New York Magazine asked us what some of our FAVORITE new finds are for Spring and we immediately said, EARTH BLOCKS!!! These cool, lego-like blocks are made from all natural, organic materials- such as Tree Bark (as in the example above). Made from a composite of sawdust, bark, coffee bean skin, and green tea, these are a cool, green, and great-smelling alternative to plastic blocks. 50 blocks to a set. These will arrive April 6th, pre-order now… Earth Blocks Tree Bark, Earth Blocks Sawdust, Earth Blocks Coffee Bean, Earth Blocks Green Tea- $32 each.

We are very excited to be a part of New York Magazine’s Spring Preview 100 Spring Finds in Top Stores— our awesome new Eco Friendly Picnic Boxes are featured. I LOVE these things– they are reusable picnic boxes that hold up to 20 lbs and to quote myself, as NY Mag did “These eco picnic boxes contain everything you need for a green outdoor dining extravaganza. Your date and the planet will love you.” -Ann Cantrell, Owner. From COMPOSTABLE plates, bowls, trays, cups, napkins, even trash bags– it’s all in there. The three styles remind me of three different picnic spots in NYC- for the Today’s Date style (top)- which by the way comes with crayons to color in (clever, clever) maybe you and your date might check out Central Park. For the Urban Picnic Box (middle), perhaps Prospect Park might be more your thing (love the graffiti/boombox front and back). And for the Office Escape— (bottom), maybe a jaunt to Brooklyn Bridge Park (playing a little hookey never hurt anyone) or Riverside Park. Whatever you decide, these make wonderful gifts- for yourself or a special friend and remind us that spring will be here before you know it (this Sunday, officially!). Eco Friendly Modern Picnic Boxes- Today’s Date, Urban Picnic and Office Escape– $25 each.

We are psyched to be a part of this week’s New York Magazine’s Shop- A- Matic that features 100 new items in NYC stores. Each item was hand selected by the buyer or owner of the shop so you can really see what stores are EXCITED about for Spring. I wrote about our Personalized Classics Alice in Wonderland book (you can read quote online)— which I wrote about here before, but is such a cool gift maybe you want to check it out again! $30.
