Giggle: Stuff You Need and Stuff You’ll Want

Baby and kid shop Giggle is full of goods that range from ultra-practical to just super cute and drool-worthy. New arrivals in the former category include the "I wish they had that when I had a newborn" product, the DockATot ($165-$185), which serves as a safe spot to park the babe for a change, tummytime and more, and facilitates safe co-sleeping. In the latter, the most beautiful humidifier we've ever seen, the Objecto W4 Hybrid Humidifier (169.99), which will fit in nicely with your MCM teak aesthetic. It features an anti-bacterial water tank, quiet operation, an aromatherapy function and a matching stylish remote. (Psst: it's acrylic!)
