2008 Best Gifts, Shower, Eco-Friendly


Shopping for an earth-mother-to-be? Consider feel-good products that actually feel good—like the ones at three-year-old Hatched, whose soft cotton diapers, soothing all-natural lotions, and cloudlike merino wool blankets prove “environmentally friendly” needn’t equal “rough-hewn.” For those with a more playful bent, there are Kinderkram wooden cars and trucks, finished with only natural oils and dyes, and vibrant Kruse baby toys made of organic cotton.
