Holiday Gift Guide: For the Nursery

Justine Hand December 04, 2012

Perhaps the most fun I ever had in designing a room was when I styled my children’s nurseries. It was a time before plastic princesses and action figures began to muddy the waters, when I could indulge in my own sense of playfulness and whimsy.

Back then, I didn’t have nearly the variety of rare and international goods as are available today. If I had it all to do over again, here is what I would choose.

N.B.: To make sure we’ve got everyone on your list covered, see all of our gift guides to date in our House Gifts section.

Above: Available with two or three gulls, this graceful Seagull Mobile is hand stitched by Masami Akatsuka of Cocon; €84 and €122.

Above: A modern twist on the classic pull toy, Enzo the Dog by Studio delle Alpi, comes in a variety contemporary patterns and hues; €55.

Above: Discovered via our friend Deborah at Kickcan and Conkers, the German Company Zenzi Design fashions a series of hinged Wooden Animals, including lion, badger, fox, and elephant; €38.

Above: From Barcelona, La Casa De Coto crochets Cotton Poufs in a variety of colors, including these serene stars; $64 to $120.

Above: Handmade by Furze Chan, these lovable peanut dolls make for some truly huggable companions; $62.

Above: Made from 100 percent cotton, Auggie’s Baby Quilts get softer with each wash; $78.
