But back to the kiddos! I obviously don’t have kids of my own, but I always think it’s fun to shop for nephews, nieces, cousins, my besties’ babies, etc. I know they don’t always appreciate the gift the way adults do, but it’s still so fun to pick something out that they’ll either have fun playing with/reading or that their parents will make them wear and pose for photos in 😂 😍
I’m going to make this post really short and sweet, but I do want to call out 3 stores really quickly! First, if you click on the books in the collage, it will take you to Amazon – but if you are reading this with enough time for standard shipping, I recommend ordering them from Semicolon, which is Chicago’s only Black female owned bookstore!
Also, Alice & Wonder has the cutest Chicago gear for toddlers and kids! If you’re local and short on time, you can also order online and pick up in store. SO easy! And lastly, Monica & Andy is another Chicago brand to support – and their organic blankets and clothes are beyond soft. You can’t go wrong with anything on their site!
