Say My Name

168_1Admit it, you loved monogrammed sweaters and bags back in grade school. Lately, you’ve been craving those old-school classics. But, halt your hankering because now it’s Little One’s turn to undergo the customization treatment. And, two companies with local roots can help make it happen. First stop: HipKidArt.com, which produces custom wall art for of-the-moment nurseries and playrooms. Order small or large canvases ($75-$125) with mod circles, animals or other designs–all in playful colors and proudly displaying the name of your choice. We are, of course, partial to the large canvas with the retro red tricycle on it. The bi-coastal company–one co-founder lives in the Seattle area; the other outside of NYC–is also planning to roll out personalized baby blankets next year.

168_2If you want a custom blankie for Baby right now, check out Chasing Fireflies’ site. The Seattle-based company specializes in “magical children’s products” such as costumes, but it also sells practical clothing and accessories. The pink-and-orange ‘I Spot My Name’ blanket ($85) can be personalized and it’s cute as a button. Soon Baby will be recognizing his or her name and basking in its wonder.
