Inspired Finds: Double Bunnies.

In honor of a week devoted to all things love, we’ve gathered a few choice items inspired by a snuggly bundle of fur better known in our shop as Double Bunnies. Among our picks: soft gray slippers made of mohair; caramels named for the blink of a rabbit’s eye; a porcelain nightlight; and a paper puppet caught mid-stride. We’re tickled pink.

Inspired Finds: Reindeer.

Reindeer are remarkable creatures: strong, stately, and prone – we hear, anyway – to flight. This season, we propose a toast (and a post) in their honor, with eight reindeer-inspired finds for making spirits bright.

Gift Guide. For Pets, of course!

Pets are members of the family, too, and this year, we thought we’d help animal lovers everywhere treat their furry, four-legged friends for the holidays. With Christmas just over a week away, we know we’re cutting it close (we’ve been busy making sure our holiday orders get out on time!), but, mercifully, pets won’t know the difference – and we’re confident they’ll love us just the same.

Below, choice gifts for dogs and cats – and, for good measure, one for the birds, as well. The Animal Print Shop by Sharon Montrose

1. Antler chew toy, $16. Made in Finland from naturally-shed reindeer antlers. 

2. Canvas bowl, $36. This collapsible water bowl comes with a brass clip so it fastens easily to leashes.

Bear may be preparing for a long winter’s sleep, it’s true. But us? We’re stocking up for a season full of sweet surprises. Among our most coveted items: a dress printed with playful polar bears; fluffy bedroom slippers (complete with claws!); and artisanal sandwich cookies made with peanut butter, oats, raw sugar, and, of course, honey. Come and get us, winter.

For pint-sized animal lovers hoping to pay homage to their four-legged friends: a felt-and-fabric-paint mask and tail; a  wool monkey hat and plush banana; snow-white leggings and a fluffy, puffy cottontail. Designed to work with items your kids may already own (a basic white tee or brown leggings, for example), these costumes are perfect in a pinch for Halloween – or as dress-up chest staples all year round.
