I really like the products giggle offers and the philosophy behind them:

giggle isn't just a baby store: it's a new parent store.

We do the homework so you don't have to, offering only the best, smartest, and most innovative products out there.

At giggle, part of our job is making your job easier — not by offering every baby product available, but by offering only the best. We carry all your must-have baby items, pre-sorted to include only the most healthy, stylish and innovative products available — from fun, bright bedding and furniture, to gear, toys, baby care, cleaning products, and more.

I love that they have a lot of organic and unique items from smaller businesses that really focus on doing things well.

Here are some of those best-of-the-best products:

They're perfect for holiday gift giving, baby showers, or your own sweet family!

Long-Sleeved Lap-Shoulder Tee in Organic Cotton: Under a jumper or paired with pants, these cool little lap-shoulder tees are a great baby staple. They're also wonderfully soft and healthy, made from 100% organic cotton with no pesticides or chemicals used during the entire production process. 

In my experience, separates are sooo much easier than one-piece outfits for young babies, particularly if you're using cloth diapers or doing elimination communication. And lap tees are wonderful, because they're easy to get over those huge but fragile newborn heads. Win-win! Something like this, with some cute organic pants, would make a wonderful baby shower gift.

Here's a short-sleeved version with a kimono-type opening, so easy for dressing those floppy, chubby little newborns.

Felt Photo Pocket: Have those baby pictures ready to pass around at a moment's notice. This felt photo pouch holds 24 photos for a versatile way to share — especially if keeping a brag book current seems like too much work. And with its simple and sweet applique, it's also a great way to present a set of prints to a loved one!

The Family Book: What kind of family do you have? Big, or small? Messy, or neat? Whatever your family is like, you're not alone! This colorful book by Todd Parr shows all different kinds of families, including families with step-parents, single parents, and same-sex partners. But no matter how different they are, there are some things all families can agree on, and those are the things that really matter.

Babyprints Keepsake: Babies grow up fast, but this wonderful keepsake can serve as a permanent reminder of how tiny they once were. Using baby's hand or foot print, this kit will make a lasting impression! Why it's a giggle pick: This is such a sweet idea, we couldn't resist, and the kit has everything you need to pull it off!

giggle Better Basics Starter Layette Kit: Finding the perfect gift has never been easier! Chock-full of the things every new parent needs, this set includes two long-sleeve baby bodysuits, two hats, a pair of mitts and booties, and a bunny blanket friend, all in an adorable (and durable!) canvas tote. Why it's a giggle pick: We designed this line of organic baby essentials to be the perfect combination of quality and value!

Piddle Pad: The Piddle Pad makes every seat accident-proof. Much easier than washing the whole car seat or stroller, this soft, absorbent pad shields seats with a vinyl layer and even wicks moisture away from baby. The contoured design easily and discreetly fits every child's seat from newborns to toddlers. Accidents will happen, but with the Piddle Pad, cleaning them up is a whole lot easier. Great for ECing babies and potty-learning toddlers.

Taga Stroller Bike: Enjoy the journey with this combination bike and stroller. You and your child can ride to your destination together, then a 20-second conversion switches the bike to stroller mode so you can continue on foot. What a fun way to share together time! Why it's a giggle pick: Taga is a safe, ecological, and innovative way for you and your child to keep moving. Who it's perfect for: The outdoor enthusiast who wants to add biking into their fitness routine, or the car-free parent who wants an innovative way to get around. I have never seen the like, but I know we love our front-mounted bike seat. This is like a two-in-one deal!

Benz Bench: This kid-sized bench is an excellent way to provide extra seating and storage without the waste! Constructed out of sturdy cardboard (it holds up to 300 lbs!) and made from recycled materials, it's recyclable itself, not to mention biodegradable. It's easy to assemble and disassemble, making it an easy fit into anyone's life.

Let me repeat: It's made out of cardboard! And it supports 300 pounds!

My Green Dollhouse: A giggle exclusive! This stylish habitat is a fun and modern update to the classic dollhouse. And not just because it has a fresh, clean appearance in a contemporary brown and pink color palette — it's also eco-friendly! Constructed out of cardboard made from recycled materials, it's recyclable itself, not to mention biodegradable. Easy to assemble and disassemble, with a carrying case for portable fun, this dollhouse is an easy fit into anyone's life.

Ultimate Car Seat Travel Bag: Wouldn't this be a lifesaver at the airport? Juggling luggage, a toddler, and a car seat when you travel? Protect the seat that protects your child. When you're packing up the car seat to take on an airplane or train, this carrier will protect your car or booster seat's safety features (not to mention the upholstery!) from the perils of travel. Plus, padded backpack-style straps make carrying it along easier than you would have ever dreamed. Finally — one less thing for your busy parent hands to hold in the airport! The FAA recommends that children under 40 pounds sit in a car seat while flying, so don't skip the car seat, but do skip the extra effort!

Early Rider Lite Bike: Apparently, the hard part in learning to ride isn't the pedaling — it's the balance. Take away the distraction of pedals and gears and brakes, and you give children the chance to learn balance safely and at their own pace. This balance bike is a great choice for your kids' first set of wheels! You can start kids off early on this lightweight, pedal-free bike — as young as 20 months. And the adjustable seat setting lets you continue to use it all the way through age 4! This is a great value for such a high quality item, and it encourages the development of balance, strength and motor skills even in young children. I bet this could help even Mikko!

giggle Reusable Gift Bag: And to put it all in? Got a big surprise for the parents or parents-to-be? No need to struggle with super-sized wrapping paper: Just pop your present into this extra-large gift bag and you're ready to go. It's even reusable, making it the gift bag that keeps on giving! This bag measures 20" x 20" x 46", which fits bigger gear items such as most car seats and high chairs.
