Nook Sleep Systems came to be out of a parent’s need for an organic crib mattress that went above and beyond what was currently available; one that wasn’t astronomically priced and one that was more than simply cotton, with the ability to breathe and actually look good sans sheets. Their first product was that mattress they sought after; a modern, dual-sided designer mattress that their babies could sleep on as is, and that also featured their core values in children’s gear: health, safety, breathability, quality, and beauty. Now they’ve taken those same values and created more mattresses, plus pillows, play mats, changing pads, and a slew of other products that the whole family can enjoy.

If your kids want a puppy for Christmas, and that’s just not going to happen – no shame, parents! – you can still give them the responsibility of pet ownership, just on a slighter smaller scale. Gift them a Classic 15L Aquarium with LED light by BiOrb and watch their eyes light up, by both the excitement of this modernly designed fishbowl and the automatic Moonlight LED lighting that emits a soft blue glow when the lights are dimmed.
Once you open the box, everything you need to get started is at your fingertips. All your kids need to do is find which box under the tree the fish are wrapped up in!
Rest assured that both the fish and your kiddos will remain safe, especially if little Nemo is making his home in your child’s room. This aquarium is made from heavy duty acrylic, which is 10 times stronger than glass and 50% lighter. Go ahead and give your fish a room makeover, by adding any of BiOrb’s decorative accessories to the aquarium, such as some feng shui pebbles and greenery.
- Acrylic material: 10 times stronger than glass, 50% lighter, and 93% clearer
- True 5 Stage Filtration
- Low voltage
- Moonlight LED lighting
- Filter cartridge
- Includes everything you need in the box – just add water and fish!

Selling over a million aquariums all around the world, BiOrb is passionate about keeping their aquariums and accessories modernly designed – unlike anything you’ve ever seen before – and their customer service top notch, making fish-keeping easy and fun for everyone.

About Eco Flower
Eco Flower began two years ago, and was conceived by a single mom of two daughters who aspired to one day be an entrepreneur and be featured on ABC’s Shark Tank, even though she was living in poverty and off welfare at the time. Shark Tank inspired her to get off the couch, quit her desk job, and pursue her dream of opening up a company that would gift people bouquets made from recycled material flowers. Now, she has a 3,000 sq ft facility, almost 100 employees, a (small, but beautiful) home that she bought – and, best of all, confidence! After trying out for Shark Tank 4 times, her episode finally aired November 4th and she strategically partnered with Mark Cuban.

Bamboo Swaddle & Hat by Woombie
How many times are new parents asked, “Is your baby sleeping through the night yet?” More often than not, the answer is a disgruntled, “No.” But some parents know the secret to getting babies to sleep longer – and one of our favorite tricks – is the Woombie swaddle.
The Woombie Mod Swaddle is made from an uber-soft, stretchy, luxurious organic bamboo/spandex blend that hugs your child, mimicking the snug fit of the womb. This snug fit helps to reduce your baby’s Moro reflex, which can wake them up suddenly at night.
The Mod Swaddle has an adjustable knot on the bottom, allowing you to fit this to your baby’s size and adds a bit of flair to this staple sleepwear item. Available in 5 different colors (shown here in Metro), there’s a color for every baby; and it zips right up from the top and the bottom, with a two-way zipper (makes middle-of-the-night diaper changes oh-so-easy).
You’ll adore Woombie’s bamboo knotted hat. Made from the same organic bamboo/spandex blend as the Mod Swaddle, this hat will quickly become your go-to clothing item to top off your baby’s outfit each day. The super soft fabric slides onto baby’s head easily, and won’t bother him or her with scratchy seams or tags. These knotted hats definitely have a trendy appeal that will have people constantly asking you where you found such an adorable hat (ask us how many times we’ve directed strangers to Woombie’s website!).
- 95% Organic Bamboo/5% Spandex
- Gently swaddles baby with ergonomic shape
- Lightweight and breathable
- Helps reduce Moro reflex, allowing baby to sleep better
- Available in 5 colors
- 95% Organic Bamboo/5% Spandex

The Noor Aromatherapy Diffuser from ZAQ is very stylish, yet doesn’t jump out at you as something out of place. It fits subtly into any room or decor.

The color changing feature is soothing, and when you combine that with a calming essential oil to diffuse, you will find your entire family is relaxed and free of stress. Not all diffusers work well, but this one does. ZAQ knows what they are doing. It is a mid-sized diffuser that runs for up to 4 hours with an automatic shut off.
Perfect gift for families who need the benefits of aromatherapy in their homes.
ZAQ was created to help every home become a place of tranquility. This company believes in the power of aromatherapy and offers the best products for anyone to use easily.

They created a diffuser with a ceramic core from Japan. This ceramic core holds up over time and is one of the reasons that ZAQ diffusers are superior. Your whole self, mind, body, and spirit can improve through essential oil aromatherapy. Keep aromatherapy simple yet powerful with a diffuser from ZAQ.

About Little Box of Rocks
Little Box of Rocks was started by Kiera Fogg, who is a mother of 3 special little kiddos, and grew up spending her time in the Canadian wilderness. She was fascinated by nature’s power to uplift and enlighten the spirit, and searching the area for fool’s gold and amethyst was a way that she connected with nature, emotionally and spiritually. She wanted to bottle up those feelings, and be able to enable that feeling to be sent across the world. What emerged was the crystal bouquet: a unique inspirational gift that uses crystals as little messengers for our well-wishes. She believes that giving is the act through which connection occurs.
