green gift guide: my little green shop {$50 gift certificate}

Nearly everything non-toxic that you would want for your family is in stock at My Little Green Shop. This eco-friendly online boutique based in Vancouver, British Columbia, will carry you from the newborn stage then into infant, toddler and children’s products. They’ve even got your pet covered with natural remedies! They carry a huge selection of fabulously green brands that natural mommies always try to get their hands on: Oeuf, Positively Organic, Fig Kids, Bossy Baby, Blabla, Fleurville, MiYim, Little Twig and that’s only a tiny fraction of what you’ll find!

The parents behind the show , Lili and Jim have been living green for over a decade, but like many of us moms and dads, the shift to really be aware, came with the birth of their first child. They think of their own little one and all other babies when they make purchases for My Little Green Shop. And since they’re Canadian, the choose Canadian made products when they can and it is imperative them to only carry items that are safe and non-toxic.

Since the owners are based in Vancouver, it makes sense to have a complete collection of rainwear – but it’s rare that you see this in other online stores and even in-store it’s difficult to find stylish rainwear for kids. And if you’re on the hunt for anything PVC-free, good luck.  So as you can imagine, I was really excited to see this:

For review, Aidan received a very adorable Hatley Sailing Dogs Raincoat. This raincoat features a super soft 100% terry cotton lining  in red that contrasts really nicely with the powder blue shell. It has front snap closures and 2 generously sized pockets, perfect for my little explorer. The texture of the shell is soft, smooth {check out the second pic below to get an idea of the softness} and waterproof yet 100% PVC-free!

Aidan thinks the dogs in boats design on the coat is hilarious {gotta love the toddler sense of humor!!}, and I like that there are no yellow ducks to be seen and it doesn’t smell like a chunk of rubber. He’s in size 4T right now but we’re into freezing cold weather so I went with size 5T that will fit perfectly when spring arrives. It’s pretty roomy right now, I can roll the sleeves up twice and it hits mid-thigh. Right now this coat is $38.95 and available in size 2 and 4 for this design.

Switch it up – instead of giving a piece of winter gear, give something that parents will appreciate when the gifts aren’t rolling in left and right. in the spring. Parents can bring out this colorful coat when the snow starts to melt {the terry liner plus a sweater is perfect for that in-between weather where a winter coat is too heavy!} and have a stylish, non-toxic, waterproof piece of rainwear for their little one to get excited about.

  1. So many options… maybe the momo sling or the Lumi cocoa crib sheet, Kleen Kanteen sippy or one of the fig hoodies.
