I wish I would have known about Little Hip Squeaks when I was pregnant with Isobel because I would have favorited the hell out of every item in their shop. Those custom monogrammed blankets! Those adorable knotted beanies! The patterns and colors are fresh and modern and you can have your pick of both. I want one of their family sized blankets. Bad.
- Mod Chevron Baby Blanket, your choice of color
- Personalized or Monogrammed Organic Baby Blanket
- Kids’ Blanket, Modern Organic Bedding
- Five Knotted Baby Beanie Caps
If I won the lottery probably the first thing I’d go out and do would be to purchase another pair of glasses or two. Would I ever consider purchasing glasses online? The answer is a resounding yes. All you need is to find out your pupillary distance. Though really, you don’t even have to worry about that with glasses.com because their shipping is free and so are returns up to 30 days of purchase. Essentially what this means is that you get a free in-home try on for as many pairs as you like. My three favorite frames for me are below as well as one I’d love to get for Anthony. 1960s era-inspired frames so my husband looks like he works for NASA? Yes, please.

- Maestro, by Smith Optics
- Kent, by Affliction

Olie Sylvester of Oompaul.com is supporting Little Big not once but twice with ads for two of his artistic endeavors. He carves one of a kind handmade pipes as well as hosts a podcast about all things pipe related. His pipes aren’t just functional, they are gorgeous and unique works of art. And then we have the Monstrosity series, “the pipes that ugly could not contain.” (I giggled all the way through the testimonials).

The brainchild of Oompaul’s Olie Sylvester, Fine Art for the Frugal aims to put owning works of fine art within everyone’s reach. A graduate of Savannah College of Art and Design, he is the founder of Red Coral Creative. A list of Olie’s shows and awards can be found here. He practices a style of art known as Automatism , which was used by many of the early Surrealists. Automatistst produce art by allowing raw form to manifest itself without restraint or preconception. To me they look like bursts of color and emotion reflective of an inner state.
