One of the joys of the holidays is seeing little children around the Christmas tree opening up their gifts, and anyone with kids in their direct or extended family has experienced this fuzzy feeling. That being said, shopping for children can sometimes be hard, especially for those with little experience with kids. More often than not, gifts become redundant, like pink dresses for girls and blue pant suits for boys. For that reason, I compiled a list of gift ideas for babies and small children that I find functional and helpful for the winter season.
A few days ago I walked past a few shops at a department store and did a double take. What seemingly innocent children’s t shirts were in fact graphic tees with skulls on them. They came in such small sizes, newborn or 3 months probably up to kid’s sizes.
Where do I begin my rant?
We now idolize symbols of death? We now make fashion out of them? Who on earth came up with this idea?
Hey, I know, lets print a skull and make an innocent baby wear it.
Why are we robbing our children of their innocence? Are rainbows, hearts, flowers, butterflies, animals, cartoon characters and other prints passee? Is this what we have come to?
With Easter season approaching, dressing up our children becomes THE priority. I gathered a few pieces from the new spring collection for baby girls to give you some ideas. The colors range from classic beige and pale pink to neon orange to suit each baby’s character. Who said children can’t stand out as individuals?
