Best of Boston

2008 Best Gifts, Shower


Baby-lust-inducing clothing (Pixie Lily onesies, Trumpette ‘cowgirl boot’ socks) and accessories (Skip Hop diaper bags, Dwell crib sets) make this whimsical South End shop our favorite answer to big-box hegemony. Whether your limit is $20 or $200, staffers are happy to brainstorm presents, and wrapping is free. Even if your gift isn’t on Mom’s registry, she’ll probably wonder why she didn’t think of it herself.
