When I was hanging out in the East Village with my good friend we happened onto the ultimate “Auntie” shop, Pink Olive. We picked up loads of goodies there (I added another Jelly Cat to Zilla’s collection) thanks to the expert staff. I am always curious to know what the owner’s picks are and we’re lucky to have Grace Kang give us some of her very favorites today. The best part is that you don’t have to be in New York to pay a visit…you can take a peek at her online shop right here. Thank you Grace for sharing your shop and faves with us!

First time mom
for the first time mom, it’s all about capturing those “special’ moments during the 3 trimesters. this belly book is a whimsical way of creating a keepsake for the first time mom and baby. also, this “you grow girl” card is perfect to give with this book.
Favorite pairings for a 50$ under gift
i am all about giving the gift of art that tickles the whimsy in all of us. when you think about it, it’s the mom who will be spending majority of her time in the nursery. so we need to create an environment that is inspiring to her as well as the baby. i absolutely love the art prints from brooklyn artist, kristiana parn. she brings out the kid in all of us.
Favorite item of the “Aunties”
becoming an auntie for the first time is a right of passage and a beautiful journey. every auntie needs to own this new book “savvy auntie – the ultimate guide for cool aunts, great aunts, godmothers and all women who love kids.”
