The Nice List - Are You On It This Year?

Posted by Marisa Taschke on

Oh, Instagram brands. You make us feel a little naughty with all your perfectly styled shots and uber cool pieces available for delivery with just a few scrolls and a couple of clicks.

Well, prepare to add a whole lot more to your Christmas wish-list; I thought I’d share a few of my recent buys (shhh, don’t tell my husband).  

In my defence, most of these gorgeous pieces were under $50 and will make great gifts for expecting mamas, new bubbas and, of course, your little one’s first Christmas.

Oh, and another thing to keep your mind off your dwindling PayPal balance: many of these small businesses are locally owned and operated by mamas, just like ours, so you can rest in the knowledge that you are supporting small, and helping spread a little love to the little guys this Christmas (which really means so much!).

The lucky recipient to most of my haul has been my best friends new addition, and my favourite tiny newborn, Ziggy.  I really couldn’t resist myself, when 0000 looks that damn cute, how can you not add it to the cart?!?!

My all time favourite colour and gender neutral, so works so well for both boys and girls.  The little Zig-man has been wrapped in this organic beauty nearly every day. It’s a little larger in size, and the softness and quality make it well worth the $32.95.
