Merino you know they're natural, breathable, sustainable and completely itch and odor free.  Oh....and did we mention machine washable too?  Yep.  Mom and Dad will thank you for that feature!

Warm Winter Hats

Think of them as an insurance policy for winter fun!  These single- or double-layer hats are made from toasty warm, soft, itch-free merino wool with excellent temperature regulation to stop your kid's noggin from getting too hot.  They're cut for little heads, with a 'just right' sizing loose enough to be comfortable, while snug enough to stay in place while storming a snowfort or tumbling off a toboggan.

Warm Winter Outerwear

Boys' and Girls' winter gear should be waterproof, durable, and move with them so little bodies can get up to all sorts of snow-loving mischief and still stumble home warm and happy.  Give a gift they'll make use of all winter whether building snowforts, hitting the slopes, riding a toboggan or learning to skate!
