  1. A Mamapicks Favourite: JIAE Boutique

    My all-time best go-to for gifts for little girls is JIAE Boutique (pronounced Jiya), where everything is personalized with bling.  Little girls are always thrilled to see their name on something…and the more sparkle, the better.  I love the hairbands, tutu skirts, tanks and other accessories.  I also love making my order online/by phone and picking up my gift in Thornhill.  So easy!  Check out the website for gift options for the whole family (boys too…).

    PeachyBuy is now offering a special  coupon for JIAE  goodies.  You have until the end of the day to take advantage of that.  Mamapicks is also excited to have one personalized hairband with gorgeous flower to  GIVE AWAY!  All you have to do is go to JIAE’s Facebook page and click Like…and drop me a note with the name you would like on your hairband.  The 5th person to write in will be the lucky winner!

  4. Heartsy for Etsy

    Worlds collided in a really good way yesterday when I heard that my all time favourite Etsy (a website for all things hand-made) and my recent infatuation with Grouponish sites came together into something called Heartsy.  Heartsy is a Groupon-like site for Etsy.  So, if you like Etsy, you might want to subscribe to Heartsy.  Gotsy?

    P.s. above is this beautiful mom’s nest which makes for a personal and symbolic gift for Mother’s Day.  Great for your mom or mother-in-law if you order all of the grandkids’ names.

  12. Teacher Gift Ideas

    In December, I surveyed teachers about their favourite gifts.  The winners were gift certificates to malls and spas as well as personalized stationary.  Losers were soaps, candles and chocolates…

    These gorgeous alphabet prints by Penny People Designs are the type of find that I want to share and keep to myself all at the same time.  My son has one in his room and I can’t help but admire it every time I see it.  I love the concept, the colours and of course…I am 100% into anything personalized (in case you haven’t noticed). The prints come in two sizes and fit into an IKEA  Ribba frame which makes framing so simple.
