Our first snow today has MP thinking of cozy knits for little ones. Plus, she’ll be visiting her baby nephew in New Jersey soon, and she wants to bring him something special from Maine.

MP is a big fan of Three Kittens Knitting in Limington. Shop owner Cathy Bernier knits lovely winter hats, but she also crochets adorable baby booties. MP loves that you can throw these in the wash, too.

We love the adorable wooden buttons on these boots.

Friends and family are having a lot of babies lately, which means MP needs to come up with a thoughtful gift or two. Thankfully, she needn’t look any further than Portland’s Lilleputt Studio. Designer Annika Schmidt makes beautiful textiles for little ones. MP loves her brightly colored bibs, infant smocks, and handmade pillows for the nursery.

A lightweight, oilcloth bib wipes clean and catches crumbs in the pocket.

All of Jessica’s onesies are made of super soft cotton

Jessica started Maine Girl Creations only two years ago. The Brunswick-resident fuses her smart design and sewing skills to make the most charming gifts.

While searching for birthday candles for Cute Potato #2, we discovered the children’s section at Folly 101 in the Old Port. If you’re searching for a special baby gift and don’t want to break the bank, than Folly 101 is the place for you.

You’ll find baby blankets, colorful Trumpette socks, cotton dresses in sizes 12-24 months, classic Maine books like Robert McCloskey’s Blueberries for Sal, picture frames and sweet hand-knits for the nursery.


And when you’re finished shopping, don’t miss the simple, letterpress cards by the register.
