Perfect for the baby who needs the best of the very best
This. Is. A. Showstopper. Truly, the ultimate gift for baby. We can’t even begin to tell you how breathtakingly beautiful and amazingly functional the Inua Haus Canopy and Bumper Mat is. This is truly one baby item that will take you from the newborn phase, all the way through childhood – in fact, this is precisely how we’ve been enjoying it, with a baby and with older children. Each product from CreamHaus is made from the very best, safe, non-toxic materials – free of PVC, BPA, formaldehyde, phthalates, fire retardants and harmful VOCs.
The bumper mat begins as baby’s first play space, offering a super soft, padded, and safe place for them to nap, lounge and play. The raised sides keep baby contained inside the play space, and it’s large enough that mom or dad can even snuggle up with baby for a quick snooze together. Each mat comes with two arching fabric-covered bars that can be used to set up a mobile. You can hang some of baby’s toys from the arches, creating some visual intrigue and encouraging baby to begin learning how to reach for toys. The sides of the mat can be zipped up and tied together, making four walls, or you can leave one (or all) of the sides open. Each mat comes with a Chitosan-based, antibacterial and waterproof surface (and washable covers – no worries about stains, ever!), and measures 63 x 43 x 16 inches.
When baby is older, you can add on the Inua Haus canopy, turning your bumper mat into a magnificent, whimsical tent, with breezy curtains. This becomes the perfect fort for older babies and children, ideal for playing, resting, reading, playing house, and letting their imaginations run wild. The Inua Haus canopy will reach a peak 59 inches, and is constructed with simple metal poles and plastic connectors, plus the lightweight fabric canopy.

Perfect for the guy who would appreciate a gorgeous wedding ring with a piece of history infused inside.
We can’t stop raving enough about the beautiful and unique rings that Rustic & Main brings to the gifting forum, and we are fully confident that any man would find a piece on their site that makes him say, “That’s so cool!” In 2014, owner and creator Mike started developing carpel tunnel symptoms in his hands and his traditional white gold wedding ring started bothering his finger. He crafted his first wooden wedding ring, and the next day, people began asking him where he got it. He knew he was immediately on to something good, and had to perfect the craftsmanship by using the bentwood technique. A bentwood ring is created by using a thin strip of flexible wood and wrapping it around a dowel near the intended ring size. As the wood is being wrapped, a fast drying epoxy is used to bond layer to layer. The result is an extremely strong, beautiful wood ring. Mike didn’t want to ever utilize cheap veneers, and low quality wood, though- he wanted to seek out the wood with history and with a story of its own. So he uses wood from the teak of an old US Navy ship, or aged whiskey barrels, or a WW1 rifle. Like we said, cool, right?
This particular ring pictured is made out of Elk Antler that is sourced directly from Colorado’s bull elk. The result is a light colored, marble-like look that is lightweight, and beautifully unique. The wooden inlay is off the US Navy ship, USS North Carolina. The USS North Carolina (BB-55) was built in 1940 and commissioned for service in April of 1941. She was the newest and fastest battleship which the US had ever created and would go on to lead every major naval offensive in WWII, earning 15 battle stars. After her decommissioning in June of 1947 and subsequent restoration project years later, the Teak wood of her original decks were made available to the public in limited supply.
Mike is a former US Navy veteran himself, and hand crafts every single ring himself from his home in North Carolina. He proudly says that every single ring is “Made in the USA,” and each piece has a bit of American history intertwined into it as well. Mike is also a talented writer, and you can get to know him more personally on his blog, Wolf & Iron.
Note: Since every single ring is made by hand, early ordering is important to receive in time by Christmas. Please allow 6-8 weeks for the ring to be created.
