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):

Finding “the right” photo frame or album can be frustrating – especially if your photo is a gift.

Enter: Rag & Bone Bindery in Pawtucket, Rhode Island, purveyor of beautiful handmade photo books and other bindings.

The accordion photo book retails on the web site for $26.00 (+$5 shipping, but free gift wrap…), accommodates 10 photos, and is available in about two dozen cover options, as are all Rag & Bone books.

That’s a great value vs. individual frames, and makes a delightful gift for so many occasions.  We like the Red Rose binding (pictured) for Valentine’s Day, or any day.
