Shopping for an Eco-Mama

From eye-catching bassinets to organic receiving blankets, the number of luxury baby products and eco mama-to-be gifts continue to expand as more companies embrace an environmentally conscious approach towards providing sustainable goods. For example, browse the eco-friendly items at The Land of Nod and you're sure to fall in love with brands, like Stokke, Pixel Organics, Cariboo, Svan, Ecotots, and Ergaorganics. A sample of eco-friendly gifts for expecting mothers include: Stokke Sleepi System 1 Crib Currently on sale for $799.00, the Stokke Sleepi System 1 Crib (above) is originally priced at $999.00, but the extra greenbacks are certainly worth it for a nursery outfitted with this strikingly clean design. Easily converting from a bassinet to a crib, parents will surely embrace this time saving unit. With beechwood construction, the eco-friendly Stokke Sleepi System 1 Crib also offers four adjustable mattress heights, lockable wheels, and portability – perfect for any room of the home. Choose from Stained Espresso or painted White finishes, offered only at The Land of Nod. Cariboo Earth Folding Bassinet It's only natural that a parent wants their child to sleep in safe and secure surroundings. Made by Scandinavian Child, this eco-friendly bassinet accommodates newborns up to 22 pounds. Handcrafted from sustainable Radiata pine, the stained finish is water-based and biodegradable. This gift also comes with an unbleached, all natural cotton bassinet bag, fitted sheet, and eco-dyed veil. The New Zealand wool mattress supplies natural fiber comfort and is also covered in unbleached cotton. Price: $449.95 Svan High Chair When it's time to entice a little one with strained peas and turkey noodle surprise, serve meals in style with this eco-friendly high chair, crafted from birch and made by Scandinavian Child. Dealing with a fussy eater? The Svan High Chair is easy to clean, offering a wipe-down wood finish and a dishwasher safe plastic tray cover that easily snaps off. Other features of the high chair include:
  • Three-point safety harness system
  • Simply twist a knob to expand safety guard
  • Seat adjusts vertically and horizontally
  • Adjustable footrest
The Land of Nod offers your choice of Cherry, Espresso, Mahogany or Natural stain. If you'd like to go for the gusto, select a coordinating cushion to accompany your gift: Blue, Brown or Green. Price: $259.95 UPPAbaby Vista Stroller This 2009 UPPAbaby Vista Stroller model retails at $669.99 and has been dubbed the ' SUV of the stroller world.' With a rugged design, the Vista Stroller provides an attractive, lightweight (thanks to the same aluminum alloy used in aircrafts) , and highly functional gift to the eco-mama ready to shed a little baby weight tackling the local park or neighborhood streets in style. UPPAbaby also added an eco-friendly bassinet lined with a blend of organic cotton and soybean fiber to sweeten the deal. What more can you ask for? Other features to consider include telescoping one-touch handle height adjustment, easy folding for storage, cell phone pocket, and removable, machine washable fabric. One last tempting detail…the included weather shield, mesh sunshade, bug cover and pop-out SPF 50 canopy extension that delivers 30% more sun coverage. This product is for newborns to children weighing 50 pounds. Available colors include: Black (Jake), Blue (Myles), Green (Carlin), Red (Denny) or Silver (Mica). Ecotots' Big Kahuna Bookcase What better place to store all of the bouncy balls, stuffed animals, and pop-up books in a child's room than with a 100% formaldehyde-free, FSC Certified birch plywood bookcase? Offering an extra deep and wide bottom shelf that makes gathering precious possessions easy for little hands, the Ecotots' Big Kahuna Bookcase assembles within minutes without the need for cumbersome tools. The bookcase is decorated with a non-toxic, water-based stain (Cocoa or White finish) and delivered in less than one week. Price: $335.00 Little Twig Baby Bath Gift Set If you're looking for a thoughtful gift for an upcoming baby shower, the Little Twig's baby basics gift pack is built to please the mother who plans to bath her child in eco-friendly luxury.
