Your kiddos’ clothing may be small, but they sure do have a lot of it! Give your own coat hanger a break and give your wee one a place to hang their own coats and scarves, like this sweet, wooden animal coat hanger for kids. Available at Theo for (£24.95), this beautiful natural coat rack with fox, rabbit and cat profiles makes a great gift idea too! And did we hear anyone say weekend DIY project?

Baby’s safety is our number one priority as moms—but we’re not big fans of how baby gates look in the home. They’re ugly. We actually designated ours as “the baby jail.” But the Munchkin Numi is NOT one of those baby gates. It has dark wood, an aluminum frame, and it’s easy to install!

A cuddly, hooded car seat blanket DIY! This project requires some sewing skills, though the instructions provided by Kelly of The Complete Guide to Imperfect Homemaking are easy enough for a novice to follow as well. Who’s up for the challenge?
