Bob's Red Mill Vegi Soup Mix
it’s not that I’m discovering anything new here, but Bob’s Red Mill Vegi Soup Mix is hands down my new fav. It’s all natural, healthy and is chock full of green and yellow split peas, barley, lentils and little bits of pasta. It does take about an hour to cook, but all you have to do is mix with water (also add any spices you may prefer) and voila you’ve got a really hearty meal. For those soup lovers out there, it’s a must try.

Kitty Egg Beeswax Candles
100% natural beeswax which is collected in Portland, Oregon, these Kitty Egg Candles are such a treat. They’re all natural, air purifying and give off a slight scent of honey. And once again we’re bringing them to you from the same folks who made the Bowling Kitty Wood Toy Set and Kitty Egg Crayons. These might just be too sweet to pass up.

Felted Wool Mobile
and eco-friendly felted wool mobile. These are all one of a kind, and would make a really thoughtful gift for a new mom who doesn’t want to fill her home with the standard baby gear (that was me!). You can also celebrate the month your baby was born with a mobile from part of the birth month series. Sqrl & Bee Studio makes pretty things that would bring a welcome sense of tranquility to any nursery.

Sprout Monkey Storage Bin, $40
called Sprout recently opened in my neighborhood. It’s the first in New York, but they’re online and on Union Street in San Francisco. The store is full of great gifts, toys and clothing; all of which are well made from all natural and organic materials. I don’t even have a kid and it’s hard to walk out empty handed. In addition to carrying a ton of recognizable brands, they have their own line of goods that is certainly worth knowing about. I’m in love with this monkey storage bin. It’s made from organic cotton canvas and can be collapsed for easy storage when not in use. If you’re not into the monkey, they’ve got other animals like an owl, fox, hippo, and raccoon. Perfect for anything from toys to laundry and so darn happy. One word, adorable.
