Cool Mom Picks Holiday Gift Guide

‘Tis the season for the proliferation of online gift guides, and I’ve found some pretty cool ones out there. But my absolute favorite – and I might be a little biased here – is the Cool Mom Picks Holiday Gift Guide.

Okay, so I’ve been part of Team Cool Mom Picks since mid-2006. I’m definitely biased.

The CMP Holiday Gift Guide includes over 100 unique and cool ideas for literally everyone on your list – from “The Future Rock Star” to “The Effortless Eco-Fashionista”, and from “The Nanny You Don’t Want Anyone to Steal” to a whole section of kids’ gifts under $12. Plus, we’ve ensured this year’s guide is especially recession-friendly – without sacrificing our signature CMP style.

Much as I love all of the picks (and I had no role in picking them – I’m the ad gal for CMP), there are several that I need to call out for being extra-spectacular.

Personalized coloring books from Frecklebox: An awesome idea for your gaggle of young nieces and nephews. Personalization keeps the kids from fussing over whose coloring book is whose.

Sprig_Eco_LoaderSprig Toys: These vehicles, figures, and playsets are made from a composite of recycled wood and reclaimed plastic. No paint, no batteries, and a yummy woodsy scent. Plus they’re made here in Colorado – Sprig Toys is located in Fort Collins.

Angora gloves: from Nepal: Fair trade handmade gloves made from the wool of locally farmed Angora rabbits. Net proceeds benefit Himalayan medical and educational projects. Elegant gift giving and feel-good philanthropy, both for only $12.
