Sleep sacks and sleeping bags are sending traditional swaddles packing, and for good reason.  While nothing says snug like a tightly-executed baby burrito, those mummy wraps can be quick to unravel once baby starts rolling about.

Thanks to some very bright folks at HALO (“The Original Sleep Sack”), parents can stop losing sleep over loose sheets, instead zipping their little ones into clever baby sleeping bags that provide the warmth and ritual of a swaddle without sacrificing too much snugness.   Other companies are getting in on the idea now, and there are even folks making them in custom fabrics on Etsy.

Sleep sacks, bags, whatever you want to call them, are fantastic gifts for baby’s first year and just beyond.  Most retail between $20-$50 depending on fabric and brand.  Handmade items often fetch a bit more.  Search “baby sleep sack” on Amazon for a good round-up.

Here are a few favorites (click pics for links):

The countdown to Valentine’s Day has begun! And while the most desirable traditional gifts of love are usually either edible, handmade, or made of diamonds, we’ll settle for two out of three. (My kid eats crayons – doesn’t yours?)

These recycled heart-shaped crayons we found on Etsy are a cool treat for either a single gift, or parceled out with valentines in place of candy. You get 6 for $4, plus $2/$1 shipping – so get a whole bag for the best deal.
