Minky baby security blanket
While the weather in Southern California has been unseasonably cold these past few weeks, the girls here at the Hive are still gearing up for a sunny Spring season. In fact, we think the perfect way to welcome the warmer weather is to plan a picnic with all our gal pals. And, we happen to have discovered a fantastic blanket for the occasion!Scottish designer Donna Wilson is well known in the U.K. for her knitted home accessories, and she's just added a lovely outdoors piece to the collection. The Nos Da Picnic Blanket (named for a Welsh phrase meaning €œgood night€�) is woven in the traditional English double-cloth method. Offered in a vibrant Kelly green and ivory pattern, the blanket has a waterproof nylon backing to insulate you from cool or damp surfaces. That means no grass stains on those brand new flare jeans you just purchased!Where to Buy - The Future PerfectPrice - $288Who - Melimeli was the first to add the Nos Da Picnic Blanket to the Hive.

One person that everyone loves showering and spoiling with gifts is the baby. We love gifting things to babies because, well, they're just so darn cute! And everything made for them is also just so darn cute! Honestly, I believe that if we could get away with it, many of us would still be wearing soft fleece pjs with footies attached, or eating dinner off personalized plates and silverware with tiny animals marching across. Alas, we grew up as did our tastes, and although we can't use many of the super soft, extra-cuddly or painfully cute clothes and accessories that infants get to, we now have the means to buy them and provide them to the babies in our life. Whether it's your baby's first holiday, a new niece or nephew that you're welcoming, or a close friend's mini-me, there's a vast variety of brightly colored toys, plush pastel blankies, itty-bitty garments and beautifully shining accessories that are admittedly a little superflous but undeniably lust-worthy and still very practical. Click on the slideshow for some favorite gift ideas to show the littlest one how much you love them.
